Doctor & Patient
I am calm & collected,
the best I've ever been.
I can't let you get under my skin.
& I am fine, cause I told that
to myself 500,000 times
& like everything else, it is in my mind.
But there are times when I close
my eyes & I just can't decide
if all I'm doing hiding.
frustrated. & that's an understatement.
All this built up pressure,
I've got to let it out.
I'm frustrated, cause there is no room
when I'm torn in two;
I'm the doctor & the patient.
You could give in & break everything.
That's one way to handle things.
& you could cut off everyone you know
& live in this black hole alone.
Or you could realized that none of that ever works
& in fact it just makes everything worse.
We've all been here more than a few good times,
so how about we do this one right?
I am calm & collected,
the best that I've ever been.
I can't let me get under my skin.
& I am fine, cause I told that
to myself 500,000 times
& like everything else it is in my mind.

But I'm so mad at him for springing this on me. & I'm mad that I'm surprised because I always thought it would have been something that I'd be in on. Like, I'd totally know a break-up was coming or something. & I hate being mad at him because it breaks my heart even more. & I can't decide if that's what I should embrace to get over him or just be all "well, it was fun while it lasted" like he's already being. & I just want to scream because there's all this pressure building up in my head. I just don't know how I want to handle myself, I don't know how I'll end up actually doing so.
But he held my hand & told me he loved me as he said that we should break up. & that's just not fair to me at all. because I have no idea how to think or feel. & WHERE did this all come from. I wasn't complaining & you never said anything. But then I would have made an effort to fix it, if you had. This is how you deal with things. But how does something just go from being so happy to nothing?
And you made me wait all week to be with you. You made me wait. & Whenever I would send you text messages saying that I missed you, you would ask me if you could still see me on Wednesday. & I had nothing to do all day, so I waiting around for you to get off work, & I thought of things that we could do that we didn't usually do. By us doing something different, I was thinking along the lines of cooking our own dinner or going for a drive or something. not breaking up. & I hate how that never even crosses my mind, but it's the first thing to come to yours.
I want to cry like a child. with the screaming & the yelling & nonstop flow of tears & the not holding back. I want to scream & cry until I'm tired & can't anymore.
But I have work in 3 hours, & if i did that, I would be an absolute mess.
I am the ugliest crier though. & jesus christ the area under my eyes stings so bad.
I don't know what to do :'(
I can't write anymore.

So yesterday I woke up with this intense chest pain. I pretty much couldn't walk around without clutching at my left boob in hopes of ripping out my heart. It actually still hurts a little bit, but at least I can walk/open my chest. It's more like an invisible bruise--just sore to the touch.
But yesterday my dad took me to the ER & I was there for a few hours. They did an EKG, pee test, (a pregnancy test?) & an x-ray. The doctor said that I probably have Costochondritis, which is inflamed rib cartilage.. or something like that.
"Costochondritis is a condition that causes chest pain due to inflammation of the cartilage and bones in the chest wall. Also called Tietze's Syndrome, costochondritis occurs when there is inflammation at the junction of the rib bone and breastbone (sternum). At this junction, there is cartilage joining these bones. This cartilage can become irritated and inflamed. Depending on the extent of the inflammation, costochondritis can be quite painful."
Oh, & Obama was elected president, which is pretty cool. I mean, to be honest, I voted for McCain, even though I kind of knew that Obama would win anyway, but this could be really cool. Hopefully things work out with the us & the rest of the world though. Israel: please dont drop a bomb on anyone. & I really hope that Obama doesn't pull all of the troops out right away. I mean, that would look soooo incredibly weak & make us vurnerable to another hit. I just wouldn't want us to end up with another war, in trying to end one.
It's getting late. I miss Forrest =/ We're supposed to hang out tomorrow, but I'm helping out with a shift till 5:30 & he doesn't get off until 7. So, probably not till 9 that we actually get together. I think we might need to do something new. Or maybe it's just me.. maybe I need to do something new for myself, but things (everything) have been so bland lately. I feel like I lost my ability to get excited & surprised. I'll find it though. It can't have gotten too far away.

"Thinking 'I'm better than that' & then finding out I'm actually not" seems to be a recurring theme.
Jesus Christ are schools expensive--the good ones that I'd actually want to go to, at least. I feel more & more left out on my own when it comes to paying for school. How am I supposed to pay for programs that cost $20,000-81,00o+? But I'm so tired of settling for less. I want to be excited for going to school for interior design, but I can't when I'm obviously dealing with the crap scraps of school options. Are junior colleges even really accredited schools? I'm going to go with probably not. I feel like a bitch for being so picky. Who am I to say that I deserve better? I think in a perfect, money-less world, I'd be going to The Art Institute. I mean, that's what comes to mind when I think of interior design classes... with a well stocked work room, & studio classrooms, & legit design teachers with projects that relate to what I want to learn about.
And I'm tired of going to school with 40 year old people. Seriously, going from one community college to another is starting to give me a really grim outlook on life. Like I'm destined to always aim & be second rate. I don't want to look at myself that way. For some reason I've always thought I was better than that. I'm torn in two. There's one side of me that's letting go & trying to just accept the reality of things, & then there's the other side that keeps pushing & demanding & expecting something better. And they argue with each other. Maybe I'm really split into three pieces. The third one sits in the middle & listens while the other two tug on each arm, trying to win the majority.
I just want to be in a place where I can be inspired & driven to learn more. But the longer I wait for something.. the more I learn to live without it. If the chance comes too late, it just won't feel relevant--like trying to resurrect something that died a long time ago. I don't want that to happen. I mean, it's kind of already started with the giving up/sacrificing/redirecting of plans, but it's not totally gone.. yet.
But still, it all comes down to money, which I'm constantly reminded that I don't have.
*Tuition for Interior Design*
Art Institute: $6,000/quarter 120-180 credits ($54,360+/81,540+)
WSU: $3,360/10-18credits, 80 credits undergrad? (something might be off)
Cornish: $25,300/12-18credits, 122 credits

Clover Park: $49.71/credit, 124 credits ($6,164+)

I haven't finished uploading all of my Oregon trip pictures. So, after I get around to doing that, I'll be able to edit & upload them, & them blog about my time there. There's actually a ton of things I want to talk about right now, but honestly, painting those shoes has totally worn me out, & all I can do is sigh and go to bed.

Tuesday, May 27, 2008
This is the best "right now" picture of me that I can do (that's me laying my bed with my arm draped over the side, if you can't tell) because that's actually really where I want to be right now. But I can't. Nope. I can't sleep. I tired. And I've just been exhaaaaaaaausted since I got home from taking my grandma to Port Angeles and back. (I'm really glad Forrest came along with me though :D) But for some reason, I just can't take a nap, as much as I'd like/love/need to, I can't. I just lie (lay?) there forever, while Kung Pao Prawns slops around my digestive system. Oh. Maybe it's all that coke I just drake right before I came down to my room. But caffeine usually doesn't have any affect on me at all anymore. I'm pretty sure with how often I down it into my system, I'm nearly immune to it's powers. Maybe I just underestimated the strength of a liter? Well OBVIOUSLY, idiot, YOU CAN'T SLEEP! Ready for one of the most horrible sounding things ever? I'm pretty sure I have a drinking problem, I'm addicted to coke, and my god do I love it. haha :)
False alarm. It was just the Gardasil.
I'm really sleepy. I have a lot of paintings to work on, but it would be so much better if I could just get like 30 minutes in. That's allll I want.....
I just watched Punch Drunk Love at Kim's house, and I'm certain that I am incapable of having a "dirty" conversation with anyone. Maybe that's just how the crazies do it, but seriously, I could never say something like "I want to chew off your face and suck on your eyeballs." No. I'm not seeing how it's physically possible to get off on something like that. And really, when you call someone for phone sex, do they really say "Are you stroking it?", because I personally couldn't say that without snorting afterwards. I guess I'm just not cut out to be an "Audio Erotic Performer" (phrased by Wikipedia). There goes that career path.
Today was an interesting day. An emotionally interesting day. Going from scared, confused, uncertain, shameful, and quiet, to laughing, hugging, kissing, smiling, happy, and relieved. Gardasil throws off your schedule, apparently. I'm hoping that's the case. I'm pretty sure it is. To be on the safe side, we're giving it a few days before we "check". aaaaaand enough about that.
My grandma wants me to drive her out to Port Angeles tomorrow so that she can go to the Goodwill. Are you kidding me? It's Goodwill! Apparently it's a "really good one", (in comparison to all the nearby ones, I guess) and my grandma refuses to go to any other. I don't even know what she's looking for. The last time she wanted to go there, she wanted an extension cord. She wanted to go all the way to Port Angeles for an extension cord. If a "good" Goodwill existed, I would assume it would be in Seattle. You know, the bigger city, with a bigger store, more people, and oh yeah, it's a little closer too. At least she's giving me $50? It doesn't really count for much though, considering the gas prices now. That'll cover the tank. I don't know how I'll pass the time while she's poking around the store though. Maybe I'll paint by the the waterfront. That's my favorite place ever in Port Angeles. I used to go there all the time when I needed to get away from Port Orchard. Maybe Forrest can come with me :)

Saturday, May 24, 2008
So, no, this isn't a "right now" picture of me, but whatever. The webcam is frozen and isn't completely opened, but wont completely close now. [LAME!] and I really don't want to reboot the compy. Not yet, anyway. I'll have to recap since it's been a while from my last post.
- The beach was great! We ended up going to
- My cousins came over that weekend. Sierra's birthday was the upcoming Monday, so we all went to Silverdale to eat at Olive Garden and shop around at the mall. On the way back home we stopped by the Port Orchard waterfront/marina and took some pictures. It was perfect out :)
-Tusday night (maybe?) Forrest came over and... well, I have reason to celebrate. ;) It took me all of the next day to fully realize it, but I have reason. (that's when my into blog picture took place)
-Thursday I had an interview at Desert Sun tanning salon in
-Yesterday Forrest and I went to the Folklife festival. It was fun :) I love Folklife! We ate Kenyan food (I had some delicious vegetable curry), walked around to see some tent shops, listened to some music, watched belly dancers (& I'm now adding that to this year's possible Halloween costume), and then I just had to have a caramel apple with m&ms. I couldn't finish it or anything, but ohhhh man was it worth the slightly sick feeling and tummy ache afterwards! I would totally eat that again. In fact... I kind of feel like making some of that today/tonight. My apples would be cut though. I tell ya, it's a bitch to bite into a sticky apple covered in hard candies. Again, I didn't take that many pictures (like 2? one of the needle, one of the fountain. Both of which I already have somewhere on my compy. None of Forrest and I, again. damnit veronica! Stop being lame!) Still a very good time though. That boy is far too nice to me. I absolutely love it :)
-Today looks fucking AMAZING out and I've decided to not go out at all. Why am I so backwards like that? I just feel like taking it easy today, since we didn't get home until about last night. I did get to photoshopping the pictures from the waterfront (with my cousins) a little, and I want to work on my room a bit. I need to (FINALLY) put up my art on the walls, things on my bulletin board, & hang up my clothes. I should paint a bit, too. I could get a lot of work done with this long weekend.
Friday, May 16, 2008
I have no idea where we're going to go, so hopefully Forrest does (but I have a feeling that he wont and we'll just end up driving until we see a sign for a park with beach access or something).
He should be getting off from school right about now, which may or may not mean that we should be leaving soon. My cousins are coming over for the weekend (for Sierra's birthday). I need to make my room look clean. My room is where everyone usually ends up sleeping when we all get together.
Thursday, May 15, 2008
I need to get away for a little bit, re-organize my head, get my priorities straight, get away from my friends, do something different, be productive, feel special... I know it's just me feeling incredibly lame today, but my friends kind of made me feel a little worthless today. :( I was really looking forward to getting out and away from my house (where the lame day originated from) but I didn't really get the happy balance I was looking for. I know I'm capable of fixing myself, but I've become so tired of doing that :( I guess I kind of want to always be able to depend on someone else, but I remember why we (I'm talking to myself, about myself at this point) don't give our 100% out. I really do need to recollect myself. I'm feeling a little teary. =/
Maybe it's time to shift gears back to focusing on myself. It's a little lonelier perhaps, but that way anything else (company, conversation, plans) would just be a bonus. I'm not exactly looking forward to that idea. Maybe it's not the right one then.
Something's not working.
I can't believe I just wasted all this time doing a survey. Better here than a myspace bulletin, though. Kim's the only one who even really gives a shit to read things like this, so I think I'm in the clear as far as personal answers "getting out".
This blog doesn't have any pictures :( BUT! I promise after this weekend I'll have some good stuff. The plan is to hopefully go out to the beach on Friday (please be 86 degrees out), (and over the course of the rest of the weekend) dinner/movie/shopping with my cousins, and maybe Seattle? Good stuff, I hope.
On a side note, today the power went out. TOTALLY lame, especially since I was in the middle of filling out an electronic application @ Albertsons.
I'm sleepy :(

Of course Kim and I camera whored a little. I'm telling you, the ability to control the lighting settings on the camera is an amazing thing. Just look at that color! It looks like it's a wonderful, nice, sunny day! Is it?! Noooo, that's just the "cloudy" option on the camera! Really though, it's a great thing. :)
We ended up hanging out in front of Emelio's house for a while, watching a (Chamorro? Guamanian? Whatever, brown. How's that?) family playing volleyball with their shirts off. I don't know how they were doing it; it was goddamned freezing outside. Oh, and we had some argument about how (plug in) lawn mowers and vacuum cleaners were/were not related to each other. I'm pretty sure I won with the THEY ARE KIND OF LIKE THE SAME THING! Yes, I know vacuum cleaning do not have blades. But, "Bristles are to vacuums as blades are to _____." LAWN MOWERS! They're similar. See it? Yeah, I do.
I think we got to Seattle about 8 or so, which meant that we had an hour to kill before the show started. We ate food :) There was this cute pizza place right across the street from Chop Suey that we decided to stop at. We ordered a Veggie Pizza :) I absolutely love it people do something a differently just for me. Really though, like, it just puts a smile on my face.
I just think it's really lame when people are assholes about the fact that I don't eat meat. Get over it. It's nothing new. (I'm thinking of a particular self-ruining, back-stabbing bitch when I say this) but I just hate it when "people" try to get me to eat meat, and just say stupid things. Like, "why can't you be normal?" or "you're missing out on this." No, actually I'm not missing anything. And then my favorite is when I'll be like "Hey, try some of these vegetables/tofu/soy-something" and "they're" like "Eww, no. Gross." Your face is gross, I hate you, so shut up. Oh jeez, I didn't mean to get myself into a rant. BACK ON TRACK!
Tennis Pro played first. I didn't like them. Actually, I'm pretty sure we all didn't like them. They've got a cute concept, calling themselves "Tennis Pro" and then wearing preppy outfits on stage, but I just don't really dig their music. When everyone's playing random things at the same time, it just kind of sounds like noise. Sorry boys. Kim and I kept looking at each other with "are they seriously playing this?" expressions on our faces. (I asked Kim to show me what her "face while watching Tennis Pro" was. That's it to the left.) Oh yeah, and one of Emelio is his version of a creepin' on sort of stare. Haha, oh, I have funny friends.
The Lonely Forrest played second and I loooooooooooved them. Oh man, I was so excited to see them play. (I can tell you I definitely wasn't there for Ludo) They started their set off with "We Sing in Time" and it was ASDFALIEWJOAIENJ!@#$ amazing. Even more so live. I like their band, and they're only a 3-piece. That's impressive, especially for how great they sound. I'm pretty much in love with singer guy's voice (and ability to belt out while playing piano) and with bass player's face. (But he's blonde! I know, how weird. I don't usually dig the blondies.) I bought the very last demo of their's for $3 instead of 5. :) Thank you The Lonely Forest. I love youu.
We left 2 songs into Ludo's set. Kim had a midnight curfew.
On a semi-personal note, I really like going out to places with Forrest. I'm still surprised by how nice he is to me. Not that I don't think he's capable to being nice, it's just.. it's always a nice, appreciative surprise to be treated like that. But I like going to places with him. I've been trying to work on being out in public and around friends while with Forrest. It's always been (in the past) kind of a weird thing to try and balance who I am when I'm dating someone and who I am with my friends (or to the rest of the world). After talking with the girls a few weeks back, my new mental project is to combine those two (different) sides of me. It's been really great though, because now I can have that fun, carefree, silly, comfortable side with someone who makes me giddy at the same time. :)
I'm tired of trying to edit this stupid thing. Here's The Lonely Forest.
