who missed the crimson apple?

so it's been a summer.

i took a new job as a baker and four months later, still can't let a batch of pies go by without being burned. i acquired a new beau who conveniently lives down the street from me, making escapes from home much easier (and frequent). this fall looks to be promising, with lots of shows on my calendar - the early november, say anything, and most important of all: hellogoodbye. i will attend that show with utmost bravery, i'm planning on donning a pair of short short tennis shorts and the knee socks with the colored stripes. i'm quite excited. :] it looks as if my collegiate aspirations will take longer than i thought, as i won't finish for another year or two. it's discouraging, but with most advising me that taking my time is the best move i could make, i can breathe somewhat easier. but still being an undergrad at twenty four is not exactly a part of my game plan. oh, and the cobra starship "snakes on a plane" song is the best of the summer. i still have to see that movie.

yo, i've gots to bounce. later homes.

this place was never the same again after you came and went
how can you say you meant anything different to anyone standing alone
on the street with a cigarette on the first night we met
look to the past and remember and smile
and maybe tonight i can breathe for awhile
i'm not in this scene i think i'm falling asleep
but then all that it means is i'll always be dreaming of you.

with a heart so big it hurts like hell.Collapse )

in the words of the teen girl squad, allister is soooo gooood!

and so is taking memes from peter. :-* i'm sorry guys, i have nothing to say other than taking memes from other people's journals. i suck. :[

1) Bold what is true about you.
2) Italicize what you wish was true about you.
3) +Add+ one true thing about you to the end of the list.
4) Tag five LJ friends.

* I miss somebody right now.
* I don't watch much TV these days.
* I own lots of books.
* I wear glasses or contact lenses. yeah but they kind of broke tonight when they fell off my face and were stepped on... oops.
* I love to play video games.
* I've tried marijuana. (i have not, but have been in the same room once upon a time with people who were, so basically secondhand. despite how freezing it was, i sat by the open window that night.)
* I've watched porn movies. oh please, just one!
* I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship. but i was reeeally young (sixteen) and thought i was being reasonable about it... no.
* I believe honesty is always the best policy.
* I curse sometimes. it's not ladylike... but (sh)it happens!

* I have a secret that I am ashamed to reveal.
* I hate the rain.
* I'm paranoid at times.
* I would get plastic surgery if it were 100% safe, free of cost, and scar-free.
* I need/want money right now. yes, that would be nice. i went through a phase where i would buy myself a lottery ticket everyday hoping i'd get something out of it, but after ten days of not winning anything, i realized what i could have done with that ten dollars i spent on losing lottery tickets.
* I love sushi.
* I talk really, really fast. sometimes.
* I have fresh breath in the morning.

my left was my right and up became down.

pardon the timestamp on this particular entry, seeing that four in the morning is what i like to call "the hour of the crazies". i'm a crazy since i have to be up in about four hours and work for another six later on today, and sleep is deemed to be an important requirement to function... yeah.

rather than go into detail of the events of the last week, a list will suffice. capice?

- so we can add another gentleman to the list of admirers. me = heartbreaker of the year.
- i'm a horrible bowler.
- i miss the exboy. a great deal. *wince*
- why does ashlee's "boyfriend" have to be so catchy it hurts? just break out the pogo sticks why don't you...
- SLEEP IS AN IMPORTANT REQUIREMENT TO FUNCTION. don't stay out until 3 in the morning, friends.

goodnight cleveland, or wherever you may be from.

so i deleted this journal on april 29 this year, so to catch up, here is the cliff notes version of joanny's 2005. it plays out like a rejected episode of the oc.

in 2005 i dated an emo boy who liked to borrow my jeans, because they fit better than actual men's jeans do. interesting, i know. we had a huge fallout at a mae concert, which was sad because mae is a great band and no one should fight at one of their shows. we wound up not speaking at all after that and things were not looking good for our hero [me]. i bought myself an ipod as an impulse purchase. it was the best impulse purchase of my life. a few weeks later we started to actually communicate again and all was dandy. we went to lots of movies. and ate a lot of tacos. then he went away for vacation and came back distant towards me, meaning he had met a new girl but i totally saw that one coming. they started going out so we broke up again and i quit my job. it was around that time that i was convinced to attend an anime convention in baltimore and apparently they don't really like doughnuts there (long story). to top off the summer, i came down with a case of mono and missed the first three weeks of the semester. that was fun but i practically have the 'that's so raven' theme song memorized now so that's a talent, i guess. back to school i went, and drove myself into a breakdown because i had a hard time catching up on everything i had missed and wound up failing everything. hooray! i also made my first mortal enemy in a girl named kari who walked about like her shit did not stink and we still dislike each other to this day. i went out with a boy who bought me a package of starburst at the gas station we stopped at. i had two stalkers. my friend coco and i went to the greatest restaurant on the face of the earth - the eagle house!!! - and ate many of the greatest chicken fingers on the face of the earth. we also make fun of glen the waiter and his shiny bald head. i went to a u2 concert and it was the greatest thing i had ever seen in my life, especially because they didn't play the crappy 'all because of you'. christmas day i manage to convince myself that i am fully recovered of the aforementioned emo boy but less than 24 hours later he calls me and sends me text messages and i miss him again. God is making fun of me. i am currently in the process of becoming a heartbreaker myself and letting this guy tony know that i don't want to date him and that his pick up lines are awful. i work at a grocery store. oh and i probably never really left livejournal in the first place because many hours were clocked in looking at ohnotheydidnt. oh yes i did.

the end!
