I doubt 2013 will be anywhere near as fun as 2012 but it will defintely be a year of productivity. I have so many resolutions and I intend on following through with all of them. Thanks all of you beautiful crazy souls for making 2012 one of my favorite years and lets conquer 2013 together.

7:08PM

Things are slowly changing around me as if someone really close to me has the power to stop time and is playing a trick on me by subtly moving things around me while time is stopped. Except its not really tangible changes like that. Its more like people are slowly transforming their personalities around me or maybe Im just changing my perception of everyone with age, or maybe both. Before netflix and before I downloaded movies online I used to go to my local Blockbuster at least once a week. Every week id see the same manager and we always talked about movies and my mom. It was nice having her as a constant in my life even if we didnt know each other. I dont have that anymore but now that I work at a bank we definitely get a lot of regulars. The difference is that I am now the constant and the regulars are the ones that come and go. Its kind of depressing and makes me feel as if I was the one who can stop time all along. Except I can only stop time for myself while everyone and everything else carries on around me.

Its weird how you don't appreciate monotonous day to day life until you are deprived of it. A good friend moving away, a break up, a new job, moving away, these things really can slap you awake and make you really miss your old routine. Then again you get a new routine when that happens but you are too busy dealing with the loss of your old routine to fully appreciate the new one. The grass is always greener shit. Really missing certain friends like crazy right now but am also loving my new ones. I know when I move away Ill really miss these guys. Nostalgia is a constant raining cloud.

I had a very unconventional nightmare last night. I dreamed I was glued to the ground at a zoo and someone was letting all the animals out to attack me. I was so scared I woke up shaking. Then, for reasons beyond me, Paranormal Activity popped into my mind, which only prolonged my attempt of falling back to sleep. It was a long night.

I accidently pressed the button to login and livejournal prompted me with this message, "You are already logged in. Go have fun." Livejournal has always been the most caring and intimate social network to me.

If social networks were people in my life, Livejournal would be that old childhood friend that knew everything about me even though we don't see each other as much anymore, Facebook would be the responsible, grounded and mature friend that may not be the most fun but would always encourage me to persue my career and education, Myspace would be that one wild and trashy friend that is totally scatterbrained and bizzare but a blast to go drinking with every once in awhile, and Twitter would be that one aquaintance that goes on and on about celebrities, the hills, dieting and other superficial things.

4:26PM - Sorry its a long one

My number 1 goal at the moment is to get out of San Diego. Unfortunately, this will probabally take 6 months to a year. I have been trying to use "The Secret" to obtain that goal financially but I feel very selfish everytime I focus on material items. Praying for money when you don't really need it always sounded so juvenille to me. However, I really want to be driving in my car to a new city of my choice with no financial obligations so I will be selfish for the time being. Car payments aren't helping. I really wished I lived in a city where cars were unnecessary.

Enough whining. I had a lovely time at Sushi Deli with some co-workers today and have picked up my sampler again thanks to a new-old friend's direction. He is very experienced and very self-absorbed. But who isn't?

Im thinking about moving to Oregon but not necessarally Portland. I love Oregon but I like the idea of living in a small town where everyone knows everyone and people make pies for each other and the only time that there is a conflict is at town meetings. If its anything like that I will be very happy.

I used to think I wanted to live in a more busy city like New York but that sounds terrible now. At one point in my life, or maybe several points, I would like to live in a cabin in the woods for a couple of months with no technology just to connect to life and earth again. Walden style.

I have become more cynical with age. I used to try to fight it but now I have just accepted it.

2:19PM - Bible

Today my hands our in your hands; Tomorrow they could be in anyones. We were glued to thrones in our living rooms like kings and queens of sloth. The rage was brewing. Happiness was playing hide and go seek with your spirit. She still hasn't found her under the basement with the broken toys and dead rodents. Mini breakdowns on top of kitchen sinks decorate this surburban tragedy. The population lay still in it's crib surrounded by the wallstreet wallpaper, under the doomsday mobile. "Have you checked the baby monitor my love?" In the office they burned their clothes but they were just given uniforms. In the prisons they prayed red handed and naked. "I'm thinking we should tailgate the apocolypse. After all I could really use a good buzz." Each of them created in silence a better version of themselves. They called them redemption dolls and only a few moved on their own. The chant was in unison but a few kept quiet with delayed cynacism. Yes they wore white robes but covered in paint as if to hide the supposed innocence in a child like way, similar to a child bashfully lying to his parents about the broken vase. Good and Evil played chess on eternities sunrise but they always ended in stalemate until one of them learned how to cheat.

I didnt need fairy tales until I met him
but gargoyles are just statues until you start believing in them
I slept on the rocks of his doubt and awoke on the feathers of his passion
Horror movies came naturally as we chased our insecurites with a bottle of fame and mailed ourselves back to modesty

"Do you remember the year we were planes?"
"Planes always land or crash." He whispered.
"Yes but we were airbourne that year. We were unstoppable and contolled at the same time."

That year the glue never stuck and second chances grew on trees next to the apples the snakes would never touch. The tigers roamed freely but never attacked until the magicians showed up. There were walls but always a door in the middle of them and we each had three hands.

I didn't need fairy tales until I met him
but lately I've been studying them.

Once upon a time two princes lived like planes, unstoppable and controlled at the same time. As I peek at the back of the fable to see the happy ending I get three words instead

Had a great time with my buddy Mike at Ob the other night. Met a lot of interesting people. However, I did not enjoy my friend Kim biting me in the cheek. She was very drunk and threw up in my other friends car later on in the evening. This one girl I met reminded me of artemis from its always sunny in philadelphia and penelope from snl combined.

So last night I was supposed to meet up with a friend at a show in North Park but I couldnt get in. So instead of going straight home I wondered around university where I discovered an urban slam poetry jam taking place. I was so ecstatic because I have been wanting to see and possibly in the future participate in one. It was just like I had imagined intense emotional and gripping. I was too intimidated to perform but maybe next time. It was such a great surprise.

I have been going through a lot of boyfriend and friend drama. Don't feel sorry for me though because most of it is my fault.


There are some big changes occuring in my life and Im anxious and grateful for them.

What a fun day. First I had a great time bonding with the fam. Then I had an exhilarating yet enduring walk from north park to hillcrest and back to north park. Finally I capped the night off with a lovely evening at Tiny's for Steph's going away shindig. It was very surreal running into old friends and I had a great time catching up. Now if only this insomnia would leave me be.
