on regular school days i get up at 6:20, right? well it's saturday and i got up at 6:30. SATURDAY!! Plus I didn't sleep a lot last night - if at all, so I'm incredibly tired and once i'm done with this entry i'll most likely go take a nap.


The reason I got up at 6:30 on a Saturday, you ask?


Dance. The only thing worth getting up at 6:30 for.


Only it didn't start til 9. Grace had a soccer game at 9 and there was no way to get me to dance to learn the rest of our MJ dance. So we called Laura (my teacher) and I went to her apartment at around 8. Let me just say that Laura is so awesome. She's not like the stereotypical dance teachers who you have to call madame or are so strict and old and crap. Laura, even though she's probably in her 30's (i really don't know) and has 3 kids, she could be one of my best friends. I look up to her as a role-model sort of person and she's the kind of person you could talk forever to about nothing and it would be fun. She was telling me all about everything she ordered at Victoria's Secret and how if she spent 75 more dollars than she could get 75 dollars off, but she couldn't find a swimsuit she liked that had pads in it because I have more boobs than she does. (We make fun of each other too). Then she went and took a shower and I played with her two youngest daughers Tori and Lexi (Elizabeth was somewhere else). Lexi is omygosh so cute and Tori is so funny. Then we went to the studio and Laura went to go get her hair done and our dance is so flipping awesome and you all have to come to the recital so you can be in awe of my triple (WHICH I DID TODAY YAHOOOO) but laugh at me in spandex. Yes, spandex. *bleh*


Anyway, I've been sitting here eating this deliciously yummy chocolate my dad got me in denver for a while and it's really time to watch a movie and go to sleep, so g'night everybody, luv ya!

i have recently made a very important scientific discovery

the cause of insomnia is thinking waaay too much.

I mean, i don't even think about anything, and I end up getting 4 hours of sleep.

It starts out little, like what I'm going to wear tomorrow, and then it progresses and the next thing I know it's 4 in the morning? I mean, when did THIS happen?

I don't even know how my mind gets so fucking off track. It's like one second I'll be thinking about Alex and the next second I'm writing the most depressing song in the world, when two seconds earlier i had fucking butterflies in my stomach.

So I'm going to take you through most of what I was thinking about 2 nights ago.

When I get into my bed and turn the lights off I flip the radio on for like 2 seconds. If it's a song I like, I keep it on and if it's a retarded song, I turn it off, but I can't sleep with music on. So the other night some song was on and I don't even remember what it was but it was exactly what all of the fake ass music stars are writing about. They all think there's something wrong with them and they're all so depressed and they're all going to go cut themselves cry cry cry. 1) They don't even fucking write the songs. How can they MEAN something to you? Music is an extention of yourself, it's a way of expressing yourself, you can't just put something out there that someone else wrote and take credit for it and act like it's true. 2) They're lying, all of them. It's like, I know I've never gone through what a lot of other people have been through and write about, but I know what it sounds like when it means something to you and THEY DON'T MEAN IT. THEY LIE TO EVERYONE AND DON'T CARE. 'Because it's all about them and everyone loves them and worships them and they fucking know it.' BULL SHIT. Half the world thinks you're a phony ass fuckface and still those people insist on targeting weak people they know will buy their shit and get rich. If you don't have talent you shouldn't be out there using someone else's. Other people haven't been through some of the shit I've been through and if I write a song about it and I sang it, it would mean something to me. If you sing a song about an abusive relationship or something that's never really happened to you and then when you're done you skip off to a bar, get drunk, and have hot sex for the rest of the night, what's that saying? Seriously.

And this led me to the subject of Taylor. Because Taylor is a fuckfaced bitch who insists on making everyone else mad because it's 'all about her and nobody else matters.' She's all like "I'm going to be so popular in High School because jocks are popular there.' IF NOBODY LIKES YOU NOW NOBODY'S GOING TO LIKE YOU IN HIGH SCHOOL YOU FUCKING LOSER! People know that you're a two faced liar and that reputation is going to precede you every where you go.

And I feel fucking sorry for the guy that ends up marrying her.

And that's only half of what I was thinking. But I felt like updating my journal, so there you go.
