"And me, I still believe in paradise. But now at least I know it's not some place you can look for, 'cause it's not where you go. It's how you feel for a moment in your life when you're a part of something, and if you find that moment... it lasts forever..."
Don't you wish you could drive past that everyday? Yeah me too. Oh wait I can. That's home. Good ol' Huntington Beach, driving down pacific coast highway. HB = ♥
Remember when people always use to say, “High school will be the best times of your life” and you were always like yeah yeah shut up get me the heck out of here NOW! Let’s all sigh at the same time.. *le sigh* What I wouldn’t give to go back to high school. When the only things that mattered were: 1) what you are wearing and 2) did you do your homework. Life was so simple. Superficial.. well, yes of course, but goodness was it easy. It was happier times right? I mean what made you cry? A bad grade? Breaking up with your one month steady boy/girlfriend? Awwww. As Justin says, Cry me a river. Those times are so pure and “perfect” right? Ha. I will never have friends like the friends I had when I was in high school. Thank God I still am friends with a few of them. Now you have to understand that I went to the same school for thirteen years of my life. Our graduating class was an enormous ninety-nine students, thirty-three of whom had gone there for thirteen years. These people were not just friends, these people were my family. It’s funny how you think you will be friends forever, I mean how could you not? You learned how to read together, you went to ninth grade camp together and snuck out of your cabins, you went prom dress shopping together for goodness sakes! People change. People grow apart, and the saddest part is that some people don’t grow up. They stay the same as they were in high school and you have no choice but to leave them behind. You simply don’t fit in anymore. The ironic part is that not fitting in isn’t always a bad thing. I used to be all in sorts and confused as to why I did not always fit in, but think about it, sometimes you don’t want to fit it. Okay I’m rambling again, I tend to do that a lot. You’ll find that out really soon if you haven’t yet. What I’m trying to say is why do we always want to skip ahead? APPRECIATE THE TIME YOU’RE IN! It’s going to be gone sooner than you realize and all that will remain is but a memory. Sorry, I’ve been reminiscing a lot this week and that is what came of brain chaos.
So I figured out what Christmas is missing! Frank Sinatra!! Of course, how could I forget. I promise you, go put in a Sinatra CD and it will feel more like Christmas, if not I will give you your money back. So speaking of Christmas and music.. auooo I finished my o7 Christmas CD. Unfortunately I cannot post the track list yet because I need to make a cover for it. But if I get too lazy to do that I’ll just end up posting it later. Oh and how much does Christopher Cron rule.com for giving me a song that’s only supposed to be released in Japan? [For those of you who have yet to do so, check out my friend Chris’ band Melee : http://www.meleerocks.com/ or ♥ watch -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQGeZn_q
Getting into the mood of Christmas I figured I’d list a few of my all time favorite Christmas movies for you to go rent:
- Home Alone. [obviously]
- All I want for Christmas.
- Jingle all the Way.
- Love Actually. [duh!!!]
And And And.. Drum roll please…. I finally found an apartment! That is a huge weight off my shoulder. So I will have an empty apartment with just a humungo television. That’s how I roll. I move in on December 5th. Excitement is oozing out of my every pore. You don’t understand that I have not had my own space since before June! I’m so happy, now I can move on to the next task of needs to be accomplished.
I have been getting a lot of questions about bands I listen to. Asking for recommendations and such so I am going to start putting a band that I recommend at the end of every post. Yay. Sorry this was a long boring post.
Band of the day; Melee [of course]
Question of the day: Favorite Holiday Movie?
