…and all I got was…

a w00bie face?!?

My brain still hasn’t recovered. I can’t write much more than…yay!?!

(We’ll see in November, right?)

Sigh.

At least I have these two girls to make me smile always.

I feel like the last couple of months my life has been on pause. I haven’t made any significant decisions, made any real plans, or made any real steps forward that I can really substantiate. This whole studying for the bar thing…I can’t wait for it to be over so I can start living again.

I can’t wait to invest my time and effort into something other than studying. I’m so over it.

But at the same time, I’m so NOT over it, because part of me wishes I just had a little bit more time to get more rules down. But like I’ve said before, time is an equalizer. Everybody gets the same amount; what we do with it is up to us.

But I think I feel this antsy because I know I’m leaving. Just a little over a week after taking the bar, I’ll be out of the LALA Land and back in the Yay. I don’t know if I’m ready. I feel like I should have invested more time in the people and the relationships I have here. I should have developed some a little bit more instead of pushing it back “till after the bar.” I feel like I should have shown my appreciation of others more instead of setting them aside “till after the bar.”  It’s paralyzing.

I want to be able to tell everyone that has meant so much to me here that I do care. Instead, I find myself skipping out on lunches and dinners, drinks and movies. Saying “next time” or “not now” or “please, just understand.”

I wish I had the power to do things differently. I really do.

But for now, I’m on Pause.

I can’t wait to Press Play.

…and by Play, I mean I’m busting out of the City of Angels and diving straight into Sin City!!!

HELL YEAH!!!

I’ve been watching Criminal Minds a lot lately. There’s just really nothing much on TV late at night, but there are some Criminal Minds reruns. There was a scene where they go through an “Un-Sub’s” (Unknown Subject) belongings. The Behavioral Analysis Unit goes through this guy’s stuff and makes all these assumptions about who he was, or what made him the way he was, or what the “trigger” was.

I looked around my room. What can someone tell about me based on the items in my room? Based on the books i have in my bookshelf, the kinds of shoes I have, my clothes, what’s in my bathroom, the pictures in the frames, the mix of neatness and order with hurried disarray.

They figured out the guy based on the minute and drastic changes in his drawings. I wonder (since I can’t draw to save my life) if they can figure me out based on my writings. Can you find my “trigger”? What drives me? What motivates me? Could they really tell from the stories that I write that I’ve changed?

It’s so interesting that there are people who can look at everything that surrounds the person and build a context of the life that person had. I look at my life and I can’t figure out how they would do it. I almost want to ask someone who works for the BAU to profile me. Just so I know who I am.

When you look at the people, the things you have and the things you create in your life…do you think they reflect who you think you are?

4th of July was a lot of fun bonding with my old high school friends again and being reminded exactly why our friendships have withstood the test of time, distance and even absence. We have all built our lives apart from each other. But every now and again, we come back, gravitating towards the sense of family that was built around Forensics, around weekends upon weekends spent in hotel rooms and airplanes traveling from one competition to another. This sense of family was also built around the same kinds of affinity for shenanigans, practical jokes, and theatricality.

So, on this particular 4th of July, while playing wii games and some weird coin toss game that Monte invented, and even a game of almost-tag, the following “punishments” were bestowed on the losers:

If you lose, you have to:

  1. Do your best Michael Jackson impersonation.
  2. Perform a 1 minute choreographed routine.
  3. Take a shot of “Git Nekkid” –> a special blended drink by Monte himself
  4. Do the Robot.

Here’s a vid of Sky and JP doing their “Too Sexy” routine, announced by Homie G himself.

Luckily, this was the only thing caught on video.

Haha!

Good times, guys! As always.

My friend Jamie (M) Y. married her best friend last year.

She was talking about cutting her hair, which led me to go through her old pictures so as to compare and give the best advice on length. I stumbled back into her wedding and engagement pictures. I remember when she and Hansen had both told me about this guy last year. He’s a good friend of Hansen’s and has done engagement pictures of some of our common friends.

So I start clicking through Jamie’s pictures.

Man, are they beautiful. Well, Jamie is beautiful and with Jared, they make a beautiful couple.  And their photographer just had a knack for the lighting, the mood, and just everything that makes engagement pictures make you want to believe in fairy tales.

I have to admit, I like the way you say your name. Every time I get a voicemail from you, “Hey, it’s me…” and then you say your name in that dry “Yes-it’s-me-again” tone. Sometimes you’ll say it really fast. Sometimes you’ll say it as an afterthought. Like you still wouldn’t expect me to know your voice over the phone. I like how you always leave a voicemail, too.

It’s a chance for me to hear your voice in the middle of the day…because you know I won’t call you back till the end of mine.

I have to admit, I like the way you answer my phone calls. “Hey!” Like you really mean it. “Hi there,” or “Hey you,” like you’ve been waiting for it.

It’s probably just wishful thinking on my part.

But, I have to admit, I do kind of maybe just a little bit sort of like you.
