Over 1000 views... I am quite simply full of elation :]

Isha tagged me in this 25 things, um, thing, a while ago but I never got the time to do it. Well, since everyone knows for certain that we're going to have a snow day tomorrow and I have absolutely NOTHING to do, I was finally able to think up 25 things about myself.

25 things

1. I often feel that even my friends don't understand me. But I guess that's OK, because at least I have friends.
2. I crack my knuckles ALL the time. I know for a fact that it annoys people quite a bit.
3. I like going on adventures with new people... the newer the place and the newer the person, the better.
4. I wish I could talk to him... or even better yet, I wish he'd talk to me first.
3. I am not particularly fond of liars, even though I am one myself... I'm trying not to be, but it's just so much easier than telling the truth. Not to mention, it absolutely disgusts me when I can tell that people are lying. I can tell when people are lying, and just about everyone is really bad at it (including me).
4. My parents and friends think I sleep a lot because I'm lazy; I know I sleep a lot because my dreams are far better than my reality (even the nightmares, because they're only temporary).
5. All I want to do is have fun and be happy. That's all.
6. I know that I will regret not doing things, but for some reason I still can't bring myself to do them. Time is running out.
7. I like to be alone.
8. I think I'm almost comfortable with myself. With everything about myself, too. My artistic ability, my body, my personality, my music taste. I'm starting to not mind it, if not like it.
9. I have decided that when I grow up, I want to do creative writing and graphic design. That would be my dream.
10. Some days all I want to do is kill myself, but when I notice that I haven't yet even though I have the total ability to do so, I realize that I really don't. If that makes sense.
11. I hate people without really knowing them. Same thing goes for me respecting people without really knowing them. Like, if I don't know much about a person to begin with, they can pretty easily lose my respect if they have bad grammar.
12. I secretly have a fetish for the Camp Rock soundtrack. That's probably one of the most pathetic things I've ever said in my life.
13. I don't really hold grudges, and I understand that people can change. I just pretend to so I can have something to complain about.
14. My favorite physical features about myself are this freckle/mole on the side of my torso and my green eyes. I'm secretly waiting for someone else besides myself to notice them.
15. I can be very bossy when given authority. I can also be that quiet person that sits off to the side and doesn't contribute at all.
16. I embarrass myself daily.
17. I say things like, "cool beans" and "I don't know how I feel about this" and "I dare you to enlighten me" (when people know about something I don't).
18. My mom thinks I'm anorexic. I swear to God, I'm not.
19. Speaking of God, I haven't been sure about what I believe lately. I want to believe in something, but it just feels wrong for me to believe in God and Jesus and all that just because my parents do. I don't think I should have to try to believe in something, and it should just come naturally.
20. I don't worry much. I'm a pretty chill person.
21. I like trying new things, particularly new foods. I like to keep things interesting like that.
22. Sometimes I don't listen to songs I really like that much because I'm afraid that I'll get sick of them.
23. I like learning new words so I feel smart when I use them in conversations (note: word of the day - arcanum).
24. I'm a pretty lucky person. Not just lucky in the sense that I was born into one of the wealthiest counties in the country (even though my family isn't particularly wealthy) or that I have parents that love me and all that. I've had some pretty lucky things happen to me, like getting VIP passes randomly at an All Time Low concert, or finding money on the ground.
25. I'm a pretty loving person. I'm a philophile. All you need to do is express your love towards me, and I shall forever envelope you in my adoration. :]

So, I'd like to tag in this anyone who reads this... I really want to learn more about everyone (so please don't hesitate to post your 25 things), and I think that this is a cool way to do so. You might even learn a thing or two about yourself.

A Tribute

"I'll be your sunset if you'll be my silhouette"
- A Rocket to the Moon

Why are my friends so damn cute?

Yep, that's me :]

"Walking on the beach just holding your hand
Pushing our feet into the sand
Do it again I'll lock it tightly
Givin' you lovin' nightly
Faces of the Saturn people
Keep it comin' evil
I've been missin' you again"
-Sparks the Rescue

"Think back to the summertime
I would cross through these state lines
you were always on my mind"

Sparks the Rescue - "Autumn"


Today was a surprise snowday. I like snowdays.

"Can you see me in the sky?
ⓟⓐⓣⓒⓗⓦⓞⓡⓚ clouds and ⓝⓔⓞⓝ signs"

The Ready Set - "Unender"


Wednesday, February 17, 2010

For her thirteenth birthday, a young girl received a plant from her father as a gift. It was a wonderful plant; its stems tangled and twisted every which way and very small buds at the tip of a few of the stems suggested the soon-to-be blooming of a flower. Its delicate, waxy leaves glimmered in the summer sunlight and were the color of her father’s glistening eyes as he excitedly told her that receiving this plant was a rite of passage. “It’s your responsibility and no one else’s,” he whispered to her as if saying it in a normal tone of voice would shatter one of the plant’s emerald leaves to pieces. She nodded quickly, grabbing her beloved plant by the stem as clusters of dirt rolled to the ground.
Later that day as the girl searched for the perfect place to plant it, she vowed to herself to care for her plant as if it was her own child—and in the beginning, she did. She returned to the plant each and every day to water it and pluck out any weeds that threatened to choke it; taking care of it was hardly a hassle. The girl felt a great sense of pride one day as she noticed pink flowers beginning to poke out from their small green shells on the tips of the plant’s stems.
However, it wasn’t too long before the plant became a more of a burden than a simple task. And not long after that it went from being a burden to being a hassle. Its tangled branches grew rapidly and the plant was soon larger than the girl was. The weeds surrounding it seemed to multiply by the thousands and carrying the necessary amount of water to the huge plant was just too much for the girl’s strength to allow.
The small amount of neglect from the girl seemed to be slowly killing the plant. Its once beautiful green leaves began to wilt and its fragrant pink flowers turned to brown. And one day it became too much for the girl to handle. She could no longer weed the ground around the plant with care and she could no longer water it with ease. She stopped caring for the plant all together and never returned to it. If she had only cared for the plant just a little bit longer, she would have been able to see the wonderful fruit that the plant bore for those who were persistent. They would have been the plumpest, most beautiful fruits, too.

[Metaphor I wrote for English class-- I think I worried my English teacher a little.]

Hot Chip - "Take It In"

"Sometimes, I get the feeling that I'm
stranded in the wrong time
Where love is just a lyric in a children's rhyme"

Hi people,

Well, I feel like I haven't really written a legit blog post in a while to just, you know, vent.

Well, it's Valentine's Day (or it was... I think it's past midnight now). Or Valentime's Day, as Junie B. Jones would call it. And yes, I'm single and yes, I have developed a certain attraction to a boy-- well, by complete accident. I don't like "liking" certain boys, and I've learned that it's never really worth it. So that's why I became surprised whenever I got butterflies when I passed him in the hallway, and found myself instinctively looking at my feet as he walked past. Oh well.

So instead of mustering up the courage to actually talk to him ,I remained single for this Valentine's Day. I don't really mind, though. I spent all of today with my family, and all of yesterday with my close group of friends. I saw Valentine's Day yesterday (you know, that movie that they managed to get a billion famous people in), and it was pretty cute. I really liked how each person's story connected in some way. I like stuff like that where I get to make connections, which is probably why I get so excited reading books for English class. Now, this movie wasn't particularly sad. I mean, not Dear John sad, but I didn't even cry during that movie. Me and my friend wound up laughing at everyone else in the move theater sniffling and wiping their watery eyes while we also listened to the girls behind us talk about how one of their friends "did it without protection!"

Okay, back onto the subject. After Valentine's Day was over and we began to walk out of the movie theater, I saw an elderly woman who was still sitting in her seat, wiping her eyes with her tiny, shaking hands. I immediately imagined her being reminded of a long lost love, and that absolutely killed me.

Oh dear, I thought I had more to vent about. Well, I suppose that's all...

Good night :]

Les rêves peuvent devenir réalité...

I don't even know you,
but that's just the point.
Your mere existence
is the fine line between
what never was
and what isn't
and what could be.
The time ticking by
is taunting me.
Its slowness is my excuse
but soon that won't be enough.

This Condition - "Red Letter"

(This song is amazing. I saw these guys at the Jingle My Bells Festival in December, and there were CDs for sale at one of the merch tables. I actually stole one by complete mistake, because I thought they were free. >< But it worked out for the best, I suppose, because I got to hear this wonderful song, and I probably wouldn't have otherwise.)

Just carry on

"watching the waves crashing beneath me,
blue and silver, chaotic and serene
and I can’t describe the view from up here,
because maybe I won’t be able to tell you what I see
don’t waste your tears on me"

I really like these lyrics, and I just wanted to let you guys know that I'm still here-- even though you probably weren't wondering. I have a lot I'd like to write about, but I really don't have the time. I'm avoiding homework as I type. Oh well.

Peace, love, and puppies, my lovelies.

The Swellers - "Feet First"

[I couldn't find a video of the song anywhere, but you could check out the band's Myspace (link above). "2009" is a pretty awesome song, too (which actually is on their myspace)... pretty ill band :D]
