Sister Saviour


Begin Transmission of entry:

So, I get a call on Saturday from the school of mines (the college I go to), saying that I have a substantial refund check from my student aid awaiting me. I didn't think too much of it, other than it was going to be great to have some extra cash around this evil time of the year (giftma$$). Well, yesterday I took a nice lil jaunt down to the school to pick it up. I grab it, turn around start walking and look down at the check. $3,212.38....I about crapped myself, and I thought it might have been a mistake. It wasnt.

I walked home in complete shock, and laughing hysterically at random moments on the street, allowing people to think I was insane. Maybe I am. I decided that at least 500 should go for my trip to Canada, so that was that. Then I decided, "hey I really need a car". So I checked on the local newspaper's website for classifieds, and found exactly what I was looking for. A 1990 honda civic dx for 800 bucks. I jumped on my bike rolled down to the bank, and said, " I want this crazy amount of cash". They performed, and I had this bulge of money in my pocket. I felt like I owned Rapid City.

I rode my bike down to the house that was selling the civic, and I saw it. I wanted it, instantly. It has some pretty bad body issues, but I didn't give a crud
what it looked like aesthetically, I just wanted to test it out. The lady was pretty cool, and she let me drive it around the block. It was everything I expected a civic to be. Nice. I bought it. I own a car now....this is messed up.

Now I have all this extra money, that I dont know what to do with, but I think it would be wise to put some of it towards my loan, if not a grand or so. Im still not sure why I am getting so much money back, but I am registered for classes next semester, and everything is already paid for. This is a crazy time for me, the most money I have ever had in my possesion has been 800 dollars, and now it seems like nothing compared to this.

Money is the root to all evil, I agree, but man, it feels so good right now.

It makes me bleed to know.


I have two finals tomorrow, and I think my biology test has me so nerve racked that I don't even want to study for it. I hate that class with a passion, and I have to pull a C on the test to pass. Luckily for me, the test is on one of the toughest parts of the course yet. Ughh...

So, as the year is winding down, I realized I should make a top ten albums list. I think I will do that in the next entry.

On the other hand, I've found yet another group that I a thouroughly enjoying, who is known as Aerogramme. I really can't describe their sound, but its neat, and I think indie kids, shoegazer kids, hardcore kids, emo kids, and everything in between would enjoy. Very dynamic music, and I would recomend that you check them out.

Back to save the earth again.

What it is to be's the little things.

I made the sharp realization today that I have written pure nonsense in my journal as of late. I am pretty sure I do that just to remind myself that the funny things in life make online journals worthwhile. On the other hand, I am quite sure that anything else that I could write about will be uninteresting to me at a later date, or for you the reader. Suffice to say, I am going to commence with a normal entry:

Well, the serious fundrasing for my trip to Canada is well underway. I've begun to make money by selling old games on ebay. Did you know that bust-a-groove for Playstation 1 goes for 60 bucks? It's really crazy what you can find in pawn shops and clearance bins. All profit will go towards the Canada fund, and I take back whatever I spend for the game initially and buy more games. It really is a wonderful cycle.
I missed the Okerville river show tonight, and although I wanted to go, I'm not exactly dissapointed that I didn't. I just wish I was in the same situation that rob is in, where great music comes his way on a weekly basis. He is very deserving of the opportunity, so I hope he is having a great time.
The fact that the semester is nearing an end really hasn't settled in yet. Why does it seem as though a High School semester was infinitely longer than a college one? I'm really not having a better time so to speak, but I feel much less stressed now that I am here and not there. Oddly enough, I don't even stress out about grades anymore. I think I am just waiting for some cataclysmic event to change everything, and until then, its just a grey zone.
Maybe it is just me, but does anyone else notice how non-holiday it feels right now? I'm usually at a rage with people at this point of the year, but for once it's as if everyone feels the same way. No one wants to give gifts this time of year, and frankly, a fruit cake would kick ass. I've never eaten fruitcake, and I honestly do want to try it. No one ever buys them anymore, and if you do, you are breaking the human ethos by doing so. Fuck, I'll eat your damn fruitcake.

Some band suggestions to close the entry: Broken Social Scene, The Swords Project, Swayzak, Set fire to flames, Hangedup, Menomena, Blackpool, and Junetile.
They have all kept me quite peaceful this last month. Other things for you to check out:
porn, selling video games, shocking yourself with an oven and a fork, cleaning mud off of everything you wear, and books. (get it? books, check em out? I really am a comic mastermind)
