What I hate

Daylight Savings Time.

I mean, come on. Is it really necessary? I mean who likes to get off work and have it be pitch black outside? I for one do not.

So, it lieu of my hatred for Daylight Savings Time....

I've decided to boycott it. That's right my friends. I will act as if the time change never happened. I might show up an hour early for everything, but at least when I get off of work it will still be light out.

Cause that's how I roll.

I ran across this song a couple of days ago and when I read the lyrics I thought it was pretty relevant not only for our society, but also for myself at times. I think mostly it's because we want to use people for our gain, satisfaction or pleasure. And I don't know if we really care about the other people around us. If you honestly asked most people in relationships what they enjoy about it, they might list off the different qualities about the other person, but then they would also list how that person fulfills certain aspectations. What is it about us that causes us to be so selfish and focus solely on our own needs, wants, or desires?

I want a lover I don't have to love
I picked you out of a crowd and talked to you
I said I liked your shoes
You said, "Thanks, can I follow you?"
So it's up the stairs and out of view
No prying eyes
I poured some wine
I asked your name, you asked the time

Now it's two o'clock
The club is closed
We're up the block
Your hands on me; Pressing hard against your jeans
Your tongue in my mouth, trying to keep the words from coming out
You didn't care to know who else may have been here before

I want a lover I don't have to love
I want a girl who's too sad to give a f*ck
Where's the kid with the chemicals?
I thought he said to meet him here but I'm not sure
I've got the money if you've got the time
You said it feels good
I said, "I'll give a try."

Then my mind went dark
We both forgot where your car was parked
Let's just take the train
I'll meet up with the band in the morning

Bad actors with bad habits
Some sad singers they just play tragic
And the phone's ringing and the van's leaving
Let's just keep touching; let's just keep... keep singing...

I want a lover I don't have to love
I want a boy who's so drunk he doesn't talk
Where's the kid with the chemicals?
I got a hunger and I can't seem to get full
I need some meaning I can memorise
The kind I have always seems to slip my mind

But you, but you...

You write such pretty words
But life's no storybook
Love's an excuse to get hurt
And to hurt.
Do you like to hurt?
I do, I do

Then hurt me...

I went to a concert on Tuesday

And ended up in a hot tub.

It's kinda funny how life ends up. One moment you are you on your way to a rockin' concert in Boulder and the next moment you are sitting in a warm pool while snow is falling on your hair.

Tuesday five of us planned on going to Boulder to see Mat Kearney and Griffen House play at the infamous Fox Theater. However, the weather deemed that we would not make it there. The first snow of the season came that day and dropped about a foot or a foot and a half of white goodness around our fair city. On the interstate we went from Woodman to Baptist road, a ride which would take about 10-15 minutes on a normal day, took 45 minutes.

I think all the cars in Colorado Springs that didn't have 4 wheel drive decided that day to start cruising and joy riding the streets. Because about 50% of the cars I saw that night were in the ditch.

Anyways, one of my friend's parents happened to live up north and had a hot tub. We ended up hot-tubing for the rest of the night under the stars and the snow.

What a nice diversion

I had a dream....

I had a dream last night that I was riding 50 cc motorcycles with my friend Jev. For some reason we had carts beind our motorcyles full of cardboard and we were racing eachother. I don't know who won because I woke up before the race was finished. I know, random dream.

In real life...
On Friday I went to the liquor store to buy some drinks. And there was this chick that was on crack. It was somewhat sad and pitiful. She was itching her arms, talking a mile a minute and pretty much stumbling or falling into anything in her path. It so easy to judge, but it's probably better to realize given the circumstances I would probably be the one on crack.

Sunshine through the rain...

I often don't tell others how I'm truely feeling or what I really think. Maybe it's because if people know more about me and can see all of me they won't like me. So, I decided that while this blog won't completely expose the deepest depths of my soul, it should somewhat convey my thoughts and feelings toward things.


Some people are the sunshine in our lives. They are the people that when caller id pops up on the phone, instead of sighing and thinking "I really don't want to talk to them, but I should", we silently celebrate and can't wait to hear their voice. When you leave their presence or finish a conversation with them, you leave with a greater sense that life is indeed good.

Their sunshine spills out through their hugs, coffee times, trips to McDonalds, random dance parties, walks around the loop, spontaneous trips to the local movie theater, late night rain runs and sometimes club-club. =)

Let's be honest, sometimes life sucks. It doesn't always go the way we thought or planned it to go. Everyone one goes through these times...

I hope I can be the sunshine in other's lives when they are going through the rain.
