i think melted twix might just be better than a normal twix. i did not enjoy writing that synthesis essay today. seriously, architecture? should've done what vicky did and just wrote to myself. i've decided, i am completely in love with our apush shirts. like....really. i don't think you can fully comprehend how happy it makes me. weird, right? yeah, cause i just realized what i wrote. whatever. walking to dairy queen in the heat for a $2 sundae is always worth it (as long as i have a car ride back). i watched a baseball game with kimly today. reminded me of last year and how much we used to hang out. i need more kimly time. i can't stop listening to this freaking song. dude, prom is less than a month away. that's a little scary. my pinky toe hurts. i need water. "better yourselves!"

"learn how to play!"

this is what kevin and i do in cluster when we find random things saved on the desktop of my computer. obviously, i won.

the moon...

you don't normally think about it, and it doesn't really seem like it serves a purpose to you. but still, from time to time, you look up at it. and it makes you feel a little bit better.

whether or not.

"i'm not nearly as poetic as i need to be to express, explain, or demonstrate what you mean to me. you're a golden ocean on a shore of bright white sand. i can feel your waves around me, take me by the hand, here on the sand.

and i'd wait until forever is through. whether or not you love me i'll be loving you. i'll wait until forever is through. whether or not you love me i'll be loving you. i'll be loving you.

in a complicated world you bring simplicity. cause when everybody's talking you're just listening. i've dreamed a thousand dreams and still nothing compares to the feeling that you give me when you're standing here. i don't care if it's fair or not.

i'll wait until forever is through. whether or not you love me i'll be loving you. i'll wait until forever is through. whether or not you love me i'll be loving you. i'll be loving you.

another day another dollar. another day to know you're answer. oh, my love. when will i have her here in my arms.

i'll wait until forever is through. whether or not you love me i'll be loving you. i'll wait until forever is through. whether or not you love me i'll be loving you. i'll wait until forever is through. whether or not you love me i'll be loving you. i'll be loving you..."

"i caught the sun!"

ice cream is my best friend. it's just too good. simple breezes coming through my window seriously keep me from passing out. this weather change is ridiculous. although, i probably wouldn't think it was as ridiculous if i had spent this weekend at the beach. oh well. late start tomorrow morning. how nice. late starting ever monday morning next year. how nice times fifty million. ihop will become our second home. yum. longboarding needs to be done soon. can't wait until summer. i've been sneezing all day. darn you, spring allergies. i really want some more ice cream right now. i can't find my silver earrings. oh well. you know what that means.

lights, camera...

and...action. throngs of people brush past her. faces become a blur, but she focuses here and there. she watches them. some somber, some cheerful, others pensive or arguing. but at the same time all human. the time and place she doesn't remember. it probably wasn't significant anyway. what was important was how she felt.

the movement coming from every which way had her feeling preoccupied. but she wasn't doing anything except standing there. feet planted on the ground - watching. she wasn't sure what she was looking for though. maybe she was waiting for something to surprise her. but somehow she knew she was supposed to be standing there. standing in that exact spot and watching. somehow she knew something would come.

it was like she was watching some weird form of a movie made about her life - past, present, and future - right before her eyes. the only thing was that...she wasn't in it. still standing there, she looked for herself. maybe just someone that resembled her. someone that was pretending to be her. but she was never found.

she stood there, God only knows for how long, and still waited. it was as if she was standing behind the scenes of her own life. then finally, it came. the thing she had been waiting for. a little girl, probably around 3 or 4, was standing about twenty feet in front of her. she was eating an ice cream cone and had apparently been watching her for some time; just watching her stand there. when the little girl saw that she finally realized she was watching her, she stopped eating her ice cream cone. they stared at each other for a second, then the little girl walked up to her and whispered, "my mommy always told me if i ever got lost not to be scared. just look around. you'll find your way."

then she walked away. end scene.

oh, the places you'll go.

you’re on your own and you know what you know.
and you are the one who’ll decide where to go.
you’ll look up and down streets, look ‘em over with care.
about some you will say, “i don’t choose to go there.”
with your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet,
you’re too smart to go down any not-so-good street.
and you may not find any you’ll want to go down.
in that case, of course, you’ll head straight out of town.
it’s opener there in the wide open air.
out there things can happen and frequently do
to people as brainy and footsy as you.
and when things start to happen, don’t worry.
don’t stew. just go right along.
you’ll start happening too.

you know how when you go to carnivals and stuff and you get cotton candy (a.k.a pure sugar on a stick)? it's kinda like that - sweet. and then you know how after you eat the cotton candy, your fingers are practically all sugar coated? it's kinda like that - annoying. so then after you realize you have sugar all over your fingers, you lick them to get the sugar off and it feels really gross and you don't know what to do. it's kinda like that, too - sticky.

it's like everything all in one. the problem of having sugar stuck to you wherever you go. the weird feeling of having fingers that can't touch anything else. but most importantly, the sugar high that leaves you feeling happy.

yeah, the situation's kinda like that.

mhmm. that's what today was. i stayed up until 1:30 last night working on mg, so i was extra loopy. luckily, so was jameson. basically, what we did all day was laugh at every single little thing. now that i think about it, over half of the stuff i cracked up at wasn't even remotely funny. except the best thing ever, which was mr. j's comic he shared with us. classic. i CAN'T WAIT until today is over = i'll be done with my paper. and i will be multi-very-happy. :)))))


you know what i love doing? i love doing stuff that makes me go, "good job, athena." out loud. call me crazy.


haha, that provided for a good laugh.

no, u!

my 'u' key is being really retarded today. so whenever i type 'you' or 'uhhh', it ends up as 'yo' and 'hhhh'. the first makes me seem like either a gangster or a pirate and the other sounds like i need my inhaler. how UHHHnoying.

upon closer inspection.

upon closer inspection, my room really isn't that messy. it just has a lot of stuff. my dog's toenails are really long. but she has a lot of hair on her feet, so you wouldn't be able to tell. there's a spot on my wall where paint has chipped off. it looks like a flying squirrel. the zipper on my backpack is broken. it's kind of really dangerous for my fingers. i don't have a dent on my wrist today from my hair tie. i guess my hair tie likes me today. there's a lot of dust on my computer screen. i bet if i cleaned it things would look a lot different. (silly little things, these are.)

upon closer inspection, my heart is happy. life is good. and prom is next month! whaaat.

only one thing's gonna set you free.

(i could watch this movie over and over and over again - and i have.)


sweet home. i haven't had a day off in a while. it's nice. but at the moment i'm a little bored. so, of course, i resort here. my head is better, but when i woke up my stomach wasn't all that thrilled. no idea what's going on with me, but all seems well now. hopefully it will stay this way.

seeing as my brain is now on and functioning, i can better reflect on the world and not be so bitter towards it (see post below). one thing i noticed is that i like hearing birds chirp in the morning. if you know me, you probably know i'm not a big fan of birds. but when i'm lying in bed in the morning and nowhere near enough to them to be picked as their target for a toilet, they're not that bad. (but it's definitely weird hearing birds chirp at 11:30 at night. those were some seriously confused creatures).

interesting note #2: mothers have a strange psychic ability that i will never be able to figure out. (until i become one, i guess?). but really. it's cool and weird all at the same time. i woke up this morning and when i opened my eyes i kind of just laid there for a few seconds then i sat up trying to figure out if i was feeling better. and as soon as i sat up, my mom walked in my room and goes, "are you feeling better?" no idea how she knew i was awake, but she did. and they always seem to know where every single little thing is. even when i think that my mom wouldn't know where that something is in a million years, i ask her anyway cause i'm usually proven wrong.

in conclusion, the birds are chirping and my mom just walked into the house. the only thing i'm concluding from this is that i need to make a birdhouse for my mom. looks like my brain is shutting down again. blast!

i feel...very strange right now. in a not good kind of way. my head has been feeling lightheaded all day and now it's just starting to hurt. while i was watching conference this morning, i was listening to holland (i think it was) speak and suddenly...there was two of him. maybe i was just getting tired. who knows. but my nap didn't help at all this afternoon. it was around an hour (from 5 to 6) and i probably would've slept longer if i hadn't gotten a phone call. but when i'm up, i'm up and the weird feeling still didn't go away.

the continuous staring directed at my computer screen probably isn't helping, but that's not my fault. blame whoever invented the multi-genre paper.

...then throw rocks at him. large ones. then he'll get to see how it feels to be lightheaded.

when the day met the night.

"when the moon fell in love with the sun, all was golden in the sky. all was golden when the day met the night. when the sun found the moon, she was drinking tea in a garden under the green umbrella trees in the middle of summer. when the moon found the sun, he looked like he was barely hanging on. but her eyes saved his life in the middle of summer.

so he said, "would it be all right if we just sat and talked for a little while if, in exchange for your time, i give you this smile?"

so she said, "that's okay as long as you can make a promise not to break my little heart or leave me all alone in the summer."

well he was just hanging around then he fell in love and he didn't know how, but he couldn't get out. just hanging around then he fell in love.

in the middle of summer, all was golden in the sky. all was golden when the day met the night. all was golden in the sky. all was golden when the day met the night. when the moon fell in love with the sun. all was golden in the sky. all was golden when the day met the night..."

"i have to live with myself and so i want to be fit for myself to know.
i want to go out with my head erect.
i want to demand all men's respect.
i can never hide myself from me.
i see what others may never see.
i can never fool myself.
and so whatever happens,
i want to be self respecting and conscience free."

hellooo, john krasinski! i need to see this movie.

a viking story.

the funniest thing ever happened today in cluster....

earlier in the week mrs. hale had told us that we were supposed to have a fire drill today during cluster, so i was already not looking forward to it. fire drills = total waste of my life. anyway, we're all in cluster and after mrs. hale took roll we just waited to be dismissed to the field. me, tara, and ryoo were in the back of the room just chilling and talking about how lame this was and whatnot and mrs. hale came and joined us in our little whine-fest. talked for a while, blah, blah, blah, and then basically everyone in our cluster declared ourselves burned to a crisp. we had already been waiting for almost 20 minutes.

so then ryoo calls andrew and brian over and we decide to play a game. we (me, ryoo, andrew, tara, brian, kat, kevin, and mrs. hale in the background) start playing viking. it's just like the tree chopping game, but in this one, one person is the "viking" and pretends to have a crown on his head. he shakes his hands above his head and throws the crown to a different person. and the two people next to the person that is the viking has to pretend to be rowing the boat. a very vital part of this game (and to the story) is that the person who is the viking has to make crazy grunting noises before he "throws" the crown.

so we start playing and get really into it. everyone is grunting like mad people and we're cracking up so hard. then all of a sudden we see the janitor come into the room from one of the doors. at this point we're still grunting like crazy and then we hear the other door open and in walks.........mrs. scott. all of us who are playing see her and freeze. i honestly wanted to burst out laughing soo badly.

mrs. scott wonders what we're doing in here and mrs. hale tells her we were waiting to be dismissed. turns out we were the first ones they told to go out to the field. who knew? not us.

so we walk out to the field and apparently the entire school was waiting for us. and as we walked out, everyone just started clapping. hahaha. kind of embarrassing, but we could really care less. once we got in our spot we just started playing again. haha.
