pick your battles better.

just stop and think. before you act.

i'm still young because i still blast the radio, jump around in my apt. half naked when i shouldn't and have strong desires to stay up late, have people over, bounce around on a bed, and essentially be reckless and free.

what a day. what a year.

i'm learning the word cautious, like never before. inside and out. vowels and consonants.
and responsible. managing risk and investing.

and torn. very torn.

oh logic. that thing i never thought would kick in. let's hope i'm not settling into some mediocrity. or stagnancy. let's hope it's just a bug.

"Everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more, perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless."

i really hate not getting what i want. especially when i want it.

it makes me do things that i would not normally do, go to extremes to get it.

i may need to change this in order to become a better person, all around. at least i know what the problem is now, right? it's a doosy.

stuart or manolo? that is the question. whether tis' nobler....etc. etc.

maybe not shoe, maybe debt.


sigh!
 
 
cleaning my apt. has never felt so good. it's not just rearranging some things. redecorating. it's deliberating reorganizing the thoughts in my head, my ambitions, my plans. everything. deliberately and subconsciously. it's the only thing that feels good right now, besides the hint of humidity. i don't even mind it when it is like this.




my picture window looks different to me now, maybe i am beginning to see things differently. last night i talked and talked and talked and talked. i didn't know i had that in me. just waiting to be said, to be explain and parsed through.

and now i feel the need to be quiet and solitary. everything just falls into place.

tonight was beautiful. i watched a suburban pick up softball game as the sunset, behind a post office, in a park next to train tracks. i raced my dad on a bike and tried to entertain a baby. my dad told me about the beagles that the mail people feed across the street. i was happy and i felt alive and wonderful. more please.

i am completely petrified of getting alzheimers when i am old. it would be a sick, sick joke on me in particular. is it not enough to already be completely proustian in my daydreamy musings?

71/100

i miss playing the piano at very odd occurrences. like when i listen to joni mitchell, or want to put another piece of furniture in my apartment.

72/100
sylvia plath is fascinating to me, and may always be. i don't think that's cliche at all. see statement 12 on vanity. yes, all the way back.

73/100
my feet have lost a size and half since high school. what does that mean?!

74/100
i am working out in shoes that are at least, from junior year of highschool. i really need a new pair of running shoes.

75/100
i haven't received my new york times sunday paper in two weeks and this makes me especially depressed since i missed the style design issue. drat.

76/100
i am still an overachiever. i take on way too much, but hey, it keeps me going i guess.

77/100
senior year of high school was amazing, in every way ever. it's weird that my brother is going to franklin. it's weird that he is 15!

78/100
i am really diggin' detroit public radio, it's very soothing and they have great taste in jams.

79/100
i love good spring rain, and romantic french movies. and tomato basil mozzarella sandwiches.

80/100
On the whole i make no apologizes for the largeness of my sunglasses. i have very light sensitive eyes, curse of being blue.

81/100
bra shopping for me is like trying to find a needle in a very bland(read beige) haystack. why can't someone make sexy bras for girls with real breasts? i'm just saying. and victoria's secret is shit.

82/100
i am going to find some time to begin my new writing project this week if it kills me

83/100
i will be getting my bangs trimmed this week as well. i always try to hold out until they look really ridiculous. i'm not sure why, because it's only like 10 bucks and five minutes of my time.

59/100


i would be a terrible heroin addict. the slightest prick of a needle to draw some blood has left me with ridiculous green line bruises on my left inner elbow. is there a word for that patch of skin? if the elbow's the outside, what's the inside called anyway?


i'd be so obvious. good thing...

i have seriously scary, vivid, semi hallucinogenic dreams. most of the time i remember right when i wake up, but then forget. this compounds itself when i'm feverish, i've recently learned. trippy.

55/100

i love habitual driving. i find it very soothing and a time when i can just ruminate on things. it something i do religiously, more than anything that is remotely religious

56/100

i never will get another tetanus shot again in my life!

57/100

i like that you call me and we talk for hours and we laugh and reminisce and surmise. i hope whatever happens we never lose that.

58/100
i am very squeamish about blood. period.

i'm a shopaholic.

45/100
i had an unhealthy craving for salt today that was satiated by plentiful amounts of soy sauce and pretzels.

46/100
i have a hormonal/thyroid problem that seriously needs to be looked at.

47/100
i use line/wrinkle reducing cream for under my eyes. see my statements with regards to vanity. (to the lady at the counter, yes mam, i am 23 and your cleavage is showing excessively, now give me my damn sample)

48/100
i have a serious problem with my mom's dog sometimes because he bites. i know he's had a rough life, but i've never been around dogs that do that.

49/100
i am very anxious for spring. more so this year, than in years past.

50/100
i can't believe it's already march, the middle of march actually.

51/100
i had a serious existential crisis on friday--i'm pretty sure that while i like my plateau that i've hit, that i felt the first pang of my mortality. i'm worried there's not enough time and it feels kinda like i'm short of breath when i think about it.

52/100
i've been single for so long, and i've grown quite used to it. i'd like to think that i will one day look back and realize that right now, i have it made.

53/100
i love andrew bird. alot. and birds.

when i get drunk, i use big words to impress others, especially men. sometimes i compose poetry. but it usually turns out pretty shitty.


30/100
i lived just outside of florence for 3.5 months and now, i can barely remember italian. but as i look back, i did love being there. i wish i would have stayed with a host family, i think that would have made things perfect.

31/100
come this spring, i will have lived alone for two years. i don't know if i could ever go back

32/100
i was doing really good with the whole ymca/working out thing, but i haven't gotten into my new schedule yet.
i would still love to lose ten pounds before my birthday, but at this rate, i'd be better off if i got the flu.

33/100
i am a shopaholic.

34/100
i am taking my 16 year old cousin to go see confessions of a shopaholic. i will love every minute of it.

35/100
i was planning on taking an art class at ccs, the fundamentals of design, but when i realized there was intensive drawing involved, i dropped it. hah. i know i should have known better, but the class description said visual communication, so i thought it was going to be more theory.

36/100
i love my new job. so. so. so. much. I love it. People have confidence in me, and think my ideas are new and good. I secretly had a moment today where I thought I should go back to school for business/marketing. Maybe I still should. Who knows.
