New Design

I decided it was time for a something different, so I changed the colors/images, but kept the same basic layout. The image is one of my favorite bands- Love You Long Time. They are awesome techno/powerpop, but unfortunately they are practically unknown outside the mormon population of Cali, Idaho, Utah, and Arizona. They're coming to town tomorrow night, and I am ecstatic to see them in concert for the second time, so I figured this would be fitting. :)

School's OUT!!!!

Finally, a little relaxation... This last month especially has been really really crazy, and I've just gotten super stressed out, so a little break will be good, and then I need to get started on summer reading for English and start working out in preparation for the lacrosse camp I'm going to and the team trip we're taking to a tournament in Chicago. Woohoo! Now, however, it's time for bed.

I am sick of hearing from people that life isn't fair. Not because I disagree. No, I totally acknowledge that Life is not, nor will it ever be, fair. The reason I hate hearing it is because of the connotation... Most often when people say that life isn't fair, it's with the unspoken attitude that there is no use trying to change it. Life isn't fair, so just accept it and move on. That is so ridiculous. There isn't any point in trying to make things "more fair," for lack of a better phrase, than they are? Excuse me, but that sounds severely pessimistic and totally dumb, and it drives me absolutely crazy.
Ergh. Yesterday was a frustrating day...

Today I learned...

Today I learned that
  • it's possible to laugh hysterically and cry hard in the same day, and both can feel good.
  • there is a difference, when two people have an argument, between one person giving up and letting the other person have their way and the two people coming to an agreement.
  • taking sides isn't usually effective, even when you've heard both sides.
  • there is no such thing as hopeless.

I don't think it's humanly possible to dislike The Rocket Summer

break it out
Get it all out
and start freakin out
just so we can make it out
get off your feet and
make this count
ohh

---

You got so much love in you
You got so much love in you
I'm amazed that I'm talkin' to you
You look like the songs that I've heard my whole life coming true

---

I'm thinking 'bout other things I heard about today
All this week and tomorrow
And how these hands could create some better things for bettering
but you see for now I got my own things
...
Do you feel
The weight of the world singing sorrow

---

I'm stuck here alone in the traffic lines
For couples in love in the h-o-v flyby
...
So I'll be picking me up,
Breaking me down
I was lost, was I found?
I wanna feel everything
When everything feels wrong with me
Take a look and brace myself
Everybody wants to make it count

Save me
'Cause I can never float, sinking
Amaze me
And I would be there holding on for life

---

All I have is all of me, and that's all that I can give.
Our disappointed hearts will heal, our hearts will spill over you,
over you over me, over this

---

you've got everybody talking
you've got everybody going
and you've got everybody acting crazy
I'm not gonna say you don't

---

i'm trying as hard as i can
but i'd rather write a song than a business plan
because this is me, saying words i actually mean
i won't compromise this thing just to make it

i want to, thats a given but
i can't imagine the same way as you oh, you
no i'll never do the things they do just to make it
...
do you even know what you're even saying
or are you just saying it cause someone else said it?

---

now in your eyes i can't find you

sorry that I'm taken aback but how I am you never ask
and I don't need such sympathy but a care would be so nice to have
once in awhile you mean more to me than I could ever tell
so sorry that I'm taken aback but I just can't help it

---

and here with you, under these colors
I'll stay with you, there is no other
we share a name, we share a wonder
and on the road ahead we'll keep going further

---

run to you, i will run, i will run
i will move right on through all these things that i have done
and you'll take me back, i don't know why
i wanna say i'll never do it again
but i can't, but i will try

---

Hold it up
Hold it tight
Moments live or moments die
Hold it up
Hold it strong
Stay right here where you belong
Hold it up
Hold it tight
The only plans of mine
Might sound to you cliché
But, I just plan to live the rest of my life

---

because I want to and I need to

waiting, waiting, I'm trying
to get out, to get out but I'm locked right in
so take this, take this away from me now
so I can live, so I can live

---

I don't want you thinking I'm unhappy
What is closer to the truth
Is if I lived 'til I was one-hundred and two
I just don't think I'll ever get over you

---

^So good I can't even stand it...

So I guess I should post something. :P Mostly I'm really starting to get burnt out- not terribly, but we'll just say that I'm going to be ecstatic to have Spring Break in a couple of weeks.
The first JV game for lacrosse is next Monday, and I'm excited and nervous all at once. On the one hand, I feel like we have a pretty solid team, but at the same time, I don't know how we'll really do... Last year, the majority of the girls were okay and we had two or three really skilled girls who pretty much carried the team, but this year I feel like it's more evened out, which I don't think is a bad thing, just something we need to get used to. The big thing is getting everyone into the game and how it's really played, I think. We'll see how it goes, anyway....

Oh, I guess I never mentioned this, but my older brother got engaged back in December, and he's getting married in May. :) I'm excited already- his fiancee asked me to be one of her bridesmaids, and I can't wait! I already have my dress and my shoes, and they're gorgeous. I can't wait!!! :D

Woohoo for feeling like a total jerk and knowing that I have every reason to feel like a total jerk. Because he definitely was sincere in complimenting me and I totally shot him down. Apparently I never got the tact gene. Instead, I got the "talent for saying the wrong thing at precisely the worst time" gene. GO ME.
