So. New stuff? [Aug. 26th, 2009|11:00 pm]
Dandy Highwayman
I thought summer break meant that I would have time to become human, but that was apparently not the case. I'm still pretty much a cyborg.

I realized (at 120 hours in) that I completely screwed myself with Persona 3, so I crybaby ragequit, and started Persona 4. I'm doing alright on that one. I think that I made some bad choices so far as which social links I worked on before summer break in game, but I'll deal with it.

Finally got CoM for PS2 again. I'm at Olympus Collesium.

I missed Warped Tour again this year, but I suppose it's not a terribly big loss, even though I wanted to go. Hopefully, I'll be able to catch A Skylit Drive when they come back from Europe.

My classes aren't horrid. I have one left to find out about though. Music appreciation should be good, Health and Wellness doesn't seem like a disaster yet, and in my History class, we're going to make a comic book. I think I'll like that. The only problem is that the instructor switched, and the new one does the web-enhanced classes, and I've discovered that Blackboard is the bane of my existence. It makes me use Internet Explorer, ugh. It's not even that Firefox won't work, it's that it isn't certified yet. So, because it isn't tested, it must not work, amirite?

I finally made the bitchy browser check admit that everything was fine with IE, and it won't let me log in, and I loathe IE so much I can't be bothered to figure out why it won't let me sign on. Also, the college changed everything (again) so now the area where you register/drop/check your schedule/everything is no longer just WebAdvisor, they turned it into goddamn myspace.

Oh, and everyone treats me like a crippled idiot with an IQ of 20, but they still won't scoot their chairs in so the girl with busted limbs can get to the only open seat in class. Awesome. My joints have gotten exponentially worse since I started approaching a healthy weight, which seems a bit odd if you ask me. I have to go out to the student clinic and see if the doc can refer me to someone who deals with joint pain.

Damn that's a lot of babble.

I can't not like MCR. I just can't. I wanted to hate Desolation Row, because Bob Dylan's music is kinda sacred in my house. They have me wrapped around their fingers, guys. That ain't fair.

I'm homesick. I miss Seattle so much I can feel it, like a physical pain, rather than an emotional one. Everyday I think about that grimy little city, the pervasive grey, the familiar haunts, and friendly faces, and everyday they images bring one word to mind: home. At the end of May, I'm going back to visit, and I almost dread it. Going back and knowing I can't stay may just break me.

I have everything I need here, my best friend, a great apartment, a job... But everyday I ask myself, isn't something missing? And there is. To quote Bright Eyes "I hope I don't sound too ungrateful..."

So, I remembered this meme that I did forever and a day ago, that I probably got from Fiona. It was 50 things that make you happy, and 10 things that make you sad. Well, I need a pick-me-up right now, so I think I'll list things that make me happy in no particular order.

The red ones make me fly...Collapse )

I've gotten many emails and phone calls from my friends in Seattle since I moved. The words "I miss you" taste a lie, and I've just figured out why. Attatchment is something I was never good at. I keep too much distance from others, never letting them in. I really don't know why, either. It's something I've always done. Like I'm just visiting the world, trying not to let it impact me too much. Like I don't want to have to miss people.

Human life is too fragile. I know the exact amount of pressure required to snap a human neck, tear off a jaw... I know almost to the exact degree how much damage can be done to a body before it dies.

I refuse to attatch myself to something that will wither and die. The bad thing is, I can't bring myself to see the problem.

Okay. Time for a coherent post. I was propositioned not once, but twice tonight, by not two but THREE people. I was making out with this girl who I was kind of okay with, I told her I didn't want to do anything, because I was on the rag (which I am, it feels like I have the fuckin' anti-Christ trying to claw it's way out of my uterus). She asked if I wanted to go to her appartment, for what I assumed, would be a slightly heavier makeout session. I was probably a bit drunker than I should have been at that point. Clothes started coming off, and I was okay with that, then her BOYFRIEND steps in to join the fun. Did I miss the memo?

So I beat a hasty retreat with the excuse that I still needed to buy my bus ticket to Portland tomorrow (today, really), and that I couldn't fuck around, since I would fall asleep and not wake up to catch my bus (also true).

So I came back to "my" apartment, got my ticket after a bit of a struggle, then Quenton and Sean came over to bum cigarettes. Sean went to bed before Quenton or I finished, so we talked about music. I asked if he wanted to go somewhere else, since Paula was sleeping, and drunk people talk loud. so we went to his apartment, and he put on a recording of him playing. We talked about bands for about a minute, him standing far closer than necessary, but I looked it over (he tends to do that when he's drunk). And he says "I'll get right to the point, I hear you're a great kisser." ... ...



Followed closely by "I'm going to kiss you when the solo hits." He grabbed me, spun me around and ... kissing seems a bit light of a term for that.. I let this continue for a few moments, broke away, patted his shoulder and said "That's enough for tonight."

Now, am I missing something here? So far as I know, I was just acting normal. Normal for my friends back home, but not any different than I would for any of my friends back home. Did my sarcasm fall flat? Did, somewhere in these interactions, I give them the wrong impression? And more to the point, does this make me a tease, or a slut?
