[ mood | cheerful ]

So I haven't done this in a while....

Things are good...for the most part they are good. But as always there is that little something in the back of my head trying to set me off. But...things are good.

I have a job...well i've had it for a while. It's good money good people and it's air conditioned. I actually really really like my job. Some weeks I work way too much and freak out about it...but for the first time ever there is money in the bank that I'm not spending. Go Wentworth's.

I have a car now too...had that for a while also. It's not pterry but it gets the job done. I like it.

Me and jess have been hanging out alot more lately. Which is good. I love her and she's the best friend ever. It's extreamly conforting to know thatr you have someone that has known you since you were 7 and still knows everythign about you and that has seen you fall flat on your face and knows exactly how to help you get up.

Mike and I are coming up on 1 year. It's weird..it doesnt feel that long but it seems like it just works. We just work. And its good. It's simple, grounded and good. He makes me happy and isn't afraid to tell me to shut up when in unhappy and irrational. He even skips work and college to visit me which makes me feel special, even when im sick and dead like this morning.

School is almost over. and i couldnt be happier, but at the same time i dreading next year when i finally pack up and move away. I dont think i will physically be able to leave jess. I've always had her and even if we were in a fight or didnt talk for a year i knew exactly where she'd be if i needed her and knew she always would be. I know she'll always be there but she won't be there with me and that makes me sad and makes me get a bit pit in my heart.

We're going to Florida this summer....taking 2 weeks to drive down and stay and come back. I think it's a much needed trip. I can finally look at schools and hopefully mike and i can find somewhere we both like so i'll have one less person to say goodbye to.

So all and all life is good. I have a job a car an awesome best friend a boyfriend that i love to little bits and for the first time in a while i can say I am completly happy witht hings. And that makes it alot easier to push out what ever i have to to keep my happy.

[ mood | waiting for the thaw ]

So today was movie filled and quite possibly the longest school day ever. We didn't get let out early but we def. should have. Someone's car died, we rear ended Mr. P got stuck on a hill and Megan the champ pushed us out and now I'm at my dad's.

I was in my first real art show yesterday and I'm a little less then trilled with the results. My piece was displayed very poorly (i.e. the whole decoration and good part was facing the wall) and some little kid with a drippy sandwhich stood over it and said it was ugly. So my ego is a little crushed. I find somehting I'm good at and I still suck...fun huh?

But other then that I;m good, things are good.

I'm so sick of the snow. Iim slowly considering joining my cat as he sits at the sliding glass door waiting for spring. I think if we both sit there nature will pitty us and warmth and the grass and not snow will come and fix all our problems.


Mental note: Next time snow is forecasted....don't wear flip flops.

get me an espresso drip stat [17 Feb 2005|07:00pm]
[ mood | drained ]

I'm finding increasingly harder to handle people lately. If it's not one thing it's another...and the list just keeps going on. It seems that some people cannot be happy. Just think of how much worse you could be...you could be some little kid in Vietnam and you're leg could have gotten blown off by a land mine. You could be one of those kids in the Jimmy Fund commercials waving at construction workers while your body eats it self. You could be in Sudan getting killed in mass genocide. You could be in Lebanon running from car bombs, or in Africa dying from AIDS because you're too poor to prevent it.

But you're not. You're in a house with running water, heat and electricity. You know you will be fed every night and you can sleep in a bed and wake up in the morning knowing you won't face any real harm during your day. You can bitch and moan all you want because we have free speech because in any other country they would have beat the shit out of you with sticks by now. You have the right to a free education, to vote, to speak your mind, and go carry and gun if you so wish.

Your life isn't that bad...its not bad at all. The country you live in isn't bad at all either. And you have no right you make government comments until you are 18 and you pull that lever of democracy. Until then shut the fuck up and spare everyone else. Because really...we don't care.

On a lighter note...well actually not so light:
I'm completly drained of all energy. I haven't had a good night's sleep in about 3 weeks and I'm sick because of it. My body is rejecting everything. I'm so anrgy form being so over tired. Its ridiculous. And school is starting to pile up...yay for school. I'm just gritting my teeth and hoping the "its all down hill from here" theory kicks in. I just want to finish this year work my ass off this summer to make some money, use tha money to spend evey waking minute up to my ears in clay, put together a good portfolio and just get into college. And after that god damn it I'm slacking off like it's my fucking job.

I must watch Jeopardy and go to bed.

[ mood | predatory ]

I'm really getting sick of this new fad of people having to have a righteous cause to hold on to. It's really sad that it's be come a "cool thing" to stand up for gay people or the loser or what ever other oppressed minority you've found for yourself. DO IT BECAUSE YOU CARE ABOUT IT. Giving people pity is not the point. You cannot redeem yourself as a good person just because you pretend that you care. And even if you do...it does not make you a saint.

Lay off of people. Take a second to shut the fuck up and actually think. Look around and take a good 5 minutes to realize that things are not always what they appear to be. You are not always right, you are not always the one being forced into things, you are not the person taking the weight and the strife of the whole world for everyone else.

You are not a saint.

You are a teenaged kid who is hormonal and is over exaggerating everything. Stop bitching about things, because BITCHING NEVER SOLVED ANYTHING. Take all the time and energy you are use to complain about something and try to fix it. No one will listen to you bitch, but people will see your actions. Get off your soap box and fix the things you are trying so hard to feel strongly about.

There is nothing in this world to be so upset about. People's actions do not effect you unless you let them. People's clothing choices, their hair styles, any thing about them DOES NOT CONCERN YOU. Worry about yourself and your own flaws before you pick other people apart, because once again NO ONE WILL LISTEN TO YOU. You are only adding to the ever growing mental pollution that is taking people over and making them think they have problems.

Ray Charles brings me to tears [02 Feb 2005|04:32pm]
[ mood | distressed ]

Georgia, Georgia,
The whole day through
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

I said a Georgia
Georgia
A song of you
Comes as sweet and clear
As moonlight through the pines

Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful the dreams I see
The road leads back to you

I said Georgia,
Ooh Georgia, no peace I find
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind(georgia on my mind)

Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you
ohhhh
Georgia,
Georgia,
No peace, no peace I find
Just an old, sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind(georgia on my mind

I said just an old sweet song,
Keeps Georgia on my mind


Tomorrow is my grandfather's wake...and I think it finally hit me, liek really hit me that he's dead. It hit deep and I have this feeling in my stomach like I need to throw up a bowling ball. I'm so upset but I'm not even upset for myself. I'm upset that Riley and Carol are so far away and can't come up. I'm upset that my grandmother lost the love of her life and that she can't even fully understand it.

I know death ios a normal process in life but it's just something so twisted...you form these strong bonds with people and something so small...an instant of life can rip them away from you and all you're left with is years of memories to remember someon by. It just seems strange. I guess this is all coming up because this is my first real encounter with death. My mother's parents are both dead...her father died when she was 5 so he was never part of my life and her mother lived so far away and died when I was young so I never had a chance to really become attached to her. But for the first 8 or 9 years of my life I was so close to my grandfather and it kills me that I let myself drift away from him and get so angry at him in the last year of his life. Its like people say...you dont know what you have untill its gone.

I read his obituary in the paper and I keep reading it over and over again but it doesnt seem real and all I can think of was what lauren said...and you my grandpa was the man. Its just really sad to see grown men cry. And I have a feeling I'll be seeing alot of sad people tomorrow who I haven't even met. I think it will be almost amazing...from what Ive heard from my father people have been calling all week.

Tomorrow will be very intersting.

fuck the 28th [29 Jan 2005|01:06pm]
[ mood | blank ]

Yesterday was my first day back at school because of midterms. I have 2 new classes...which sadly seem very boring. After school I got coffee with mike, jess and marc then went home and took a nap.

Mike and I decided to go to New Haven for some tea...well first off the tea place was closed.

Then we went to Starbucks and got coffee and decided to go see if anything good was playing at York but I didnt want to see a movie so we headed home.

I called my dad who then informed me that my grandfather had died that night, which I had expected but still came as a shock.

So we got on the highway and found a jeep stopped on the entrance ramp. WHY WOULD YOU STOP ON THE HIGHWAY? So mike swereved and we crashed into the guard rail and the passenger side front quarter pannel of the car is all craked and scratched up.

We got a movie and watched it and I got scared and fell asleep.

The whole thing was my grandfather hasn't really hit me yet...I'm not sure why. I think I've just been expecting it for the past few weeks and kind of just accepted that he was going to die eventually...because everyone does. The memorial service is on Tuesday...which is my dad's birthday which is kind of depressing but my dad planned it that way. They're going to cremate him and I dont know what they'll do with his ashes. I hate funerals and wakes and those awful people who give you the "oh you must be so sad" pitty talks.

when it's not always raining... [12 Jan 2005|08:50pm]
[ mood | stressed ]

I'm getting really really REALLY sick of school. I'm sick of being told I'm not working up to my potential. Yea I know, but look around and note the junior in high school who can't read in my English class, or the people who never come to school. And my half assed work is better then those kids (and yes I know I'm being a little conceded right now, but it is) so why don't you get mad at them. And captain illiterate gets a high five and a "good job" when he reads a page and I just get looked at because "i can do better." Well, if I did worse I'd get a gold star every time I wiped my ass. I'm getting really sick of doing my work and doing a pretty damn good job and getting nothing for it, even from my mother, who just tells me I can do better.

----------------------------------End of ranting-------------------------

My grand father is most likely going to die soon, which is really depressing. My parents moved here 20+years ago from Oklahoma because the doctor's told my dad my grandfather didn't have much longer to live. The man has 9 lives, and it's sad that he's barely holding on to the ninth one now. He had polio when he was younger and was basically crippled for about 3 years, and he went on to be an all state football player and go to Yale on a full baseball scholarship. He fought in 2 wars and managed to stay alive much longer then expected.

It's just really sad and upsetting to see someone who for the longest time was one of my favorite people. He as the person who let me cover his basement walls in paint and got me into horseback riding. And it kills me that I've been nothing be rude and distant to him for the past year.

My mom and I went to go visit him in the hospital on Sunday and he just looked so weak. He can't even stand up on his own, but the doctor's aren't 100% sure what's wrong with him. And to top it off I'm reading Tuesdays with Morrie, the saddest book ever.

I'm on the verge of being a wreck...with all this going on I just want to relax but I have school and it seems like everyone has been dumping their bad days on me lately.

what's that stick shooting out of earth? [29 Dec 2004|10:27am]
[ mood | heavily caffinated ]

I have a car now. It's very ugly and isn't safe at all but its a car and its mine.

I also have a kitty who is awesome. His name is Pepito and he likes empty newport boxes.

Christmas was good. I got things like books and Candy Land which is now the scariest and most sexual childrens game ever. They re designed the game so the candy cane man now has a really spooky gopher side kick and the whole game is just disturbing. They have gingerbread men bent over licking things...

I've been drinking way too much coffee lately and abusing the whole TV series on DVD thing and have watched way too much sappy lady television.

Mike and I went on a road trip yesterday to go some place NEW and EXCITING. We ended up in Waterbury at some hotdog place that had the weirdest decorations. So we ate. And went out side. And both felt the "best hotdog in new england" wanting to come back. So we went home and I fell asleep.

Nothing is that exciting. Just the same old stuff. But it's good old stuff

I'm a christmas Machine.
I have all of my family and Mike's gifts purchased and in the mail or wrapped. I'm so excited. I usually run around at the last minute and get stupid things like toasters as gifts that seemed like good ideas at first. But this year everyone has things that are GOOD and make sense and are useful and arn't kitchen appliances.

I love Christmas
I love my Alyssa and Jess
I'm starting to almost maybe love all of my family
And I love my Bo because he's the best.

I've finally realized why people/books always tell you to surround yourself with good people. It's because it makes you happy and care free and fully willing to be swept away and enjoy life.

I love Jess and Alyssa because no matter what they can make me laugh. And no matter how long we sit in silence, we can always come back to each other and laugh again. I have way too much fun with them, and I love them.

I love Mike because he is amazing, and makes me feel like I might be too. There's nothing like a huge bear hung and a nap on a bad day and laying around in bed for hours at a time. <3<3<3

I love my mom because she is a nut. She drinks way too much Diet Vanilla Pepsi and she's hopped up on fake sugar all the time. And she's good at Jeopardy.

Marc Tylinski is one of my new favorite people too...he makes me laugh.

So as of today, life is good. It's raining but in here life in beautiful.

it's good [23 Oct 2004|01:39pm]
[ mood | mellow ]

Went to see the Gurdge last night with Jess and the Bo. Fukcing freaky movie. Me and Jess were flipping out, and Mike just made fun of us. I seriously hope my house isn't cursed...

then we went to the Space to see Drawninward and of corse we missed them, but it was all good. Hung out in the parking lot for a while then went to Damon's for the chicken finger trivia fun. Saw Sam, which was a nice suprise. I hadn't seen him in like 2 years. Then we went back to my house and watched a movie...I fell asleep in about 10 minutes.

Today I clean like a fool. My floor looks nice. its been so long since ive seen it. tooka shower and got fancy for tea with the mims soon. Me Mike Rachel howe and Jen are going out for chinese food tonight. should be good times.

Life is good, school is good. I'm cranking out pottery at rapid fire pace. All is well in the world.

4 is a wonderful number <3<3<3
