Jan 31 Delay/Max Levine Ensemble/Good Luck @ Legion of Doom
And thats how you spend a paid month off. In between those things I want to organize our shit in the basement and get rid of the shit we don’t need and maybe squeeze in a trip to Chicago to go visit the school I’m going to.
jan 13th- YES. (anyone from Athens going?)
jan 31st- Max Levine Ensemble+ Delay will be in Athens the 30th so probably just going to that one BUT Good Luck will be there on the 31st, so if I can find a ride, maybe both.

i will probably not write this post the way i’d like to write it. a four hour shift at work completely drained me. i’m pretty sure i’m dead.
today the most depressing thing happened to me.
this woman walked in the store. she had curly hair. she was wearing a christmas sweater. she was probably in her late 50s or early 60s. i figured she was in the store shopping for a niece or a granddaughter, because customers are so easily categorized by age group.
she handed me a job application and said “i hope i filled it out right.” i remember her exact words because they made me feel so terrible.
after she left, i read her job application. i don’t know if i’m not supposed to, but i did. she hasn’t had a job since 2008. she worked for a major chain store for more than 10 years and was earning $18 an hour when her employment with them ended. i started creating this really sad story in my head about how she probably got laid off because they couldn’t afford to keep people in at that pay rate. i don’t think my boss makes that much.
at her age, do you think it’s humiliating to ask for job applications and then return them to people less than half your age?
maybe i think too much, but the whole thing made me want to cry.
i cried just reading this. ugh. it’s horrible out there. i feel so bad for her and my mind is making up all the reasons why she needs more money like sick family members or kids in college. my mom just went back to school last year so she could get her RN because she was an LPN and a major reason was that she has now worked at that place for 20 years (and gets paid well) but they could easily fire her and hire someone new and pay them half as much to do the same job. in the same vein once a place starts paying more to someone due to years of service if they don’t continue to work their way up they will never be able to leave because they will not be able to find the same pay at a comparable job somewhere else. our system is so fucked.
“It could be a virus and it will infect you and you will all die like that Legend movie, and I’ll be the only one left, well along with all the really poor people who couldn’t afford it.”—My 13-year-old sister on why she does not want the H1N1 vaccine.
now i do as i please and i lie through my teeth. someone might get hurt but it won’t be me. i should probably feel cheap, but i just feel free and a little bit empty. no, it isn’t so hard to get close to me. there’ll be no arguments, we’ll always agree. and i’ll try to be kind when i ask you to leave. we’ll both take it easy.
I’m buying this because Lady Gaga said it was her favorite book. She also has a tattoo on her left arm that is a quote from here in german that says: “‘In the deepest hour of the night, confess to yourself that you would die if you were forbidden to write. And look deep into your heart where it spreads its roots, the answer, and ask yourself, must I write?”
After my research I have decided I really really love Lady Gaga.
