Writer's Block: And the Apple Goes To

Who is/was your favorite teacher in school?


Vincent Nasta, one of my art teachers from high school. He was like a second father to me and was one of the most compassionate and encouraging people I've ever met. Unfortunately, he passed away a year ago (today actually) flying a plane during an air show in Upstate NY. He had a passion for flying and was an amazing artist.

Writer's Block: Bite Me

From Dr. Polidori's Lord Ruthven to Stephenie Meyer's Edward Cullen, the annals of vampire lore are filled with attractive, charming bloodsuckers. Which one would you most want to be bitten by?
Lestat or Alice Cullen
I'm bored so I decided to scan some of my photos for my Portrait assignment for my photography class. I love how they came out, they're of Jessica and Drew..

ugh

I don't know where to start, what to say. I feel so emotionally crappy and whatnot.

My meds aren't helping anymore and I feel like I have hit rock bottom...but thats probably just the bipolar talking. I just want things to be normal, I don't want to be depressed...and I don't want to be so extremely happy that I can't control what I do. I feel like I have to type in here about pointless bullshit in order to prevent myself from doing something stupid...and I feel like I will do something stupid tonight if I don't keep myself occupied.

I can't sleep, some people were over before. My brother is depressed which brings me down more, he was crying and everything. I just don't know what to do.

I can't stand this rambling, I can't stand the thoughts in my mind, I can't stand life.

I'm gonna go, I can't do this journal thing anymore.

I got my tattoo yesterday, it came out awesome. I'll post pictures when I get the chance..

I Play Dead...

Play dead again. It just might stop before the end.
If I pretend you may not see the pain I'm in.

So close to me, can't tell what I'm supposed to be.
Don't stop to breathe, can't bear to think what you might see.
This tourniquet, these blessed hands around my head
So I can keep from...

Bleeding.
I've got to find a way to stop before it starts.
Finding its way through my veins right to my heart.
I never thought it something everyone could see.
And it kills within me.

[CHORUS:]
I won't, I won't leave without a trace.
I won't be erased.

It's in my head, I can't forget what you once said.
The words I read, the fractured soul that I can't mend.
Right here with me, killing the void I used to be.
Remembering through fading sparks of memory.

Two broken hands lift seven wounds and fight to stand
To keep the lungs from..

Caving.
I've got to find a way to stop before it starts.
Finding its way through my veins right to my heart.
I never thought it something everyone could see.
And it kills within me.

[CHORUS]
I won't, I won't leave without a trace.
I won't be erased.

Turning. It's moving. Escaping right through me.
I care not. I bleed not. For you I believe not.
I play dead.

Tela, Jessica,Brianna, and i dont feel like thinking of other people..

it's been awhile...

It's been awhile since I last updated. My mom is getting married and has a gorgeous enagagement ring and wedding band. I got a job at zumiez and I love it more than any other job I've ever had. The people there are so awesome.

I start school on Tuesday. I'm looking forward to it. I'm taking: Intro to Literature, Western Civilization II, Algebra I, Mythology and Photography. I only have school on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays which is great. It leaves me plenty of time to make sure I get my work and crap done...and so I can take on more hours at work.

I got my industrial pierced the other day and I have begun to stretch my ears, one ear is a 6 gauge and the other is an 8.

Everyone went off to college and now it's becoming more real as to how we probably won't see half of our friend as often....if ever for the rest of our lives. We are all going our separate ways and that's pretty much the end of it. Thankfully, some of my close friends chose to reamin on the island for college and go to Suffolk like me.

I've been cleaning and preparing to move because I am moving to Manorville in a couple of months. Tomorrow I have a busy day, I have to go back to Suffolk to hand in my FAFSA form and to buy my textbooks. It seems like my busy-ness is never ending...
surgery tomorrow morning....fun...

i will be in the hospital overnight.

ben comes home from the hospital today, i'm not really looking forward to it.. :(

i have had so many breakdowns over this past weekend and i think that I am slowly starting to crack...I can't take things anymore....I just want all of this to end..
I just got home from Virginia yesterday, and I have been depressed ever since being back on this island. I hate Long Island, I want to live in Virginia Beach so bad and I plan on being down there within a year or so. I was down there for my cousin Rick's wedding and it was so beautiful. The wedding was in North Carolina and it was on the beach in front of a lighthouse. The reception was at this 1.6 million dollar house that was so gorgeous. The day overall was great, it was relaxed and laid back, the best way to have a wedding in my opinion. We stayed at my cousin Jillian's house in Virginia Beach for several days.

It was so fun, I never wanted to leave. We spent so much time down at the beach on the boardwalk and just relaxed and enjoyed being around family. Now I'm back here and back to the suckiness of Riverhead...
