Survey: July 6th, 2009

Are you ready for some questions that you barely find in other surveys?
Oh, let me tell you.

Whose the ugliest person you know?
What kind of stupid-ass shallow question is that?
But honestly, I can't think of anyone I think is ugly.
Everyone I like is pretty damn attractive, don't you think?

...A New Age about to Begin...

What's your opinion on pot?
It should be legalized, even though I wouldn't smoke it. Serving time for non-violent crime is quite stupid.

Do you want to see somebody right now?
Always, lol. I'd rather be hanging out with Michael.

On Becoming a "Dropout Slut Squared"

So, after not wanting to be in school pretty much since I started it back in August, this Tuesday I decided to skip to go to Knoxville instead, and I haven't gone back yet.

After Tuesday though, I haven't really done anything exciting, and I'm definitely feeling somewhat like a lazy bum (although I did a shitload of walking on Wednesday, like 3 hours worth, from which I'm still sore, lol)....
I'm just sort of restless, and I have this huge desire to do something - I'm still completely unsure as to what that something is though.

But as I was sitting in my room on the internet looking at random stuff (no surprises there), it hit me that I was being at least equally as productive in the sense that I see it (school isn't accomplishing a damn thing for me, but reading about current events on the internet is at least educational) as I was at school and I'm happier and less stressed/more confident and just feeling better.

So hopefully, I'll find what it is that I'm supposed to be doing, but until then, I'm at least doing better than I was at school.

Wanting to find Ethan

So, I was completely convinced that Tori and I would run into Ethan yesterday. I had two reasons:

  • Governor's school was going to World's Fair Park to watch fireworks, and basically everyone in Knoxville would be heading to that area.

  • We met Josh on July fourth last year. It would've been completely perfect if we'd found him again then



At the same time though, I'm not surprised that we didn't find him. I'm still hopeful we will soon though.
While we were at world's fair park, I had a Déjà vu experience. In my experience, I saw this girl (funnily enough, I can't remember a thing about her now, but she was very distinctive at the time) and I stared at her, until a guy walked past with a parrot on his shoulder. As soon as that happened, I thought "Oh, in my dream when this happened, we were about to run into Ethan".
Also, Patrick told me that he dreamed about Ethan.
So I'm still sure that one of us (I think I mean one of the people who knew Ethan) will find him soon.

3 days down....

So, by the second day (first full day) of Governor's school, I was already feeling the conform vibes. I shaved my hippy legs so I could wear shorts.
Tori's totally feeling them too...She ate ice cream today... Turned out they had soy dream ice cream all along though. I felt sick enough just from the sugar, lol. I am so not conforming on the veganism thing though, because the reading for my chemistry class last night was all "Animal and Dairy fats contribute to heart disease, eat vegetables and fruit instead"... Only in more scientific, and probably less judgmental terms. And of course the fact that I don't even want most dairy anymore..It's so heavy. People were talking about drinking milk today, and I just can't imagine drinking a straight glass of the crap.
I mean, sure, it'd probably be good coming from some country farm... But that's so not how it is... There's so much stuff besides just milk in it. Hormones, pus, etc.
I know my lifestyle isn't one that everyone should follow, but damn, it just seems so logical to me. Kill your body, and the animals and the planet for what? So you can be overweight and constipated? I can say that because I know from experience, lol.
And once you make the switch and say "Okay, no more dairy", it really stops becoming tempting.
I don't know who I'm trying to convince/convert, but yeah. I mean, it's not like anyone reads this crap anyway. Maybe I'll show up in a google search or something. lol, except no one will link to it either, so it'll be totally on the bottom of the results.

I miss Ethan. What more can I say? We all need to accept the light of Vegan Jesus into our hearts.

Governor's School vs. MSRC
Better: Worse

  • No dinners at Presidential

  • No Cassie

  • College credit

  • Less walking (Okay, I like walking... or at least I like how I look after a whole month of walking all over this damn campus)

  • More people

  • A roommate I didn't know beforehand

  • Less restrictions and mandatory activities

  • I have a laptop this time


  • No Ethan, Josh, and Jordan. Even though I didn't befriend Ethan and Josh till later.

  • Homework

  • Less classes

  • Less time to sleep (goddamnit)

  • More writing? I think. I guess we shall see.



Okay, so I have to go read the rest of my chapter in the logic book, and I need sleep, so I'll stop procrastinating and just go do it. I should've read it all yesterday. Do I get extra credit for that fabulous HTML table though? I should.

Spring Break....So far.

Gatlinburg-Pittman's spring break started on Friday the 21st; and Mom, Tom, Tori and I left Gatlinburg then and went to Jefferson, North Carolina... The next day we drove to Washington, D.C. so that we'd be able to go to The Mountain Goats concert. Tori had been talking about going to the concert since January, and when we first were talking about it, we were planning on it being a road trip kind of thing, with Josh and I taking turns and driving... But then Kathy came along, and she hates going to the Smithsonian museums (one of the things we were going to do besides the concert), so Josh sort of didn't care about coming anymore.
Anyway, Mom had found this really cool hotel that was only a few blocks away from the Black Cat, the club that the concert was at, but she hadn't bought tickets for the concert because she wasn't sure whether or not J.T. and Josh were coming and she didn't want to waste $30 if they didn't come. The desk clerks at the hotel sang "Happy Birthday" to Tori when they found out that we were here for her birthday celebration and they were nice and friendly.
As much as people are always talking about "Southern Hospitality" and how people in small towns are supposed to be friendlier, I just don't see it. There's so much more interaction with people to begin with in a city, and more often than not, they're much more friendly than people Temptation, Garbage, etc.)
I was completely exhausted by the time the concert finished, in Tennessee. Desk clerks at Sevier County motels are always just like "Bitch, shut up and go about your loser tourist ways. We don't give a damn about you, just give us your money and leave." Sevier County's main industry is tourism, so you'd think they'd try harder to be nice to tourists, but no. They're rude to tourists and to locals. I swear, 99% of the people who live in Sevier County are complete assholes. Like that lying parking attendant who was rude to us at the library parking lot. I guess since I just wasted a week of my life in that backwards environment, I'm feeling more strongly about it than usual. It's just such a nice change to be in a big city after freaking Gatlinburg though. I'm so glad I don't live there anymore. It's a completely negative environment.
Back to our D.C. trip though, we walked to the club and since tickets were sold out, Mom and Tom asked people if they were willing to sell their tickets, and we ended up spending $200 on four tickets instead of $60, but we got in so that's all that really matters.
I'm not really into The Mountain Goats, but it was pretty enjoyable for my first concert.
We waited in line for hours though, so by the time the concert actually started my feet were sore, but I'm just a whiny girl.
Before the Mountain Goats played, this band called The Moaners played, and I liked them...they were two girls on the guitar and drums, and it was pretty kick-ass, but then again, I am pretty partial to female singers. (Nightwish, Tegan and Sara, Withinand one of my contacts tore so it was annoying and I could only see out of my left eye....It's a hard knock life for us.
For Easter Sunday Brunch, we ate at Rosemary's Thyme Bistro, and it was pretty decent. When we asked the waitress about Vegan options, she knew what we meant though, which was a welcome change. As we were leaving D.C., I took some pretty neat pictures:
DC Pictures )
After brunch, I spilt coffee all over myself because Tom went over a speedbump and I was holding the coffee cup between my legs (really smart, right?)...Then we went and visited Tom's college, the University of Virginia. He's been trying to convince us to attend it since he met us a year ago. He doesn't really know that right now, my attitude is like Michael's: "I don't need college, I have Wikipedia", something that most of the adults in my life are despairing. You know, because I was showing so much promise before I quit public high school. I was already thinking about not attending college because it's all about writing papers and making projects, two of my least favorite things.

It Had to Be You

What if it was you?
You that I needed all along?
I felt like a fool
Thinking we were completely wrong

It seemed like a dream
One beautiful screen
That echoed forever
And made us not afraid to feel a thing

And after it ends
We'll try to be friends
They say that what doesn't kill us makes us who we are

All this time and everything's changed but I still feel the same
All good things eventually end and get washed down the drain

What a disaster it would be if you discovered that I cared
A little too much for friends but not enough to share

Writer's Block: Happy Halloween!

I went to my mother's house by the Blue Ridge Parkway the weekend before halloween and did autumn/halloween kinds of things: picked pumpkins and carved them into jack-o-lanterns, went for walks to look at the leaves, and ate too much candy. Theresa's boyfriend bought Tori and I new clothes, which was really excellant, since both of us had either worn out all our clothes, or they didn't fit anymore.
Pictures from Mom's )

And then on official Halloween, I went to downtown Gatlinburg and walked around with my sister and brother and we hung out with our friends. I didn't really dress up, but Tori went as an American (who will shoot you for no good reason):

So smile, 'cause you'll go out in style.

So I just spent 6 days with my mother (something I never thought I would do on purpose) and it went fine, even nice. We never fought, we had good conversations...
She said "something about you is just so different now... you're calmer, and you just don't have that angst anymore" (okay that's paraphrased, but I don't remember it word-for-word) and maybe it's just because I'm older now... or that I spent all last summer thinking about what I did wrong... and I guess I sort of angsted myself out, but now I can get along with her... and I always used to say "I can get along with anyone, except my mother" and maybe all the anger and drama and hurt is all over with and I can move on and not be a normal person, but at least be a happy person. It sort of comes as a surprise when I realize... Everything has been going good for me... And that never happens, but now it definitely is.. I have options, I have choices... Something I didn't used to think I had.  And everything is just sort of falling into place... it's just really nice...

Love is For Losers!



If love is for losers, then perhaps only losers fall in love!

Yes well i wouldn't normally say something that deprecating...
But two of my friends...who apparently are in love, but instead are just acting like losers....and besides it has such perfect alliteration.....

SO MUCH FOR NOT BEING READY FOR A GIRLFRIEND...


Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned...

Take your Hatred out on Me.

You Never ever believed in Me.

I never wanted it to end like this.

You Can't save yourself

*above quotes from Marilyn Manson Songs*

"It's alright, I'm just a girl she said
talk down to me and take me to bed
I don't think I don't feel
and I don't really matter at all
Kiss me in darkness and turn out the light
pretend you're with someone else tonight
you don't think you don't feel
and I don't really understand why

I'm a person who speaks I'm a person who thinks
but you hope I'll forget as you ply me with drinks
and you cannot buy me and you cannot use me
but I know that you'll want to try...

It's alright, I'm just a girl she said
you can't buy me and take me to bed
because I think
because I feel
and you don't matter at all"

-Just a Girl by Dubstar (I just discovered them cuz one of my favorite bands did a cover of one of their songs...So this explains how i'm all of a sudden listening to '90s Brit-Pop)
