Not All Who Wander Are Lost...

I'm participating in CED, Creative Everyday challenge, I'm excited pumped and ready. The theme for this month is "body" which is just so perfect on so many levels for me. Not saying anything about how often I'll post because I know I won't stick to it. Basically, count on me sharing if I remember to post my work/want to enough. I'm going to make-over my blog as well, and I'm going to make my music ninja a death metal ninja.

Last week I brought a little pocket moleskin notebook, in it I record poems, thoughts, sketches, and anything else that pops into my dreamy crazy purple head. (Yes, I did dye my hair purple it was fun and I love it). Just a streak, not the whole thing. I recently discovered that by the Myers Briggs personality thingy I'm an INFP, which basically means I'm peace-loving, gentle, calm, idealistic, and dreamy. This explains why I loose everything I own. Apparently we only make up 1% of the world population, so basically I'm a freak; what else is new?

I'm off to go create and live in worlds far away from here, I think you should go make something too. But don't wander too far <3

Taken All My Pills, But I'm Still Not Sleepy.

It's 3 AM. I can't sleep. I liked the postsecrets this week. I don't want to go to school anymore. I'm tired of putting up with bullshit. Alex Supertramp and I would have been buds. I hate civilization, and society, and people. I would be happier living my life instead of sleepwalking through it; treading on this beaten down path almost everyone follows.

Fuck conformity, I want to make an impact.

Everywhere I Seem To Be I Am Only Passing Through

Life isn't treating me well. Things that are helping me get through it:
- Godspeed You! Black Emperor, single greatest group I've heard in a while, I'm a big fan.
- My teddy bear.
- Elliott Smith
- My gray beanie
- Attempting to teach myself new things on guitar/learning new songs

The purple hair has yet to happen, but I'm reluctant to spend money and I'm scared I'm going to fuck my hair up. Unrelated, I love David Foster Wallace and I wish I could have seen him speak before he died.

I Forgot the Start, Use my Hands to Use my Heart.

I haven't written here in ages. In reality, it took me a very long time to come up with the longer blog posts, so I've decided to make them shorter. I think it's a more accurate representation of my personality, I tend to be sort of laconic most of the time.

Things happening:
  • I'm participating in NaNoWriMo, yay me. It should be an interesting journey, my username is knittedbluehat.
  • I've come to the realization that I can't learn anything without listening closely enough. I'm debating on weather I should take a vow of silence to prove my point. Also I feel like if I took a vow of silence it might bring across the point to some that millions of people in the world are stripped of their voice. So why should I not give up mine in their honor?
  • I might dye my hair purple. This is up in the air, I don't know if I have the guts/resources/money to do it but I'll let you know how it goes. Not my whole head, but maybe a few streaks... Maybe my whole head, I don't know. I have decision making problems.
P.S I just read through all my blog posts, either I have changed a lot or wasn't myself on here. Because I sound like a LUNATIC, I whined so much. I hope that I've found enough inner peace within myself to not pour out my problems/petty teenage angst on the internet. I'm a weird kid...

Popcorn From a Cooking Pot

I'm siting on a couch in a hotel that is plopped down in a somewhat questionable area. I have blisters all over my hands, a sunburn, two awesome new CDs and a homemade comic book. I think you need some elaboration. My sister and I took a road trip, from our town in East Bumfuck Connecticut to go to Rochester and see a cool chick play a show at a coffee shop. It was pretty fun, she played an awesome show and the guy who played before her was also really good. I'm jealous, I wish I lived in a place where people played good music at coffee shops. After the show we bought her CD, which she signed- yay. I spent most of the small amount of money I had on CDs and stuff at the show, so for dinner I had the popcorn that came complementary with my hotel room. I searched frantically for a bowl to put my nutritious and well balanced dinner in, but all I came up with was a large cooking pot. It's so big it could fit a small infant inside. Ridiculous.

In other news, I started working on Monday, I don't know if I've mentioned before that I have a really elegant and well paying job this summer. I'm working on a farm. I'm just going to let the internet soak up that information for a little bit. Pretty much it's my job to hoe a whole bunch of shit, like lettuce and onions and stuff. Hence the sunburn and blisters. That's really all I've done so far, my salary is a whole dollar below minnimun wage, go me. I'm not complaining though because I need money and my job does a pretty good job of supplying a meager amount of that for me.

It's 12:15 now, and I should probably get some sleep. We're driving to Ithica tomorrow as a second part of our road trip, and maybe Niagra Falls. Let us all hope I don't trip and fall in. By the way by "probavly get some sleep" I mean that I am tempted to go break into the pool outside (which is closed). I'll let you know how that goes.

A Tangled Mess of Words

Hi there, I haven't blogged in uh... a while. I've been too busy celebrating the fact that I only have 9 more days of school left. THAT'S IT!!!! Okay so now that I'm done freaking out about that, on to other things. I haven't really discovered anyone new on YouTube since my last post, and absolutely nothing has changed. Big huge shocker there. I have a 15 page Spanish final next week, which I should probably be studying for instead of sitting my butt in bed and blogging about nothing. Not to mention a 2 page essay, and spelling counts. Other than that my life is swell, I got a new laptop and and an iPod touch, which was most definitely if not possibly the highlight of my year. Plus Conor Oberst is coming to NY and CT in July, YIPEE. My life is good, my life is good. Oh AND I got two pairs of Old Navy flip flops, which are super comfortable and amazing.

You might know this amazing man, just maybe. He's only a little famous. His name is uh, Ben Folds, yeah? I get to go see him for my birthday! YES! I lovBen Fe olds, and the venue is huge, so I'm super pumped for that. My last birthday I went to see Death Cab For Cutie, and now I get to see Ben Folds. Someone up there sitting in the sky loves me, I'm telling you. My luck is crazy. Okay that's all I have to say about my current luckiness that life has blessed me with. I'll post again when I have something to say, which I almost never do.

I've Tendencies I Can't Seem to Outgrow

Ahhh I'm having a minor meltdown. Like I mentioned in my last post I'm supposed to write a speech, oh but wait I'm not done yet. Not only do we have to write a speech, we have to write a GOOD speech, type it, know it somewhat well, and recite it in front of the class. I'm going to pee my pants and then die. First of all the speech I wrote sucks, I don't know it, and it's not typed. All my fault, although I think YouTube should share some of the blame. I mean I might have written something half decent if I hadn't watched millions of videos as a form of procrastination.

Some good came out of this unfortunate event though, besides the hilarity that will ensue when I stand up at that haunting podium and have nothing to say to my classmates. Maybe I should stand there, shrug my shoulders and say "I'm sorry but I'm no wiser than you are, I don't have any more of an idea about what I'm doing here than you do." I wonder if I would get extra points for being honest. Doubtful. What was I saying? Oh right, good news coming out of my own procrastination. So while on YouTube in an attempt to avoid the task of speech writing and giving, I stumbled across a great musician by the name of Lauren 'O Connel. (LIES I knew about her before). She's one of Julia Nune's friends, and she was in a few videos. I like her lots, she's super talented. Go check out her channel here if you feel so inclined. The title of my blog is one of her song lyrics, but I don't remember which song.

I had a Spanish test today, the reading comprehension was kind of hard, but I think I did okay on it. *Crosses fingers*
