No, but seriously. Delicious vegan baked goods, Sunday January 31st, 12 noon till 5pm. 1911 w Division, Chicago IL. (Greenheart store in Wicker Park).

Do you ever have that feeling, that you are made up of millions of different people. Like each persons a puzzle piece that they added to you. I’ve been feeling like that lately but I don’t feel like any of these pieces are mine. They’re just everyone else. I know what I want.
I’ve been working a long time on healing myself. I have to say that looking at myself even two years ago, I am SOOO different. Sure my retarded sense of humor and self proclaimed title of a nerd with social skill will always be there. But the way I handle things, the way I look and think about things is very different. I’m no where near as passive as I use to be. I don’t sit by and deal with bull shit the way I use to. I’m more forward, I’ll be the first one to say something if something bothers me (in most situations.) I just got really tired of not saying things, it was causing me a lot more anxiety then I needed and I was holding onto things that I didn’t need to.
I guess just lately I’ve felt really defensive. Everyone has been quick to point out my mistakes or how I’m going to fuck myself over. Look, I really do love you all. I love you all oh so very much. I am blessed with the people I have in my life. It’s just really frustrating being questioned every two steps. Sometimes it’s not even questions, I just get statements thrown at me. So let me get a few things off my chest
My dearest Aunt and Uncle I respectfully decline your offer to return back to college at this time and pursue a degree in music. I assure you, I can always return to school and pursue a degree at a later date. The opportunities I have now will not always be there. I am basically running my own company at the moment. I don’t know many twenty year olds with a LLC. I am taking an nontraditional path in life but I have no regrets or fears about it because it’s my choice, my path and I will continue to stick with it
My car dying was a dumb situation. I knew my thermostat was not reading correctly. I had not driven my car in several days so I thought driving it once would be okay. Apparently once was just enough. I am sorry about that. I thought it would be okay but I got to learn the hard way. Please stop reminding me. I’m paying for my mistake now and I am sorry to my family members that have to come and help me out. I wish I was in a better finical situation.
I appreciate everyone’s concerns about me spending time with a certain someone again. I don’t apologize for it nor do I feel the need to hide the fact we’re hanging out. If I get fucked over, then that’s my fault. ‘Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.’ But I would appreciate everyone keeping their opinions to themselves. I see both sides of this. I can see why some of you are mad/disappointed/etc. I on the other hand can not deny my feelings, for they are my own. To quote one of my favorite poems: "When I ask you to listen to me and you begin to tell me why I shouldn’t feel that way, you are trampling on my feelings when I ask you to listen to me, and you feel you have to do something to solve my problem, you have failed me, strange as that may seem…when you accept, as a simple fact, that I do feel no matter how irrational, then I can quit trying to convince you and get about the business of understanding what’s behind this irrational feeling. And, when that’s clear, the answers are obvious and I don’t need advice. Irrational feelings make sense when we understand what’s behind them."
Again I appreciate everyone caring for me and pushing me to be the best. But I am just tired of feeling defensive lately. I’m tired of feeling like I don’t measure up to everyone’s standards. I feel myself pushing people away and closing myself off which is not what I want. I guess I’m just going through a weird funk.
so car is dead. 100% dead and done. It would cost more to fix the car, then the actual value of my car. =( RIP my little red ruby! Thanks for getting me everywhere over these few years.
I found my horoscope kind of fitting for everything that’s going on today: Being almost completely void of major aspects, your planet, Saturn, is begging for something to do today, Capricorn. The trick is to avoid letting others tell you what to do, or blindly follow others’ expectations. There is no need to sacrifice your integrity on the altar of being a people-pleaser. You may feel some pressure to act in this way, but your advantage lies in thinking for yourself and releasing yourself from the kind of restrictive influences that have tried to mold you into someone else’s person, rather than letting you grow, thrive and express yourself.
So I had this weird dream I was at this party with Connor. In my dream Connor looked like him only he had a lot more tattoo’s. So we’re at this party and Katy Perry’s standing off to the side with some of her friends. Connor and I were recently engaged so we walked over to her and I was like “Katy! Congrats on your engagement.” And then she congratulated me on mine. “So just wanted to say that you and Russell seem like you’d have a pretty crazy wedding and all…. But I think Connor and I are going to give you a run for your money.” And she started laughing and asked if that was so. “Yeah, we’re both irish - it’s an open bar. Just you wait!” So then apparently Connor went off to hang with the guys and it turned into this big girl slumber party. and when I say slumber party, I mean that in the full sense of sleeping bags all rolled out and everything. So my sleeping bag was closest to Zooey Deschanel. We ended up making out when everyone went to sleep. Then I left and Connor and I went to another party and I ran into all these different bands that I knew. So in my dream I passed out at this party and woke up back home and there was this super creepy guy crashing on my floor. He ended up throwing up on my floor (ew). I kicked him out and then went out into my living room and sat on the couch with Connor and my mom. We ate french toast and watched movies all day.
Connor came out to my dad’s with me yesterday for my ‘family’ birthday party. I spent my actual birthday with my friends. I hate to say this but sometimes I feel more loved by my friends by my family. I mean we had like 30 + people show up at my house and all my friends made me feel so loved. I had like 7 family members come to my dads, my sister was the only one to talk to Connor and I. I mean my dad talked to us here and there but everyone else kind of kept to themselves.
Anyway, that’s not why I was writing this. We were driving out to my dad’s and trading ipods back and forth. Finally he put on John Mayer and I put my ipod away cause I was more then happy to listen to John Mayer. So he put on Continuum and played track 10, and he was like “This song is very fitting for me.” I forget what song it was but it made me like so sad! And then this song came on and he was like “I think this song is very fitting for you.”
So much to do to set my heart right Oh it’s taking so long i could be wrong, i could be ready Oh but if i take my heart’s advice I should assume it’s still unsteady I am in repair, I am in repair
I love my best friends! They understand me so well
Last night Connor and I were watching movies till about midnight. After the last movie he said “if we’re both 32 and single, we’re going to vegas and getting hitched.” I rolled over and looked at him and was like “Can we at least get our marriage license then just get married on a beach somewhere?”
Looks like I have some sort of wedding plans some day.
Every time I think of you, I don’t feel anything. My body has shut off all sense of pain when I think of you.
I’m couldn’t text you back When you texted me I was driving. I looked down and saw your name and dropped my phone. I literally had to clutch my chest because it felt like the holes were ripped open. Again. I couldn’t text that to you. I’m tired of sounding pathetic, putting myself out there and being a fool. I couldn’t say anything.
I am not yours and you are not mine.
I’m sorry but the thought of him holding you now hurts the most. I wish you would’ve let me go sooner. Why did you keep me around so long?
Your words are like knives They peel my skin and pierce my soul Your body will burn tonight, but your heart will remain cold
I can’t sleep. It’s almost 5 am but I’m terrified to go to sleep. If I close my eyes, I fear I’ll wake up to find things worse. I never want to have a night like tonight. Ever again. I never want to have that kind of panic. To think those kinds of thoughts. I have never felt more helpless in my entire life. To not know what was going to happen, or if I could do something. You my dear are loved. You are more precious then you know. I hope you never lose site of that.
Sometimes in the morning I am petrified and can’t move Awake but cannot open my eyes And the weight is crushing down on my lungs I know I cant breathe And I hope someone will help me this time And your mother’s still calling you insane and high Swearing it’s different this time And you tell her you give in to the demons that possess her And that God never blessed her insides Then you hang up the phone And feel badly for upsetting things Crawl back into bed to dream of a time When your heart was open wide And you loved things just because Like the sick and the dying
And sometimes when you’re on You’re really fucking on And your friends they sing along And they love you But the lows are so extreme That the good seems fucking cheap And it teases you for weeks in its absence But you’ll fight and you’ll make it through You’ll fake it if you have to And you’ll show up for work with a smile And you’ll be better And you’ll be smarter And more grown up And a better daughter or son And a real good friend And you’ll be awake You’ll be alert You’ll be positive though it hurts And you’ll laugh and embrace all your friends And you’ll be a real good listener You’ll be honest You’ll be brave You’ll be handsome and you’ll be beautiful You’ll be happy
Your ship may be coming in You’re weak but not giving in To the cries and the wails of the valley below And your ship may be coming in You”re weak but not giving in And you’ll fight it You’ll go out fighting all of them
When I see myself, I’m seeing you too as long as I remember and I’m feeling like I knew that my jokes aren’t funny, the truth isn’t true if there was no you
If you were my boat in the deep blue sea I probably sink you down I know I should have thanked you for carrying me but for you I will happily drown
Out on your way the darkest night the longest day I know what to say to make you laugh and nothing you could do could make me turn my back on you when you’re looking for a fight, I’m your man when you need a friend, you got my hand
And warming me While I’m trying hard to say, is that I’m counting on you and you got me too our secrets aren’t safe, I’m singing out of tune if there was no you, if there was no you
Out on your way darkest night the longest day I know what to say to make you laugh and nothing you could do could make me turn my back on you when you’re looking for a fight, I’m your man when you need a friend, you got my hand when you need a friend, you got my hand you got my hand
It needs to be summer so I can roll my windows down to this mix (made by yours truly). Band of Skulls, Glassjaw, Mewithoutyou, Dead Weather, Veruca Salt, Cage the Elephant, Kiss Kiss, Ida Maria, Wolf Mother, Was Are Scientists, The Donnas, The White Strips, The Dead Weather, Cold War Kids, Joan Jett, Gogol Bordello. Just a little bit of everybody
This song makes me wanna look like Alison Mosshart in the Dead Weather ‘Treat me like your mother’ video. Seriously, wearing boots, a leather jacket and kicking ass. I need to make a ‘I’ll kick your ass cause I’m a bad ass’ soundtrack today. Starting with this song.
