i'm just happy i'm alive

avada.
at noon, i was nearly run over by three cars. two cars and a truck, to be precise. the truck was the one that brushed me with death. i had the right of way, of course, since i'm a pedestrian and he has a fucking stop sign and i have a crosswalk in a residential. but none of this mattered to the truck because he barreled around the corner as i stepped onto the road. if i was walking any faster, he would've smacked me unconscious. a couple more inches, and we're talking like, someone call an ambulance because this kid just got run over by a fucking truck. he would've run over my legs had i not launched myself off the side of the truck into, um, "safety". i say "safety" because after that, two more cars on a one-way (at a stop sign, mind you) start coming at me as if i were in-fucking-visible!

it would've been ironic had i actually been hit, since i was 98% sure that i wasn't going to go to class this afternoon until the 2% kicked in. maybe God recognized my favorable decision making and delayed my walk by .03 seconds so i could survive and go to my shit classes.

love ya!

My box in a box

avada.

yeah that's right.
wet.
it's thundering and lightning and pretty awesome outside.

this morning, i went to shipley's to get breakfast and drove to skyline for the following reasons: i was bored, it was early, and i hadn't seen the water in a long time. so i'm driving down skyline and everything's as it should be... except at the very end i see a clearing that's never been there before. they're building a fucking community out there! that's defacing skyline. you can't just build houses where kids go to make out and smoke pot and drink beer. i mean, you can... but skyline is skyline because it's so far away from civilization. i guess i can still go there to make out and stuff... but it just won't be the same (partly because i'm 22 years old and not in high school anymore).

anyway, courtney, maura and i went back later and drove through the clearing a bit and almost got stuck in the soggy sand dunes. there was some definite trespassing going on. it felt kind of like garden state when they went out to the... what was it... trench? valley? fault? i don't know. but it felt like garden state. and i hate when i experience something that triggers a movie scene in my head, because it means someone's been there--done that--and it's not special. but it was special. i'm not sure why it was special, but it was. ok, i'm going to stop talking now because i'm heading in the direction of idle banter, blah blah blah.

goodnight.

gagged.
so there's this road in austin and every time i come to it, i ask myself, "left or right?" but it doesn't matter which way i turn--it's always the wrong way and i'll have to turn around and go the other way. today i turned left and was wrong and i turned right yesterday and was wrong then too.

Faith Hill is a comic genius.

Clearly, she's joking. And everyone is giving her shit about it. It looks like something Courtney would do!

My entire complex's garage is completely full minus one space. Apparently, only one of us has a job. They should just rename Westridge Condos to My Parents Pay For Everything, Bitch.
