And the roomate is… (Version II)

Posted in Blog News, Kill Jill, Personal, Residence X, Roommate on July 15, 2009 by Jill

3263025568_ee81dd924bI’ve been assigned to Roomie’s old room (which is a bit bigger) and I’ve decided to take it. Although, I think it’ll be weird staying in her old room… Weird… Also, Canning will be living next door so there will only be a wall between his kitchen and my bedroom. (Oy.)

Her name is Lauren. Today I found out that my future roommate is a first-year Culinary student (just like Roomie was), from a large city (just like Roomie was) and… more importantly… is the R.A. for our floor.


Not that I binge drink, do drugs or am violent… but I’m not sure how I feel about the notion of people knocking on our door all the time. Ugh. I’ll just let her get it. And if she’s not home… well, my door won’t be answered. OOH, WE CAN MAKE UP A SECRET KNOCK OR SOMETHING- FUN!!

(Even I’m not sure if that was sarcasm or not… Hmm…)

Also, I’m not sure if I can just quit calling my former roommate Roomie. I’m the only one who calls her that and it just became a habit. So, just so you guys don’t get confused, Roomie is still “the girl I lived with last year but is now living in an apartment”. Lauren is my current roommate. Get it?

So, I’ve been super busy and I still haven’t been updating regularly. Damn. But I got a new mp3 player, it’s wickedly bad-ass. I’m excited to try it out.

Anyway. Ryan Seacrest out. Or whatever.

Summer Goals: Revisited

Posted in Blog News, Kill Jill, Personal, Work on June 12, 2009 by Jill

On May 2nd, I made a post titled Summer Goals, Yo. and listed all the things I plan to do this summer. May went by pretty quickly and we’re almost halfway through June (Sheesh, y’all!) so I thought I would revamp my goals list.

I will:

  1. Work on, finish and continue to regularly update my music website project thingy. Finish music website on or by July 1st.
  2. Study for and acquire my beginner’s drivers license [edit] before August 1 [/edit].
  3. Practice driving as much as I can.
  4. Not f*** up too much at my part-time job at the convenience store. Also, I will not buy a chocolate bar every day while working at the store… even though I work right in front of a wall of them and regularly find myself staring at them whenever the store is empty. *sigh* I seem to be doing much better at work this summer. Or, at least, I think so.
  5. Spend less time on Facebook, more time reading.
  6. Finish reading at least three two books.
  7. Work on my comedy novel [edit] and comedy fiction novel [/edit].
  8. Not ignore my numerous projects for The Sims or various Nintendo DS games. [edit] I’m working on this, honest. [/edit]
  9. Swim every chance I get. [edit] Because of pool-related technical difficulties, I haven’t been able to go swimming yet but I’m hoping the pool will be ready by July 1st. [/edit]
  10. Go on regular photography adventures and try to improve my photography and photo manipulation skills. [edit] Also working on this. [/edit]
  11. Start working on, continue working on and finish my NYC trip scrapbook. Do several pages of my NYC trip scrapbook. [edit] I’ve almost finished one page of my NYC scrapbook. So, I can’t see myself getting the whole thing done this summer. Poop. [/edit]
  12. Regularly update Kill Jill Goes To College (and these updates have to include helpful articles and not just me blabbing on about stuff in my own life). [edit] Frig. [/edit]

Well. That’s unfortunate.
