The new Emily’s Army album Lost at Seventeen is streaming on the Rolling Stone website, and it is fucking incredible. As you move through the songs, each one proves to be even better than the last and it’s just really a progressive record for the band, as they all seem to have noticeably improved as musicians, as well. I’m really proud of this band, and I definitely recommend you check them out if you haven’t already. (Also, be sure to pick up the new album on June 11th!)
I started my new, and very first, job 2 weeks ago! It’s alright, I suppose. I’m just a cashier, plus I have to do a handful of other jobs around the store. I also had an interview and got a job offer at Subway, but I turned it down. I’m not really sure why, or if it was a good idea, but what’s done is done.
What else have I been up to….not much, honestly. Just been super stressed and tired and I don’t know.
I actually put some effort into my appearance today. I painted my nails and did something different with my hair. It feels good.
Three nights in a row where I’ve not been able to get to sleep until after 4AM. This is highly unpleasant.
I feel like I’m at that point in my life where I’m just gonna say/do whatever I want, whenever I want, and deal with the consequences later.
Whether that’s a good or bad idea is something I’ve yet to figure out.
‘Stop Crying Your Heart Out’, by Oasis
If people read all the little thoughts that I’ve scribbled down on various sheets of paper, they’d probably think that I spent all my days moping about, all sad and despondent. But that is so far from the truth. I just write better, and more honestly, about the shittier side of life. I feel like there’s much more emotion there, and that’s why it’s the main focus of most of my ramblings.
Plus I think it’s good to express your feelings about stuff that affects you negatively, because once you get it out of your head, it’s much easier to move on from it and be happy.
