10 Things About Josh

Today has been an emotional day. I’ve been bursting into tears left and right. I spilled some Wild Cherry Pepsi on my laptop and I was nervously waiting for my Apple store appointment, fearing that my new laptop would be dead. Oh, and Josh left for college today.

But I thought that since Josh will soon be making new friends at Columbia, that I would make a list of things that these new people should know. It took me five years to realize all these things, so I’m doing all these new poeple a favor by just writing them out here.

  1. If you want to ask Josh a question, you need to call him directly. He does this thing where he reads your texts, acknowledges it in his head, and then puts his phone back in his pocket. Occasionally he’ll text back, but if you really need to get an response quickly, just call.
  2. If he says that he’ll be somewhere at 11, he’ll be there at 11:30 at the earliest.
  3. If you ever need to use his cell phone or laptop, it’s all in French. This is just something that you will have to accept.
  4. When Josh gets really excited about something, he puts his hands in his pockets and runs around in circles. Don’t be alarmed. It doesn’t happen too often, but it can be frightening the first time you see it.
  5. He procrastinates a lot. He’s (obviously) really smart, but that’s just the way he works.
  6. Josh will pretty much do anything you ask him if you ask him enough. This is something that he will later feel bad about, as he feels like he says yes too much. This is probably true.
  7. Going off the last point, Josh will join too many clubs and take on too many responsibilities. Be a good friend and try to persuade him to restrict himself from all these things. I want Josh to stay sane throughout college.
  8. Josh doesn’t sleep very much. And if there’s no food around, he won’t eat very much either.
  9. Josh is a slow reader. He’s sort of slow at everything. Of course, this is because he’ll remember it all better later, but just at the time he’s doing it, it seems like it takes forever.
  10. Sometimes Josh just gets overwhelmed by everything and needs a little breaky breaky. It’s best to accommodate these needs. Just give him a Britney Spears CD and let him recover for a bit.

So there you go, Josh’s new friends. Some facts about him and some tips from me. I’m looking forward to meeting you all.

Oh, and my laptop is just working fine again, by the way. Although they keys do feel a little sticky. Does anyone know a good way to clean under the keyboard?

My Weekend

Besides for the Womanizer premier, it wasn’t very exciting.

I went to the zoo with my mommy and daddy on Saturday. No present sister meant no fighting or anger, which actually resulted in a nice afternoon. I saw an iguana sneeze. That was pretty exciting.

And today I stayed in my pajamas all day, never left the house, and filled out applications and wrote essays all day.

I guess the new chapter of this blog will be “Elaine and Josh Go To College”.

Here’s where I’m applying , in amphibolical order:

Emerson College

College of Santa Fe

Columbia College of Hollywood

Savannah College of Art and Design

SFSU

CSU Fullerton

I feel stressed.


Well my weekend, besides the Womanizer video premier, was also very unexciting. I spent 12 hours at an MUN Conference and came out with a fancy piece of paper (that I’m very of proud of actually). I’m just a little pissed because there was a bitch from Huntington Beach that pushed me out of the formal caucus.

For you non-MUNerds, it doesn’t matter. Just understand that she was a big bitch and stole valuable points from me.

As for colleges, high school is intent on making everything so difficult– why do I have so much homework? Shouldn’t I be given some time to just work on my apps? Doing apps is even kind of fun! I just don’t have time! I officially blame all my procrastination problems on school. And Facebook. And Britney Spears.

Recently I decided (for the second time) that I would for SURE do an architecture portfolio but as the days tick by and get closer and closer to the deadline, that dream is slowly dying. It’s really too bad.

College list in amphibolical order:

Columbia

Yale

Harvard

Brown

Washington U in St. Louis

UC Berkeley (I can’t even fucking spell it!)

UCLA

MIT?

Princeton?

The only good things in my life right now are Womanizer and eating out at lunch during 4th period Poli Sci.

Please Jesus, just let it be December 2nd already!
