Moving day!

Tris' Window is moving. Or, I am.

My journal and photos. It's been good, see you there!

Lady Mondegreen and Lady Flip-the-page

A person I know has a name, that if you say it fast, mondegreens the name of a Virgilian homosexual shepherd. The mondegreen works if the first and last name are said together fast, which almost everyone does. (This person in real life is straight, although a tad androgynous from the back.)

And a scarier coincidence: A word that means "nobody" or "no man", when written down and flipped backwards, spells out the name of the same person that was the focus of the whole "do-I-cross-the-line" episode.


Yes, I'm procrastinating.

Memoirs of a geisha

For anyone that knows me and has seen me in the past three months, you will know that I carried a purse with a picture of a geisha on it around. Today, I did not carry it. I recieved one comment "your other bag was nice, why did you switch?"

Was it because I was the geisha on that purse? For the past three months, I tried to be happy, shine out, act like everything was normal when I was really torn up inside over something that I will, probably, never forget but is actually really inconsequential in the grand scheme of things. I tried to be myself too hard, so I became someone else. (Remember my posts about lines in September? That's where it all started. I was hovering over that line for about a month, until I got kicked back in the middle of October, and then tried to find where I wanted to be on the safe side of the line.) I was Tris, acting the part of Tris.

Or was it because the bag never matched anything I wore?

That person who asked, and you, will never know anything more.

Psychic iPod tale

If it's raining and I have to walk somewhere, I must listen to REM's "Nightswimming." Another one of my weird quirks. Anyway, it was raining today and I had to walk home from school. I was thinking that I was going to stick it on Shuffle, listen to some school-grounds-safe song, (iPods are inspected by peers to make sure that they've got "good" music on it. Mine never passes the test.) and listen to Nightswimming later, so I pressed the button and started walking.

Nightswimming was the first song.

I'm only allowing myself the duration of a certain Verve song to write this, as it is the only free time I had and will have all day.

These days, it seems like I'm seeing only gray. Some days are lighter gray, some darker, but it's nonetheless gray. Monochrome. I;m being told to be perky and smile and sing about tired turtles on tuttle-tuttle trees at 7:30 in the morning, I'm told to smile up at the sky while twirling a flag at 6:00 at night. Same thing every day. Even the scedule at school never changes-it's the same route, same path I take every single day. It's the same voices in my head telling me that I need change.They told me that life would be a lot more interesting in high school, but it's just let me fall into a rut. Go to school, possibly rehearsal, come home, sit at desk, do homework. Dinner. Sleep. I think the same things, I've stopped writing Verra (for those of you who know who that is,) I do the same things every day.

In short, what I need is new experiences, change, color.Anyone got a free set of paints?

No line!

Enough said. Hope there isn't another one up ahead.
