la la lala la la la lala la la (smurfs' theme)

You know how sometimes people on your friend's list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when are they working THERE? Since when are they dating HIM/HER? since when???" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you *should* already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

Please copy my response below, erase my answers putting yours in their place then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from elaboration! One-word answers seldom help anyone out. :)

1. First Name: Katie... well technically Katelyn, but most people call me Katie... I think.... -blinkblink-

2. Age: 21 (i'm rounding up, I've only got two and a half months)

3. Location: Raxicoricofallipatorius..... no?  fine then... -sigh- Villa Park, IL.

4. Occupation: i ish a student... i ish learning stuff :D

5. Partner: John Barrowman.... no wait... that's not right.... Scott :D (for now... -makesangryface- I'll let you know Tuesday night if that's still the case)

6. Kids: Two... well technically none but sometimes my two nieces feel like they're mine... hehehehe

7. Brothers/Sisters: One older sister, Lisa.  I love her to death (in a side note have you noticed how well my family survives Torchwood... I mean there's me... Katie... Owen's fiancé... died... my sister... Lisa.... Ianto's girlfriend.... dead as well -sigh- oh well such is my life) and a twin brother -makesickyface-  needless to say we don't get along.

8. Pets: I have a kitty -hugglescherry- I love my cat, even though I'm convinced she's the devil incarnate.  Oh and I have a fish.

9. List the 3-5 biggest things going on in your life:
1. school... I just applied to the Vancouver Film School :D
B. no... 2. Getting into VFS and paying for it
3. or C. getting my license
4. or D. or that little IV roman numeral they have in footnotes. Getting a job

10. Where and for what did you go to school for?: Right now I am at COD (College of DuPage).  I am getting my associates, or at least most of it, in general education.  Then (hopefully) at the end of August '09 I will be moving up to Vancouver, British Columbia to study at the Vancouver Film School, majoring in Screenwriting for Film and Television.

11. Parents: I have them.... they're old... what more is there to want to know?

12. Who are some of your closest friends?: My closest friends... its sorta a tie between two.  I have Megan (sgteam14283) and then there's my very own shorter, gothicy-er John Barrowman who goes by the name of Nicky.  Megan and Nicky (aka, the Tosh and Jack to my Ianto) have been my best friends since I was in 7th grade... so yeah... known them a while... -sigh- hahah JK!!! I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!

one final word....


(no subject)

So, yesterday was AWESOME!  Well, the last half of yesterday was awesome.  I went to my eye appointment then my dentist appointment... I swear to god they sat me down in a cyber conversion unit and I am NEVER going back there again.  No need to upgrade me, I like my attention span just the way it is, thank you -nods- Anyway, after that Nicky and K kidnapped me and we went to take pictures... they made me look all cool-like... very eighties inspired.  Anywho... after that I hung out with Nicky until like one in the morning then I came home... and yeah it just went downhill from there.  I came home, went to bed.  My mom and dad were supposed to take me to get my license today... so much for that, by the time I woke up a) they were gone and b) the place had closed. -sigh-  Then I check my email and my admissions adviser got all my all the information I sent her.  She's just waiting on the transcripts from school.  But I also found out in the email that upon acceptance I owe $1,137.50.  I have no idea how I am going to come up with the rest of that.  UNLESS, I get the loan the offer.  The problem is, its a private loan that requires a co-signer and my mom says she doesn't want to co-sign for anymore of my student loans.  Although when I first talked to her about it, after my initial phone conference with my admissions adviser, she said she would co-sign.  Now she's saying she won't.  And I have no idea how the fuck I'm going to be able to pay for it.  It doesn't matter how much money I save between now and July 31, 2009 (when the rest of the money's due) I am never going to have $38,000.  Its just not going to happen.  With tuition and the cost of living my year in Vancouver will cost $38,000.  And there is no possible way I could ever save that much money between now and July.  So I NEED that loan, but I can't get it without a co-signer.  So I'm pretty much fucked, and wasted $200 on an application fee to a school I'm never going to be able to go to... WONDERFUL! 

On top of that... my brother's all pissed because, if by some miracle I do get to go to VFS, I probably won't be able to make it to their wedding.  I've been telling them for the past four months that I will be starting there (if I go) on August 31, 2009.  And its a one year, intensive program.  The adviser said I probably won't have time to work, let alone have the money to fly home for the weekend for a wedding. Nate and Beth have conveniently planned their wedding for September some time.  And apparently I am just supposed to drop everything so I can go.  Fuck that.  If I make it into that school, there is no way in hell I'm missing days for a wedding.  But they won't have enough money to have it in August (cause they spend all their money on shit anyway).  And the next time I'll have time off is Christmas.  A) It'll be WAY to expensive for them to have a Christmas wedding and B) I'll only have a week off then anyway.  So now Nate's all pissy cause I don't want to miss school for their wedding.  Nevermind how hard I'm trying to get into the school  Or how far away it is.  That doesn't matter.  Because its all about them, so other people's problems don't matter.  Nevermind that its at least a two day drive out there, and a two day drive back and there are only two days in a weekend.  Besides they want to have the wedding during the week anyway.  Nevermind that a plane ticket would cost way to much and since I won't be working I probably won't be able to afford a plane ticket.  That doesn't matter.  Not at all, I'm only trying to be able to do what I've wanted to since I was a sophmore in high school.

You know what.  Just fuck it all.  So I wasted $200.  Not like I'm gonna be able to go to the school anyway.  Even if, by some miracle, I do get accepted.  I was stupid for even thinking I could get in.  I've always just been average or below average anyway.  Not like I'm gonna get anywhere with it.  Certainly no one else thinks so.  No one will come right out and say it, but they always have this look on their faces like "This girl's crazy"... or some shit like that.  So you know what... Fuck it!  I'll just finish COD and do some stupid major or something.  To hell with this shit.  I'm not gonna go anywhere with it anyway.
