e.e cummings is my homeboy

love

if a cheerfulest Elephantangelchild should sit
(holding a red candle over his head
by a finger of trunk, and singing out of a red

book) on a proud round cloud in a white high night

where his heartlike ears have flown adorable him
self tail and all (and his tail's red christmas bow)
--and if, when we meet again, little he (having flown
even higher) is sunning his penguinsoul in the glow

of a joy which wasn't and isn't and won't be words

while possibly not (at a guess) quite half way down
to the earth are leapandswooping tinily birds
whose magical gaiety makes your beautiful name---

i feel that (false and true are merely to know)
Love only has ever been,is,and will ever be,So

not quite a year

...but close to it.

What to say, what to say. Well. I got a tattoo in February.



And I plan to get another one soon, on the top of that same foot. I originally thought about lines from e.e. cummings's "what is a voyage", but I like "if a cheerfulest Elephantangelchild should sit" a lot more. I was thinking about the last line:
Love only has ever been,is,and will ever be,So

I also got my tragus pierced on my left ear in May, and that was the most painful thing I've ever done in my entire life. Not only did the piercing itself hurt, but it throbbed for about twelve hours after. I don't regret it, but I won't be getting the other one done.

Why is my life so consumed by body mod? Oh dear.

I saw Harry Potter yesterday, and I cried, and then I got made fun of for crying. :[ The Weasleys fucking killed me. I can't handle parents crying over their children. Fucking. Killed. Me. And Alan Rickman was absolutely fabulous as Snape - his death scene made me cringe so bad. I left the theater in a daze, so I'll probably see it again to process everything.

I've started watching Hawaii Five-0, because csi_sanders1129 sucks at life. No, not really. She's fantastic. BUT. H50. Right. I don't even really like the show, but I keep watching it. So, I guess that counts for something. (Plus, the fandom for it is hilarious.)

Speaking of fandom. Hi there, Suits.

Something happened.

Yesterday, at 8:30, I woke up to the scariest text message I've ever read in my entire life.

"I just had to sprint out of the library because there was a shooter in the building."

It was from my friend Cat, who had gone to campus early to study in the PCL (Perry Casteneda Library). She and all the other students in the building were ordered to evacuate at roughly 8:20, because there was a student with a gun making his way up to the sixth floor.

I got out of bed, got dressed and walked into the kitchen with my phone in my hand. There were maybe three or four other people awake. I stared at them and said, "Cat just texted me that there's someone with a gun in the library. And I don't know what to do."

In the following minutes, more people started coming into the kitchen, reporting the same news. There was a shooter on campus. We all sat down at the table together, sending out as many text messages to as many people as we could.

Where are you?
Are you okay?
Don't go to class
.
Stay safe.

I remember going to my room and phoning my brother, Ian. I woke him up with my call.
Hello?
Oh you haven't left yet. Thank God.
What?
There's someone with a gun on campus.
...Wow.
Yeah. Where are your room mates? Are they home? Tell them not to leave.
They might have gone to class already.
Find them.
Okay.
I love you.
Love you too.

I called my mom. I told her that I and my brother were safe. She answered and the first thing I said was, "we're okay! Ian and I. We're okay." I almost started crying. I just kept saying that we were okay. Maybe I was trying to convince myself, I don't know. She said she was glad. I told her I would keep her updated.

There were more people in the kitchen. They all had their laptops. Some were streaming the news. Others were frantically refreshing facebook. I was checking facebook and twitter on my phone. Everyone was sending text messages, making phone calls. We all wanted to tell everyone that we were safe. We all wanted to make sure that everyone was safe.

It was eventually confirmed that the shooter took his own life on the sixth floor of the PCL. He killed himself in front of people. Then the rumors started circulating that there was a second gunman somewhere else on campus. We went into lockdown as the police and SWAT started combing the surrounding buildings to find him.

It was later reported that there was no second gunman. It was just a rumor.

Regardless, the people that were stuck on campus were in lockdown for four hours. A lot of my friends were trapped in various lecture halls and classrooms, sitting on the floor under their desks. We never stopped talking to each other, either through text message or facebook.

However quiet our campus was, it was not silent.

Eventually, everyone made it home. Aside from the nineteen year old gunman, no one else was hurt. Everyone is okay, for the most part. We're going to be okay. Someone had a gun on my school campus, but we are going to be okay.

Bandwagon! :D

I've gotten a bunch of new friends in the past few weeks, and I figured it would be nice to have a little meet-and-greet post. :3 Best way to get to know someone is through a needlessly long questionnaire, right? The form is under the lj-cut. :D

Oh, and. Please do this even if we've been friends for forever.

I get by with a little help from my friends...Collapse )

Here's mine!Collapse )

School started the day before yesterday. Expect a real update sometime when I get the chance to really think it out. I also really need to do some reading for my English class. Triple fuck.

ATTENTION ATTENTION ATTENTION

I need all you cool kids to answer me a question:

If someone told you that the world was ending in seven days - seriously, going to end, everyone's going to die - what would you do? I'm not talking about after you've had the chance to do your own research and come to that same conclusion. I mean, in that second you realize that this person is not a lunatic, not a fanatic and is telling the 100% truth. What would you do?

It's happened.

I've realized that I've become a little too vulgar and obscene for the casual viewer. Or perhaps I've become so bizarre that only my friends may accept me. As such, comment to be added. <3
