I was reading the Star Ledger this morning and, for some reason, found this article very amusing. Maybe because I know people who have seemed players, but haven't said anything to them as to not "disturb" them. That's the New Jersey way. :)

 I wish they would promote the players more, as I've said tme and time again, but I'd so much rather have them play better than be able to watch an interview with them. I've grown so used to it that when the team does put something out there, I don't take it for granted. 

And hey, who knew Patty was such a comedian? :P

And because my newspaper of choice is based in Newark and the Rangers' beat writer is blogging for the Devils, I get a funny Shanny tidbit:

On a complete side note, it's a sunny 65 degrees outside, with the temperature rising to 70 tomorrow, my house smells of brownies, and the Devils play the Rangers tonight (and no, I didn't forget that we only won one game against them all year, but I also didn't forget that we swept them out of the 1st round two seasons ago. :P). What could be better? :)

 Colby Armstrong and Erik Christensen were traded away from Sidney Crosby to the Thrashers.

Here comes the onslaught of angsty slash.

Off to Indianapolis for a band thing until Monday. See everyone after the weekend! :)

Today, I can legally:

-Drive in New York City

-Buy and cash lottery tickets
-Buy cigarettes, except for in Connecticut, New Jersey, Alabama, New York, and some other state
-Buy porn

-Well, not really a law, but I'll go to jail if I'm arrested, and not juvenile hall
-I get a new license picture

Turning 18 is exciting. :D

I'm bearing my soul to the world.

The summer of 2006, I met a guy at the summer program I attended at USC. He became my best friend and, eventually, my first kiss. Once the summer ended, we kept talking, but, quite obviously, it was different. I'd like to think he became a different person, but maybe it was the both of us. It wouldn't be fair to just blame him. Anyways, I feel like I've finally reached a point where I can put it all into perspective (a year and a half later), and so I've written a little thing based on it. I'm hoping to build upon it, but please..

From today's Bergen Record..

'As expected, left wing Jay Pandolfo (pubic bone ligament) did not accompany the team Sunday when it left for its three-game Western Canada trip.'

That's embarassing. 

On a side note, I got into Buffalo State, AND my birthday is on Friday, AND we won last night in wonderful fashion, AND it was against the Flyers! Life is gracious. :D

The weather here has been grey and cold (in the low 30's) for a week or so, and now, my body is starting to react to it. I've got the beginnings of a cold that shouldn't be coming. To make matters worse, my 18th birthday is a week from Friday. Hopefully by then it'll be gone, but still, I feel the need to pout. *hmph*

Oh, and it seems as though losing one game has set the Devils off, and now they've forgotten everything that made them wonderful. Granted, I saw the end coming during the Atlanta game. I'm a mind reader in that way. :P

Also, a plug; saw Spring Awakening yesterday, and I cannot say more positive things about a Broadway show. Now, I've seen many shows (pluses to living by the City), and this was just wonderful. The script is beautifully written, the songs were all sung with no out of tune-ness, no voice crackings, just wonderfully and how they were meant to be sung. The acting..I felt I was watching a real-life situation unfolding. What the characters felt, I was feeling. The only negative was that I was sitting next to my friend, who constantly asked me what was going on. That snapped me back to reality more than once. :P But overall, I give it a rating of 6 stars out of 5.

Getting into college shouldn't be this stressful.

I'm having a crisis.

Originally, I only applied to University of Southern California (my first choice) and SUNY Buffalo State College. I stayed at USC as most of you know for a month and absolutely loved everything about it. I have visited BSC numerous times, as well as attending a Sabres game (it was like going to a game in Canada. Crazy. :D), and liked the city as well as the campus. Only lately, I've been reading negative comments on BSC; the food is overpriced, the campus is not very safe, the school isn't non-commuter friendly, and students aren't the brightest (it's a good school, but not as good as it's counter-part, SUNY Buffalo ((they don't have the major I want)), etc. 
My main issue with USC is that it's 
A) 3,000 miles from home 
B) I've heard people say that a lot of people with a lot of money go there, and that scene is not me (which is normal, considering it's a private school costing a ton of $$.
C) It's in LA, not my favorite city.

So, I've looked at San Jose State (too much of a commuter school), University of Central Florida (I don't know anyone in Florida), University of Nevada- Las Vegas (same as UCF), UC San Diego (not a specialized broadcast journalism major), San Diego State (too much of a party school), among others. I've considered BU (only took 1 SAT II subject test), Syracuse (way too much snow), some of the North Carolina schools ($$ and same as Florida)..But my question is, does anyone else have any other ideas of schools with good journalism programs? I'm really running low on options and starting to stress a twee. :)
