i suppose it’s not rare for me to find things that i really want at reckless, but it’s rare for me to buy more than one thing at a time. last night, i bought five 7”… wut??
- fucked up / haymaker split
- fork knife spoon (fks) / hewhocorrupts split [just some friendz from back home]
- “litany” by fucked up
- off with their heads / dear landlord split
- “black stork attack” by fks
i don’t really know why i bought the fks stuff… nostalgic i guess. i haven’t thought about those guys in a really long time. i also don’t know why i’m geeking so hard about buying records…
it’s just been an amazingly great week.
I’M SO HAPPY I COULD BARF!
i feel like a food whiz every time i cook more than one thing at a time. today: spaghetti and broccoli. lunch success.
ever since i moved to chicago, i’ve walked everywhere. granted, i’ve got the public transportation system at my disposal, but walking has become a huge part of my life. it’s almost impossible to live without a car in the quad cities, but many people do.
a few weeks ago, stephen and i were walking and came to a four-way stop. when it came to be our time to walk, we proceeded. the car that should have waited for us thought that he would intimidate us by going ahead anyway, only to slow impatiently as we crossed. excuse me, but it’s our turn.
it’s like people there don’t understand what to do when it comes to pedestrians. heaven forbid your commute is shortened by two seconds to let someone walk. maybe they can’t afford a car. maybe they’re too young to drive. who knows? who cares!
today, on facebook, an old friend from high school posted this: “hey punk, if you think i’m going to slow down while you try to j walk the avenue while i’m going 45… you’re wrong.” what are you going to do. hit him? please. just stop being an asshole for a minute. it makes everyone’s life easier.
WE KEEP WARM
FROM THE STORM.
WE FIND HOPE.
WE STAY FRESH.

when i was sixteen, i was certain that i’d be married by twenty-two. according to my own life plan, i’ve got about four months to find a boyfriend, fall in love and get married. ha!
that’s the plan… but he’s just so god damned gorgeous.
