pretty girl

Deb wrote a blog like this in September I believe and I started writing one of my own then, but forgot about it until I started writing my last blog, in which I mentioned finding this one...I hope you followed that, because I did. I also modified the rules because I am super.

My Age: In case you are saying to yourself, isn't Ali 21?, then clearly you have forgotten that September comes before November.

Song of the Week: Pretty Girl by Sugarcult. I figured since this is the title of the post it should actually be apart of the post for real. I bought this song recently because I'm getting sick of all of my music. This one also gets stuck in my head and I've decided I like it. A lot.

In the Works

So, I started working on a blog several months ago and then forgot about it and I just recently remembered that I have it but haven't posted it yet. So I will get on that soon. Because it's a good one. I think.

Hmm...thinking of any updates. Well, as far as boys go, I have no idea what I'm doing. Which always seems to be the case. I think I'm just too picky, but I don't mean to be. But if I'm honestly not attracted or interested in someone, then why should I pretend? Then we just both get hurt in the end. But how can I say I want a boyfriend and then shoo them away when they're not what I want? I'm not saying that they are flocking to me, because that is so not the case. I'm just saying in general. I don't think any of that came out the way I intended it to....I like boys and I want one for myself. That's all. Thanksgiving is this week and I'm so excited to hang with the families. both of them. very much. Like a lot. And for pie-making too. And because I don't have to work!!! that is the very best of all. I can actually be conscious during the holidays for the first time in two years. I am awesome.

I am officially done with papers for this semester! I turned my last one in on Friday. Now I just have one Italian test and then finals. So pretty much these next couple weeks are going to be very relaxing. I don't know what I'm going to do with my free time. Maybe I should study for finals.

I just wanted to say thanks to all of you for being my friend. You are all so amazing and I love you dearly. I don't know where I would be without all of your advise and help. Anyway, don't mean to go all sappy on you, but I really do mean it.

And I know you all thought I had forgotten about the song-of-the-week, but I didn't, I was just....waiting to see if anyone missed it. Which clearly no one did. But I'm starting it again because I like it and I'm pretty much just writing this blog for myself it seems.

Al-dog's Song-O-The-Week: Grand Theft Autumn by Fallout Boy. I always get this song stuck in my head. So I finally looked it up and bought it. I am very happy with my purchase. So, score for me.

New Post = ! ! !

So, I know I need to write a new blog, but I don't know what to say necessarily. Other than MY FRIENDS ARE AMAZING, and by friends I mean all of you and by amazing I mean the super duper best ever. Ok, I guess then the sentence doesn't really make sense, but you get what i'm atalking about. Thank you all so much for helping with, planning, participating in anything that was my birthday. I had so much fun and it was all because of you amazing girls! So thank you all a lot again and again. I don't know if I deserved such a fantastic time, but I sure did have one.

I'm so excited that the worst part of my semester is pretty much over! I just have one more paper to write that is due on Friday and then I am free from crazy stressful weeks until finals.

So, how do you all feel about exclamation points? I almost used one after "finals", but then I didn't because I felt it wasn't really something I would exclaim! even though I am really excited about it. And I used one in the sentence before and I didn't want to seem like an exclamation point whore (is that too strong of a word?). Sometimes I feel that when I use one I'm a 15 year old talking about how hot some boy is, or just how much she loves lip gloss or something. But I suppose they are there for my use, so I shouldn't shun them, but I think maybe they have been abused. I can't help but think of the Seinfeld episode about this exact subject. Anyway, that was a long paragraph about nothing. I mean amazing incites. You feel enlightened now don't you?

Um, I guess I could say a lot more about life and such, but I don't know if really want to at this time....whatever that means.

Here's a picture from my birthday/early Thanksgiving:

I know, I'm adorable

Late for Class

Ok, I have to leave for class in like 5 minutes. But, um, lots of stuff has been going on. I started my job on Monday and so far it has been pretty good, a little boring, but good.

I've been listening to Conference on my iPod while I walk to school and yesterday I heard the most amazing talk. I don't remember who it was or what the talk was called but it was all about Christ and how we can choose to follow him and be saved or not follow him and not be saved. Well, he used better words that me, but it was such a great talk. Maybe I'll look up who it was; all I know is that it was in the Saturday afternoon session.

Anyway, I think one of my roommates has an eating disorder and we're really worried about her but don't really know what to do.

It snowed today and it was real cold. I did not like it. But it was nice getting to work and not being sweaty.

These next few weeks are going to be crazy with research papers and tests. So I'll be at the library pretty much almost every night this week. party party. But then it's my birthday and then I don't really have any big things due until finals. yay!

Oh, dang I really need to go to class, but first. I was thinking about maybe having a birthday party for myself on either Friday or Saturday night (of my birthday). Just like some food and music and maybe games and such. I would invite a whole bunch of people, but maybe they wouldn't come. So...What do you think?
