I can’t seem to find a thought that is just “normal.” I’m listening to Dashboard Confessional. It’s relaxing to say the least. I’ve had a lot of time to think lately. I’ve had a lot of time to do just about anything I want as I have not been able to attend school for the past week because we don’t have the money right now. And you know the part that really irks me is the fact that the Administrator of my school will not let me go to chapel. wow, what a witness. geeze, give me a break.

A ton is on my mind. Today I wrote a couple songs and put them on the computer. I used my new acoustic, it’s awesome. It’s a Tacoma DM9 for you guitar lovers. But enough about that.

I can’t think right now. I’m kind of, I don’t know, whatever. bye
Sorry so short.

Today has been one of those weird days. I couldn’t afford school, high school that is, so I wasn’t allowed to attend. I wasn’t sick, I didn’t have a dr.’s appointment, there was no death in the family, just plain old wasn’t allowed to go. That’s weird to me. Apparently we owe them like $3000 for last year, plus whatever we need for this year. It’s kind of crappy, cause I feel bad for my dad and stuff. He’s been working hard and really wants me to go there, especially finish my senior year there. But we just don’t have that kind of money and though the school has been gracious enough to allow me there up til’ now, it’s just coming down. Yup, that’s that.

But otherwise it’s been a good day. Mowed the lawn. Went by the school to drop something off. uh.. went over to my friend Jared’s to pick something up, but he wasn’t home so I left a note on the door and told him to page me. Now I am here. Just sitting like always, communicating to you people how dull and weird life can be. Bye

Yeah, it’s been wild. School was normal, but after school was rockin’. Pushfast (my band) had practice at my house and Zach, his girlfriend Alissa, and the rest of the gang came over and checked us out. It was like a mini show at my house.

But I am here now at 12:26 A.M. cause we just got back from seeing “The Fast and the Furious” at the dollar theater. It was actually the first time I had seen the movie, and I don’t really have an serious opinion about it. It wasn’t bad or good. Just kind of a movie. I dunno, whatever. I got a sweet “Dumb and Dumber” poster. It’s like an action shot from the movie. The part where they are riding on the little motor-scooter. Oh man, it’s the coolest. Well, I’m heading for bed.

Ok, today was going kinda slow from the start. I got up at 6:15AM and went to school, you know, the usual. Then I did my best to make it through the Bible video which was actually a rockin’ video, it’s just I was really tired. But most of the day was just plain ole’ tired. After school I came home and checked my email. I’ve been looking at this sweet Tacoma acoustic guitar and I got an email from a company in Florida that said they could give me an awesome price with a hard-case, no tax, no shipping; it was rad. But I figured I’d go see my friend Jimmy who works at the new guitar center here in town. Let’s just say JIMMY HOOKED ME UP! JIMMY YOU ARE THE MAN! It was so sweet! oh man, I love it. This is a lot happier journal then the 21st post. Geeze! It’s great. All I have to do now is get the money and go pick that crap up! peace.

what the crap is all that junk?

I’m pissed. No joke. This day has been rockin’ until’ I got like 60 billion pages from my sister wanting my truck so she can move back in to the house with me and my parents. It just pisses me off. She’s freakin’ 19, has like 2 jobs and she needs to move back in to my house and ruin my freakin’ life. Not to say that my life is that special, I’m just saying, it’s the principle of the matter. So anways, I”m going to a show tonight. Zach’s band’s playing. And well, to say the least, there is going to be a lot of people there and it’s going to rock.. but the thing about my sister pisses me off still. I should go take a pic of the freakin’ room and show everyone how much stuff she is bringing in to my life that makes me just want to get pissed off like I am right now.

I’m going to the show soon.
