hey meme,
I don't know if you've noticed the new "schools" feature on lj. i thought it was amusing and i was going to add it to schooldaze. but i can't seem to figure out how. the option isnt on the userinfo page like it is in mine. anyway if you can figure it out let me know.

and since i'm here, a school related note. Mike chaves called last night. turns out he's not with tara anymore. she made him chose between her and his son. thank god hye was intellegent enough to chose jd. so now he's dating again. it was an ammusing conversation. plus sam's new boyfriend wants to beat him and leave him in the woods. ah, the high school drama continues. i really do miss the place sometimes. if we were still there i could have laughed at him in person, rather than over the phone. though its nice to know that some things don't change, he still agrees that i'm a bitch ;) so all is right with the world.

urge to update [16 Dec 2004|02:33pm]

hey meme, i got the urge to update. i figure i already updated my other one twice today and its not even three in the afternoon yet. i dont really have anything specific to tlak about i figured i'd come on and start rambling and see what came out. so this may turn out to be a really long post. sorry in advance. anyway, here goes

That weekend
you know the one i'm talking about.
the dance, the sleepover. the weekend that started it all.
me, you, jim, melissa, leslie. it was the one weekend that brought us all to where we are today. leslie probably wouldnt even be in our lives if not for that week. that was one hell of a weekend. to look back on it now it was a great weekend. we all had a good time. but who knew that that one weekend could change our whole lives. i kissed jim for the first time. we all got to know leslie, you danced with dan, my dad realized just what goofy teenage girls we could be, bbb was formed, my wallpaper is forever scarred by invisible highliter (sidenote: remind me to get a black light bulb before you come up, so we can see exactly what it was we wrote.) that was the weekend where you began your aversion to Kix. i dont think i'll ever forget it. you know a week later i was still scared to go near a black light in case the highliter hadnt come off yet. and that was the first time i went anywhere with jim. we went to the mall with my sister and her friend jess. and jim wanted to go into spencer's and i had to tell him no. he was kinda confused. i wonder if it still would have been there? we should do it again, just to see how long it really lasts. you know whats kinda funny. i dont really remember much about alex that weekend except that she was in the car on the ride home, and we nearly blinded her with our glowing. i know she spent the night and left the next day. but that friday night isnt the night i remember. it was after she left. the highliter, the park, walking around, bbb, kix, it seems so long ago, yet i still remember most of it. just a little fuzzy around the edges i suppose. you know i wonder if i changed my wallpaper if missy and leslie would finally break up. i mean i said that i loved jim on that wall, and we're still together. and i know you said you loved dan on those walls, but thats the exception to the rule, cuz ur both gay. lol (sorry) maybe its the writing on the walls thats keeping them together. well maybe we dont have to get rid of the wallpaper (i wouldnt want to jinx anything with jim and i) but maybe we could just cross out all the melissa leslie stuff. just cover it up. pretend it was never there. undo the last few years of there lives. that would be great wouldnt it? to have the old leslie back. and hell maybe even the old melissa. though i'm not sure i could ever forgive her.

that dance. what a dance it was. i think its one of the only dances i remember so vividly. the rest of them seem to blur together somehow. the pure and amazing wonder that one night can create. i remember so much of it. even now, over three and a half years later. three and a half years older, and its still just as important as it was when i was a giggly little 16 year old (less than a week from 17) god do you realize how long ago that was? it may not seem like much. but it was really lifetimes ago. jim was shy around me. imagine that, he was worried that I wouldnt like Him. he even gave alex hand signals behind my back while we danced, just to make sure she thought he was doing all right. he followed me around like a puppy that night. oh how things have changed. now hes more of a dog. lol. and he kissed me. he told me earlier in the night he would, i didnt really believe him. i figured someone who needed such reassurance from my friends wouldnt have enough guts to kiss me. we werent even going out. and alex was afraid he might try to swallow my face. lol. you know he hadnt even intended to hang out with me that night. he went to hang out with cassie kegly. but she ended up spending time with some of her friends that he didnt really like. so it was my good fortune that i happened to be there. where would i be right now, had i not. or had cassie paid attentoin to him. i guess we'll never know, and i dont think i want to. it would be kinda nice to go back and have that night again. just once. just to remember what it was all like as care free as we were then. though to us every little thing meant so much, but in comparison to life since then...it really meant nothing at all. life has changed so much since then. i dont think i can even remember who i really was when i was just 16. back then the hardest thing i had ever had to do was break up with matt. and the most pain anyone had ever caused me was when chris broke up with me. at 16 i thought i was never going to be happy again. i was so naive. its amazing to look back upon it now. and remember it all.

well not all, everyday a little more of that world slips away from me. which is why i'm kinda glad i got this entry in now. its probably one of the more important ones. one that i think i'll want to remember later on. remember where everything started. and who we all used to be. i suppose this post came out a bit melodramatic. but oh well. we were melodramatic back then. i had intended to write about more. and in fact i have a whole list. but i think that may be enough for now. anymore and i think my mind may just explode. but maybe i'll update again soon. try to get a few in before i go home for winter break. i'm feeling very reminiscent and would like to get that feeling down in words before it all slips away.

You're first party, Freshmen year. Sam being Sam ninija kicked the bathroom door open on poor Kim. We all got a kick out of it, but Kim was mortified.

I remember one day in barn Chistine Leit getting head butted by a cow and flew back into the wall. Heidi was pooped on, that was interesting. Samantha and David were the only kids in the class that Sydney wouldn't attack. And I was petrified that I'd fall into the barn cleaner.

Sometime Freshmen year [07 Mar 2004|09:39pm]

The first time we got the whole crew together for a trip to the mall. We were all in Spencer's and Jay Mashke found this bottle holder with a 60 year old 8964 pound women on it and announced 'Looks like Maryann' not realizing I was in the next aisle over. I walked over took it from him, smacked him in the face with it, that balled my fist and punched him in the gut. I was so mad, I then left the store and sat out by the exit shaking with anger.

Barn 1998 [26 Feb 2004|04:59pm]

Ms. L's sophomore class had gym, so she took half the class into the stables to care for the horses. The rest of us stayed in the barn cleaned up after the cows. We got done first and went to sit in the sillage pile to relax. Ms. Lingrin came out and screamed that if we were finished we should've gone to the stable to help the rest of the class. Firstly it wasn't out job, Freshmen aren't suppose to clean up after the horses, secondly why should we have had to twice as much work as everyone else. I was VERY POed.

Meet the wall 1999 [25 Feb 2004|08:03pm]

Walking back from lunch toward Mr. M's room for history. Minding my own business until wam, I'm pushed up against the wall. I couldn't escape because there was a payphone in front of me, a wall to the right of me, Dan to the left of me and his arm behind me. I was stuck there, as he leaned in real close and I was so nervous. You of course grabbed my book bag and ran, leaving me there. I thought I was going to die when he held up the note I'd written him that morning. Evidentally my handwriting it to small. Forcing me to buy him a magnifying glass. Tragically he was to stupid to understand the joke.

who let the cows out [25 Feb 2004|02:46pm]

do remember that day in landscaping. there was a disturbance on the other side of the road at the barn. we all get up to look out the window and there are cows where there shouldnt be cows. all the barn kids and the arbor kids were standing in a semicircle trying to get the cows back into the barn. you could see ms. castonguay standing there with her green hard hat on, arms spread wide. like any cow would have ever been afraid of her. come to find out later, mark let the cows out. and as far as he said it wasnt an accident. anyway. thought it was funny. thats enough of an entry for now

Health Class [25 Feb 2004|07:37am]

krissy22247
[ mood | nostalgic ]

i decided today i would talk about health class with Mr. J. its one of the quicker topics i have. i do have tons more topics but they might take awhile.

anyway, freshman health class... where to begin... lets start with the fact that it was sex ed. that was just an issue in itself. our class was probably the most immature to ever go through that school. our lovely nick decided to take advantage of the nature of the class to try and satisfy his curiosity. he asked mr. J. "why is pubic hair curly?" isnt that a lovely question. i don't think mr. j ever did answer that question.

another fun time with a portuguese fellow was when i insulted scott mota before class. i dont remember what i said, but it must have made him cranky. it was before anyone else had come into the class and he decided to chase me around the room with a stapler from the teachers desk. it was interesting. i'm not sure what he would have actually done if he caught up to me. would he have merely hit me with it, or actually tried to staple me? i guess we'll never know

another lovely portuguese class mate was one josh medieros. that kid was worse than his brother. as i'm sure you remember, he sat next to me. and behind samantha of all people. they thought pen fighting was a good idea. i'm pretty sure i still have a few scars on my arm from those. mostly from sam. she was vicious. another type of horseplay involved bottles of water. apparently water fights were also a good pastime. they were very interesting. i think it bugged the teachers though. but we had fun. then of course there were you guys insisting to me that josh liked me. which i seriously doubt. he could have had almost anyone in our grade, why would he have wanted me. what i never told you guys, though i'm pretty sure you knew, no matter how much i denied it. i did have a crush on him. though i think that might be because he actually paid attention to me. not because of any real affection i had for him.

i thnk thats really all the important aspects of freshman health class. it taught me a good lesson. always try to avoid being in a sex ed class with two many portuguese guys from fall river.

Summer 1998 [25 Feb 2004|08:59am]

[ mood | awake ]

My testing day, hrm lemme think about it. I remember Amy slept over my house the night before, but that was no big thing because she spent the entire summer at my house. My mom told me not to go looking like a shlub, so I put on a pair a jeans and a white tank top, just for the sake of having one even though my blonde hair was to short to tie back, I brought a scrunchi too.

Schaffer was there passing out gum and he'd remembered from my interview that I liked volleyball and mentioned I should try out. I thought that was really nice of him. Then it was time to get to work. I was fairly certain I'd be put in retard level everything, luckily I must have done well since freshmen I had the same scedual as the person that would turn out to be a validictorian.

At break Amy and I hooked up with Candice and Liz Greenlee, they were cool then. On the way out the door we noticed short girl in black with a greeen purse and white scrunchi in her hair. Amy delcared 'Snot'. I did my normal smile and nod and we walked outside. I then made a comment about the other short girl in the too small pink sweater. I had no clue you guys would at some point become real close friends to me.

We (Amy, Candice, Liz and I) were going to walk to the museum but only got halkway there before Mr. Schaffer called us back, bummer. So we all agreed to meet outside by the flagpole on the first day and go in to together. Which didn't happen.

I had my interview with Schaffer and I was sooo nervous. I didn't even know interviews were that day. My school had had so many people applying that they'd broken them into two. I was in the second group. I was just lucky enough that in middle school I dressed sort of preppy most of the time. So when they called me to the office, I looked decent in jeans and a light blue sweater. I even had my hair pulled up in a butterfly clip. Gag me. I remember telling Schaffer the reason I wanted to go to Aggie was for the freedom. They wait listed in the beginning and I was pissed cuz they excpeted Amy and I got better grades then her. So 4th term I worked twice as hard as ever and my honor roll. I even got a B in math, which you know I'm terrible at. I recieved my letter over Summer vacation and was soooo excited.

Arbor Jamboree 2000 [24 Feb 2004|10:35am]

I remember leaving the jamboree to go to the lunch room. I think there were only a handful of us there. Maybe you, me, Alex, Steph and Chris. I remember distinctly sipping my Hawaiian punch and having Chris throw an arm around my shoulder. My hands suddenly started shaking and I missed my mouth spilling the juice all over the table. It was weird because I'd always been the one telling you guys that Chris was just Chris no big deal. Then all of a sudden he had me completely unhinged.

The Aggie Recruiter [24 Feb 2004|09:15am]

way back before any of us set foot on the aggie campus i saw an aerial photo of it. it was in a large wooden case carried by the aggie recruiter, Mr. Pavao. i'm sure you remember him. big jolly guy, shoe polish black hair. well he came into my 8th grade classroom at Dominican Academy with his big aerial photo. none of the other girls were real impressed, but i was. anyway, the best part of that presentation was as he walked down the aisle to the front of the room, he whacked one of the girls in the head with that big heavy wooden frame. it was great, i almost had a heart attack trying to keep myself from rolling on the floor laughing. all mr. pavao did that day was apologize, talk a lottle, and sweat. but i was hooked. i was determined to go to Bristol County Agricultural High School. later that year i had my interview with mr. pavao, i was glad to see him again. i thought he was great, and he was very nice to me. a few weeks after that i got my acceptance letter from mr. schaeffer. i still have it.

Started high school, and was petrified. Relied heavily on Amy for the first day, despite the fact she was already trying to ditch me. I remembered Becky Levesque from volleyball tryouts and was glad she was in all my classes. It gavem me someone to talk to. Also had the same scedual as Sam and Kristin, but I didn't really talk to them much the first few days. Basically becuase I thought Krissy was a snob and Sam was going to beat me up. I wound up also having lunch with Missy, since niether of us wanted to deal with the snotts at our table we moved seat. This would put us at the back table where some of us sat for 3 out of the 4 years were were there.

ok meme, here we go. i'm not gonna start off big because i do have studing to get too. but i suppose i'll start with the earliest Aggie memory. the summer of 1998. we were naive little 8th grade graduates waiting nervously to take our placement exams. waiting in the hall near the front door i sat with my arms crossed, wearing all black with my hair tied up in a bun. i had my stupidlittle mini bacpack purse with me. i looked across the hall and saw a girl who looked like she might be portuguese and had blonde hair. i thought, well that cant possibly be her natural hair color (no offense hun) some one with skin that color doesnt have light blonde hair. i remember you were talking to this skinny little mouse looking thing (we know her as amy nunes) i also remember seeing alex and thinking, that sweater is much too small for her, and it is showing off her gut. i remember schaeffer gave us gum. i took mine out to the parking lot and handed it to my mom. she opted to wait for me to finish rather than come back later and pick me up. she told me i should go talk to someone. i ended up talking to patty. next to the big tree out in the driveway. though at that time she went by the name tricia (i thought it was odd later durong the school year when everyone started calling her patty cuz i knew she had told me her name was tricia. i thought i was really confused, turned out kids at school just all of a sudden decided to call her patty. which i think is good, cuz it suited her better.) anyway, i went back in and finished the test. and thats pretty much all i can remember about that day. wow that was longer than i thought. gotta go study now
