flashback friday.

most are from 21 feb.

2005 -
i was listening to david essex "rock on"

- that songs makes me think of my cousin erik and luke

i had the hardest time falling asleep last night. might have been because maggs was dreaming about chasing who knows what and his paws were moving and kept scratching my wall, or because my mind was racing with all these artsy creations i wanted to do, or because i could not stop thinking about something, or because i could not keep my mind off camp and all the fun things i want to do to prepare for it and the fun things i can't wait to do while i am there, whatever the reason was i had to reset the sleep timer on my iPod after the first 90 minutes for another hour.

you may not know but i get bored with things easy. which is weird because i also hate change. hmmm imagine that. i am so tired of the same routine everyday at riley, trinity, and class. i think part of the reason is because i just really don't want to be there or doing that. i have definitely decided that i won't be going on in this field once i graduate. i just get so phased out sometimes. like driving up to school it is so routine and i find myself spaced out, i feel like i am just going through the motions. i hate that! it is funny how excited i get for something a little out of the ordinary. whether talking to someone unexpected on the phone, a birthday party at riley, or a package in the mail.

excitement for today was a birthday party, a care bear one, and being on the radio. i won the new delirious? cd for knowing switchfoot lyrics. it was so cool! i talked to tower, the radio guy, for awhile. he is fun and i was happy because when he said "so your name is shell? like the gas station?" and i replied "right, but with only one l" and he said "oh so like shel silverstein?" yes yes yes! then we talked about how great shel silverstein really is. i once memorized his poem 'sick' for my acting class at the library i was in when i was real little and dreamed of making it big and starring in a movie with jonathan taylor thomas. awww those were the days!

wanting to draw but must finish lesson plans...
