Taking things a day at a time

New blog just for writing

Song of the day: "High Hopes" by Pink Floyd

I've decided that I'm going to start a new blog that I will update everyday. Each daily post will have some kind of piece of writing that I wrote that day. I think it's important that I keep writing, and that I should do it every single day. So whether it's a poem, a snipet of a short story, whatever. Any kind of creative writing counts.

So here's the link. Follow me and read my stuff and tell me what you think!

I'm kinda pissed that my mother neglected to inform me and Mika that our aunty, uncle, and cousin from Big Island are here. And I mean here, as in at Pearlridge with my mother at this very moment.

I've probably mentioned this before, that I grew up without knowing much of my family, on either parents' side. My aunty Pearl and her family are the second closest relatives I know, and that really isn't saying much at all. Last time they came out here was when I was a senior, I think, and we only saw them for about...3 hours. Granted, I'm not sure what we'd do if we spent more time together, because I don't really know them and we grew up on different islands. But still, the fact that my mom just kinda left to go see them, leaving me and Mika asleep this morning, that kinda annoys me.

Of course I wasn't sleeping when she got the phone call from Aunty Pearl saying that she was getting her rental car and that she needed directions to Pearlridge. The wall between my room and my mother's isn't all that thick, so I woke up to that phone call at 8, which is way earlier than I needed to be up on a fucking Sunday.

Bah. Whatev.

Sing Me A Song Sunday:
"So Caught Up In You" by 38 Special
I've been on a 38 Special kick for a while. I really like their southern rock feel that they have to all their music. It's got that in-between rock vibe, where's it not so hard rock, but it's not soft rock either. Anyways, I like all their music, even the songs I've never heard before. :)

I'm trying to decide what ringtone I want to get. I already have "Carry On My Wayward Son" and "Shakin" that I bought. I realized that I don't ever get songs sung by females, even on my old phone. It's usually all buy dudes. What does that say about male and female artists? Or about my own personal taste? Anyways, here's a tentative list of choices:

1. "You And I Both" by Jason Mraz
2. "This Is How We Do It" by Montell Jordan
3. "Why Can't This Be Love" by Van Halen
4. Anything by 38 Special
5. "Viva La Gloria" by Green Day
6. "Fascination" by Alphabeat
7. "Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'" by Journey

And speaking of phones. I've been looking online for phones with keypads. Which is stupid, because I just got my current phone in February, when, in hind-sight, I probably shouldn't have done. Because I didn't really need a new phone at the time, nor did I need the specific purple one I got that cost more. And I don't think I should've switched from Team Mobile to Verizon. Granted I'm saying that because I just saw this phone that's only offered through Team Mobile:

I feel so dumb now. Goddamn, I kinda really want this phone. Mother of shit, I shouldn't have switched to Verizon. I'm such a dumbass. >_<


I got "This Is How We Do It" as my new ringtone. Although it was a close call between that and "You And I Both." But I wanted Montell's song before I wanted Jason's, so the next one I get will probably be "You And I Both."

And I keep looking at pictures of this fucking phone and I want it so bad!!!!

This is random... but, in your other blog... the Some Where Over the Rainbow that you mention, I love that version. One of my favorites.

Ok random, but I really wanted to tell you that.

Also, I like your pieces. Keep that up, I like reading your writing. You are talented... true story!
