We went out to breakfast the next morning and then i went by my aunts house to help her get the house ready for the wedding which is friday. I have to get my nails done, go tanning once more, get my hair done and then i am all ready! umm... well it will be 1 year for me and michael on july 18th, it does not feel like it has been that long. he is really a great guy! well i think thats it for now, i am still bored though!! i hope everyone is doing good and i miss all of you!

What a Year! [03 Jan 2004|04:14pm]
[ mood | blah ]

Well..... New Years was a lot of fun. This year, it was all about family for me. Me, Michael, Gina, Marcus, Michelle, Dave, Joey and Jim were all together. We went by Michelles house this year and it was a lot of fun. All my nephews and Gianna were there. As a family, we all have grown a lot closer this year. I think it was when my grandfather had his surgery and was in the hospital for like 3 months, it made us all realize how important life is. I mean me, Gina and Michelle have always been close but our family like my Aunt and all of them have grown really close again and it is really nice to know u have people in your life that care about you. This has been an extremely hard year for me. I lost a lot of things and people in my life. It was extremely difficult for me. I have learned about myself and about others this year. I have learned that honesty is always best even when people's feelings are on the line. I have learned that how many times someone tells you that they are your friend, it is not always necessarily true. I feel that i am a good friend, yes i have made some big mistakes , some that i really regret but everyone makes mistakes. I know that when push comes to shove, I have been there for all of my friends like they have been there for me. I feel that the only person that i really lost was my best friend. Steph-I cant begin to tell you how sorry that i am, I really wish things could be different. I wish you were here so that i can tell u all about the little things that go on in my life and vice versa. I know we talk online but it is not the same. I tell u all about the stupid crap that Alex does and it just reminds me that i used to be able to call u and talk for hours about nothing at all. I know a lot of things hurt you and a lot of things hurt me, not that u did but from others like what they said about me. Everyone can think i am this big slut or whore or that i even had a fuck buddy : ( whatever. i know that that was not the case at all. I am finally happy with one person and he honestly treats me better than anybody has. I am not asking for everyone to forgive me because i dont care what anybody thinks of me anymore except for stephanie...... have to go shower

enlighten me

A long time ago i wrote in here..... [14 Dec 2003|04:09pm]
Well, what to say? what to say? So much has been going on in my life but i guess i should write in here for myself. This was always the place where i could write exactly how i was feeling and i havent wrote in here in such a long time. Well, i moved in with Michael, i dont live with Gina anymore. It is reallly different for me, it really gave me a sense of independance. Um, me and Mike work a lot so we arent home a lot but when we are its cool. I get along with him so nice. I just cant believe it took me soo long to realize what i had in front of me the whole time. We have been together for 5 months so far. I have to give him a lot of credit. He really takes a lot of shit from me and i have gone through some really tough times this past year and he has been there for me. Well, i have all of my Christmas shopping done except Michael. I spent so much money this year, it is not even funny. Michelle, Dave, Bryan, Nick and Gianna came over last night for a while, we ordered pizza and we just sat around adn hung out, it was cool. Then, me and Mike went to the bar with some friends, got home at 3:00. I havent gotten drunk in a while so that was coool. Today, i slept till 12, went to Alexs basketball game and they lost : ( I hope everyone who is reading this if anyone got their Christmas cards. Well, i have to go clean a little, my apt is looking a lil dirty : ) Bye
enlighten me

just waiting..... [20 Sep 2003|11:59pm]
[ mood | anxious ]

well, it is 12 at night. what did i do so far this weekend? um...last night, i worked late finishing up things, then went straight to the hospital to visit my gramps. oh.... and i signed online last night for a while, didnt think i was going to get bombarded by Bee who thought it was necessary to call me all sorts of names like dumb, mental and to tell me that i needed help. I guess i should have expected it... But my only thing was am i really the mental one because did i instant message you or call you in the past few months....NO, thinks that answers it. I think i said everything i needed to say about anything to you and i really thank you for not talking about it right now because of my grandpa but u know what.. whatever... Today was actually a good day for me which is odd. Gina and I went to Oakbrook Mall and did some shopping, talking and eating. It was nice to laugh with her and i am starting to realize how much we have in common. I really can talk to her about anything and i love her soo much. I am just waiting for Michael now to get home, he has been in California this whole week and his plane just landed at Midway. I miss him which again is weird. Umm/... what else... my birthday this year is going to suck. Jonathan has to have another surgery on oct 1st, poor Jay : ( I am standing up to my cousins wedding in July so i really have to start losing weight : ( thats about it!
