A few words
"When we describe the Moon as dead, we are describing the deadness in ourselves. When we find space so hideously void, we are describing our own unbearable emptiness."
~ D.H. Lawrence
"Is the meaning of life defined by its duration? Or does life have a purpose so large that it doesn't have to be prolonged at any cost to preserve its meaning?"
"Living is not good, but living well. The wise man, therefore, lives as well as he should, not as long as he can... He will always think of life in terms of quality not quantity... Dying early or late is of no relevance, dying well or ill is... even if it is true that while there is life there is hope, life is not to be bought at any cost."
"People will tell you nothing matters, the whole world's about to end soon anyway. Those people are looking at life the wrong way. I mean, things don't need to last forever to be perfect."
~ Daydream Nation
"All Bette's stories have happy endings. That's because she knows where to stop. She's realized the real problem with stories-- if you keep them going long enough, they always end in death."
~ The Sandman: Preludes & Nocturnes
"The road now stretched across open country, and it occurred to me - not by way of protest, not as a symbol, or anything like that, but merely as a novel experience - that since I had disregarded all laws of humanity, I might as well disregard the rules of traffic. So I crossed to the left side of the highway and checked the feeling, and the feeling was good. It was a pleasant diaphragmal melting, with elements of diffused tactility, all this enhanced by the thought that nothing could be nearer to the elimination of basic physical laws than deliberately driving on the wrong site of the road."
~ Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita
"It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend."
~ William Blake

Passive Aggressive Notes
We can look like we're painted onto the sky
Monday, July 26, 2010
I don't know if anyone noticed, but I was gone over the weekend. My mom drove us down to L.A. to pick up my grandma.
Long story short, I'm not single anymore.
It occurred to me that I should probably explain the title. When we were driving into L.A. it was smoggy, and I remarked that the buildings looked painted onto the sky. Somehow that came up again later when I was with him and the title is what I said.
OH YEAH and I've got to post some of my Hawaii pictures. I totally forgot because of the L.A. trip...

...Some of the longest miles of my life.
We went on an eight hour hike today. It's not necessarily SUPPOSED to take eight hours, but Lanipo can be pretty difficult. Slipped and skidded a lot because of mud.
Coming back was worse than going forward, I think. Getting to the top of the mountain wasn't easy or anything, but I didn't fall or get hurt. On the way back I fell on my knees into the mud and scratched my hands on some thorns. Nothing serious, but I could've done without all that.
The beginning of the trail is very rocky, so you have to climb boulders and such. It was HORRIBLE going back over that. The day had gotten hotter (we started at 7:40 AM, so it was cool at first) and the wind wasn't blowing. Alice had started back a bit recklessly from what I hear; she went fast but suffered for it by falling and getting some nasty scratches. She was quite far ahead of the rest of us (my mom, her friend, and her friend's brother-in-law), so I called her and asked her to wait at a bench that's near the beginning (before all the rocks).
I was so tired by the time I reached her.... man... I had to rest every few minutes and I felt like I was about to pass out. She seemed to have enough energy to trek onward, but I was panting and stopping constantly. X|
Anyway, we made it back to the car first, and rested for a bit. I'm definitely not hiking that again for at LEAST five years. (The last time I did it was when I was twelve or so... and I didn't finish because I twisted my ankle near the end)
My feet hurt so much right now... I have some pictures of our shoes before and after the hike. I'm going back home tomorrow so I can upload them then.
Shoes to ruin
Monday, July 19, 2010
We got some shoes from Payless today that we're going to use to hike on Lanipo. Alice and I got the same kind. :P
I'd show you pictures but... yeah... can't upload anything here. I'll be home in a couple days though, so I'll try to then.
My mom was out earlier today, and Alice and I were waiting around the house. We ended up watching some tecktonik videos. Remember that? My thing with tecktonik? Yeah well I never learned, but occasionally I'll watch a few videos. This one was new to me though...
EAT IT BACK!
Friday we're driving down to LA to pick up my grandma. I bought a shot glass for a friend (you'll get to see that too once I'm home) that I'm going to give to him while we're there. And... we're planning on hanging out some. Guess we'll see how that goes.
Oh also you know what WE FOUND NEURO LAST NIGHT YESSSS. It was pretty exciting for me. I got Bliss and Sleep. Alice got uh... the appetite-curbing one and a Bliss as well. Yum yum. Too bad I can't find them at home. I love interesting beverages. X|
I guess I'll go take pictures of random stuff now before I forget.
Out of state, out of mind

There's a gecko scampering around in here and it keeps clucking.
The clucking is kind of like really fast kiss noises.
Though not unpleasant, gecko clucks are not the most melodic of animal calls.
He keeps telling me he wants to drive his car off the road and crash into something. It worries me.
Then he says that if he lives I can come and visit him in the hospital. He says that since I want to help someone, I can help him. I tell him that's not what I mean when I say I want to help.
I'm not convinced he's going to do anything but I'm still concerned.
I think I might be a terrible person for saying I wouldn't ride the train for ten hours by myself to go see him in the hospital if he got into a tragic accident.
My friends were right when they said I don't have a filter...
I should have kept quiet.
I said the wrong thing.
I think he's upset now.
Music vs. Lyrics
Tuesday, July 13, 2010
In Music Genesis junior year we were asked whether we were more into the music or the lyrics of a song. They have somewhat equal importance to me, but I think I might lean towards music.
Evidence of this: some of the songs I listen to. :P
The more popular branches of electronic music are (in my mind at least) somewhat notorious for having terrible, cheesy lyrics a great deal of the time. (It's more obvious in the mainstream stuff)
Sadly, these are fairly decent when compared to the others I've ever heard -cough cough Around the World cough cough- but even so, they're sure not that inspiring.
"Move over, four leaf clover
Lady Luck, gimme a buck
Success is around the corner
Don't let it go to your head"
Of course, lyrics aren't the primary focus of the music, and I know that. A lot of listeners just want something with a beat that they can flail their arms wildly to as they jump around the room.

Half or most of the time, American Apparel's model shots look like pictures from somebody's illegal porn collection, but I do like some of their clothes.
It's just the, y'know, "I kidnapped this person and forced them to pose for me" look of the photos that's a little off-putting.
Also a lot of the models look seriously unhappy.
ANYWAY, Alice will be here on Wednesday! And then I have to go outside... fun fun.
I should start telling my mom I just don't want to get skin cancer. I wonder if she'd fall for it?
My uncle and I watched part of Speedy earlier. It's a silent film from 1928 and it was pretty entertaining. :P I think it would be nice to have a small collection of silent movies to watch with my future family... assuming I have kids...

by Sara Teasdale
Alone in the night
On a dark hill
With pines around me
Spicy and still,
And a heaven full of stars
Over my head,
White and topaz
And misty red;
Myriads with beating
Hearts of fire
Cannot vex or tire;
Up the dome of heaven
Like a great hill,
I watch them marching
Stately and still,
And I know that I
Am honored to be
Of so much majesty.
She's wondering why I care more about her than she does.
Why wouldn't I?

I was looking through a forum for INFPs yesterday night. Apparently all the girls pretty much idealize the type as like... woodland elves/fairies.
Oh man, reading that was just... weird. I mean, I completely understand (being an INFP and all that...), but it was just embarrassing to see it laid out like that.
Well um, moving on...
My mom got me a new journal! It's black and white on the outside and green on the inside cover... I'd take a picture to show you but I can't transfer files to this computer.
It would be really nice if I had my current journal with me though, since I haven't filled it up yet. I hate having forgotten it at home. :/
Too tired to think about much except for events and such and whatever automatically goes through my head. (Death and all that) Bleh. Well, boring entry, sorry.
