Black Emperor, milk, Stanley Kubrick, new wave, Moog, the color pink, and the number 136.

The Early Morning Brings Ghosts To Life

This morning sucked; it's hard to look over at a clock reading "3:00 AM" (knowing you will have to deal with waking up at 6:30) and not get a little frustrated.  After tossing and turning for probably about four hours, I abandoned all hope for required REM and settled for the leftovers.

I feel pretty hostile - I'm finding myself just generally not okay with most of the thoughts running through my head, let alone the situtations I find myself in and the people I smile and greet.  Maybe this is a slap in the face to let some things go, but that's always easier said that done.  I find my mind clouded with inconsistencies and the words of invisible monsters - feeling at least two steps behind reality.

Have you ever felt like nothing is working out?  Where you just feel bombarded by a list of changes that never seems to get any shorter?  Maybe it's just the lack of sleep; maybe not.  Maybe I'm just tired to the point that I'm ready to close myself off in my room and pretend like nothing is really happening.  I feel stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Fuck.

Anyways, now that I've filled the page with a rant reminiscent of my junior year in high school, I'm happy to say that my sister got here safe and sound from Portland yesterday.  The adventure begins.
