Shaking and laughing and screaming at your “deck”-ness.

28 July 2009

For no real comprehensive reason, this postcard made me extremely happy. I’m assuming that this postcard was intended to put a smile on someone’s face, but my reaction was not to the sweetness of the couple. As I said, I don’t have a reason comprehensive enough for me to articulate. It just made me happy, even though there isn’t anyone that I’m infatuated with right now. Seriously. Whoever said that absence makes the heart grow fonder is a liar. Prolonged absence causes distance, which in effect allows a person to explore other aspects of life and spend time with other people, which can cause that person to lose interest, if not forget in entirety, in the other person. That’s how it worked for me, at least. I’m fascinated in the reality that I am atypically complacent with that idea.

Last night I fell asleep past one a.m., I’m not sure when exactly, but all I know for sure is that I woke up at 3 and have been awake since. It was the first time I’d seen the morning in a while, the first time I ate a decent breakfast. It was refreshing, despite the fact that I have an unnecessary lack of sleep. What kept me up was the long-running thought that I need to go shopping, desperately. I don’t even need to make a list of things that my wardrobe lacks/I need; besides, this isn’t just about the things that I need. I honestly believe that aside from my closet’s lack of quality basics, my wardrobe at its current state does not reflect my personality accurately. I need some change, please.

Despite today’s unproductivity as a day spent criticising scenesters and window shopping online, I was able to start the day by finishing off Chuck Palahniuk’s novel, Pygmy. Though I’m not fond of happy endings in Palahniuk novels, Pygmy was definitely a fun read that was quirky, humorous, and contained Palahniuk’s signature brand of satire. Another hint of productivity today came with a visit to the dentist. I had my teeth professionally cleaned for the first time in a while and got a couple of new fillings. Thankfully I didn’t get to taste the bitter blue stuff today. Also, I’m glad I got the dental stuff finished before school.

Speaking of which, I shall officially be a junior in nine days. Mixed emotions consume me.

At this point in time, I still believe that hipsters suck. They can all wallow in their postmodernism and shop American Apparel while listening to whatever Pitchfork tells them to while appearing nonchalant and indifferent to the consumerism that surrounds them. Hipsters. They give emo kids personality. Also, the sky is blue.

p.s. I’m finally sharing INTERESTSINCLUDE with people. Since sharing is caring and whatnot.

Self-homework: Mischief Managed.

14 December 2008

I have a few homework assignments set for myself this holiday season, and probably onwards.

These first two I’ve already done:

  • Write down Fight Club quotations on post-its and stick them inside random library books
  • Wreak havoc in a restaurant (I took a few peanuts from the bowl they serve guests, put them in my mouth, and put them back inside)

These are what I now plan to do:

  1. I shall now try to do the post-it task for books in an actual store, like the Fully Booked along Bonifacio High Street or the common National Bookstore
  2. Steal candy from a random child
  3. Make a kid on the bus cry (I almost did this to a 3rd grader last week, but she was being too smart and I had to let her go. I hated her)
  4. Interrupt a couple while they’re making out by putting my hand between their lips. I should put stuff on my hands too.
  5. Break someone’s heart within the next two years.

I will make it to a point to post my favourite PostSecret entry every week.

The Arcade Fire = total aural aphrodesiac.
