I've been dreaming a lot lately, dreaming of people from my past, these dreams are vivid and bizarre, but generally enjoyable. There are however, always going to be certain people from your past that you just wish would go away, whatever though, I can take it as it comes. The dream mainly involves a large house party, usually at Halloween, everyone I've ever known is there, there is a genuine sense of urgency always. I'm enjoying myself at the party, but it's never where I really want to be. I don't know what this means, but I wake up feeling all at once satisfied and restless.

I wish I had the resolve needed to force myself into things. I'm plagued by indecision and general resistance to change. I fear taking chances, save me please.

On an unrelated note, I want these jeans.

She said: St. Louis had enslaved me.

I guess Santa Ana saved me.
St. Peter had me on the queue.
The St. Paul saints they waved me through
I was all wrapped up in some video booth.
When I heard her say I love you too.

I've fallen entirely

I wrote my two weeks notice for work, I haven't given it to anyone yet, but I have it written. I feel like that alone should be motivation enough for me to find a new job. I've also decided to move back home until September, I really just want to be able to save enough money to pay for school upfront and not have to worry about slipping into student loan territory. This will be weird, and at times probably difficult, but I'll get by fine I think.

I'm really eager for the winter to start, snow and all that jazz. As it stands, it's not supposed to even really get cold anytime soon, these mid-teen days have been bizarre.

Lastly, the parade of lights is the Saturday, this has traditionally been awesome, and I'm for sure looking forward to it.

Yeah but still

I've never blogged drunk before.

First time for everything I suppose.

I'm moving home January 1st.

That is all

And the Oscar goes to...

| 11/3/08

Yes, it's a blanket, with sleeves, a blanket, WITH SLEEVES.

I can't help but think of the mutants from Planet of the Apes.

Wake up coughing tired with my face in my hands

For the second time in 5 days, I woke up and almost immediately threw up. This is concerning. I'm rarely any kind of sick, and now I'm pukey McPuke all of the sudden, I hope it isn't serious.

Halloween ruled, I got to hang out with so many people that I don't see enough, heart is warmed. I also got the chance to make an Obie Trice necklace. Best weekend.

I'm going to go to school in September, it will rule.
