I have about 35 minutes before my next class so I decided to make a ittle post.
The roommate search is going very well so far, but I'm sure it'll get better. I also got a few replies form people wishing me luck which makes me even more optimistic ^^
I just went and talked to a woman from the public health department and she gave me alot of useful information. I also have an appointment set up with the head of the department so that I can ask her all of my questions.
Hmm...what else? I'm really sleepy. Like EXTREMELY sleepy and I'm about to go to my most boring class ever. HISTORY. I hate that class and I'm probably going to fall asleep then I have to go to work for four hours *sigh* I can't wait until eight o'clock so that I can take a nice hot shower and relax.
I SERIOUSLY have to work on my Japanese. There's no way that I'm going to get any better if I don't get a little conversation practice. It's like you can give me a bunch of questions and I can answer them on paper just fine, but if you ask me a question and tell me to say the answer, I get nervous and second guess myself -__- I need more practice, but unfortunately I never found anyone willing to skype chat with me on a regular basis. Once in a while I'll bump into someone on sharedtalk, but most of the time I'm not on at like three in the morning [five pm Japan time] to talk to any native speakers. I can't even talk to Dani chan as often as I used to TT_TT
Man, am I sleepy. I think I'm going to go get a hot chocolate with a shot of caramel from Starbucks.

I did a search for all the different communities that have the words new jersey, new york, or japan in it and I've decided that I'm going to cross post a roommate ad. I'm actually going to post it here first so that you guys can give me your input on what I should change or maybe even add. I would really appreciate the help ^__^
Okay, here goes:
CALLING ALL JAPANOPHILE'S ^_^
Hello! I'm Tamara [or Tammy...whichever you prefer] and I am desperately in search of a roommate. How bout I give you a little info?
Me: For starters I'm 20 and I'm a Nutrition major at a university in New Jersey. I'm a very liberal and very much in love with Japanese culture. I don't currently have any form of religious background. I guess you could say I'm free spirited and a borderline hippie. My sole motivation in life is to live as long and as happily as I can....[and to drink bubble tea! Lot's and lot's of mango bubble tea :D]
What am I looking for?
You should be...female, kind-hearted, honest, gay-friendly, responsible, reliable, willing to communicate, tidy, japanophile and quirky/goofy/nerdy...or a combination of the three. I would also prefer a fellow college student, but I [obviously] don't discriminate.
I'm looking for someone that is willing to share a STUDIO apartment [trying to keep the cost down!] that is about 20 minutes away from William Paterson University in Wayne, New Jersey and it would be decorated Japanese style which means we get to use futon ^^ I don't really know exactly how it would be decorated, but that's because it should be a team effort rather than an image in my head. I really want to find someone that wants to be friends not JUST roommates. Someone that would say "Hey! Let's save as much money as we can and go on a road trip next month!" I would be all for it :D Someone that knows how to have RESPONSIBLE fun. Someone that realizes that life is too short for us to not make the best out of it.
Here's the best thing about my roommate search...I don't plan on doing this until next summer. That's right! Summer 2010 which gives us plenty of time to get to know each other and find a great place that we could really make our own.
So do you fit this rather unique description?
I hope so cause everyone I know lives light years away TT_TT Message me if you're interested ^^
Well? What do you guys think?

I dunno. This would definitely be a challenge, but I guess I should start looking. Unfortunately, I don't know where.

I plan on buying a car by this time next year and I bumped into some really good sights and some info that should come in handy so I figured I should post them here. I just have to try and remember that I posted the entry heh ^_^''
Liability is required.
If this is your first car, yes, you'll have to buy auto insurance before you drive your shiny new car off the dealer's lot. If you are financing the purchase, the lender may require that you buy a policy with comprehensive and collision coverages. Not all states require the purchase of liability coverage.

It's been a while since I managed to develop a crush on a straight girl. I tried to deny it at first but it's so obvious. Nick even calls her my "wife" lol
When i was at work today she came up to me and asked me a few questions about applying for housing next year. I just realized that I won't see her very often next semester cause she's going to live in a different building *pout*
She's short and I'm pretty sure that she doesn't have the slightest clue of what my name is, but I know her name because the other day a really nice man came into the building while i was talking on the phone and he overheard me talking about the
She has the cutest freckles in the world! >_<
I decided to write about her cause I just had a dream during my unintentional nap] that I was an RA and I just held a meeting and she looked like she wasn't in a good mood [which would be really weird because she always has that amazing smile on her face] so at the end of the meeting I was just trying to make conversation and somehow we ended up going back to her room. It was a single room and it was really dull but it had a bed, a dressing table, a nightstand, and a tv stand and a little one seater couch. It was pretty cool. i wish the dorms were really like that. So I don't really remember what we were talking about but I do remember commenting on how cool the room was and after a while she was sitting on the bed and I went to kneel next to the bed and we were both watching something on the tv then she turns to me and gives me a random hug and I'm just like..."where'd that come from?" and she gives me a cute smile and hugs me again. I got up and sat next to her on the bed [cause the hug was like really lopped sided since I was sitting lower than she was] and then we started hugging again and the hug eventualy turned into a nice little kiss...then a knock on the door [boo!]. Apparently there were DAs outisde her door looking for me because they wanted to know where they could get cleaning rags. [??wtf??? O__O]
So yeah...really weird/desirable dream *smiles*

Like I said before, things have been going really well right now, but I am waiting for "something" before I post. Hopefully if things go well I'll have good news to tell. I've also been thinking about tatoos. I know that I only want one pride tatoo and MAYBE [HUGE MAYBE] another one. I'm thinking a rainbow star bracelet as opposed to the rainbow butterfly tramp stamp that I always said that I wanted. I'm thinking that it'll probably look something like the one that Alice has around her arm but I want it to be brighter. I dunno...we shall see. I can't get it for another 3 [or so] years anyway -__-
I guess that's all for now <3

I'm sooo happy right now ^___^ I have so much to catch up on. I feel like I abandoned everyone and I doubt that any of my skype friends remember me *sigh* this sucks, but yeah. I downloaded aim, skype, utorrent, limewire...what am i missing? I've been trying to update everything. THe bad news is that I'm at home so my time is very limited. The real fun starts when I go back to school on Sunday. I was ready to go as soon as I got here lol
I have a few things to talk about so expect an update on Monday. BYES ^_^

Also, my laptop is stil not fixed. My dad gave it to his friend and what did his friend say? He thinks it's the motherboard. What did I tell my dad two weeks ago? It's the motherboard. So now I'm going to have to go back to school without a computer even though I could have sold it and used the money that I got back to buy a new one by now but of course, my parents never listen to a single thing that i say. This means no L word, no Niptuck, no Supernatural, no anime, no movies, and limited LJ time until further notice.
I'm dying to go back to school.
I think that I'm slowly going out of my mind. I just really need to get these applications through and hope for the best. If I don't get into any of them then...I don't want to think about what happens then...*sigh*
Wish me luck <3

A ball is rolling up in my throat and my eyes are glossing over.
I feel so alone.
I'm gonna cry.
I just know I'm gonna cry.
So..what am I supposed to do? I'm currently $44,000+ in debt and I'm not on my way to any career and I have parents that aren't willing to compromise. What the fuck am I supposed to do? My life really sucks right now.
I'm so lost...
