Your mind is like listening to music with headphones. You are the only one that hears all of the complexity of the music, but no one else can hear it. The only way you can try to clue them in on what it is you are experiencing is by opening your mouth, but what comes out is nothing like what is going on inside your head. It is missing pieces that are intregal to understanding the piece of music. Some people are better at opening their mouth and making people feel and understand, and then there are people like me who are tone deaf.

help pleeease! [10 Jan 2007|01:34pm]

I am sure this has been asked for before, but I could really use
anyone's help.

For a final we are writing a literary analysis paper.
I decided to compare Holden from Catcher in the Rye to Charlie.

We need atleast 2 comparisons.
For one, I want to put how Holden and Charlie believe and rely
on someone who isn't alive anymore for stregnth.

I am not sure what else to really write on, maybe two more things?
I just want to know what would be most interesting and correct.

Thank you guys so very much.

(I already posted this in xthemanyperksx. I'm sorry if
you're in both and had to be bothered by this twice.)

Taking a page from Charlie. [12 Nov 2006|04:24pm]

Dear friend,

I miss writing letters. I miss writing page after page of nothing but my thoughts, of things that I find interesting, of things that I just can't wait to tell you. It's about taking the time and writing by pen, carefully, planning out each and every sentence before committing it to lines on a page.

I don’t quite know what to say anymore; I don't really know where to start. I know I could write to him or her or you and I know they would want to read what I write but I don’t know.

"I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and still trying to figure out how this could be."

Please don't worry.

And maybe I just have to convince myself that it is okay that I don’t know, that we don't know. It's okay, I’m okay; we are all okay.

And even if we're not, we will be soon enough.


Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent -Victor Hugo [12 Sep 2006|01:41pm]

so, i'm not sure how many of you know kevin devine and his music but he's my favorite artist. i got the chance to see him in philadelphia this weekend.... the downstide was that he was opening.... and he was opening to kt tunstall. his name wasn't even on the ticket.

i wasn't sure what the show would be like and how many kevin fans would be there. i would just like to say kt tunstall has the weirdest fan base i have ever seen. from kids to grandparents to boring looking college students and everything in-between. when he started playing i could honestly say only 6 people in the crowd were verbal fans and only 3 (my friend and i and a lovely stranger) were singing along with him. we were up front and i've never been to a show so intimate enough that you can talk to the artist. it was amazing. when you feel the same way a person does and that person is on a stage singing all those words you couldn't form in the right order you want to a crowd of people . . . you feel INFINITE.

if you want, you should check out these songs by him!: cotton crush, afterparty, no time flat, ballgame, tapdance, just stay, this box is empty and fingerprints and photographs.

I feel like I belong here! [28 Jul 2006|02:19am]

I felt incredibly infinite when the three of us sat on my bedroom floor, sharing my fuzzy green pillow and one glass of juice, singing at the top of our lungs to our favorite sing-a-longs. And while we sat on my roof, smoking those cancer sticks, throwing fallen walnuts off into the distance with terrible aim and complaining about the heat.

I feel incredibly infinite every time the three of us are together.

I wish I wasn't leaving in the fall.

[25 Jul 2006|06:45pm]

i felt infinite when it was dark and you gave me the best advice ever. Its ok to doubt and question. You told me it was good that i was so passionate about things. I told you about the things that stopped me from being myself. Im so happy i met you.

1 step forward.. two steps back. [24 May 2006|11:27pm]

im making too many wishes & dreaming too many dreams & then i stop & think.. the world shouldnt be like this at all. all i want is peace. that's it. i never ask for much. all i want is a simple thought & if not, a sincere handshake would do me nicely. life were never perfect for me. nothing ever just happened to fall into place, it just was. at a certain point, that i cant remember, i learned to adapt, simply because, i didnt feel like it would be changing anytime soon. all the screaming in my background.. the falling, the tears. sometimes more screams more often, a heart breaking. distance & yet i am right there. nothing is happening. this is normal. i dont even have to drown them out with scarling anymore. i just cry. i dont know why, but i feel like im always going to be living in the 'one step forward, two steeps back' part of my life.. forever. i have failed myself so many times now, it doesnt even make me sick to my stomach anymore when i hear the news- i just think about dying & how bad the timing is off, because i dont wonna go out this way. i'll probably be 20 years old before i graduate highschool, when i wonna make it somewhere, so i can look down & say with tears of joy.. "my journey to the top wasnt easy. life has never gone easy on me". It's something to be proud of to me.. but..like i said. im stuck. nevermind. i just made my 1 step forward & i've got a feeling that with the next 2 steps i take back, im gonna wake up in a hospital. at least thats what i hope.

On Saturday April 6th, 2005 my mellow drama titled Seasick was showing in my town, I was one of the three leads (as many mellow dramas have a villain a hero and a heroin) My friend Anna drove 2 hours to come see it. Originally her friend was supposed to come, but decided last minute that she wasn’t going to, (Anna and I had been talking about things, things equals us being together, and her friend didn’t want to make things awkward or have things be awkward for her) So after the play , I take her to my house , I run inside, and grab my CDs . As soon as I get in the car I have an idea, and after saying I just had an epiphany I run inside and grab a blanket. We go to the park behind the grade school and lay there and cuddle and talk about things, (yes , things are still what they meant earlier) We decided it was worth it (she does in fact, live two hours away, and I am currently without a car and she goes to college 6 hours away, thank goodness for summer eh? hopefully I get accepted to her college. lol) So after about 45 minutes of laying there, I make her get up and get ready for phase two , I ask her if she trusts me, and if I can drive her car, she says yes. So I blindfold her, and drive out to an old bridge, I tell her to take off the blindfold and go stand on the bridge, she does. So I put on Death Cab for Cuties "I will follow you into the dark" and go out there and dance with her. Then I run back to the car and I put on Damien Rice's "Cannon Ball" and we dance once again. After a bit, we go back to the car , I drive to the park behind the diary bar, and we walk around for a bit. We stop on a bridge and we just sorta talk and hold each other. Then I ask her if she brought a camera, she said yes, so I say come on time for phase six, we go and take pictures. The first picture I take, I accidentally just take one of a tree, and out of no where this cop comes flying up and asks us if we just saw that flash. and we were like..ya? and he's like where did it come from? OH, it was your camera, you guys are taking pictures, I thought it was maybe some kids with some fireworks or something. And me and her are like..ahh. ok? and he drives off. Lord was it funny. After the pictures we lay down on this merry go round and just take and kiss. Throughout the night we had just been asking each other what we were thinking about , and how hard this was going to be, but we both know its well worth it, especially after a night like this. we even talked about the other people that we had been interested in, which was good. I think we'll have to talk about things like that. There was one moment , where I put her hand on my chest, and I just let her feel my heart beat. After the merry go round, we go to her car and just listen to music and cuddle and talk (after discovering that I had left her lights on..silly me) I asked her when she was leaving and she told me about 20 minutes ago, this was at about 11:50. So I put on the death cab song once again, and we drove home, we sat by my house listening and then I put on Damien again. and we listened to that again, we kissed said our goodbyes, and stay cutes and what nots. and I went inside. (to find out later I forgot my skateboard in her trunk.rats) all night I couldn’t sleep or think about anything besides what I had just did.

it’s a nice feeling , not being able to sleep, because you feel infinite.

So this might have been a couple weeks ago, but I felt pretty infinite when Jared Leto looked me in the eyes.
Even if it was only for a second.

The application is now fixed.

The other maintainers and myself have definitely been lacking in the moderation of this community and the friend/Charlie applications.

If you want to sign up, I will make sure that you get matched up correctly. If you have signed up before, but are still waiting, submit the application again and I'll get it taken care of.

last night we went to see belle & sebastian. and it felt like - if any band ever made me feel infinite, it was them. last night. watching stuart (i think thats his name?) jump around on stage and dance and dance and just...be happy. and his happiness just permeated the room and it made me happy. and opening with "stars of track and field" was more perfect than any opening ever.

but it wasn't only belle & sebastian. i went with a friend of mine who's fallen in love with me, but i have a boyfriend. but last night was really nice. first of all, i was in a good mood on the way there and i laughed alot. when we got out of the car at the show i asked him for a hug and he kept his arm around me when we got inside. then the new pornographers opened (he didn't have his arms around me anymore) and during the second half of their set i started to feel unstable and i could feel my heart beating in my chest. i didn't tell him until after the set and he said i was dehydrated and he bought some coke and sprite and i drank half of each. then we had to go back into the crowd and find a spot because b&s were starting. we couldn't get very far but he found a spot where i could sit up on the ledge and see over everybody's head. and i did, and it was actually pretty uncomfortable, but i didn't care. but for some reason i just got this thought in my head when he helped me onto the ledge that he would do anything for me. i don't know why, it just...kind of came to mind. i don't want to say it hit me because i don't know if its true, but that's what i thought. in the car on the way home i mostly slept and he let me use one of his sweatshirts as a pillow. when we got to my house he gave me a very long hug (all our hugs are usually very long) and i just kind of rested my head on his shoulder and chest, and he stroked my hair and gave me a kiss on the forehead and told me to get some sleep. while i was walking to the door he said my name and i turned around and he was standing by his car and he said "i love you" and i smiled and said, "i love you too" and walked inside.
it wasn't the first time we'd said it to each other or anything, but it made me happy.

my boyfriend was pissed that i was even going with him.
