Do It Like You Do It To Me

You know we're such big nerds when you talk to the guy you're dating… about sex… scientifically.


The Reason

2007-09-03 02:36

Last night I was listening to the radio and this retarded song came on: “The Reason” by Hoobastank. Back in my high school days oh so long ago I heard it and was disgusted. Now, I hear it and suddenly it's in my head for the rest of the night. I even bought the song just 'cause it was just THERE. Here's the lyrics.

Songs, music, melodies are influential. I change moods easily when I hear songs. I do some sort of instant reflection, and BAM I'm all emo.

I was about to go into this tirade of how songs like these mark some turning point in my life, but unless I'm some sort of Harry Truman and my life has been planned out, I really shouldn't focus on it, right? But pre-breakup was a bunch of sad songs, or songs of renewal. During dating, there was this one song about how I'd love music more than the relationship. A whole lotta coincidences with a lot of the music in my life.

Except I'm not saying goodbye. (In reference to the lyrics)

edit I do need to leave here, though.


Working Class

2007-09-01 06:13

I've got a job for about 3 weeks. It's what I need, to pay off debt before school starts.

I need a job to get out of this place. Those who know me know what I'm really talking about. sigh

I mean Carpe Diem!

Attempted asskicking + nerdy browsing of Circuit City/Best Buy + Stardust + Mexican food + random cruising + Parks + SWINGS! = the coolest welcome home gift ever, Mr. You-Know-Who-You-Are! Sorry I headbutted you.

I'm thinking yeah, man, days like that are awesome. Too bad I'm like Cinderella and have a time limit. Otherwise, I'd be out there stargazing too.

Need more Rabbit in the Moon.

Stardust was amazing. One thing that surprised me was Neil Gaiman had his hands on that! But like all NG stuff, it was well executed. The whole amazing romance in 7 days bothers me, but if NG writes that a star can fall in love in 7 days (even though she's been a stalker all her life), I guess people want it to be possible.

I'd take my time with that sort of thing.

Tired. Running in the morning. Job interview.

Meeting up with DH again! sigh Girl's got time this time. Gotta utilize that.

edit Oy!


Say It Right

2007-08-27 08:40

Oh, music, how can I live without you? I seriously think today is another example of God trying to tell me that there's no use in moping. If you're proactive, you can find jobs that sound even better. If you call back, you can reschedule. _

I'm good for destroying Irvine tomorrow with J! I mean, we're going to tear up the town. I mean, we're going to have fun. :up:

I'm feeling much less emo.


Music can't save me now

“When I don't know what I'm looking for,
when I don't know what I'm living for…”

“Your world doesn't match with mine,
I've got to get over I've got to forget…”

It wasn't like that a day ago, but I

“woke up this morning,
The world turned upside down”

I'll stop doing that. I just have a lot of songs I know of, and sometimes it's flattering to know I do have that. But sometimes, like today, I don't know what I have near me. Everyone I love, or want to love, seems so far away.

And of course, it figures that TODAY I'd be called back for a job interview that they've schedule for TOMORROW. When I've planned to meet someone I haven't seen in a while. _ We'll see what happens.

My entire body hurts. Well, mostly my shoulders. I went outside to jog yesterday morning and went to the gym with my mom (at worst I'll end up like her, and that's fantastic because she doesn't look terrible). And I did some housework the day before.

This is bad, coming back from just walking around Europe (most I managed to do was run after departing buses, whoops. Oh, and the FUCKING STAIRS EVERYWHERE THANKS). Being a tourist is easy.

Trying to get back into shape isn't. Ow. Except apparently after 2 days I look better. I don't know, maybe it's because of less tourist food. Even though my grandmother tries to prep us for future artery clogs, but I think she means well.

And suddenly I'm an early riser.

I definitely need to get back in shape. Maybe this will be the time when I can go jogging around without anyone else seeing just how poorly my form is for running.

And then time for yoga! It's one of the greatest things in the world, as far as I can tell. Rely on your own body weight to gain strength and balance… and now that I think about it, the human body is probably one of the more awkward shapes in the world. J's been telling me about how there's not really an intelligent design, and while he may be right, I think God just has a strange sense of humor.

After all, he made me :)


Home Again, Jiggity Jig

So I'm back in the US of A. And I realize it's not old at all. Rome was founded around 1754 BC.

Reflections later, I'm afraid I've got too little words for too big an event.

But it was awesome and inspiring, I want to go back as soon as possible, and I found out who I don't want to be, who my friends are, what alcohol and drugs can do and why I'll avoid them.

The whole “Physics” thing doesn't register with my mind. But I did pass.

People sans restrictions and with questionable morals are scary.
