down the hill, fell jack and jill and you came tumbling after, 'cause of original sin

I really do think that people watching is my favourite thing...
I really want to take marshall (my camera) into a starbucks or some other kind of public place and take pictures of strangers... however... I would have to ask their permission... which is awkward... and also when people know that they are being photographed they subconsciously pose and it just ruins everything... damn

I miss toronto
I miss my homies
I miss the city

I love how Canadian tim hortons is... I got a coffee today and they have their winter cups out and it made me smile... I think it even made my day

the weather is off the wall
this morning at 8 it was so foggy! I don't even know how to explain how foggy it was! I couldn't see anything 10 meters in front of me

christmas is soon

I miss you, I'm going back home to the west coast

I always tell the girls, never take it seriously, if ya never take it seriosuly, ya never get hurt, ya never get hurt, ya always have fun, and if you ever get lonely, just go to the record store and visit your friends.

...god, I forgot how much I love that movie

life's like a hourglass glued to the table

so I have been making a list of quotes from songs that I like and I am going to make it into some kind of book to keep forever... and my children will be boggled by my radical taste in music... yea, I just said radical... now take a minute and listen to your brain explode!

so here are some of the quotes I have compiled so far...

"Sometimes love isn't about how much someone suits you, but how much you're willing to change to suit them"

Rough hands by Alexisonfire

"If you get down on me, I’ll get down on you"

Get down by B4-4

"They have pre-wrapped sausages but they don't have pre-wrapped bacon. Well, can you blame 'em 
Uh, yeah"

If I had a million dollars by Barenaked Ladies

"People spend so much time every single day, runnin' 'round all over town, givin' their forever away"

Forever by Ben Harper

"I am on a 24 hour champagne diet. Spillin’ while I’m sippin’ I encourage you to try it"

Money to blow by Drake, Birdman and Lil Wayne

"When you feel like your life ain’t worth living, take a look around you then a look way up to the sky"

Change by Blind Melon

"Addicted to how we kick it"

Shorty like mine by Chris Brown and Bow Wow

"I’d sneak out in the middle of the night, throw rocks at her bedroom window… It’s where I drank my first beer"

Red dirt road by Brooks and Dunn

"Those were the best days of my life"

Summer of ’69 by Bryan Adams

"Hey, you’re a crazy bitch"

Crazy bitch by Buckcherry

yea so that is samples are the list... it makes me happy

so I had the absolute worst sleep last night... I couldn't fall asleep till like 3:30 am and it was just awful

so watch your step, I am about to drop some knowledge... (my friend reed says that all the time)

so if you have a bad day or something that you want to keep private or don't want to talk about... for god's sake, don't friggin advertise it on facebook... because people are going to comment and wonder what your deal is... I mean really... be smart people

so I don't know about you people, but I love people watching, I think it is one of my favourite things ever... when I am doing work in a public place at school I always take a minute or two and listen to people and see what they are doing and its AWESOME

also Crush Luther were playing at the school yesterday right where I was writing my essay... there is nothing like watching and listening to a live band that you enjoy for free while you are making an assignment your bitch... I was just loving life

only an assignment and a midterm left and I am free :)

feel so good but I'm old, 2000 years of chasing's takin' its toll. and it's coming closer

the title of this blog is a lyric from the song closer by kings of leon... no matter how many times I hear that song I never get sick of it... it is amazing... kudos to those guys for making amazing music

I have completely forgotten how amazing is... it solves so many of my problems... whenever I am completely lost on the youth of today it is literally a translator...

for example... did you know that there is a term called "browning out"? according to urban dictionary, it is when you black out from excessive drinking but then your memory comes back to you once someone mentions it... so it is not a full black out because you remember once someone reminds you
the following is the example used on the website:

"I didn't even remember making out with Bryanne until J-Lo told me (it must not have been that good)! I definitely had a brown out last night."

"Febreeze Shower:
When you haven't showered (and don't have time to), but you don't want to go out smelling bad, so you spray yourself with Febreze instead.
Brandon was running late for class, so he settled for a Febreze shower."

"Piglet Flu:
During times of pandemic, the common flu is known as Piglet Flu. While less deadly than Swine Flu it still makes you feel like shit. However, because it is not infamous like swine flu you get no respect from having it. So you feel like crap and no one gives a damn because you don't have h1n1.
Doctor: How do you feel.
Patient: Like shit.
Doctor: Well the tests came back, you don't have swine flu. So get the hell out you lazy good for nothing bastard. Come back with a real illness.
Patient (as he is thrown out) But i really do have the flu. Even if it is only piglet flu."

so this font may be off because I was copying and pasting and it changed on me... so annoying but anywho...
I don't understand the obsession people have with texting... I really don't... I mean I text as much as the next person does and yes, I do get irritated when I text someone a question and they do not text me back... that is quite annoying however, I don't get why people base an entire relationship (mainly friendship) on texting... texting is not a big deal... and I usually don't text people back if I have nothing to say to them... that makes sense right? I don't know I am probably just being a bitch... this happens often these days... I don't mean to be mean but apparently I can't talk to people these days without them getting offended somehow... so I apologize in advance to people I have conversations with in the future... I honestly do not mean to hurt your feelings... but anyway... that got heavy really fast ahahah

I am going to end this with a funny joke...

Knock Knock
Who's there?
Atch who?
Bless you!

lets have a mid city fiesta with your west LA connections

so when you walk into a public room where most people are doing work and studying... you'd think most people in large groups would at least TRY to be quiet... nope

I am sitting here trying to do an assignment and there is a group of 5 people who are loud and obnoxious... they all have their laptops open... clearly not doing any work... there is one guy who is literally quoting "the bro code" word for word... as if he has memorized it! I mean barney stinson is the most awesome guy around... but really? word for word? he even opened with "the bro code states..."

I get that it is a public place and you dont HAVE to be quiet... but they can at least be respectful enough to not use their noisy bar voices...

and now his friend is talking only in chuck norris jokes... yay!

also... this area has many couches and stuff but it irritates me to no end when someone lies down and takes up the whole couch to sleep... THE ENTIRE COUCH? really? I need a place to sit too... grrr I should stop coming here to go work... it clearly stresses me out

I have decided that I am very attracted to the lead singer of kings of leon... he is so cute... and I am in love with their music too... this might be a match made in heaven

so if you were to be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why?

I would be a blue whale because they are HUGE and awesome! I googled them all morning... this is how I fail school haha

I need a mint.

funny the way it is... someone's broken heart becomes your favourite song

procrastination may or may not be the death of me...

happy birthday serra!
it's my roommates birthday...

I have a list of things that make me happy

flashing lights
editing pictures
how I met your mother
going to bed early
seeing old friends
being missed
starting school work early

I have been so unproductive today and it sucks... I feel so useless...
you know when you havent really done anything all day and then you have to go to work, and because you have been lazy all day you really dont want to go... I so much rather be productive because then I hate work so much less because I am already up and moving and motivated to go
mondays just suck

I wish I could cook... or that I was motivated to learn

so I was thinking of something to write about and my friend waldo told me to write about things that bother me... not a lot of things bother me... he told me that switches that don't do anything bother him... and I completely agree... also switches that are backward... for example if you flip it down and the light turns on... that is annoying

so I am watching dr. oz and they are talking about secrets that men keep from their wives or girlfriends... and they are talking about erectile dysfunction at the moment... kudos to those men... seriously... not only do they have erectile dysfunction... but they are talking about it on national television... for me, that would be so embarrassing... so I just wanted to give them a shout out
also, Im about to get personal here... 80% of the time men get erectile dysfunction, it is not because of the woman... this is an issue I have experienced... so dr. oz has quite literally made my day... who would have though that would happen

pieces don't fit here anymore

alright, so I was washing the dishes this morning while listening to james morrison's "the pieces don't fit anymore" and I had this sort of epiphany... so I think relationships are puzzles. your most favourite puzzle in the world... and everyday of a relationship is like working on this puzzle and you so desperately want this puzzle to work and fit together because you know the outcome will be beautiful however sometimes you can't force pieces to fit together, so you discard the piece, (the piece is a metaphor for an argument or something) thinking it'll still be beautiful without it but without that piece, other pieces wont fit either and the puzzle will never come together the way you initially imagined it would. so then you have to decide if you want to continue on this puzzle when you know the pieces don't fit but you can't, you have to find a new puzzle.

so my friends nathan and reed have introduced me to these bands and I like them a lot so I thought I would recommend them... the rosebuds and coconut records... they are both really mellow and I enjoy them very much :)
I love music so much so I am always open to suggestions of music...

so this weekend is going to be great! my friend splenda (camp name haha) is coming up to visit me and it's going to be a hell of a time... also my roommate serra's birthday is on monday so we are celebrating it this weekend as well! wooooo!

party time.
