...There's a Red House Over Yonder...

Umm... It's been forever. Please forgive... :( So an update.. I'm living.. I own things like a blender, mixer, coffee maker, cutting board, toaster oven and other random things for the kitchen. I do laundry.. every Saturday because that's when my clothes run out (not all of my clothes, just the ones I like wearing). I have to clean my own kitchen and the bathroom... I buy groceries for heaven's sake.. it's a nutty world. I wouldn't have ever of imagined that my life would start so soon. I'm simply 19 and living a 23 year old life. I should be at some college dorm.. sleeping until noon then rushing to class, instead I wake up at 6:16 every morning and shower and go to a job that I dislike.. I want so badly to be a writer. Anyway.. I'm starting to get less and less homesick... I mean certain things still remind me of home, as they always will, like the sound of a motorcycle reminds me of my dad.. and how much pride I had watching him ride down the highway. I heard "Red House" by Jimi Hendrix.. and I was reminded of spoonbilling :) and all those nights spent at the shop, drinking and listening to music. Driving while the sun shines reminds me of driving down backroads, just to go driving because there wasn't anything else to do. I hear "Come on Eileen" and I think of prom and English class... So many things mean so much to me and when I'm reminded of home, I can't decide whether I want to smile or cry. It's amazing how much you appreciate what you had when it's all 2.5 hours away from you.

The current mood of unwlawchick at

I'm typically the type of person to keep to myself because I find my own traits very unattractive. I'd rather have no one know how I really feel. But then again, sometimes I can be compassionate and sometimes I can be beautiful. Usually it just depends upon how the moon is at night and how the sunlight falls on my face. Sometimes, I can be myself without even thinking of the consequences it might render.
