Welcome to my LJ: providential @ livejournal.com! This journal contains pretty much all the details and aspects of my life, many of which I do not want others to know about. That is why this LJ is:

I am pretty cool about allowing people to join - the only prerequisites are that I have to a) know you fairly well, and b) feel like adding you (don't worry: 99 times out of 100, I will have no problem adding you).

I would also not mind if you added me back. ;)

If you'd like to know a little bit about me before you consider applying (heehee!), click here.

: they are unstoppable. period :

Please read.

Well my friends, I never thought it would come down to this, but...I'm leaving LJ. The time where it mattered to me are long gone - and, also, there's a lot to my story that you don't know yet. So, I'll leave you with an explanation.

As most of you knew, Lauren (aka emissivity) and I were dating for about a year and a half (or so). This last May, it ended very suddenly - I suppose you could say that the distance finally got to us. She changed, I changed...and it's not been easy. Too many memories of LJ are connected to her, and if I don't leave, I'm going to continuously check her journal (even if she doesn't update it anymore) - that's not healthy. I need to move on with my life, just as she's done.

I can't be associated with LJ AT ALL (no links, etc.), simply because it's going to tempt me into trying to pry into Lauren's life, and I cannot do that.

I won't be deleting all my entries, or anything like that - that would be a disservice to the memories we all made. And please hear me on this - leaving LJ does NOT mean I want to leave you all behind. I've started a blog - sheesh - and I'm going to work with it regularly...and I would really like for you all to come with me. I can certainly understand if you don't - I haven't been the best friend, in terms of many things - but I would urge you to consider. The memories I've made with you all are not something I want to toss away, simply because certain aspects of our lives have changed.

I don't have a single regret. Not one - not with her, not with LJ, and not with any of you. While parts of me have indeed changed, the core is still intact. I'm not going to change so dramatically that none of you will recognize me any more. I want to be that friend that I've always been - and I ask you to come with me on this journey of mine to discover myself, if you would find it important.


I want to reconnect with you all, and I hope that we get that chance. :)

All my love,

Here's the deal: I don't belong here, YOU don't belong here.

Hi all! It's been FOREVER since I've updated, so I thought I'd come back and clue in to what's been going on with everyone. I hope you all remember me, and leave me comments - I NEEEEED to hear from you!

This summer has FLOWN - I've been working at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, which would be a decent enough job were it not for the fact that the center has NO concept of organization, or of how to utilize interns. It sure makes me realize how to NOT treat interns, should I ever have one/two/many.

I've also been working on my Dad's website for his new company @ www.bachpartners.com. I think it looks fairly spiffy, especially since I had to learn Javascript to write a lot of it. Certainly not the best site I've ever done, but I'm proud of it.

Now, the CEM website...that's going to be sick. I can't wait to show it to you all - I'm taking my time in developing all kinds of cool features (ack, I've had to cram all that PHP into my head!), so be on the lookout for the link. It's going to be awesome.

Life is going really well - I certainly miss being away from Boulder, and my family up there (so to speak). I'm especially for us going to football games this fall - that is always a complete blast (and who knows, CU might actually be high on the map this year).

I guess that's it for now (I have to help K-Town with her homework)!! I hope to hear from you all soon! ~ A.

It always hurts to give your love and support to someone, only to have them throw it in your face.

My T-Shirt Venture

Hey everyone - as some of you might know, my roommate Bret and I have started designing Indie-style t-shirts, and one of them got picked to be voted upon at www.threadless.com. You may have already received an email from me asking for you to vote on our shirt - if not, here's a banner dedicated to voting upon our shirt:

My Threadless.com Submission

We would really appreciate if you would not only vote on it, but would get others to vote on it. It'd be really cool if our first submission was actually printed (then would could credit all of you). So, if you could, please vote and pass along the need for votes.

Thank you so much!!! <33333

Stole'd from emissivity:

Comment to this post anonymously and tell me what you really for real honestly think of me. And, look, I'll even turn IP logging off. Be brutal.

I love football. Probably too much...I think I'm going to join a fantasy league next year, just to see how it is. :)

Calc test tonight - I feel pretty good about it. Wish me well! <3

Uhhh, okay...

I read an editorial this morning, stating that Lance Armstrong should take a dive at the Tour de France so as to "decrease anti-American sentiment around the world," and that other sporting events, such as Tiger Woods winning the British Open, "don't help, either."

This is absurd. It really is. Yes, it's a shame that the French can't win a sport that they pioneered (in the same it's a shame that a Canadian-based team can't seem to win the Stanley Cup), but since when is that our fault? They live right next to the Alps - there should be no reason whatsoever that they cannot compete, physically or mentally, with Lance. This just proves that he wants it more - and why not? The man stared death in the eye, and lived to talk about it...so why shouldn't he give everything he's got for as long as he can?

Diving, in ANY kind of competition, is wrong. Period. I don't care if people dislike us because our athletes are better trained, better prepared, better whatever. Why should we bow down to let them feel better about themselves? God did not create us to grovel to each other - that's what the definition of competition is. And sure, at the end of the day, you'd like to remain friends. But, unfortuantely, that rarely happens. All I know is that when some French peasant on the side of the rode spits in Lance's face, it really irks me. But, if that's how they deal with an American being the best in their sport, so be it.

That's one of the biggest stories of the century, I'm thinking...

So anyway, it's been a while since I've had a real update, so I'll indulge now. It was really rainy and cold yesterday, and I started out the morning wearing shorts. NOT my best decision, but sometimes, you just have to go with the flow.

This last programming assignment is kicking my ass (but only slightly) - I won't bore you yet again of the details, but I cannot stand computer science (and while I still feel like it is, I've been informed that it isn't really my fault :D). Hopefully, in semesters to come, I will work my way out of this funk.

But! In other news! I'm starting to talk to my advisor about getting a minor in graphic/studio design! Yay! As such, I've decided that I need to start building a portfolio for my graphic work, and so I created root // SLASH. It's just a shell right now, but I think it'll come together nicely.

THe one drawback is that, to take any studio design course, I first have to take Art History...but who cares!? That's like a bonus for me - I love art history. Basically, I just want to be able to keep that book for some future coffee table. *wink*

What else...we're going to start production of the summer issue of CEM, of which I will basically have full control (even though I don't officially become editor-in-chief until next semester, both Toni and Evan decided that it would be beneficial for me to learn the rops of putting an issue together now - I'll probably hit some stumbling blocks, but learning it all myself and doing a good job...I can't imagine there'd be any greater reward). I'm excited - in fact, thesimpster and I have a deal in the works concerning the issue in which I officially become editor-in-chief. Ought to be fun!

Working for CEM has made me realize that if I couldn't make the cut in Hollywood graphic design, I'd love to work at a magazine. I know I'd have to grow a lot in my talents, but...that would be such a dream job. I pray that somehow, someday, I can get there.

On a COMPLETELY different note, I'm taking a trip to Mexico this summer! Right before we boys and girls move into our houses, AJ, myself, Trevor, Allison, Chris and Kirsten are going to Puerta Vallarta for a week (sadly, Bret and Mia will be in Minnesota visiting her family during this time, so they can't go *sniffle*). It ought to be fun - AJ's family has a timeshare that they're letting him use, and so we're staying in this 5-star resort, basically for nothing (all we have to pay for is plane tickets and food). That's incredible - believe it or not, it will be the first time I've taken a vacation-like trip without my family (yes yes, I know). It ought to be really fun.

And...I'm hoping...praying...that a certain emissivity will get to come out and visit me right before school starts in the fall...we'll find some way to make it all work, love. I promise you. <3


What else...?

It's sunny and nice outside, and I feel that I'm going to have a severe aversion to doing homework. Oh well! What can you do!? :D

Talk to you all soon.


No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man;
and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what
you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also,
so that you will be able to endure it.
