Vanilla Coke is my favorite soda. When the gas station down the street from us didn't have actual vanilla coke, I thought I'd try the zero kind and see how it tasted.

I don't advise anyone to try Vanilla Coke Zero. Ugh, I was so disappointed.

Yesterday I realized that the 12th of this month was the one year anniversary of me having my nose pierced. So, this entry is dedicated to my nose piercing. It was a painful experience, but brought something different to my face.

Happy 1 year birthday, nose piercing. Sorry I was late. =/

This would be my desk at work. It's a very small space and when the next person comes on shift at 3 PM, I have to switch computers on the other side of the room. Even worse, the phone is on this desk, so if the person at the other desk needs to use the phone, they have to come over to that side. Sometimes I feel like my privacy is being invaded.

Oh well, only 2 more months.

P.S. If you look close enough, you can see that I was chatting with Jess on g-mail. Hehehehe.

I like Elmo.
Yes, I am 24. I left my camera at home today, so I didn't have a good photo op. Sorry. =/

When I went home this weekend, I found that my mom had hung up a picture of her family from back in the day.

I know the quality isn't that great, but that's because I took a picture of a picture.
But yeah, starting from the top-my grandmother, my grandfather, my mom, her older brother-my uncle Jimmy, and my mom's younger brother-my uncle Craig.

I have been trying to go to my favorite coffee shop in New Haven with my friend Danielle all weekend. This coffee shop is our place. Everytime we hang out, we go there. Well, our plans kinda got messed up and we were going to go today; but she had family stuff to do as did I. Out of curiosity, I called the place to see what time they closed today. I figured since it is Memorial Day, that they would close at 6. They actually close at midnight! I sent Danielle a text message and waited a little bit for her to respond. Her phone is stupid, so I figured she probably didn't even get it when I didn't hear from her. I decided that I was going to go by myself since it is my last day before I go back. Koffee Too? (yes, with the question mark) was its previous name, but the changed it to the Publik Cup or something like that. I hate the name, but as long as they have their amazing coffee, I will still continue to go there. Their coffee is still amazing and I give them props for having this cupholder with this advertisment on it:
Hehe, I am going to keep it and stick it on my mirror. (Hey Jenn, that's Yale in the mirror on the right.)
Funny thing is that Danielle called me as I was driving back home and we are going to go there later tonight. She doesn't have to know that I already went there, right? If you won't tell, neither will I. =)

Today I got to hang out with 3 of the most wonderful people on the planet:

L-R: Judy, Athena, Me, and Dee. Athena says we're all grown up. And I say, well, that's cool as long as we still get to have our gatherings here:

Funny story-I went to put gas in my mom's car and I accidentally got 89 instead of 87.
$4.49/gallon for gas? All I have to say is Thank you Jesus that I do not have a car right now.

Happy Graduation Southern Connecticut State University!

Danielle, me, and Ashley.

Myself and Billie Jean. (For the record, I think I look like a mom in this picture.)

Those were the only 3 people worth taking pictures with. Happy graduation class of 2008!

So, you,my dearest friends/readers/people/animals/ whatever you like to call yourself, you get not 1, but 2 pictures for today.
I have not had my haircut in about 7 months. I met up with one of my old friends from high school, who is now a hairdresser, and she cut my hair for me.
As you could imagine, not having my hair cut for 7 months meant dead ends, split ends, and extra long hair.

A.K.A.:We had decided that we were going to go a little bit shorter than shoulder length. Wellllllll, Rachel kinda got scissor-happy and here is the result:
Can you saw wow? When I looked in the mirror, I kinda freaked out a little bit. All of my hair on the floor also freaked me out. It is a lot shorter than I thought it would be, but you know what? I needed something different. It's been a LONG time since I've had my hair that short and I have decided that I like it. It's gonna take some time for me to get used to, but hey, doesn't that always happen when you get an extreme new haircut?
Here's to healthy, happy hair.
P.S. Don't you love that I take pictures in my CT bathroom? Hehehehe.

I know it's not the most exciting picture for day number one, but hey, at least you know that we keep our bathroom clean here on the second floor of the dahlia house.

Be prepared to be amazed.
