A brief explanation of the title, Sepiated Spirals - スト-カ-...

    We carry notebooks everywhere in our college lives, with often a different one for each class, so the simple act of writing down our thoughts at the turn of a fresh page is always available.

    Altogether, biology, English, math, come together into a myriad of experiences and ideas throughout the day.

    Old ideas combine with new, and we learn from our sepia-toned past.

Archives, Vol. II

More hits on the counter; pretty awesome!

I'm here to relay another tidbit of history from my old blog. This entry was in one of my downtimes (I seemed to have a lot of those...) in which I wrote a poem. When it comes to writing, I don't really like to do it, but now and then something just comes to me, and it's pretty surprising to show myself what I'm capable of. Here's hoping you like the poem, Long Forgotten.

Long Forgotten
J. L. Stoker

Gone are the days when the summers were fun,
When in night the shadows were shallow and none.

Anymore it's not like that. Can't you see?
The dreams have vanished of friends that would be.

They sit, now, apart, not thinking of friends,
But now of times that have come to an end.

"United we stand," yet we're all sitting down.
We show no emotion, just a frown.

I just wish we could all stand up once more,
And tell all the frowns, "That's what friends are for."

I didn't post this because I'm feeling down now. If anything, I'm feeling much better, and hopeful that I can tap into that strangely evading Source and write more things like this in the future.

I'm sure you can probably relate to it; I wrote it that night just for that reason.
Maybe it reminds you of an old friend that just kind of dissolved away in hectic times, or something else only you personally would understand.

All-in-all, I hope you enjoyed this second flashback :)

Archives, Vol. I

I found something pretty interesting today while browsing around. I went to my old Windows Live Spaces blog, and realized I had a lot of cool blog entries.
I think it's due for a trip down memory lane.
--Realize I wouldn't be doing this if I didn't see how many people read my blog. I figure those who didn't see the old blog's entries might want to see some of my favorites.--

This entry is one from around Christmas two years ago. Enjoy, eh?

Funny stuff for the month

hehehehhehehhe ok we just put up our new tree (i'll add a pic of it here) and my mom was vaccuming up the little extra ''pine needles'' (fake tree). there was a piece of paper on the ground next to me, and the vaccum was blaring in my ear. "will you pick that paper up?" she asked. "WHAT??" I yelled back, even though i could hear her just fine. she repeated it, and again i yelled back, a little louder the second time. then i casually looked down and said "Oh hey, let me move that paper for you." hahaha i had my brother and me laughing.........good times. well marry krismiss if i dont write about blizzard or anything later on in the month. sayonara


I didn't realize I had that kind of humor in me, hehe. This entry surprised me a bit. Anyway, this is the first of many, and I'll post more old entries more often. Thanks for reading, and comment if you can! It would be much appreciated.

Have a good one!

Hit counter of amazingness!

Some of you may have seen the hit counter at the top of my page. I happen to not be able to see the cool numbers there, but when I click on the "Who's been here?" link, I can see a whole bunch of stats. I had 20+ hits today! It's great! Thanks.

For those of you who are coming here for the first time since getting my message, this isn't the new post. You want the one below this post.

Again, thanks for at least taking the time to visit, whether you leave a comment or not. I guess you need a Google account to comment, so some can't do much. But, I dunno....go make an account and a blog. It's something to do, and it's kinda fun.

Bed time....Keep reading, and I'll keep writing!

Interesting times

It's been a long while since I last updated this. Lots has happened; some things I might go into, others I'll keep to myself because a public blog isn't the place for it.

Not too long before the 4th, I was convinced to be a part of the city's musical, Brigadoon. I'm a dancer in it, plus random filler and whatnot throughout it. So far, it's been really fun -- it distracts me from other matters after a long day, and I welcome anything that will raise my spirits these days. We're set to perform (and hopefully perform well) August 15, 16, & 18 at 7:00, with a 2:00 performance on the 16th. Four shows total. Four new experiences for me. Yes, this happens to be the first thing I've done involving singing, dancing, and theater all rolled into one.

Brigadoon won't be my last, though. As in my earlier blogs, I'll be in Macbeth too. Word is finally going around that practice will start in the first week of August. I seriously can't wait. This summer has dragged on too long. Too much drama, too many bored days, and too much brain-deterioration. I gotta do something "intelligent" before I snap! I haven't had a talk with smart people about smart stuff in too long a time. So someone, anyone: talk to me. Tell me about that cool new gadget you found surfing around online one day, or about how you think a plant perceives time. Sure, being fun and crazy at a party is fun, but after two months of that, you'd get bored. Nearly anyone would. So please, let's talk and have a different kind of fun for a change...

..Well, the 4th was awesome, as always. The fireworks were great. It always gets me when I think that a bunch of flammable chemicals packed into a 3- to 7-inch ball can be shot into the air to explode above our heads with a massive concussive blast, just for pure enjoyment.
But, that feeling lasted for just that one day. The week leading up to it, and the few days after the 4th, felt like the longest in my life. Mark down one thing I won't say more about here, for the sake of many people.

So anyway, I've been sitting here doing other things while wondering what to say here, and can't think of anything. I'll try to remember other things and post em.

Until later,
