What moonsongs

will you sing your babies?

What sunshine will you bring?

Who belongs

Who decides who's crazy

who rights wrongs

where others cling

I'll sing for you,

if you want me to.

I'll give to you

Why am I sad?

Tenacious Fucking D [22 Nov 2006|06:11pm]
[ mood | happy ]

I'm going to go see Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny tonight, and I am so excited! Tenacious D is hysterical. And they're not bad musicians either. =) Love Jack Black.

I get to see Ann on Saturday, too! This weekend's really starting to look up. I'm not terribly excited for Thanksgiving, I've gone vegetarian again so it's not much for me to look foward to, haha. But I suppose it will be nice to see my family. At least, I hope. Some of them do like to tease me, and sometimes it gets a bit obnoxious. Their favorite butt of a joke is making fun of my tattoos. Sigh, whatev.

Anyway, now I'm just waiting for Chris to come and pick me up. He got off work two minutes ago, so he should be here fairly soon. I forget if he's working at my store or his today.

But point is I'm bored.
So I'll post some pictures.
As if anyone who might read this doesn't look at Myspace, but just in case.

To be awake is to be alive [22 Nov 2006|03:05pm]
[ mood | content ]

It is fascinating how in just a couple short months, something as insignificant as beginning college has completely altered my life as I once knew it.
I love life here, for the most part. It's not perfect, but I will proudly admit that life is good. I feel so fortunate this year.
I really don't have any truly important problems. I don't really get along with my roommate, unless I'm on adderol, and then the conversations just flow without any regard to former dislike for one another. Our inability to get along isn't entirely my fault, but I will admit to some fault for it. I am simply not used to sharing my personal space. I have never had to share a room before. And I am a bit of a control freak as far as my personal living space is concerned, so to have another person able to come into my room, which happens to be just as much her room, is a very difficult transition to become accustomed to. I suppose things could be worse between us. School is expectedly difficult, but I have only had a couple of occasions where I have just felt irrevocably overwhelmed, and I mainly solved these by putting off what was stressing me most. My teachers are all fairly caring and leiniant.

I love living in my dorm, at least during the day, because my room is on the tenth floor, and I get a pretty good view from my window, I can see the river, and Union Terminal, and Beelistic Tattoo, and my favorite- a steel factory across the river that has some sort of tower outside which is constantly shooting out large flames, large enough to be seen all the way across the river, at least. I guess it's just engrossing to notice at night, to look out and see that flame across the river.

Wow, it has been over a month since I've update my this journal. I don't have much free time. My life has become comprised of two very occupying halves. Work/School, and my Social Life. And by social life, I might as well just say Chris. Occasionally John and Lucy. But I spend every spare minute I can with Chris.

Oh yeah, Chris got a promotion last week! He was formerly an assistant manager at my Complete Petmart, store 8, and he was offered a job as an actual Manager, with his own store to run and his own employees to hire and fire and everything. All the power. So now he has his own Complete Petmart in Ft. Wright, Kentucky. I'm indescribably proud of him, he deserves it. He works so hard at his job. And he gets a pretty raise, as well. =)

Other than that, I wish I had more to report. Life is flying by, but I can't exactly complain. My next two weeks are devoted to finals, I'd love for them to fly by as well. Christmas break, my family is taking me on another cruise, I cannot wait.

I'm probably getting a new tattoo this Friday, when I get paid. No, I haven't finished my archangel. I don't mind. I would prefer to have enough money to finish that whole tattoo at once, which is only about an hour and a half to two hours of shading. I'm hoping that I can afford to finance that once I get more work hours in over the break.

But if I do get this tattoo Friday, I try to post a picture.
Maybe next time I'll update sooner than a month from now.
I'm not even sure who I'm still writing to, who still reads these, but oh well. Whoever you are, Happy Thanksgiving. =)

For some reason I want to update [18 Oct 2006|01:29pm]
[ mood | content ]

I rarely check this anymore, and it's sad to see that during my long hiatus I've missed very little. The legacy of livejounal communication is dying out.

My life is wonderful, except I have a papercut on my right ring finger.

It's been cold and rainy recently, but last night I discovered Vanilla Chai tea bags in soy milk make the most comforting and all-over warming drink in the world. And it's quite easy to pocket a few tea packets every time you go to Marketpointe.

College is not at all what I expected to be, but that's a good thing.
Dorm life is wonderful, my mom went to Cappels last weekend and bought me some Halloween decortaions for my room- a strand of pumpkin lights, some bat garland, and Halloween pencils. I found the gesture insanely sweet.
Actually, ever since I've moved out, she's been insanely sweet in general to me.
She's created a new tradtion out of Sunday night dinner, treating it as if every Sunday were a brand new Thanksgiving, and she goes all out and makes a big dinner and dessert and makes my dad and my brother be there and invites Chris and I.

Other than that, I've been trying to go to class as often as possible, none of them are particularly horrible, but I do have a math exam tonight.
I work all weekend, but my scrawny paychecks are making it seem barely worth it, lately.

Oh yeah, I changed my hair again. I can't find my digital camera cord though, so I can't load any pictures for a while.

On November 5, Chris and I will have been together half a year. I can't even begin to describe how happy he makes me. Even his pet cockateil, Avery, is starting to like me, too. He used to scream whenever Chris and I would enter the apartment, but now he'll scream, and the he'll see me, and stick his neck out and make this little coo'ing noise at me. It's adorable.

Anyway, I'm going to go take a nap. That Vanilla Chai I had made me insanely sleepy. ♥
Oh and PS
I'm in love with this song/video.

College Life [20 Sep 2006|09:26am]
[ mood | excited ]

Well I'm officially in college.

I moved into my dorm on Friday. I live on the tenth floor [TENTH!] of Siddall Hall, with my roommate, Christi. [Haha, I almost called her Christ there]. She's fairly nice. We're not exactly friends. The first day I moved in, it became quite apparent that we're rather opposite. She has all-UC Bearcat blankets and pillows... and NO posters or decorations at all, really. The first time I met her when I was moving in, she asked me what kind of music I listened to, and I said rock, alternative, stuff like that. Then she made a face, and went, Oh... And proceeded to tell me she prefers hip-hop and rap. Oh well. She does like to smoke and drink, and from what I've seen the last three nights, goes to many frat parties. I've been invited to all of them but haven't been particularly interested enough to attend.

But I do love my dorm room, my side at least. I have it all decorated, as many posters as I could fit, lava lamps, pictures taped to my wall above my desk, a tv, my stereo [which broke somehow during the move], my very own coffee maker, plus I snuck my gerbils Austin and Eli in, so they're living in their twenty gallon tank which is sittng in the bottom of my wardrobe. They're fine there, plus they're nicely hidden. I'll take some pictures of them sometime soon. They're fucking adorable.

Oh and Chris bought me a little glass vase and two red roses, because he insisted my room needed flowers, so those are on my desk. =] God I love him.

Anyway, I just finished my first class, Psychology 101. It's my earliest class of the day, 8 am, but its something I'm actually interested in, so it works out. And my instructor seems very nice, so I'm pretty excited about that class.

My next class is at 11... Elementary Japanese! Equally excited for that. I did a little bit of ahead-of-time reading on it, the language is awesome. For instance, the word koi, as in a koi-fish, a japanese carp. In english, we pronounce it as a one-syllable word, coy. But in japanese, koi is actually a two-syllable word, koh-ee.

I know, I'm a nerd. But I thought it was interesting.
After Japanese I have Biology 101 at 2, then Algebra 1 at 6:30.

Anyway I'm going to go make myself some more coffee.

What a wonderful caricature of intimacy [30 Aug 2006|02:37pm]
[ mood | happy ]

Oh I know you want to know what's new with me.

Either that, or I'm just satisfying my own desperate self by believing I'm talking to an actual audience.
Oh well, who needs an audience anyhow.

Recently I've developed a new annoying little habit of waking up, for no reason, just before dawn, which is followed by horrible insomnia.
And usually that insomnia leaves me in bed, trying desperately to fall back to sleep, and instead getting myself very worked up over everything in my life I could possibly work up over.

Fortunately, this morning being such way, I texted Lucy, who was awake, and she came to pick me up. It was nice, we went to breakfast, and awakenings, and urban outfitters. She spoils me rotten, which is a rare and wonderful quality in a friend.

Oh, did I ever mention that I bought Sea Monkeys the other day?
They're very funny. And better entertainment than I ever imagined they'd be when I was a kid.

I've also come into owning a toad. Chris caught it for me Sunday, as we were out walking in the rain where he used to live. I put it in my empty Dr. Pepper cup, and now he is living in the ridiculously over-sized 20-gallon aquarium that Charlie used to live in.

I named him Crapaud. [That's french for "toad." Aren't I clever.]

I think soon I will either release him or give him to Lucy, though, because I've decided on a pet I want more that could use the space in that cage a little more apporpriately. And they're cuter.

I'm getting another tattoo this weekend too.
But those last two aforementioned subjects will be elaborated on once I actually spend the money on them.

Other than that...

I don't really have much more to tell.

I don't start college until September 20th.
I move in sometime the week before, though. My roommate's name is Christina, I still haven't talked to her once, I'll be living in Siddal hall, on the tenth floor, I think. Yay, heights.

I'm scared for it.
But I have two classes to look foward to. Japanese, and psychology.
Random, yet interesting.

Confession of the Day:
I've started liking Panic! At the Disco.
[Panic! At the Gay Bar]
I think their lyrics are wonderful.

I bought two new books today. The Moons of Jupiter and The Universe and Beyond. Both have absolutely amazing pictures and lots of great information. I'm in love.

Oh yeah, and Tenacious D has a new movie coming out. I need to see that, as well as Clerks 2, Fearless, The Prestige, and Accepted. In that order of importance =]

Chris tried to teach me the "50 Nifty United States" song in the car today. I quickly realized that that song's damn near impossible to memorize, and I kept inserting Arizona whenever I forgot what came next. But I did manage to memorize up to Connecticut.

I also took Squiffy to the vet today, due to her recent bouts of incessant sneezing, and her little feast last week on a baby bunny. She's fine, just a little viral disease, but I have never in my life heard a cat make so much noise as Squiffy did when the vet was taking a blood sample. It sounded like an infant crying.

Other than that, not much is new.
Can't wait until Friday to get paid, I need to pay Chris back $30 for the latter Astronomy book, and I want to buy a new tongue ring and a few cds... the new Muse, Tool, and of course, a Tenacious D cd. =]

Gotta call Chris back now though. Good night, love you. ♥

Well, I don't really know if anyone still reads ol' LJ anymore, but I still have a strange desire to update.

It seems that everyone I was once close to is now drifting off into their own lives, two of my very good friends leave shortly for college and another very good friend I have not heard from in a long time.

It's been an incredibly... chaotic and eventful summer, to say the least. I've been spending as much time as possible with Chris, we mostly hang out at his apartment and watch movies and drink =]

I still havent gotten my tattoo finished, not so much from lack of courage, just lack of funding.

This is what I've got so far...Collapse )

A couple weeks ago I went out and got my tongue pierced with Dianna. She got her lip pierced. It was incredibly fun.
The healing process sucked the most out of any piercing I've ever gotten, but it turned out to be worth it.

I love itCollapse )

But anyway, now I must cut this long and impulsive update short, because I need to get ready for work.

I hope everyone's well.
Love you all. ♥

Although I'm selfish to a fault, is it selfish it's you I want? [09 Jun 2006|01:23am]
[ mood | sleepy ]

So tired...

Finally figured out how to hook my laptop up to the internet. Dad and I are back on speaking terms since our last dinner date was postponed due to fighting. We're cool again though, and I know he's relieved about the decsion I've made, which really makes me happy, actually, because I love my dad immensely.

My tattoo itches like crazy tonight. I need to put some more salve on it before I go to bed.
Still can't find the battery charger for my digital camera, so still no pictures.

Realized last night that I think my lungs have officially started a rebellion against my smoking habits, which were up to nearly a pack a day, I'm afraid. I've developed a very strange habit of getting a disgusting taste in my mouth from my cigarettes, and followed by a bad stomach ache afterward.

But, I've found a way around it , by switching from Camel Turkish Silvers back to Djarum Black cloves again. And now every part of me wins... I get to smoke, and my body can't develop a bad taste because they taste so damn good; not to mention I'm cutting back my daily intake because they're stronger and burn about 15 minutes longer. Today I think I only had like, 5 cigarettes in all. Perhaps less.

It's officially been one week that I've been 18.

Only one more week until I get to go back and have my second session to finish my tattoo.

Chris had my own key to his apartment made for me today. =] It's one of those cute decorated kinds too, it's tye-dye, hehe.

I've decided tonight to stop making my entries friends only.

So congrats to all those creepy stalker non-friends out there, you now can read my journal!
God this has gone on too long again. Goodnight.

"Excuse me ma'am, but the kitty took my glasses and won't give them back..." [13 Jul 2005|02:01pm]
[ mood | excited ]

So yay, seeing Eric again was fun.
We went to Petland, Smoothie King, Scallywag Tag, and the bowling alley yesterday. Funnn. Eric beat me horribly in laser tag and bowling. He got first place in laser tag, haha. And over 100 in bowling both times, while I kept averaging like 50. I suck at bowling.

So anyway we went to Petland to look at bunnies. Cuz we're cool like that. Then we saw that there was only one kitten in the store so we were playing with it. Eric had his head up by the bars of the kitten's cage [cage, sad I know] and he christened it Phillip. Then "Phillip" started batting at his glasses and next thing we knew it had pulled them off and into its cage and was chewing on them. It was the funniest thing I have ever seen in my life. We couldnt fit our hands in the cage to get the glasses back, either, and the pet store lady had to go and get them out for him.
The she was petting the kitten and talking to us about it and we realized Phillip is definately a girl. I had my suspicions. So Eric was like, uhh sorry to call you Phillip... uhh... Phyllis...

So of course we had to go back this morning before Eric left and visit her. She likes shiny things. And I feel so bad for her because she's the only kitten in the whole store, and her cage is right above all the mice, which must drive her crazy. Especially since two of the dwarf hamsters below her keep fighting.

I'm very against buying pets from Pet shops, usually. I think it's better to go to a pound or someplace like that, pet shops just seem so inhumane to me. But I'm in love wit this fucking kitten. So Eric and I are adopting it. She's pretty expensive so we have to wait until we get paid but we're splitting the cost and I'm getting her as soon as I can. I even called Petland and asked if I had to be a certain age to adopt her, and they said 17 was alright. I asked if they could put her on hold but they cant unless I pay half down. I explained I was waiting until Tuesday just to get some money, and I was just kinda like, "Okay, well try not to sell her then I guess..."

So if all goes well I'll get her once I get paid. Eric will pay me half next time I see him, and I'm not even asking my parents. I'm just gonna hide her in my room, haha. My brother said he'd watch her when I go to work.
I'm thinking I'll call her Loki. Loki Phyllis. Eric wants her to just be Phyllis but thats so old lady so I might make that her middle name, hehe.
God I'm such a dork.

Yeah well this is her =D

Her and her glasses fetish. She tried pulling them off again ths morning. I'm in love!

Cross your fingers that she won't get adopted, I might cry.

I definately failed my history exam today. I guessed on about... 75% of it.

I'm supposed to be studying for algebra and french now. I dont even have my french book. I'll study for algebra later.

I had a pretty good birthday considering my exams were today. Only four more to get through!

Then next tuesday- I shall be OUT of the country for two whole weeks. I can't freaking wait.

AH my Mi Ah Hee song is skipping on my cd! How is it already doing that?

Well anyway there's nothing much more to say. Anyone of any importance to me already knows what is occupying the extent of my mind today. No need to talk about it more.

I think I'm going to make my journal friends only from here out. Any major objections?

No one can hear you when you drown [26 May 2005|09:41pm]
[ mood | blah ]

It's been a while since I've actually sat down and actually written a full live journal entry.
Where to begin.

My mind is overcome right now with stress from stupid exams and school. I have to revise my Great Gatsby paper because I got a D on it, and it's due tomorrow. I think I'm only going to do a very poor revision. I mean, it's not like I can lose points. If I dont do it at all I'll lose 15 though, which would probably bring my teetering C right back to a D again. Then I'd actually have to worry about my exam for english, which, coincidentally, is on my birthday.

Thank God school is nearly over. My brain cant handle much more of this. I think if it werent for adderol I would have had a breakdown by now.

Anyway. Today I went to Eastgate Mall with John, that was pretty fun. We dont hang out much anymore so it was nice to see him again. I was broke, but it was still fun. Oh and I found a shirt that I'm going to make my mom buy me this weekend, its so freaking cute. You'll see.
But anyway John's taste in music is evolving! I'm so proud. He likes Moby! That made me happy, not many people appreciate Moby but he really does. I'm going to burn him a mix of Moby cd's as long as he burns Moby's new cd for me.

So anyway then I had to have him drive me up to Anderson for a meeting about going to France. I somehow managed to lose my class ring AGAIN when I was walking in, but thankfully I found it laying on the ground in the parking lot when I got out of the meeting.

Sooo the meeting was pretty cool, Ms. Nordsieck always drags them on soooo long, but I got a brand new EF Tours backpack, and now I'm even more excited to go to France. But my parents wont let me drink during lunch when I'm there. Because technically I could. But also technically I cant, because the company we're traveling with, EF Tours, enforces US rules in France, so you still have to be 21 while traveling with them to drink. But the drinking age in France is like, 16. Not that its a big deal.

I'm so mentally tired. It's like I'm just completely drained. I won't be able to sleep tonight, I know already. Which might be beneficial, since I'm still procrastinating from my English revision. I think part of this tiredness is adderol provoked. I'm crashing now. For those who dont know, I've only started taking it again this week. I'm not like, addicted to it. It's too expensive for me to be. But it is really helping me get through the school days, and in a good mood too. Wish I could get my own prescription.

What else. My Great Uncle Tom is in the hospital. Apparently he fell down a flight of stairs and now he's pretty much just going continuously downhill. He's not going to make it. Mom said he's got like, internal bleeding near his brain. It's really sad.

At least I have some things to be optimistic about to keep me happy. My birthday is June 1st, and I'm leaving for France 5 days later.

Oh and Eric's coming back to Cinci on the 30th and 31st. I'm so excited. Last time he was here was the beginning of January, so it's been... 5 months since the last time I've seen him.

I need to go do my homework.

Soooo everyone is at prom right now.
I just got off work. I didnt feel like going to prom, too expensive and no date.

So I just drove past afterprom on the way home, and omg it look so cool! It's all lit up and decorated to a huge extent and I didnt even go in but it looks like its going to be incredibly awesome, I cannot wait until 1 so I can go!

I was planning on trying to get some sleep between now and about 12:30, but honestly I doubt I'd be able to sleep. David and Kyle are lighting off fireworks in the backyard for one thing, and plus I'm just too freaking excited. Its not too often I stay up until 5:30 am to party at school.

I stopped at Kroger and bought two Full Throttle energy drinks so hopefully I wont pass out from exhaustion or anything tonight, haha.

Ginger is cowering in the tiny space under the desk by my legs because she's terrified of fireworks. She just crawled out... but oh wait she paced around the room and she's back under. She's panting on my leg... this is uncomfortable.

Hmmm what else.
I dont know... nothing else to say... guess I'll go watch tv or something. Only downside to all this is I have to miss Cowboy Bebop tonight =/

It's going to be a long night ♥
