5:35 pm - Something Positive
There are a million more important and interesting and relevent things I could be writing about right now, but I'm going to take this time to reveal my inner geek and advertise a webcomic. Shut up, it's brilliant and it's called something positive. Everyone everywhere should read it. www.somethingpositive.net. It brightens my life.


JASON: "Got it. Happiness equals misery. So what does misery equal?"
DAVAN: "Cupcakes."
JASON: "You must have a lot of cupcakes."
DAVAN: "Yes. Yes I do."

If that is not brilliant enough for you check out the website and find better, funnier, sicker quotes for yourself.

12:08 am - Happy Birthday Albert Einstein!
In honor of Einstein's birthday, I'm going to tell you all about an Einstein-related fact I heard today. We've all heard that most humans only use 8% of their brains, true? Well, apparently Mr. Einstein used 9%. Brilliance.

I, for one, am shooting for 11%. (I would be shooting for 10, but 11 is just such a much better word to say. Eleven. Eeee-levIn. eLEVin.)

Wish me luck!

7:31 pm - Whatever happened to Rock n' Roll?
I think I've forgotten how to do anything productive with my time.

Today I was seriously considering taking a year off to do stupid jobs and not worry about homework or responsibilities or learning shit for a while...
But then I thought, no, I don't have the attention span for stupid boring jobs. I'd get bored and wander off. I guess I will be going to college, then.

Crisis avoided.

And how is YOUR life going?

P.S. Am I a total dork for feeling successful when the spell check finds no errors?

10:22 pm - Eddie Izzard is some form of God
So I'm trying this keeping a livejournal thing again. I'm sorry to all of you I've ignored over the past several months.

News: I'm going to be 18 on March 1st. Holy shit. I've decided that on my birthday I'll buy a pack of cigarettes, a lottery ticket, and a porno mag, just because I can.

11:00 pm - *poke* it's a livejournal account ... wow.
So. So, um, wow it's been a really long time since I've updated this. I'm surprised they're actually letting me (I expected to have one of those evil lines slashed through my name by now). But yeah. So. Hello.

So, so in the some odd five months since I've last updated, what's happened?

- I made it through junior year. woo-hoot! I'm officially on my way to seniordom.

- I turned 17 on March 1st. I'm officially on my way to legal adultdom.

- I wreaked havoc on the Methodist church. Ask for details later.

- I cut almost all of my hair off.

- I decided to write a novel in a month.

I haven't actually written a novel in a month yet. I'm planning to next month, though. Yeah, I'll write more about that later too. So, wow. I've missed this!

11:46 pm - RIP Hunter S. Thompson
We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold. I remember saying something like "I feel a bit lightheaded; maybe you should drive...." And suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, which was going about a hundred miles an hour with the top down to Las Vegas. And a voice was screaming: "Holy Jesus! What are these goddamn animals?"

- Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson.

Oh, fuck.

It's late again and I'm not sleeping. Checking my friends list at one in the morning. It's masochistic, because I stumble across things that cut me...

I wish I could be more specific.

The point is, I shouldn't let people, person, one person, I shouldn't let words that weren't even meant for me have such a huge effect.

It's stupid how easily I hurt.

I need to grow some tougher skin, now.

7:41 pm - reality break
Ok... so I just realized that in a year and a half (18 months, about 72 weeks, roughly 504 days, almost 12,096 hours shit shit shit) I'll be off to college. If everything goes the way it's supposed to, I'll be moving out in a year and a half.

I realized this as I was figuring out when exactly I could get my drivers license if I started NOW (thank you very much, Yael) and realized I could have my permit within weeks. I could get my license in a matter of months. This shouldn't seem like such a big deal, because honestly I've been telling myself since I was eight that at 16 I'd be able to drive, but SHIT, doesn't that mean I have to learn how? Doesn't that mean I'm getting old?

I mean... ugh. I don't know how to explain. It's like... it's that... it's like, I'm going to be seventeen in just a little over a month. And maybe it's me, maybe it's me flipping out again, but there goes my childhood. And, God Damn, I'm going to have to start being responsible. And, holy fuck, I'm going to be moving out in a year and a half.

My little brother has started keeping a list of everything he wants to do with me before I leave. It's all I can do to not choke back screams as I assure him that "yeah, sure, it'll be ok. we'll do it all." I'll be taking him to six flags, and sure, at some point we'll visit Canada, eh? Oh man. This is all... it seems to be...

Because time won't slow down, no matter how hard you beg, not even for a second. And it seems like the hours creep by and every awkward moment lasts an eternity, but really, I'll be an adult in a year and a half. I should stop freaking out now. But it's like getting swept down a river I can't control and you can paddle or you can throw up your hands, either way you're going to hit the rapids.

And I should learn not to fear white water.

10:56 pm - Fuck you, you fuckin' fuck
Is it bad that I want to lose it? I want to just completely lose control sometimes. Ha, it's funny and it's stupid, because everything is going so well right now... everything is just fuckin' perfect, and I have the nerve to envy the girl in "Thirteen." Stupid. But, you know, it's the rock stars who commit suicide. And maybe I'm just another Richard Cory, begging for an end to the monotony of always being perfect.


I'm being stupid. I'm not suicidal or anything dumb like that. I'm being over-dramatic. I just... I just wish sometimes that I smoked. That I did something just stupid and irresponsible. Fuck, I hate being responsible. I just want to lose it, I just want to fucking...

I don't even curse. Not really. Not in real life.

Perfection is fucking bullshit.

I should just be grateful that (I am where I am, that things are going so well. Damn. What a stupid... I wish I had better words.

I'm happy. Honest.

11:53 pm - The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
So I've been listening to Simon and Garfunkel all day today. It's been a good day. Except I feel the desperate need to write that, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls," everywhere. I mean, everywhere. I want others to share in the genius that is Paul Simon.

I'm hoping if I ignore it it'll go away.

Things have been really good lately. I'm actually surprised... I'm getting things done. And I really like my classes. I mean really! It's crazy! I fucking like school! I fail as a teenager. That's it. They're going to make me return my insolent glare any day now.

Oh, and I have all of next week off, because we don't take the regents. I think that's how it goes... at least I don't take the regents. I might have to next year... but for now, hey! Week off! Woo-hoot!

Mari, Yael, Anat, anyone else reading this - we should DEFINITELY do something that week. I mean it this time. I'll come crash your regents tests and we'll hang out afterwords. You can come watch me get my nose repierced! If I find money somewhere...

aaaaaahhhhhhh. Life is good.

Some say there's no such thing as magic, but I have to disagree.
That's as ignorant as saying that there's no such thing as lies.
Magic's just a word for things that we don't understand,
and with every ounce of truth you learn a bit of magic dies.

The Great LiveJournal
Outage of 2005

During the outage I realized that other people do in fact live in my house.

What did you do?

Brought to you by geek-foo

I actually wasn't too bothered by the lj shortage, but this result was hilarious. Oh, by the way, it's 2:45 AM, but I am awake, because I have school tomorrow, and I am not prepared. Huzzah! I have absolutely no intention of going to bed at all tonight. Double huzzah!

7:28 pm - We're all screwed, but don't ask me to explain.
Today my class went to see a presentation by the New York City planning commission about a plan on the west side. I don't know if I'm explaining this clearly, but basically they say that in order to remain a competitive business district, New York City is going to have to come up with 68 million square feet of office space by 2025. As I'm sure most people know, New York City, especially Manhattan, is completely full. There is absolutely no room left at the inn. Except in this little 3x14 block area on the far west side where the MTA keeps its trains. It's train yards, dilapidated warehouses, generally abandoned area. This committee says that we need to take this space and create a new midtown, a new business district for the city, complete with sky-scraper office buildings and a Jets stadium.

I don't want to get into the specifics, but this horrifies me. The idea that we have all this space and the best thing we can think to do with it is create more office buildings... I don't know. It seems wrong. There are homeless people. There are - look, the city is full to the brim, especially Manhattan. What about affordable housing? I'm so upset. Because, see, if it's true what they say about office space and needing more, we're always going to need more. That's the nature of capitalism, isn't it? It will always be expanding, and we're always going to need more space and more offices and more... and we're going to run out. We're going to completely run out of places to build these office districts, and what then? What we're doing is making New York City a city of the cooperations. Who will live here? Who the hell can afford to live in New York, anyway?

I'm not explaining myself well. I'm just really upset. It has to do with industrialism, and this play I saw last night, and it's all connected, I swear. And it makes so much sense in my head, and I don't know how to say it, but it's a problem. It's a really big problem and I don't know what to do. I don't know even how to start. I don't know how to make it better. Have you ever felt like.. fuck. Fuck it. I can't find the words.

I'm So Tired

I'm so tired, I haven't slept a wink,
I'm so tired, my mind is on the blink.
I wonder should I get up and fix myself a drink.
No, no, no.
I'm so tired I don't know what to do.
I'm so tired my mind is set on you.
I wonder should I call you but I know what you'd do.
You'd say I'm putting you on.
But it's no joke, it's doing me harm.
You know I can't sleep, I can't stop my brain
You know it's three weeks, I'm going insane.
You know I'd give you everything I've got
For a little peace of mind.
I'm so tired, I'm feeling so upset
Although I'm so tired I'll have another cigarette
And curse Sir Walter Raleigh.
He was such a stupid git.

The Beatles, man. I'm slowly discovering the genius.

11:59 pm - WOW it's been a while
Ack! I've been a bad lj-er! Oh well. Such is life.

Speaking of which, I have a few thoughts:

- Paul Simon is (was?) a lyrical poetic genius, highly deserving of all praises possible.
- Waiting for Godot is crazy. CRAZY. I mean, completely and totally INsane. Over the brink. And yet, strangely awesome.
- Homework is silly, and should be ignored.
- Happy New Year three days late!

That about covers it for now. Hope everyone is well. :)

I should (superego) be trying (self-esteem complex) to complete (perfectionist streak) the homework assignment (expectations, future at stake, authority figures, help help I'm being repressed!) that I haven't started yet. (Procrastination.)

But it's cool.
I'm not panicking.

12:24 am - Wise words from Terry Pratchett
May 4, 2001
In his experience, many of the world's greatest discoveries were made by men who would be considered mad by conventional standards. Insanity depended on your point of view, he always said, and if it was the view through your own underpants then everything looked fine.

April 23, 2001
Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying "End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH," the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.

April 16, 2001
Nine-tenths of the universe is the knowledge of the position and direction of everything in the other tenth. Every atom has its biography, every star its file, every chemical exchange its equivalent of the inspector with a clipboard. It is unaccounted for because it is doing the accounting for the rest of it.

Nine-tenths of the universe, in fact, is the paperwork.

12:48 am - Because all anti-war protestors are natural animal-lovers.
I went to a protest tonight in front of Hillary Clinton's office building. It was hosted by United for Peace and Justice. It was... it was great, actually. I walked just in front of the drummers, ambling in time with this heartbeat, this rhythm. I walk most comfortably in front of drummers.
The people on the sidewalk watched us as we went by, but being New Yorkers, they didn't stare. Of course not. They were very nonchalant about the whole thing. "Oh yes, there goes another one of those protest things. They do make quite the racket, don't they? Look there, I almost spilled my double mocha latte!"
The really funny thing was, we were shouting and chanting and banging on these plastic buckets like drums and generally carrying on, and then we started to walk by this long line of those horse drawn carriages, and one of the horses got antsy. And all of the drumming and shouting and chanting stopped as we quietly shuffled past the horses. As we got to the end of the line someone called "LAST HORSE!" And a cheer went up and the drumming started again. I find that hilarious. If only the police knew all they have to do is bring a few skittish horses with them to a protest, we'd all shut up.
