Writer's Block: Lazing on a Sunday afternoon
What's your favorite thing to do on a lazy Sunday?

This site is very off.. the third of January is a Monday.

Writer's Block: Conversation starters
Are there any subjects you either embrace or totally avoid talking about when you meet someone new?

When I meet someone new, I absolutely love to talk about music.  I feel that the type of music a person listens to really tells a lot about their personality.  Also, I just love to share music and learn about new bands.
When I meed someone new, I should probably avoid talking about religion and politics, though I'm not sure I always do.  I can be very opinionated in these topics, and I'd never want to offend someone while in a rant.
Especially with religion.

Writer's Block: No more knock-knock jokes!
What's the most embarrassing thing your parents ever said or did in front of you, in public?

Thankfully they don't do it too often.. But just occasionally..
My mom REALLY likes to talk "for" me "about" me, but then says things that don't descibe me to the other person.  She tells them I act one way when I don't, that I like one thing when I don't, then those people ask me about t it.
My mom also likes to tell everyone about her life, including total strangers, and my friends, which can get super embarassing when she starts to talk about God or about money problems.
My dad?  Really trying to think of some things.. I mean I see him as super cool, so even when he does do things that should  be embarassing, they're just not.  I usually just find them funny.

Concerts (and my not-so-intresting week.)

My weeks and days feel longer now than ever. 
I find it strange.. people say time seems to go by faster the older you get, which absolutly appied to be not too long ago, but now, just one of my days seems like at least two to me. 
Monday was quite the same as usual, though there was no school for me, which was great.  But I still had work.
Tuesday, school, and a boring day.  There was more to it, but I hardly remeber now.
Wednesday was the highlight of my week, so I'll leave that one for last.  It will also kickstart my thoughts on concerts.
Thursday, was pretty strange.. I had a life drawing class from after school until about six o'clock.  Once I got home, I tried to start my homework, but it was impossible to concentrate considering my exhaustion after the concert the night before.  I fell asleep while working on my sketchbook assignment for art class (to draw five pieces of jewlery on a piece of cloth) on the couch.  When my mom came home, I startled awake, but then chilled, realizing it was just her, and fell back asleep.  A bit later, I startled awake again, forgetting that she had been home, and freaked again, but then chilled again.  This happened about two more times, but then I continued to sleep after she left again.  She went to go pick up my brother from the bus station in the city (he's visiting this weekend!); he texted me a bit later to tell me they were almost home.  I recieved the text, then went back to sleep again on the couch.
When they actually got home, I startled awake a final time when my brother got in the door; then he proceded to throw is sweatshirt towards me (no harm intended, he's awsome), and I screamed.  All I saw was some dude barging into my house, then a black shape flying at my head.  Went to bed at 3am that night.
Then today, Friday.  Same boring stuff.  Then work.  Two of my best friends hung out for a bit where I work- that was fun. 

Anyway, back to Wednesday.
Thermals concert.
Opening bands were So Cow and Twin Shadow.
The venue was Irving Plaza.
It was truely amazing. 
First of all, The Thermals are one of my favorite bands.  Then, for the opening bands to be so great just made it ten times better.  So Cow was awesome. 
Irving Plaza is my favorite venue so far that I've been to, but what do I know?  To be honest it's the only one I've been to besides Radio City Music Hall and Jones Beach stadium (if that last one even counts.)  Everyone was packed together at Irving Plaza, all screaming the lyrics to the songs, jumping around, dancing, pure, sheer happiness and soul.  Live music is incredible; it's one of the few ways you can actually see a person's true soul; that's the way you can tell whether a musician makes music for money or for the look, or if it's really about the music for them.
All those people gathered together, never having met before, but all united by the same thing: they all love the music, and do it for the music.  You can really be yourself at a concert: break loose, jump around like crazy, scream shout and dance, and no one will judge you, because everyone else is doing the same.  And so what if they judge you?  Screw them.  You're happy, you're free.
It's really just magic.

The only other concerts I've been to:
-The Winterpills with KaiserCartel at a chuch (that's another story..)
-MGMT with Francis and the Lights at Radio City Music Hall.

I always gain such higher appreciation for a band after seeing them live.

By the end of the concert, I'd gotten a So Cow shirt, a Thermals tee (the one I'm wearing now), two Thermals buttons, and a Thermals poster.  My best friend who came along got a So Cow shirt, and my dad got the latest Thermals cd.  For anyone who reads this and doesn't listen to the Thermals, listen to them.  If you do listen to them, friend me, because I truely love you.

Writer's Block: Fly me to the moon
Do you think space exploration is important? Is it worth the billions our governments spend?

Hard to say.
I think space exploration is very interesting, if not important.  Some ways in which it could be important include new discoveries, possibly finding new life, and possible new setteling grounds for human beings to live on. 
Maybe it's not worth the billions our government spends on it, but in order to keep up with other nations also involved in space travel and exploration, it must be continued. 

Writer's Block: She's a brainiac on the floor
Would you rather be super-rich or super-smart if you would only be average in the other category?

As shallow as it is, I would choose super rich over super smart.  With that, I really wouldn't have many problems.  Bills would be paid, I would have all the things I wanted, I could dedicate all my time to writing (sense I wouldn't need to work), and I could travel, which I have always wanted to do.  I would also be able to easily help my friends and family with their struggles, or even just buy them nice things, just for the hell of it.  I could travel with them, and PAY for them, and not have to worry about the expenses. 
I would even be able to donate money, which I would absolutely do, top priority. 
Animal shelters
Cancer research
World hunger,
among others.

Writer's Block: Living the dream
What is your ultimate dream job? Do you think you'll ever live the dream?

My ultimate dream job is to be a journalist in New York City, and a fiction author.  I would more specifically love to write about music, or fashion, two topics that interest me most.  I used to want to be a fashion designer, but I'm not so sure how far I would get with that.

Writer's Block: No bloody way
Could you ever be good friends with someone who hunted purely for sport?

Definetly not, and I would try to discourage them from it, too.
Hunting is absoloutly disgusting.  If murder is illegal, that should be too -animal lives are just as important as human lives.

Writer's Block: Love or be loved?
Do you think a romantic relationship can ever be equal or will one partner always love and/or compromise more than the other? Given the choice, would you rather be the one who loves more or is loved more?

I think it can be equal.  I think that's the only way a relationship can work. 
As selfish as it is, I would prefer to be the one who is loved more, because otherwise, I would go insane, and find it hard to love them as easily back again.  I overthink thinks much too often.
