I vaguely remember when Kurt died. I remember scarcely better when Layne died. I remember much better when Scott died. I'll even throw in Prince and Michael (different genre, of course). Somehow, this is the first one that really bummed me out on a gut level. As I listened to a tribute to him on Spotify I listened to his lyrics much more closely and realized that's where my hurt was coming from. His own.


That we've lost four of the five vocalists that changed the course of music in the 90s is unbelievable. The voices of our generation. That so much talent from our youth is gone, leaves quite an unwanted hole.


And then I come to find out that it was, in fact, Kim Thayil (as well as Ben Shepard), whom I saw at a local Minneapolis show my crew and I were filming on Friday night. Emotional night. The band couldn’t keep it together to cover Black Hole Sun. And it’s going to be difficult to listen to “Burden in My Hand” for quite a long time...

I walked down to the abandoned house, and sat on the concrete out front.
I smoked until my lungs hurt and stared at the cars passing by.
I debated jumping in front of one that was going well above the speed limit,
But decided not to because I was scared it would hurt.
A car pulled over and a woman inside asked me if I was all right,
I’m on break—I’m okay.
I texted my pseudo-boyfriend to tell him about the day;
He thought that I was joking.
He thinks that I’m okay.

I “need” some new work clothes and I got lucky and got a 40% off coupon today for Kohl’s, so I loaded my cart up with way too many clothes and went to check out. 


Got an email that my order couldn’t be processed (my credit card address was saved in my account from my last address, so it was wrong) and if that isn’t a sign then I don’t know what is. 


I even thought that to myself – that it was a sign – but tried to buy everything anyways, but they only let you use the code once so it wasn’t active anymore. I know I could call them and get a new code or purchase through their 1-800 number, but I know how to take a sign! 


I’m pretty stressed about money – we are trying to buy a house within the next year, we’re obviously having a wedding, and we want to get caught up on some of the debt we have accrued from moving. So even though I really do legitimately need a few new work clothes, I’m not buying any.

is this thing on?

WOW! Hi all! I’ve been neglecting this a lot, which might explain why my mood swings have been so frequent and violent. I forget that this is a good outlet for me to get my feelings out and then I never utilize it. Things have been okay. My sister was just home for two weeks and left this morning at like 5am. I’m sad she’s leaving and feel like I didn’t even get to spend a lot of time with her, but honestly we actually did a bunch together and got to see a lot of people, which was awesome and refreshing. I’m happy to get back to my normal schedule and routine, though! Hopefully I won’t be so tired all the time once I get back into the swing of it. My dog is doing well for now, she’s comfortable & happy :] so that’s awesome. I often forget that she’s sick. I’ve been trying to keep it out of my mind just so I don’t get overwhelmed by it. 


Work has been a little hectic! Another coworker has been let go, which is crazy to me. My car has been giving me issues. My check engine light came on and the issues that caused it cost $700 to fix and then, two weeks later something else happened so that ended up costing $1100 to fix. Luckily, my parents helped me because I couldn’t afford it and I feel like a dick and a burden like always. NOW, my car is delaying to start, so I’m looking at options for a new car. We’ll see. I’ll probably have to get a second job over the summer so I can get more money, hopefully. I am getting overtime at work, but I don’t know. I need to redo my resume and start applying to district jobs. I think having the year of experience will really help and will give me a better shot at getting one this year. We’ll see. If not then I need a big raise or I need a new job. If I can’t get a district job, then I might just try for an office job or something with my English degree...or I might go back to school. We’ll see what happens.


I’ve been feeling overwhelmed lately and existential. I don’t know, I can’t really explain it. I guess because I’m getting older. MERP. Oh well. Hope all’s well with everyone. Talk soon, xoxox.
