Looking for the silver lining

Lately, my posts have been negative so this post I am going to try to focus on the positive.

This March I'm going back to Arizona. Mom's coming with me but we get along nicely when we're on vacation, like we used to be. It'll be nice to get along for a few days. We're staying at one of the timeshare's resorts in Northeast Arizona. imonsie and her hubby might join us since it's a two bedroom. Hopefully they can but it isn't set in stone. I want to go back to the Canyon, the southeast or northeast rim this time. I'm also planning on going to Meteor Crater and Painted Desert and possibly the Petrified Forest, lovely! It'll be bittersweet though since I won't be staying, I want to move to Arizona in the worst way. One day in the not so distant future I hope :)
We're going the 21st and we're coming back the 26. On the 27th the unveiling of my grandmother's tomb will happen and my family from Oregon will be in. That will also be very bittersweet since they are staying only one day, going to Mexico on the 28th. After the unveiling we'll all have brunch and I'll try to get in as much quality time with Ben as a I can. I am so freaking proud of that boy, I just found out today that 17 college universities across the country contacted him because of his pre-SAT scores. While down here they are going to look at UCLA and he has an appointment with Cal-Tech, one of the colleges that contacted him. Cal-Tech is freaking hard to get into so for them to contact him...that says something. That boy is going to far, I'm so happy for him. I hope he gets into a college here. Even if I'm living in Arizona (or another state), I'd visit as much as I can. Not just for Ben but also for Andrew.

This winter I'm going to NYC. I'm saving for it, putting in a little at a time. Hopefully everything will work out nicely for that. Also this winter, I'm goint to Israel. I'm going to go through Birthright Israel which provides a free trip for Jews from 18 to 26. I'm excited for that! From there I am either going to go to Egypt or Italy and Greece (well, try both countries, haha). It'll be much cheaper if I fly from Israel then if I fly from here and since the Israel trip is free, I would only have to worry about that other half of the trip. Originally I planned to go to the UK after Israel but I want to take in a 2 week trip to the UK and wouldn't be able to do that this winter. I will go to the UK one day, just not at this moment in my life.

I've been doing some volunteering, cleaning the beaches and parks. I'm trying to look into other volunteer opportunities. Since I want to move fairly soon, I'm going to start going through my stuff. I have so much crap and I really need to get rid of a lot of it! I'll donate and sell :)

I'm getting pretty good grades in my classes and there's nice people in them who are interested in the subjects. Next week I'm going to Whimsic Alley for a concert, I'm going to see The Remus Lupins, the Whomping Willows, and the Justin Finch Flechleys. Never heard the last one but I adore the first two groups. I saw The Remus Lupins at the release party for Deathly Hallows, it'll be great seeing them again!

Hollywood Bowl season is coming up, I gotta look into shows.

I have this irrational wariness of looking at photos of The Ring girl (Samara). I don't know why, horror and psychological thrillers do not scare me. The Ring scared me the first time I saw it though, and I still get twitchy when seeing it. For some reason though, looking at photos of that girl really get to me. I was just looking now and I kept glancing out the window, I really don't understand what's up with that. I used to know the brunette. She went to my school. We got along alright :)
GOD NO!
My heart lurched when I saw that photo, I am not clicking on it again. No no no no! I really have no clue why I have this irrational...okay fine, I suppose fear of this girl. *SHUDDDDDDER*
This gives me lolz though. It's so true, I'd wake the dead with my scream if that were me!

That girl who plays Samara looks NOTHING like that now. She's a Disney Channel kid and I saw her and was like @_@ and damn near broke my jaw when it hit the floor. She's Lilo's voice in Lilo & Stitch and she's been in a ton of other things. Daveigh Chase.

And that girl who plays Evil Samara in that picture you linked (from The Ring 2) looks nothing like that in real life either! Again, I was like @_@ when I saw her. Kelly Stables. Also, looking at her profile, I had no clue there was going to be a Ring Three coming out in the next year.

Haha, I know she doesn't look like that now (or in real life). Samara herself though, I cannot really look at her, especially at night. I can probably clink that link right now since there's still daylight though..not gonna though! @_@
That part of her getting out of the well...omfg *DIES*

Yeah, haha, I know I'm just amazed at how they look NOTHING like the character they portray. That movie, for some reason, didn't freak me out that much. I think the first one with the visions freaked me out more. They lady in the mirror and the cliff and the horse that threw itself off the boat, yeah, fuck that noise.

Yeah, the movie itself doesn't really scare me since, like I said, horror movies don't really scare me. It's just that freaking girl..the way she moves and her hair I suppose. The video tape is disturbing though :P

wow - I would love to go to Egypt & Greece. I've already been to Italy, actually lived there for a year.

A coworker got me to watch 'The Ring', she said it was soooo scary. I didn't think it was at all. Very predictable actually. heh. Now 'The Grudge'
was a bit spooky to me.

The movie itself doesn't scare me, it was just a few parts of that really got to me. The way she got out of the tv, and how she walked. Then in Ring 2, her coming out of the well...the way she climbs. It's that girl that gets me, she just really disturbs me.
Yeah, The Grudge was great! I love old horror though, Fall of the House of Usher with Vincent Price. Classic!

Vincent Price is awesome! Love him. Yeah, the older movies are great - they actually had to rely on the acting & not the special effects so much. heh.

Well I want to move out of state but that won't be happening for a bit so when I move first, I'll just move anywhere in the LA area that is within my price range that allows cats. Eventually I hope to move to Arizona or someplace similar.

Yea I didn't sleep for like a week after I saw The Ring...I never saw the second one, yea right! Daveigh Chase played her in the first one, but I know she didn't do the sequel because she thought it was stupid. I thought the idea of a sequel was stupid too.
I don't want horror movies, especially ones I can relate to, like "White Noise" or the one about the internet...yea right! :P
OH and THANKS for the creepy pics...:P
That's cool you're going back to Arizona...hopefully you can see your friend...:)
How nice you're doing volunteer work! I wish I could, but I don't have time. I have to makes the monies...;)
I feel terrible saying that, but volunteering doesn't pay rent and that's what I need to pay for right now...plus we are going to Hawaii in about a month and we need money to do stuff there...I want to go parasailing! EEE!! :)
I do hope you have fun on your birthright trip, it sounds fun...whatever city you go to afterwards it will be fun.
Too bad you don't have someone to go with, that would be cool...
Yea for Ben! :)
That's good you're getting good grades...it's always good to get good grades when you yourself are paying for it...makes you feel awesome...;)

I understand about the volunteer=lack of money statement. Since I don't have a job I can volunteer but I'm still always on the lookout for a job. I need money too...

Yeah, I don't want to go alone but...whatever. Heh

OH yea I'm not putting you down for volunteering, I think it's awesome. I just feel bad I really can't anymore...it sucks when you have a job, you don't have a lot of time for stuff like that. It makes sense, I don't know any people my parents age who volunteer...:P
I could make time though I'm sure. I'm just so tired. That's the thing about having a highly physical job I suppose...
Maybe you will meet cool people so it won't matter you're going alone! :)
