I'm so very happy, yet so very sad at the same time, having just checked ticket prices. :(




But still...way excited :D

I feel so fangirl-ish right now...

I'm in love with everything right now. I feel like a child who's just stepped into the sunshine after a dark storm. The afternoon is so bright and welcoming; the evening even more so. There is so much to see and do, so much to learn, so much to take in. I am wide-eyed and fully awake.

There are some moments and nights where everything seems to fall perfectly into place. Everything is open and anything is possible. But sadly, there is no going back to that particular point in time. You can recreate the surroundings, but it won't be the same, only a glorified image in flat mirror. It's become so important to me to get the most out of each second of these moments and nights. This is the closest I come to regret; wanting to go back. Not to make these moments last longer, but just to be in them again.

Much love to you all ♥

Current Mood: thankful

My my my, it's been quite some time since we've last conversed, dearest livejournal. You must forgive me for that temporary-and very odd-excursion into myspace land.

Where to start...Work. Work, for the most part, hasn't changed.
3-midnights are my life, but I do get a paid vacation soon, and I've been looking into side work.
A few very odd things have happened, though, which takes me to...

Story Time!
Oldman Fiance #2 (the quick version):
This old man always comes in and makes small talk. He had always flirted with me, and I just thought "awe how sweet, little old man is hitting on me...adorable" Didn't really think much of it.

Incident #1: He comes in and talks to me for about 10 minutes about how I remind him of his dead mother, with my red hair and pretty eyes and smile. Bit weird...

Incident #2: He comes in and spends a great deal of time going over his plan to get a young pretty girl to marry him. Said plan is this: he buys an expensive new car, and promises to will it to his new wifey. Then he goes on to tell me that I would be perfect...a young 18 year old girl with red hair and a beautiful face.
Cut to: My thought at the time: "Gee, it would be really creepy if he actually showed up with a new car."

Incident #3: He shows up with a brand new car for me.

Ever since, he's been coming in and reminding me that I have first dibs, and that he won't let anyone else in his car until I've ridden in it first.

I'm not quite sure how to handle this one...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Other stuff:

I'm about 3 days and one more persuasive sentence away from becoming an independent business owner...odd, eh? These little surprises being thrown my way sure do make life that much more interesting.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I have been having the most awesome time ever. Just being here, hanging around, and taking in new things...smelling the roses, I guess. My head doesn't seem so cluttered anymore. I feel like an actual person. I'm beginning to understand the amount of power I can have over myself and others...and that this little inferiority complex of mine is just that. A complex. I've been coming to terms with the person I am and can be, which is kickass.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I suppose that's it for my 2 am rambling.
Bedways is rightways now.


Current Mood: sleepy

If you're by and you have the time, tell the Northern Lights to keep shining....

Last night I revisited my first concert ever. I was eleven years old, in the fifth grade, and was taken to Red Rocks to see a red-headed songstress that I had heard maybe two or three times through someone else's speakers and had never forgotten. Fast forward seven years...I am eighteen years old, and tonight, for the first time, I went back to Red Rocks, to see the red-head singer yet again.

Tori Amos is an artist whose music is as much a part of me as every cherished or simply unforgettable memory...
I won't go into too much detail, but I will say that the show was wonderful. She always puts on a really good show, and last night was no exception. She doesn't need stage props or decorations, just a voice and piano..that is enough. Each time she performs, everything is different. There is no tour set list, there is only her and her instruments, and she doesn't stick to any formula, not even her own. She weaves in and out of the music with vocals that are conventionally out of place, but fit together perfectly. She never performs without perfect passion and conviction, which is one reason why I adore her...it seems to come so naturally, so effortlessly to her. She never sings anything half-heartedly...she throws herself into the song and goes wherever it leads her.

She had a very strange and surprising song selection. She sang quite a few others that she normally doesn't throw into the mix, which was awesome. She also did a beautiful cover of "Let it Be."

The scenery was absolutely gorgeous, and the weather was perfect. The sun was setting behind the giant rocks through the opening acts, and by the time Tori came on, there was nothing but a vast night sky giving backdrop to crystal clear stars to look up at. Everything was as close to perfect harmony as possible. Even the breeze seemed to come and go with the music, occasionally and very gently brushing our hair away from our faces, then slipping away as if it was never there.

What a beautiful night and show.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.

Current Mood: impressed

Tonight was by far the craziest night at work ever. Even crazier than getting proposed to by 70 year old men (yes, plural; this has happened twice now). That's the type of thing that creeps you out and amuses you at the same time, but you quickly get over it just the same. However,
I'm still speechless from tonight...haven't quite soaked it all in yet. I swung between bouts of anger and sadness and happiness and every little thing inbetween, as I dealt with some of the strangest people alive. Or at least in the greater Cheyenne area.

These weren't people. They were all characters that you might read about in some crazy out-there book or the Weekly World News.
Or you might see them in some campy John Waters flick, or in an absolutely horrifying movie involving backwoods hillbillies.
But these people couldn't possibly have been real.

I mean...what just happened? I am seriously at a loss for words.

Current Mood: Huh?

Only ten?! Okay, here goes:

1. Driving without a destination.
3. Beautiful music.
4. Watching summer evening storms by candlelight.
5. Dark chocolate.
6. Doing what I can to help take care of others.
7. Finding that the perfect pair of pants is now two sizes smaller than before.
8. Candles.
9. Dancing around and singing while I'm cleaning. (It's quite fun, you should try it)
10.Good company :)

Greetings from the Moonlite Bunny Ranch...
Just kidding. I mean honestly....

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
My heart is pounding right now, and I'm not sure why I feel, almost, nervous. I've been having a very good time here, seeing new places, meeting new people...but the nights seem a bit empty.

I was apprehensive about looking at livejournal, because I had a bad feeling that I had left Cheyenne in the midst of a terrible mess. Some things I know are fucked, and others I just had a bad feeling about.
I suppose, as far as I can tell, I was right.

More on Reno/Sparks:
-Found the most kickass record stores ever, fully plan on blowing majority of small spending budget there.
-Learned that fatherguy is a local celebrity, which lead to me being the hottest piece of ass in Reno, lol. Of course, no one has seen me yet...(I feel like Quasimodo)
-Am waiting for call from Safeway.
-Swam outside and laid in Hammock all day.
-Going to gallery showing of Hedwig tonight :D x 10000000

That's about it, I suppose...there are a few more pieces to my tale, but those shall be saved until I get back.


Oh yeah....I got my new car. And I got to go driving around by myself today, which made me way happy.
Pic!Collapse )

Although, to be honest, I'm not sure of how much I like it. It's fast and aggressive, and way nice for being 13 years old....however, it's just not me. That and the passenger window doesn't roll down, which will drive me nuts. I could have the shittiest car in the world as long as I had access to the open air.
And I feel like a goob in that car...like I should have a mullet and a beer or something, lol. I'm thinking of selling it when I get back. Let me know what you think (yes, all 0-2 of you who might read this thing, I do value your opinion[s])


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Ah, well that is it for me. I feel very mixed up right now. Somewhere between....well....I don't even know.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
PS-Thank you Alyssa...you have no idea how happy it made me to get on the computer and read your little entry.


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
One more random thing-
Seeing the sun set over the Salt Lake was one of the most breathtaking and beautiful moments of my life...

Current Mood: all mixed up.

NERD!


Star Wars Horoscope for Aquarius




You can be cruel and torment people who disagree with you.
Deep down, there is a peace-loving, friendly side to you.
You have a knack for inflicting pain on people and use your intellect during battle.

Star wars character you are most like: Darth Vader




Now that I've gotten that out of the way...

I woke up excited this morning. Excited for today, tomorrow, next week, next month. There are very few moments in a person's life where everything seems right.
I've been feeling like this for about 20 hours now.


Oh yes...and each one of you should go out and buy "Hairstyles of the Damned" by Joe Meno. I read the whole thing in two sittings, which is very unusual for me. It's very kickass.

So I got the IB diploma. Just above bare minimum, as always :]
Although, I honestly don't think I should've gotten it. I know I did horribly on those tests...but whatever. I won't question it. Just take it and run.
Now let's see what good it will do me. ::rolls eyes::

Life is but a dream. (repeat)
So much has happened since I last updated this thing...so much. So I'll just give a brief summary.

*Graduation was awesome.

*The whole fatherguy situation turned out a lot better than expected.

*Summer is a blast.

*Now that I've learned not to care, work is swell.

*All of the weird and unexplainable feelings and dreams I've been having
lately are gone,
I feel like I have my head back again. :D


Oh yes, and I did a new journal layout. I dig it.
Clickety Click!
