My internet has been down all week and I didn’t really miss it.
The summer I went to camp with Tabina all we...
Monday (so far)
Woke up feeling excited. Mom reminded me that today was the day to register for De Anza classes but the account was “on hold” so we had to drive over there. Stood in line for 2 hours, listened to M.I.A. while Mom talked to the woman and her son who stood behind us. Am now on the wait list for four Intro to Bio classes. Walked to Target with Boson. Ansh flipped us off gave us pie and...
Wishes or Fears
This is the third night in a row I’ve dreamt about getting my grades and every night they get worse. I’ve had the same people appear in my dreams for the past two nights. And yesterday was the first night I’ve ever dreamt about going to prom. It wasn’t fun and the music was bad.
I wonder what it must be like to be one of those caricature artists that are always hanging around wherever tourists are. Do you begin to subconsciously examine faces and pick apart their features? Or is it just a lens you look through that you can remove at will? I think that some people’s faces are more easily caricatured than others. In the case of mine I would emphasize my eyes because...
I couldn’t help myself, I started reading Everything is Illuminated and I started underlining all these passages so now I can’t return it even if I wanted to. (Which I don’t).

on the upside
I went to santana row today with nicole kenzie ansh and tsukii which was fuuuuun because we went to urban and I bought a black dress and a radiohead tshirt that says “you used to be alright what happened?” and 15 step is my second favorite radiohead song, no surprises being the first. We had burgers which took forever because we ate slow and oscar, our waiter, was having problems...
I just got back from Borders. My dad had his book group today so my mom and I went and sat in the cafe for a few hours. I looked through Fiction first and searched for Wodehouse but I couldn’t find anything. I grabbed Everything is Illuminated and then went upstairs to where the comics are. Everything there was crappy. It was either manga which I stopped reading when I was 11 or adaptations...
Note to Self
I went to Target twice today. Once with Tsukii to buy Kes a going away present. We got him “Malice N Wonderland” and a card where we wrote things about not getting caught in a drive-by shooting. Then the second time with Hitomi, Steff and Clarissa to buy Nutella and bread. We went to Alanna’s house and everyone had Nutella sandwiches. Everyone (eg. Nicole) always raves about how...
I have newfound appreciation for the weather in the Bay. I can’t deal with the heat that goes on everywhere else… Why don’t we have Waffle Houses on the West Coast? This needs to be remedied. Southern Baptist Churches are EXACTLY like the ones in movies. Like, with everyone singing and clapping their hands and shouting “Hallelujah!” in the middle of a sermon. ...
I watched House today and I cried during the finale. Whenever I cry during movies and shows I always think of how in The Catcher in the Rye Holden says, “You take somebody that cries their goddam eyes out over phony stuff in the movies, and nine times out of ten they’re mean bastards at heart.” And so I felt a little pathetic about crying during House. Maybe I am a mean...
My dad keeps on telling me to get off the computer
WHICH I WOULD BUT he deleted my Limewire folder so I have to transfer 3500 songs from my ipod to my itunes library which has basically taken all morning I just got my laptop back and I missed it I haven’t updated my ipod in a month and a half so I’ve got to a month and a half’s worth of music to download nobody is willing to drive me anywhere so whatever, I have nothing...

givemesomethingtoread: For years, women’s progress has been cast as a struggle for equality. But what if equality isn’t the end point? What if modern, postindustrial society is simply better suited to women?
Going to Nicoles house and signing yearbooks with people and eating peanut butter sandwiches and writing notes to Nicole with Kenzie and swimming is the best way to forget about how you bombed your math final
Well, finals are over. I went swimming for the first time all year today. Today was the best start of summer ever. It feels so so good to be free. I’m going to go watch TV now because I haven’t watched anything in about two weeks and then I’ll eat more peanut butter and sleep at 9 and wake up at 6 to go to school for about 4 hours. After that, I’m done.

“I guess I should tell you about the first time I had my period. My daddy was driving me back from summer camp, and I turned to him and said, “Daddy, I think I’m sloughing!” And he said, “That’s nice hunny.” And I realized, that he had like, *no idea*, what sloughing meant! So I explained to…
