So. Been meaning to make an entry. But.


I FOUND A STORE IN SEATTLE TO TRANSFER TOO. FFFFWOO I'M MOVING. Fan-fucking-tastically enough as well, it's the closest Starbucks to Lai's house, so it's totally within walking distance. Hell. Yes. I will be transferring late June (no set date yet), so up until then I will be boxing things up to mail to Lai ahead of time, and getting rid of a TON of crap. Since my parents are moving too, to much smaller places, I really need to get rid of like, EVERYTHING that I can't take to Seattle. Aaaaaa. 8|

I really, really hope my new manager and co-workers are all as awesome and positive as my crew has been here. Really, this store makes me flat-out love my job, and I really think it's helped me to become a better person overall. Let no bad happen. Thank you infinitely to all the support and advice you guys have given me, it's helped so much. I haven't murdered anyone yet. :D Looking forward to seeing you again, Ber! Leanna and Chuck, I think about you two DAILY, and it kind of breaks my heart and kills me inside to think that I'd never see either of you again, so... Something must be done. Eventually.

Trees. Ocean. Spirits. Life. I'm going back to where I belong, I can almost feel my aura waking up again already. ~

And I don’t know where you went when you left me, but -
says here in the water, you must be gone by now.
I can tell somehow.
One hand on the trigger of a telephone,
wondering when the call comes,
will you say it's alright,
you got your heart right?

Maybe I'll sleep inside my coat, and
Wait on your porch 'till you come back home -
Oh, right.
I can’t find a flight.

We share the sadness.
Split screen sadness.

Two wrongs make it all alright tonight
Two wrongs make it all alright tonight
Two wrongs make it all alright tonight
Two wrongs make it all alright tonight

"All you need is love" is a lie, 'cause
we had love but we still said goodbye.
Now we're tired, battered fighters.

And it stings when it's nobody's fault, 'cause there's
nothing to blame at the drop of your name.
It's only the air you took and the breath you left.

So maybe I'll sleep inside my coat and
wait on your porch 'til you come back home -
Oh, right.
I can't find a flight.
So I'll check the weather wherever you are,
'cause I wanna know if you can see the stars tonight.
It might be my only right.

We share the sadness.
(two wrongs make it all alright tonight)
Split screen sadness.
(two wrongs make it all alright tonight)
We share the sadness.
(two wrongs make it all alright tonight)
Split screen sadness.
(two wrongs make it all alright tonight)

I called
because
I just
need to feel you on the line.
Don't hang up this time.
And I know it was me who called it over but
I still wish you'd fought me 'til your dying day.
Don't let me get away.

Cause I can't wait to figure out what's wrong with me,
so I can say "This is the way that I used to be."
There's no substitute for time -


Or for the sadness
Split screen sadness.
We share the sadness,
Split screen sadness.

Oh and the sadness, it's alright, it's alright.
Oh and the sadness, it's alright, it's alright.
Oh and the sadness, it's alright, it's alright...
Oh and the sadness, it's alright, it's alright...

"There's a house across the river, but alas, I cannot swim,
And a garden of such beauty that the flowers seem to grin.
There's a house across the river, but alas, I cannot swim.
I'll live my life regretting that I never jumped in.

There's a boy across the river with short black curly hair,
He wants to be my lover, and I want to be his peer.
There's a boy across the river but alas, I cannot swim,
And I never will get to put my arms around him.

There's a life across the river that was meant for me,
Instead I live my life in constant misery.
There's a life across the river but I do not see
Why I should please those that will never be pleased.

There is gold across the river but I don't want none,
There is gold across the river but I don't want none.

Gold is fleeting, gold is fickle, gold is fun.
(Gold is fleeting, gold is fickle, gold is fun.)

There is gold across the river, but I don't want none.
I would rather be dry than held up by a golden gun,

Saying work more and we'll live more, have more fun.
Saying work more and we'll live more, have more fun.
Saying work more and we'll live more, have more fun."


It's where I am, but not how I want it to be.

Below, please post the four seasons, in order. I'll post the results once people stop commenting, and edit those results if I get late replies.

Thank you for your time. :>

I really need to learn to drive. Damn I just feel so inhibited. My parents are complete torture to drive with, though, since they both yell and grip their seats and make me feel like the worst driver ever. I'm pretty sure I'm not, but damn. So stressful. Perhaps if I seem pathetic enough I can convince some friends from work to drive with me in a parking lot somewhere, ahaha. ;; Lai realized (quite a while back) that Texas sucks, so he's back in Washington and is doing spectacularly. His dad got a fancy apartment in Seattle so he's no longer in Sequim, and he's working for his dad's company that he's established and is getting paid nicely. I really want to visit very soon, and August is looking like a good month. I could use a break from Texas, too. :I

In happier news, my job at Starbucks is pretty much the best ever. :'D There is not a single person I work with that isn't absolutely friendly and awesome, and aside from having to work occasional early morning shifts (which are long and hectic and exhausting), I am completely pleased. What's MORE, yesterday while closing about half of us (as in, half of everyone that works there total. XD) decided we're all going out on (possibly) Friday to get random piercings! LOL YAAAYY. It's not quite so random for me, though, since I've been wanting my septum pierced for quite a long time. Now all I have to worry about is telling my parents. ;; I just hope the fact that a septum piercing can be easily hidden lessens the blow. I'm getting it done regardless but urggg. I don't really want to get it done and just keep it hidden from them, you know? I hate keeping secrets. Plus, I'm a total doof, so I would totally forget to flip it up one day and be like "LOL HI MOM", upon which I am promptly slaughtered. Mi mama recently figured out I'm stretching my ears, too, and she wasn't quite pleased with that, even though I want to keep them relatively tiny. Ahaha~ ;;

Ah well. Sucks to have parents that don't realize my age. :>

Lai's been in Washington the last several days, visiting his dad, enjoying Seattle weather, etc. He was due to come back today, but now he's stuck in Salt Lake City until tomorrow morning because of delayed flights and a transfer plane leaving without him. 8C

So sad. Poor Lai, I hope he catches his plane okay tomorrow. Hrrrhhh. The air port gave him a free hotel and two meals, though, so at least he's not in a completely horrible situation. ;;

SOOO, the sea world thing didn't work out at all. Ahaha... I guess I was somewhat expecting it, what with me having no experience bottle feeding beluga whales and whatnot. :| IN HAPPIER NEWS, I had an interview at Starbucks today! Oh jeez I hope it works out. I've been wanting to work there forever. uugghgh. 8C They call me in about a week, we'll see.

Whooo~ It's been a long time! I've been fine lately, having recovered from a failed job at the Target deli (I quit, it was horrid. I was very sad, I wanted my first job to be something nice and not hazardous to my health, at least). So, tomorrow I go in for an interview at SEA WORLD~! 8O

It's actually a second interview, I passed the first test I suppose, ahaha. It's for working in the education department for summer camp, to be exact! Ohoho SO FUN. I would be teaching kids about all kinds of wonderful sea critters, and getting to learn a lot in the process. This would also be awesome because I'll get to know a lot of the biologists and trainers, since there's a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff involved.

I've been really thinking I'd be so much happier going into zoology rather than straight art for future careers, so this will be wonderful. 8< I just love animals so damn much, and frankly... professional art kinda scares me. I mean, I LOVE ART, but to devote the whole rest of my life to just doing nothing but it, with the only purpose of doing so to make money and constant production... I don't think I'd like it. :< I'd much, MUCH prefer to go to college to primarily focus on animal sciences, with *some* art classes on the side. I still want to progress with my art, and I actually want to use it in the future in conjunction with what I learn about animals, to teach other people. Illustrated books and such. I just really don't think I would be very happy surviving solely on my art alone, plus I just think animals need so much more help. So many people just don't seem to care about them like I do. :C

Hoh hum. Wish me luck. ♥
