Zoot Suit Wars and Enumerated Articles [Sep. 29th, 2006|10:19 am]

Life is too short for fighting.....

I am happy/relieved this week is over...I cannot believe how fast this semester is going by...I have stayed really busy....

I realized how much I love writing for the newspaper yesterday...I get to meet so many cool people and I had to pause and think of all the friends I have made because of it...surfers, clothing designers, bands from reggae to punk to rock opera writers, talked to deans about school issues and regulations, record store owners, people who live in totally different worlds than I do...I love meeting new people...

I think everyone is interesting and it makes me examine my life a lot more closely....

Last night I went to an art exhibit opening on an artist who I am writing an article on. His name is Jeremy Millard and he was awesome. His artwork was amazing. He looked awkawrd because there all these rich contributors to the college for his exhibit and he was all dressed up with skateboard shoess which is typical of me, ha. I can't wait to interview him. He surfs and gets a lot of his musings from the ocean and being a waterman. The ocean is a vast inspiration I suppose.

After the art show, Mike, Mellisa, and Matt (that is a lot of M's) when downtown and ate at this cool resteraunt with art by another student which was beautiful as well. It was laid back and fun watching the clubgoers slowly start to trickle in downtown as it got later. I guess I will never be a club person. But downtown on a Thursday night makes for fabulous people watching, everyone from cowboys to gothic to frat boys. We discussed how shoes really show an individual sometimes. I went home afterwards and cleaned/dishes/room/bathroom/laundry for two hours...I miss home sometimes...

I met my neighbor when I took the garbage out. He was really nice and works on the set of One Tree Hill. He likes punk music and has the coolest old truck that he takes off roading all the time.

I declared my major today.

Everyone is going out of town this weekend! Between shows/home/work, I am left to fend for myself. BUT, Matt and I are going to see "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown," that a local theater is putting on. It should be a good time....

Here's hoping to a happy friday and a good weekend,
Ash

Atm surcharge karma [Sep. 14th, 2006|01:24 pm]

[mood |blahblah]
[music |john lennon]

So today, I was very upset because I am tired, most likely failed a biology test that I studied three days for (which is a dumb class anyway because it isn't my major, but for some reason is required), and hate all boys. So I want to get an orange juice from the library coffee shop and I realize I have to get money out from the atm, which charges 2 dollars, and I think that is a tad ridiculous. I got my 10 dollars out and there was a 50 dollar bill stuck on it.

ATM surcharge karma?

My internal monolouge?
1.) Is the psych department doing a study of how often people will turn in something that doesn't belong to them?
2.) Where do I give this back?
3.) Maybe this is just my divine payback for all the previous surcharges?

Question: Was anyone else ever raised with A.)Class
B.)Respect especially for other people's things


My roommate has not even been here for longer than a week and already has managed to anger me quite a bit. Note: I paid for 200.00 down payments on cable and 100.00 down payment on electricity. I didn't ask her to pay me back. I also bought EVERYTHING FOR THE APARTMENT! This includes tv,dvd player, furniture, plates, cleaning stuff, tables, EVERYTHING! It is alright because I will be here for three years while she is only here for one. BUT I still paid for everything. Also, she said she would move in this summer and she didn't. But she came down a few times and used the cable/electricity etc. and didn't pay for it. I had to ask her about it MORE than ONCE and she finally agreed to.
Second Point: Last night she had a bitchy girl and 2 guys over. I didn't care. They were drunk and high, leaving the apartment in a mess. I didn't care. Though the techno was still really loud at 4 this morning, I didn't say anything. I just decided it would be best to go over to my friends apartment and crash there. But as I was getting my cell phone I could hear my roommate saying, "GUYS, be quiet my roommate might be sleeping." While I am pretty sure, the apartments around me weren't sleeping as well, her friend decided to yell, "Oh, she can get over it, this is college!" Thanks sweetheart, for being a bitch to me before I even did anything to her.

THEN
I come out of the room while the girl almost breaks my dvd player, if not broke it.

While yelling if I have the new gorillaz cd.


I don't.


And then I very nicely said, "I am going over to my friends." While she was like I'm sorry, and I said, "It's ok."

Honestly, I didn't mind the noise. I just wanted my dvd player to still work and that girl to get punched in the face.


SO, this morning the trash is stacked up really high because my roommate doesn't know where the dumpster, that is located right next to us,is.

They drank all my coke, all my milk which I just bought that day, and beer that my friends had left over here.

TO TOP IT OFF

They slept in my bed.


THAT IS DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!


I want to punch someone now. Seriously.....

I love driving at night....this has been true for quite some time, but I have especially enjoyed it as of recently. It might be this way because during the day in Wilmington, traffic is packed and there is a sort of chaotic feel to everything. But at night, civilization is abandoned...and there is a sort of peaceful freedom about that...

I have fallen into this literary fixation recently....I cannot watch television anymore for some reason. I suppose I have always been this way, but nothing interests me and I have long since seen the days where television engulfs my attention to where I can percieve nothing else (which happened when I was younger). So much of it seems like overplayed mtv crap and bad reality television with overpaid actors and crappy scripts...the only thing I truly find myself watching are Legends of the Hidden Temple reruns and the Deadliest Catch show because I am (and I will admit this) a little amused and interested in people led by a crusty old sea captain who are giving it their all for a bunch of crabs....

I had the worst time ever at work today...to make it short, there is one person on your waiter shift at the resteraunt who makes sure you clean your 5 tables (change all 7 tables sauces, sweep, wipe off tables, roll 2 baskets of silverware, yada ya ya). Except I had to do all this and open the resteraunt at10:00 which meant I hauled out 10 huge containers of dressings, salads, cut lemons, swept and mopped the whole resteraunt) and then had 8 tables by myself(many which had 4-8 people) at once. Needless to say, I was exhausted by 1:30. Usually the shift leader(the person who makes sure you clean your tables) is pretty relaxed about anyone who opened anyway and besides I am a hard worker(I can honestly say) and will fix any mistakes (sometimes I miss things). But the whole point of this brings me to a blonde girl with a serious attitude problem...

First, she wanted to get technical with the number of silverware I rolled which she gave up after seeing there wasn't anymore silverware left for me to roll. Then she made me wait an extra 30 minutes because she was "busy" with one table....she told me at one point one of my sauces was not full enough,then too full, then my tables didn't have a pepper shaker pushed back far enough so it didn't "look presentable," after making me sweep under a table 3 times. This was not her job. In fact, she was only supposed to make sure I did my job, not critique me to strict standards

In short, she was a bitch. And in a furthur point, she made sure that I knew her actions were calculated and on purpose. She doesn't like me. And this brings me to the point I thought about the way home tonight. People become intoxicated with little power.

So, for some reason I started thinking about Hitler. While I won't argue with the fact that Hitler was a sadistic human being who slaughtered millions of innocent people, I will bring up this question, did Hitler's enormous amount of power give him these sudden feelings of hate, or was he simply pulling a lever on a political machine by unleashing executions and making scapegoats out of Jews and other "unacceptable" humans, or quite frankly was he so enamored by power that he just could perform what he was doing and he became numb to it and felt that by unleashing his anger on those humans, he was unleashing the anger he felt toward everyone who ever wronged him in life

While making someone sweep the floor three times and executing millions of Jews are certainly not on the same level, I just can't shake the fact that people who are given power or control, even the tinest fraction will execute that power to the fullest extent. It has been proven in countless psychological experiments (Stanford Prison experiment, etc).

Sorry for that random thought

I miss Kernersville, well everyone in it....I am about to head to work at 10:30. I got to see my brother these past two weeks and it as been awesome. I will miss him! He is heading back to LA on Wednesday! I am in a wonderful/groggy mood right now. The Hurricanes won (yes!), Glasscasket was amazing and their new cd is amazing as well, I am heading to Pittsburgh Wednesday (DOUBLE YES!), and I will see Pearl Jam on Friday (YES x seven). I had a good night at work last night, caught a frog, let him go, ate some oreos,and packed. I am going to see Eric Clapton on the 17th with my dad and possibly Mark if he can come.

After 2:00 today, I won't have to serve ribs to people anymore for a week. RIbs make me gag. Seriously they do.....

Love you
