Bad Day

Where is the moment we needed the most / You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
You tell me your blue skies fade to grey / You tell me your passion's gone away
And I don't need no carryin' on

You stand in the line just to hit a new low / You're faking a smile with the coffee to go
You tell me your life's been way off line / You're falling to pieces everytime
And I don't need no carryin' on

Because you had a bad day /You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know /You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day / The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day / You had a bad day

And I thought Ryan Doumit was having a bad day on Monday. Who's that? He's the catcher for the Pirates. I was watching the dodgers/Pirates game on Monday. Doumit was hit by a pitch by Kuroda (I think that was who was pitching) as well as getting hit by his OWN pitchers. The pitch would bounce in the dirt and hit him ... in the knee ... in the shoulder ... in the balls.

First off ... I checked my bank account ... not only was I overdrawn ... but THREE times. Don't ask. Then I go to work ... which isn't fun anyway because my job is on the line ... and I had to work my least favorite person. I get home ... and get on my computer ... and an hour later... WHAM! BAM! I got a virus. A computer virus. So yeah. Not having a good week. On top of it all... the Dodgers lost to the Pirates ... 15 - 8. Now that's insulting. To add salt to their wound ... the Diamondbacks won. At least it wasn't as embarassing at the Angels losing to the Athletics. Oh. And throw into the mix the Mets fall out of first place ... and Nomar hurts his knee going around third!

hehe maybe I shoudln't have gotten out of bed today. Nina and I get to school ... and our class is canceled? Dare I ask what next?

Old friends

So I looked up an old friend on Myspace and was about to leave him a comment ... but changed my mind about it. Why? Because I haven't talked to him in forever. I haven't left him a comment since his birthday I think. As I thought about what to say him, there was nothing I could think of that didn't come out awkwardly. Too much time has passed and we've gone our different ways. It's probably best if I just let the past go. We had good times in high school, but that was a long time ago. We had good times in college, but that was awhile ago. We've changed a lot since then. We're no longer the people we were. And I think we've changed too much to try to overcome it. Sad, but true. Just like I am realizing I really have to let go of some people from my past. One such person who has since disappeared out of my life. And I've come to realize that I have to let go of who this person was, because obviously it's not who he is now. I've come to realize that if he can walk out of my life without looking back, I guess I can go on through the rest of my life without looking back as well. I've come to realize that if he wants to completely disappear off the face of the earth, that I should probably let him.

But that doesn't mean I won't hold a few memories close to my heart.
