ok i know i never post on live journal anymore. it's because i got sucked in to myspace land and it's just too damn much fun for me to do anything else. please smell the sarcasm here. sooo ok here's my life:
i went to ann arbor for a visit in august and realized that i left something really important there when i left last spring, i left my life and i kind of miss it so i'm moving back soon. soon as in monday, yep, i'm leaving monday to drive back to michigan. i'm really excited, i'm so sick of southern california i could just go on a killing spree. the people here are a bunch of suck ass superficial nut cases, and they drive like blind apes wearing lead shoes. so it's either go live my life with all my friends and deal with hating winter or stay here accomplishing nothing in the perpetual sunshine which i can't even really enjoy because i'm such a fucking albino anyway. i may not stay in michigan permanently, but if i do end up leaving again i am NOT moving back to california! ever! is that clear? whew.
so, i might be stopping by to visit rosie420 and asininehopes in missouri but i'm not sure if i'll have enough time. i really want to though, so we'll see. if i can make it there by wednesday i'll definitely stop by for a bit, hope that's ok! too bad! no, really, i miss you but i'm on kind of a tight schedule this time.
anyhow that's my update. oh, that and i met a girl i really like while i was in michigan, she's absolutely great and it was really going to suck trying to carry on a long distance relationship, so the whole moving back to michigan thing is pretty cool for us too. i've carried on a long distance thing before and actually made it work but boy was it a severe pain in the lonely ass. so i get to be with my honey, double bonus, i'm really happy. it's been a long, looooong time since i've fallen for a girl who is as queer as me and i've been totally happy with, so hooray.
ok, that's my update. yee haw, i'm going to bed now.

driving a cab is so strange. the most bizarre people ride in cabs, i drive those on the fringes of society... and drunk marines. it's like people watching in the weirdest bar in the world, except i have to spend time with them alone for a while. it's true, people do tell the strangest things to cabbies, they spill their guts like i'm some kind of therapist. an untrained therapist, that gives really bad advice. i prefer to not say anything at all to them, while i watch as they try to get a good look at me from the back seat and not be obvious about it. i think it confuses people when you don't automatically start up some pointless small talk with them. then i turn the radio down so it's barely audible, so there's almost an awkward silence but not quite. see, i like making people uncomfortable because i'm so sick of answering stupid questions about the way i look. plus it works really well at keeping guys from harassing me for my phone number and making lewd comments.
i do really like the job though, it's certainly interesting. it's only been just over two months and i've already driven a british man with a broken leg to the emergency room, been ripped off and robbed (in a roundabout way, long story), had to kick guys and even one girl out for being too creepy, had a drunk guy stand next to my car staring at me for fifteen minutes, had more than one guy so drunk i've had to pull over to let them puke (if they get any in my cab i charge them at least 50 bucks), had an old lady forget where she was going, had a lady who only knew how to get home by going exactly the same way the bus goes, i tell ya, never a dull moment.
other than all that i haven't been doing much lately. my scrap of a social life disappeared since i have to drive every day from 5pm to 5am. life is pretty uneventful, no trouble to get in to, no time. in short, i'm BORED! heh. i wish i had time to get out and have a beer, meet people who aren't sketchy cab people.
anyhow, there's my rant. got sleepyface....about to fall out...gotta go

well hooray! funny way to start out an entry about getting fired from my job, no? just wait.. ok, so i got fired from my job on wednesday. i got hired in december at a factory called deutsch, they make connectors for things like computers, cars, planes, space shuttles, and bombs. yeah, the kind of bombs that kill people. needless to say i had a bit of a moral problem working for, well, i call people who make bombs warmongers. fair enough? anyhow, they fired me because i was hideously ill with some awful stomach virus, went to the hospital, got a note for two days off work, brought in my note only to be given my last check. they don't accept doctor's notes until you've been there a year. a year! so they let me go, the bastards. but hey, screw 'em, cause today i got hired as a taxi driver. hell yeah! i've always wanted to drive a cab, it's sort of the ideal job for a gal who can't lift anything for shit anymore, bad back and all. so, here's to a new career. need a ride?

woah, i honestly wouldn't have guessed me a satanist [Jan. 12th, 2006|05:21 pm]
[music |radiohead]

You scored as Satanism. Your beliefs most closely resemble those of Satanism! Before you scream, do a bit of research on it. To be a Satanist, you don't actually have to believe in Satan. Satanism generally focuses upon the spiritual advancement of the self, rather than upon submission to a deity or a set of moral codes. Do some research if you immediately think of the satanic cult stereotype. Your beliefs may also resemble those of earth-based religions such as paganism.

someone kill my television, cable is eating my brain [Jan. 10th, 2006|06:09 pm]
it's been a really, really long time since i've updated here. let's see, i've been in oceanside, california now for eight months. eight long, boring months. since i got here i've gotten a boyfriend, dumped my boyfriend realizing once again that i don't like boyfriends, gotten my car broken into and my laptop stolen, gotten my laptop replaced, waited seven months to find a job, and basically spent a lot of time alone, thinking about how much i miss ann arbor. the people here are stale and superficial, there is no punk scene and everything is too expensive to do. it really is a big fashion show, i had forgotten how shallow people can be. i'm thinking about moving to georgia next, my ex lives there and she wants me to come stay with her, maybe get back together. it's a long story, but i'm definitely willing, and ready to get the hell out of southern california. i missed my family while i was gone, but damn, i've come out here just to watch them waste away in this unfriendly place. they won't do anything i suggest to make their lives better, so i feel my staying here much longer is pointless. i don't want to waste away here with them, no siree, so to the south i go, like i wanted to in the first place. some day, i swear, i'll have a summer house in ann arbor and a winter house in new orleans. mark my words.
i miss you guys. cheers.

well, the truck driving thing fell through because of the back problem thing. it's been pretty ugly here having no money and all. you wouldn'y believe how fucking hard it is to get a job here with a head full of dreads and facial tattoos. nobody will hire me, not even a parking lot after having a year and a half of "parking experience". i may have a breakthrough here though, my notboyfriend aaron was a union stagehand for years until he started having siezures and is now more or less disabled and unable to work, but he may be able to get me an in with the union, plus when i was in college years ago i actually majored in technical theatre. so tomorrow we go to the union and attempt to sign me up, wish me luck 'cause i so need it. my mom's been really great since i got here, helping with the bills and all and not being too angry with me for not working yet. i think she almost understands how difficult it's been. i have a really bad back, it's worse than ever, and it really limits what jobs i can do, and my generally wierd appearance has definitely not helped. it may sound like a vacation, but i'm bloody miserable. i have done absolutely nothing really exciting or fun since i got here because i have absolutely no money to do it with. i feel like i'm drowning. i should never have left when i did, i wanted to wait 'till the end of summer to move but mom insisted i leave when i did, and i don't really blame her, caring for my grandma has been really hard on her and she needs all the help she can get. i think it would have been better to wait though, but that's the thing with ann arbor, you wait 'till after summer to leave, but the summer was so fun you can't imagine going away, then winter comes and you're stuck and the whole cycle starts all over again. oh well. i guess things can only get better, right? insert a whole bunch of other happy cliches here...

i am sitting in a well air conditioned hotel room in phoenix by myself. i'm here for truck driving school and it's been one day and i'm already wondering if i should have come here. we had physicals today and had to lift a bunch of really heavy shit repeatedly, and for all of you who don't know i have a really bad back (or disc, if you want to be minute about it). so, i guess if i can move my legs when i wake up tomorrow i'll continue with school, but if not i'm going to have to go home and scramble for a job as it has already been waaaaaaaaaay too long since i've gotten a paycheck. things were so much easier in michigan...this is me being severely homesick. by the way it's hotter than fuck here, like between 105 and 115 degrees generally during the day. ouch. people are dying because it's so hot, it's not right. inside i am laughing at brooke and adam for wanting to move here, and i don't even care right now that that's totally mean, they broke my heart so there.
other news, it looks like it'll take a large miracle or act of the gods to get me out there for punk week, i'll either be still in truck driving training or severely poor and needing work badly. i am very very sad about this, but i hope that i can make it out there in the fall. i miss ann arbor music, i miss my friends, and i miss the best summers ever. i'm trying really hard to keep things from starting a downward spiral.
i miss all of you....
