Stacy Was Here :
Back at the Beginning

Friday, January 30, 2004


* my classes are going well... here is my schedule:
Photography (MW 8-11)
US History: 1877 to present (MWF 12-1)
American Lit: Writing CA (TTH 9:30-11)
Post-Colonial Lit (TTH 11-12:30)
and individual weight training whenever the hell I get unlazy enough to go... but to be fair, I am in a lot of pain right now, so hopefully in a few days or so.

* I'm a bit less depressed about being here, now that classes are going well and my roommates are being really wonderful, and Chris is being great and doing really sweet things for me so that I can't help but smile. I still miss lots of people in lots of places, but my classes are good and I'm really trying to be more social this semester so that I don't alienate myself again. My photo professor is crazy, but he's absolutely brilliant and arguably one of the most inspiring teachers I have ever had. It's going to be a great class.

* I still don't know whether to graduate this May or next. I would seriously like some more opinions on this, but I also need to find out if I can get the cords anyway, so that my mom can cry and take lots of pictures and stuff. If I can get those I think I'll definitely do it this May.

* At costco the other day, I found a gigantic stuffed duck. It is a costco sized version of Mr. Quackers. So I bought her, and her name is Big Mamma Quackers. She has become like another pillow because she is so big and soft and squishy. Yay for big (and small) yellow duckies.

Not much else going on, really... life plods along slowly, and there are 43 days left until Spring Break.

my dilema

so I have a bit of an issue to work out.... the question is, should I walk in the graduation ceremony this may (04) or next may (05.) here are the pros and cons for each possibility...

May 04':
* I will get to graduate with a majority of my friends here
* I will not have to come back 6 months after being done and having moved on with my life
* I will be able to introduce some of said graduating friends to some of my other friends and parts of my family that they have heard a lot about
* I will not be done, and will therefor be lacking overall in that sense of done-ness that one would associate with graduation
* I will have "Magna cum Laude" on my degree, but won't get to wear the fancy cord thingies or have it announced during the ceremony

* I will get to graduate with honors, all announced and stuff, which will make my mom real happy
* I will be done, completely, with nothing hanging over my head.
* most of my good friends won't be around anymore
* I'll have to come all the way back up here 6 months afer I'm done, plus making the arrangements will be more of a pain in the ass since I won't already be here
* the unknown - who knows what I will be doing in my life at that point... what if something prevents me from going through the ceremony?

I'm sure there are more, and I welcome input on this...

I simply love you more than life itself...

I heard this
this song in the car and it made me think of you...

dear fuzzy,

when I woke up this morning, I lay in bed next to you and watched you sleep for over an hour. every time I have to leave, it breaks my heart in pieces to know that I have to be apart from you for even a day. I used to think it might get easier with time, but it's only getting worse, because the more time I spend with you at home, the more it feels like home to me, and the more I realize that you're the only person I will ever love this way. and every time I leave, you try and comfort me and remind me that we've made it for much longer time frames over much longer differences, and I know it's true, but it's also true that the best days I've ever had have been the ones that involved me waking up next to you like I did this morning. I miss you, and so does Mr. Quackers.


p.s. to everyone... I'm back at school, sort of in one piece. someone come visit me, dammit.

so Chris and I got anual passes to Disneyland. might seem a bit silly since I'm usually 12 hours north of the park, but I'll for sure be going at least once more this trip, which is a total of 2, at the bare minimum... plus spring break, all of summer, etc etc etc.... it'll be worth it in the long run, especially when we're laying around going "I'm bored... there's nothing to do..." we would have gone even more this week except that we're both sick and worn out and stuff. but tomorrow is Amie's 12th birthday and so we're going for all day even. so what if I'm a big kid and all that, I love going to disneyland and hanging out and just having a good time.

things at home are still nice and relaxed.... I've been reading a lot, which is a nice return to where I was before being an English major ruined me. Read DaVinci Code, which was fantastic and Michelle, you totally need to read it, I think you'd really like it.

and now I have like less than ten days until I have to go back to school... normally at this point I'd be sick of being home and ready to head back, but this time things are different and I really don't want to go. one more year to go, one more year and I'll be done and I can come home to stay... one more year....

so, in response to a little prodding, here is a post... I promise nothing spectacular.

things here at home are fabulous... my brothers were here for a week and we had a good time, new years was unremarkable but it was nice none the less, especially since it was the first with fuzzy and I together. I feel like we're closer than ever now, which is a really good feeling.

I really don't want to go to school, as much as I know I have to (it's my last year, for chrissakes)... It's been so nice being home this time, and it makes me sad to think I have to leave again soon.

There's not much to say, really... haven't done too much exciting stuff other than hang out with my family and friends, but I'm comfortable here in a way I haven't ever been before. My sister is becoming a teenager, and it's a bit frightening, but I suppose it's always only been a matter of time, right? but all in all we're okay, and life is good.

Oh, and I got Pirates of the Carribean. I love it.
