so i meet elise on saturday, the fine person whose hobby i quoted two posts ago, and then i saw her at the library last night, and totally didnt realize until i was walking out the door. and that may be ok if i just saw her, but no. i asked her for a book(she works there, i dont just ask random people for books), and went throught the whole process of that book not being there. then when i walked out the door i remembered brandon commenting that she worked in the library and that must have been her. it had only been 20 hours max since i last saw her. so if you happen to read this elise, sorry if you thought i was rude.
so moving on. the place that i meet elise was at the wheaton grand for a concert. minerva and textbook and university and someone else played. the drummer for textbook was 7 or 8 for 12 on catching his flipped sticks this time. a definate improvement, though he had less attempts. minerva was good, though fil didnt die this time, so i didnt realize they were playing the song i wanted to hear. university was good. because they are good.
something i think i should mention since those who are reading this are those whom i would consider my friends and you might also consider me the same. and if we do friend stuff like hang out and go places, you might want to know this. i dont always talk. but that by no means indicates im not having a good time. if i dont have anything to say, i dont talk. i might just sit by myself and think. i thoroughly enjoy thinking, and just looking around. but if you wanted to come talk to me, i would not be opposed to that at all. most people talk enough to cover both themselves and me, so i find it is better to stay quiet sometimes. i dont like talking unless it is worth saying. kinda like ents i suppose. so if we are in a car together, or sitting together somewhere and im not saying anything, i am happy just to be in your presence. that makes me happy enough, talking is an extra bonus, but not always necessary. i think my friends at home have figured that out by now, but those of you at school may not have, and since ive gone to two shows in the last week with some people here and there were times of silence, i thought id explain.
my digital tools teacher is gretchen. i dont know her last name, she didnt tell that to us. but do you know what i do know? i would like to listen to coldplay with her. that doesnt mean any thing more than what it literally says. i found her mildly attractive at the beginning of class, but by the end, her attractiveness had grown on me. and about 3/4 of the way through class(its 3 hours long) the thought came into my mind, ‘id like to listen to coldplay with her.’
i hardly get to see michael smith at all this semester. chapel is the only time i think. that is not what one would consider a ‘good’ thing. as a matter of fact, i hardly see any of those that read this, this semester.
how long has it been since you broke out your solid state sampler vol. 1? i think its time for a reunion with your roots. one cannot deny the awesome-ness of extol and the glorious song of celestial completion. listening to norma jean compared to that is like bringing a knife to a gunfight. ooooooooooooooooo. hardcore just seems to have lost that weirdness and darkness and mysticism it once had. when long hair, skulls and crossbones, black clothing, eye-shadow and nailpolish, toughness, grundg-y-ness and blastbeats were necessary. now its become music even a mother could love, with tight pants, tight and short shirts, short hair, shaking hips and skinny cleanness. though my mother listened with no objection to solid state vol. 1 when i played it.
