Sleepwalking my way through life: "I am no longer Emo."



"I am no longer Emo."

I finally cracked.

Yesterday, after work, I was walking through Glasgow, happily chewing on the remains of my celebratoy Mars Bar when I walked into someone. I was actually looking at an old man play a guitar and I just walked into this man, who was probably looking at the man too, 'cause he didn't see me coming and he whacked his head off of my chin. I mumbled my sorry before swallowing the rest of my Mars Bar (Which I almost choked on, I might add) and quickly setting off in another direction to avoid further embarrasment. That's when I almost walked into a window. Thankfully I stopped a few inches from the pane so I didn't hit it, but I looked inside and saw the new Harry Potter book for sale.
And yes. I bought it.

I couldn't help myself! It was just sitting there at a cheap price, so I got some money out of my account and bought it. I was going to get it eventually, I just wanted the hype to die down a bit so I wouldn't look like a teenage fan-boy. And since the fourth book came out to yesterday afternoon I didn't really like Harry Potter anymore.
I mean, it was a decent book and all, but it seems a bit too farfetched. I've just realised that I've already written all this down, so I'll shut up now.

So anyway, I started reading the book last night. I wanted to read it on the train, but Jason was there and I didn't want to be rude. And he was judging me when I brought it out.
I had it in a Borders bag and he asked, "What did you buy?"
"You don't want to know" I replied.
"You didn't did you?"
"Yeah I did," I said as I brought it out, "I snapped."
"How?"
"Well everyone was talking about it, and they were wanting to tell me things, so I've saved them the trouble by reading it."
"What people?"
"People on MSN, and people at work."
"How old are they?"
"Early twenties and stuff. But that's not the point."
And he laughed. I couldn't read it until I got home that night, and by the time I went to sleep I had already gone through over a sixth of the book. It's funny though, it takes me only a few hours to get through over one hundred pages of a Harry Potter book, but it's taken me seven months to get through four hundred or so pages of Anothiny Keidis' Scar Tissue.
I still have tonnes of books to read after those two. I have Insomnia by Stephen King, The Silmarilion by Tolkien and The long walk to freedom by Nelson Mandella.
Not to mention the things I need to read for English...

Well, I don't think I'll be taking English next year. I don't think I'll be up for the work load. I'm going to take Drama, Geography and Graphics all at Higher. That should keep me entertained for the year.
I go back to school in just over three weeks. This holiday has gone quickly. Like really quickly. I suppose that's 'cause I'm doing something like work instead of lazing about the house.
To be honest it doesn't feel like I'm going into sixth year. I mean, I know this year is going to have some big changes and all that, but I still feel the same as I do last year except this time I have free periods to look forward to. Lots of time to hang about with friends and stuff.

I haven't seem my friends in ages come ot think of it. Last time I saw them was two weeks ago on sunday I think. I'm going to force them to come to the Key so I can have a decent conversation with them. I haven't seen Maddy in three weeks come to think of it, same with Dan and Heather.
I need to go out this weekend and talk to people. This office is driving me crazy.

And my shirt is smelling odd. It is the same shirt that was in my bag when we all had that whipped cream fight, and it kinda smells of whipped cream. I get a little whiff of it every now and again. But my jacket is far worse. It's actually runied now because it smells so much. I can't walk past it in the hallway without breathing in that awful stench.
I suppose I should really throw it out.

Damn. I'm hungry now, and it's only twenty past eleven. This is the last day that I'll be having lunch while working. Tomorow I can get back to eating my lunch and staring aimlessly at DeviantArt for half an hour. Riveting.
Although I suppose it's a hell of a lot better than thinking of intelligent stuff to put on here.

I suppose I've put quite a lot on here today. Or should I say this morning, 'cause I bet I'm going to update again in the afternoon. I love my job. I'm getting paid to update my blog. It's great.

I still have a few more things to ramble on about, so bear with me.

I'd actually prefer writing this up at home if it meant that my computer was working again. I really want to go onto MSN and talk to people, and I really want to finish the drawings that I had on there. And I wouldn't mind watching an episode or two from Fullmetal Alchemist.
I hope it fixes itself. Though I doubt it will.

What I really hope is that I can download everything onto my laptop. Then everything would be great. But if I can't then all I have to do is plug in my brothers iPod and get songs from there before copying them to CD. But he doesn't have Less Than Jake damnit! Ah well. And I suppose I can redownload Fullmetal Alchemist using Azures (No SpyWare) and stuff. But it will take ages.
Tis annoying.

And now, the final thing I have to say for this post. And it's a very important announcment, so listen up.
I am no longer Emo.
I don't want to be one anymore. Well, I want to keep the hair and the music and stuff, but I don't want to be called an Emo. I don't fufill the specifications. For one thing, I'm too damn happy.
So from this moment forward, I shall no longer be part of the Emo crowd, I shall be part of the... Umm...

...

What the heck am I now then?
I'm not Punk, I'm not Ska, not Grunge, not a Metal Head, and I'll be damned if I'm a Goth.
I guess I'll be Joe.
