So...the next time you will here from me, I will probably have started the end. and my bf will be in town for 3 weeks. for every 3 months of distance, i am blessed with 3 blissful weeks.
Things I will miss...
1. 5 minute walk to class
2. Drinking 3-5 days/week
3. Waking up at 1 pm on a regular basis
5. Hagin out
6. Variety in life
Things I will like...

|Who throws shoes?
My dearest friends,
Tomorrow I will be airborne, leaving a small part of my life behind me. It has been an incredible 3 months with high highs and low lows. I have met some really incredible people that I hope I can introduce to all of you some time in the future. I have seen some incredible scenes in which my pictures may never do justice. Iceland is a great country with great people. The weather may not be so great, however, better than Chicago the past couple of days!!!
Although I do love Iceland, I cannot wait to come home to see my bestest friends in the whole world! It is going to be strange being able to see all of you all of the time. I can't wait.
Miss ya and see you TODAY!!!!!! (it's saturday my time).

Well...I secretly decided that I was done with this journaling business, and done with the whole myspace thing before it really even started.
however, it seems that you all have written some nice journal and bijou myspaced me. that was exciting! so, here i am...
My weekend was fun. i hosted my lock in on friday night. 25 kids, caffine, junk food and games. it was pretty cool. i got nyminute for the kiddies and got to hear LBC's bit. When i asked savannah when the song came on and she said it was during a chase scene, i didnte expect the whole gdmf movie to be chase scene. needless to say-the olsen twins should have stayed a cute little baby named michelle.
then saturday night-i guess i felt like i should make up for not drinking friday night. got wasted, went to keflavik and danced my ass off. played a ton of pool and hung out with some great guys. then, felt the urge to run out to the atlantic and climb on some damn rocks. can you guess what happened next? didnt do any perma damage tho.
sunday=detox. slept till 5.
oh yeah, saturday was the gay pride parade in reykjavik. i never want to leave!!! it was the coolest thing. everyone was in good spirits, children running around with rainbow flags, great entertainement, people walking around the streets with beer,. horn band playing YMCA...greeat meal at cafe paris. it just really made me feel good to see everyone getting along. then i went into a bar cause there was stones with iceland flag toungue that i had to have. wasnt for sale tho. but i ran into a friend-so it was worth it.
time to write my last paper ever. no more shcool. woohoo.

|already missing iceland
well...its official. i just missed the 3rd biggest party in the world! there is a group of tiny islands off the south shore that has this party annually. bands, 10000 people on an island that you can walk in 15 minutes, booze, sex (in public), no cops because there is no need for them, camping.......... i am definitely gonna try to make it next year!
this weekend was very fun. stayed out till 6 or 7 this morning. and the bar was still open and still jumpin'. met a nice guy and cabbed home with him cause i lost my friends in taxi/club confusion.
definitely dont know how much money i spent.
the best music i think i have ever heard is icelanders covering stuff. their accents are amazing. got to hear floyd,stones,beatles.......great time!

|time for a new update!
liz-tell me about mugwamp! that was such a tease.
i feel like savannah, at work just chillin on the net. my eyes are blurry from playing minesweeper.
a couple of friend visited me for about 3 hours and we played cards and i kicked some but. kinda wanna go ask random dude if i could play pool with him.
so, is it against the rules to blog on the weekend or does it just mean you are a super dork?
saturday. what is everyone doing tonight???
Plan on hanigning out with me on the 15th. its a saturday. i should be home round 9ish. if you are working the next day-take off. if you plan on having any sudden illnesses-either contract them now or fight them off till the 20th. with that said...i cant wait to see you guys.

|we are not running mofo
remember drinking under age in downtown naperville? that was so much more fun than doing it legally. instead of hanging out in CROWDED smoky bars with people that are either too rich, too pretty, too stuck up or too highschool enemy like-we would chill by the river, walk around, avoid drug sniffing dogs, pee in barned&noble or the steak house and enjoy eachothers company. i wonder if pot would be less fun if it was legalized.
a bunch of people had soco a couple of weekends ago and were trying make me drink it. i refused, pulling my 'i have a problem' card and they thought it was rather humorous. i try to justify drinking other hard liquors just as long as it is not soco, but really it is same problem/different drug. i think i may have retired the light bicardi stage of my life and moved on to dark. uh oh, what do they say about brown liquors?
wow, i just realized that this email is completely about alcohol. man! one really great thing about iceland is that i dont really drink that much at all. i would describe my state as 'sitting on the wagon with my feet dangling off' and occasionally the wagon hits a rock and i fly off, but that is pretty rare.
more about the booze! i cant stop. better post this shyiit before my friends decide i need an intervention. did you guys see the chapel show where a group of people had an intervention for him and his crack habit. that was funny.
the amazon has alot of birds. Current Mood: confused

|"Behind every good man is a women rolling her eyes"
day 3 of rain/wind warning crappy weather in Iceland. Hopefully it will blow over this weekend. I will be laying low this weekend, hopefully do something amazing next weekend then hop on the plane bound for the united states of america the following weekend. i couldnt even say "three monthes" faster than it passed. i feel like i am in an unreal place that functions on its own unreal time. it will be so sad to say goodbye to this chapter of my life.
then onto a whole bunch of craziness. i am nervous to visit mark. seems like i barely even know the kid anymore. he makes comments like i'm afraid we're drifting-which freaks me out. but the we actually talk and it seems normal. i'm also afraid that my endurance has gone to shit because i havent been able to workout or even walk around for a while. hiking is going to kick my ass.
to add to those uneasy feelings, what the hell am i gonna do after that? dad suggested cod yesterday. i guess i could take some spanish classes or something. grad school? job? internship? live at home? move far away? health insurance? god, i dont feel ready to make any kind of decision. i like being young and being able to go in a which direction but i fear making a wrong choice. dont really wanna live a home but have no urge to get an apt in the naperville area.
i wish i could just travel. spend my life seeing new landscapes, scaling rocks, meeting interesting people, learning about different cultures.
if anyone out there has any suggestions of what i should do with my life, please let me know. i already ruled out running away to join a freak show and running in the upcomming elections. Current Mood: contemplative

Maybe 1 of the worst things about being diabled is having other peopple pick up your food for you, and no matter how hard you stess DIET coke, without fail you are presented with liquid sugar aka coke. bluck!
i sincerely enjoyed reading the blogs today. you guys are quite funny. i like crushes twice removed as well as ass cards/puppets.
i plan on sending pictures of my freshly opened wound. dont know if i was quite ready for the stitch removal. this scar will truely be monumental.
thats all i have to say about that.
much love to my peeps.
btw, how is the melting pot? Current Mood: anxious

Well, the stitches are out and there is definitely an open slit in my foot. i guess it is okay tho. must tape in daily now. how fun. the doctor said "did you lose any keys in there" and "she (women who gave me stitches) must have gotten carple tunnel", nothing better that morbid doctor humour. i also love the attention i draw when i am in there. passerbyers stop to make sure i know that it is a nasty cut. its all good. Current Mood: indescribable

|happy birthday mark
welp, i started writing a great message yesterday but my computer wouldnt have it. then i gave up.
now i am at work and terribly bored. stitches come out tomorrow and i cant friggin wait. i hate having people do shit for me.
last night was quite fun. after sleeping the entire weekend, not exaggerating, i was quite restless. the guys on my floor were supposed to fly out yesterday but they had to order a new engine so they were game to party. and that we did. its just like living in a dorm but with boys were who are all in their 30s. played some cards, enjoyed nice conversation and drank. slept in, missed my ride and had to have someone come and pick me up. slackartist.
procrastination is a big problem for me. that is my greatest weakness. that and wendys.
missing stateside, loving iceland. the government has a lot of money.

|a glorious day in iceland
well, today was pretty great. i spent the whole day catching up with my friend sonnie and now i am going to watch a movie with a bunch of strangers.
went to the doc cause everyone was freaking me out. doc said everything was good and it was healing nicely. made an apt to get my stitches out on tuesday and they said they would take my crutched from me then too. the human body (especially mine!) is such an amazing thing. i cant believe it can bond together so quickly.
i am sad that my friends are sad. just know that there are alot of people who care about you!!!!!!! I love you all-you know who you are, and when i get back i will give you gigantic hugs.
bye for now.

|this is why i hate this shit!
i'm all into writting my journal and...damn computer boots me off. god. self diagnosed ADD.
as i was saying...dont even wannan write it again. maybe tomorrow.
Liz-you have a great memory. reading your last journal was like being in highschool/jc all over again. we had such great times. the long term damage accumulated then was well worth it. i must try to stay on the wagon for awhile so i dont re-open my foot wound.
tomorrow, a couple friends and i are gong to rent a car and head down to reykjavik to hang with the peeps that helped me in my time of need. party in iceland with people from france, quebec, spain, serbian.... it sucks that i hurt my foot but i am so thankful to have met such amazing kind people. the guy from quebec actually packed up camp in the middle of the night to come and help me. then he emailed me and said such kind words.
i cant wait to come home and see all of you. it will be hard though, because i have made some really great friends here. i am so lucky to have you all in my life. damn-i am really re-evaluating life. i must have seen the light when i was submerged in the frigid water beneath the fall, then returned to life, pulled myself out of the water and stuck my gdmf thumb in my gdmf foot! grusome shit i tell ya!
so, where is that music/mood option? oh, there it is. why didnt anybody ever pick bouncy? i always feel bouncy. Current Mood: bouncy
