It's kind of ironic...


So not only did they fake the awesome fireworks, but now also there was lipsynching. Oh well, I guess looks are always more important than talent no matter how old or where...

I really need to update my icons... those are two years old.

Other than that, I got food poisoning, or I think it is according to WebMD, you know they give you like 20 different choices and just one of them isn't deadly, so I chose the non-deadly one because I have to be positive.
I still have a really bad headache, but I'm sure that's from my head being in a weird angle while barfing the whole night. Hopefully it will go away.

I have to come up with a logo for my site and it's so hard, because you know, it's easy to come up with something for someone else, but when it comes to you, you don't even know where to begin. So far I have a few sketches and drafts, but nothing convinces me yet.

Nothing deep I know, but there's so much I want to say that somehow I can't get myself to say it. Maybe I'll just surprise you all later.

I'm Back

Wow...So much to say, but I think that if I start posting reegularly, we'll catch up in no time.

Let's see... I'm single again, I have an adorable nephew who has left his milk mark on every shirt and blouse I own, I might just be sleeping 35 hours a week on a good week, I've concluded that 2 or 3 year relationships that end up bad are actually fake marriages, not bad considering this is all a work in process.

Oh yeah, if the person you love doesn't love you, please leave and don't try to make things "work" because they symply won't. If the person you love tells you that they love you but can't "do this right now", then dump their ass, is not going anywhere. If you like someone who likes someone else, get over it, there are plenty of people out there who want to be with you, trust me on that one, is just that we're too focused on that ONE person who does nothing for us but to give meaning to every sappy song/movie/book out there, and that's how other people get rich.

Oh LJ, we meet again.

damn, it's been a long time

Wow, this is how long since the last time I intended to post: (Thanks to the magic of LJ and its capability to save really old drafts, this was suppose to be what I was gonna say long time ago)

"I am kind of torn. On one side we have the MacBook and on the other hand we have the iMac. I have my Pro, but after a few years and two Windows PCs that together cost more than my pretty baby, I need and update.
Now, my thing is, I've had both desktops and laptops, but I'm not planning on getting the MacBook Pro again, just the regular one, only because I don't think I'll need all of the extra memory, and speed if I'm only going to use it for regular stuff. Maybe in two years I'll get the Pro, but for now I'm good.

Anyway, Leopard comes out next Friday, and I'm going to wait at least a month before I buy my new Mac, I just don't know which one to pick yet, but I do know what I want to do with it when I finally get it."

2008, there is a new MacBook Air, and I'm not thrilled about it because I don't like the black keyboard among other things (one USB port?!?!?!).

Anyway, hopefully now that I am done writing a paper that took me almost three months I'll have more free time.

so it's been a while since I last posted. Almost two months, but idk, LJ is not the same anymore, or maybe I don't care as much anymore.

Anyway, nothing really exciting, well, nothing of what you're used to reading. School is school, sometimes I wonder if I'm doing the right thing or not, but I keep doing what I have to do.

My brother's gf keeps grwoing that belly, and now we know it's a boy. That's going to be something, I'm actually excited since he started moving. Then I thought about that. Whenever I'm pregnant, the first time the kid moves I'm going to feel weird, but then I'll get used to it, so if the kid doesn't move, I'm going to start freaking out because now I'm used to the little peanut moving.
Another perk of being pregnant: my mother. She can't wait to see that baby. I actually think she'll forget about the rest of us once the little peanut pops into this world, which might not be so bad, unless she forgets that she does have a first beautiful daughter who might not be giving her a little kid anytime soon, but still likes her cooking.

Speaking of cooking, I've been watching a lot of cooking shows, and I actually enjoy watching Iron chef America, haha! Man, the other day they made this amazing looking grilled caramelized salmon, and I was craving it so bad, I went to the market and bought the stuff to make it, and it was good.

K, well, that's it for now.

I hate the MTA!

I hate that NYC can't function withouth public transportation!

I hate having to depend on the crappy service we get from the MTA! Clean your sewers damnit! Then maybe you wouldn't be overflooded!

I don't like Dunkin Donuts' girls with attitudes. I said Decaf, don't roll your eyes at me!

I want to be in bed while the AC is on 65 degrees, then I can fall asleep.

I want the Fall to get here already, just the Fall, I don't like the winter with its slushy snow, unfurtanetely, I'm not a kid anymore and I don't have Snow Days, so I have to go to work the day after it snows.

I guess it's safe to tell you now

People say it’s never good to give out the news during the first trimester, but we’re finally done with that and the fourth month has started so it’s safe to talk about it now.

There’s a little peanut swimming around growing arms and whatever else little peanuts do in the first three months of gestation.


Ok, so I wasn’t so thrilled when I first got the news, but you know what? My brother is very young, stubborn, doesn’t have a real job, but I think this can all work out if he really wants it to work out. I like his girlfriend, and she seems like a nice girl, not what I was expecting right now, but hey, a little peanut is on the way and I already care for it (we don’t know what it is yet, so I can call it “it” for now).

I’ve been doing all the reading, and looking at the baby stuff everywhere. It’s not my kid, but I think I have a better judgment than those two knuckleheads at this moment. Oh yeah, my brother had to move in with her because for years I’ve been hearing about how if we do something stupid like that, we would get kicked out of the house. He didn’t exactly get kicked out, but my mom firmly asked “When are you moving out?” after he dropped the bomb on us. Now I have an extra room at home, and well, it’s kind of weird, but I already have plans for it. I know, I’m so bad, but I kept telling him “If you do something stupid, I’m turning your room into my private office”.

Great, so now I can tell you all about it as it develops.

The Chronicles of Jess: The Wisdom (Teeth) I No Longer Have


On Thursday my four wisdom teeth were removed.

I was so nervous, I actually had a 5 page txt message ready to send out to you all (in my phone list) telling you how if I ever told you I cared about you I was for serious. They were gonna put me to sleep, and that scared me.

So, steve took me to the dentist's office on Thursday at 8 a.m. I went in and they had everything ready. The dentist told me everything was going to be alright, then he asked if my mom had signed the consent form, and I was like "uh...why would my mom need to do that?" and he said "How old are you?" and I said "26" and he looked at me and puzzledly said "Oh...well, then I guess you get to sign it".
When he was more or less explaining the procedure, I was thinking of what would happen if I died? The first thing I thought was "My mom will probably have a heart attack and would never recover from losing me, my dad would cry and keep all of my Curious George and Speed Racer things because he knows of the love I have for them, my brother would cry a lot, and name his first daughter after me, or something. And Steve? What would Steve do? that was on my mind when the doctor asked "What's your favorite drink Jess?" and he put the mask over my face, so I said "Well, there's this place where they make an excellent Watermelon Mojito... Hey Doc, do you know how to make the perfect mojito?"
"No, but why don't you tell me"
"well, let me tell you, first you...kinda..."

I woke up crying like a little girl, and all I heard was "Jessi, it's ok, wake up, wake up" and the nurse was drying my tears and asking why was I crying? I said "because it hurts" I don't know how long it took, but Steve was waiting for me, and I instantly went Celebrity Mode, I put my dark shades on and got in the car, he got my medicine, and I took my first Vicodin pill. I got home and slept until it was time to take another one, and another one, and another one. For the past 5 days I've been on Vicodin, milk, two bowls of soup, and a Max Brenner chocolate milkshake that Min brought for me. All of this while reading a great book (The Thirteenth Tale), playing my DS and watching the complete Sex & The City series, and the Mets games. What else could a convalescent girl ask for? Never to go through dental pain again.

I'm the mellowest I've ever been, and it's not so good, because everything is moving slowly. haha.

On top of that, my family came from Chicago, and I can't take my cousin to many places because of how i'm feeling, so my plan of taking her to the new Justin Timberlake's restaurant might me out of the question, because I can't really eat much, I don't know, we'll see.

Hey There...

I've been thinking a lot these past two weeks. My birthday is in about two weeks, and I am so not looking forward to it.

I guess I'm finally realizing there are certain things I can't get away with anymore, I can't go around hoping that if something bad happens, my parents will be there, I mean, they are, sometimes they still think I'm 5 the way they treat me, making sure I'm doing well, and then it hits them that no matter how cute I still am, I'm not the little girl they used to know. It hits me too.

The problem is not my age, is that I'm not where I want to, and it bothers me, and though my mom gives great advice (I swear she should do that for a living), it's still not what I wanted. Don't get me wrong, I've realized that the fact that I'm not done with school has made me go through other experiences, heck, if you've read this for a long time, you know what I'm talking about, and though there's no better school than life itself, I don't think I can make money by going through the things I have gone through.

Oh well, I guess I have no choice but to continue la escuela until I'm finally done. Then, I can start complaining for real.

Ladies Night

We were meeting up with a couple of friends. We were only missing my friend Aura and we were on our way to get her (since she went the wrong way for some reason) when she calls me almost crying:

Aura: Jess! Hurry up and come get me please!
Me: We’re like a block and a half away.
Aura: Hurry, I’m at the corner, I’m wearing a white dress and it just started raining
Me: It’s cool; I’m wearing a white top.
Aura: Yeah, but I’m not wearing panties.

We got there and I look at her and say “So...how much?” It wasn’t even raining hard and the scaffolding on the buildings helped, she just threw herself at me and was like “What took you so long?!?!” Uh, maybe the fact that we were waiting for you at the next corner and you went the wrong way might give you a better answer.

That night, one of us broke up with her boyfriend, one of us told her boyfriend he was a royal a$$wipe in front of us, another one said that all men are dogs, her ex-husband was and everyone else she’s been with.
Me? I got a txt from Steve asking how was I doing and then I got a call when he got home. I was upset because of the whole “When I’m hanging out with my friends I’m not taking you” thing, and then I thought about what he said about my friends’ way of thinking rubbing off on me. Trust me, I’m the one who trusts her boyfriend more than any of them, they tell me I shouldn’t be so nice, and you know, all of this psycho jealous crap.
Steve thinks I’m jealous, but man, if he was with one of these girls, he would go crazy, especially the way he is, all about invading space and crap, which is annoying ‘cause I’m so open about everything. I mean, I guess I try to see it if I was in the guy’s shoes, but then again, if I am told “when you do this, you hurt me” I would not do it again ‘cause I don’t want to hurt my special someone’s feelings, and that’s where I have to draw the line about understanding guys, ‘cause that part, I just don’t get.

Anyway, the girls make me laugh, and some of them make me upset, but that’s another story, which if it evolves this week, I’ll probably talk about it, if not, I’ll get over it.

Aura gave us false advertisement; she was wearing underwear after all. LoL!
