Back to Alaska!

So I graduated on Saturdayyy ūüôā ¬†Got my Associates in Baking & Pastry Arts. ¬†And now I’m back home, looking at all the things I need to unpack. ¬†I’ve been staring at it for 2 days. ¬†But on a lighter note, I got my old job back behind the gun counter. ¬†For how long, who knows since the company is currently swimming in¬†bankruptcy. ¬†Weee. ¬†I start again in 2 hours. ¬†It is much quieter here. ¬†I never realized Charlotte was so damn loud. ¬†JD left to¬†work¬†on the slope :/ ¬†So I won’t see him for even longer but oh well. ¬†I’ve got other friends. ¬†Speaking of, Pete still works at Sportsmans as well so I saw him yesterday. ¬†He just about jumped when he saw me haha. ¬†This while blog is pretty much just me avoiding unpacking ūüôā

Okay, okay. I’ll do it.

Music completes my life…

So I never followed up on the Disturbed Concert I went to a few weeks ago. ¬†In a nut shell: it fucking rocked my God damn socks ūüôā ¬†Caught the Bass players guitar pick as well. ¬†We were right up on the stage and it was amazing. ¬†The energy of the crowd was amazing as well. ¬†Lacuna Coil started the concert, then Chamaira and Killswitch. ¬†Lastly was Disturbed. ¬†We (the crowd) went absolutely crazy. ¬†It was awesome ūüôā

Oh yes.  We were that close.

Oh yes. We were that close.

So Fall out Boy and Dave Matthews were playing the same night last Friday but at 2 different places. ¬†Sadly I didn’t have any money ūüė¶ ¬†So I couldn’t go to either. ¬†Until I met my new friend Ryan haha, who dragged me to Dave Matthews with him ūüôā ¬†It was lawn seats but it was still awesome!

The next night I went to a Blue October concert, which was¬†orgasmically¬†amazing. ¬†They are one of my top 3 favorite bands ever. ¬†I sang every song. ¬†And silly me had no more money for a cab ride home so I walked home by myself for a mile and a half at midnight. ¬†Don’t do that kids. ¬†Oh well. ¬†I was in heaven ūüôā

Two posts in one day, Oh my!

So this was a little too exciting to not write about. ¬†I just bought my floor tickets to see Disturbed in concert on April 13th ūüėÄ ¬†Cara and I are so there. ¬†I had those tickets bought about 10 minutes after I found out about them. ¬†If only Fall Out Boy still had floor tickets left to buy… ¬†I might suck it up and get seats instead of being on the floor. ¬†But I’ll wait a little incase some appear ūüôā ¬†That would pretty much complete my life. ¬†Next to meeting Ben Burnley, of course. ¬†*sigh* ¬†Dreaming of the day…

Ben Burnley, if you somehow don't know.

In today’s installment of Chelsea’s boring life…

March 23, 2009 at 1:21 pm (Uncategorized) (, )

So my leg is pretty much killing me. ¬†It started yesterday and today is even worse. ¬†I pretty much wanted to cut it off when I was walking up the stairs to the culinary labs to get food (which was on point, I might add. ¬†Today was practical day for all the little freshmen ūüėÄ ) ¬†I think I pulled something in my calf… ¬†not sure when though. ¬†I might have been drunk.

On another note, tomorrow is Sarah’s 21st birthday ūüėÄ ¬†I’ll bake her cake today and ice it tomorrow once I get out of workstudy, which is where I am now… ¬†we’re going to Brix for dinner.

Also, in WoW I have hit a delightful (delightful being my word of the week) level 60 ūüôā ¬†Our guild pretty much started a war. ¬†2 guildies were attacked by 1 level 70, and by the time it was over everyone in the guild was in STV to kill the level 70 (wayyyy overkill) and then we decided to just kill everyone we saw on the opposing team. ¬†Before we knew it just about everyone on the server was there and we had a huge battle xD ¬†Feels good to be the catalyst, since I was the one who just decided to kill everyone. ¬†Shatt complained that we shouldn’t kill the low level alliance people since they didn’t stand a chance, but I delightfully pointed out that if they don’t want to get killed then don’t play on a PvP server ūüôā

Ahhhh… I love myself some days.

Truth be told I’m lyin’.

March 22, 2009 at 9:41 pm (Uncategorized) ()

So I had a pretty shitty weekend which was covered up with a¬†ridiculous¬†amount of alcohol. ¬†Woooo. ¬†Some guy was talking shit about me one night. ¬†That’s cool and all except I had never met him and he talked as if he knew me. ¬†I don’t know if he thought I was so drunk I couldn’t hear or what but I was pretty fuckin pissed. ¬†“Scovil’s sloppy seconds” I think would have to be the highlight of the shit he was saying. ¬†Scovil was a guy I had a short fling with, he was a sweetheart. ¬†I was waiting for Tim to get back and he had some shit to say about that as well, about how he couldn’t believe that I would actually wait for him. ¬†Ugh. ¬†So I went back to my room crying and stayed there. ¬†Tim came and found me and I told him and he was pretty mad. ¬†Said I shouldn’t be down here crying over something his asshole roommate said. ¬†And then the next morning Noah, my ex, messages me saying he wants me to be completely cut out of his life so he doesn’t have to deal with shit. ¬†I might add I hadn’t even talked to him since we broke up in January. ¬†I told Alex about that and she told me that they weren’t even allowed to mention me around him O_o ¬†We only dated 3 weeks. ¬†Get over it already. ¬†So drinking started early that day for me. ¬†I never did ask Tim what he said to Tony when he confronted him about talking shit. ¬†They’re roommates. ¬†Or apartment mates rather. ¬†And Tony told me to ask Tim why they call him the cowboy. ¬†Think I’d rather not right now. ¬†Today was good though. ¬†Tim and I chilled and watched cartoons and Smoking Aces (I think? lol) until about 3pm. ¬†Then I came back down to my room and played a shit ton of WoW while he went long boarding. ¬†Haven’t seen him since he left. ¬†I don’t even know if we’re dating, and I’m not sure I want to ask. ¬†Blah. ¬†Boys. ¬†I’ll ask him what’s up next week or something. ¬†No need to push, right? ¬†Oh, and I’m trying out this new thing with him. ¬†He’s kinda an experiment. ¬†I am usually very non affectionate in public and I don’t push hanging out at all and let the guy do everything, but this time I’m gonna try to make the moves… I feel needy when I do it :/ ¬†But so far so good, right? ¬†Right…

I’m off to bed. ¬†Yay for 7am class ¬†*sigh*

Yay for importing! Nay for chocolate!

March 18, 2009 at 12:30 pm (Uncategorized) (, )

So I was delighted to discover that I could import my LiveJournal over to WordPress ūüôā ¬†So I did ūüôā ¬†Haha. ¬†Anywho…

I have officially decided that I will never make truffles or work with chocolate as a profession. ¬†Seriously. Kudos to those of you who have the patience and the skill to do that. ¬†I’ve been making them for the past 7 days and I am sick of them. ¬†I hate tempering chocolate constantly, and I think it hates me. ¬†Oh speaking of, today was completely off for me in that class. ¬†It all started with me waking up this morning and discovering that I forgot to swap my clothes into the dryer, so my chef pants were wet. ¬†So I waited until those dried enough (I had to get to class!) that I could put them on. ¬†Since I was in a rush I made my coffee black. ¬†It was terrible so I put sugar and cream in it when I got to class. ¬†And then my partner spilled the entire thing on accident and now my knife kit smells like coffee. ¬†And then our chocolate was too thick so we were about 45 minutes behind everyone while we tried to fix that. ¬†And out centers to our truffles were not cooperating at all and kept breaking off pieces. ¬†And then our chocolate had friggin bubbles in it so then the truffles had bubbles on the surface. ¬†Did I mention that the only¬†thermometer¬†that my partner and I have left also broke (mine died the other day)?????? ¬†*Sigh* ¬†Can’t wait to see what work brings me at 3.

The rest of spring break…

March 16, 2009 at 3:04 pm (Uncategorized) ()

Yeah yeah, so I’m a week late but I’ve been super busy. ¬†I think I left off with going to Pattycakes house. ¬†Well the next day I got a call from Alex asking if I wanted to drive with her to Myrtle Beach to get her stereo fixed, and then up to Norfolk, VA to go with her to audition for America’s Next Top Model, since Cycle 13 is for short people ūüėÄ ¬†Haha. ¬†So we left Thursday night around 11 so we wouldn’t have any traffic. ¬†Our friends next door got busted for drinking that night, luckily we were able to warn them before everyone got caught. ¬†Todd, their CM, is our friend and he was the one who was gonna bust them, so Alex and I went through this mad calling stage trying to get a hold of someone in the room to warn them. ¬†Tyler called me back so I let him know, and he cleared everyone out and everything up so no one really got in trouble when security came. ¬†Anyway, Alex and I left. ¬†I had my first cup of coffee that night. ¬†Strange I know, but I don’t like coffee. ¬†We got to Myrtle around 2am and went to bed. ¬†The next day we got her car fixed, finished shooting her audition tape on the beach, finished her application, and went to bed around 6pm. ¬†It is a 5 hour drive to Norfolk from Myrtle so we left around 3:30am. ¬†She wanted to get there around 11 since auditions were 12-3, but I told her we better get there around 8-9am since there might be a lot of people. ¬†We both drove there, it was nice to drive. ¬†I hadn’t driven since September. ¬†We got there about 8:45am, where she changed and stuff. ¬†She was 46th in line ūüôā ¬†I really wish I could tell you how many girls showed up but… there were hundreds upon hundreds. ¬†The line was out the mall door, down the entire side of the mall (and this isn’t single file, they were all bunched up), and down the next side of the mall. ¬†Plus there was about 150 girls just inside the mall. ¬†It was pretty insane. ¬†I shopped for a bit while we were waiting, bought a new pair of converse ūüėÄ ¬†I also ran a bunch of errands for her for things that the girls needed that they forgot to mention, such as a copy of her drivers license and stuff. ¬†We were out of there around 1pm. ¬†We then drove to my aunts house (I called her earlier to say that I drove past her house on the way there and she was mad at me for not stopping. I didn’t think she’d be up at 6:30am on a Saturday). ¬†We chilled there for a bit and went horseback riding since she has a bunch of horses. ¬†We then went out to eat, and finally left to go back to Charlotte around 9:30 or so. ¬†Got to Charlotte around 1am and went to bedddd.

So that was the extent of Spring Break.  It was pretty chill.

Spring Break (Thus Far).

March 5, 2009 at 11:41 am (Uncategorized) ()

So I left for Myrtle Beach on Sunday with Alex, Craig, Derek, and Luis. ¬†I rode with Alex and Luis and Craig and Derek took Craig’s car. ¬†One problem. ¬†The damn radio decided to die in our car that day. ¬†So we had a lovely 3 1/2 hour drive with no music. ¬†It would work if we hit a bump or make a right hand turn, but other than that we had silence. ¬†She got it looked at and something is wrong with the amplifier so it only works sometimes (it worked once we actually got to her house. ¬†We were pissed.) ¬†It was definitely the vacation of car troubles. ¬†Craig’s engine belt broke across the street from Alex’s house, and then something else went wrong and he ended up paying $750 to get it fixed. ¬†Alex’s car went in twice, first time because she had to get somethings fixed, and second time for the radio (they couldn’t find what was wring with it the first time). ¬†Apart from all that is was fun. ¬†We went to the beach even though it was cold, and we went shopping in Myrtle. ¬†We also went out on a floating casino; it is a casion on a cruise ship and they take you out to sea and you can gamble. ¬†It was fun, I had never done slots before. ¬†I only invested $5 dollars though, that was all ¬†I would allow myself to lose. ¬†I had the start of a cold when we first got there and by Monday and Tuesday I could barely speak haha. ¬†I didn’t get a stuffy nose until Wednesday. ¬†It is going away now, thankfully. ¬†The radio didn’t work on the way back yesterday O_o ¬†But we had some good conversations to keep us going. ¬†We had to come back early since Derek is going to a Britney Spears concert in ATL tonight. ¬†It was an interesting trip since Craig is the only straight person, everyone else is gay or bi. ¬†I’m still convinced Craig is in the closet though. ¬†You’d have to meet him to understand.

I got back around 7:30 last night. ¬†I’m still the only person in the apartment so it’s pretty boring. ¬†I ran across James and Patrick around 8:30 though and left with them to Pat’s house. ¬†It was interesting. ¬†I crashed on the couch for the night and came back this morning around 9. ¬†I checked out my final grades this morning. ¬†I got an A in Food & Beverage Cost Control, which I was surprised about actually. ¬†Now that I think about it, I did get a 100 on my final menu project… I guess that helped. ¬†Everyone else did terrible on it. ¬†She never really taught the class, all she ever did was tell stories about herself. ¬†It was a terribly boring and uninformative class. ¬†Thankfully the book teaches you everything and I understand math, I had to teach a bunch of people how to do the math. ¬†I got a B+ in The Foundations of Leadership Studies, not bad, I could have done better but I bombed the first quiz. ¬†I did get a 98 on my Community Service Learning paper though, which helped a lot. ¬†He grades hard but loved that paper, I did it on why I am the way I am (we had a list of prompts to choose from), I figured I have enough childhood issues that the paper would be a breeze. ¬†And it was, I cranked that paper out in 1 hour. ¬†In Communication Skills I got a B+ which shocked me, I thought for sure I would have gotten an A in that class. ¬†I’m still angry about that grade. ¬†And finally for Life Science, as predicted, I got a lovely B. ¬†I had an 81 in that class before the final so I must have done alright on the final (thank God!). ¬†I suck at science. ¬†It makes no sense to me. ¬†Math on the other hand is a breeze, which is why I did good in food and beverage class, it was all business math pretty much. ¬†I got an 88 on that final, but that was because I didn’t do good on the True and False section.

Gah.

Oh dear. Catch-up time.

February 24, 2009 at 6:33 pm (Uncategorized)

So I used to keep a livejournal but that ended sometime last year. ¬†I remember my first entry though, it was about my best friend deciding to marry the guy she’d been dating for 2 months O_o ¬†I don’t think I ever wrote down how that ended, haha. ¬†So they got married last June and are still married ūüôā ¬†They just up and left home though and moved to Texas… I miss her. ¬†I flew from Alaska to go to her wedding, it was way too hot out. Way. Too. Hot. ¬†Especially for me, who was stuck in an unairconditioned kitchen trying to make her wedding cake. ¬†My boyfriend was supposed to be in the wedding party with me. ¬†Jackass missed the wedding. ¬†You want to see a mad girlfriend??? ¬†I was furious. ¬†But the wedding was beautiful, she was beautiful, I sobbed like a baby, haha. ¬†Jen and I had one tissue between the two of us xD ¬†The entire wedding party cried. ¬†It was pretty much amazing. ¬†Kenn showed up not long after the wedding and got the cold shoulder from me. ¬†I finally broke up with the abusive asshole 3 months later ūüôā ¬†All I needed was a little push…

The entire United States seperated us so I figured I would probably be safe enough if I broke up with him. ¬†I had wanted to for about a year but I was scared of him so I didn’t. ¬†Even though for my entire Freshman year of college I was in NC and he was in NH, I didn’t think that was far enough away. ¬†I went back to Alaska after the wedding and we dated until August 17th. ¬†Yeah, I know the exact date. We dated 1 year, 7 months, 1 day. ¬†It was a¬†disastrous¬†long distance breakup. ¬†Luckily I was only stalked for 1 month afterwards, as compared to Janel, she was stalked for 2 and was stuck in the same town as him. ¬†He broke into my facebook account and went through all my stuff, where he found a message I had sent to Cara telling her about a guy I thought was cute at work (he was the final push that got me to break up with Kenn. ¬†I couldn’t bare being miserable any longer). ¬†I was so confused when Kenn knew about Grant because I knew I had never even mentioned the name. ¬†I thought Cara had told him. ¬†*sigh* ¬†Grant is a whole other topic in itself. ¬†I shall write this long tale some other time. ¬†My Menu Planning class calls.
