disclaimer: i’m not depressed. i’m actually severely happy. [new LJ post]

but… i was just thinkin about life. i was thinkin a little about “fame” and “celebrity” (what a great nsync record). this is not about to be some crazy profound thing. you’re not going to get smarter nor will i look much smarter to you after reading this post… i’m just saying, i was thinkin… and i wanted to write about it.

the past year and a half has not been easy or hard. honestly, i can’t remember much of it because it went by too fast for me to understand what was actually going on. it still surprises me when i hear one of our songs on the radio or see a picture of us in a magazine. i still don’t get why the hell someone would care to have one of our signatures on something of theirs haha. on a daily basis, we are asked, if not by a journalist then by a fan, what it feels like to be famous and yet i still draw a blank every time. because, to me, we are just the same. the only true difference between the life we lived before riot and the life we live now is that every little thing. every. insignificant. thing. that we do is cared for in some way. whether it be concern, obsession, hate, a genuine interest or delight… everyone has their opinion and we hear them all at some point. i really don’t mind listening. yes, it can get old. it can be humorous or enraging or just plain sad… nothing changes the fact that there’s always someone out there coming up with new theories about us, new ideas so that they can get a grip or put a handle on who we are. i might sound bitter but actually i’m just a little bit fascinated. i still haven’t really figured out what it means to be known of but not understood in any way shape or form. i could fill a hundred pages of lyrics, poetry, broken thoughts and still never be understood even the slightest. it’s a good thing. i just don’t get it yet.

life has never been so exciting and so wonder-full. the greatest part is not understanding it. not being able to tell what’s next. everyone wants what they can’t have but when i look back on days i thought i wanted something completely different than all of this – i can see how stupid that was. how selfish i was to ever try putting myself in someone else’s story. (neverending stooryyyyy!!! … sorry).

to sum up these scattered thoughts i would like to say this: when we think we know people inside out and we think we know what’s best for them we should try to remember we don’t even know what’s best for ourselves.

[ mood | awake ]
[ music | “I Wont Let Me” – Descendents ]

apparently, there’s a radio station in rhode island offering callers a chance to win a date with me. WHOA!? i mean, they could be talking about tickets to the show; trying to play it up to be funny. not so funny if people believe it, though.

just wanted to clear everything up… let you guys know… no one will be winning a date with anybody in our band. but it is pretty funny to think that somewhere in rhode island some kid has the station on speed dial thinking it’s true. alright, maybe not!

this tour is a blast. we are headed to NYC for a day off tomorrow before going to z100 the next morning to do some acoustic performance. should be a good time. i am loving acoustic performances more and more. i wish we had more to do! i dunno what we’re gonna do with ourselves having a whole day off in the city. i love new york. maybe i’ll make a trash and vaudeville visit. (like i need more clothes… NOPE!!!) think i’m gonna hang with mr. john janick… the dude that makes it all happen. it’s been a while since we’ve hung with him and he’s always a lot of fun to talk to about music with. plus, we all share a love for pinkberry. YES!

after NYC it’s on to philly. one of our favorite cities to play. nothing like south street. i wonder if we’re playing there this time? i don’t think so for some reason… but i hardly ever look at our schedule i just get on the bus and go with everyone.

today was my baby sis’ first day of school. is summer seriously over?! my mom just told me that i used to beg her to pack salads for me in kindergarten for lunch hahah i don’t remember that. what kind of little kid wants salads for lunch? what happened to lunchables? anyone here remember lunchables? haha the pizza kind were ridiculous. but by the time i hit middle school i was a cafeteria food eatin’ kid. i would always forget to bring lunch money and have to have them put it on my school credit. so, i owed like 50 bucks by the end of each month haha. what a loser, hayley. speaking of all of this, my yearbook photo comes out tomorrow. joy.
