Context [Apr. 27th, 2007|04:16 pm]

another from Impact;

    As the old saying goes, "sticks & stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me."  This saying is readily told to youngsters as they enter the school system in an effort to prevent hurt feelings, it shows kids that bullies comments don't matter, a good thing to be sure.  Any yet, it has also been widely claimed that the tongue is the strongest muscle of the body.
    With that i come to my conclusion as stated above: Context.  Words carry with them so much emotional weight, each person has a different understanding or connotation associated with a myriad of words and often we know not the gravity of what we say.  This as with my previous writing leads me to contemplate:

    In the safety of a smoky, sweaty and packed rock club, the word "fuck" can be uttered freely among patrons and is often wielded with great strength and imagination by performers.  Though, if spoken in a school setting, the room will silence, aside from maybe gasps of horror and shock, and you can believe swift punishment will be devied out.
    Inversly, we have the word "faggot".  Here is a hateful and derisive word that is thrown about without thinking, a euphemism for any insult.  This, of course, would not be tolerated among the aforementioned patrons.


    So that's that.  Like my previous entry, i've used the journal as a rough draft, a very handy tool to quickly jot down streams-of-consciousness which i later ruminate on, and potentially, repair and add to. Njoi.

I am still here. [Apr. 26th, 2007|07:35 pm]

Thanks to my friend Colton i now carry a pocket journal. This pocket journal i have named "Impact". Impact was with me amidst the glitz and glamour that comprised Grad Night at Disney World. I was struck with a thought, standing there dazed by the worthlessness of it all, and with that, i promptly recorded this at approximately 2 am as the sky trickled its hate upon the whole affair:

I am finding a growing disconnect between myself and the majority of my peer group. 
They live by the Pulse, the Lights, The Beat.
They bump and grind, hoot and holler, cat call and grab-ass.
They are one mindless, writhing orgy of American youth...

But I can't dance.

That's that.  The third line came after the initial stream of thought ,as did "American", so it goes.

This Time, This Year [Oct. 10th, 2006|02:10 am]

he says he's tired of working overtime, troubles weighing on his mind in class. he said he'd like to pack his bags and run away, and never look back. He says this life of mine's like doing time for crimes that i didn't commit.

lyrics are inspirational. I still haven't made any progress in regards to determining my future, i better get on the ball ( go to college, be a man, what's the fucking deal?) or else i won't amount to anything.

I was in a musical, my one true extracurricular activity. That's over and done with, i saw some bros briefly, hopefully we have some more Bromance this weekend.

Big events are coming up, and they require time and effort, so let's hope i have both.

I want to get some talent. or Do Something.

so the semester draws to a close, that used to be a good thing but now the most horrific exams we have yet faced loom ahead of us. oh well, can't do anything to stop it, might as well get them over with and head off for some vacation fun. deecerona is in town so once again he can be included in the festivities. i have yet to make any significant progress in AP, i'm a self-conscious waste of space in that class. we'll see what happens with that come May. on the upside as i said, the week is almost over, and next week friday brings vacation. i plan to see Kong this weekend, hopefully that will put me in an exam destroying state of mind. also, i may go to Peru.
