Friendships can be such a bummer dude...

On a brighter note, today Cam and I went to Return to Eden and dumpstered a tonnnn of green veggies and some fruit and soy/almond milk. Then we headed over to the Food Not Bombs house to hang out and cook and stuff, but on the way there my car ran out of gas... which makes no sense, because I was just barely in the little... red zone thing. Anyway, about twelve different people helped us throughout the whole thing, and it was definitely an experience to have to push my car up a hill. -sigh- By the time my gas tank had two gallons in it, we were hot and sweaty and stinky (<3) and I've got a noticeable sunburn on my shoulders and back. All in all though, I'm just glad someone was with me, or else I would have just started crying, considering the already crappy morning I had just had.

We finally got to FNB and had a great time. It's so awesome to be surrounded by loving and warm people. Me, Cam, Katie and Andy hung out for a bit and had a bunch of fun. I also got a new bicycle today for $24. It's a rad pink fixed gear that's suuuper lightweight. It needs a tiiiiny bit of work, but it's nothing I can't handle. I'm so excited, I might go work on it after this. My septum piercing is healing up nicely, by the way! :)


patched up fanny packs and cut-offs and catnaps and dumpsters and high fives.

Can't escape...

these demons in my head.

I love my house. I love my job. I love living here.
But some part of me knows this isn't what I was supposed to be doing.

Every morning on my way to work, I drive under a bridge that a train is usually going over. My heart sinks a little because I'm not on it. This summer was supposed to be full of motion and adventure, new states and faces, dirt and sweat. I know it's shitty of me to complain because I've got every single thing I could ask for... but my heart has been set on something else for nearly four years now...

Lawrenceville < Atlanta

For realll.

The house show last Friday night was really great. Dakota played, and not only does he do sweet covers, but he's extremely talented and has a wonderful voice. Lucky... Madeline Ava, Max Weiss, and Mrs. Triceratops (a combination of Madeline, Ronnie, and Matt) were all really awesome, too. They're the kind of people I'd like to be surrounded by... passionate, motivated kids who have a good time just hanging out. I didn't feel like we had to try and entertain them the whole time they were over. They were happy to just eat and drink coffee and mess around on their various intruments on our living room floor. Madeline covered "Hitched Up Kids" by Rosa and it felt nice to sing along with my friends. I really appreciate everyone who actually came over. however, I was (am) also really disappointed to realize how many of my (")friends(") actually care enough to take the time to drive here and hang out. I know a bunch of them had legitimate reasons they couldn't make it, but I also know the ones who didn't... and just didn't feel like coming over. Moving to Atlanta has allowed me to sort through who really does care about me... and who really doesn't. Thanks, you guys.

note to self...

remember to download Daitro soon. Soon soon soon.

at my mom's...

right now. I hung out with her a bit today, and it was really, really fun. Saw my sisters, too. Got ambushed with hugs. Lizzy and I are gunna hang out for a bit and grab coffee-should be fun. She's buying some of my old makeup from me. It's weird to think about wearing it anymore.
Every time I get on the computer, I log onto something and sit at the screen for about a minute... and decide I don't want to be on it and just sign off.

Not much going on, just working a bunch, but I can't complain about that. We're having a house show tomorrow (Friday). The kids playing spent the night Monday (?) and they're really cool. They left for Florida Tuesday (again, ?) morning, and they're coming back tomorrow afternoon. I'm really excited. One of them, Matt, plays banjo. It made me really wanna get one... Dakota also hung out, which was nice. I'm pretty sure maybe he just doesn't like us. He never spends time with me, Johnny and Cam, which is pretty disappointing :\

Went to Sopo last night with Johnny, Cam, Dakota, Katie, and Corey (one of Cam's friends) and we all fixed up our bikesies, and then went on a pretty nice ride down Moreland. It felt great and I wouldn't let myself get off. It was nice to push myself up all the hills.

I feel like more interesting things have happened, but I can't think of anything right now. Uhh, here's pictures I've promised. Screen stretch-idge alert.

Zizek (brindle) and Orwell (black and white) cuddling. They rule.

Work tomorrow at 7 AM. I'm getting trained to make sandwiches. I've had the past two days off, and they've felt so nice to stay home and clean and hang out and watch movies and cuddle with the pups. Our house looks like people actually live here, and we're finally starting to have everything moved in and put away. Still don't have a bed yet, but hopefully that'll be taken care of this weekend.
I've had more money come into my hands and then right out in the past week, but it feels good to be working hard to get somewhere. A lot of people I know have this mentality that they shouldn't work for anything they want. That's so frustrating. Regardless of what society you live in, primitive or post-industrial, you're going to have to exert some sort of effort to see progress... in everything. I keep trying to explain this, but I guess if you have no work ethic (and by work that can mean virtually anything) you're not going to attempt to grasp that concept. Feel free to argue with me if you disagree.
So far my roommates are awesome. Johnny and I have our ups and downs but for the most part, things are great. Dakota has been really cool so far, even though we barely hang out. He's always working! I hope we really actually hang out at least a couple of times before he leaves. Cam's moving his stuff earlier than expected. He's been hanging out with me and Johnny a ton and it's been a ton of fun.
We paid our first bill today. It was weird! And the dogs are getting better about not pooping and pissing all over the house or chewing everything up everything they see. I fixed the floors and the trim where the dogs had messed them up--not sure if I mentioned that in my last post. We also went to the Decatur Library today and signed up for a card. They've got an awesome selection but I was feeling tired so I didn't really look at the books. They do have a bunch of Criterion films though... <3>
