My sister’s and I just had a bonding moment - very rare. We were talking about when we were much younger and Meg (my youngest sister) use to sing in her room all the time. Jessica and I found it hilarious because she took it so seriously, so we would always tell her no one was around - then we would hide in her closet and listen to her, trying not to laugh while she sang. One day we told my dad to hide in the closet and listen to her, so he did. Meg was singing the classic “Genie in a bottle”, and if you could just picture this 6 year old singing - it’s hilarious. Anyway, my dad couldn’t keep quiet and he burst out laughing. Meg was furious, swung open the closet door and started hitting him, and then began to cry. Good times
I wake up to find my sister and her boyfriend showering in my shower. WHY?
Tonight I’m going to try and listen to music while I fall asleep. It seems a lot of people prefer to listen to TV, music, or whatever - as long as there’s noise. I’ve never been able to have anything other then peace and quiet. Except once I slept at a friends house, and she chose to listen to rap music, which greatly disrupted my sleep. Maybe this is because I’ve always lived in the country where there is no noise to begin with. Until I moved to London for a year, which was a big difference - with the cars, buses, people, pets - everything. Regardless, I’ll give this music thing a whirl tonight.

Sushi is one of my favorite foods
Guy friends should remain guy friends, nothing else
“Best friend” is a title that can be removed and replaced
Life is what you make it, and I want to make it something wonderful
Don’t take your family for granted, spend as much time with them as possible
You can’t go back to the way things use to be, so embrace the future - it never disappoints
People over the age of 60 will teach you more then a textbook ever will
I have every reason to be happy
Lloyd Dobler: No.
Diane Court: You’re shaking.
Lloyd Dobler: I don’t think so.
Diane Court: You’re cold.
Lloyd Dobler: I don’t think I am.
Diane Court: Then why are you shaking?
Lloyd Dobler: I don’t know. I think I’m happy” —
Say Anything (1989)
Another favorite movie
I’ve been working stupid amounts, and coming home and sleeping. Well actually, last night I went to Peterborough. I didn’t have the intentions of buying anything, but of course I did. Only a fall jacket, scarf, and earrings though. I tried to keep it light, as I’m going to Buffalo Saturday. Oh, and tonight I went boating. I went on this amazing, huge, half a million dollar boat, amazing. My senior friend from the pool, Bruce, owns it. I wore a sailing outfit that made me look like I was doing some sort of kinky role play, which led me to looking like his young, gold digging girlfriend. Awh well, what can you do. I seriously need to sleep, goooodnight.
I’m going cliff jumping, I’m also scared to heights. I might cry now, wish me luck.
Hey, my birthday is in 6 days. 6 days left of being a teenager, it’s kind of scary. I don’t really know what to make of it, I guess age is just a number after all. My friends are the best, they planned an entire weekend for me. Friday night we’re going to a casino, Rama I believe. I’ve never been, but I think I’m prepared for it. A) because my grandma has 4 slot machines in her house that I’ve played since I was 10. B) because I won 500$ off a 50 cent card, which means I must have some sort of luck. I’m looking forward to it, I hope I don’t look like a tourist or anything. On Saturday we’re going to Buffalo and Niagara, I have a feeling it’s going to be complete havoc. But I’m looking forward to every minute of it.
So all it takes a good wedding to make me realize I could potentially be with happy with someone too. Interesting.
“If you hold a camera still enough
You can see Venus wink
And Cancer prowl
I lost my appetite
Counting the stars
Twinkle twinkle little dwarf
You die faster then you live
You have been cast as a lost soul
In heaven’s fabric
But you go out with a bang
A plate that has yet to be washed
With a face of many
It’s just a phase
Somehow men struggled to embrace you
But it only took a cat to make a cow jump
One may say they feel shrunken
In comparison to unanswered questions
But I feel intoxicated
Squishing a galaxy with only my fingertips
I can paint the Milky way to say your name”
My night has resulted in sorting through old school work, which resulted in stumbling across my old poetry books. Which has more or less made me question what even went threw my head back then.” —
I’m so, so, so soo sleepy. I’ve had a terrible sleep the past two nights. The one you wake up every night at the same time, roll around a little, worry about things that aren’t worth it, then fall back asleep. YEAH, I’ve had those. Then today I woke up at 5:15 and so badly wanted to go back to bed, but instead got ready for work. I spent the next 7 hours of work doing nothing of purpose, but by 1 o’clock I had to go to the outdoor pool and teach seniors aqua fit. I really don’t mind doing this, because the ladies are wonderful people, but today it was pouring rain and unbelievably cold. I came home and ended up going to Peterborough with my sister, which was nice I must add. We went for sushi. She started laughing about something I said, and she spit chewed up california rolls all over the table, and me. That was beyond disgusting, but I wasn’t mad. We drove around, and I took the long was home because driving is my favorite thing to do when all else fails. Now I’m sitting in my room, about to have a shower and watch Big Brother.
Oh, and if you’re a fan of 8tracks - I made a new playlist.
Does anyone want to take the initiative to make me a 20 song playlist I can listen to while I drive to work in the mornings. I need something new
Maybe it is easier falling asleep with someone next to you. I haven’t given that any thought for months now. I miss that stuff
I strongly dislike being called “cute”.
You might as well just tell me I look like I’m either a rag doll or a 12 year old girl who could be your sister - AKA; I’m not dateable.
Is that what you really meant?
Going book shopping, the best kind of shopping.
