Insomnia and depression... great...

Apparently my insomnia is back. Why today of all days... well, that's beyond me. But it is desperately annoying... I'm supposed to go to this registration meeting tomorrow so I can start my junior year... I mean, I'm not asking for much... just to go to school... But at the same time I feel like there's a dark cloud of gloom over my head for no apparent reason.

Well... Very apparent reasons, but we don't think about that do we?

I left my boyfriend behind... and now we've… Continue

Caged Bird

A poem to my father dealing with my upcoming move to California

Caged Bird





All my life I’ve waited

Tethered to a leash

Always returning to the same place

Barely room to stretch my wings

Leashed, caged

Free only in taunting words

Freedom so close I can taste it

But I cannot sink in my teeth

I don’t want to wait

I’ve watched for too long

This place can teach me… Continue

Summer means...

Generally summer means going outside, being active, being in the sun... All that jazz.

For me, summer means sweltering inside because going outside isn't much better and I burn so easily it's not worth the effort... but it's apparently not worth the effort to do anything else either. Nothing interests me... I sort of forgot about YouTube in the past week, was slacking on my videos... And generally I've been sulking. Since finals ended:

I've taken (and finished) driver's… Continue

Shingles and side-effects (ew)

I'm stir crazy, it's as simple as that. It's been over a week since I got out of the house at all, I'm not even completely convinced there's a world still out there, or if there is, I haven't indulged in it. And I already lived in a bubble... This is pathetic.

Upon reading my posts the past few weeks (Well, since April 1) I've been sort of out of it... I make little to no sense (Actually, April 3-5 I sort of vanished all together... over 200 messages from the ning by the time I… Continue

You should totally come visit and I'd lend it to you. You should also come visit just for the sake of visiting.

I want to live in Ohio because I have a ton of awesome family there and I like the forests. I also might want to live in San Diego. It's still hot but they have an ocean.

Haha. Thank you! It's not that hard to make. You just need some paint, tape, and a piece of pressed illustration board or something similar.

Wow, that's perfect. I'm going to be getting to Santa Rosa around the 4th or 5th of August and staying with my best friend for the rest of the week. So let me know if you want to hang out, the three of us can get lunch somewhere and I can introduce you to her, and that way you'll know someone in the area. ^^

Random comment from an equally random person:
I love your name (user name). It projects this "I mean business" type feeling. Formal and epic.

So yeah.....O.o that's pretty much all I wanted to say.
