2:59 pm - Thanks, guys.
It never ceases to amaze me that the gothic community professes to be incredibly accepting and open-minded and yet is staunchly close-minded toward Christians. It has gotten to the point where I dread someone discovering my religion because I will immediately be regarded as mentally deficient. I never mention my beliefs because as soon as they're discovered, I'm attacked.

I don't push my religion on others, I don't judge anyone. I never even mention it unless someone asks where I went for my undergrad, and even then I try to skirt around the name and location. I just want to be left to do what I believe without being ridiculed for it. It's both infuriating and saddening that the people with whom I have the most in common refuse to accept me.

I literally had someone from the scene ask me on a date on Saturday then cancel it after he discovered my religion.

It makes me feel really, really alone.

9:56 am - Might be the longest entry ever...
I got back from New York last night after three rescheduled connecting flights (was supposed to get home around 6, but I got home around 9). NY is the most amazing place on earth. There's just no other city that has its vibrancy. It has its own personality, its own quirks and strengths. So, with that said, let me take you on a magical mystery tour through the last week. Oh yes, there will be pictures.

Day 5Collapse )

Day 6Collapse )
For more mayhem and proof that I'm a tard, visit Ian's journal.

It was a lovely, memorable week. I have some very difficult decisions to make regarding the upcoming year, but such is life. Ian and New York were both spectacular hosts.

5:01 pm - I have taken over.
This is Gary. I now have control over this blog. I will soon have control over yours too. My friends and I welcome you all to join The Church of the Subgenius. Our leader Bob is always accepting new applicants. If you have problems with severe experimental drug use and adventures down the rabbit hole then we would advise you to look into other religious organizations such as The Church of Satan of The Cult of the Psychic Fetus. Also, please remember, that Heaven's Gate is always an option for eternal bliss. You just need to own a pair of all white sneakers and a purple sheet. My visual time as now reached it's termination. Thank you for your time and $$$.

So my family has a little tradition of watching "Gilmore Girls" because we're Mormon and retarded like that. Anyway, the last episode, Rory Gilmore received a Birkin purse from her boyfriend and my mom went "Whoa!" and everyone on the TV show went "Whoa!" and I went "What's a Birkin bag....?" So I did a little research.
Let me tell you what a Birkin bag is:

It is $20,000 down the drain.

Yes. Twenty thousand dollars for a purse. Is this bag worth $20,000? Let me remind you, I could buy a car for that. I could put a downpayment on a condo in Los Angeles with that. I could bribe my way into USC or hire a personal black sex slave. What the hell is wrong with people?

One of the things I miss the most is citrus. For some reason, I'm not allowed to have any sort of citric anything and tonight I made the mistake of ordering the "Orange Dream Machine" at Jamba Juice. Needless to say, it came back up very quickly. Such sacrifices for beauty.

As long as we're making fun of Mormon culture, my friend roseredhoofbeat said this tonight:

"do mormon boys come with balls, or do you have to bring your own?"

hahahaha.... the question we've all been wondering, dahling.

10:28 pm - NOOOOOOOOO
My friend Meg (upon announcement of our friend Karin's engagement... another one bites the dust) informed me that there are such things as food storage showers. This means the guests, instead of bringing anything normal, bring a contribution to the bride and groom's future food storage.

This is why Mormonism is a social disease. I'm not even joking.

Two people have now tagged me for that "20 random things about yourself" thing, so now I'm obligated to do it or the heavens will unleash their magical forces of urine against me. This is going to be tough...

I'm secretly a prostitute in DenmarkCollapse )

It's almost 4am and I can't get any sleep. This is starting to become a weird sort of routine; I go to bed, can't fall asleep, go downstairs and watch television, realize that NOTHING is on tv at 4 in the morning besides infomercials on amazing ladders, come back upstairs, go on the computer, and sit here forlornly because everyone else is asleep (how dare they?!). And why is there a Britney Spears commercial on my AOL Instant Messenger? Talk about adding insult to injury...

asathena is making me update this.
I don't even really have anything to say, besides that I've lost about 30 pounds now and I'm trying to get over a cold.

Oh, and why the bloody hell have I never had a relationship? All I'm asking for is a man who believes in some sort of God, has a lot of tattoos, is attractive, has good taste in music, has his own style of fashion, wants a family, has motivation (in regards to a job and that doesn't count being a "musician" because, frankly, your band sucks and no one's going to buy those handmade cds, no matter how quaint you think they are), and likes me more than anyone else. It's not a lot to ask.

Dear Professor Fox,
I have been taking your English 495 class through Independent Study and have some serious concerns about the course. Firstly, the book is the most confusing, convoluted, non-student-friendly textbook I have encountered in all my three years attending BYU. If one reads A Guide to Literary Criticism and Research and then takes the Speedback assignment, each bears no resemblance to the other, focusing on very subjective and tedious expositions. For instance, one of the questions gives this quote: "Martin Luther's passionate response to Erasmus on the issue of free will had less to do with his desire to correct Erasmus than it did with his wish to influence the public who would read the exchanges made between the two great Renaissance thinkers. Luther's intent was to create an ethos of confidence in the face of Erasmus's intellectual ambivalence, inciting the public to follow his strong lead. Thus, Erasmus was only the nominal audience. One must interpret Luther's arguments and rhetoric in light of the broader populace whom he was really addressing." The student is then supposed to decide what manner of criticism would go with that statement, which is so ambiguous as to work with any of the options of literary criticism. Secondly, instead of elucidating the material in the wretchedly dense textbook, the online course only serves to make the class more excruciating. This material is useful only to professors. It will not better my writing or enrich my understanding of texts, especially because A Guide to Literary Criticism and Research spends most of its time presenting the petty arguments various philosophers have made about literary criticism. I am deeply disappointed. For the amount of money I spent on this course, I expect my writing to improve and new material to be presented in enlightening ways, not the same material I have been subjected to throughout my undergraduate experience at BYU, merely presented in a torturous manner. I ask you to immediately examine your online class, chuck the horrid text, and reevaluate your Speedback assignments. If this were a normal class, I would immediately switch classes, but I am recovering from an operation and have no other choice but to trudge forward through this mire of exhibitionism. Sincerely, Jennifer Diffley

Dear Jennifer, dozens of students have successfully completed this course and say they have benefited from it, and I have not received a single complaint about the text I am sorry this has not be the case with you. I wish you had examined the lessons more carefully before you signed up. If you are as prepared as you imply, I am sure you will do well on the written assignments, which count more toward the final grade than the speedback assignments. JF

Dear Professor Fox,
 That really helps me out a lot, thanks for your thorough investigation. I’m sure that, since no one else complained about the text, it’s perfectly fine and I’m just making this up. Oh, and if you had read my entire letter, you would see that I didn’t have any choice but to sign up for this class. It’s required. In addition, a “Schwarz” textbook is mentioned in the course and there isn’t one on the required list of textbooks. But of course, if no one else has complained before, maybe it’s just me…. -Jennifer Diffley

Jennifer, since you are so unhappy about this course and the fact that you had no choice for another 495 class, would you like to switch to another course to satisfy your graduation requirement? I made several inquiries last week and discovered that there could be an exception made to allow you to switch your tuition to another 300 level literature course offered by the English Department through Independent Study. I don’t think we have done this before, but we could do it as an exception for you. We would also have to work out a way for you to sell the current textbooks back to IS. If you decide to switch, he English Department could then authorize a substitute course on your graduation plan. If you would like to do this, please look over the other 300 level literature offerings in English though Independent Study and let me know as soon as possible.
Jay Fox

Haha! I win =)  Whoever said that being a complete and utter bitch doesn't pay off certainly has never dealt with BYU before.

It's difficult. Very difficult. I didn't, in fact, think it would be this hard. I'm pretty much the only person (dare I say, loser) left in Murrieta. Gary's here, but he works all the time and Tyler's here, but he's ignoring me. That's it. My only two friends. Everyone else is gone. I read a lot and try to get some schoolwork done, but I don't have much motivation. What's the use of being skinny if no one is here to care?

11:21 am - Sorry
It just occured to me that I spend much more time reading other peoples' journals than writing in mine. Here's what's going on with me:
I've lost 22 pounds, I'm in a constant state of boredom, and my replacement hard drive still hasn't come in after one month of waiting so I don't have my computer yet.

Thar ye go.

10:15 pm - scars.
I haven't eaten since last Wednesday, but the good news is that I got the ok from the doctor to have cheese on Monday, so I'm looking forward to that. Here are pictures of the scars:

The cuts are about 1/2" each (because the surgery was done laparoscopically) and there are five of them.
Now I just sit here and wait for the phonecalls that never come, the good movies that never come on, and the words that are never spoken. Call me melodramatic.

current mood: cranky
