Do this anonymously.

1. One secret.
2. One compliment.
3. One random thing.
4. One love note.
5. Lyrics to a song.
6. How long we've been friends.
7. And a hint to who you are. Something that I will know who you are but no one else will.

legit entry in a little bit probably, but since this has to be public I'm gonna do it seperately.

I posted a bulletin about this, but I wanted to make a livejournal entry about it as well for those of you who don't read bulletins or just won't see it for whatever reason.

Saturday night I was reminded of how cruel and inhumane people can be.

I'm just now getting around to posting this but I've been really upset about it since it happened.

Katie, Jerome, and I were spending Jerome's last night in town at our favorite diner/cafe. We got on the train to head back and Katie and I were sitting in the seats directly to the right of the door (I don't know how many of you ride CTA trains or how familiar you are with the seating, but I'm talking about the ones that face the opposite side of the train as opposed to the front or back of the train) and Jerome was sitting to our right. Behind Jerome there was a group of about five young guys, I would say ages 17-19, and across the aisle from him there was a homeless man sleeping. The guys behind Jerome were being really loud and obnoxious, throwing balls of paper at the sleeping man and yelling at him to wake up. I thought it was pretty disgusting, the lack of decency towards other people, but he just stayed as he was so I figured if it didn't bother him there was no reason for me to get worked up over it. About 6 stops before we got off the train, another group of kids around that age, male and female, got on the train and they happened to know the guys that were already on there. There wasn't room for them on our right, where their friends were, so they stayed in the area by the doors, to our left, putting us directly in the middle of about 15 people. They all continued to talk loudly about what stops they were getting off at and so on. At the stop before ours they began harassing the homeless man again, pulling on his arm and yelling "YOU'RE MISSING YOUR STOP, ALL BUMS GET OFF AT JACKSON!" He was very barely awake and was trying to go back to sleep when the train began moving again, then the kid who was standing directly in front of me grabbed hold of the bars for standing passengers, pulled himself up, and began to kick the sleeping man in the face with both of his feet. I almost vomited right that second out of shock and disgust. As the train was coming to a stop they began yelling at the man to get off at that stop or else they would beat him. I can't think of any reason for this, as all he was doing was sleeping. I honestly can't imagine what he could have done in his sleep to make them so angry about him being on the train. We got off the train, as did the homeless man to avoid being beaten. I had to stop walking because I was shaking and crying uncontrollably, I honestly can't explain why it had such an effect on me but I still have to hold back tears writing this. We walked up to him to give him ten dollars so he could get something to eat and have money left over to get back on the train to sleep for the rest of the night, and before we said anything the man asked, "What did I do to them?" This was possibly the saddest part of it all; the look on his face, and the fact that I was at a complete loss for words, as I myself had no idea what he could have possibly done to them, and I still don't. I could barely speak to him because I felt so terrible and I was really worried that I was going to throw up. I still feel really terrible about the whole thing. I know that people have done and will continue to do much worse things to their fellow human beings, but it's so different when you witness something like that than just hearing a story about it.

Pick ten movies, look up their keywords on IMDB, and then post three of said keywords so people can guess at the movies you chose. No cheating!

1. Lost pet, Journey, Reunion
2. Fighting, Soccer, West Ham
3. Terminal Illness, First Love, Rebel
4. Knight, Tournament, Rock Music
5. Family Values, Gay Brother, Marriage Proposal
6. Music Store, Shoplifting, One Day
7. Severed Tongue, Shakespeare, Pie (I will be really impressed with whoever gets this)
8. Ex-Convict, Broadcasting, African American


I don't feel like doing 2 more. the end.

I've come to realize that everyone who has ever really loved me has grown to hate or resent me in some way.

and that really sucks.

So I'm in the middle of going through all my stuff an packing to get ready to move, and tthe other day I went through all my boxes of sentimental and random shit. It was really weird.

notable finds:
-some pictures from when I saw new found glory on st patrick's day 2005. yes, I took them with a disposabe camera, and yes, there is a picture of me with ian grushka in there.
-a thank you card from chris after we sent him sex and the city.
-a card from joya talking about how we are crazy to be spending so much money on "that fagel" and offering her "6 dolla"
-a christmas card from margot in 2005 talking about how amazing spring flyaway is going to be.
-pictures of me with each of the comley brothers in 2004, including the one where kyle shouted "SIAN LUVS KYLE 4EVA" right when we took the picture so we're both cracking up.
-an old bayside setlist written on half a sheet of notebook paper.
-Hit The Lights' "Leaving Town Tonight" on a CD-R that they gave me sometime in 2003 or 2004 I think. It says "www.hitthelightsmusic.com" on it. this was obviously pre-myspace.
-This ad for NFG's "Catalyst" that Tim stole for me off the window of a record store a couple weeks before the cd came out.
-a green bandana signed by panic! at the disco at first flyaway. and I mean Brendon, Ryan, Spencer, and Brent.
-letters from sabrina and roberta from last summer
-a certificate naming me "most likely to kidnap joe" as voted by ock. and the accompanying prize.
-and all the ticket stubs I've saved. lots of memories in those.


it's so weird that I'm leaving lexington in a few days. it's really hitting me as my room starts to look more empty. as much as I've wanted to leave for so long, there are things I'll miss.

List 5-10 things that you want to get off your chest. Things that youwould say to people just before you died, because we never know,tomorrow could be our last. (don't mention names, initials if youabsolutely have to.) repost!


1. I feel like you're constantly trying to compete with me, and that's the only reason we're friends anymore. I am so sick of you trying to one up me all the time, cause guess what? You never will. You will never live the life I live.

2. I think you are the most amazing person I know. You're smart, driven, selfless, and you love every part of life. You don't let petty shit bother you and you take everything in stride. You have so much potential, and of all my friends, I am most excited to see where you go in life. I wish I could be more like you. And you are way too modest about all of it to ever realize this is about you. You'd probably even reply saying "OH I KNOW NUMBER 2 IS ME" jokingly because you would never actually think it is you.

3. You one of my best. You are one of two people that understand me better than anyone else. You can understand how funny my inside jokes are even when you aren't a part of them, but you just get me so well that you can see why they're funny. I think if I ever had a twin sister she'd be something like you. I love you so much.

4. You are the other one of those two. Often times I find myself in a group of people, making a joke that no one understands because they aren't you, and I wish that you were right there with me to laugh about it, cause you're the only person in the world who would.

5. You completely consume me. I am head over heels in love with you and I wish I could be with you everyday. I love you so much that sometimes, when I'm away from you I physically ache because of it. At this point I really don't care if you know because it's better than holding it in whenever I'm with you and you put an arm around me and everything inside my chest explodes. I'm not even making sense. This is what you do to me. We're already best friends, and I know we'd be amazing together. I just don't know if I can keep waiting for you to realize that. I don't understand why she got her chance and she got to screw you over, because if I ever got to be with you I would do everything in my power to make sure nothing hurt you, ever.

6. You make me laugh until my insides hurt. You are such a beautiful person and I am so lucky to call you one of my best friends. You can be difficult at times but I just think about the way you are most of the time, and how much fun you are and I can forget about all the drama. It kills me that so many people have trouble doing that, sometimes when they are bitching about you I honestly think less of them because they let that petty shit make them forget about everything amazing in you.

7. I hate that you've let him do this to you. You've let him change who you are. You've turned into someone just like him because you think it will make the things he does hurt less. Just cut him off already and go back to being the girl I know and love, cause I miss her. It makes me so sad to see you on this track.

8. You are so fucking pathetic. Not to mention, insane. Stop making shit up so people will know your name. It's ok to just be human, you don't have to be infamous.
