if you haven't noticed, i haven't updated this thing in over a month. i just felt like a change. hence, i started a new journal, if you want you can go check it out at cynicaldream . it's a lot more vague and rambly than this one, which was mostly about daily occurances and such.

see you there.

Matt Good [14 Sep 2002|12:50am]
Here by my side may angels
Here by my side the devil
Never turn your back on me
Never turn your back on me again
Here by my side it's heaven
Mm mmm...

Here by my side you are destruction
Here by my side a new colour to paint the world, ooh
Never turn your back on it
Never turn your back on it again
Here by my side it's heaven

Careful you be careful
Careful you be careful
(something muffled here)
Careful you be careful

won't you breath in
Won't you breath out
For it somewhere
And oh, that makes you a weapon
And you give up
You give out for it
It's only when-- oh that makes you a weapon

Never turn your back on it
Never turn your back on it again

Here by my side it's heaven

-"Weapon" (a new song by MG)

The concert kicked ass. Bif Naked was playing with him, she was all right I guess. I <3 Matt Good. He is my fricken hero, I adore him with all my heart. We were at the very front (but to the left side of the stage *sigh*.) Matt Good looked really attractive, it was awesome. I wish I could have met him, but I guess you can't have everything.

I'm dead tired. Good night.

Ted Koppel
Kurt Cobain
The Nanny

Easy, easy. Marry Ted Koppel cause he has tons of money, fuck Kurt Cobain cause he's hot and I like the grunge rockers. Of course shoot the Nanny cause with that nasal voice, she would annoy me to death in about 2 seconds.

Finally got all my school supplies and such, go me. School starts this coming Tuesday, which is kind of hard to believe, considering this summer seemed so short, and yet I didn't really do anything or go anywhere. It's somewhat depressing. I didn't even have a serious relationship this summer, only casual dating. Again, depressing. Overall this summer wasn't a total loss but nothing really good came out of it ever. I'm ready for a new year and hopefully completely new and exciting things to come.

you are matt good








you are matthew good. some people call you a cantankerous bitch, but you're actually just opinionated. you've got some good ideas floating around in your head, but a number of people think you're too much of an asshole and won't listen to you. you once created a place called "mattopia." you make stuff up alot. oh yeah, and take a shower, you sloppy motherfucker.



which charismatic canadian musician are you?


Hey, I happen to like Matt Good. He's an attractive man. I'm going to see him September 13th!

In other news, Gwen's back, which is good. Leigh Ann should probably be back sometime soon. Yay for people coming back.

Oh yes, and that picture really is me. I look freaky in it, because of a) the insanely happy smile and b) the black-white-red theme going on.

Even more boring than yesterday [24 Aug 2002|11:31pm]
[ mood | pensive ]

If that is humanly possible, of course. God, everyone better get their asses home from vacation before I drive myself nuts. The only ones who aren't gone are Mandy, Jenn and Hayley.

Tomorrow's Sunday. I despise Sundays. They just all out suck. Grrrr. Only one week till school. This is a bad thing, unless you change your perspective and then see it as a good thing. I choose to see it as a bad thing. This year should be interesting, if anything. I wonder if it will top my grade nine year for the Craziest Year.

Bah. Back to writing.

Ahhhh, a lazy day for me. I did basically nothing, talked to a a few people though. Finally, ff.n's back up so I posted the next part in my story. If you want to read the entire thing, you can find it here. I finished a drawing I did of myself and a few friends, it's cartoon-y but cute I guess. I just have to colour it now, then maybe I'll post it.

I feel like going for a bike ride. Maybe I will later.

Well, I went back to get my schedule switched, I finally got it worked out. I only had to switch a few classes too. Here's what it is now:

Semester 1:
Pd. 1- Civics/Career Studies
Pd. 2- Music
Lunch
Pd. 4- Math
Pd. 5- English

Semester 2:
Pd. 1- History
Pd. 2- Science
Lunch
Pd. 4- Beginning Winds
Pd. 5- Business

Now I have math with Gwen and business with Hayley which totally kicks ass! I'm so happy now, I know at least one person in every single one of my classes. Life is good ^_~

Well this weekend I talked to some of my friends and we all compared schedules. I have almost every single class with Mandy except for one, I have two with Gwen, none with Billy, none with Hayley, two with Jenn, one with Courtney, two with Stephanie, and the rest I haven't talked to yet. I'm happy that at least I know Mandy will be there if I don't know anyone else in the class. Which is cool with me.

I ended up staying up for 33 hours on Saturday, I slept for two hours at 7:00 and then went to bed around 1. Perhaps by the end of the summer I'll be able to beat my record :)

I'm starting to get excited about going back to school, I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not, but hey. I'm going to Canada's Wonderland tomorrow which will be fun, considering almost everyone's left me! :P I think I'm going to hang out with Jenn sometime this week, cause I haven't seen her in awhile.

By the way, this song I'm listening to (This Brilliant Dance by Dashboard Confessional) is so sad and wonderful. I love it.

News, news, news [17 Aug 2002|01:30pm]
[ mood | blah ]

Well, for starters, I got my schedule in the mail yesterday. Here's what classes I'm taking:

Semester 1-

Pd. 1- Civics/Career Studies
Pd. 2- Instrumental Music
Pd. 3- Lunch (it's a common lunch this year, oh the chaos!)
Pd. 4- French
Pd. 5- English

Semester 2-
Pd. 1- History
Pd. 2- Science
Pd. 3- Lunch
Pd. 4- Beginning Winds (learn a new instrument)
Pd. 5- Math

I'm thinking about dropping the French for a Communications or a Drama course, because I really don't like the teacher I have and I was having second thought about taking it anyway. Hopefully I can switch it without rearranging my entire schedule. I still have to call some people and ask them what they have.

I slept over at Gwen's house last night, we slept out in a tent in her backyard, it was fun, although we almost landed ourselves into major shit >:P Thankfully nothing bad happened though. We stayed up the entire night (well I did anyway, she slept for about 2 hours), so I've been up since 10:00 am on Friday (going on 28 straight hours without sleep and no coffee!) Surprisingly enough, I'm not even that tired. I usually feel more tired when I only get a few hours sleep.

This morning we went and got tickets for Matthew Good (he's coming here in September! Yay!) Bif Naked's opening for him I think which is cool cause I don't mind her music. I'm sorry, but am I the only one who thinks that Matt Good has a certain...sexual appeal about him? *cowers and hides* I want to make a shirt for the concert that says, "I hear Matt Good's a real attractive man" ^_~ Hehehehe.

Well that's all in my life as to date, I'm trying to stay up for the entire day today, so we'll see how long I can last without sleep.

Sweet merciful crap [12 Aug 2002|01:49am]
[ mood | nostalgic ]

Ahhhh, back into that nostalgic feeling all over again. Isn't it funny how one simple song can immediately bring you back in time? It's my own fault I guess for listening to this CD- it has a lot of songs I'll always remember on it. It's not a completely sad feeling- more wistful, wishing for things to go back to the way they were. Over the course of this year and all the things that happened, I died several times and was resurrected all over again (all in a metaphorical sense , of course.) The person I was will never live again and the person I am now will some time along the line also die. A few people have a lot to do with the person I've become. I'm sorry for rambling like this, if you knew the full story you'd probably agree. But I'm sure this mood will pass quickly, I'll feel better when I wake up...I hope...

*yawn* Ohhhh, why does everyone wake me up by calling me?

Even though it's 12:00, that's no excuse! ^_^

Well, I think we're going to visit Dan today, considering he's almost always dragged to his trailer every week. So this is one of the only times this summer we'll get to see him. Suppose I'll get ready, then *drags herself up and into the shower*

Today was a good day. I got to visit some old friends from public school, it was really nice out and I feel all right. So that's going good.

I hope this weekend me and Gwen can sleep in the tent. We want to sneak out after her parents are asleep *grin*.

Mental note- must make closet office. Sometimes the best (and fucked up and strange) ideas come to you in dreams.
