06:30pm 30/08/2008
  I made this list some time ago.


"ok, list the things you simply have to do in your lifetime."

And this is how I replied. (In no particular order)

1. Travel
a. San Francisco
b. Seattle
c. Arizona
d. England
e. Greece
f. France
g. Canada
h. San Diego
i. wherever else I damn well feel like going.

2. Find the best people there are in this world and make them my friends [its an ongoing venture, but I feel like Im kinda doing ok at the moment]

3. Party, laugh, cry and sing with those friends

4. Go on tour with a band, or with my band

5. Listen to as many different kinds of music as possible [not there yet, trying]

6. Get more tattoos

7. Try every different kind of coffee (and maybe tea) created [work in progress]

8. Maybe open my own coffee house or venue. Or better yet, coffee house/venue

9. Never forget all of the good things [trying]

10. Help change the face of music.  [haha that ones a little pretentious]

I dont know what my list would be at this moment. But I'm thinking about it......

  Things to get excited about:
The new Mariah Carey. Shes back and better than ever! She is smart, talented and is in full support of the theory of relativity. The album is entitled E=MC2. Good for you Mariah.

Things to worry about:
I'm pretty sure I am going insane.

is it weird to miss people when theyre right in front of your face? I guess I finally know what its like to be the one to change and to see the 'world' go on without me, or... without the me I used to know. 
Can I take it back? Just for a little while? Ive been up for 30 hours now. I think its time for some sleep.

  It's not that easy being green
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow, or gold
Or something much more colorful like that

It's not easy being green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over
'Cause you're not standing out
Like flashy sparkles in the water
Or stars in the sky

But green's the color of spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like
And green can be big like a mountain
Or important like a river
Or tall like a tree

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why
But why wonder why wonder
I am green, and it'll do fine
It's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be

If I could bottle one persons voice and keep it forever and ever, it would be Dan Romers.





Good show tonite.
I really missed the Chance. Theres something so nostalgic about it. It is one beautiful theatre, but also home to many bands and many awesome shows. Being so close to people I didnt really want to. Sweaty and smelly, but it didnt matter much.
I should start packing.
I should really start shopping.

  "Faster dad! Youre going too slow. You have to keep up!" I watched a little girl walk the track with her father the other day. She was wearing those light up shoes that we all wanted back in elementary school. Lets not forget about the ones with the pumps. She looked like a weeble. No elegancy in her walk, always looked as though she was a step away from falling. Holding her dads hand certainally did not help her. Yet she always held on and she never fell. I passed by them and a few laps later, went home. I always wanted to find an open field one day and to just run like a little kid without a care in the world. Not a worry about falling, or about steping into a hole, or on a rock. No worries about where youre going. Tomorrow Im going to Poughkeepsie to see the Fire Flies. My last show before I head back to Purchase. This has certainally been the best summer I have ever had. Here's to a new year and many new memories. To the leaves who kiss the sun, and the air that gains a chill and to the days, who say goodnight just a little bit earlier.

Yay Purchase

  Nine days. That's scary but Im so relieved at the same time. I cant wait to be back at school. Yesterday was officially the best weather day in all of summer. There was just the slightest chill in the air but it was soooo sunny and warm and all the birds were out. I layed on the ground for hours and I couldnt shake the smile from my face. It was nice. Some really good shows coming up and I would love some company.

  There were sooooo many stars out tonite. More than I have seen in a very long time. It was nice just to look up and stare a bit and know they are there.

Imagine knowing someone since you were kids. Since kindergarden. To go through so much together. Your best friend who through bad hair cuts and hand me downs, break ups and first loves stuck with you and was never ashamed to call you their friend. It used to be something I treasured. Sometimes all good things come to an end and I just feel like we're grasping at straws to try and keep us connected when we know we're so far apart.

Another wonderful birthday. A formal dinner with people I did not even know from her life. I felt so out of place.

Just a few hours before I was having more fun than I ever thought Id have helping out friends and being around music. It was an experience I will never forget. Sometimes I wish I had other interests. Other then music I mean. Its not that I dont have other interests, but its more that I dont really have a strong desire to pursue them.

I cant wait to get back to classes and life outside of this plastic suburb. This year should be fun. A little more than 2 weeks and I'm back. My how the time does fly.

  Here's wishing you the bluest sky,
And hoping something better comes tomorrow.
Hoping all the verses rhyme,
And the very best of choruses to
Follow all the doubt and sadness.
I know that better things are on the way.

Here's hoping all the days ahead
Won't be as bitter as the ones behind you.
Be an optimist instead,
And somehow happiness will find you.
Forget what happened yesterday,
I know that better things are on the way.

It's really good to see you rocking out
And having fun,
Living like you just begun.
Accept your life and what it brings.
I hope tomorrow you'll find better things.
I know tomorrow you'll find better things.

Here's wishing you the bluest sky,
And hoping something better comes tomorrow.
Hoping all the verses rhyme,
And the very best of choruses to
Follow all the drudge and sadness.
I know that better things are on the way.

I know you've got a lot of good things happening up ahead.
The past is gone it's all been said.
So here's to what the future brings,
I know tomorrow you'll find better things.
I know tomorrow you'll find better things.

mood: gloomy
So devils day turned out to be a big letdown. I mean, I was hoping for the world to end or my place of work to burn down to a bitter pulp, or even some possesion. Something to take my mind off the sheer boredom I've been feeling or how much Ive been living in the past or how hard it is to wake up ini the morning. But no. No big apocalyptic day. Just your usual 9 hour work shift with me wishing I was somewhere else. These 3 girls came in dressed all in black, tons of eyeliner, big 'hate the world attitude' Made these special shirts that said 'Devils Day 6-6-06'. Real Rebels. They bought cake mix, confetti cake mix with colorful candles and pink frosting. I laughed on the inside.

I was reading the pennysaver today and found this ad.

Got kind of excited... I mean it was the kind of thing I wanted to do this summer, work outside, do something meaningful, get paid. But I'll never apply. I think I'm cursed to work in a crappy job and have shitty summers from now on. It's my own fault. I could get out of it if I wanted to, I just always have a problem moving on. Its awful really.

I have to work in 2 hours. That's going to suck. I do nothing meaningful and cater to rich snobby people who are only going to get richer and more obnoxious and lonely. Please don't ever be like them.

God, this rain isn't helping.

Happy May!   
12:49am 01/05/2006
  Its offically 49 minutes into the first of May. It's nice outside. I cant believe its May first though. Pretty damn crazy, I really hope the next three years dont go as fast as this first year has. Purchase has definately been an awesome time. Spent some time at home this weekend. My parents have this new routine of going out to breakfast every Sunday morning. I think its rather cheesy but they seem to enjoy it. The diner that they go to is one of those quaint town diners that kind of reminds me of the one in History of Violence. It was weird to go out to breakfast with them this morning. My step dad also has this thing for fishing, and everyone has to go fishing with him once a season. Its supposed to be some sort of bonding time. Im not really a fan of fishing, or boats, or bodies of water in Westchester County. My town has a weird smell to it when its rainy, or at dawn. Sometimes its nice, other times I wish it wasnt so quiet. I'm a bad influence on me, in a way I really dont want to have four months to myself. Lots of good concerts this week. May is a good concert month.

Happy May everyone!

oh, and Rilo Kiley is amazing

mood: theres no mood with Z
Havent updated in a while. Easter happened, that was fun. The priest said 'Prince of Darkness' and we sang 'Lord of the dance'. Hell yes is all I have to say. I saw Paramore for the first time, that was even more fun.
Theyre really great live, tons of energy and excitement. Plus theyre really just nice people and enjoy hanging out after their set. After that I had to go to a funneral for my great-uncle. I never actually met him but I was sad that I never knew him. I also realized my family is hard core italian. Not my immediate family so much, I mean... I could care less, if youre a good fun person then thats cool, but my families pretty big on it. Then I went home. I new I wasnt going to my monday morning class, but I figured Id at least make it in for my 2 afternoon ones. I drive all the way there only to discover that one of my afternoon classes were cancelled. Coulda had the entire week off and saved some gas. But its all good. It was cool to be at Purchase without having any sort of commitments for the day. I had many commitments today, it wasnt fun. Im really excited for the end of the year and scared at the same time. Im scared by how fast it is going and I know that I'll probably dig myself into a rut and wont want to do anything at all. I'll probably work alot because I cant say no and I'll be so tired on my days off that I'll just sleep and wont get to hang out with anyone. Im also sad that I wont get to see my friends as much. But I really need the rest this summer and I need to just go back to normal for a while. Whatever that is. There are alot of good concerts coming up in May that Im excited for. Mostly friends, but Im sure I'll find some others. Enough letters, time for some pixelated prettiness.

I cant believe theres only ab out 5 or 6 weeks of school left. Pretty crazy. When its all over, remind me to do a recap on the year. Things have been especially busy this week, tons of things that have to get done, classes, spring fever. I am just so ready for breakmode. Even though we only get 3 days off, it will still be nice. Tons of lounging.
I registered for classes today. Sophmore year ahh!!

Your current class schedule is:

MCO2310.20 -> MIDI COMPOSITION I Credits: 2.0
MCO3330.20 -> ADVANCED STUDIO PRODUCTION I Credits: 2.0
MCO4125.33 -> PRODUCTION MASTER CLASS Credits: 3.0
MTH2510.20 -> SURVEY OF MUSIC HISTORY I Credits: 2.0
MUS3770.10 -> STUDIO APPRENTICESHIP Credits: 2.0
HIS1500.21 -> UNDERSTANDING AMERICA Credits: 3.0
MCO2010.10 -> MODELS III Credits: 3.0


17 credits now. 19 with my internship. Crazyness. It will be nice to have some classes with my friends though. I dunno what Im going to do this summer. Possibly going to San Fran? If I do it will be tottally spur of the moment, but ive been dying to go and the premier show of a really cool band could tottally make that happen. I think alot of working. This isnt new, im sorry, youve heard this before, tons of the same old. I really want to read more though, so if anyone has some good books to recommend let me know. And I want to go bike riding and enjoy the outdoors and catch up on my music history, and just go visit people, go on roadtrips or take the train to some random place. I did it so many times in San Diego, just took the train or the bus to somewhere that looked cool and said stop. Ive been thinking more and more about it ever since I left. Being there and how amazing it was and how much of a different person I was. I wasnt afraid or cautious (although there were time when i probably should have been) I was so happy and content and it was good.
Its going to be weird to leave the suite when this semester is over. In the beginning of the year there were 6 girls (7 for a few weeks) who sort of got along but made it work and everything was ok. Now there are 8 girls and everyones secluded themselves and everyones at odds. But it will be sad to leave, and such a relief at the exact same time.

There was this movie trailer I saw on myspace. I completely fell in love with what this girl was saying. I think that when I got into the punk scene it was just changing so for a few months, or maybe a year, I had found happiness and pure energy and goodness. I wonder though, if Punk had stayed pretty much the same, and I kept growing up... would I still think it changed. Music changed and so did I, but I pose to you this quote from the trailer, take from it what you will:



our youth was gone. it simply wasnt there anymore. The scene became tangible, even in the act of calling it the scene. we gave a physical identity to something we used to just feel. Somewhere along the way it stopped being a reffuge to the misfits the awkward teenagers who didnt want to listen to what everyone else they knew was listening to and turned into something cool. The big underground. Some still put out there music only to be faced by an increasingly apathetic crowd looking for genuine emotion and instead finding empty lyrics screamed incoherently in place of the faced paced edgy melodies that used to reverberate through these long since shut down venues. Politics took a back seat to band merchandise, sincerity cowared before image, and in the end all that was left was our friendships. Bigger than the music, louder than a plane crash, stronger than your convictions. We, the Freaks, Nerds and Romantics.

start a band   
10:35pm 16/03/2006
 
mood: eh
So I realized... I don't know what my bands lyrics mean.
This is a sad day.
I know what they are, but I never really bothered to analyze them to really see what is going on in my singers head. So I'm trying to now. I usually write about things that I am passionate about and my band hasnt been coming up much. But the bass player and I have been talking and I think we have the same idea about the band. Alot of what the band stands for relys on the singer, the frontman or woman so I hope that all of our personalities come across through him. I think all will be well though.

God I cant believe break is over in a couple days.

Hope everyone has a good St. Pattys day
