Hello, LJ. It's good to be back.

Lots of things have changed since we last met.

I am tapering down the dosage of my Xanax XR, in the hopes of being completely anxiolytic-free by the winter. Or maybe even mid-fall. I am currently smoking like...well, not so much like a chimney, but like...a very small chimney. I usually smoke three fags a day when I smoke, tops. I am up to maybe five or so. It's only temporary, though. Until the Xanax and I have gone our separate ways. And I'm good at quitting cigarettes. I've done it a thousand times. :^)

I am also now in a healthy, monogamous relationship. The relationship is still in its infancy. We've only been dating for about a week, and both of us are going into it knowing that it won't be forever. But it's doing wonders for my self esteem. He is 9 years my senior, but we like each other. He doesn't emotionally coddle me the way silly boys do. He recognizes that my insecurities are best left ignored. Negative punishment. But he doesn't cruelly allow my anxieties to fester. I don't get "see you around"s, I get "later this week"s. He says I'm beautiful, and I'm starting to believe him. He holds my hand for hours at a time. It's all very good and nice.

In that same vein, I've started myself on a workout regimen. It's because I want to feel good about myself. I want to be able to get naked and stay naked with my..."gentleman caller". Every other day, I'm walking my dog, doing about 200 jumping jacks and 50 crunches, and if I've got the energy, going out for a nighttime jog. I'm also eating more. I'm trying to stop counting calories, but rather eat when I'm hungry until I am full, then pacing around a bit to facilitate quicker digestion in order to prevent restricting as well as binging/purging. I still can't bring myself to eat fast food (except Subway), and avoid extra fats of all sorts (salad dressing, mayonnaise, fried foods), but that's not my main concern right now. Plus, that isn't really even much of a problem. I've also been allowing myself a small bit of ice cream or cake on occasion. (Mostly) Everything in moderation.

I'm really excited about school. I'm taking choir, drawing I, English 102, fiction writing, biology 101, and yoga. It's only 15 credits, so I feel a little bit...disappointed in myself. But I know that it's irrational to beat myself up over it. I'm still recovering. I need a lot of self-care. I may end up taking 16 or 17, depending on whether or not I join the vocal ensemble (now called Spectra, for some stupid reason...all it makes me think of is Ghostbusters) and/or level 198 private voice. I might, just because singing makes me feel good. But I think I should limit myself to one or the other.

Things are going well. I am trying to cleanse myself of the hellish few months I suffered through. The memories linger, which is why I write. I do not have faith that everything will go swimmingly; as I may have stated here before, my higher power is the unavoidable randomness of the Universe. But along with the chaos and randomness come the vastly infinite possibilities of what could happen - hope. I'm falling back in love with the world, and this time, with me in it.

I'm going to disappear for a while. I've been contemplating it for nearly two weeks. I'll still meet people every so often, but I desperately need to be alone a while. Thinking gets to difficult around people.

I just wish people could understand this. I've been this way for years. Sometimes, I just need to recede away from the people in my life, at least slightly, to feel whole again. I may be a social creature, but being around people...even talking to them too often and for too long, especially when I'm in a state such as this, makes me feel like I am breaking apart. I hardly know who I am or who I...should be. Everything I see and hear is tainted by the expectations of others, be they real or simply perceived. Matt understood. But he was also what a lot of people call a "shitty friend". It was different with him, because he was unrelenting in his silence and unapologetic upon reemergence. Maybe I'm making excuses for myself. I don't know. I'm tired. Too tired. I'm tired of people trying to be understanding and helpful, but utterly forgetting that I am simply not like them. In too many ways. I need to go away to fall back in love with myself.

 Today's been a good day, overall.

I'm too tired to write more, but I wanted to post to make sure I could look back and remember, "June 4th was a good day," when I got sad again.

The world is quite a nice place.

lord, grant me the courage to end my life
i pray to a nonexistent god
i couldn't end my life
i couldn't end my life
i fear the end
so i pray to a god
incognito
lord, elevate me
so
elegantly
to empyrean, eternal
i fear what the end could be
lord, leave me love
lord, leave me luck
grant me the serenity to not give a fuck
my body defeats me
my mind betrays me
my reality has become
nothing
but corners
the purpose of a finger
the purpose-driven life
lord, figment of my half-hearted hope
grant me the will
ambition
strength
to stop

i read a fuckin silly review of the newest arcade fire album, Neon Bible, at rolling stone's website. it was such a stupid review i actually considered joining their website just to yell at them.

Rolling Stone is the Guitar Center of magazines.

"good morning, passengers. it is currently 7:30 AM, with clear skies. THIRTY-TWO DEGREES"

so lately i've been noticing that i'm a pretentious asshole, and i'm trying to fix that.

the end.

EDIT

i've lost three more pounds and i'm starting to wonder if i've got a flesh eating virus.
the funny part is, i'm starting to think it's because i sleep too late to wake up in time for breakfast. and sometimes lunch. this reminds me of the Valley of the Dolls.

whoohoo, i finished a short story.

after trying to tackle the nanowrimo thing, i decided i had started to late and it was time to realize my limits. so i decided i'd pick apart the general idea for the novel and turn it into a series of short stories. maybe i'll find a way to connect them, maybe i won't, maybe i'll just put them together and call it a novel. who cares.

i'm actually proud of my story. i think it's cute.

poem

With the passion and faith
of a suicide bomber,
I will eliminate you before myself.
You, backwash of our society's quota;
picking up the best leftovers
before I can get to them.

Fucking failure-
Bastard shipwreck of the traffic lanes,
singing your siren's song.
Radiating emaciation,
embracing the least deserving.
Wiping my spit from your brow.

I jump off the tallest building
of the windiest city
in the largest province of the richest country
everyday just to spite myself.
And you, and you, and you, and all of you.

You are still just an abortion
expelled from the uterus
of one nation, under god.
A story without a name,
a statistic without a story,
created only to masturbate my ego.

another poem

I'm pregnant with my shit-eating grin,
carrying every putrid thought
that ever grazed the filthy gutters.
Gutters overstepped by every media darling
and fictional character.

Beloved people without character.
Who love holidays, kiss babies, hold hands.

They make love,
wearing a shit-eating grin
as a prophylactic-
Though they know that love
is just a defense mechanism,
mechanizing armies against
so-called unhappiness.

i wrote a short story about some guy that wakes up as a mallard duck. but it's stupid. and it isn't good enough for me to show people. maybe one day i'll extend it into something else.

i've never been good with camp writing.
