Twenty years

 Before anything else, a happy happy 20th birthday 
to the other half of Secret Skins---Jill!

Hope you'll find your Jack soon. Haha!

"Actually, I'm an overnight success, but it took twenty years."

Living in an age whose name I don't know

I'm standing on the stage
Of fear and self-doubt.
It's a hollow play,
But they'll clap anyway.

This is for lovers

I'm running away with you
from yesterday's news
let's leave it all behind
help me back to my mind

Err on the side of caution

Run away from all your boredom
Run away from all your whoredom and wave
Your worries, and cares, goodbye
All it takes is one decision
A lot of guts, a little vision to wave
Your worries, and cares goodbye.
(Slave to the wage, Placebo)

It's almost my birthday!

And I keep finding myself veering in between states of dread and desire.
Anyway, it is, unfortunately, just a wish list.

1. Round sunglasses

2. Clothes, clothes, clothes!
Boyfriend and tapered jeans, shorts and minis, huge slouchy tops and basics.

3. Long chunky necklaces

4. Lovely hats to escape the big bad sun

5. Shoes, of course

But I just really, really wish I pass Accounting.
And get B's or higher in all my other subjects.

Don't you wish you were turning the big 2-0 this month?

This is the Hour of Lead-

Remembered, if outlived,
As Freezing persons, recollect the Snow-
First-Chill-then Stupor-then the letting go-

You can't say no forever

But she expressed herself in many different ways,
Until she lost control again.
And walked upon the edge of no escape,
And laughed "I've lost control."
(She's lost control, Joy Division)

Not too long now.

Last Goodbye

Where were you last Saturday?

I know this post is four days too late but better late than never, yes?

The Eraserheads' final concert was, in a word, moving.
In a span of three hours, I became ecstatic, heartbroken, wistful, antsy, cheerful, impatient, excited, sad, reminiscent, surprised, amazed, and in love. It's a wonder my heart made it through.

I wish I could go back to those fairy book tales
Forget the real world a while
And seek the sees of the talking whales
A place of wishing wells and magic spells
Where everything starts out once upon a time
Long, long ago and ends happily ever after.
Wishing Wells, Eraserheads

Stalling technique No.52

School is getting in the way of life.
Ah, but who am I to complain?
(It's always been that way anyway)

So how's life treating you, stranger?

Time to March!

Ohmygod it's March, it's my last month as a teenager, I'm gonna be old soon.
Gotta pull myself together!
But I think I'll just have more fun this month.
I can act like an adult when I am one.

Oscar fever has almost died down, but I just have to post this.
Isn't Kate Winslet just so beautiful in this cover?
