I'm a 25 year old, highly over-educated, former straving artist, sell out - trying to regain some of her cred - and looking for love in all the wrong places. . .
"So why do you fill my sorrow
With the words you've borrowed
From the only place you've know
And why do you sing Hallelujah
If it means nothing to you
Why do you sing with me at all?"
-Damien Rice "Delicate"

it has been a very very very long time since I have posted a blog entry here. In fact I wasn't even sure if this account would still be here. A lot has happened since I last posted. . .
I finally graduated from college with a degree in Social Science and about 8 minors. . . well 8 might be a stretch, it's more like 6. . .
I have a grown up job now, working 9-5, with my own cubical and everything. . . I done sold out. . . and it sucks majorly. . . but it pays the bills and it'll have to do until I find something better
Well I guess there wasn't that much to share at the moment. . . I promise to try to do a much better job of updating this time arround

Well, yesterday my little beach town felt the effects (or is it affects? can never get that right) of Hurricane Rita. . .
Basically just lots of rain, wind, and a bit of a storm surge. More fun than problem. Since school was canceled for my sister I took her and her best friend down to the beach to watch the surf. . . and the surfers. . .
Unfortunitally the waves were more messy than anything else, and no one was catching much, it was fun to watch them try. . .
Did you know that 40mph winds mixed with beach sand HURTS?
. . . well it does

I learned a lesson this morning. . . Just because you may be able to paint pretty well on canvas does not mean you'll be any good when it come to painting a house
I got up way too early to help paint the posts in the front of my mom's house. She assumed that because I paint that I would be naturally good at it, boy was she wrong!! by the time I was done there was more paint on me than the post. . . and I was almost eaten alive by bugs!! YUCK!!
I wonder how hard it is to get house paint out of your hair?

as mad as social-lite with out a creditcard (rant)
I've had a day to cool down, but I'm still as mad as social-lite with out a creditcard. It's just wrong, don't say your gonna do something and then don't do, at least if you can't do it, or decide not to do it, just call a girl and tell her, so she doesn't have to try to plan arround something thats not gonna happen. . . you think a guy would be more careful about what he does when getting laid is on the line, but no, they're all just stupid!! at least the ones that are attracted to me are. . .
I'm suppose to go out tonight with me friends, but at this point I'm just so mad that I don't think I would be very good company. . . so now not only is my love life a joke, but it's affecting other aspects of my social life as well. . .
Damn him, damn him, damn him, damn him!!!

I need to rephrase something. . . I don't need a man. . . I need a GOOD man. . . one that calls when he says he's going to call, one who answers the damn phone when he tells you to call. . . one that shows up on time, one that calls when he's going to be late. . . one who calls when he's not going to show up at all. . . why can't I find a guy like that, why do I always attract the ones that can't seem get it together, it's not all the damn hard!

Lord, Help Me See the Error of My Ways
I'm having trouble getting used to my new (old) life. I'm not used to living with other people, or having someone wonder where I am when I go out at night. I feel very smothered, and I don't have to fix it.
I miss my freedom, I miss my peace and quiet. I need an escape, and I'm having trouble finding one. Every hour of my day is planned out for me, and I HATE it.
Oh, and more importantly. . .
I NEED A MAN!!!!!!!!!! NOW!!!!

One Sucky Friday Night!!!!!!
I know it is no longer Friday night, but it has taken me a couple of days to recover from the suckiness of that night :(
It was like all the things that on their on would make a night sucky happened all in one night:
My Friday night royally sucked butt!!
- My best friend was upset with me because there was a slight possiblity that I was going to go out with a boy that wasn't him (read: "Farewell My Island Lover" & "Random Note")
- The guy I was suppose to go out with had to work late, so we decided to go next weekend instead.
- My and my other friend's cars were towed from his condo, $130 a piece!!!
- I finally give up on the night, and I'm in an accident, not a car accident, the details are not important. But I was hurt, my left leg is all bruised up, and I have a sprained ankle. . .

I have this thing where time to time I drop off the face of the planet. . . I disappear, I don't tell anyone where I'm going. . . Half the time I don't know where I'm going anyway. . . Well, now I'm back. . . not exactly sure where I've been, but now I'm home, safe and sound. . . and bored out of my mind :(
Random Thing: My back-up boyfriend is off the market, and I'm sad. He's suppose to stay single forever, so I can use him when I need him. . . Doesn't sound like his current relationship is gonna be long term, but still, he's MY back-up boyfriend DARN IT!!!

Well, my days as an artist are numbered. . . in exactly one month my life of carefree creativity will be no more. . .
I knew this day was coming, it was the bargin I made in the beginning. . . Five years to figure it all out, five years to run wild, five years to find myself. . .
All I found was more confusion, but thats not a bad thing. . . without confusion and questions life would be very very dull. . . I may have to live this life behind, but I can take my confusion with me. I'm going to miss this life, this freedom that I have here in this place, but life goes on, it can't stand still forever and I must go along with it. . .
I can already tell that it's going to be harder to let go when the time comes, when this bubble burst. . . But thats the thing about bubbles, they don't last long. . .

I made a hat. . . My first hat. . . it's a little loop sided. . . I had an accident with my knitting needles and it appears that I didn't pick up all my stitches afterwards. . . but it still looks cool. . .
I haven't been real good at updating this lately. . . I've been spending too much time being a conflicted artist instead of a struggling one. . . hopefully finishing the hat is a sign of a change in that balance. . .
Here's to hoping!
