Journal

Here's the new journal, same as the old journal

July 18 at 8:48pm

Actually, this journal is pretty much nothing like the last one xD

(also, the last journal entry I wrote was the last day of last year holy crap)

Anyway, I'm pretty much just making this journal to replace the one from December, because it was getting too old and rancid. And I stole the format from Leopard, so it made me feel a tad dirty. Usually, I use journals to catch people up on my life, but I've said most of the important things in Stream posts. For the uninitiated, I'll give a cursory overview of Life Happenings of Icy over Two Months:

- School is over, thesis is over, YEAH
- I'm in a relationship with a fantastic female person who is absolutely amazing and yes I can't stop talking about it because I'm just as astonished as you are... probably more.
- I've been gone a lot; first in Europe, then at a leadership camp thirty minutes away, then at a youth group retreat in Kansas City. This equates to about a month away from home.
- I'm trying to hang out with people more often and form deeper friendships. That's a good thing, I'm positive.

So, yes, that's been my life so far this summer. Also, Cards Against Humanity. Come on, people, let's make it happen.

Alright, good talk, BREAK

ICE-ing on the Cake



The countryside's deserted
There's no one on the farm
The suburbs all are sleeping
The earthquakes set off car alarms...

By the power of the almighty Netflix, I have watched all 22 episodes of The Blacklist in three days. I have to do something like this while I don't actually have anything to do.

Has begun watching The Blacklist, and relates a lot to James Spader's psychopathic character. After all, shipping is my business.

I would like to publicly apologize to all of you Route 50 denizens for tearing apart the fabric of this website. Yes, it was me. I broke the Internet.

The pants of truth have come off, speaking metaphorically. And literally.



To all affected... this has happened before, and we will get over it, but for now I'm blaming Thane :P

Just got a text from my mom saying: "What were you doing up at 2 something in the morning?" Thing is...

I have absolutely NO recollection of being up at 2 AM this morning

I conclude that it was aliens

Took about four minutes out of my day to read "The Lottery" by Shirley Jackson. I had no idea it only took four minutes to permanently scar your psyche 8''|

In reading token Puritan literary epic/doorstop Paradise Lost, I came upon these lines:

Arming to Battel, and in stead of rage
Deliberate valour breath'd, firm and unmov'd
With dread of death to flight or foul retreat,
Nor wanting power to mitigate and swage


I was extremely disappointed to learn that "swage" was not the Old English verb form of "swag", but instead a word referring to the bending of metal. Kind of ruins the whole freaking 12-book, 10,565-line poem, doesn't it?

Guardians of the Galaxy was fantastic and you should go see it this second.



For those of you who have already seen the movie, the Howard the Duck appearance made me LOSE MY SHIT.

I've got LICENSE TO KILL... you with my car :D vehicular manslaughter is no laughing matter, children

No, actually, I've got a driver's license now, because being sixteen is where it's at. I feel the responsibility coarsing through my veins already... and I see the innumerable trips I will have to make for my younger brothers >w>;;

Insurance... gas... oh, the humanity...
