Wasting time vs. doing my homework

Where is your cell phone? On my bed.

Your significant other? Somewhere in Cali or in another state. When you find him, please send him back to me. ;)

Your hair? Washed & dry.

Your mother? Keeping herself busy.

Your father? Visiting his brothers.

Your favorite thing? Music, music & more music.

Your dream last night? Well, I've never dreampt about NKOTB until today. I was talking to Jordan and as he left, I then went to talk to Jon when suddenly he started grilling me as to why I was talking to his brother. I gave Jon a piece of my mind {which isn't at all like me} & then walked away. Geez, I'd like to think that if I ever got the opportunity to meet him {a girl can dream, right?!}, that this wouldn't happen. Though I do hear that Jonathan is a sweetheart! ;)

Your favorite drink? Alcoholic: Appletini; Non-Alcoholic: Water.

Your dream/goal? Sorry, but I have more than one: For my family to be healthy, to finish paying off my car (just 11 mos. to go), become a homeowner, to finish school, and to take a trip along the East Coast.

The room you’re in? Comfy

Your ex? Don't know & don't care!

Your fear? Failure

Where do you want to be in 6 years? Well, since I'll probably still be in school, I'd like to be working towards my (future) career.

Where were you last night? Having dinner @ CK House with my Godsister. We used to be real tight (like sisters) up until about 4 years ago when she suddenly dropped out of sight and moved in with her b/f.

What you’re not? Loud & assertive.

Muffins? Blueberry or Banana Walnut.

One of your wish list items? To interview those 5 guys from Beantown!

Where you grew up? In Northern Cali, in the heart of wine country. No, I'm not a fan of the rain or fog.

The last thing you did? Spoke with L about our plans for the concert this Friday. Just 6 more days to go!

What are you wearing? Navy Blue sweats & a San Diego Zoo t-shirt.

Your TV? Was a gift to myself.

Your pets? None

Your computer? A 6 year old Dell PC. I will never ever buy from Dell again!

Your life? Quiet and funny at times.

Your mood? Excited about seeing Duran Duran on May 2nd!

Missing someone? No

Your car? Honda Civic

Something you’re not wearing? Make-up

Favorite store? Old Navy

Your summer? Can't wait!

Like someone? No, unless you count a celebrity crush, who was living as a non-celebrity for the last 14 years. Technically speaking, is he still considered a celebrity?! ;)

Your favorite color? Blue. Purple comes in a close 2nd.

When is the last time you laughed? About 2 days ago.

Last time you cried? Last Saturday when I received a copy of the magazine with my article in it.

Who will repost this? Not sure.

My First Article!

Reality has finally settled in! I'm happy to report that my article has now been published!! YEAH!! I just received my copy last Saturday, so the rest of the viewing public will have a chance to read it this next week! :)

I noticed that after I had e-mailed the publication with my final edits in March, they added or changed a few sentences/phrases. One example is the final sentence at the very end of the story. I wrote something different and what they changed it to just doesn't make gramatically sense to me. In addition, I found one or two typos. I know, I know, no one's perfect, but I distinctly remember the editor telling me that they pride themselves in their work and making sure that all their "i's" are dotted and that their "t's" are crossed. Well, I guess this is all to be expected in the publishing world. Overall, I'm pleased with the final product, which came out to six pages. :)

I will e-mail my blog friends the link to the article soon! Unfortunately, the online version of the publication only has room to post the story; therefore, no photos will be included. Hey, what matters the most is that my name is on the story! ;)

The New Kids are back!

The New Kids on the Block appeared on the "TODAY" show exactly one week ago and let me just say that it was great to see the guys back together again! Fourteen years was definitely way too long! The guys are looking pretty good, especially Jonathan Knight! ;)

The "Kids" confirmed that they'll be releasing a greatest hits CD in May (which will contain 4 new tracks), a new album due out this summer (some reports say August), and they'll be touring worldwide this fall. Word has it that there's a TV show in the works too, which is scheduled to air this summer. I'm thinking it's more of a documentary rather than a reality show.

Ok, so I guess I can wait several more months!
