"singing is about sexual confidence" --hawksley workman
i think my dad was more right than maybe i gave him credit for. i have been feeling more confident and assured lately. not drastically so, i dont think anyone else would even notice the difference, but i feel stronger somehow. it's rather nice
also, lately ive been running into manch people around campus or whatever, and we're talking, and theyll ask what ive been doing and where ive been cuz they havent seen me lately. now while i dont think ive been less accessable than usual, this is strange for me. ive felt for a long time that that whole group, while they were always happy to see me, didnt really notice much when i wasnt there. i wasnt sought out, and i felt alienated. but now theyre asking me why i'm not around and i rather like that. i supose i should start seeing more of them
btw, i have been making more friends-only posts lately than usual. so those of you who read my journal but don't have one yourself, youre missing out. ner.
beggars in vietnam
i just made my 1st ebay bid ever, today. this spells TROUBLE
2 kates i know at school. both i'm good friends with. both i havent seen nearly enough of lately. i shall attend to this
i was thinking today, there are SO many songs that musically sound pleasant, but the lyrics are really sad. are there any songs the other way around? any nu-metal songs about butterflies and rainbows? nine inch nails written any tender love songs? i cant think of anything offhand that fits. also- what is the effect of songs like that? listening to a happy fun poppy tune and then you realize it's about being depressed and alone. it's jarring.

i find a lot of happy songs depressing... the Reading Rainbow theme song is #1 on my "depressing" list.

Nine Inch Nails . . . I used to be an expert . . . then I turned 16.
Nine Inch Nails DOES write tender love songs . . . consider Something I Can Never Have, which is very much a love song, or if you want to, consider the hack of a song that A Warm Place is. I always thought of that as a love song . . .

yeah, i just saw scott mclaughlin after thinking he was dead for 3 months. the rest of the manch crew may be dead for all i know, since i haven't seen most of them for almost a year. i said i'd drive to unh at some point, now i'm inspired to do so.
at some point.
oh, and i'm gonna go to vietnam and turn you in. $13 is fuckin sweet!! you'll like it there, i promise.
you definitely should come to unh yo. thatd be a blast
btw i meant to call and ask you abotu this when you said to do so in your journal awhile ago but then never did because i'm incompitent at life-- what is this big business you are doing?
mmm living in 'nam. that would be the life
