well, well, well. its been about two months since my last post. im kind of over this whole livejournal thing..i dont know, i still read my friends page because i love to know what is going on in my friends lives, but updating..ehhh. not for me. so if you want to know what is going on in my life, talk to me. im usually always online, and i always answer my cell. but nevertheless, heres a short little synopsis of the past few months. i finished my first year of college. it was fabulous. i love hartford. i made some great friends, i have an amazing boyfriend, and pretty decent grades..it was good! im living with 5 fabulous girls next year, it will be a party. i will also be the advisor for the freshman on hillel board, and i have a job at a local congregation doing junior youth group and songleading. it should be fun. and good money too. :
about three weeks after school ended, i went to israel on birthright. it was incredible...everything i thought israel would be and so much more. i am in love with that country.
i'm leaving for camp on sunday. ill be back around august 13th. here's my address, you all better write to me:
Sarah Byer - RA
URJ Kutz Camp

Warwick, NY 10990

alright, this is not such a good update. these choppy sentences make me sound like im 5. but whatever, its the summer, im allowed to write horribly. right? write to me at camp, and have a great summer everyone. love you all!

awwww i miss jersey....
Welcome home. You're SO Jersey. You know Wildwood
and Seaside are the most disgusting places on
earth, and only good for drunken after prom
vacations, you know there's always a
"short-cut" to someplace. Isn't
Jersey great? I mean, where else can you go 80
MPH and STILL be the slowest car on the road? How JERSEY are you? brought to you by Quizilla
oyyyy politics test in 2 hours and i havent started studying..wish me luck!!
SAC - i don't know where i'd be without you - i can't believe i've only known you girls for like a month and a half - ily so much!

this week has been a perpetual, unending bad mood...
28th September 2004
its funny cause its trueee
You Know You're Jewish When....
You spent your entire childhood thinking everyone called pot roast "brisket."
You grew up thinking it was normal for someone to shout "Are you okay? Are you okay?" through the bathroom door when you were in there longer than 3 minutes.
Your family dog responded to commands in Yiddish.
Every Saturday morning your father went to the neighborhood deli (called an "appetizing store") for whitefish salad, whitefish ("chubs"), lox (nova if you were rich!), herring, corned beef, roast beef, cole slaw, potato salad, a 1/2-dozen huge barrel pickles, a dozen assorted bagels, cream cheese and rye bread (sliced while he waited) .. all of which would be strictly off-limits until Sunday morning.
Every Sunday afternoon was spent visiting your grandparents and/or other relatives.
You experienced the phenomenon of 50 people fitting into a 10-foot-wide dining room hitting each other with plastic plates trying to get to a deli tray.
You had at least one female relative who penciled on eyebrows which were always asymmetrical.
You thought pasta was stuff used exclusively for Kugel and kasha with bowties.
You were as tall as your grandmother by the age of seven.
You were as tall as your grandfather by the age seven and a half.
You never knew anyone whose last name didn't end in one of 5 standard suffixes (berg, baum, man, stein and witz.)
You were surprised to discover that wine doesn't always taste like cranberry sauce.
You can look at gefilte fish and not turn green.
Your mother smacked you really hard and continues to make you feel bad for hurting her hand.
You can understand Yiddish but you can't speak it.
You know how to pronounce numerous Yiddish words and use them correctly in context, yet you don't exactly know what they mean. Kinahurra.
You're still angry at your parents for not speaking both Yiddish and English to you when you were a baby.
You have at least one ancestor who is somehow related to your spouse's ancestor.
Your grandparent's newly washed linoleum floor was covered with the NY Times, which your grandparents could not read.
You thought speaking loud was normal.
You considered your Bar or Bat Mitzvah a "Get Out of Hebrew School Free" card.
You think eating half a jar of dill pickles is a wholesome snack.
You're compelled to mention your grandmother's "steel cannonballs" upon seeing fluffy matzo balls served at restaurants.
You buy 3 shopping bags worth of hot bagels on every trip to NYC and ship them home via FedEx. (Or, if you live near NYC or Philadelphia or another Jewish city hub, you drive 3 hours just to buy a dozen "real" bagels.)
Your mother took personal pride when a Jew was noted for some accomplishment (showbiz, medicine, politics, etc.) and was ashamed and embarrassed when a Jew was accused of a crime .. as if they were relatives.
You thought sleepaway college was only where non-Jews went ... Jews went to city schools ... unless they had scholarships or made an Ivy League school.
And finally, you knew that Sunday night and the night after any Jewish holiday was designated for Chinese food.
You're proud to be Jewish - and you pass these jokes on to all your Jewish friends!

a-av-avodah..we are avodah, thats right avodah
woah...so tomorrow is september 20th, which means camp's been over for a month...it seems like it's been so much longer than that..but at the same time, it feels like we just left yesterday. i miss it so much...i miss the rainforest, i miss my day campers, i miss talking about camels, i miss DDR, i miss TC 9C, i miss israeli dance, i miss COD..i miss everything about the summer. everyone who had done avodah in the past said it was 'the best summer you never want to have again'..but it was the best summer i wish i could have a million times over again.. :
i miss you
a LOT...i wish you were here.
ok...time for bed. lailah tov...
lets talk about yesterday....
yesterday was quite an amusing day. we = me, cassie, and amanda, for future references. :
so, we all woke up, saw that it was raining and SO yucky outside, and did nothing for a while. then, we went to the commons with erica, yay! we got grilled cheese, put it in plastic baggies, and brought it back to our rooms. we decided to watch a movie..13 going on 30. it was great. then..we went upstairs and borrowed the ring from some random guy, and watched that. then..we watched jersey girl. by then, it was around 8:30..i think. we went to the hawks nest, got some silverware and random other fun things, and came back. we ordered a pizza, went to stephieee's for a few, she gave us some vodka, and then we borrowed sex and the city from marcia. (side note - we were still in our pj's from the night before...we were quite dirty.) so we started watching sex and the city. then someone knocked on our door...it was ilan and his friends. they said they would be right back. they came back in about half an hour, and brought us alcohol. it was good times...and mmm absolut raspberry is REALLY good. so we hung out with them for a while, stephieee came over with a friend, there were a LOT of people in our common room. everyone left at like..1:30 because they thought we wanted to go to sleep. butttt we didn't. so around 2:00 we went over to A complex (where everyone who we were previously hanging out with was) and chilled with them until 3. OHHHH salmon. funny stuff. then, we came back and went to sleep.
moral of the story - if you stay in your pj's all day and barely leave your suite, boys will bring you alcohol.
today will be another lazy day..i have a little bit of hw...and prob. just watching tv and whatnot..i don't feel so great, but kol b'seder!!
x's and o's

5th September 2004
public service announcement - my birthday is this upcoming thursday, september 9th. i will be turning 18. :
anyways..what else? i just woke up about 15 minutes ago, which was nice..and we dont have classes tomorrow, which is even nicer...yayy labor day! this past week has been pretty good - things were very up and down. its very hard to get adjusted to everythiing - when we were talking about college all of last year, all summer, and even when we got home, i had a terrible mindset of 'oh, it'll be just like camp'..and its NOTHING like that at all - we are completely responsible for ourselves, our massive amounts of homework - all that good stuff.
classes have been overall pretty good though! the 8:30 classes are kinda painful to get up for, especially since the professor for that class is the one professor im not partial to, but it makes up for it by not starting until 1:30 on tuesdays and thursdays. its SO much better than the way classes work in high school though...we have so much time in between classes..and its great. yeah.
i've met a bunch of really cool people, which is nice. the past two nights (friday night and saturday night) have been CRAZY and all over the place..but lots of goooood times =o) enough detail in that. haha.
today im not planning on doing all that much..kind of like yesterday. haha. i want to get the majority of my reading and stuff done..but thats about it.
i miss you all and would love to hear from you..pleaseeee call me, im me, email me, anything!! mwahh!
ps - to steph, my wonderful fresh..SOPHOMORE stalker who leaves anonymous comments on my lj..was this a good update? lol
29th August 2004
hey guys! so..college rocks =o) :
moving in yesterday was pretty hectic..but that was to be expected..;i got all my books and everything..it was fun. amanda, my roommate, is really nice - it seems like we have a lot in common, so that should be good. my suitemates seem nice too - we all seem like pretty different people, but it should be good. one of the girls in my suite, cassie, from florida, is really nice - i think im gonna get along with her really well. i spent most of yesterday w/ kelly and erica, and its going to happen again today..i love them. i think its easier for us to approach people and stuff when we are all together.
there was really nothing going on on campus last night, since the upperclassmen aren't here yet..we heard about one party, and a bunch of us went, but there was nothing happening..so kelly, erica, and i all went around together to our respective suites and hung out with people...i think i probably went to bed at like..1:30?
today should be a really good day! im going to shower and stuff in a little bit...then we're all just going to spend the day around campus, trying to get our bearings, find out where everything is and stuff. theres a hillel party at 6:00, which im super-excited about, and hall meetings at 7..and since the upperclassman are on campus starting today, there's probably going to be major parties =o) yay!
if you want to talk, call my cell..its always on!! =o)
love you all!
