2:06pm: 2007
in comparison to 2006, i can vouch that this year was way more positive
and fruitful.

the following i can remember:
.doing yoga for my senior project
.volunteered at tlc academy from nov 2006 - june 2007- best place ever!
.bought my cycle for my 18th b-day
.recorded our split 7" in portland with devin from the black black black-coming out early 2008 from what i hear now
.longest relationship so far ended in may w/jackie
.finished with high school- magical times.
.traveling by my lonesome to germany and romania.
   -germany: stayed with my mom's sister a couple of days in koln.
                       went to clarholz up in nordrhein-westphalia  to attend cry me a river fest where i saw ed gein, trainwreck, and zann. a guy from dusseldorf by the name of heinrick let me sleep in his friends car with him and gave me a ride at 6 in the morning to the trainstation. thank you!
                       spend the next 3 days in berlin; not too impressive really, went to zann's record store and gave em the last slice of butter cd's, and roomed with this old australian guy who's been all over the fucking world. the beer was good tho.             
                       went back to koln for 2 days, spent a long long time in the frankfurt airport waiting for my flight to sibiu, romania. almost made a nice gypsy girl from the czech rep. loose her train to vienna.
   -romania: spent most of the time in sibiu with my friend bogdan, went to one of my friend's cabin in this small village by the name of cut. got way too drunk one night, took all my clothes off from sweating so much, and almost passed out in his bathtub. went to bucharest to visit armina and ira, learned lots of shit in bucharest at this bar called cool cat, then proceeded to vama veche on the black sea with ira and armina. met the nicest dudes they were friends with (gonza, puff, and others), got introduced to drum and bass for real, crazy ride back to constanta in this taxi cab where we caught the train from. somehow lost a lot of money my last night at the black sea and had no money for a train ticket, thank you armina and ira for everything. spent more valuable time with my relatives, my friend i haven't seen since 7th grade came to sibiu (he moved to the indiana).

.tour down to california with travis:
      -ate lunch with typhoon in my backyard out in the soon, served by my kind mom. played the kick-off show at camp nowhere with typhoon.
      -played on a bus in oakland with typhoon
      -before playing at the smell in LA, juan travis and i went to get some grub, robert flew down to hang and surprise the shit out of me by being there in the restaurant. kicked it in LA, and san diego with juan, michael, and travis; went to a tight beach down in s.a. too.
       -longest time spent at the wheel in my life was on the last day of tour: from oakland to seattle- 11 hrs.
       -2 days later played our 1st show in vancouver, bc- will came along and made shit great; thanks :).

.college at ubc (vancouver, canada):
    -best 3 months of my life so far; had the best roommate i could ask for: ken chase from santa rosa, ca. he isnt coming back next semester though so i'll get a new roommate- cross yr fingers! met a lot of nice international students and canadians. came back to seattle quite a bit to play shows. started buying and listening to vinyl- what was i thinking all these years?! got a job at the ubc daycare on campus this october. passed all my classes- come visit, already!

here's to 2007, and 2008 which i hope won't disappoint too hard.

i'm gonna be around issaquah/seattle/whatever from wednesday night til
saturday morning, so i hope to see you around hopefully.

stuff's been good, college treating me the way it should.
we have had 8 firealarms up until now and it dosen't seem to stop.

10:16am: everyone!


i just got out of my history class and have a one hour break, then political
science and work from 12:30 - 3:30 at the ubc daycare. 
everything is going pretty well; i haven't made any close friends yet though
which is good and bad. i'm content with muggy weather up here, but
autumn sure looks better with some sun shining through the leaves. 

what's everyone been up to? general and specific information is welcome.
i will hopefully have some pictures up soon from campus and my room.

12:08am: last 9 days

- arrived in koln (cologne), germany. stayed there 2 nights at my mom's sister's apartment; ate constantly italian and got a glimpse of the town one of the days. 

- left for clarholz,tiny tiny village in NW germany, to see zann and ed gein at this sort of bar called gasthaus muck. show was awesome, talked with two drunk brits (note: they were drunk by the time i got there at 11 AM), met a guy named henrick from dusseldorf who let me sleep in his friends car for the night and drove me to the trainstation at 6 in the morning. 

- arrived in berlin train station and started walking down a street that looked like would get me downtown. ended up walking about 3+ hours to the youth hostel i had a 2 night reservation at after i saw 'downtown berlin'. to be honest, i didn't like berlin as much as i thought i would've; everything nice and historical was at least an hour walk away and i realized what a shitty traveler i was- didn't buy any maps, bus schedules, etc. 
          2nd day i walked over to zann's recordstore in east berlin called bis aufs messer. from there i went to this vegetarian restaurant called vonner which was closed on mondays. ended walking at least 8 hours that day
          3rd day attempted to hit up vonner before i left for koln, but it only opened at 14:00 which was complete shit for me. 
          not to mention, my room-mate was a 69 year old australian by the name of arthur who at some point got probably wrong impressions of my friendliness and got pretty into holding my arm and other shit while talking, which didn't quite pass my borderline of creepiness. 

- left for koln, slept there a night. 

- took the train to frankfurt airport at 21:00; had to stay in the airport till 8:00 for my flight to vienna. bumped some serious limp bizkit, entombed, converge, wu, and the streets. met on the train a slovak gypsy woman by the name of jessica. chilled out; she didn't speak great german or english she was heading for vienna too, but by train, and due to miscommunication almost made her lose her train.

- arrived in sibiu today at 13:00, still haven't slept since i left koln, but lots of coffee helped. went to my grandparent's house, caught up a little bit, found out my guinea pig Dee Dee died a while ago, hung out with my friend valentin and his girlfriend at some bar, then met up with a sort of x-girlfriend by the name of tina in a cafe, and then came home. 

teenagers are looking slicker and have horrible dyed hair+rat tails.
that's about it.
i don't feel like i've been gone from here almost at all.

12:21am: please please
give yourselves a big round of applause.

i woke up at 7 30 this morning to sign up for classes at UBC.
i had no idea what to take, but it turned out nice.
they do semesters instead of quarters over there, and
two of my courses carry on through both semsters.
so it looks like this:

.approaches to literature
.religions of the world
.differential calculus
.government of canada
.theories of myth (2nd semester only)
.intro to creative writing (2nd semester waiting list)

happy summer everyone,
Current Mood: good

21st April 2007

12:01pm: quitting
It's a long time coming,
It's a long way down,
It's long division,
Crack and divide.
This is a parting,
Some separation,
We lay in pieces,
Cracked to survive.
I'm not your villain,
Not your adversary,
I'm not your reason to crack and divide.
Current Mood: surprised
