Thunderstorms! The first one downed and split trees all over the city, if you've been under a rock. Talia informs me I slept through it. I'm pretty sure I fell asleep right in the middle.


A tree in my yard split in half down to the roots and fell right in front of my bedroom window, blocking its usual view with thousands of white leaves (what tree has white leaves, again? We have two of these things). My room is on the second floor. I'll post some pictures soon, maybe later today (On DeviantArt). My mom says I should bike around town to take some more of random recently deseased trees. dA for tree-ness: http://pedal.deviantart.com

Aaaand Talia's power is out. It went out friday night and will supposedly be back up by Tuesday. Since I live in a newer part of town, our powerlines are buried. We hardly ever get outages. Air conditioning is a nice thing to have. Which Talia's family is now lacking the use of. It's been 90 and above for the past few days, and is supposed to continue like this all week.

35W Bridge update, for those of you who don't care or already know! The Star Tribune reports that there are already plans for rebuilding, set to be completed autumn of 2008. The new bridge will have ten lanes. This is good since its insability was due in part to the fact that some white shirts added a couple lanes on without worrying enough about the overall structure of the thing.

See you punks later; I'm going to go loaf around at my grama's pool. And by loaf I mean babysit, lap, scrub, shock, and practice diving. XD Have fun? Oh, I will.

So I failed two of four of the classes I took this spring semester, and received a B and C+ in the other two. I don’t care. Well, I do, but I don’t care enough.

I found out something today that made me respect my mom much more than I ever have. She thinks I’m smart. I’ve been under the impression that for years, she’s always thought of me as the annoying, bratty, stupid little sibling to my perfect, straight-A sister, Alli. Here’s how it went, basically:

Mom: I think a lot of the problem with your grades is that you’re just too smart.
Me(scoffing): I’m not smart. Alli’s smart. Talia’s smart.
Mom: But you’ve always seem to have this ability to grasp things. Alli works hard. If you worked hard too, you’d blow her out of the water. ...But don’t tell her I said that.

And I thought my Dad was the only person in the universe who ever thought that. How did my mom get this and I didn’t know? I’m still not sure if I believe it, that I have this weird ability that my sister doesn’t, but I can still take it as compliment. That my mom cares. I am just a stupid selfish teenager it turns out. But not for long. God dammit, I do not want to grow the hell up.

This calls for Koolaid and Pokimans and Yuugiou. Anyone have a cookie?

There are several things I'm certain of.

I can never sleep when I'm tired, only when I shouldn't sleep.

I'm sick of most people. All but two or three. One I can stand is my girlfriend.

I fucking miss you, K. I need closure and I'm basing a character off you in my ONE original story! Scratch that, you are a character in it. Named Raina. At least tell me you hate me or something. I need to hear it, hear something. I wish I still had your number. I miss you so much; it's driving me insane.

Talia has the game I bought for myself tonight. She must have accidentally taken it with her into her house when I dropped her off. Should I just give it to her? Her birthday is soon...

I don't want to go to work tomorrow but I will. I need to train my intern and finish the fucking January Statements that John and Kate probably don't even NEED but are too lazy to--

I can never sleep.

Gah. Need. Space. I've been missing my life happening around me. I feel like this school year's gone past in a blink and I can hardly pick out any time I felt truely relaxed. I can't even remember what happened in the weeks surrounding or ON my birthday. I remember EVERYTHING. I want to take naps again. I want to have time to wonder what to do. I want to decide what I'll do that day and not be called and asked. I want to actually LIKE my computer. I want to be able to want shit more. I want to be able to do my homework. I want to do a good job on it. I want to sleep with no pressure of going to classes or work or any-fucking-where. It sounds like the average emo rant, I know. But I if I stop and think--If I have the fortunate chance like I do tonight--then I realize that emos need more stuff to do. I need less. I need time. I need Dad.

I need a cat. Except I have a girlfriend and therefore do not require one. Where does that leave me?

I still want one, dammit.

Mista (Christian) T. and myself are attempting to arrange a get-together of fellow non-prom peoples from Jefferson. Leave a comment saying what Fridays and Saturays you're free within April and maybe May and we'll put together a movie night or something. Also, toss in a couple movies of your choice in your comment! Check other comments for ideas?
