"At that moment, I knew that I had to have him, even if it was the last thing I did. I achieved my wish. Unfortunately, it also did happen to be the last thing I did. Quite literally."

"Most of the things I know about my best friend, I've found out through Google searches. Not through him."

6:45 pm - What is wrong with me?
Someone invited me to join a facebook group for supporting Mike Huckabee. It had a picture on it, and only the picture caused me to question whether or not he's really as bad as people say he is. I dunno... the picture just made him seem so helpless and harmless to me. It made me feel bad for him, and almost made him seem kind of cute to me. And then I started to read his viewpoints for that reason. I don't agree with them, but somehow I still believe that he's an okay person.

Here's the picture:

current mood: sad

5. When you go to the next question, press the next button

9:10 am - I wish that that could just be fine.

That's our cat now. The neighbors left her behind when they moved. She liked us better than she liked them. Her name is Josephina. I guess that she's not really mine, because I'm moving in but a few days, but it's still pretty exciting.

10:21 am - Becoming insane
Post the first TWO (real) sentences from each month of 2007...

January: Once again, my heart is not with me. Hah, more walking along blindly through these hallways.

February: Yeah, so... on Tuesday, I went with Jen to her school. Upon walking through the hallway, we passed her former psychology teacher, Sanjay Paul.

March: Wow, it's March! :o That's all I can say to express my "astonishment".

April: Yesterday, my stomach really hurt and I could barely walk 'cause of it, so I stayed home bells 1-4. I came in at lunch and went to bells 5-7.

May: I've always told myself that I'd do something weird or just generally be strange, the last few weeks of high school. Now, it's here, and I'm just not totally sure what to do.

June: As soon as school's out, I unconsciously begin to screw up my sleep schedule. This explains why I'm up at 3AM printing out an AIM conversation between me and Jon, for the purpose of taping it in here to describe some of the finer details of my most recent trip.

July: No entries in July.

August: This is not the entry that will explain EVERYTHING. No, that entry will have to be written in the evening, when I reside in Kiawah Island with my parents, when there is nothing better to do.

September: Some of the most notable events in my summer haven't been transcribed yet, simply for the reason that they are too detailed to be written out. I normally write things down, but when everything piles up, it's really hard to sit down and find the willpower to spend hours documenting everything that's been happening.

October: I've felt very inspired about upcoming plans, recently! It's so hard to believe that it's October, mainly because it's still a little too warmish outside for my preference.

November: Well, in the past few days, there has definitely been quite an odd turn of events. In several ways, really.

December: It's so strange that the time is nearly upon me. ;_; I don't know if I fully believe it yet.

current mood: uncertain

2:44 am - Pay attention.
the sometimes sad but inescapable truth that you can't hold someone's love against them.

That's the line that stuck out to me from the movie that I saw this night. I didn't remember it from the book. I guess that now it has more meaning to me.

I said something to somebody today that was very important, but they did not hear me.

(the book was way better than the movie, btw.)

current mood: contemplative

1:37 am - Obligated to the study of my mind
A feeling just washed over me that says that I don't HAVE to go to sleep.

But it passed very quickly...

I wish I could have that feeling of no obligations more often. It's like even when I have no obligations, I still feel obligated to something. Does that make sense? Maybe it's okay, though.

current mood: sleepy

9:19 pm - Moving on to
I just got back from dinner with my friend Scotty. I met him at work a while back. He got transferred to the night shift, though. The same thing that happened to my last decent friend at work! :p Don't get me wrong; the people there are okay in general. They can be fine to talk to and all. I just rarely find a person there that I have things in common with. Doesn't matter, I suppose... I won't be working there much longer. Ha!

I'm going to edit Scotty's book for him. He's been working on it for the past seven years, apparently. It's a sci-fi type of novel, and it sounds really interesting from all that he's told me. I will get paid for this! He obviously isn't sure yet how the book will do, so I might not get paid much at all if people think it sucks. Oh well, it's still an interesting project to undertake, in any case.

I'm probably going to be spending a lot more time at home. I changed my work schedule so that I can work more, because there are a lot of things I have to do and places I have to go. I sometimes feel like I have more fun staying at home, talking to friends on the phone and online, and doing little projects, than I do going out in big groups. Of course, I do have a select few friends that I really enjoy doing things with, but there are other people that make hanging out a big hassle! :p

I have a few DVDs to watch, things to edit, and people to talk to.

I understand that a new chapter in my life has begun.

current mood: hopeful

2:57 pm - Embed yourself.
Okay, so I was wrong. People do comment on LJ posts. It was GJ that people weren't commenting on much. I guess that's just because I don't know as many people on there. Or maybe because my posts were too vague. I will never know.

Things are going to change soon, a lot. I have things planned out in my head, but rarely does the true outcome match the playouts in one's head. I need to tell a couple people a couple things... things that will change each of our outlooks on each other, most likely. I already did this with one person, and it seems like things have been better with him since then.

When it's safe to write how things really are, maybe I'll start doing that. My posts might be friends only, though...

current mood: okay

12:17 am - Dusting things off
Okay, I'm updating my goddamn livejournal.

I went to a couple TMBG shows, and shit happened. But I still had an experience, which is good.

I will be going to more in the future.

I am relocating soon.

Nobody will comment on this entry.

current mood: bitter

9:44 pm - The customers scattered on the tile floor
I have so many things to do, and so far, I've not gotten started on any of them, really. I have a "Facere" list upstairs in my room. It's on a post-it and it sticks to my (large) dresser.
The following things are written on it:
-Go through old clothes
-Straighten up room
-File old papers
-Format/put my music on my new iPod (which was freeee, Mike gave it to me :])
-Schedule test and get drivers license
-Organize hard drive and get laptop
-Write a story that someone requested me to write
-Take some photos that someone requested me to take.

I do plan to do these things, but first I have to get in the right state of mind, you see. I also need to write a lot more. So many things have happened this summer that I just haven't adequately documented yet. :[


Do you ever like to do or say things just to see what others' reactions will be? Maybe I should start doing that more often... I'd like to see what I can and can't do and what will yield positive or negative results.

I've been invited to go to IHOP tonight at 11:30PM by Veronica, whom I work with. She's a pretty decent person, compared to most of my coworkers. I invited Brandon along too, because Alex Everson is already going. Alex E used to be my friend a while back; now we don't talk so often. I usually dislike going out with people I don't know well, but I figure that I should tonight. I won't be gone long, afterall!

current mood: hopeful

8:38 pm - The start of a blackout, I hope not.
I'm writing in this ( http://www.greatestjournal.com/~chaosbydesign ) journal because of Jen. (I suppose a bit because of Andrew as well.) This one in particular. I suppose I might as well cross-post it to my livejournal, because there's not much sense having it on this one and not on the other one. The idea of writing in this stems from the fact that not everybody really knows other people as well as they think they do. People have to see all sides of a person before they can really say that they truly know them and the way they think. I think that seeing how people write about their life and thoughts really helps a person to be understood a lot better by those around them, so I'm going to try to write in this throughout my free period (from now until March). I'm not promising in any way that I'll always be in the right state of mind to write, but I'll try my best.

It's strange though how I actually want to do this, because I don't feel in any way comfortable writing about what my life is really about, or what I really think. In the conversation I had last night with Jen, I was talking about how if people are too blunt about what they really think or do, it often makes them seem moronic just because of how precisely they cite what they do with their lives. If they disclose their jealous thoughts, their irrational ones, their shameful actions. I'm not sure why it has to be that way, because everybody makes mistakes and has dumb thoughts, quite often probably. But people who write about it and seem totally fine with it have always eluded me.

I guess that everything starts somewhere, so I might as well disclose one thing: Almost everything I find interesting about my life has to do with other people and their actions. I'm not sure if most people would guess that about me, but it's true. It's not that I don't do anything by myself, but I often find myself pondering about why other people do the things they do, my relationships with those surrounding my life, and problems to solve involving them. I have set plans for myself, but often I revolve them around other people. The strange thing though, is that I don't even necessarily like most people. A lot of people I meet are nowhere near being on the same wavelength I am, and this makes it somewhat difficult to make good friends. But I'm talking about the people who I am good friends with, or anybody that affects me significantly... directly, or indirectly.

I'm not sure how to go about writing about them though, because I'm not sure if I would upset them by writing certain things, or if I would let something personal of theirs slip. I guess that I'll have to do lots of consulting before writing stuff. :p

Nothing to write about this day in particular; this entry has served to just be an opener, perhaps.

current mood: indescribable

2:11 pm - Roll out that special head
So, iownyouboth, your LiveJournal reveals...

You are... 9% unique (blame, for example, your interest in unfamiliar parts of town) and 19% herdlike (partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy writing). When it comes to friends you are popular. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are keen to please. Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is absurdly obscure.

Your overall weirdness is: 117

(The average level of weirdness is: 27.
You are weirder than 100% of other LJers.)

Find out what your weirdness level is!
