11:08 am - satellite of love...
So the whole 21st birthday thing has been awesome. I've already gotten to go out a few times and will be going out again soon, this time to a lesbian dance night called booty. The big problem is that Rachel and I are pretty much broke. Which really sucks because I have a bunch of days off this week and I can't afford to take advantage of them. I really want to try out this place crush, it's apparently somewhat queer or at least queer owned and on Wednesday nights they have tarot readings and silly things like that. The ovulators are also playing in town on Thursday when I'm supposed to be going to booty, I haven't seen them play in so long.

A big problem I'm running into is that Rachel, Linda and I are moving to Eugene soon and at this point I have no idea if there's a single queer bar there. I thought I used to hear about some but neighbors is the only one I was positive was a queer bar and it closed down. The indigo district looks awesome online but doesn't say anything about being queer, same with Lucky's. If anyone knows of some let me know. It's not a huge deal to me if there aren't but it is to Linda. She doesn't already have friends in Eugene like me an Rachel do. And even I would be pretty bummed out if there wasn't because I really like that atmosphere and sense of community when I go out.

Anyways, not sure if I posted this yet but we're moving down around June 1st. I will be planning a going away party at some point up here and then probably a house warming (or house trashing) party once we get down there. Pretty much just cause I like party's.

6:53 pm - My thighs have been involved in many accidents...
I am now 21 years old. Tonight we're all going out to the E room for a crazy night of drinking and lesbian debauchery. I'm all dolled up and super excited. So I'm definitely moving back to Eugene.
It looks like some time in June at this point but we're not positive. The last couple days have been really great I think I've finally kicked my recent moody anxiety/depression thingy. Which is good, because I want to be perky and confident on my 21st birthday. Anyways, guess it's just a mini birthday update.

9:15 am - I love you I do...
things are really stressful and really crazy right now. It looks like we're moving to Eugene for sure at this point, but I honestly have no idea what's gonna happen. This is one of those times, probably more than others that I realize how badly I need someone to unload on up here. Stuck in Beaverton without a car is not a fun place to be. My birthday is Wednesday and we've got a crazy week of drinking planned but at the same time I'm just not sure I can even do it. I'm trying to be excited but with everything that's been going on and how I've been feeling, being stuck in a crowded bar with everyone wasted sounds more scary than fun.

9:14 am - To the left to the left, everything you own in the box to the left...
So this could fall through, northing's set in stone yet. But it looks like I might be moving back to Eugene soon. Rachel and I have been wanting that for awhile, Tori adors mom and Jeff and it would be such a nice place to settle down. We brought it up to Linda and she was on board. It's strange that I moved up here to be with Rachel and become part of her family and now I'm bringing them all back with me.

The weird part is that Rachel and I have been looking into buying a house lately and we might end up co-purchasing the house on Valhalla from my mom.

Anyway, lots of changes and craziness going on right now but I'll be giving updates.

8:05 am - lay lady lay...
So Tori got a stomach thing this week and stayed home with Rachel one day watching the Indiana Jones movies for the first time. At the part where the bridge breaks and a bunch of guys fall into the river full of crocadiles, apparently Tori shouts...

"HA HA, those crocodiles are all like, thanks for dinner!"

I so don't want to go to work right now, I wish work was more like school, skippable.

3:08 pm - He buzzes like a fridge...
Hellooooo World!

my internet has been down and I just recently got my laptop to stop crashing so I am now able to access my internet at coffee shops and other little spots in town. I don't have time to make super long update right now but I will say that things are great. I have the best job I could have hoped for, I've been able to connect with friends a lot lately, and things are great between me and Rachel.
Tori just turned five and with the new age she has transformed into a maniac. My mom and Jeff came up for her birthday and were able to finally meet my Beaverton family which felt really good. She also used some timeshares to get me and Rachel a condo for our anniversary which should be very romantic.

Well I should be getting home cause Rachel's gonna be waking up soon I'm sure. Hopefully I will be on-line more often to chat and update so i can feel somewhat in the loop.

3:24 pm - When I say you sucked my brain out...
So apparently my last update about how I was going to start updating all the time was bull shit. But It's been a crazy summer and I'm updating now. Frisky is still doing really well which is amazing considering the vet thought he would be gone weeks ago. He's very happy and cuddly and besides making messes all over the carpet he seems fairly healthy. I've decided to take a break from school and look for work, my financial aid work got a little overwhelming and rather than worry about getting forms from dad or declaring myself independent I thought I would take this opportunity to gather my thoughts and regroup. I've been dreading the end of my two year community college experience because It meant I had to stop stalling and make a decision. The financial situation with me and Rachel is getting hard and my mom has been nervous about my savings account diminishing. So to solve all of my problems at once comes the magic solution of taking a break. I can contribute more to the household income, fill my savings back up and have some time to figure out what the hell I want to do with my life. So that's what's goin on with me.

I've also started a new art project recently which I would love to post pictures of but I am pathetic and don't know how. I've been decoupaging/painting cigarette boxes and I'm really excited about the four I finished. It sounds kinda random but I needed a change to get inspired. Maybe someday I will sit down with my camera and figure out the pictures to computer thing but I wouldn't hold your breath. I might take them down to Eugene with me this weekend to show people.

Which reminds me, I'm coming down on Saturday and staying until sometime monday. I know I rarely get to see anyone for more then 10 minutes when I visit but this will be a longer visit and I'm coming down for the sole purpose of hanging out. I made sure that Amanda and Ashley would have lots of time for me already but I would love to catch up with everyone else too. So call me up or email me or something and we will make plans to hook up.

12:51 pm - Blue moon, you saw me standing alone...
So, it appears that the longer I put off writing in this thing the harder it becomes to think of anything worth writing, which is why I haven't posted in months.

Things are good right now, I'm taking the summer off from working or going to school which has been awesome so far. We have big plans for beach trips, camping trips, and hopefully some travel.

Last weekend we took Tori (Rachel's daughter) to the country fair and it was such a blast. I always enjoy that festival but seeing a four year old enjoy it made it twice as good. She generally has a pretty short attention span but she was excited the entire time we were there. I got a henna tattoo on my hand and convinced Tori to get one too, and I bought a knit halter that I wore for most of the day (very brave for me).

I also went to LA with Rachel for a busness thing of hers the week before that. I had always envisioned LA being busy and smelly and stressful but I was pleasantly surprised. I certainly can't say that it wasn't busy, smelly, and stressful but at the same time it was charming. We visited my friend Leanna who has a loft in downtown LA and she gave us a walking tour of all the architecture, hip cafes, and took us to THE BEST MEXICAN RESTAURANT EVER. We were only there for a few days, most of which we were busy with Rachel's work stuff but I actually want to make a trip back there now and see the galleries and the areas of the city that I missed.

I'm pretty sure those are the only major things I've done thus far in the summer. Hopefully now that I've made a start I can fall back into the Lj addiction. I miss everyone in Eugene and would love to hear from all of you!
and on that note...

Where are you Amanda? I miss you!

I'm living with Rachel now and my room is all decorated. I'm horribly sick but incredibly happy.

on another note...

Where are you blake??? Your phone has been off and I'm taking up the last of my things on sunday but have no clue what to do with the orange cat still living in my house. No hard feelings or anything, just a bit flustered about what to do with it. Please call me.

7:46 pm - Don't bother me when I'm watching planet of the apes on tv...
The farewell party was a blast. It was great to see so many of my friends at once, especially those I hadn't hung out with in awhile. Besides the house getting a bit trashed it was a wonderful way to say goodbye. I have two finals tomorrow and a dentist appointment wednesday morning. After that I'm packing up my things and hopefully moving on thursday. So if anyone wants to come by and keep me company or pitch in with the packing feel free to pop by anytime on wednesday. If not then I hope all of you will visit me lots up here in P-Town.

I got all registered for my classes at PCC today which feels relieving. I'm taking western civ, women writers, painting, and an artist skills class. So besides some anxiety about getting the house clean and movable, things are working out pretty smoothly thus far.

4:43 pm - The way that light attaches to a girl...
Important Announcement!

I'm moving up to Portland next week and want a chance to say goodbye to everyone. I've called a few people but I'm crazy busy and don't have time to track everyone down. It's this Saturday around 7:00 at my house (call me if you need directions or comment if you don't have my number). It wont be anything fancy, just an opportunity to say farewell to everyone at once and have a good time. So if I haven't called you, I still would love for you to come, I just didn't have time to talk to everyone personally. Feel free to bring anyone since this will be my last chance to see most of you.

So anyways, if you're coming it would be cool to know and if you're not you suck and should call me so I can still say goodbye.

4:57 pm - Self preservation is a full time occupation...
I had a pretty great valentines day, I spent the day handing out condoms and lube along with various safe sex informational materials for the QSA at lane. Then I went out with Rachel for over-priced italian food in my swanky red dress. She loved her spongebob balloon and stuffed animal, and I received a book of poems by Allen Ginsberg who is the shit. Then there were some good times drinking wine and beer with Amanda while watching the L word.

And it snowed briefly, which was just awesome.

8:29 am - If you won't give it to me, at least give me a better view...
I haven't posted anything in awhile but things have been fairly eventful lately so I should go ahead and get caught up.

First of all I cut my hair, it's kind of a shaggy spiky faux hawk thing but I'm really happy with it. I'm also moving to Portland over spring break and moving in with Rachel. I was planning on doing it over the summer but the way things have been going it makes sense to just make that jump as soon as possible. And the last major thing is that I came out to my father yesterday. He gave me a very long explanation of why god is apparently unhappy with me(funny how god always speaks through him) and how this is all satan's influence on me. To make a long story short I'm essentially disowned until I want to discuss my evil ways and their biblical implications with him. Which will never fucking happen. So the epic battle between me and my father has finally come to some sort of conclusion. And as much as I'm sure I should feel hurt or something, I mainly just feel proud of myself, and relieved to have all the bullshit between us out in the open and done with.

I have a giant midterm today that will probably not turn out well at all, with everything else that's been going on I just haven't had time to study at all. But for some reason I just could care less, everything seems like it's falling into place for me, and whether or not I pass a couple classes seems pretty insignificant when I look at the big picture.

So lots of changes in the life of Jessica these days. And everyone should make sure to visit/call/hang with me as much as possible in the next month and a half before I leave!

6:39 pm - I've got soul but I'm not a soldier...
First day could have gone better but was relatively good. The western civ class I was taking switched rooms and when I reached the room it had been moved to realized that it was a british lit class(similar to my embarrassing spring term incident). The whole thing was way too confusing for me to handle so I dropped the class and added general psychology to my tuesday/thursday morning schedule which actually worked out really well. I have to be at the school on those days by like 8:30 but I get out by 1, and I don't have to show up for my painting class on mondays and wednesdays until noon which is something my schedule has never permitted. And since I'm not taking western civ I have no classes on fridays which will make my attempts to maintain a life in Eugene and a life in Portland a little easier.

I'm pretty excited for this term, I really like the selection of classes I have and I feel like I won't be nearly as stressed out and overworked as last term, hopefully things will go well with the QSA again. As much as it's kind of nice to get back into the swing if things I'm feeling pretty disoriented. I really got attached to my routine over break and I suddenly have all this anxiety about going back to school and not spending my days traveling between Eugene and Portland. It's not a bad thing, I guess I just don't know what to do with myself now.

5:35 pm - The only thing you can rely on, is that you can't rely on anything...
So Raffi is getting put to sleep today, actually given the time I think it's probably already happened. I'm not sure why it upset me so much considering I haven't even lived in the same house as him for a couple of years now. I think it's just one of those things that gets tangled up with childhood memories and suddenly cause me to get over-emotional.

And as for New Years eve I officially get the award for least cool college student because I spent it hanging out with my girlfriend and a 4 year old. But I have to say it was delightful. I'm not sure if it's such a good sign that I enjoy the company of a 4 year old more than the average college party.

And my New years resolution for 2006:

drumroll please,

Drink like a fish and curse like a sailor

it's gonna take some hard work but I think I can pull this one off.

10:18 am - Days before you came, it always seemed enticing to be naked and profane, there is no denying...
So christmas was...I don't even know...but at least it's over.

Nice christmas moments have included: kick as presents were given and received, mom made a quiche for my new vegetarianism, hanging out with ash and amanda throughout the past two days, and the best conversation I have EVER had with my mother.

Actually, after writing down the good stuff, I'm feeling a little bit better about christmas.

And for Kari- I saw your post so I know you are in town, I'm not sure if you are moved in yet or what but we must hang out and have some sweet life/the L word bonding action. I'll be in portland for the next couple days but you should call me anyway so I can hear about how your trip went!
