Looking Back...

I was digging through old notebooks in search of a school assignment (which I still can't find) and I came across a bunch of emo-quotes I had from when I was younger. Ah, my younger self thought the world was a dismal place, and thought that she was most wise and philosophical. Although, there were a couple of quotes I think I'll have to use in a book sometime.

"Sleep - resting on a bubble - floating in the air -
And I felt like someone was about to pop it."

'Bubbles' is such a fun word to say :)

One thing I wrote made me bust out laughing: "Why is my brain having such a hard time right now? Why can't it work like a normal brain? With simple thoughts, things that make sense." Ahahaha... Normal. To think that I once wanted my brain to be normal. Now I thank God every day for my abnormal brain, or else I would die of boredom.

This is an abnormal brain, according to google. It looks more like ice chips to me.
Or really weird coconut.

There was also this poem I wrote, that I actually kind of like:

"Pitter, patter, hear the noise - listen to them run
Titter, tatter, listen voice - hear them be undone
It's not enough to suck your blood
They want to suck your soul
It's not enough to chew your bones
They want to take you whole."

Zombies? I don't know. I never did the whole Zombie thing, and freaked out when I thought I might do a Vampire-esque book.

Me freaking out. As a cartoon. With two sets of ears.
Or I'm holding up a giant slab of baloney/spam
and getting ready to stuff it in my mouth.

Joan Crawford said...

I love that poem! It is catchy and simple but dark and unexpected.

Oh man, the Emo years.

"Everyone's out to get me! I am so flawed and special but I have a hard time coming to grips with it!" :D

@Shannon and Falen: Thanks! :)

@Joan: "Everyone's out to get me! I am so flawed and special but I have a hard time coming to grips with it!" Ahahahahaha... So true! Ridiculous.

Blam said...

I really like that poem, too.
As for the second set of ears, those are pigtails. Oh, manga.

Falen said...

ps - i have an award for you at my blog if you want it

SonshineMusic said...

My dear sister, you must share with everybody that wonderfully insightful poem that was shared at YAF. It will make everyone here ponder long and hard as it did for us :D

AchingHope said...

@Blam: Are you sure? I think they're ears.

@Falen: Awww... I feel special :)

@Sonshine: Ah, yes. I shall have to dig it up so I get the wording just right.

Blam said...

I'm pretty sure that they're pigtails, ponytails, what-have-you. Or she's sprouting sweet potatoes out the back of her head. Maybe they're sad, unopened tulips the same color as her hair.

Oh man, I didn't think about that. :O Maybe they are potato/tulips. Will we ever know??

LOL, I love this whole post! and now I want some baloney.

Y.F.N. Palindrome aka Hannah said...

forgot to subscribe...pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. *waving arms dramatically like a magician*

AchingHope said...

Really? I always found baloney much too questionable to consume.

That's strange, there was something else I wanted to say... something about a curtain... I have a sudden lapse in memory.

Y.F.N. Palindrome aka Hannah said...

Oh, I don't get the baloney with all the crap in it, just your run of the mill Ocscar Meyer baloney. It's good stuff. It tastes like a fun dog sandwhich!!

VW: relitab- when you retaliate by pressing the tab key a lot.

AchingHope said...

It tastes like a fun dog sandwhich!! Oh my, I don't know if I should laugh or cry.

Hmm...

Laugh. Definitely laugh.

Y.F.N. Palindrome aka Hannah said...

I just realized I misspelled "oscar"...er, I stoopid.

AchingHope said...

Oh. Well, I never would've noticed. I think the last time we had that in our house was like, seven years ago.
