2009 personal

the greatest of expectations

things I learned this week:

  • redundancy sucks
  • actually, it’s not quite so bad as all that, it at least forces you forward and out of comfy complacency
  • people don’t understand light hearted jokes about unemployment.
  • punk rock really does make everything significantly better.
  • I’m a little bit over regular office hours.

I’m trying to view this whole situation as crazy positive. I think it will be. I suck at leaving situations that aren’t what I really want, but are liveable.

Every six months or so, we welcome an eclipse period (at least one solar and one lunar eclipse within a few-weeks’ span)… to rapidly flip pages in our life-stories with climactic developments and events that move the action along in a dramatic fashion. For those couple weeks on either side of an eclipse, it’s as if we’re becoming ‘unstuck’ by larger currents pushing us emphatically into the future.

See! It’s the planets, dudes. The eclipse on monday is Jupiter in Aquarius, so there’s gonna be a load of growing and explanding and transcending going down. (astrobarry is my king!) I looked up a bunch more stuff about what’s happening Universe wise in the next few months and it seems as though all of this is supposed to happen. So hurrah (ish) (oh yeah, Mercury retro had best stop fucking with my phone – grr)

You can laugh, but being a crazy hippie has ensured I haven’t had a full on melt down about what the fuck I’m going to do with everything being all change-y around me.

Since this was a bit of a weird post, I’ve decided to end it with one of my all time favourite music videos. Swoon over one Calvin Johnson in his youth while tapping your foot to the best Beat Happening tune ever.

Oddly hopeful, eclipse day passed without any huge incidents, we’ll see whether the lunar eclipse in virgo in a couple of weeks passes as smoothly…

Went to doctor and felt better about life, met robyn and lizzy, went for lunch, went into town and spent time at shops full of ridiculously priced clothes and ranted about punk and art for a while.

We were planning a big girlie night, but we were all knackered from walking around all day. So we started watching Blade, then they fell asleep and I decided to have a bath, at 10pm on a friday. Rock and fucking Roll.

Since I already spent too much money on hair colour and lush products today, I decided to make it all better by ordering some stuff from the lucero merch site. go me. Oh, and some guy told me Cory Branan might be playing the UK in a couple months.

Recently things have been making me feel weird and twisty inside, but in a good way. 2 days til Breaking Dawn, and 24 til Gaslight Anthem, this is when summer starts to get good.
