and another

This is for You
If I had one last sentence
To say in my life,
I would say it to you.
The ropes of daily life
Just bind me from saying it.
I don’t even know how you feel,
But I do know one thing:
That this, my last sentence,
This is for you.

oh, why not?

Here’s another… just cause I’m bored. No title this time.

Never thought I’d be here,
Standing with you in my reach.
I have been given a second chance
And so much reason for hope.
This just proves we’re here,
And it’s supposed to be that way.
I’m crying on the inside,
But not because I’m distraught…
Only cause I’m so damn glad to have you now.

i’ve been inspired

August 23, 2006 at 4:21 pm (Uncategorized)

So I saw some people’s writings and poems and what-not… so I figured what the hell… I’ll post something I wrote too.

I wrote this back in March, when I thought there was no hope. Hope for what, you ask? Well, I’m sure you’ll be able tah figure it out.

Silence
I know it’s clear the way I feel
I ask, hoping the truth won’t hurt,
Can’t you see it?, don’t you feel it?
I want you to know I like you
But I won’t say a word about it
Not until I know you like me too

So yeah, kind of a crappy example of my writing… but it’s the one I wanted to be out there most.

and i’m wrong again

August 23, 2006 at 2:57 pm (Uncategorized)

i just realized that.. well, I’m not sure why anyone likes me anymore. What good do they see in me? Cuz she’s right. I’m damn selfish. And I’ve tried to fix it. But i always end up hurting someone, and for what? my chance at happiness. MY chance… not theirs.

And I just realized that I’m a Bailey in hiding. Well, no. Sarah realized that. But it made me see the truth. So I don’t blame you guys if you all secretly hate me. I’m prolly like the girl that seems nice, but then you got to know me, and you pretty much hate me, or think I’m stupid, or that I’m a bitch. whatever. You get the point.

two days? already??

August 21, 2006 at 7:12 am (School)

School starts in two days. So in exactly 48 hours I will probably be waiting for the bus or something like that. Kinda scary, but exciting at the same time. I wanna go back and see everyone and all, but this summer really has been great, and I’ll be sad to see it end. But I guess every great story has to end somewhere.

completion

August 19, 2006 at 12:27 pm (Love)

Maybe it’s intuition
But some things you just don’t question
Like in your eyes
I see my future in an instant
And there it goes
I think I’ve found my best friend
I know that it might sound more than a little crazy
But I believe

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

There’s just no rhyme or reason
Only this sense of completion
And in your eyes
I see the missing pieces
I’m searching for
I think I’ve found my way home

I know that it might sound more than a little crazy
But I believe

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

A thousand angels dance around you
I am complete now that I’ve found you

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

i was warm last night <3

August 12, 2006 at 6:26 pm (Uncategorized)

I love life. no, really. I do, and I don’t know if I could love it more than I do at this moment.

Work today was pretty good. Got to train the new girl Sabrina again. Trained her last night with Corey 😀 I definitely think she is gonna work out. The girl didn’t stop cleaning.

Turns out I’m working for Jared tamarah morning from 9 till 3. Doesn’t bother me though. Just means more money.

I’m kinda scatter-brained today. That’s okay though. I figured I would be after last night. It’s not a bad thing. I just can’t get the greatness outta my head.

*sigh* I’m kinda tired. Prolly will take a nap. Oh, but afore I go…. my dad basically gave me his cell phone. Sooooo —-> if ya wanna call me sometime, call me on the weekends or after nine at… well, just ask for the number if ya want it but don’t have it already.

Love you all!!! <3333

Full moon, Full circle

August 8, 2006 at 3:30 pm (Music)

***most of this blog is Sarah’s work. I pretty much went back and edited/added stuff. I hope Sarita doesn’t mind***

Okay, so yesterday me and Sarah and her dad went to Chicago to see Wolf Parade at the Metro…so we got there at around three and were driving around the city for a while when her dad took us by the Metro to see the place, and whatdoyaknow, there was a band outside unloading stuff from a U-haul…and Sarah and I were both looking at them like uh, could it be them? but neither of us wanted to say anything in case it wasn’t, but then we did and her dad did a U-turn and parked like right by their van. We were begging him not to get out of the car to just to drive away but then he did and we followed and I seriously didn’t breathe for like 45 seconds and Sarah said she couldn’t feel herself anymore. But her dad totally just walked up to one of the guys and started a flipping conversation. It was crazy insane!!

So Sarah and I are standing kind of off to one side staring and not able to move and I wish one of us would have asked for a picture, but there’s no room for regret here. I mean we were seriously like two feet away from the guy!! And her dad was just talking to the guy…and he’s reeeeeeally hot, by the way. And then we kind of went into the place even though we prolly weren’t supposed to be in there and a guy walks up and asks if we’re with a band and Sarah’s dad just starts chatting with this guy. So this guy’s cool but he said we had to get out for insurance reasons and so we left and went by the store to see if they had any t-shirts or anything out yet and they said they wouldn’t have anything until doors at six. So we left and drove around to a more shop-filled area of the place and her dad took us by this little bar called Sheffield’s, where he ran into John and Joan Cusack when they used to hang out after Cubs games.

So then we went into this little store that had all kinds of movie posters and I found a really cute Schoolhouse Rock pin. It had a picture of the little guy from “Just a Bill” on it. So I totally got it, cuz I just couldn’t pass it up. I was considering buying an Ellen Degeneres pin and giving it to BJEB, but I decided that would be mean. Then we walked around to a couple o’ other stores and they have the CUTEST clothing in Chicago and Sarah and I are not ever going to shop in this town again once one of us has a license…we’re going to Chicago. Then we went into a used bookstore and lemme tell ya, that place was so packed with any kind of book you could imagine! it was kinda like heaven in there with the book smell… *ahem*

OH! Forgot the Bible guy. So, when we walked out of one of the stores we passed a guy who was walking around in a pink shirt, straw sun hat with a little thingy he was pulling behind him, and the dude was stopping people and handing out BIBLES. Sarah’s dad was joking and he’s all like “Let’s go over there and talk to him, make sure he sees your necklaces.” So we were talking about messing with him if he tried to stop us but he was stalking other people. Then we saw him again later and there was some dude who had him sitting there listening about how this guy was related to Gandhi and Einstein…who are also related to each other. Bible guy’s like “Oh really? I didn’t know that.” It was funny. Then we ate at this awesome little place with like a fifties theme but any kind o’ food you could ever imagine. Sarah and I both had pizza.

So then we decided to head back over to the Metro and her dad was telling Sarah there was no way they’d let us take pictures and she was like you don’t know that. So he decided to go ask one o’ the security guys and it turns out that yes, cameras were allowed. So we were waiting in line outside the place and Sarah’s dad was trying to park in the A.D.D.-est fashion ever and then he goes into this place across the street and gets ice cream and Sarah and I were like WE WANT ONE! so he got us some and took a picture of us eating it by the Wolf Parade’s trailer.

And then we went inside and Sarah and I were sitting on the floor but then when people stood up we couldn’t see anything so we went up to the balcony with her dad where there was the best view. So when the first band came out, we were trying to decide if it was Frog Eyes or Holy Fuck, the two bands who came out before Wolf Parade. We figured it was Holy Fuck, because we’d heard some Frog Eyes online and it sounded nothing like them. But, uh, at the end of their set, they announced Holy Fuck was up next. Obviously they’re not the best live performance, but their drummer’s awesome and they have some cool keyboard stuff. So Holy Fuck came out and they were awesome. I would totally go see them again, especially if Hadji (the one we talked to) is gonna be helping them anytime soon. They mentioned they were from Canada so they’re prolly friends with Wolf Parade. But after those two bands were done, people started streaming into the club. Loads of people showed up for Wolf Parade. So then Wolf Parade came out.

Oh.

My.

God.

You don’t even know. You just don’t. It was UNBELIEVABLE. Like, it was THEM…and it was so cool cuz they played a coupla new songs (their new album better come out soon) and a lot of stuff from Apologies to the Queen Mary, and it was great cuz their last two songs before going out were I’ll Believe in Anything and This Heart’s on Fire, and you know those were the two faves cuz you could hear every single person in there screaming the lyrics. And then they were setting up to play my fave song and they were just messing around with the music and things and someone played a coupla…well, whatever, we could tell what they were going to play and people started cheering and one of the guys comes to the microphone and is all like “How do you even know what that is? Grounds for Divorce, right?” and we all start cheering again. So then they left and we were cheering and we stood up and we just stood there clapping and screaming for what Dad said was at least three minutes, maybe five. So they come back out and they’re all like “That’s really nice”. So they played three more songs and they were supposed to be done by ten, legally forced to be done by ten cuz it was an all ages thing, but they ran over by like twelve minutes. So…they played Disco Sheets and one other one I can’t remember and some dude by us up in the balcony yelled “Dinner Bells” and they played that and that’s a really long song, like seven minutes. Oh, and did I mention that Wolf Parade was the only one of the bands who got a coolness light show? Hehe.

Sarah’s dad had been down earlier in the Metro Store to see if they had the stuff they said they would when the doors opened but they didn’t and it was stupid and then when we were going out we saw that there were loads of people in there getting stuff so we went in and got these two adorable matching shirts and posters from the tour. How great is that?

So then we got back in the car and Sarah called Rob and we had like kind of a three way convo. But most of the time I was admiring the moon and loving how everything had come full circle. It was like I knew I was meant to be at that show at that moment and everything in my life was perfectly aligned. And frankly, that feeling still has not worn off. Then Sarah and I both fell asleep for most of the ride back. Then we got to her house, got into our pajamas, and watched When Harry Met Sally and ate cereal. Then we went to bed.

So yeah. Best Day Ever. Like, EVER! Even beats out last Monday. Beats all of last week put together. Sarah most definitely agrees.

Mhmm… greatest night of my young life. <3<3<3

GOIN’ TO A CONCERT TAMARAH!!! WOOOO-WOOT!!! All I can say is… E-HEE!!

Yes, I am very excited. Specially since it will be my first concert. And I’m going with Sarita AND I got a really cute outfit to wear. Yup… so much excitement, but I’m sure you got that by now.

Work was pretty boring today. We had like twenty customers, as opposed to our usual Sunday-after-church rush that we usually have on Sunday mornings. I worked with Mike which was cool, cuz he knows what he’s doing. Yup.

Anyway, I think I’m gonna go look for applications online. Most likely for Walgreens and ACE. Cuz honestly, I pretty much hate the new management. Talk to you all later… eventually.
