I woke up from a nap and was bugged by everyone and everything:
Friend didn't call me today, plans are looking weak for tomorrow, my coming out plan is dying, I hate having a reading schedule for English. and my crush's "who I'd like to meet" on myspace ["a boy who won't mind late night conversations and such"] Yeah whatever.
Oh, and fuck that german for being so attractive. [She reminds me of Emily Haines (lead singer of Metric/solo artist. If you know who she is, you rule) who I am absolutely in love with.] Even the straight girls agree she's the prettiest foreign exchange student and can't get over how gorgeous she is.
I'm mellowing now.
Visiting Nostalgia Lane by watching videos that came out when I was in middle school IE "Maps" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, "Ride" by the Vines, and "Reptilia" by the Strokes. "Maps" has especially stuck because it reminds me of my 8th grade DC trip with the school. One morning we were getting ready in the hotel and were watching early-morning videos on MTV and "Maps" was one of them and we had this whole discussion on what it was actually about. They also all disliked the song except me. The rest of the trip I sang it in my head constantly.
It's funny how music can stick with memories like that; how they can remind you of an exact moment that was seemingly meaningless, but stuck with you anyway. It can initiate memory of one moment or one trip, one setting where you first heard the song, or something you saw that remained embedded with the song for no apparent reason.
My crush said that freshman year [before we were friends] she was in her front yard listening to a song by Eisley and I rode by on my bike with a friend and so everytime she listened to that song she would be reminded of "the girl from her spanish class" that rode by on her bike. And now we're best friends. Wierd, right?
I love music
