I have been going through this long stretch of self loathing and it kind of needs to stop. Any tips on how to get a positive outlook on life? because I could use one.

Apr. 14th, 2009

Today I woke up grouchy and went to try to fix my phone or get it replaced to no avail and went and bought the wrong book for an online class and so I have given up and plan to do nothing but stay in bed and cuddle with my cat and maybe watch a movie.

I COULD KILL SOMEONE!

I just got a D in my fucking online class at PCC, after getting A's on every single assignment and on both the midterm and the final because I couldn't get a paper REDONE in time and I TOLD the professor about my laptop. WHAT A FUCKING CUNT!

I swear to god I'm going to have a meltdown if this fucks with my financial aid!

PS Crying does not help a horrible head cold.

Don't trust a plastic beat!

I just realized how bittersweet it is to listen to my favorite band right now. I'm listening to Super Taranta laughing and dancing and singing along, but I'm still SO sad that it's going to be months before I see them again. I MISS GOGOL BORDELLO! I can't help but think of shows and friends and after parties when I listen to any of their stuff and just, wahhhhh!

I honestly can't remember the last time I didn't have a ticket for an upcoming show. Sure they were usually months out, but I always had dates to look forward to, now it's just this vague, they will probably tour over the summer sentiment.

And yes, I understand that a five month break is necessary when you tour 9 or 10 months out of the year, but I can't help but feel a little sorry for myself (not to mention all of my friends that feel the same way about this music and band) I NEED A CURE OR A FIX!

I want to go to other shows, but honestly it's hard to not go "yeah, that was good but.... MY BAND IS BETTER!"

No, THIS is Spinal Tap

I spent the entire day yesterday in the ER getting all sorts of tests done. I went in with the worst migraine of my life that had been going on for like 36 hours. They started by putting in an IV (I cried when they said I had to have one, but not when they were actually putting it in) and then I had a CT scan because they thought I might have a brain tumor. The CT scan only showed a completely full right sinus with sever sinusitis, so they decided a lumbar puncture (AKA A FUCKING SPINAL TAP) was the next thing. Again, I cried a lot a lot before the actual procedure ("i don't want to do this! i don't think i can do this!!") but not at all during. The lumbar puncture showed that I had an elevated cerebra-spinal fluid pressure which indicated something called pseudo-tumor disorder which means that you produce more spinal fluid then you need which causes a build up of pressure, hence migraine. Because neither the CT scan or lumbar puncture were completely conclusive the next procedure was an MRI. Totally non-invasive but honestly the one that freaked me out the most. It was like being in a fucking loud coffin for 30 minutes. I had a really hard time not panicking.

ANYWAY, at the end of all this I have nothing other than severe sinusitis (which is being treated) and an appointment to get my eyes checked so I can get glasses. I had a follow up with an eye doctor today who ruled out all the maybes, so now I know for sure it was in fact an extremely bad migraine made worse by sinusitis.

I'm making the call to get reading glasses because I think the amount of reading I have to do for school definitely helped this little episode along.

Any cute frame ideas? I'm pretty much going for obnoxious. If someone could find me ones like the fashion designer lady from The Incredibles I would be eternally grateful.

Vacation!!

I am in Philadelphia! My vacation has probably been the best I have ever been on.

Highlights so far

*Seeing NYC for the first time.
*Meeting Anna and Alison.
*Seeing and spending lots of time with Liz and Mo (who I already miss).
*Gogol Bordello 4 times so far
*Ringing in the New Year with GB and a fucking dragon full of mummers (google) while covered in glitter and balloons.
*Dancing like a total and complete asshole at afterparties.
*Getting hugs and kisses from clowns today in Philly while watching the end of a parade "THERE SHE IS!!! *kiss* ITS YOUR YEAR I CAN FEEL IT!"

I leave for DC tomorrow where I will hopefully find tickets that are being scalped or I will set sail on the fail boat back to the hotel and then meet everyone at the afterparty. I come home the morning of the 4th to start school on the 5th. This year is going to be fucking awesome? How can it not be when I got to ring it in with amazing people and my band while on a great vacation!

I will post a more detailed blow by blow account when I return and my PGD is setting in.

Against the nature, against the grain.

So in 24 days I will be flying to Denver to pick up Marissa and from there we will be catching a flight to NYC. In New York we will be meeting up with Alycia, Liz, Mo, Alison, Merinne, Anna, and some of the other forum members I have yet to meet/talk to. It's pretty much going to be the UN of ave b. (Liz came up with this I can't take credit.)

There is this whole other bonus of 3 GOGOL BORDELLO SHOWS IN 4 DAYS AND A DAY OFF IN NEW YORK CITY WHERE I HAVE NEVER BEEN BEFORE!!! A big group of us are actually renting an apartment while we are there instead of getting a hotel and I am so excited! Party party afterparty!

You know, I love this band sosoososososo much, but I am truly more excited to see my friends! Bickering with Alycia while screaming about John Mayer? Marissa and I threatening each other with fake stories about being fan girls or band stalkers? EVERYONE teasing me mercilessly about 'old timey photos' (JESUS GET THAT MEMORY OUT OF MY HEAD!) Buying Alison lots of drinks as a feeble attempt at thanks for the forum and website, and of course paying off door men to get Liz into after parties? Then finding ourselves running through the rain (or snow more likely) while drunkenly singing "BRASILLLLLLLLLLLLL LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LAAAAAAAAAAA"

SIGN ME UP AND LETS SKIP ALL THE TIME IN BETWEEN! LET ME OUT, LET ME BE GONE!!!
