Well the sad day has come. only no one's sad, and its really unimportant. The fact is, i'm done with blurty...seeing as almost no one reads it or whateva. So if you still want to read about my life, i'm over in livejournal now.



It's been fun (haha who knew you could be sentimental leaving an online journal??)

So the last few days have been pretty cool, and since i'm at a real computer, i'ma gonna acctually update this thing!

So Friday night, Steph Paylor and I went to the coffee shop in town to be CIP's (Christians in Public) so we got dinner and read our bibles and talked and listned to some guy playing guitar sing about being really drunk in west virginia. Sooo then we drove out to the restaraunt where jes works and we helped her wrap silverware for a while. then i went home and stayed up late talking to missy online because she is just that cool.

so then saturday, i slept till 9, slobbed around on the couch till 10:30, then pretened to clean my room for a while and then i slobbed some more until aunt karen came to pick me up at 1 to go with her and grandma to get gus' picture taken at petsmart. While ak took grandma back to mcconnellsburg, i was just chillin with gus here in mercersburg and kenny called and said that alanna had just called the house in mcconnellsburg and she was in hagerstown. Ken said she went to petsmart looking for me, so i got her cell phone number and called her and we decided that we would meet for dinner the next day when she came to mercersburg to pick up her brother who was at custers house. Soooo i spent the rest of the night watching Charlies Angels Full Throttle and a Reno 911 marathon.

so today, i had chruch bright and early where I did the call to worship, the call to confession, the assurance of pardon, and sang the anthem and the offeratory. or however its spelled. and then i hung out at the house and cried to my parents about my job and then i went to dad's shop and helped him put together his new bandsaw and then i came back over to mercersburg. I met alanna and her mom at school and we wandered around and looked at the new fountain and the crazy mushrooms growing on the quad until connor arrived. Connor, dave and his friend cory all decided to go explore campus some, so the rest of us went down to mckinstry's to see if it was open, and of course it wasnt. So eventually alanna, connor, their mom, and i all went to milky way where we hung out and heard old ladies say crazy things.

All in all, it wasn't a bad weekend.

[ music | Get Down- Audio Adreneline ]

Instructions: On your current playlist, hit shuffle and pick the first twenty songs on the list (no matter how cheesy or embarrassing), and write down your favorite line of the song. Try to avoid putting the song title in the line. Then, have your friends comment and see if they know the songs.

1. sold out men from across the way/ he thought he heard what he heard you say/ hey now man your watch it shines/ for the bid of a moment yeilds 40 times

2. Shell smashed, juices flowing /Wings twitch, legs are going /Don't get sentimental /It always ends up drivel

3.I used to sit and watch the pouring rain /I used to wish to be back home again /I hadn’t the strength then /I hadn’t the chance to reveal it / But it’s all in your hands

4. You came from heaven to earth/ to shw the way/ from the earth to the cross/ my debt to pay/ from the cross to the grave/ from the grave to the sky

5. Rock on, ancient woman / Follow those who pale / In your shadow /Rulers make bad lovers / You better put your kingdom up for sale

6. I meant you're outta line /With your friends and all your jokes /Moving out tonight / Making phones that hot to hold

7. 'Cause I came here with a load /And it feels so much lighter since I met you / /Honey you should know,
That I could never go on / Without you

8.Suck, suck your teenage thumb /Toilet trained and dumb /When the power runs out /We'll just hum

9. Fell out of the sky /Cease it to be /Without a reply /Gravity fails me /And when I awoke /I knew what was real

10. The movie wasn't so hot, it didn't have much of a plot /We fell asleep, our goose is cooked, our reputation is shot

11. It's the same old theme since nineteen-sixteen. /In your head, in your head they're still fighting, /With their tanks and their bombs, /And their bombs and their guns. /In your head, in your head, they are dying...

12. It's a long silent peace /It'a a weakness in your knees /It's a perfect place to go for everlasting love

13. peace of conscience, peace with God /we obtain through Jesus’ blood /Jesus’ blood speaks solid rest /we believe, and we are blest

14. Yes I'm blue, but from holding my breath /Like I have from the start /I'm the villain and I should confess /I liked you better before

15. It's always best when the light is off /I am the pick in the ice /Do not cry out or hit the alarm /You know we're friends till we die

16. This is the story of how we begin to remembr/ this is the powerful pulsing of love in the viens/ after the dream of falling and calling you name out/ these are the roots of rhythm and the roots of rythm remain

17.Your love is amazng/ steady and unchanging/ your love is a mountain/ firm beneath my feet/ your love is a mystery/ how you gently lift me/ when i am surrounded/ your carries me

18. For you, there'll be no more crying, /For you, the sun will be shining, /And I feel that when I'm with you, It's alright, I know it's right

19. Over dreams, I have picked out a perfect come true /Though you never knew it was of you I've been dreaming

20. Each time it comes it eats me alive /I try to behave but it eats me alive /So I declare a holiday /Fall asleep, drift away

this summer is blah. i wanna go back to school....

workcamp was cool. beth dugan came along, so that was way cool. but now i just work for the rest o the summer. blah

oh and linsey came by tonght. hooay!

i couldn't resists stealing this from nicole! [23 Jun 2004|07:37pm]
one segment of a much longer quiz
164. Lisa: that makes me think of someone from fulton county with big hair and leathery skin who smokes all the time. i dont know a lisa like that, but i'm sure one exists
165. Jennifer: Well i would say Jenn, but her name wasn't jennifer, so I'm going to say the sister of one of the girls from my class in mcconnellsburg...i didn't know her that well
166. Lindsey: Well i know a lot of those. all i can think of is that there are so many spellings for lindsay (linsey, linsey, lindsey, linsay) that i can't decide. so here's a list! Linsey Sluk, Lindsey Wigley, Lindsay Lininger, Lindsay Rosetta-Harper, Lindsay Steinour, okay i'm sick of this game.
167. Megan: Whitehouse. She was this creepy girl in my 1st grade class. She had scary blonde hair that always looked like she hadn't brushed it
168. Brandon: taylor. The guy i sat next to in 8th grade when I took biology. His cousin is the guitarist for the band live. He was cool and his mom was a hair dresser. He had this weird arm muscle problem, but he got surgery. before the operation he couldn't bend his arms at the elbow very well so they were always up by his chest.
169. Melony: what an 80s name.
170. Angela: Hancock. Her birthday is the same as mine and she was our co-pastor with her husband trent. He went into the army after 9/11 because he was in ROTC and then when he came back, not long after they found out angela had leukemia. She's doing better and they're coming to visit the church soon!
171. Michelle: Full House baby.
172. Terry: This mean kid who lived on my street and used to throw walnuts at me. kenny came out to defend me and hit him in the head with a walnut and he threatened to call the cops. what a dummy
173. Claudia: Sadly, I think of the Babysitters club too.
174. Ryan: Uh...Caddrette? Or maybe Ramsey. He used to be in the McConnellsburg Track team when i was still there and he was a distance runner. He also worked at Rotz Meats. He was cool
175. Lauren: PAGE! Ew! Well sorta. I miss the Laurie i was friends with my freshman year....but i dont miss whiney mean sucky laurie.
176. Derek: Okay this is weird...Derek was Laurie's boyfriend when i was a 9th grader, before she started to date Drew. He was a jerk i hear, but i never met him.
177. Brad: A percussionist from McConnellsburg! He was terrible and he hated it! He played bass drum in marching band and it was fun!
178. Jason: The kid who was friends with Jenn and me...he was a jerk though...i think he's gay, but the point is that he's pretty two faced.
179. Kevin: Beth Dugans boyfriend...at least i think they're still dating...I have no clue.
180. Holy: That song Open the Eyes of my Heart...aka camp songs.
181. Jackie: Chan. Or Mellott...she's nice...auntkarens good friend
182. Christian: Camp
183. Carol: Grandma Peggy's old landlord
184. Joseph: I dont know any of those i dont think...
185. Betsy: ....wetsy? hahahah betsy willis!
186. Patrick: Conant? or just irish people. yay irish!
187. Penis: Liz Stockdale...hahahahahahahahahahhah

[ music | Subterranian Homesick Alien- Radiohead ]

I never update in the summer, and now i have all this catching up to do. how dumb.

okay to sum up the last 3 weeks:

SAT2s suck
Graduation was very nice
I cried some
Kenny's working night shift at Sheetz
I'm working for Harvey in Hagerstown. I wake up at 5:30 and work until 3:30 and then come home and crash at 9:30. I'm remodeling a house that smells like dog pee and is a million degrees inside. It sucks. and i spend all day reliving the bad moments of my life because i have nothing better to think about. And then i get jealous of the ligonier people and then i get sad. but whatever, the price is right, at 7$ an hour
I'm helping dan with the bi-weekly youth program for our church by being a student leader and i'm playing bass in the praise band
i'm singing in church on august 1st
i'm going to workcamp
i turn 17 in 3 days
ken gave my my birthday present: these amazing "sin forgiving'' toweletts that "wash away sins" haha its in hokey packaging so it rocks and he gave me Ok Computer by Radiohead. Radiohead is amazing.

okay i'm very exhausted, but after this week i'm off for 2 whole weeks! Harv is going on vacation and I'm going to take the time off and go visit some colleges (i go to grove city on monday) and maybe i'll even go do the roadtrip thing with alanna like we were talking about. oh yeah, alanna sent me a letter and it was happy! I love letters. Everyone should send me letters!

okaaaah i sound like a dummy. i'se a dummy

okay bye

You're an Etch-a-Sketch!! You're the creative,
artsy type who doesn't need to actually utilize
a single muscle group in order to have fun.
Doesn't matter though, you're still cool.

[ music | loop in my head ]

it's been a long day and a long night and i feel sick to my stomach, and i yelled at people and now i feel like a big loser. i'm going to bed with radiohead playing in my ears on a continuous loop of "high and dry" and fake plastic trees.

shut up nostagia. nobody likes you.

i want to lose it with you

Two jumps in a week
I bet you think that's pretty clever don't you boy?
Flying on your motorcycle,
Watching all the ground beneath you drop
You'd kill yourself for recognition,
Kill yourself to never ever stop
You broke another mirror,
You're turning into something you are not

Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry

Drying up in conversation,
You will be the one who cannot talk
All your insides fall to pieces,
You just sit there wishing you could still make love
They're the ones who'll hate you
When you think you've got the world all sussed out
They're the ones who'll spit at you,
You will be the one screaming out

Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry

It's the best thing that you ever had,
The best thing that you ever, ever had
It's the best thing that you ever had,
The best thing you ever had has gone away

and one more thing to read because its exactly how i feel in a few situations in my life right now:

why am I walking barefoot
upon this road with no one around
I close my eyes to this decision
the night's like coffee to my tongue
like waking up without a sound
I map the words out
maybe you will say them

would you help me rise up
touch my face and watch me try to breathe again
would you let me do this
burn down the final wall

overcome me baby
overcome me baby
overcome me baby
overcome me yeah
all I'm asking is to be alive for once

always I am mistaken
I look for love I find a stone
of all the seasons winter befriends me
I come to you in friendship
and hold my breath against the snow
what are you thinking as I gaze into you

forgive me the confusion
forgive me as I realize my thoughts betrayed
you are the answer
cry and smile the same

i'm such a closet sap.

i'm awake
you're still sleeping
the sun will rise like yesterday
everything that we are now
is everything
we can't let go of
or it's gone for ever
far away
i hope tommorrow is like today

don't you go away tommorrow
i don't think i could handle that
you're probably dreaming
that you're flying on
then you start to fall
but then you rise
and shine forever
don't go away
i hope tommorrow is like today

- guster

isn't that beautiful? you have to hear them sing it...it's just so amazing. i'm in love with this band. they sing things that are definitions to my emotions. i love it so much.
