survival never goes out of style. [entries|friends|calendar]
sam.

do you remember those falling stars we used to wish upon?
each one breathed a promise of a new tomorrow
crushed beneath the weight of the world.
you taught me the futility of hope.

4 empty dreams towish me away.

you're just somebody that i used to know. [29 Mar 2007|02:59am]
maybe it's the bell sleeved baby blue shirt i wore when my hair was long and not quite this blonde and i was the queen of an arcade not too far away or the way you wore that soft shirt on my sixteenth birthday and i held you until you told me you had to leave. but it's a love of the past and not the present.

bored at work. [12 Sep 2006|12:59pm]
i am going to take this time and space in order to express the fact that all of the boys i know who used to be relatively attractive now look relatively homeless.


beards
okay, i get it. you're manly, grizzly, dangerous. you have better things to do than shave. you are post-pubescent. congratulations. don't get me wrong, some of you can pull the beards off, lest they get out of hand. however, most of you look like you've crawled out from under a park bench.

this effect is worse combined with...

long, straggly hair
okay, so hardcore is done and in the post-post generation, men don't care about their coiffed haircuts. long, unwashed hair is far from attractive. you looked better three years ago.

the same goes for...

irony in dress
save it for your taste in music, your tattoos, and your literary theory.

lack/neglect of hygiene
i used to complain about the fact that boys were wearing the same jeans as me (and sometimes pulling them off better than i could, *sigh*) and spending a bit too much time on their hair...(okay, i not-so-secretly lusted after them as well, but i did complain)... it's nice to see some "real men" in our midsts but please, by all means shower. unless you really are homeless or a squatter this isn't okay. not using deodorant does not make you more european.


the list goes on, but well, i have more important things to do.

at least straight edge is over.

milamoon (4:03:32 PM): i compiled a list of faculty members
MariannePaul (4:03:59 PM): fine.... you've decide to concentrate on finding yourself a faculty member... this is good...
MariannePaul (4:04:18 PM): look to the psychology department... free meds are good as well
milamoon (4:04:53 PM): hahaha
MariannePaul (4:04:56 PM): you would make an excellent psychiatrist... you grew up in a house for the insane

since you last heard from the insufferable drunkard, i have moved to astoria where i sit presently. last weekend i went to a crazy and amazing party with 2 of my new roommates. best pick up line ever delivered to me must be noted, "could you come to the bathroom with me and wash the black off my face? i'm on e so it'll feel awesome"

on monday, i saw mogwai. the rest of the week, in addition to work and school, there was anytime, slyfox, botanica, roosevelt island rooftop, climax, fitzgeralds, sly fox again. my cousin was visiting from fla and we spent some quality time and ate some quality food. i worked the armory show all weekend, which was somewhat interesting and profitable. we had a fun party here saturday and i made money tending bar as well. my cousin convinced me to go to florida next week. and the new bartender at fitz's gives me even more free drinks than the last.

and sleep has been scattered and i must try to get some now.

good night. good night. good night.
wish me away.

mental breakdown, much?
2 empty dreams towish me away.

[18 Feb 2006|05:57pm]
i fell over a bicycle last night and walked in the wrong direction from monika's without noticing because i'm a moron... i looked up and realized i was on montrose. i, of course, didn't want to walk all the way back and the l wasn't running and it was cold and i just wanted to get on the g train. (which is odd to say) so i waved a cab down and somehow convinced him that i was a battered woman (hey, he said it first... in fact he asked me, are you a battered woman? so, not wanting to disappoint him, i said yes) he tried to take me to a home for abused women fleeing their husbands.

i might move to a collective in astoria... i might move in with tammy uptown... i might move in with ashley? (granted, there are issues with each of these situations)

i haven't written in this for a month. for anyone who cares, basically, i've been working a ridiculous amount and i've cleaned myself up a wee bit because god knows i needed it.
wish me away.

leaving. [10 Jan 2006|02:59pm]
in case i've yet to tell you, the building i've been living in is going to be knocked down so the ceiling doesn't cave and we don't die horrible deaths. i need to leave by march, but should leave by february. so, i believe i will soon settle into a life of couches.

operation: get yo' act together. [04 Jan 2006|09:30am]
it is 9:30 am boys and girls and i am awake for the first time in a long time. it is time to end my five or so month long drinking binge and get down to business. i had reverted back to the young glassy eyed girl with low self esteem that i was in the past for quite a while, and it is time to put down the whiskey and disco fries and pick up those books, put those fingers to the keys, eat mostly oatmeal and get on with it. luckily, this time around, i still managed to get my glowing grades and also to secure a good job that will (hopefully) prove quite helpful in the future. but no more sleeping until 4pm, it is time to be the wired girl you know and love. so here's to trying to go back to the way i was in the not so distant past, but to holding on to bits and pieces of honesty and fun i've let myself have lately. i'm off to dye my hair and join the gym and write not-so-short fiction. (i have some good material that i've compiled in the last few months, if i can manage to piece it all together)... i didn't stay 18 forever and i'm questioning the fact that i ever tried.

p.s. stacey how you put up with me and don't hate me is a wonder.
p.p.s. jersey people please get in touch with me, i would like to see most of you soon.

love always and faithfully,
sam i am and always will be
