I don't even know why I post here, considering I only have it to keep in touch with a few people. :] But whatever, I'm bored.
Anyway, last night I went to sleep at a friend of mine's house. She'd had 4 people over as a late birthday thing. Needless to say we had a blast.
We started watching Monty Python, but ended up watching Party Monster, which is a kickass movie and a book I will soon be reading. Then stayed up till around five, for some reason woke up at around 8, eventually went home and slept for 4 hours.
Have tickets and rides to two concerts this summer!
And, I want to go to Austin City Limits more than anything this year. Of course, it's in September, so I'll have to try and convince somebody.
Whatever. School is OUT! Fair is in! But I'm missing it, don't ask, plans got cancelled.
Today was pretty uneventful. I visited my baby cousins (2 and 1) and they're as cute as ever. Then I just hung around the house, played guitar, piano, watched TV, etc. Hope your day was more fun than mine! Comments (1) |

So, Friday was a blast.
The play was hilarious, and I really love the AA. Everything about it. It's a real sense of belonging. And it's too much art to go around.
But, on Saturday morning my parents woke me up. My aunt died of lung cancer. They found it about a month ago, and it was too late to do much about it. Becky, Momo, whatever, IT WAS SO LATE FOR HER! DON'T GET DISCOURAGED!
Anyway, I didn't know here well, but I really love my uncle. I don't even know HIM well, but hes the sweetest man... seeing him like that.. wow.
Anyway, after that news I had to spend my Saturday building a 200 point project.
Sunday, I woke up, went to another aunt's house for mothers day, came home and did a ton of homework, and then went to the funeral home.
I cried a lot this weekend, but I think I'm gradually getting better. But wow, death scares the hell out of me. And it didn't help that my uncle was telling my parents to make funeral plans right in front of my face.
It's all so.. terrifying.
My uncle looked like a walking stick. He must have lost like... 30 pounds.
My sister's friend didn't win survivor. But it's still awesome that he made it so far. Anyway, we're going to this party he'll be at, so I'll get to ask all about the reality of reality TV shows.
Donnie Darko is a kickass movie. It made me forget about the crappy weekend.
Anyway, good night. I don't feel like talking much right now. Have a nice week, people. Comments (0) |

I'm happier now. :]
Stephen Lynch has raised my moods.
I'm still a bit pissed at dad. But whatever. It isn't a big deal, and it just takes a while to get over the insult and accept it. Eventhoughimrightandheswrongitdoesntmattersojustscrewit.
It's just school. And it's almost over.
So, I probably AM going to Projekt Revolution.
And I'm STILL going to 311.
And you know, Linkin Park is a bit lame, but they tour with some cool bands. COME ON! PUT MINDLESS SELF INDULGENCE ON THE MAIN STAGE! They deserve proper stage time. And wtf? Why was Billy Talent all of a sudden cut?
Whatever. I'm happy. Thank youuuuu Stephen Lynch.
It's alright, I've got a right to rant and be pissed off. It's a blog.
So yeah, I've got this really lame project due in a week. It's actually a wonder I started working on it now instead of the night before.
Anyway, you've got to build a rube goldberg type of thing. It's got to have chemical kinetic eletrical energy blablabla yadayadayada.
Well, I asked my dad for help with coming up with a chemical/electrical something or other. Which he helped greatly with btw.
He also took over the whole freaking thing. Which wouldn't be a problem if I hadn't worked so goddamn hard on it. It's not so much that, but this. I had this whole design planned out, it was simple, cheap, and could be tested easily. I won't lie, he helped a lot with it. But I was actually really proud with my ideas and how they'd work out, which is a shock for me I know, especially since it has to do with school.
Anyway, still proud of my design, I come to talk to a friend of mine to work out some plans for the summer. (I'll tell more in a minute) Then dad calls me into the room, and has this design he'd come up with for part of it, that I actually thought would work well and didn't have a problem doing it. But I asked something like
"Well, here what could I use? It seems like what I came up with would be easier." It was some sort of bracket he wanted to build. (He builds stuff, it's his hobby.) So, he opens the pad he's drawing in to a blank sheet, holds it in front of me, and says "What's on this paper is what you came up with."
I just left. WTF? I came up with the whole thing! It's not my fault he took over MY project that was easier to build and more likely to be accepted by my teachers as something I might actually come up with? Honestly! I'd worked really hard on this thing and he blew it off like it was nothing. Maybe it's not even worth getting emotional over.
Oh, and the fact that he just walked in and gave a goodnight kiss on the forehead makes me feel a LOT better.
I mean, I guess he sensed he hurt my feelings and feels guilty. Considering he never does that. But I'm still pissed at him, but makes me pissed at myself because he really doesn't deserve it. I know he's just trying to help, but I worked really hard on this, and shouldn't have been told I'd done nothing.
I know he didn't mean anything by it. But seriously, so what if I'm not a mechanical engineer. I actually think this thing might have been A-worthy. And I'm pissed that he'd blow off everything I'd done like that. I mean, considering I'd designed most of the damned thing.
Anyway, now that it's out of my system.
There is SOME good news. Also some bad news.
Projekt Revolution dates are lame. I was hoping for Houston, and by some miracle maybe New Orleans.
I MIGHT be able to make the Dallas show considering my friends mom wants to see Linkin Park. Honestly, I just want to see Mindless Self Indulgence. Maybe Placebo and My Chemical Romance.
But I'm DEFINATELY going to see 311 and Matisyahu with him this summer. (Plans I'd mentioned before)

Psh, it's been a month.
Hah. Okay, well anyway. Quick update.
The concert was GREAT. For the first three bands we were almost at the barricade. The openers were the Howling Bells, and believe it or not they were the best out of all seven of the artists.
The festival was last weekend. It's this huge thing with a bunch of international bands, artists, painters, etc. They also had the world's largest boot, which was strange.
I saw musicians from Africa (which is becoming cooler and cooler in my eyes every day), Jamaica, US, etc. I missed most of the bands I wanted to see because of a play, but whatever.
And the Projekt Revolution tour dates are announced on Monday. Personally, I could care less about Linkin Park. But Mindless Self Indulgence, Placebo, and Saosin are on the tour (I honestly don't listen to Saosin much, but they were great live) so I CAN'T miss it. I mean, it's MSI! Come on!
My computer has been down all week, sorry about that.
Happy late Easter.
Yesterday my cousin came over with this HUGE box of CD's. He said it was his old collection, he no longer listened to them, and it was either me or charity.
Seriously guys.... like 200 CDS.
Half of them wer just empty cases though. Of course he's teasing me with empty violent femmes cases.
Anyway, I still have a hundred or so new CDs that I can't get enough of.
Yeah for creepy movies from the 70s!
Deliverance is playing on AMC on Saturday night.
You should all watch it. :]
I also need to watch a Clockwork Orange.. it's been forever. Or maybe I'll jut read the book. One of the two.
Today, I walked into my Spanish class when my teacher says
"Alllriiight so who knows what we're doing today?" and some guy goes
"Sleeping." and He was like
"Okay.." and turned out the lights.
Then.. we.. slept. It was really wierd, but I'm not complaining. I just hope there's no catch.
He's a cool teacher, so I doubt there is.
Lately, I've been having these killer headaches. Seriously, if you've ever experienced pain that just made you want to die.. it was that bad.
So I ended up going to a doctor, who commanded an MRI be done. It came up perfectly normal.
Then I had to get an eye examination.
They think that might have something to do with it, but it's probably a severe a-typical migraine.
Yeah, I don't get it either. If it's a migraine, it's REALLY a-typical.
There was this girl who went to see a movie, didn't like it, and so she snuck out of it to go watch 300. 300 was packed, so she stood, all the while chatting rather loudly on her phone.
So after the movie, this guy ran up to her, screamed "This is Sparta!" and kicked her down the stairs.
I heard she's filing a suit against the theatre since they couldn't find the guy. xP
Completely true. Somebody got it on their phone, but I've yet to see the video.
If you don't know what I'm talking about.. here.
That's about all that's going on in my life. So, I'll catch up with you guys later on. I'm sleepy.
G'night. Comments (1) |

This week is state testing.
It's always such a long week.
I'm counting down the days of the concert. JUST ONE MONTH! Yes!
In other news, yesterday I went to see 300. It's a GORGEOUS film. Despite the gore every 2 seconds, it's absolutely beautiful. From the visuals, to the lines, to the actual battle plans, it's great.
This weekend my favorite teacher's band is playing, so obviously.. I'm going. He's awesome.
So I'm FINALLY about to finish Dream Brother. It's an amazing book if you haven't read it.
A biography of Jeff and Tim Buckley. I just finished the death chapters.. and it was really depressing. Almost surreal actually. By the time you finish you just feel like you know them, and the death hits you that much harder.
My painting is finally finished.
And I'm actually happy with it. How the hell did that happen?
Anyway, I just realized something.
I'm REALLY going to miss the AA over the summer. I mean, just the whole atmosphere. I don't know if anybody even remembers what I'm talking about, but whatever.
Anyway, in AA we were trying to come up with titles for the upcoming gallery. Somebody opened an old ArtNEWS and shouted "FLASH OF FLESH!" and our teacher immediately said "Too much of a porno title."
I totally bombed a Physical Science test today.
What a horrible subject.
Tomorrow is Fridayyyy. Weeeehewwwww.
We also finish our self-portaits tomorrow.
Tomorrow is also an A day, yay!
