Now Playing: Bright Eyes - It's Cool, We Can Still Be Friends

Something that'll stick with me for a long time is something Ismael told me last night as we debated several issues. Put simply, it's easier to say goodbye to someone when you're angry at them. I think a lot of people do it, I've done it, we'll all continue to do it.. and we know that's not the way to go.

And to be honest, I know I'm supposed to be "angry" or feel something other than a headache lately.. but it isn't comin. So I'm gonna work on what matters to me, and I'm gonna try really hard not to reach the level of anger that people think I should be at. I'm not up for playing dirty.. I'm not up for playing anything at all.

But yeah man.. how true is it that we love to burn the bridge before we part instead of leaving on good terms? I think I [and the world really] have been going about things the wrong way, because to continue this cycle is to perpetuate disappointment in all of our lives. And to perpetuate such negativity is to not live very happily [or peacefuly] at all.

Inevitably, we need to stop running. More importantly we [I] need to realize that if in the end, things really did not work out, it's okay. Life was never about who had the most friends. It's not about who had the most popular, or the cutest, or anything. Its about going through life experiencing different sorts of people until you come across somebody you can keep with you and rely on them the way you do family. I think I've found a few of those so far, and I thank God every night I have them with me, even if they're far far away.

It doesn't matter how many friends I have to lose in order to finally feel like I found something I can call my own. Hard to see myself say such a thing, but it's about time I saw life this way. There will be people I will fight tooth and nail to remain with and there's gonna people I'll look at and say to myself.. what's the point? I hope I don't sound too negative here.. I'm just trying out something I should have applied for myself a long time ago. Gotta let go of some things, of some friends.. but it's all my choice who I get in the ring with and who I walk away from for the sake of both parties.

So what DO you do when your roommate decides to get 5/6 naked, strut like a drag queen, wear tight women's clothes, AND look good in them?

You burn out your eyes and cry. The end.


Now Playing: The Postal Service - We Will Become Silhouettes

You bet your ass I found my old blog-esque thing.

I remember I was recommended this new concept called writing back in the midst of the 11th grade mess.. and I guess I haven't stopped since. What memories came thru my head when I found that damn infiniteprofile =). It's something I should print out and put in a shoebox. I'd like to keep a record of myself growing up I guess.

When I'm old enough, I wanna be able to look through these things, sigh, smile, and just think to myself for a while. It feels like forever ago when this would show up on my screen:

# of times this was digested: 2363
People who actually matter...or not: promisering42

Of course, I just loooove thinking and one of my biggest flaws is the inability to STOP. Hey, I blame the schools..

Sometimes I feel like I'm mentally ill or something. I mean dude, it's hard sometimes.. trying not to worry too much or feel so much or think too much. Most people make it seem so easy to mellow out and just BE, and it's something I gues I envy sometimes. I don't even know why I envy it when I like the way I process things.

Maybe cuz having so much on my mind to munch on really keeps me out of knowing what's going on around here, or anywhere. This inevitably means I sound insane a lot of times, or distorted... but hey. It comes with the territory.

Now Playing: NRG - Nah Uh Dduh Kae

Don't ask me how or when it happened... but at some point I came to realize that while at some points we are left to live life alone.. we always have backup. I guess I'm trying to say that more than ever, I really really appreciate and love all my friends. And yeah I especially miss quite a few. Bah this is what happens when you leave me to do homework alone. Or do anything alone. hahah. late

PS. Sometimes I really do think I got the best possible roommate. Even if he likes sleeping with the light on.


Now Playing: Judy and Mary - Radio

I had sooo much fun chillin with the guys today. The Bonayon Brothers along with Joe and I headed to In n Out for some grubbin and you ALL know how I love that place. Then we split and had a very hardcore slackers life assessment meeting, which is alwayz great cuz very few people are as calm and collected about issues like em. Well.. moreso Joe hahaha.

After a few hrs I fiinnnnnaally got to go to Joe's house and for some reason, I got this huge nostalgia feeling.. hmm. Anywayz it was a lot of fun, and since it isn't every day that I get to have some time to kick it with Joe, it makes all the more kewl. :P Oh and he looks like Narahana from Battle Royale these days. He achieved great feats today when he became one of the few souls to ever step foot into my place, but it's not like I'm inviting him again ever... until I can get good enough at Sou Calibur II to break his face in >:O. I'm so glad I came home...

Now Playing: Dashboard Confessional - Remember to Breathe

I got to talk alot with Nic over the fone today. I'm really sorry but I really needed to steal you away for an hour =). Thanks for the backup.. I really seem to need it eh? NicOOLLEE you make me look like this :-) <---

And I just got off the fone with Matthew. [!] Damn, it's like I use the telefone quite a bit these past few days. What a great convo too. I'm pretty sure we hadn't had such a conversation since last year. Oh Matthew the wonders that months of perspective can do. Man.. so much to write about in the journal! hahahah. Thanks a lot guys.. I feel a lot lighter now.

There's a lot going through my head [and yes it's negative =D] that ... if I don't process in the EXACT correct fashion I'll end up killing people over. I've gotten a LOT of perspectives and a lot of revealing information.. damn damn damn. I'm a pretty experienced person [having an old soul is a good thing here], but bah.. how can I make any move without either getting violent, yelling at my family, or running off like a loon into the sunset?

Enough though. Hey! Just a few minutes ago, my little sister was born 9 years ago. Here I am sitting next to her sound asleep. I love you Rebel!!!! ^_^ May He grant you many more years rebellion... beddy bore, beddy bore. These past few hours made me feel like... all we need in life is support and time. That's all folks.. that's all.

Now Playing: The Postal Service - Angel Pumping Gas

why won't this moment last...

You know yesterday was the day man. I realized how easy it is [for me right now that is], and why all the dumb elitist kiddies back in high skool did it all the time. And at first I felt super guilty because I fell into this system that I hated most people for following.. but damn it sure felt good for a change. [/vague]

I actually got my cards read to me last nite. Tarot cards. I was hesitant at first because I dunno.. I wasn't sure if it went against any of my Christian beliefs and standards. But fuck restrictions, I was wrong. It was pretty accurate and THAT flipped me out. I don't mean that 'vague' accuracy that would fit into most anyone's life either; this was pretty much telling me everything that you KNOW is something that belongs to me.. that I experienced. I dunno.. it was interesting to say the least.

Lately though the worst feeling I get is the feeling that any efforts I put into people will just end up as valuable as something effortless.. that you're gonna make me squirm before deciding to talk to me again. Well my friend.. that's not how friends should treat each other. lunch time..

Now Playing: Macy Gray - I Try

So, as Joey and Habib go off to eat food with Enza, I sit here watching my Daria and listening to this horridly catchy song. I'm pretty sure most not at UCR are not informed, but she and I stopped talking back in late November, over some prespectively ridiculous skirmish. Funny, I've been down these roads before so many freaking times.. and each time it feels both weird and individually strange. At this point, I indeed feel like little positions I used to hold were replaced by other people.. don't worry, it's not like I hold a grudge.

Don't get upset, but I notice these little usurps quite a bit. I mean duh, these things aren't really meant to happen on purpose.. but yeah. Things happen.. Once Meg decided to drop me out of her life completely, she found someone else, not that we were tied together.. officially.. in the first place. Once Peter and I stopped being friends, whatever time and such we spent together were spent back with his old group. Glen and Dan [both whom are friends] seemed to pick up where I was left off once Matt and Jenny dropped me out of sight. I dunno... do you ever notice these kind of things? I know people are irreplacable.. yet we try as hard as we can to fill in the voids left behind with a fresh new face, unintentionally or not.

Now, the times getting lost and getting food and sharing intimacies with Enza were given to Joey and Jesse. I like my buddies and all... but everytime they're called out to go somewhere, all I can think about is how.. that used to be me. Ugh.. this song won't go away. Don't worry... like I said, it's not like I hate anyone for what has happened. Hey methinks I should watch more Daria now.. oh and Matt, bluewave is the newwave 8-)

Now Playing: Our Lady Peace - Waited

One thing Luis has to do is seriously dedicate time to both his journal [thxx again Patra] and deciding what to put on this thing. I hate repeating myself (although we allllllll do it alllll the time) so that's something I gotta work out. Gah everything requires balance.. it's irritating trying to achieve such an ideal thing in anything. Anyway where was I ...

Back at UCR, and it's all pretty good again. I missed everyone I admit it ;-p and classes are great! I just hate the idea of having late tuesdays... m. In order to start this year off properly one has to be ambitious and SERIOUSLY make this year count. Hell, what we should** do in life is make the best of everyday, but we all know that we don't have that strong an ambition or willpower. yet. Ugh philosophical jargon from class... I missed this place fo sho.

You know what. We all have small epiphanies and realizations every day. It's a damn shame that we ponder 96% of them and then they waste away into nothing. I really should carry this lovely journal around with me everywhere.. I feel like I waste off sooo much that I could be explaining or sharing and it's about time I stop wasting my life "waiting til later" to do shit. Yeah.. everything has it's time and place, who doesn't know that? But just because that is so, doesn't mean we can be lazy about every damn thing. Without action all you have is a serious Hamlet complex. OH! I'm out.
