my birthday was a fun time, thanks for all who came out. I liked the part where we were the only ones at cellblock and therefore had the dancefloor to ourselves. and when that bro went off in a huff when i said that i don't give my number to guys that i just met in bars but that he could have my email address.

I went to an archive entry today for kicks. Each time I do so I feel that I used to be far more articulate and mentally stimulated. I don't know if it's a lack of confidence or surroundings or simply a natural deterioration (or in some weird way progression?). Maybe it's like photographs, when you look back on them you always think that you were so happy then, but you have to smile in pictures. I guess one cannot ever be sure.

I'm graduated and it's quite surreal. I'm still at school but almost all of my stuff is gone. I worry about what going home is going to do to me, and about whether or not I'll ever be able to push myself into taking the next step in my life. I guess we'll see.

I still miss things that I shouldn't. Ok, person(s). I'm hoping that I just need some good distractions or something new in my life. I know though that's only a temporary fix. None the less,either would require me taking my doubtful finger off of the pause button.

This weekend I went down to Pittsburgh for Heather's wedding. (crazy, friends marrying, i know). It was busy and at times frantic but fun. The wedding itself was very fast, and had a coctail reception so it was very short, ending at 3 in the afternoon. it was a good time though and very fitting of Heather and Tom. The photographers took silly pictures for us et all. Goes to show i guess growing up isn't always a 180.

On friday we went to the brillobox which I LOVED. Definately a hipster joint but it was fun and we danced a ton to cool music. Makes me think a little more about Pittsburgh for an option after I graduate.

I was telling a friend from the wedding today how I always look at the could-be or if i would have situations in life and he gave me an epiphany. He said whenever he imagines those scenarios, he then imagines getting hit by a truck in them. awesome.

damiera is playing in fredonia on the 20th! i'm sooo excited! ah!

Dear everyone, I'll fill you in on details of happenings later. But alas, in short, my month in Italy is coming to a close. In addition to living in Florence I've been to Rome, Venice, Cinque Terra (moterosso) and had my fill of some adventures. I've even had an italian friend ask me out to "talk about our feelings" (i graciously declined...) Anyhoo, I come back this friday the 3rd and my parents leave the morning of the 5th, so please make plans to move in for a week then, no...seriously. I could use my friends to aid me with reverse culture shock and the stark contrast of being surrounded by people and busyness 24-7 to having a whole freakin farm to myself.

ciao belli.

Here i am in Italia! Ciao! The city of Florence (firenze) is pretty fantastic. Everything is old and lovely, except for the juxtaposed graffiti and such, which is still interesting. My apartment is awesome. High ceilings and plenty of breathing space. The hardest part of the trip was doing the aeroport thing alone and having my luggage lost for half a week, which luckily I just got today, so everything seems to be coming together. The gelato is excellent! I have photography and italian one. My italian seems to be coming along slowly but my photo teacher seems excellent. I tried taking some pictures this morning but I'm pretty sure there was nothing golden among them, in my trying to avoid the cliche. but whatever pictures i bring home, i assure you florence is an exciting place. There always seem to be things going on in the city. One night we went to a wine tasting in Tuscany. Tuscany is the most beautiful place of all; I could live there someday. Green hills of vineyards sprinkled with old charming houses and castles (i went to a castle) our wine guide, Giono was especially captivating and charismatic; i could see why. Afterwards we returned to florence and found a large circle of people gathering for a bongo drummer. women (and a few men) would go in the center and dance. wondering around the city we always seem to accidentily take the long route, hopefully we'll get it soon. Everything is expensive but the food is delicious. I've had pizza three times and all three times it was different. (thin, thick, medium) ::shrugs:: One thing is that the tourists here outnumber the actual italians, which is a little unsettling, even though i fit into that category. I have a rented phone if any of you want to call me, i know it's free for me and i think it is for you too? tonight i'm going to an opera. for now off to lunch and class.

ciao!

So summer brings me back to this place spewing words of un-wisdom across the net. so it goes! Sorry these are usually more for me than anybody else, maybe i'll have a hero of the week or something to try to ammend that slightly?

And as always instead of new years I have summer goals, this year, more specific in hopes they'll not succumb to lazyness:
as usual:
Paint More
-hopefully starting with a painting for kristin! and others maybe..
TV less: not a problem at school, but one at home. I'm going to cut it down to 4 times a week and then go from there...

-rent movies (an easy goal!)
-find obscure movies i want (a harder goal)

-spend as little money as possible!!!! keep my eye on the goal (ITALY!)
to do this, -barter as much as possible and get freebees

-volunteer more (i never volunteer, and this makes me sad)anybody want to be a soup kitchen buddy? (or any other kind, habitat? I'll drive if you come to my house or someplace on the way
which brings me to
carpool more, without being an inconvience (tricky?)

-get my ass in gear for getting my visa (last obstacle besides money to italy)

-eat vegetarian as much as possible (easier at school than home!)
cook as much as possible (these will go hand in hand) i asked my parents if i could cook once a week. friends would be welcome b/c i realize that would be funny, even if it would be awkward because my parents aren't used to the friends at our house thing.

-try new things

-sew (there's a t-shirt revamping book that i wanna get, but this goes against spending money, but maybe this will limit me buying more? hmm) stitch & bitch, anyone?

-eat better
phase one: no more candy excluding chocolate. chocolate only 5 times a week or less (sounds easy but is hard for me!) this means more fruit i guess...

-stay involved with amnesty stuff, plans for next year, action taking online...

-make an effort to hangout with friends more, last summer before graduation guys!

-learn as much italian before july as possible

-be more respectful to my parents while trying to establish as much independance as possible (impossible goal?)

-ride my bike or walk everyday

-read more


I'm excited about this summer. Even though I'm still in my parents house which can drag me down and I have to work at a corporation that i equate with the plague of erie (at least it's not walmart), it's all worth it when i think of how i will be in florence in july. In June I turn 21. the week after i get back from italy my parents will be gone for a week (party at patty's!). this summer already has so much more to look forward to than usual. It's so hard to believe this is my last summer before the real world. Let's make the most of it!

[music |League, tomorrow is forever, sleeping kings of iona......]

I'm looking for a song to fit the scholarship essay to study abroad ("What one song would you bring with you on your Ipod or on CD to serve as the soundtrack to your study abroad experience? Why?"). what a random essay question.

and i stumbled back into listening to my old music loves

and i think there is no better feeling than i have felt
the one that i get transported back to
when listening to music that i lived for
i feel the same all over again

It's a wonderful thing to stop listening to music for awhile and become distracted by new muses
and then to come back and have all these feelings arise with the old loves just like they did before, it's like time travel.

i don't know whether art draws people into it's own world, or if it brings them closer to our world
but either way i think that's the feeling of life epitomised. and feelings like this (but in relation to people, which art is, feeding from and into) are why people obcess and argue and agree and love....

:)
