Power Cords for a Teenage Heart

Holy crap! I can't even begin to tell you how insanely crazy this weekend was (unless you count that), and by weekend i mean since Thursday. I had planned to update... but that's not going to happen tonight, it's already past midnight and i haven't had time to sleep. I leave you with this, some pictures from The Get Up Kids reunion show!


sincerely,
pocket Josh

PS. I think i am going to try and redesign the blog very soon. Maybe that will restore my vim.

Upon the Destruction of Neverland

When you grow up, move out, get a life, there are certain things that come with it. Responsibility, freedom... taxes. It's all part of life. The holidays remind us all about growing up, i'm sure up to the point where you have your own kids, and you are able to reminisce about old times and carry on tradition. But i digress. When you get your own apartment, you start hosting parties, and having friends over.

Friday, i had mine. I thought it was a success. No body broke anything (bones, glasses, tv's), so that has to count for something. Next time, i will extend the invitation out to more people, but this time i wanted to keep it smaller.
Come Sunday, Laura had her get-together. I appreciated how my friends truly felt like family this year. This was probably the best Easter i have had in 5 years (at least). After an uplifting church service, we stuffed ourselves with the finest brunch God would allow our hands to prepare. We cleaned up, and headed to the park to play on the swings, and throw the frisbee around. Then we came back, had an easter egg hunt debacle, and passed out from a sugar crash while watching TV. It was a good Sunday...

also lately (to fill in the gaps);
-i did laundry (trust me it's exciting when there is that much piled up),
-i made paper globes,
-i ate ohana (not family, just the restaurant chain),
-i played some kane and lynch (for maybe the last time),
-i cleaned my apt.,
-i found a little more of myself,
-i watched Bee-Movie. (eh, it was more of a C Movie)
-i started a couple projects for myself.

The other Easter asshole,
Josh

Pantone 7491

Earlier, i had a full post about how things are really stressful right now for me. And well pretty much just down right suck. However, I promised myself i wouldn't post about nonsense like that on this blog anymore (unless i do it creatively. haha.)

Here is a list of some stuff that happened this weekend:
- got rid of a ton of recycling
- got offered a job at a recycling place.
- met Lindsay's boyfriend at his surprise party.
- had an uplifting 2 and a half hour phone conversation
- saw Semi-Pro (it was pretty good).
- went to Palm Sunday service with Aaron's Dad.
- went to the Sweet Tomato.
- went to see Bodies Revealed at Union Station.
- did palates for the first time at 10PM Sunday.
- made custard.
Things that didn't happen?:
- go to the gym
- sulk
- shop at old navy
Lately, i have decided (for myself):
- St. Patrick's day is stupid. it's an excuse, not a holiday.
- you can't tell a person something they are willing to hear.
- i can't fix everything, even though i want to.
- finish "Body for Life"
- the heart is an organ to circulate oxygen throughout the body. it conveys no actual thoughts or emotions.
- people can be real douchebags even when they are not trying

Sorry for no fun stuff today. Maybe when work isn't so crazy it will be easier... but lately i haven't seen anything that is blowing my mind.

Thank you Lindsay for allowing me to come over and do laundry, and in turn, i didn't drink myself into a coma.

Love, Mr. Dusel

The Rest of the Story.

i'm sitting here and i can hardly feel my limbs. I feel as if i'm floating in place. Even my head is heavy on my neck. And as much as this sounds like a pleasant experience, i feel like i am the scum of the earth. Like life is just fucking with me. I looked at the clock a moment ago, and it was 11:11 again. I gave up on wishing long ago, because none of it ever comes true.



...I nodded off for a while...

*Edit
Last night, while drunk, i wrote some things that i probably shouldn't have. I kept to as little detail as possible with exactly how i felt, but when if comes down to it, i still may have said too much. I didn't sleep well at all last night, worry about what i said, and what might have been going on outside of these four walls. To summarize what has happened in the last few days is actually very simple: I was bummed out because living out here just got harder, so i had a little to much to drink, and i drank my problems away. And if any of you know me, that's really not how i do things. The reality of it is it actually made me feel worse and i became a sniveling girl. There are some things i need to clear up in my head by either working them out on my own or talking to the appropriate people. I don't want to keep waking up mornings with bedfellows that will plague me the rest of the day. I need to use what has happened to me and allow it to make me a better person. It's either do or die this time. Lets hope not literally.

-Josh

Things Will Never Be The Way We Expect Them

I went to a wedding reception tonight for my friends Beau and Em. They actually looked really great. Em in her dress and Beau in his tux. And for a brief moment, I could see myself in their shoes. Then, i came to a realization; obviously, I'm pretty unbearable, and will never be in their position. The night ended a little earlier than i would have liked, hence the reason I writing this post before even 11 o'clock, half drunk, on a Saturday night. Now that I am home, alone, i am in the final stages of being drunk. The one were you stop having a good time and you start letting your mind think too much. The stage right before bed. I made some disappointing choices on my part tonight. One, was talking to women that are taken... who knows, maybe both of the decisions were that. If you don't know what i mean by that... then too bad.

This is the track listing for Em and Beau:

Everyone else can enjoy the mix if they wish as well.

Maybe i'll sketch in bed until i pass out.

Congrats guys! Girls suck, but i give credit to anyone who can find the right person to get married to.

Visitor

Kelly is my cubical neighbor. Kelly is like an older me. He enjoys anime, punk-rock music, lonely lunches, and hopeless romances. He recently found a girl that he really liked. He also recently lost that girl. I never really talk about the people at work, but this morning i felt compelled because he had mentioned how he had just broke up with his girlfriend... on his birthday. It struck a nerve in me, and i realized i was staring at myself. He is secretly all broken up about it, but he wasn't really letting the world know how much, especially his newly-made-ex-girlfriend. He went out of his way to make he happy and then one day he felt it was over even before it happened. Now we both sit here at work unhappy with our current persona.

Work is empty today. Everyone has something more interesting to do than sit in a sad little cubical and stare blankly at a computer screen. Research. Vacation. Whatever your poison. So, I believe, seperately, we are going to take off early today.

There is something about Postal Service that is very comforting and depressing at the same time. If you are thinking USPS... then you should possibly stop reading my blog.

Trivia night was a lot of fun. I felt good being able to at least assist with crap 90's music trivia. Who knew actually listening to Wheetus, Harvey Danger, and LEN would help. Napster and I were good friends back then. I learned that I didn't know my Care Bears as well as i thought. I also learned that i have other friends out in KC. I hope they feel the same.

Maybe I will post some Illustrations later.
