OH! MY! GOD!
On Monday, I woke up after crashing at a friend's place (I'm really starting to resent needing to crash with people, seriously, I need an apartment - but I will post about that later), had some toast and left, but not without stopping to get hot chocolate.
My car does not have any cup holders. And traffic was awful leaving the city. The car in front of me at one point stopped abruptly. My beloved hot chocolate was between my legs, luckily the lid stayed firmly on, but some spilled onto the floor of my car anyway.
I was late leaving because of traffic, and I knew I was going to be late, or miss my ten a.m. class and I was starting to get tense. When the car stopped, I stopped in turn, the cup fell, and as I picked it up I screamed. At the top of my lungs out of frustration. When I looked up there was a handful of Govvies starring at me.
This is pretty much this week in a nutshell and today I almost completely cracked as I was leaving work, so I've taken tomorrow off. Thank God!
And because I've taken tomorrow off I've spent the last five hours writing and listening to Ida Maria and Florence and the Machine. Today (morning?) I want to be a singer. Or something. Because if I don't hurry up, I may very well end up becoming one of those kids who gets stuck in Richmond forever and wastes away at house shows. But, thankfully, I am at least motivated to get out of here. I need to stop talking so much, and maybe stop giving myself so much free time, if for no other reason so that I can do something with the potential I criticize other people for not using. This is my attempt at correcting some of my hypocrisy, and while I do it I'll wallow and listen to soul.
(You've all heard Ida Maria's, Oh My God on all those Gossip Girl commercials, and at Mousetrap last Saturday, but it's so perfect.)Find a cure find a cure for my life Put a price put a price on my soul Oh my god oh you think I´m in control Oh my god oh you think it´s all for fun Find a cure find a cure for her life Put a price put a price on her soul Oh my god oh you think I´m in control Oh my god oh you think it´s all for fun Find a cure find a cure for my life Put a price put a price on my soul Build a wall Build a fortress around my heart Oh my god oh you think I´m in control Oh my god oh you think it´s all for fun Is this fun for you?
