Finally over my cold, laughter is the only that’s filled my lungs lately, no pneumonia for this girl! Weekend overview…
Friday worked all day and into the night. Went out for a drink with my friend/supervisor (how does that always happen??) And i just have to say, I love this woman, she is an awesome young lady, but I really am reminded of why I do not have female friends in abundance. Me and this girl (she’s 23) get along great, she is a strong, beautiful and God-loving woman. We talk a lot about faith and church, work and activism, we have a lot of similiar views on society and all thats wrong with it, and I appreciate her ability to challenge me on things. But then this this whole other side of her. When the sun goes down or she has a drink (havent concluded on which one is the trigger) she turns into a raging whore. Starts talking about all these guys she’s talking to, ones she met at the club and hooked up with that night, shows me “pictures” of them and ones she’s sent to them..then makes it seem like I’m some sort of prude because I dont send pictures to guys. I am really just at a loss of words with this one. How can you talk about this wholesome good man that you want God to put in your life, then get skanked up headed to the club? As my friend Aaron says, “you put out the stink bait your gonna catch a catfish”.
Saturday I went to Nana’s, we met up with my Aunt and Uncle to watch my cousin’s piano recital. My Nana is so awesome, she is 75 and it better health then some people my age. I cherish every day I get to spend in her presence.
Later that night Shane came up and we drove into the City to watch my friends band play from Santa Cruz. It was at this cute little SF venue, 50’s music dance party upstairs, bands playing downstairs. It was so fun to just hang out and dance and see all the boys.
Shane, Roger and I went out to lunch on Sunday. I love having my two best friends together, such a good feeling being with them. After church, Tyler, his friend Daniel, and I snuck into an auditorium at school and hooked my computer up to the projector to watch movies. It was awesome. I am surrounded by such good men, so blessed.
an email i just recieved form my dad. in case anyone was questioning where I get most of my shit from. the big kahuna himself.
For Christmas I would like for one, some, or all of you to consider updating my Facebook page/account (whatever it’s called) to include pictures of me/us/you/others so that I can start boasting to all my old friends about how great life/family is. I have one lousy picture on my home page and I don’t know how to arrange/change/rearrange it or anything else. I’m starving for assistance so I can begin e-mail blasting all my old, overweight. gray-aged friends with stunning pics of family and eloquent words of sophistication to project the awesomeness of our family. I only want really great pics of me/you/us/others, to project star quality. Photo Shop is acceptable for use where appropriate. I also need some praise/affection/affirmation posts to seamlessly bind it all together. Don’t be afraid to use things like “happily retired”, “selfless”, “still madly in love with mom after 28+ years”, “natural born leader”, etc. I’m ready to let the world know who and what I am. No unflattering pics/words/posts will be tolerated. If you screw up my home page, there will be a heavy individual price to pay (can you say T-Rex status for life?). Remember……… T-Rex don’t like being embarrassed, he EATS his own.
Happy Facebook Holidays!
I have left my house twice today. both times to move my car from one side of the street to the other to avoid another ticket and $300 tow job. (the joys of city living)
I have also made said moves in outfits even I am ashamed of sporting.
Being sick really takes a toll on your fashion perception.
I slept in till 2PM, awoke to drink some tea and make car move #1, then slept again till 4:30PM when I had more tea, wrote two ten page term papers, and called my mom who told me to make a doctors appointment for fear that I might have pneumonia. I am convinced it is just a cold, but as mother knows best, I did have pneumonia when I was younger and having it once makes you more susceptible to having it again. For someone who’s biggest fear is drowning, I think pneumonia would have to be the most ironic way going out. Water filling your lungs, I mean you’re basically drowning in your own body. Oh the cruelty!
I knew a boy once who’s heart was too big for his chest, and caused a lot of serious health problems.. . so much irony in tragedy.
“Incredible courage to think for youself. you have to be able to think for yourself, you have to be able to cut against the grain get the distance from your peer group and not only that, but you have to have a habitual vision of greatness. You have to beleive in fact that you will refuse to settle for mediocracy, you wont confuse financial security with your personal integrity, you wont confuse your success with your greatness or your prosperity with your magnanimity.”
Tyler and I went to church last night at this place in Berkeley called Mosaic. It’s a lot of artists and awesome people. Besides enduring cheesy Christmas songs, I really enjoyed it. Just hearing someone talk about God felt so good. It’s like that feeling you get when you see an old friend, or hear a band you used to love in highschool, that familiar, feel-right type of comfort. As much as I love worship and being in the word, I have serious issues with Christians. There’s this odd, fake impression I get from a lot of Christians. Like theyre trying too hard.. to impress each other and God. Quite frankly, I come from a congregation where we celebrated our differences and flaws, brought them out into the open and said “yup, youre just as fucked up as me” and that was okay. that was comforting. Maybe its a race or class thing, I dont know. But middle class white people tend to be really boring and try to act like they have it all together. Look people, YOU DONT. and neither do I. and thats the beauty of it. thats the redemption of the cross. After the pastor spoke, Tyler and I started to clap, then stopped once we realized that no one else was….thats weird. I wish people wold just cut loose a little bit and not be afraid to express themselves or fuck up, I do it every day!
In other news, its dead week at school which means no more classes, just review before next week’s finals. I am writing a paper on how technology has influenced culture/generations/business/and politics. And another one on how my upbringing and “privilege” brought me to where I am now and who I am now.
I also got two more companies that I am sewing for now, and internship prospects on the horizon for Spring!
I have also discovered a new addiction, www.pinterest.com .. im warning, its bad .
