mood: melancholy
last night i worked
then i came home and got wasted
beyond comprehension
by myself and forgot how
much i actually drank.
I threw up 3 times in my room
last night
and had dry heeves this morning.
It made me nothing but more lonesome
and more depressed.
Someone help.

mood: lonely
Blair and I watched American Psycho today.
I worked for 6 hours and homicide and suicide seemed like the perfect answer.

Okay,
I have to get something off of my chest.
I have been really depressed lately. I go in and out of these phases and it's to the point where I am ready to just give up. I feel like crawling inside of a hole and not coming out for a long time.
I am a very jealous person. I am jealous of just about every one of my close friends. There are just so many things I wish I could change about myself...and I can't. It's not fair. I feel useless to myself and others.
I think I need to food addicts pamphlet Blair. My 15lb goal isn't looking so good I fucking hate it when people try and pretend they don't like something...when in reality they do, they're just trying too hard to be different. I don't know how else to explain it. But it bothers me.
Someone help.

mood: nostalgic
So, the other night I saw Sense Fail, Silverstein, the Bled and Emmanuel at St. Andrew's Hall. We got to Detroit at about 5:30pm or so. There weren't very many people there when we got there. We decided to try and go to the bathroom in a bar...BIG MISTAKE. Some old drunk man was at the counter and was saying something about "the girls with the boys and the boys with the toys." I tried to ignore him and then we followed the dark hallway down and the bathroom was around the corner. It was just a little too creepy seeing that there were only 3 old men in the bar at the time. So we wanted to get the fuck out of the place and we decided we could just hold it in. On the way out the fucking old assbartender was saying, "You girls look so cute and sweet...why don't you sit down and have a pop." We all just ignored him and got the hell out. Then we went to wait in line.
They let us in at a little ofter 6:30. We stood on the right side of the stage up against a baracade, that would later completely smash my back and puncture my sides. The band members had to walk past us to get to the stage. I saw Garrett on stage. We figured that he had to have walked past us to get on stage. I was furious. I have quite the crush on him. So, anyways, he sat on stage during Emmanuel. They were really good. During their set I looked back and saw Dan the drummer of Senses Fail Standing a little bit behind us. I thought Blair had seen him and said, "I want to get a picture with him." So i said, "Who Dan?" and she had no clue what I was talking about. I told her to turn around casually. She saw him and a little while later she called him over. We both got a picture with him. For some reason, I am VERY intimidated by him. He is like, 3 years younger than me, so I don't know why, but I didn't know what to say to him, so after I got my picture with him we just sort of stood, there..silent. He stood around for a good 30 seconds, and I think he was waiting for us to talk to him..but I didin't know what to say!!.
Anyways, after that ordeal, the Bled came on and put on a awesome show.
After them Silverstein played.....it was wonderful. I was a little saddened becasue I hadn't met Garrett. It was sort of putting a damper on the night.
So after Silverstein, came Senses Fail. It was great, except for the fucking moshers and crowd surfers. There were a few boys standing in front of us, blocking the moshers from us...I loved them for that. There were a few times where I was smashed up against the railing. That was enough for a sore rib cage and back. During the last song, Dave and Garrett climbed on top of the speakers and played their guitars. We think Garrett was afraid of heights because he was slowly climbing the speaker and kneeled the whole time, while Dave climbed up and stood there playing. I know I would have been scared! Of course, my camera decided to mess up and instead of having 36 exposures, i only had 29.
After the show was over we waited around a while. We saw the members over by their merch table talking to people. We talked to Buddy first. That guy makes me like the band more and more everytime. He is just so friendly. It was funny when he accused Ashlee of being drunk! After that, some guy walked up to Ashlee and handed her a guitar pick of Dave's...i was SOOOO jealous. She was nice enough to go ask the guy if he had more. Luckily he did, he gave Ashlee Mike's guitar pick, which she gave to me. Later on he came up to us again and Blair and I both got a pick of Dave's.
We saw Dave walking around so Blair got a picture with him. He wasn't very friendly:(. He just kind of got the picture and turned around and walked away. I was SO excited, because I play guitar, and to get a guitar pick of a band I love is the greatest thing ever to me. So Blair and Lindsey went to the bathroom, so Ashlee and I decided to talk to Mike. While I was talking to him...he seemed to be staring at my chest the whole time. And it wasn't casually, it was for a long noticable time. I was talking to him about how we saw them in Grand Rapids. He kept asking me if I had a good time. I turned around after a while and he said something and I didn't hear him. He told me that it meant a lot that I came to the show and gave me a big smile.
After that, I was completely devastated. All the boys were out except Garrett. I was standing there, sulking and I looked over and I saw him. Garrett was staninf about 5 feet away from me. I turned to Blair and we walked over to him. People kept walking in front of me when I would try and talk to him. Pretty soon the security guard was saying okay, last autograph everyone out. So I hurried up and asked him if I could get a picture. We took one and I said You guys were so awesome, and he said thanks and we had to leave. I was sad because I didn't get to talk to him, and he wasn't that talkative either. We think he's shy. But the fact that I met him completely turned my night around. I got my pictures back and I'll have to post them as soon as the other computer is fixed.
It was a great night and I can't wait to see them again in January!:)

Today I am going to see Senses Fail, Silverstein, The Bled and Emmanuel. I have to fucking drive now. I fucking hate expressway driving. But you gotta do what you gotta do. I had better fucking meet Garrett for all the fucking shit that's happening!

10:11pm 16/09/2004
 
mood: depressed
So lately, I have been questioning myself WHY can't I meet someone....more often than I already do. It's just depressing to find myself in class...when all the other people are talking amongst one another...and then there's me. I don't make friends very well....but really am i THAT avoidable...to where not one person can't talk to me? Even when I try to talk to other people it's like there's a warning sign above my head that reads "don't talk to her!" It's strange.
Also, I've been thinking a lot about what's going to happen in the future. Will I be happy...will I ever meet someone? I sat and listened to a conversation my mom was having with my aunt one day. My Mom was talking about the "beautiful" towels she bought at Meijer's. I mean...will I really find towels to be beautiful one day? Cause I mean, right now it's just something to wipe my hands with. It's just amazing to think of how a person's interests change. And it's also amazing how depressed I get. I just wish someone would come into my life and just change it completely. I mean I love my friends and I don't know what I would do without them...but they can't really give me what a boyfriend can. I am not asking for a fucking proposal...a simple heartfelt compliment from the opposite sex that I have feelings for, would be fantastic. It just seems completely unimaginable. I just wish something wonderful would surprise me about the idea of love, cause as of right now I think it sucks. And I don't want to feel that way about love cause it's supposed to be a beautiful concept and BLAH BLAH BLAH. So, is it too much to ask to find someone to help me change my mind? Cause everyone else has. And another plus of being in love is that this will be the last depressed entry of mine that you'll have to read if you're even interested in reading my journal...if it hasn't become predictable.
I am done.

Birthday Wishes from Hidden In Plain View and a Bum.   
11:19pm 13/09/2004
 
mood: loved
So last night Lindsey, Jonnelle, Ashlee and I all went to Detroit to see Hidden in Plain View at the Shelter. We left at about 2:30 and got to the Shelter at 4:30. The doors didn't open until 6:30. So, we had a couple hours to kill.
We were waiting behind the building for about 20 minutes and we saw a van with a trailer hooked to it and we joked around about it being Hidden in Plain View. It pulled behind the building and sure enough I saw Rob, the guitar player sitting in the passanger seat with Chris the bass player in the driver's seat. After a couple minutes four out of the 5 members piled out of the van and began unloading their equipment. I noticed that their singer, Joe, was not with them. Since it was my birthday the next day, we decided we would try to get them to say happy birthday to me on stage. So, Jonnelle walked over to Spencer (her little drummer boy;) and asked him to say Happy Birthday to me. Then Rob asked her how old I was and she said 20 and he said "SHE'S LEGAL!" So then Jonnelle pointed me out and told them which one I was. After that they started to pull away. We were all thirsty as hell. There was a pop that one of the members had left on their trailer and as they were driving away, Lindsey grabbed it off of their trailer and we passed it around to drink. Yeah, it's a little discusting, but we were dying as well.
So then, another van pulls up and people start piling out. I see Joe, the singer of Hidden In Plain View come out of the van putting on flip-flops. I was overwhelmed with excitment. I try not to act like I am at a Backstreet Boys concert, but he's gorgeous. So, he walks by us and says "Hi" as I stare back in complete dumbfoundedness. He went inside the building to unload equipment. Then, Ashlee and Lindsey wanted to go back to my car and get the cheese and crackers they left there. So I gave them my keys.
I saw Joe walk out and he started to talk on his cell phone. I told Jonnelle I wanted to talk to him, but I didn't know what to say. He was talking on his cell phone forever. Then Ashlee came back without Lindsey and said Lindsey went to get a bottle of water...in downtown Detroit. Crazy girl
Anyways, Joe finally got off his cell phone and I finally got the balls to go up to him. I said his name and he turned around. I asked him if we could get a picture. He said "yeah, definitely. So I reached in my purse and got my camera out. we posed but Jonnelle didnt know how to work it, so while she was figuring that out, Joe began squeezing me nito him and swaying back and forth. I was in heaven for about 5 seconds.Then jonnelle took the picture and I didn't see the flash go off. I was trying to figure out if it worked. Joe kept saying if it didn't we can take another one. So I jumped at that opporitunity and took another. Lindsey came back with her bottle of water saying that she went into a bar to get it and all these guy were harassing her in the bar and asking her to jump on the table and do a lap dance. I said that Detroit is too scary to go by yourself and to stick with someone else. Joe agreed and said that he thought Detroit was very scary.After I took Jonnelle's pic with him he looked at Jonnelle and said " i feel like i've met you before...did we meet at Warped Tour?" and Jonnelle said "No, I didn't meet you but i saw you guys," and I said "i met you at Warped tour" as he shook my hand and he just stared at me shaking his head and said I don't remember. So then he asked us all of our names and repeated them back to us and when he got to me he said " ican't remember it's going in and out!" and i said "NIKKI" and he's like oh yeah. So then they told him it was my birthday and i was 20 and Ashlee said he looked me up and down and smiled. (that made me happy) So then we talked some more and then he went inside.
After that Rob came out and we started to walk towards him and these 12 year old looking girls plus their aunt who drove them there walked up to him and said "it her birthday and I drove her here just to see YOU!" So, he took their picture and then he just sort of stood there. We walked up to him and I said hi. He said hi and pointed at me and was like "Happy Birthday!" and i was like THANK YOU! so then we took a picture and I called Blair and he was nice enough to talk to her for a couple minutes. After that we talked about the movie 8 Mile and how some of it was shot at the Shelter. Then he went back inside.
We decided to go wait by the door. There was probably 10 other peopl there by 6:00. They finally opened the doors at about 6:30. We got inside and I was so amazed at the size of the place. It was so small!
We walked around for a while and Jonnelle stopped Spencer again and asked him if he remembered her from the Warped Tour. He was trying so hard to remember, but sadly couldn't. He then turned to me and was like "Hey, isn't it your birthday?" and i said yes and he said "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!" and gave me a great big hug which was totally unexpected because last time I met him he seemed not as social...but i am NOT complaining!Then the first band played. To be honest, I don't even remember what they sounded like because I was so anxious for HIPV.
I met Stefania there and we talked for a while. Then we met Chris and got a picture with him.
The only one i didnt meet yet that day was Mike, who wasnt out very much or often.
Don't Look Down played next. They were awesome.
Next was Hidden in Plain View. I was so stoked. I was right up to the stage which was nothing more than a platform about 10 inches off the ground. There were no baracades to hold the crowd back, which was awesome.
They set up and started to play. The way they interacted with the crowd was awesome. Then Joe started to say "Okay, before I forget, I want to say Happy Birthday to a couple of people.." and he went on to say 3 people's names...all of which we NOT mine. I was very sad. Meanwhile, Ashlee is pointing at me and saying JOE! JOE! He kept looking my way but wasn't saying anything. So after a couple more songs Joe said, "I know the birthday segment is over, but I have one more," i figured...Oh this will be me!....NO he said someone else's name. At that point I thought it was funny so i was laughing. Ashlee is screaming Joe's name to get his attention. But, sadly, he didn't hear her. So a songor two later in between songs i hear Joe say "hey!" and I just looked up out of a reaction and he was looking at me. He said, " I forgot your birthday....I'm such an asshole! But I don't remember your name!!! Is it Jonnelle?" I said NO and he said "is it Ashlee?" and I said NO!! So anyways both him and Rob said Happy Birthday to me. And they played 20 Below. I was singing the words and Rob got in my face and screamed "WHOOO!" I started laughing. About part way through some asshole started moshing and ppushing EVERYONE that was up front.People were literally falling on the stage. Joe got this look of anger in his eyes and just glared at this kid. The kid jumped on stage and Joe shoved him right back off. After they werte done with the song Joe said, "Stop pushing, there people up front arre getting hurt!" and the kid replied with "Oh, they're just not having fun!" and Joe said "Yeah, I can tell they're not having fun I can see it in their faces," After that, he stopped pushing. Then they were all done.
I saw Joe standing over off to the side of the stage so Jonnelle and I went over to talk to him. I looked at him and was shaking my head and smiling. And he was like "I'm SO sorry! I knew it was your birthday but I couldn't remember your name so I was just being dumb! I AM DUMB!" Then he turned to Jonnelle and was like "Help me out!" and she was like "NIKKI" and he was like "OMG IT'S SO EASY!! I HATE YOU..IT'S TOO EASY!" He said "Well, Happy Birthday Nikki!" and gave me a big sweaty hug and many apologies.
Then Stefania came up and said she wanted another picture with Mike because her other one didn't turn out, but she was too scared to get him and asked me if I would. We saw him sitting behind a curtain so I asked him to take a picture with them. She was nice enough to let me take a picture with him because I was out of film! (thanks Stefania!)
We then walked over to the merchandise booth and started looking at the merchandise. Joe came over and stood right next to me and I felt stupid because I wanted to talk to him again. Ashlee started to talk to him and that broke the ice. I said to him "hey, what's my name?" and he said "nikki". We started talking about names and he was like...There are a lot of Nikki's out there! But I can remember Ashlee cause it's my brother's gf's name...but Nikki is cute!" Ashlee was like AWWWW! ahhahaha. We started talking about his pants and he said he had worn them 6 shows in a row. Then he started talking about his shoes. He asked us if we knew what they were. I didn't know what he meant so I was ready to say SHOES? but then Lindsey was like, "pot leaves?" and looked down and saw that the pattern on his shoes were pot leaves. and he was like "IT'S WEED!!! SHHHHHHH!" and started being goofy. We were all laughing so hard. Then he went outside and soon we did as well to leave. Although a bum walkedup to us and said something about a birthday and lindsey waslike "IT'S HER BIRTHDAY!" and the bum was like HAPPY BIRTHDAY...i wish i could get you something..but why don't you start off by giving me something" i was like " i have nothing to give you" and he walked away....CREEPY.
So the kid who was pushing everyone and causing injuries was talking to us and trying to get us to go to his band's website....we were all sort of ignoring him. When we were getting in my car he kept yelling. We drove away ANNOYED as hell.
We then got a little lost in the streets of Detroit but found our way eventually. There was a traffic back-up on I-75 and we were waiting....but who do we pull up to? the fucking annoying kid that was pushing people. They started talking to us and i rolled up the window slowly and drove away. HAH!
So, yeah, that may possibly be the longest Lj entry in history.
Eat it up! I had fun!

Five days and Counting...

mood: annoyed
Only 5 more days until i turn 20.
It's quite scary.
Tonight at worked sucked as usual. I have worked 6 hours for the last four nights. Tomorrow I work 4-8:30 and then on Friday and Saturday night I work 4 until 10. I'm not looking foward to it.
I am looking forward to the Hidden in Plain View concert on sunday at the Shelter with Linds, Ashlee and Jonnelle. Should be an awesome time.
September 23rd is the Senses Fail concert. That one should be extremely awesome. By the way go buy Senses Fail's new full-length -Let it Enfold You-
Buy their EP -From the Depths of Dreams- as well while you're at it, if you don't own them already, you're missing out big time.

So today I was in my car at Delta...and I realized something. All of the questioning to myself of why I don't have a boyfriend finally came clear to me. I sat there and looked at myself for few minutes and I realized how unattractive I actually am. Not that I thought I was glamorous before or anything....but today it just hit home.
Therefore..
I want to change myself...not only phsyically, but mentally and emotionally as well.
I want to dress more like a girl. As of now, I am resembling a 16 year old emo boy. I mean I like the way I dress....but I just want to wear nicer cothes once in a while...which is something I don't own.
I want to dye my hair dark brown and get bangs.
I want to lose weight. At least 15 pounds..that would make me feel so much more comfortable with myself.
So we'll see how long it takes to accomplish these goals.
It's not for you, it's for me.
