What a mess
Sunday. 3.6.11 6:42 pm
Two things I'm not pleased with. Well...more than two things, but two things that are easy to articulate and not too personal:
1) My room is getting annoyingly messy (and it's nowhere close to being all my mess).
2) My sleeping habits have degraded so much this past week that I've basically become nocturnal, which is sort of neat but sort of a pain in the real world.
3) My laptop has this really annoying habit of losing focus on a window I'm typing in when I activate any of the LOCKs...like caps lock. Basically I have to stop typing and wait more than a second for it to switch back before I can continue. It's really strange and nothing I've done to fix it has worked. I have to disable all the quickset notifications to avoid it...that means no telling when I switch any of the locks, change the volume, the screen brightness, etc. Sort of annoying.
Hey look! I thought of three.
Also Roomy keeps it too cold in here.
Started speaking with Lauren again. It's nice...I guess no hard feelings, which is a relief. A huge relief! We've actually only conversed two or three times. We don't have much to talk about I guess. I think what matters is that we are, in fact, on speaking terms. No need to strike up a conversation every time someone crosses my mind! Actually, that's sort of been my motto with a lot of people lately. Color me cautious. Might be seeing her, Em, and SuZZ at the end of Spring Break actually! I haven't seen Em since school began, and Lauren since...gosh, at least since summer began. So I'm excited for that. I hope SuZZ doesn't become jealous for my time! I can only take so much abuse from her friends, after all. Ha!
The reason I've been up so late is completely my fault (and completely worth it!); I've been doing some "partying" of my own. Future Roomy (Alex) and I went on adventures two nights in a row. First we went to IHOP with Roomy around 2:30 two nights ago, and had a ton of fun. That set up a craving for Krispy Kreme because we had to pass by it twice...so last night Alex and I went there grab some delicious cake (doughnuts). We brought along a mutual friend named Kyle and had a right old blast. Both times I went to sleep at almost 5 in the morning. And even before those escapades I've been up sort of late every night watching Shaman King (yup), reading, and listening to Daft Punk and Tetrafusion, so it's really starting to get to me.
More later...I have to watch this episode of Digimon (YUP) and go eat some dinner. Next time!
Face to Face
Tuesday. 3.1.11 12:11 am
"What's going on
Could this be my understanding
It's not your fault
I was being too demanding
I must admit
It's my pride that made me distant
I hoped that you'd be someone different
There's not much I know about you
Fear will always make you blind
But the answer is in clear view
It's amazing what you'll find face to face
I turned away
Because I thought you were the problem
Tried to forget
Until I hit the bottom
But when I faced you
In my blank confusion
I realized you weren't wrong,
It was a mere illusion
It really didn't make sense
Just to leave this unresolved
It's not hard to go the distance
When you finally get involved face to face"
I've started neglecting to wear my shoes. It's both painful and fun. Ah, life.

to clear my mind. It has become cluttered. I will do reverse this by attempting to spend more time stimulating my mind and not just surfing the internet.
That is a really embarrassing typo. That's what I mean. >.>

Inspired. By nothing in particular, I guess. It's just great weather! Can't go wrong with that. I decided to carry my camera around today and just take pictures of random stuff. And guess what I came across? I found a bird hanging out on the sidewalk that literally let me put a camera less than 2 inches from its face. I was like WHAT LUCK. It had some sort of bright yellow growth over an eye, which sort of ruins the photos though. :/ It was probably really sick, when you think about that. At least it had gone when I came past again.
I also managed to get some nifty pictures of squirrels, which I always want to do but never have the opportunity.
So I've been worried that I wasn't really finding my niche here at Tech, right? Like I wasn't making any good friends and I was sort of leeching from my roommate's social life. (Speaking of which he asked out his lady-interest a few days ago and still hasn't told me. I had to find out when people asked me about it and knew more about it than I did. -facepalm-) Well, not anymore! The biggest thing is that I made chums with a dude who I'll probably end up rooming with next year. I was beginning to worry because I didn't have anyone like that and I didn't want to just go random on it. We get along pretty well, but I'm actually not positive that we'd make the best roommates. I just don't know him well enough. That's OK, though!
But yeah I found that group Alpha Omega (I think I mentioned this already) and it has been absolutely awesome to hang out with them. I really miss my friends from youth group, but I also just miss Youth Group! It's great to have that again, even if I still miss my favorite hug-buddies. They're all really friendly...like, almost forcibly friendly. I didn't ever think that I could handle that but I've really grown to appreciate it. Once you get past the obligatory "Hey, you new here? You go to school here? How're classes? What'd you think of the talk?" type thing, most of the people I've encountered actually stick around and converse with me. The guys I've been hanging out with the most have really taken an interest in my life. They're just...sincere. And pretty awesome, besides. It certainly helps when you just get along with people, haha.
I formed a little study group with a few guys from my Calc II class, and that's been sort of helpful and very fun. We're the most terrible study buddies EVER, actually. But gosh we have a good time. So...I guess my niche is The Crazy Guy. Sort of shallow, but honestly? Sort of accurate. To a degree. I mean, hey, I'm not complaining.
Found a new band called Tetrafusion. I have never heard such a close approximation to Dream Theater before. They don't have quite the grasp of epic complexity in their music or deep subject matter in the poetry, but they are Quite Excellent. I can't get enough of their song The Deserter.
I made this:
Wind-blown by ~middaymoon on deviantART
It's from my most recent trip to Utah...I have a few more shots I am considering processing and/or posting. The canyon-lands in Utah are so beautiful. Gah. I want to live there. Probably not going to happen, but a guy can dream, right?
When I showed this piece to Ryan, he said, "At first when I read the caption I thought it said 'Mind-blown', but when I read it again I realized it said 'Wind-blown'. And then I decided that it was ACTUALLY BOTH!"
I gotta go grab dinner with some buds (great timing) so I must cut this short even though I feel like there's more to go into. Until next time? Yes. Yes, I think so.
