The Art of Moving On [13 Jan 2005|04:46pm]
[ mood | Frustrated ]

All I want is just a little more time, a little more, just a little more time. All I want is some time, a little more time, a little more time...to make up my mind

Holding your feelings inside isn't the best thing. And when someone close to me shuts down to the point they exclude me from their life that's when I need to get myself to move on. I thought talking to him would help but it only made things worse and the way it makes me feel is not good for me. I'm sad a lot and depressed and it takes a lot to get me in a somewhat happy mood. I need help and advice on the best way to move on.

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG [12 Jan 2005|06:56pm]
[ mood | Excited ]

I just read this and I'm shaking with excitement...

Ten things you need to know about the new Rachel Stevens single
Story filed by Popjustice


1
The intro sounds like Fischerspooner's 'Emerge'. Given that 'Emerge' was three years ahead of its time in July 2002, and 'Negotiate With Love' is out in March 2005, Rachel is officially ahead of her time, albeit only by four months. But four months is still 1.33 seasons. That's, like, all of the summer and a bit of autumn. How awesome is that?

2
Rachel counts herself into the first verse with an austere "2, 3...", and also asks for the backing track to be turned up (with a polite "please") in the second verse. How very postmodern!

3
Postmodern or not, the backing track remains at exactly the same volume. Nobody, it would appear, likes a book-reading clever-clogs.

4
There's LOADS of surf guitar. Including one specacular segment at the end of the middle eight which is, let's be honest here, straight out of 'Sound Of The Underground'.

5
Lyrically the song's a classic "Bugger this, I'm off" end-of-relationship saga, featuring as it does a Rachel who's "thinking back in time, starting to realise I could have done much better than you". Well get her, etc etc.

6
The final lines of the verse - "Now you think you're in the clear. Well let me tell you, dear - soon you'll realise your mistake" - take us to an arms-aloft chorus with Rachel doing her best Debbie Harry impression and chanting "The case is closed, I don't negotiate with love / You made your choice I won't negotiate with love".

7
And then there's a really high-pitched portion that sounds like the "You pick us up to knock us down..." bit from North & South's 'Tarantino's New Star'.

8
If you're thinking 'This song sounds quite brilliant indeed', you'd be right. So hats off to whoever wrote and produced it. They're from Sweden apparently. We were told their names but we've forgotten them. Basically, once we find out we'll replace this bit with something at least bordering on being authoritative, and we'll pretend none of this ever happened.

9
The single's out in March, with another single to follow and then an album, but 'Negotiate With Love' is already Number One in the comedy Popjustice Chart Of Truth.

10
Most importantly, prepare to suspend your disbelief: there's more than one good song on Rachel's new album. In fact some of the songs are even better than 'Negotiate With Love' and could turn Rachel into a one-woman Girls Aloud. (Stop groaning at the back - now we'll have two acts to go overboard on, conjuring at least an illusion of variety.) Seriously. Some of you lot are going to just shit yourselves when you hear this stuff.

Rachel Stevens is apparently getting married. This is news from November...how could I have let that just slip from my memory?! Anyways...I guess that's cool. All the pop stars are getting married...I feel old.

Girls Aloud Are My Life [31 Dec 2004|08:47am]
[ mood | Indescribable ]

Same old routine
It's just a different day
Still I don't know what's going on
With you
The smell of you, still lingers on my skin
But you are nowhere to be seen
And boy

I've had about enough
Even though it's tough
I'm gonna lay it on the line
And if I'm asking you boy
Open up and let me know

Is it love, hate?
What's it gonna be?
Baby make, break
Tell me what you see
Is it you, me?
Are we gonna make it through?
Always up, down
Running me around
When I give, take
You don't reciprocate
Is it love, hate?
Tell me what it's gonna be

No one deserves
What you have put me through
Wont tolerate a life this way with you
Worth so much more
That a bad excuse to leave
You take a piece of me
You do

I've had about enough
Even though it's tough
I'm gonna lay it on the line
And if I'm asking you boy
Open up and let me know

Is it love, hate?
What's it gonna be?
Baby make, break
Tell me what you see
Is it you, me?
Are we gonna make it through?
Always up, down
Running me around
When I give, take
You don't reciprocate
Is it love, hate?
Tell me what it's gonna be

Is it love, hate?
What's it gonna be?
Baby make, break
Tell me what you see
Is it you, me?
Are we gonna make it through?
Always up, down
Running me around
When I give, take
You don't reciprocate
Is it love, hate?
Tell me what it's gonna be

Oh, oh
Is it love, hate?
What's it gonna be?
Baby make, break
Tell me what you see
Is it you, me?
Are we gonna make it through?
Always up, down
Running me around
When I give, take
You don't reciprocate
Is it love, hate?
Tell me what it's gonna be

Sing it girls. Can you ladies please be the soundtrack of my life? Thanks.

On the 12 Days of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me [20 Dec 2004|03:29pm]
[ mood | Excited ]

Well, it's really dead here on campus. I'm about to head to Des Moines and I'm actually excited for once! Sean and Anna are coming with me and I couldn't be happier. It'll be a fantastic couple days they're with me. My brothers will be there (parents out of town) and they're really cool so they won't give a shit. I'm really glad it's not .8 degrees like it was yesterday. Let's hope it's nice in Iowa as well.

I think Jessica Simpson is the cutest girl alive. She's so clueless, spoiled, pretty, talented, whiny, and many other wonderful things. I also re-discovered her album In This Skin, which is fantastic. Her other albums are great too. Sweet Kisses is ok, maybe a handful of good songs. Irresistible is my favorite album of hers. All the songs are amazing. And the newest album is so different and fun that it caused my to realize how great she is. She's as cute as a button! Her laugh is adorable and I love how on Newlyweds every other sentence she says she's complaining: "I have to pee," "Ouch," "I'm such a bad wife," and my favorite, "You love my stinky ass." That's not her complaining, but I love it.


Awww!

Fuck [16 Dec 2004|01:58pm]
[ mood | Weird ]

My first final didn't go that well. The first 25 questions were ok because they were questions from lecture, but the other 25 were from Recitation. I didn't study at all for that part because I didn't give a fuck. I guess I deserve what I got. Next semester will be better though. I'll be such a good student *nervous laugh*

[ mood | Cheerful ]

Rachel is the shit, so why not make her the theme of both my xanga and livejournal!? I was feeling pretty down and confused the past few days but Ifeel so much better. Everything isn't straightened out yet because nothing's been confronted or discussed but there's a sense in the air it will be OK.

Breathe in, breathe out. This is a new day coming.

I did just that.

He Comes From a Foreign Place [09 Dec 2004|04:34am]
[ mood | Satisfied ]

He comes from a foreign place
An island far away
Intrigues me with every move
Til' I'm breathless, I'm helpless
Can't keep my cool
Steals my heart when he takes my hand
And we dance, to the rhythm of the band
I feel his finger tips, grip my hips
And I slip as we dip into a state of bliss

Mama used to warn me
To beware of those Latin lovers
She said I gave my heart too soon
And that's how I became your mother
I said ay mama, you seem to forget
I'm not in love yet
Sweet talk don't win me over
But I realized
Big brown eyes can hypnotize
When he says

I am full blood boricua
Read the tattoo on his arm
He tells me, mami I need ya
And my heartbeat pumps so strong
Getting lost in el ritmo
He whispers te quiero, te quiero
I begin to give in with no hesitation
Can't help my infatuation
It's pure infatuation

Skin the color of cinnamon
His eyes light up and I melt within
Feels so good it must be a sin
I can't stop what I started
I'm giving in
He brings life to my fantasies
Sparks a passion inside of me
Finds the words when I can not speak
In the silence, his heartbeat is music to me

Mama used to warn me
Not to rush love with another
She said I'm not trying to lecture
I just care about my daughter
Ay mama, you seem to forget
I never will let
A man control my emotions
But when he smiles
I feel like a little child
When he says

I am full blood boricua
Read the tattoo on his arm
He tells me, mami I need ya
And my heartbeat pumps so strong
Getting lost in el ritmo
He whispers te quiero, te quiero
I begin to give in with no hesitation
Can't help my infatuation
It's pure infatuation

Caught between my mama's words
And what I feel inside
I'm wanting to explore his world
But a part of me wants to hide
Should I risk it, can't resist it
This has caught me by surprise
Should I, let him take me to Puerto Rico
I can't hold back no more
Let's go tonight...

You adore me, never be lonely

I am full blood boricua
Read the tattoo on his arm
He tells me, mami I need ya
And my heartbeat pumps so strong
Getting lost in el ritmo
He whispers te quiero, te quiero
I begin to give in with no hesitation
Can't help my infatuation

I can't help, what I'm feeling
Infatuated
Infatuation


There's a boy that's on my mind. This past summer he was on my mind all the time and it just went away because I never saw him or talked to him and I felt hopeless in finding out the truth about him. But, now he's popped up again thanks to a lovely website (facebook much?). I'm much more open now and I want something to happen. I'm going to find out who he is and what he's all about. I'd do anything...

Girls Aloud Rocks My Toe Socks [02 Dec 2004|03:56am]
[ mood | Exhausted ]

About 75% of the music I listen to is music only released in the UK or it originated in Europe and made it's way overseas (only to flop, majorly...but that's because America has horrible taste in music). Rachel Stevens is one of the artists from the UK (and my favorite). So is Kylie Minogue (one of the artists to cross seas and flop). Another act from the UK that will soon come to the land of the free is Girls Aloud. Here's a visual:
Picture too big :(
Gorgeous, aren't they? Well, their first album Sound of the Undergroud is fantastic. "Sound of the Underground", "No Good Advice", and "Don't Want You Back" are my favorites. Now, their second album What Will The Neighbors Say? will be released overseas next week and it's the best pop album or album from a group I've heard...ever. Every song is unique and could be single material. My favorite on it is "Wake Me Up". It has a rock edge mixed with good old Girls Aloud sound which is kinda pop-electro. I just wanted to make an entry about them because I love them (my favorite group) and their music, lyrics, and voices are top notch. The music is sexual, cute, fun, smart, fun, and danceable...everything I need and want.

[ mood | Anxious ]

Yesterday was a fantastic day for me. I didn't do anything that most would consider that great but it actually makes a difference for me what I did. I finally got into the Fine and Performing Arts college yesterday by running about campus with papers and shit. It's such a relief to get that done. And then I cleaned up my very very messy room which took over an hour. So, it was really messy and I worked hard to get it clean!! Oooh...and Istudied for a test that I probably wouldn't have studied for. I was tired, but I still studied. And now I've woken up without going back to sleep and I got all dressed and stuff and studied more and now I'm going to go take that test and hopefully do ok on it. It's my last exam for the class (Philosophy and Current Issues) and that class doesn't have a final! Yayyy.

Why You Look So Sad? (recycled title) [30 Nov 2004|04:03am]

Well, it seems my life has turned onto a rough road that is familiar to me, unfortunately. It's taking me to a place I do not want to be. So, I just made a new background and icon to help me. That will go up later...now my bed is calling. Please Lord, help me.

Turkey turkey turkey! [23 Nov 2004|02:44am]
[ mood | Cheerful ]

I'm sooo happy it's break time! I'm going home later today to good 'ol Des Moines just until Friday then I'll be shakcing it up with Sean in Omaha for a night...until it's Black and White party time! I have no clue what I'm going to wear. But hopefully my mom will let me go get a new "winter coat" which is code for "new clothes". I don't know if she will because she said I can't go buy stuff everytime I come home...but I come home maybe once a month. And I have needs!! I'm poor! Hopefully the poorness with be cured soon because I applied to Express Men. But my application is retarded because I never know what to do and I've never had a job before. For "Expected Salary" I put "Anything". Because I have no clue what to put! I don't know what would be too low or too high and I don't want to put $4.00 and then that's my starting salary because that's a shitty wage. So, by putting "anything" the opportunities are endless for a wage. I really really really want a job and that's a job I would really really really enjoy, I think. Anyway...I think I'll go to bed. There's really nothing I can do when my roommate goes to bed.
