How can we wear our smiles with our mouths wide shut? [18 Aug 2007|11:40am]
In the end, all you can hope for is the love you felt to equal the pain you've gone through.



For some reason it's always the blind-buys that speak to you the best.
What has felt like the longest summer of my life is now closing,
And I'm moving back to Gainesville tomorrow for what should be a great fall.

Life is like the ocean, so you have to give yourself to the sea.

It sounds so sloppy translated.

But i'm here, on the west coast, and i'm going to be home in two days.

And I just really, really want to float out with the sea lions and dangle above the kelp.

Sufjan Stevens
The Mistress Witch From McClure (Or, The Mind That Knows Itself)

And the winter moves about Illinois
When my sister picks a fight
With the Alexander boy
And my father locks the car
By the store
Still we figure out the keys
And follow him once more

Oh my God
We see it on the floor
The woman on the bed
The ankle brace she wore
Stones and sled
It could have been some other
The mind that knows itself
Has a mind to serve the other
And we run back
Scratching at the door
Scratching at the door

If I'm hiding in the sleeves
Of my coat
When my father runs undressed
He's pointing at my throat
And my brother has a fit
In the snow
And the traffic stops for miles
We take him by the elbow

Oh my God
The shuffling at the floor
A mind that knows itself
Is a mind that knows much more

So we run back
Scrambling for cover
A mind that knows itself
Has a mind to kill the other

(Oh my God
No one came to our side
To carry us away from danger)

Oh my God
He left us now for dead
He left us now for dead


So much has changed in a small amount of time. And not that college was really that short - it indeed felt that way without clear cut schedules and the lack of monotonous high school life. I mean lately, the past few weeks. I'm home now, and it was pretty depressing to slowly take my room apart and see that the awesome place I'd been living with Blake for the past eight months or so is really just an empty white room. I said goodbye to a lot of people that I'll long to see for some time.
It's seemingly easier to be alone when you've lived with 50 other people for a year and been totally responsible for yourself.
It's good to know a few things, like who respects you and who will be around after months of not speaking. It's also a good thing to reflect what you know and what you've seen.

New Feist comes out today. I'll be getting it soon. I've heard it in its entirety, but still, I it's exciting to own the physical CD and booklet and all.
I'm waiting on the new (not so much new, but remastered) Elliott Smith in June I think it is.

In two weeks i'll be in North Carolina, then California for a week.

And holy shit, Bonnaroo.

Books and the beach are beckoning like nothing else.

ive gotta make this super super quick but
New York has never been so amazing
there's no snow but the weather is perfect
i've been super excited to find certain streets/locations of movies i love (the morning-after street in Vanilla Sky, the bench in Manhattan) and to just walk. staying in Brooklyn is great, i've decided it'd be equally as amazing to live here as it is on the island.
so I wanted to see Brazilian Girls on friday night, found it was sold out, got bummed, then saw that theyre playing again New Years Eve...and.... I AM GOING! and man, screw times square, tooooooo many people there. its all about one sexy woman singing in languages I do not understand.
happy new years!
i'm back wednesday.
tomorrow i'm going to my favorite places: The Village, SoHo, Lombardi's Pizza. Should be the greatest of days.
happy new years...twice!

[ mood | humbled ]

if the universe is mastering a conspiracy against my life, then it happens to plan a great amount of thinking for me to do at exactly the point that I leave Miami for New York. its not the first time. In fact, it has been like that every time.

Each time I feel the need to flee and become anonymous for a selfish while, that city presents itself. I'll be there in a week, the first time i'll see New Years there.

My iPod died. it looks like i'm going to be going old school with a sony walkman and burnt CDs.
if anyone is feeling awesome they can make me mixes that would meet well with New York City.

There's a hole in my pocket that's about her size
but I think everything is gonna be alright

keep saying it, repeating, time takes time.

I just opened up my case holding all of my DVDs, and suddenly, they all looked appetizing. Every single one of them.

I want to eat them.

livejournal is indeed whack; but it also serves memory [26 Nov 2006|12:53pm]
i woke up this morning and threw up
i was feeling sick since last night after i had fried ice cream
and i dont know if it was a mix of that and beer or what
but my stomach is still hating me at the moment, so damn you estomago.

i'm going back up today though, and i may be back down in as soon as two weeks

being here a full week let me feel at home again, finally
the rush rush rush of visiting on weekends doesent feel so rushed
in so many ways, this week has felt like summer


it was great to see everybody, get back safetly.
my test this week will determine whether i can leave december 6th or if i have to stay till the 14th. here goes.

been travelling so light when we're floating by [22 Nov 2006|01:20am]
Three blind buys today - Emily Haines, Converge, Cat Power

2/3 is alright...anyone want to buy the new Cat Power CD?

Yesterday we left gainesville at almost 4, got to Miami at 8:30, I rushed to UM and about a minute after I walked into the arena the lights went out, and Deathcab boarded the stage.
fuck, it was amazing. anyone who says they have a dull live show is all lies. Title and Registration, The New Year, and Translaticism made it for me. Their set was awesome, awesome.

Can Emily Haine's solo stuff beat Feist? Fuck no, but it still hits the spot right now.

Things burn, thanksgiving is here and that also means that old friends are as well.
danny tonight: "we don't see this kid for years and we're still doing the same fucking thing as always."

I could go for being about past Newberry right now, past where the street lights go out,fucking struck by billions of lights in the sky that remind you that every thought you have while stargazing is a cliche, that it has all been thought before at some point, and rather than raising pensive thoughts, it brings you that much closer to your own humanity.

I'm damaged bad at best.
me tonight, to danny: "i'll never fucking stop listening to Elliott Smith."

and I love this cold.

how much i probably need this [08 Nov 2006|03:36pm]
spontaneous opportunities are great -

and tonight im heading to Tally to see Modern Life is War and Converge.
i'm definitely looking forward to Modern life is war so much more
I can't count how many times i've listened through Witness

also, RUMSFELD IS OUSTED

and the democrats....almost have the senate?

and my refrigerator makes gurgling noises very often
it sounds like snowmen are smoking a bong in there
its really scary at night

everyone...vote!

if you're at all dissatisfied about our state our country...its almost mandatory that you have some say in how it turns out for these elections.

if you're in Gainesville, call 352-374-5252 and tell them that you've changed your address since you last registered.

voteforjimdavistoo alright...now pray the senate turns democrat so we can get fuckass out of office.


in other news about my physical health, i have a never-ending charlie horse on my left leg from the constant dives in ultimate frisbee yesterday.

veteran's day weekend is going to be amazing!

no classes, an SE, and happy feet.

let them eat cake [22 Oct 2006|08:28pm]
what an amazing weekend.

i feel bad for ditching livejournal, its just...its just.... so much

is always going on

Greta came up to visit, and it feels like i'm in a new place all over again after spending a weekend with her here. Gainesville really is a laid back place and I haven't realized that fully until now.

And classes? How about I get to write a paper comparing Dawn of the Dead and A Clockwork Orange as critiques of contemporary society. Couldnt be any more awesome.

To add, or rather to conclude, because I need to make myself some food, "Ceremony" by New Order is my song of the day. Marie Antoinette keeps getting better and better the more that I think about it. See it!

drag like pull [21 Sep 2006|04:28pm]
my room is now quieter and for the moment, more crowded too because of the mass clutter. we got detripled this week, so Alex has moved out. It was not the easiest of things to deal with but both sides will work out just fine.

each week here is a little different, and they all pass so quickly.
each night is a little different too, and those pass slow since days don't feel like days anymore.
sometimes its music jamming, sometimes its midnight boxing, sometimes it involves food, sometimes its just mortal combat in max's room.

sarah, i have your CD still!

justin, I met some guy today named Oscar that went to Gables that knows you.

I think i'm just too lazy to send individual messages :D

Biodiversity in half an hour, and my lunch sandwich has made me feel sick :(

film papers due tomorrow. woooot.
