T-Rex is speaking at NYU right now.
Wallace Shawn- teacher from Clueless, from Princess Bride, and most importantly Rex from all the Toy Story movies- is speaking at a welcome week event I went to. This was such a great surprise. Just another celebrity to add to my list this week.
Fran: My name is Francesca. You can call me cesca, checka but not Fran.
Me: Oh, I didn't know that. I can call you something else.
Fran: No, I don't mind people that have known me for a while call me that.
Me: What if I just call you "ahhhh, Mr.Shefield."
Fran: Fran's fine.
Tie-dying is like Easter eggs…– Woman at the Jewish Center
You know how we do..
No college move in would be complete without a trip to Salvation army to pick up stuff for the room. Luckily there is one about 5 blocks away… They will be seeing me quite a lot this week.
Fellow friends that need to buy books,
Cheggs.com its awesome. you pay less than half of the money and you send back the text book at the end of the semester/ year and then they plant a tree for every order you put in. That is spectacular.
Magic Johnson is outside my dorm. Love NYU.
Well, I'll see you when I see you.
I just said bye to my parents for a while. I’m officially liberated. It was sad to say bye but even sadder to see them say bye to me. They love all of us kids the same but I feel this was the hardest goodbye because I am the last one. Although mom might be a bit crazy at time, and can get on my nerves, leaving her is like leaving a best friend behind. No matter how wacky she gets, she is...
We're getting there!
Move in was an absolute breeze. No traffic. In and out with the car in 15 minutes. My room may be small, but its really shaping up to be home. We put a pillow-top on my bed and its the most comfortable thing I’ve experienced, Michael Wu is awesome and set up wifi in our room so screw ethernet cables, and pictures of Bob Dylan and Frank Sinatra are at the foot of my bed. What more could I...
My theories were correct.
Applying for low cost housing means my view from my room is a brick wall. But I’m so excited I could care less! NYU here I come!!!
Welcome to New York.
These four words means that, without traffic, I will be at my dorm in 40 minutes. I’m dying with excitement.
Last minute packing with Jamie Cullum and Paolo...
I love finding old journals.

Rhode Island: its been real, its been fun, it...
I will miss the people associated with Rhode Island- dear friends and family-but I am so ready for a change and ready to grow! It blows my mind that I am here already. This summer flew by. I cannot wait for these next two weeks. London- Scotland- New York. Holy shit. Culture shock. I am so ready to embark on this journey. Stay classy Rhode Island, till next time (Scituate Art Festival!).
Johnny Cupcakes gave me a Jurassic Park trading card. I just found it in my bag. Even more reason to love that place.
supahaley: its not any different from normal, but ive been on a huge frank sinatra kick for over a week now. in the car, when im home, 24/7 i hear frankie. and now im watching the 3 movies he was in with gene kelly and i am freaking out. i loved him before, but now its just ridiculous. everyone, my roommate is a closet frank sinatra fan. i can and i will fix that. This has been me for a...
Devin: We need a time and a place for Ryan.
Luke: Ryan really likes scheduling...
Devin: He has a planner..
Luke: In his asshole.
We love you Ryan!
The eagle has landed.
I feel so accomplished.
I'm reposting this so you read and take what you...
I’m cleaning my room. If you want anything I’m giving away, TAKE IT. Sound of Music Sheet Music (John) The 16-Bar Theatre Audition Book for Baritone/ Bass (Sam) 24 Italian Songs and Arias for Medium Low Voice- If anyone is auditioning for schools and need a classical piece, this book is great. I have the same book in a different key and its awesome. “girlie” planner (Ryan) ...
I just found my Game Boy Advance and Pokemon Yellow while cleaning. I know what I’m doing for my flight to London and my train to Scotland. AH! I’m so excited.
Cleaning my room.
I just found the Sound of Music sheet music. I hate this show. I have never even seen the show in its entirety. But last year my grandma gave me the sheet music and I have yet to even open the book. I know La Salle is doing it next year so who wants it?! (expect more things I’ll be giving away later)
And then you have 10 years of herpes flying around.. you know, not a good day.– Leslie Martinelli (January 25, 2010)
I will stay away from Rollercoaster Tycoon and do lots of cleaning and lots of packing. I cannot believe I will be living in Rhode Island for only one more week (thats if my plans fall through and I am not living in Brooklyn next summer). Holy shit I’m excited. But I still have so much stuff to do. Tomorrow will be a day of productivity!
In Rollercoaster Tycoon, I put admission prices on all of the bathrooms and named them all “Its a Privilege to Pee” and renamed my park “Urinetown.” I have a new found appreciation for this game.
There is so much I could be doing
Like enjoying this beautiful day, or cleaning, or packing, or doing something productive like summer reading. Instead, I’m sitting in my boxers playing rollercoaster tycoon. Some things never change.
This should be exciting!
I leave for Scotland a week from Saturday. I’m not excited, but rather stressed. Between all the people I want to see, all the things I want to do for myself, and all the things I have to do, the little amount of time we have left before we leave makes me very stressed out. I have to clean. Lots of cleaning. My room is never a mess, but for some reason this summer has been atrocious. I have...
I just watched the video you compiled of my graduation party. I love it. You are such a great kid, and that is the BEST birthday present ever. Watching that video made me, for the first time so far, very sad about leaving next year. I dont know how that goofy video made me sad, but it did.
To all La Sallians who have never done Hendrican...
Please do not get upset about the flea fly thing. The first time I did flea fly was in the sixth grade at summer stage because becky and katie ryan taught it to a group of the people in the cast. Since, every summer, a portion of the cast does flea fly because they were taught by lasallians. And also, the director of summer stage this year was also a lasallian. Davis allienello went to pegasus and...
I got my car back?
This is dejavu all over again. I got my car back. I drove to the doctors. On my way back, it died. Now I’m stuck in the Cranston penitentiary until the car cools down enough so I can drive it back to our friend’s shop. Another day wasted, thanks to this shithole I call a car.
Dad never needs to purchase cars again.
I got my car back yesterday. It was glorious. My sister and I were going to go thrift and yard sale shopping to look for furniture we could repaint for her apartment and things I could use as projects for my dorm. We got to Providence. And we stopped in Providence. There car overheated again and wouldn’t move… Infuriating. I had the car for one half hour. This left me at home yesterday...
