Subject:Somewhere, something is calling for you
Time:10:42 pm.
Mood: calm.
Past couple of days seem to have gone rather fast, considering that I did almost nothing at all... mostly just school work. Annotated bibliographies are the devil's work, that's all I have to say about that.

Going with Jesse, Charlie, Connie, Tammy, Karp (never met him...), and... I think that's it... to go and see Peter tomorrow in the 'Juevenile Detention Center' as they call it. I think we're hitting a movie afterwards, anyone know what's playing? I'm glad I'll get the chance to thank Peter in person though for being so nice during the whole thingy with Scooter, we'd never even met and he offered to beat him up. ^_^

...I turned the offer down, of course...

Apparently Coach Orion's back. Never really saw Bombay around much anyways, so I guess it's not that much of a change. I'm kinda worried, though, because I haven't played net against more than two people taking practice shots since last school year. It's probably just going to be conditioning, as if that's any better... I should probably find my other tennis shoe, I'm not exactly sure where it is... probably in the bottom of Connie's closet. ><

Also saw posts by Russ and Luis today, now we just have to find the Bash Brothers... Averman and Kenny haven't been around much lately either, but Ken's workload has been the same as mine so I'm not blaming him... haven't seen Banks much either, but I've sort of kept up with him through Linda.

I think I'm going to introduce myself to Bryan Riley before practice. He seems like an okay kid, and since I actually get along with Rick it's not like I can use the 'all Rileys are evil' excuse. I hear he likes video games, I wonder if he plays DDR? I am sooo bad at that, but it's still fun.

I've had the wierdest feeling lately that I've been forgetting something, but I've been turning in all my homework and everything... strange. If I've suddenly forgotten to bathe or something, do me a favor and let me know, okay?

Note to self: find out if Charlie and Jesse are actually planning to jump Rick. If so, stop them!


OOC: There is a chance that my internet will be down tomorrow afternoon during the going to visit Peter bit because we're switching providers in the morning, so those in the group that are going will have creative control in the time that they're gone, and I guess she's just in the library for the rest of the time... unless I show up, in which case I'll take care of it. ^_^

Subject:Catching up...
Time:10:48 pm.
Mood: blank.
Okay, for anyone who had their head up their ass the past couple days, this is what happened.

My grandfather, the man who got me interested in hockey, was diagnosed with cancer. As a result, I spent a lot of time holed up in the library or just walking around campus, kind of avoiding people. I flaked out on the dance because I didn't want to have to act like I was happy when I was falling apart inside, and I didn't tell you guys because I didn't want to ruin your night.

Okay, so, I guess you didn't have your head up your ass about that part.

Then, Scooter and Traci had sex. Yep.

However, all reports are that she initiated the situation. I'm not saying that I forgive him, but I do worry about him. I know he got pretty drunk and puked all over Cole's car and girlfriend, and he'd always seemed pretty against under-age drinking. I'm still trying to work out how he got the alcohol, no way does he look 21.

Peter's reaction to this was actually the most entertaining, he offered to kill Scooter for me. ^_^

Rick has also been great about it, just because he's in the same situation... actually, his is somewhat worse, it's his girlfriend and his best friend, where in my case it's just my boyfriend.

Regardless of what happens now between me and Scooter, I can't say that I regret the relationship. He was one of the best things that happened to me last year, and he was the only solid thing in the beginning of the year, what with all this crazy stuff happening within the team.

So, Scooter, thanks. For everything.

But I still can't seem to get over the pain, because it comes back every time I see someone and they mention it. I even cut my afternoon classes today and hid in the library because I didn't want to deal with all the questions.

I can see myself forgiving you, honestly. But I can't see myself going through this a second time.

Oh, and I was kidding about the 'any of you looking for a girlfriend?' comment. I think I was trying to solidify the fact that things were over between me and Scooter.


OOC: I'm going to be in and out over the next two days and then gone for the weekend, so for tonight at least consider that you have creative control. I'll be back for a little while tomorrow and Friday, and then I'll probably figure something out for the weekend... I'd feel wierd sending her home, though, because she wouldn't go all the way back to Maine unless it was something big... and I'm not planning on anything serious happening with her grandfather until I go to camp for a week in August. Anywho, talk to you guys later!

Any of you guys looking for a girlfriend?


I'll be holed up in the library for the rest of the day working on my history project, if anyone wants to come join me.

Time:1:00 pm.
Mood: pensive.
Well, a lot has happened since the last time I wrote in here.

On a happy note, I'm an 'if necessary' swinger for Varsity... they've got two goalies, I guess, I'd never even seen the back up goalie play so I was hoping to maybe get the second line spot, but being a swinger's okay by me... I was talking to Rick about the training and I'm not sure if I could handle it just now, I knew I should have worked out more over the summer.

Someone, I forget who, made the point that next year I'll be on Varsity because Scooter will have graduated... but I can't seem to be happy about that because it means he'll be gone. He's one of the few people that I'm close to that hasn't had some sort of drama this year, so he's always capable of handling my breakdowns when I start thinking about all of it...

By the way, Cons, I'm going to run into town to restock the fridge... what kind of ice cream do you want? I was going to get mint chocolate chip but I couldn't remember if you liked that kind or not, and since you'll probably be the one eating it I figure I'll get you whatever kind you want. Although it'd be nice if it wasn't Ben & Jerry's cause that stuff is uber-expensive.

So, apparently Linda is pregnant with Adam's baby and is going to keep it... wow. I'm up for babysitting, you guys... that's going to cause some major issues but I guess we'll just deal with that when it comes to it.

Also, Connie and Guy are semi-broken up (I think) which kinda confuses me. They both keep posting about how much they love each other, and yet they keep having all these problems. And then Peter (whom I've never even met) got all bitchy at Connie in his journal... I better get extra ice cream. You want anything else while I'm out, Cons?

Tried going to see Scooter but he was dead to the world... I knew those Varsity practices would be tough, if he's pushing himself this hard before the season even starts...

I'm gonna go for a run before I head into town, then I've got some major studying to do, so I guess I'll see you guys whenever. :-)


OOC: I'm going to be gone until Sunday, most likely, so I guess you have somewhat creative liscence with Julie- if you want to hang out with her or what not, fine, and I guess assume that she's going to practices and such, just don't do anything that would be a major decision, like... I dunno. I trust you guys. Oh, and she's going to Dwayne's concert tonight. Yep. ^_^

Subject:Long time...
Time:11:17 am.
Mood: frustrated.
Okay, so, I haven't written in here for a while... I guess I just didn't feel like there was anything to say.

I'm kind of with Charlie in this whole situation... there's so much going on that I want to make sure I have it all straight before I go blow up at someone.

For example, everyone leaving the team. I understand the reasons and respect their decisions, but I really wish you guys would come back. Once hockey season starts (when is that, anyway?) things will probably get a little more back to normal- you guys know that we always click better on the ice.

As far as Banksie and Linda... I dunno. I never really talked to Linda much when Charlie was dating her, but I seem to be seeing her around a lot more now that she's with Banksie. Course, if he moves to Varsity again this year I'll be seeing her even more, seeing as I'm with Scooter...

Thank God for Scooter, by the way. Everytime I come back to the room I feel like my head is going to explode. It's way too quiet, all of my food is always there... I miss Cons way too much... I'm not sure if I want another roommate though, that would kind of cement the decision that she's gone. Anyway, I've been finding myself escaping with him more and more lately... I know most of you think he's just some Varsity goon, but he and Rick have both been really supportive in all of this.

Oh, and Rick, as far as Scooter spending way too much time with me, I think he's just been trying to help me out. Sorry if I've been stealing your best friend. ^_^

I'm really getting geared up for this hockey season, though... I've been over to the rink a few times with some of the Varsity players, and a lot of times just with Scooter, and I really feel like I've improved a lot. Does anyone know when we're starting? I haven't even seen Coach Bombay since he got here...

Also, I apologize for not commenting more on your entries... most of the posts on my friends page aren't from the Ducks though, they're from Linda or one of the D5 Ducks... not to say that they're not Ducks or anything, just that Tammy's the only one I've even been introduced to and that was only the once... I kinda feel wierd reading her journal, I guess. And there's also the small issue that a lot of what's being posted about makes me want to scream in frustration...

Well, now that I've gone and gotten myself nice and aggravated with this entry, I'm off to go find Scooter, if he's even awake yet. Doubt it... I'll just have to get him up then. :-)

(OOC: as far as not writing goes, there's the reasons that I wrote about as Julie, the fact that I had heard from somewhere that the game was being shut down, which apparently isn't true, and also the fact that my internet was out for four days last week and I've been trying to catch up on what happened. Sorry!)

Subject:Will the raindrops as they're falling tell a story?
Time:4:48 pm.
Mood: anxious.
I'm updating from a library computer, just hiding from all my problems...

I know I should go look for Connie, but I'm so horrible at these 'being a good friend' things... I love her, but I don't think that it's me that she wants to talk to right now. Cons, I'll be in the room later, okay?

This year is going to be so different...

1. Bombay is back. I think this is a good thing, but Orion did do an awful lot for us, especially as far as defensive skills go. As a goalie, I can appreciate this.

2. Connie and Guy may be over for good now.

3. Jesse is going to be back, along with Peter, who I don't know all that well but am starting to resent for causing all these problems with Connie.

4. Portman is stuck in Chicago. This is very not good... I think Fulton misses him a lot more than he ever lets on, and he does all of our spirits a lot of good.

5. I'm seeing a lot more of Scooter and the rest of the Varsity team, which I think some of the Ducks aren't too pleased with...

6. There are most likely open spots on the Varsity team... and I'm thinking it's highly unlikely that we'll all be on the same team. Banks will obviously make Varsity again, and look at all the problems that caused last year...

Okay, I'm being weepy. I'm sorry. Life has just been kinda crazy lately...

Sometimes I wish I still thought boys had cooties. Charlie's one of my best friends, and now I can't even talk to him without someone making some kind of insinuation. Most of the time I think I'm happy with Scooter, but sometimes I just get this feeling when he kisses me... it's hard to explain... but I'm scared.

I'm not really looking forward to this year as far as academics go either. I'm taking way too many advanced classes... I wonder if it's too late to switch out...

I'm off to try to find Charlie, or Fulton, or Dwayne, or Ken. Someone who's life doesn't seem to be falling apart...


P.S. I swear I'm not depressed or suicidal... I'm just not having the greatest day and all this stuff within the team isn't helping.

Hm. That's veeery interesting... something you need to tell me about, Charlie? And who is this 'significant other?' Did you steal him before he even asked me out?!

How much you want to bed it's Adam... *snicker*

Um, yeah. Rollerblading with Charlie was fun... that's really all I did since the last time I posted.

Anyone know when tryouts are? I didn't get a schedule... maybe if there's free ice time we could go scrimmage or something?

Subject:Am I the last one to do this...?
Time:5:38 pm.
Mood: blah.
Well, after seeing this a bazillion (okay, maybe ten) times, I've decided to give it a shot:

J Jump 5
U U2
L Linkin Park
I Incubus
E Evanescence

Does everyone on the team have one of these things now?!

Well, anyway, if I somehow missed adding you to my friends list, drop me a line.

I can't believe we're almost sophmores! Does that sound insane to anyone else?

Something that my Mom brought up last night, though- what happens if one of the Ducks makes Varsity? Obviously that didn't work out too well when it happened last year... yeah.

Well, it's too nice outside to be pessimistic, so I think I'm going to go rollerblading. Anyone want to come with?

Time:8:21 pm.
Hey, hello, and what not. This is kind of just a test post so I can play around with my journal settings. I'll probably delete it once we actually start roleplaying. Yep.

Any of you people who made journals for your Ducks, let me know in a comment so I can add your journals to Julie's friends list. This should be fun! Wahoo!
