final thoughts

1 Jan

Kay. New Years resolutions:

-Firstly, I am going to attempt to start pronouncing things correctly.
-I am going to love with every ounce of my being. Not just one person, mind you, but everyone that comes in contact with me.
-I am going to accept change.
-Appreciate new things.
-Learn more guitar tidbits.
-Grow out of my awkwardness.
-Keep writing on this blog.
-Start silkscreening things.
-Write my own songs.
-learn to wait.
-learn to attack & release.
-learn to carry myself like a member of society (sometimes)
-achieve honor roll? Maybe.
-read up on bands, etc. in order to be a better music-reccommender.
-Question my motives.
-never surrender.
-try something new and not addicting.
-learn Swedish. Rudimentary Swedish, that is. Nästa:
-go to Bonnaroo.

Goodnight. Have a wonderful New Year’s. I hope your hangovers are gentle and you are able to get up for work tomorrow. Or, if you’re like me, I hope you wake up when you feel like it and have awesome enough dreams to warrant being written down.

Love, Regina/The White Whale.

31 Dec

Well, only a few hours to go.

I kind of wish I could spend New Years with my friends rather than my parents-maybe have a little champagne (like a single glass- I am not an advocate of binge drinking) and count down together, loudly. Haha! Oh that would be fun. Perhaps next year, if I can arrange it.

I think it’s about time for an AWESOME THINGS THAT HAVE HAPPENED THIS YEAR list. So:

•France. I went there.
•New Orleans. The Quiz Bowl team goes there and proceeds to have a blast. Besides Monty, of course, who sat in his hotel room and ate Pop-Tarts and drank Coke. Ew.
•Ryan first sets foot on island.
•Sierra comes down to visit, tells me about all her boy-drama and gets burned at the beach
•I get into DUNGEN.
•MJ dies.
•The 80s experience mass revival by teenagers
•Passion Pit.
•The Xx.
•I go to Vancouver.
•I get a bass!
• Kyle and Lillian finally are an item… for a month. Then Kyle starts being a bit of a dick and the relationship decays from there, leading to me squishing the tears out of Lil.
•iPhones. Everyone has them.
•Death Note. Bleach. Japanese things are suddenly very cool.
•Lots of new album/EP releases (see earlier post re: releases)
•Bortglomt worms his way into my conciousness
•Lonely Island.
• Flipper babies make Wil cry (from laughter)
•I watch Donnie Darko and instantly respect Jake Gyllenhal
• Sudden Kid A epic
• I start this blog!
•White Denim
•Another Bonnaroo
•French class suddenly gets REALLY HARD
• A Clockwork Orange. Stuck. In my head.
• Dark Knight, Avatar, New Moon all released

I can proabably think of more, but I’ll finish this list tomorrow.
One more blog post today. Probably at eleven/12 or so.
