  Holy shit I haven't posted on this sucker in what feels like YEARS!! I'm a senior in high school now... damn, somebody wanna clue me in on when the hell that happened? Damn Facebook and it's lack of chat- Walls < blogs. Anyway, um I just suddenly realized that half the reason I had this thing was to talk to people that I haven't heard from in about as long due to a myriad number of circumstances. Go figure. I mostly am just editing the bad grammar from the old days because yes, I have become that anal retentive ("Enmglish and "gootball?"), and right now the little red line under Facebook is really bothering me. I'm probably gonna get rid of all of this since I have zero interest in reading any of it. I more of a "use-a-journal-for-catharsis" person than a "Aw gee, was I a cute obnoxious arrogant prick in sophomore year? Aww..." *cough* *vomit,* no, just no.
Mere curiosity begs the question "I wonder if anyone will respond to this, or is everybody else also out busy having a life?" Then again, it's 11:30, and I just got home from work an hour and a half ago, was inundated the minute I walked through the door, and I've got a trip to the city tomorrow- sooo I'm not really freaking out about the whole... ya know... responsibility/work/you're less than a year away from being an adult so act like it thing.

In a Titanic crewman's voice "Is anybody alive out there? Can anybody hear me? ...."

Full Circle...   
09:53pm 11/11/2006
 
mood: nostalgic
Have you ever reached that point where everything you've hoped for and wished, verses everything you're trying to run away from or rise above comes full circle? I feel like I've done that, and maybe it'll change and maybe it won't but who knows? I mean for a long time, and we're talkin' a looooooong time all I ever wanted to do was get the hell outta Jersey/the Lehigh Valley. Not become anything resembling, well, *any* of my family members, and just enver look back. But it's almost like in some sick strange way I've amde peace with that, and I don't feel the need to go off to the city, or Ireland or California or any of the millions of places I've thought of going to because when you get down to it, sure Jersey can be hell, but it's a hell I know, and leaving wouldn't do much for me anyway. I've got all I need here, and sure I'd like to see many parts of the world and stuff, but it's like manifest destiny. Like I'm gonna be drawn back here, and that's okay because all I want to do, I can do right here. I dunno, just random thoughts.

New Rant: How good is the acceptance of something appropo?   
10:45pm 25/06/2006
  Okay, now I'm not saying that new things such as womans, civil, gay, or transgendered rights are a bad thing to accept. (Oh, and anything else I haven't thought of)

Okay now, let the politically incorrectness begin....

Okay, so I was at a movie tonight, Click, for those of you interested, and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be (I was in the mood for a cheap thrill, so shoot me). At one point during the movie there's a line that says something like
"Oh, and Allison prefers to be called Allan (Allen?) now."
Then they pan over to show some ridiculous caracature of an ftm transgendered person. So, even though transsexuality has become politically correct to talk about in the liberal side, and even part of the conservative side, of things, that means that it's now accepted enough to be made into a joke. Transsexualtiy is at the point that I'm sure homosexuality was probably once at. The general order of operations, if you will, is that first the thing/idea/whatever exists. If this noun is somehow unnacceptable, it stays underground for a good long time, hundreds if not thousands of years if you will, in some cultures. (I say this because the idea of the two-spirit and homosexuality was perfectly accepted in the native american culture)Then eventually, it starts to build up, until finally we're able to acknowledge it's existance. Once the acknowledgement has occured then, there is the whole attitude of "Oh well that ridiculous *fill in the blank*, God I can't believe anyone would do/feel/follow that," just so that they aren't the recipients of mock and ridicule from those who develope a fear of said newly acknowledged thing. Then once the fear-mocking begins, begins the play-along mockings, and suddenly, this things that was just starting to peak it's head out into open air to try to score a little acceptance/sympathy is shot down from all side, and is totally fair game as far as people are concerned. I think that homo and bi sexuality are being taken a little more seriously these days particularily given all of the press that the issue has been receiving in terms of marriage rights, but transsexuality is pretty near the whole peaking it's head outt into open air stage.
So, I find myself with blod boiling at the sight of a godknowswhat with the worst haircut/cloths/demeanor/EVERYTHING I've ever seen on a man or woman. This is progress, this is cheap comedy, and sadly cheap automatically means immature. So maybe one day I won't walk into my band class and hear my band teacher say "oh yes and so-and-so just recently changed instrument... and gender!" and maybe someday I won't go to the theatre home for a light movie to ease my mood after being stuck in the house with little outside world contact and get stuck staring at a caracature that I know is probably the only impression the majority of the world will get of transsexuality and it's absolutely ridiculous and down right wrong.
And so my blood boiled, and even though the film wasn't bad, my evening, and generally content state of my, was ruined.

And it continues to boil.

My First Real Post in the Span of Foreverness   
06:18pm 21/06/2006
  First to aid in nyour understanding of my rant I direct you to this article:
http://news.yahoo.com/s/usatoday/20060620/tc_usatoday/techcreatesabubbleforkids

Okay, so we live in technilogical bubbles do we aye? Gee letss look at life for the average teenager. We're kids of the eighties and early ninties, born in the land of post-red scare, office going father, minivan toting soccer mom, chocolate chip cookie baking grandmother, and the grandfather with the WWII stories. So lets not generalize or anything *cough* but lets really look at what life is like for teenagers these days. Let me guess many of your parents both work jobs to make ends meet right? I know mine did, my mom worked as a professor at the local community college, an my dad attempted to start up a domed lawn buisness for quite a number of years. Hence who was I left living with? My grandparents, or my dad at night while she (my mom) was teaching. Both grandparents weren't able to get around very easily, so basically me, and my cousins, when over, were plopped in front of the tv and fed all kinds of crap that my now vegetarian self cringes most deeply at.

Okay now admittedly that's just me but between day care, Semsame Street, video games and computers, and the world of two parents working, what can I say, it kept kids like us off the streets. Now it's not just the world of two working parents. Let's get real, how many of you guys out there have parents that are divourced, separated, or maybe even have two step-parents, and step-siblings at this point? Statistics say that 50% of all marriages end in divource. Now that's not even taking into account the kids who's parents were never even married in the first place. Maybe it's escaped the notice of people who write such articles, but you CANNOT expect some sort of Shangra-la 40's, 50's, and even 60's sort of rules to apply in a different time.

Okay either way you may be asking, okay what's the point of explaining all of this? Here's my point: technology has been the one stable thing in a lotof our lives. When my parents were fighting and screaming it was always "Drina, go watch tv," and this from my anti-tv mother. But you know what? Tvs, and cd players, and boom boxes, and computers all have this brilliant little thing called volume control that can help tune out the fighting or what have you.

So I guess the gist of what I'm saying is this; in this new millenium of iPods, cellphone, and laptops we, as the "hip teenage generation" stay hip to the new technology coming out, as do many others, but we seem to live and breathe the stuff seeing as it's helped us through some of our hard times, good times, lonely times, or just plain boredom. So I say three cheers for our little bubbles since the rest of the world seems so keen on keeping us out in the first place.

Oh and if you're small minded enough to automatically presume that blue hair means some sort of slacker bad ass hoodlum, then you're lack of open-mindedness isn't worth trying to gain the respect of.

More to be added later otherwise this is Dri, signing off.
Cheers!

I'd like to take this time to...   
08:55pm 20/04/2006
  Well, first off I want to post this writing that I just found whilst researching Act Up! written by Charles Clifton.
Ain'tCollapse )
On that note I would like to tell everyone about the AIDs walk that will be going on in New York on Sunday, May 21st. I know Erin has already sent in her registration form, and I'm in the process of convincing my mom to let me go. I urge all of you to try and make it as well. Let's try to fix some of the issues on the home front since the governement is too busy abroad to notice that this ships been sinking fast for the past twenty-five+ years. The sad thing is that this is only one of so many catastrophies that might have been averted had we gotten off our pretentious high horses and just got real.

At this point I'm tired of sitting on my ass because someone might not like what I have to shout while running down the halls, and because people don't want to be reminded that it's bloody well time for them to open up their eyes.
I'm tired of a lazy country.
So let's give them a shitload of hell folks, it's been awhile, and I think it's time we had another round of 'those agitators.

OH! and also, Day of Silence is coming up soon. I myself will be wearing duct tape over my mouth being that I have rather a hard time of keeping it shut, but it also gets it noticed more than just sitting quiet for a day. I know Erin was going to look up rainbow coloured duct tape for the occasion, I'll have to poke her about that but either way I urge you please participate!!! Our silence one just this one day is really what os many are going through everyday.

Give 'em hell!

Today was a good day.   
06:32pm 08/03/2006
  I wandered around town with Peter Feeney. I found a frisbee sitting ontop of some recycling, I grabbed it. Peter and I both then went over to my mom's office. She had cookies. We ate the cookies. The English in these sentences is far more complex than the English on the mother fucking god damnit to hell cock sucking pussy eating TerraNovas. We should have had to base our movie on Howel, not some fucking dumbass poem about Freeways and cars. I mean a poem about cars and freeways could be cool in an urban isolationists commentary on our political and economic dependence on all of this shit, but NO!
Otherwise things are going well. Otherwise, Matt's in Colorado, but still calls everyday. Haha, Peter Feeney thinks that Matt is shifty -snerk-. Well that's life now ain't it?

I NEED to let out my inner artistic nutcase and just go at it. I think I wanna go collect stuff to make art off the streets this weekend. So somewhere between whatever I pick up and the two shirts I'm willing to axe, I'm SURE I can come up with SOMEHTING interesting, ither than the beer bottle on black cloth chocker that I'm working on right now. Any ideas for house hold materials anyone????? Eh, at least I'm getting writing down for some songs, so at least SOMETHING is coming along but I just need to make something with my hands, it's been a really long time, that that itch hasn't been scratched.

  Creyo que todo el mundo está loco. Todos los, o muchos de los personas a cerca de mí están en el medio de un crisis de vida. Es possible que esta no es la verdad pero muchos personas están un poco.. no se, pero no están normalmente. La razon de este, y porque este es en español es porque mí maestra de español no está en la escuela por dos o tres días, y entonces yo quiero hablar en español cuando ella no va a escuchando a mí y todos los cosas que yo digo a mis amigas (o amigos) en español. Okay that went absolutely no where but err yeah. I think the whole world has gotten picken up by a giant spatula and has been flipped upside down on it's ass. Would someone please explain why everyone, including madre mundo herself is going NUTZ! (Yes that 'z' was necessary.) Otherwise this is my failing attempt at trying to get some sort of life pumping through the veins of this community which seems to have keeled over, and died a rather uninteresting, New York death that is only being noticed by myself now because of the stench of too much f-page spam. So if anybody's got anything even remotely insiteful worth posting or comment, PLEASE DO SO! Oh yeah, and I would also like to attempt to organize our next outing of a night of trouble making out on the town completely with sticky string, lighters, marshmellows, well the works I guess, and yes I do think I know of a good lot to chill in, it's in the McCarter district, which we never seem to parembulate on over to, and should. Damn that was a long sentence, chocked full of comma splices I'm sure. Well uhh yeah, because I'm not procrasting my homeowrk or anything O:-) <.< >.>
Paz y amor a todos
