I'm alone.

It’s everything you don’t say and everything you don’t do that hurts me the most. It’s how I think of how you used to sound so happy when you answered the phone or saw me in the mornings. It’s like you are drained of love and no more can come out. It hurts me the most when I think of what our relationship used to be. And when I see another relationship status on facebook changed to “single,” I cringe because I worry that that will be me next. And I don’t want it to be. I never want it to end up that way. I love you more than I ever thought I could love you or anyone. I can’t ever see myself not loving you. I trust you more than anyone else. I’m so attached to you that tearing my mind from you and what we have would destroy my being. Ever since the conversation we had in the auditorium lobby, your words of a “dead end relationship” ring in my head and have made me sick, and ever since then I have fluctuated between feeling normal and hollow. I tell myself that it’s just hormonal, or I am overreacting. In a way, the reason for these emotional swings doesn’t matter. The truth is, I am miserable not knowing what goes on inside your head. I don’t ever want to lose you. You are the best thing that has ever happened to me. Please don’t leave me.

I'm in so much pain. I cant stop crying. I cant hold it in. I hate this. I hate this. I hate this. My world is tinged with salt and my vission is impared. I HATE THIS. I feel alone for the first time in so long. I feel empty and hated and stupid and nieve. I feel rejected and hurt and dead and depressed. I....I don't know.

Remember when...
This song and all of what has been going on in my head lately has put me in a peculiar mood. It's Thanksgiving. To what do I give thanks? I'm not sure. Lately I've been wishing for something more or for something to be different. Specifically, I wish my family were more "normal," more "fun," and more "real." Thanksgiving today consisted of me and my parents. We didn't go to Wisconsin to see the few others in my family; we stayed here in Iowa, where the weather has finally (and unfortunately) caught up with the season). I find myself wondering what my life would have been like if I had a sibling. Would holidays be bustling, merry events? Would I hate having a sibling? Would I confide in him or her? Would I side with him or her when mom seizes control? When dad is weirding us out? In a sense, I'm alone in this. Friends don't understand just how weird my dad can be, or how much my mom can upset me. Whether my parents are really this extreme or not (or it's just me), I wish I had someone I could share this with and not have them judge me (or if they judge me, they are in the place to judge me because they're in the same situation as I).

Change of topic. My dear friend Nikki. This is something I have dwelt on much in the first trimester of this school year. I guess it even extends back into the summer. I feel like we have a disconnect now. She's always busy. She works two jobs: one that takes up her entire weekend (save for homework time) and the other on weeknights. She volunteers. She takes 5 AP classes. It's like she doesn't exist. About two months ago she said she really wanted to see A Bug's Life. I own it so I asked if she wanted to come over and watch it with me on a weekend. She said maybe over Thanksgiving or Winter Break. Maybe it's just me, but I think it's sad when someone is so busy that their only free time is over a break, especially when that someone is in their senior year of high school. Aren't we supposed to remember this time fondly? This year I have grown closer to those in my tiny group of friends that I wasn't close with before this year: Molly and Sophie. I guess they understand that this year might be the last time we all see each other before college. Even Ella, my friend of 14+ years, who is taking four AP classes and one college class, and works two jobs as well (sorta) I see more often than Nikki. Ella makes time for fun. She's found a balance. I'm proud of her for it. What has annoyed me the most about Nikki lately is how she decided not to go on "Sophs Amazing Non-School-Sanctioned Spring Break Trip." The point of this trip was to have "A last hurrah" before we go our separate ways. I feel like we're growing apart, and I feel like she's not even trying.

I can't judge. I know. But it hurts. I'm hurt. I'm hurt knowing that if I had something important to tell her, I wouldn't be able to call her or run over to her house. I'd have to schedule an appointment over the next break and wait in line as I work around her two jobs and volunteering. I'm hurt. What if Jacob and I had a fight (not likely at all)? I don't even feel like I could tell her anything at all pertaining to him. I feel like she wouldn't understand. She doesn't have a boyfriend; she never has. I'm judging again. But if I needed advice on anything. I don't think I could turn to her anymore. We've both changed. I hope we can grow back together, because if something doesn't come up last minute (like it often has) we're going Christmas shopping the day after black friday. I hope so much that she doesn't have to change plans. I'm hurt. And I miss her.

Wishhhhhhhhhh wish wish wish wish!
Oh yes, this is my christmas list. I will probably end up either not getting these, or if I do, I'll be the one paying for them.

To start with, I want a cape. A (preferably) black, wool-ish, swingy winter cape.

This one is knit:

This one is expensive:

This one is about right, but not perfect:

Next order of business, my dearest Alexander McQueen skull ring. Sigh:

I want boots too. I am desperately looking for the perfect pair of sleek, flat, over the knee, black boots. These are the closest I have found:

Umm... that's all for now. =D

Dear Sunday Night, please dont let it become Monday. Love, Erin

Take this survey

I have a few things to share with you, my old friend.
I will start by listing them off, because otherwise, I might take so long describing one of them that I'll forget the others.

1. What Teo said
2. Plans for the future
3. Homecoming weekend
4. Boyfriend update =)

1. Teo and I have had a rocky time this summer. It was almost like we were growing appart while very durable strings held us together. I remember having a hard time reading him. He's my friend, my psyco internet brother. But this summer went between late nights of silly, casual talking to times where I was so busy that I didn't have time to text him a lot or facebook chat with him. His reaction to my accidental neglect made me feel like a terrible friend. He would jokingly accuse me of avoiding him, or when I would find time to talk to him, he would say how kind I was to lower myself to talk to him. He always is sarcastic, and I cant always tell what to take seriously, so when I heard him say these things, I was unsure of how to take it. So I played along like it was all fun and games.

When I was in New York City, right before school started, I was making attempts to talk to him without getting a "hmph" for a reply when I asked him why he hated me. He replied with someting like "Erin, I have been deeply in love with you ever since I knew you as Head Full of Words." I wish I would have saved the text, but I think it was close to that. My reply was somewhat of a joke, because I knew there was no way it could be serious. Then we didn't talk for a while again. I dont like it when we dont talk. I'm busy. He's busy. But when he got a girlfriend, I couldn't be happier, because he was completely over his head in joy. And it was great to see him so happy (and they're still together, so I guess I can say that I'm STILL happy that he's STILL so happy). But the big moment that caught me off guard was when he was completely genuine with me. Out of the blue, at one in the morning on saturday (yesterday) I got this text: "I love you, nooblet. Even tho ive never met u. Ur a good friend. im sorry if ive ever made u feel otherwise." It made me want to cry. This is partially because I still cant figure him or this message out. I feel like there is some underlying sorrow and I wonder if I've ever hurt him or dissapointed him. There was a story he wrote on mibba called "To E-" and it was a letter addressed to a friend who'd let him down. As I read it, I was shaking, trying to figure out if it was about me. Maybe it was. But he mentioned something about school, so I hoped it was about some other friend whose name starts with E. I do miss him, though.

2. In my mind, I have created the ideal future for myself. I want to major in music. I've known that for a while, but I often doubt myself and what I'll actually do with a music degree (and I KNOW I dont want to teach), but I think of advertisements and composition. So in my beautiful fantasy, I'll get my degree in music from the U of I, then get a masters in popular music composition from some big name school (hint: USC), work really really hard and make a living living in some large, cultured city (LA, Chicago, NYC). It will combine two great things, my love of music, and not living in a cardboard box. YAY.

3. This weekend was homecoming, and it was such a great weekend (and week too)!!! The week's spirit days were comfy day (yay ugg slippers and yoga pants!), yellow day (Something or other for the volleyball team. I thought it was a kind of lame spirit day. I didn't do it...), HARRY POTTER DAY (this was the best, THE BEST spirit day in the history of spirit days. I was a Hermione-esque character. I wore black tights and flats, my grey J crew wool skirt, a white blouse with my dads tie, and a grey cardigan with a Griffindor felt badge my mom made for me when I was Hermione in elementary school.), class color day (WHOOOOO SENIORS! I wore black from head to toe, of course. black flats, black skirt, black sparkly leotard, black moto jacket =D), and green and gold day on friday.

I went to the game that night, of course I had to work (even though I took the night off) so Sophie picked me up and took me to the game. We met Garrett there (so a little awkwardness ensued while they sat cuddling on the hillside) and then I ran down to the fence to see Jacob (in the rest of the tuba section...hehe) and talk to him while the game went on and WEST WAS ON FIRE. either that or the other team really sucked. At half time we were up 24 to 3. Yeah. Go us. So Sophie, Garrett, Kate, Ella, Zebby, Jacob and I all went to Daines Dairy. It was rediculously fun and full of manic, awkward laughter (threesome!)

Saturday was homecoming dance. My ensemble included the strapless BCBG cream dress my mom and I found at the final cut store in LA for $40, my lovely J Crew suede bootie platforms, and the little bon bon hat from Henri Bendel in NYC. (I cant wait to wear the boots and hat to school!!!) Before the dance we met at Sophie's house, then went to Mondo's for dinner. Our little group consisted of Soph, Garrett, Nikki, Amanda, Amir, Megan, Jacob and me. The DJ was pretty good this year. But it could just be that I know the songs so I enjoyed it more. Okey was crowned homecoming king, but Rachel didn't win queen. Neither did Emily. Erin did. I guess it's all right, but I wanted Rachel to win a lot. She's such a genuine person, but popularity trumps that any day.

soooooooooooooo TRANSITION!

4. After the dance: I went back to Jacob's house (where his mom fawned over my hat again). I changed into jeans and stuff (so did Jacob) and once we were safely in the basement and we thought his parents were in bed......cuddling! YAY! buttt it turned out better than ever. A few weeks ago we took the step in our relationship of hands up shirts and things like that (nothing naughty). This time, shirts came off, and it was the most incredible experience my little teenage body has had. sigh. =)

The end.

I miss writing all the time in this thing.

I'll try to make it a better habit.



"Rapture is found at the threshold where outer meets inner."

I am in love with Jacob. It is so unbelievable, and so incredibly hard to explain. I enjoy myself so much when I'm around him. He makes me feel beyond beautiful and special and wanted. He loves me too. We've been together for seven months. It's fairly monumental. Of course six months was bigger. It's a whole half year. He brought me roses. I pressed the petals. They still are fregrant. I love Jacob. I love Jacob! I LOVE JACOB!!! That's what my mind screams nearly twenty-four/seven.

Life is bliss.

I enjoy this:
"What is this feeling? What is this feeling that can destroy empires and move mountains? What is this feeling that can cause incredible joy and terrible sorrow? What is this feeling that can turn someone's world upside-down or straighten it out? In brief: What is love?"

I am such a creeper. On Gmail, there's a little box-y thing where you can put a "status" like thing and this was Tristan's just now. I really don't know him well; I've just been partnered with him for projects, resulting in the exchange of email addresses.... =P

I have school tomorrow. POOOOOOOOO =( Day 3 of school. I WILL SURVIVE!!
