Ryan and I bought the house and are now living in Clarkston. I just got the cutest black lab puppy on the face of the planet and named her MJ (after Mary Jane Watson, my favorite comic book character ever). We are having an interesting time keeping up with everything that's going on in our hectic lives but for the most part it's fun. Wish me luck for finals week. I am going to chill with a couple of fun art classes next semester so maybe I'll have more time for life.... Current Mood: yet exhausted

Ahh this week is insane! There are so many assignments due, we are having agravating dress rehersals every day this week, I work every day I'm not in school and Ryans friend is staying at our apartment for the next week (I don't mind but I need MY space and ME time!) Friday and Saturday we are doing the show and I am so scared that it's not going to go just right. Everything else is great though ;) I hope things turn out wonderfully but ya never can tell. I might be buying a house in Clarkston. It was my uncles place that my mom and him totally cleaned up. Hardwood floors, basement, big backyard, my mom and I are talking about how to make it happen, what it's going to cost...ect. Right now I am paying about the same amount for the tiny apt. I am staying in whereas I could own property and eventually make some money off it when I graduate from college. Current Mood: busy

Hi all. For some reason this didn't update the last time so here I am again. I am sitting in the library early in the morning, I've kind of forgotten how much I enjoy fall mornings here in Lewiston. The strong desire to crawl back into your warm snuggly bed because even the carpet is icy, the smell of a light frost, I love it!
Ryan and I have pushed our wedding date forward so I'll be able to have the spring wedding I want, that and the fact that we're both incredibly busy. Neither him nor his family is too thrilled but it's my day too. We are both main characters in a play that one of our friends is directing, Bell Book and Candle, I am going to school full time and wil be working 2 jobs in a couple of weeks. Ryan is working full time and it's getting to be the busy season and he might be getting a job at Game Crazy. We barely can find time for each other. Luckily I still manage to get a lot of reading in though. I just started a book by Christopher Moore, Lamb. It's the life of Christ from the perspective of Christs childhood friend, Biff.... pretty funny stuff. Well I must run off to class but I wish everyone well. Goodluck Eva and Tracks....

|Killing a House
I've had a bit more time off work lately so I guess internet is good? Yesterday my Mom, Andy, Matt and myself started tearing apart the extremely old and dumpy house we bought. We're going to turn it into my Mom's dream house. I got to let loose of any built up anger with a gigantic sledge hammer and a crowbar. We are tearing out most of the walls and redoing everything. I got put in charge of insulation when the time comes. I never knew how much fun it is to do this kind of stuff. My back and shoulders are killing me today but I LOVE IT! (I did soak in a hot bath tub for an hour after ODing on muscle relaxers granted)
Today was a good Sunday. Ryan came to church with me and Wendy which was cool even though he was so tired from work he slept through most of it :) Current Mood: accomplished

It's been forever since I've even been online. I guess I just like being busy and sleeping *shrug*. Wow so much has happened in past few weeks I don't really know where to begin. Umm, I guess it started with my good friend Rachel and Ella Enchanted (one of the cutest, corniest movies ever). We got together and hung out, then she told me she was going down to Rexberg to take some summer classes at BYU Idaho. So I promised her that I would see here before she left at church on Sunday. A couple of days after that, Wendy's Mom (my visiting teacher) got in touch with me and anyhow Wendy and I ended up going to the student branch together. We skipped the last half and just went to Brackenbury square where we drank Mtn. Dew and talked about everything that had/ was going on in our lives during the past 8 months. We are both working through a lot of our individual struggles and are getting back in the Church together. Some might say that I am altogether too forgiving, I say that's my best feature. I would have missed out on a lot of good times and friendships if I condemned everyone who trespassed against me. Wendy has been my sister since day one and I was never mad enough at her to hate her. She will always be my sister.
I've started taking a scuba diving class and plan on being in the waters by the end of July. Guitar lessons are coming along great when I can find the time to practice, and work couldn't be better. I am considering moving in with my Grandmother for the summer to help out... not sure yet though...
I am dating a really cool guy named Jim Olsen. Apparently I am now married to him because I have a rubber band ring and a paper towel marrige license. Unfortunetly he is leaving for the Air Force in a little over a month, but we're planning on keeping in contact. He is a preacher's son and one of the most virtuous guys I have ever met. We have so much fun together.
My goals and aspirations have changed drastically within the course of a couple of months. I am getting back to being content with myself as a human being. I have apologies to make to a number of people... probably the most obvious to me being Crystal and Teddy. I don't know if you'll ever read this but since we never talk, someone pass the messege on, I am really sorry for putting you in the middle of my "quest" in figuring out who I am. I misled you both in different ways. I can't say that I look back now on our time together with good thoughts and happy feelings but I know you are both amazing people. I don't know if you hate me but I feel that I needed to set things right. I need to get ready for work now so good luck to everyone.

|Tribute to Friends
I am depressed over the loss of my favorite television show, Friends. I didn't even get to see the final episode until about half an hour ago and the radio anouncer almost ruined it for me early this morning. Seriously, my alarm clock is a radio/fog horn annoying beeper alarm and the only thing that made me jump up and practically throw the darn thing across the room was the stupid radio dude almost gave away the entire ending before I Jaimee Jo, had a chance to see it! Anyhow Zach and Sarah are sweethearts and recorded it for me along with exclusive cast interviews. I cried for maybe the 2nd time in 2 years. Don't mistake me for a psycho freak with nothing better in her life, I have friends of my own, I work hard in every way I know of, but 'Friends' has always been there for me when I needed a laugh and my own Jaimee time. I will miss it dearly. Current Mood: okay
|Saturday, April 24th, 2004|
A lot has been going on lately, mostly me working my butt off saving money for college and diving classes I want to take this summer. I enjoy working at the Orchards much more than downtown. It's closer to home and Zach's put a lot more responsiblity and trust in me as I know his routine and style better than anyone. Not to mention I have his inventory spread-sheets down pat and am always trying to think of new ways to improve the system. I also get to work with the film a lot more which is always tons of fun, building the movies, breaking them down ya know cool stuff. Plus I get eyebrow raises from guys when I say I know how to work on and fix all the projection booth machinery. Ehh, it's a cool college job and I get a shiny nametag.
I bought a totally awesome guitar (a style that I've always loved and wanted) from Cody and he's giving me free lessons so it'll be time to call Wendy and get our band started in a couple of months *amused grin*. I already know several chords and understand music so I figure it'll just take a lot of practicing. Life is going good and I love NPR JAZZ!! Go cruisin' the loop the way it was intended, listening to smooth Jazz baby oh yeah. Well I gotta go work out... I plan on trying a new swimming technique, swimming with your clothes on. I've done it once before and it really builds endurance. I get a few weird looks from people though, eh what else is new. *L*

Saturday was so much fun. I loved it!! Jeff, Marika, Shandi, Steve (Jeffs' Dad) and I did the cow thing and had a blast. I forgot how much I love working with animals, despite the fact that I had never worked with cows before and they really stink. It was still fun. I met the Grandparents and more family and they were all really super sweet. Paul says it's hard for him to imagine me giving cows shots, branding them and locking them into the single gate... but I say it's the most fun I've had in exactly 2 years. Jeff's coming down next weekend for a Subway/MarioKart/TonyHawk/movie night. oh and Saturday my Dad is taking me and Sherry up the 7 devils hopefully to go hiking and have a snowball fight. In the meantime I am sick with a cold but am still alive. Current Mood: nauseated

|Out of TOWN!!!!
Yah!!!! Tomorrow I am getting up at 5am to go to Jeffs house. Maurika (Jeff's sister), Shandi Jeff and I are all going over to Dayton to hang out on his Grandpas farm! We're gonna be roundin' up cattle, giving them shots, castorizing and such. I get to wear big rubber boots, tight jeans and Jeff promised me he would ride a cow!! I am almost done reading "The Shining", the 7th season of Friends rocks and I don't see how life could get better. *L* catch yall later!!!
I just got Mario Cart Racing for my GameCube!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Current Mood: optimistic

Well Friday is my moving in day! I have a ton of friends who are planning on helping and then we're talking about a sleepover party!!! I hope everything will go as planned with work and my mom and stuff. Stephen King is a wonderful author and fiestaware rocks! My Mom got me back into rollerblading last weekend. I gave her my old ones to practice with and bought a new pair of agressive blades with grinding pads! I still remember all my moves! Just gotta go to the skate park one of these days and work on grinding the handrails *big mischievious grin*. I hope I don't kill myself. Well life is getting peachier and Jeff better get down here this weekend! Oh! Wendy and I hung out yesterday and changed my guitar strings together. I am letting her borrow it as she wants to be a rockstar *LOL*. She's changed a lot and has turned into quite a cool chick. I didn't realize how much I missed our friendship and having her around to make me laugh like no one else. Well, my best regards to everyone. Keep in touch. Phone's still the same.
I almost forgot to add my imput about Steve. Amazingly enough he thinks everyone here loves him. All he does for me is bring up bad memories. Ummm, yeah as a heads up to Crystal even though he probably wouldn't mind sex, he has a girlfriend in Vegas who is apparently perfect. I say ignore him and get over it like me. Current Mood: happy

I move into my new place the 9th of April. YAH!! Next fall I plan on heading back to college to major in Psychology with maybe a minor in English. I saw the coolest movie ever!! Gothica. If you haven't seen it, then I command unto you that you do. Hali Berrys character has the job that I want. Psychiatrist in a mental institiution for the criminally insane. How wonderful is that!! Yes I am strange, I want to work in a mental institution and write a book that could probably end up making me a patient in one. Can't wait until this summer when Kat and Jeff come back into town. Yah for bikinis, boats, swimming (my swimmer's body) and my suntan!!! My Mom and I are planning our Mexico trip celebration for next year already! Divorce will be final and our house will be sold. Life is peachy like strawberries. ;) Current Mood: excited

Well, in response to Evangelinas' Saturday entry, I am a different person on the inside because I refuse to accept myself as clinically depressed. I put on a happy face and pretend to care about all the stupid things everyone else thinks are big deals. Yeah I am hard to read because I can't even define my own emotions half the time as they fluctuate on a minute basis.
One thing that has always stood solid is that I care about my friends and I wish everyone I know the best that life can offer. I am quick to forgive but that doesn't mean trust is regained in the same instant. I made a promise to myself that I would never make the same mistakes my Mom made, that I would learn from them. As hard as it is at times, I must always be true to what I feel is right. We should all be true to our own beliefs and stick with them. That is one thing I've learned from this whole ordeal.
I've been moping around for the past couple of days, sleeping quite a bit and wishing my antidepressant would kick in. Luckily I have great friends who take me out and make me laugh. Today I was online and met up with Jeff Pitman. We ended up getting together and going to Secret Window staring Johnny Depp. It really got me thinking(very good Stephen King psychological thriller). Then we went to dinner at Sharis. It was fun. It was good to be around someone as weird as me and who made me laugh my butt off over the stupidest random crap. Well I am tired and must get rested up for work work work. Current Mood: calm

|The Art of Happiness
The Art of Happiness is an awesome book dealing with the Dalai Lamas' views, thoughts and beliefs on compassion, suffering, anger and hatred, spiritual values, marriage and many other delicately intertwined subjects. I would recommend this book to anyone just for a fun read if you enjoy philosopy/psych stuff. YAH for a Reading Rainbow moment!!!!
Yesterday was a lot of fun. Crystal and I went to one gigantic mall (at least compared to L-towns' lil itty bitty thing) They had a Spencers and a Hot Topic, wheee fun! We bought some manga, hemitite rings at this awesome import store (kind of like Around the World only way better) and some other stuff that I can't think of at this moment.... oh yeah! we found a really cool Breakfast Club poster.
Anyway everything is pretty relaxing, the only down side is I've had this horrible sore throat since the first day we got here. As one more random insert, last night I had a dream that I got fired from both my jobs for not showing up to work, I wonder if that means anything.... Current Mood: geeky

¿alright maybe it's just the beginning? ANYhow, life is good vacation is fun, and Crystal's cousin Kaitlin is very VERY stinky. THE END Current Mood: content
