I'm just consistently inconsistent.

Never betray the way you've always known it is.



October 12th, 2007

So, I haven't done a lot of non-private entries these days...but I've been feeling unusually content lately. I'm not always happy with where I am, but I'm quite happy with who I am, if that makes sense. The past year has been fairly fucked up, but it could have been a whole lot worse. Looking back, I don't regret any of it. And, cliche, cliche, I've learned a lot.

I've been art-ing (?) it up lately, and that makes me happy. I've been drawing some less-than-serious stuff, but I've also been working on some serious paintings. The downfall of all of this is that I keep finding more shoes/articles of clothing that have paint or ink on them...probably everything I own will be stained by Christmas. And this is just one more thing to keep me from doing my homework. I mean, I still get it done, and get good grades, I just put it off even longer now...

On Tuesday, Genevieve and I saw Saves the Day acoustic, which was entirely amazing. Like, to the point where I could have been shot walking outside after the show and I wouldn't have minded. The majority of people in attendance were serious Saves the Day fans, therefore there were no annoying 14 year olds, because 14 year olds tend to not listen to Saves the Day. They played for an hour or so, then took a short break, then came back and took requests for a while. It was so personal. And they played pretty much all of my favorite songs. And I sang along and my throat ached by the end of the show, and I was at peace with the world.

Yesterday was a good time. Sarah came over and we had an unsuccessful mission, but that wasn't our fault. Then we went to the park for a bit and were very chilly, then we went to the Grind to meet Max. Eventually we ended up at Meijer looking for pens. James met us there, and wanted food, so we went to Arthur's and had tons of fun taking pictures with Sarah's laptop. It probably doesn't sound as excellent as it really was, so just take my word for it.

My brother is going to homecoming tonight. That makes me feel old.
Cortney's daughter should be here any day now. That also makes me feel old, but mostly I'm just excited. And really happy for her. But, come on Lila, get out here...

I'm home.

I think New York was good for my mental health. I'll probably have a nice big picture update and stuff, once I feel like it. So it might be a while, because I have a whole lot of picture uploading to do.

Yay, it's "summer"!

I sort of can't believe I'm done with my first year of college. It was...an experience, hardly what I had expected. But this semester went really well (and really, really fast), and I think I've started to figure out the direction I want to take, or at least the direction I don't want to take.

Today, after finals, I took a giant nap, which was amazing, then I went to Arthur's with Sarah and Kyle to celebrate mine and Sarah's 2 year best friend anniversary. And we discovered that "easy listening" music isn't all that easy to listen to.

When I got home, I had the sudden realization that nearly everything the psychic told me last month has happened, or is currently happening. It almost creeps me out. I still don't necessarily believe it, but out of extreme curiosity, James and I are going back tomorrow morning. This is how they get you, I bet. Oh well, it's fun.

April 24th, 2007

I've given up sleep for finals. It's starting to catch up with me.
But I only have one more day.
Yesterday seemed to last for years, though. Today did too, I think.
It probably wouldn't be so bad if I didn't leave everything to the last minute.

I have contacts again, and I don't think I like my face without glasses anymore.
I was going to buy new ones, too, but I couldn't find any that I liked.
Is it weird that I'm so attached to my glasses?
Contacts are more effective; everything is so big and bright, but it almost hurts to see this clearly.
Or maybe it's just the lack of sleep.

April 2nd, 2007

I skipped class today, but it's ok, because I haven't missed much this semester. I'm getting a 4.0, so basically, I'm amazing. Just at school though; I still suck at life.

I worked Wrestlemania yesterday, and it almost killed me. I can't really walk, because I fell down the stairs the other day and hurt my knee, and 11 hours of standing on concrete didn't do much good. And then I think I ate something bad, because I feel pretty nauseous. But, Wrestlemania...I have NEVER seen that many people at an event. It might have just been because our booth was right by a huge window overlooking the doors, and I could see everyone waiting to get in (which was really cool; people watching is my favorite), but I'm pretty sure they outsold anything I've worked before. And it was louder than a concert. And they had fireworks that scared the shit out of everyone, every time. It was funny. And the crowd, despite their urge to purchase $350 replica belts, was very nice. So it really wasn't as awful as I thought it was going to be, other than being half dead today, but that usually happens when I haven't worked in a while. It made me miss working all the time like I used to, because it's never boring.

Waste my days...

Today was terribly dull. It began with some coughing (AGAIN) and a dream about art history to wake me up, and ended with an argument about Kenny Chesney's stupidly shaped head. And it IS weird looking, by the way. Why do you think he's always wearing a hat?

At least it was nice outside. I sat in the backyard and read another Greek play (Lysistrata, where the women go on a sex strike to end a war) for history. It was actually pretty amusing.

(no subject)

Gosh, where have I been?! Ill, mostly. I have a lot to say, I think, and once I feel like saying it, I will.

March 1st, 2007

I haven't updated in a while, because lately I have no attention span. I haven't finished anything I needed to do over the break, and I sort of hate myself for it.

I had a lovely weekend, though. Went bowling, spent lots of time with Cortney, made a new friend, watched bunches of movies...Then yesterday I went to the mall with Lauren and then the Grind with lots of people and we played Uno but didn't get threatened this time, so that was good.

I'm staying tonight and tomorrow with Cortney, which should be fun, even if I have to do homework at some point. I like that I get to see her on a regular basis lately. Then, Katie comes home this weekend too, because everyone else has spring break NEXT WEEK, when I'll be back in school. At least I only go three days a week.

February 19th, 2007

Coldcoldcold. I'm tired of living in the attic. But that's a lie; I enjoy the isolation, just not the shitty insulation.

I think it's about time to get over this driving phobia...I might even mean it this time. Of course, none of our vehicles work now, so I don't have anything to practice on. The minivan is dead. My mom is pretty sad, because she loved it, and we can't afford another one.

I'm rambling.

But I might make a point somewhere...Collapse )
