Sometimes I feel guilty that I'm not living the way I always imagined I would in my twenties. When I imagined where I'd be now as a teenager I pictured, oh, squatting in a broken-down townhouse full of punks and artists and radicals, and writing beautiful terrible drunk poetry, and having awkward one-night stands. Getting cool haircuts. Not owning a TV. Maybe making zines or something. Drugs and late nights and waking up in unfamiliar places. Instead I'm in grad school, engaged, and living in an apartment in the not-quite-suburbs. With a TV and matching lamps. And a fuckton of cats.

I mean, I expected the cats. But not the rest of it. I wear cardigans now, and frame pictures instead of tacking them directly onto the wall, and I've fallen asleep on the couch three times this week! Before midnight, even!

I like my life, but I find it interesting that it bears so little resemblance to the way I thought I'd live when I was young. I don't believe in selling out as a concept anymore, really, for a lot of reasons, but I did back then, and I know that's what I'd think happened.

I still plan on getting a lot of tattoos, though. And cool haircuts. So there's that, I suppose.

I listened to Battle For The Sun today and, well, I don't think I've disliked a Placebo album this much since Sleeping With Ghosts. Blah blah blah, I got opinions! )

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN

(AND WHOEVER ELSE MAY BE IN THE HOUSE THIS EVENING)

I HAVE FOUND A WAY TO SUBTLY ADVERTISE MY QUEERNESS TO ANY AND ALL SPACE ALIENS PASSING THROUGH THE VICINITY.

SERIOUSLY YOU COULD PROBABLY SEE THIS FROM SPACE THAT'S HOW GAY IT IS. )

ALSO WHILE WE ARE AT IT, A FRANK IERO-RELATED PICTURE THAT NEVER FAILS TO MAKE ME LOL. )

Things I learned today: In St. John's, the way to determine which bus to take is not by looking at the route number, or by reading the route description, or by judging where that very same bus went the day before, but by MAGIC. On the plus side, I now know how to get to the opposite end of the city should the need ever arise!

I also learned that MUN has an English Society (+10 pts) that holds movie nights* (+25 pts) and an annual masque (+100 000 000 000 000 PTS AND A FREE SCHOLARSHIP).

Uggggggh I feel sluggish and unimpressive today. SOMEONE SHOULD AMUSE ME. POSSIBLY WITH PICTURES OF AND/OR STORIES ABOUT DELIGHTFUL FOLKS. /demanding

* On the roster for the next movie night? V For Vendetta. a;lsjajlf YAY.

Some songs I am currently grooving to:

Paramore- Brighter
Flyleaf- I'm So Sick
Attack In Black- Like Young Leaves
R.E.M.- Electrolite
Planes Mistaken For Stars- Knuckle Hungry

Spent the evening eating banana cream pie and watching Empire Records with my sister. A most premium way to end the weekend, I feel.

And this is what I did this afternoon. )

I also bought Conor Oberst's solo album and it is beautiful like clear summer days and long empty roads.
