Hm. So, things have been mildly better. The three of us were supposed to hang out today, but Philip went home sick so it was just me and alicia. And, while it would have been 480438 times better with Philip...it was nice. There was no tension, no secrets, just us. And I dont know.
I think its time to pick up and move on. Just get over it. I mean I'm not going to pull away if they're willing to make amends, but if this is just temporary....then whatever. Life goes on, right? Its not like they're my ONLY friends...they just happen to be the best.
So here's the deal: Jackie's sweet 16 is this Saturday. There are going to be lots of kids from EB. New people; New chances. Not to mention Jackie, myself and her supposedly wicked awesome friend Molly(who I have yet to meet) are going clubbing soon. Peut être, it is time to leave that Creamy Council stage of my life. Peut être, it is time to enter a new stage. The Jackie/Molly/clubbing stage. I dont know. The thing is, is that I'm pumped for this. I've been waiting all my life for this. But- at the same time, can I leave 'walking around in the snow discussing the advantages and disadvantages of religion on modern day society'? Can I really put aside my theological/philosophical questions for a hot guy to grind with? For a night? Psh-hell yeah! For a week? Probably. Any longer? ...I dont know.
If the secret to life is balance, why do I feel like I have to choose which road I go down? Actually, DO I have a choice? I feel like this choice is to be determined by others, which means I'm not in control of myself. No, thats not okay. "Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control; these 3 alone lead to sovereign power." Well thats fucking fine and dandy, but I feel like I'm not in control. How do I regain control of my life without Philip and Alicia? ...I contradict myself, I am aware. But they are my life. They taught my how to live and without them...well its a lot harder.
Can I survive without them? Yeah, I can. Do I want to? my god, no. I would do almost ANYTHING to avoid that. But truthfully, I dont see what I can do. Quite honestly, the ball is in their court and if they dont want to play it, then game over. My god, I want them to drag me to the Evil Lake sit me down for tea and then throw me in and make me swim with Nessie. I want to swim to the other side and get lost in a world we dont understand. I want to sit in my basement and feel utterly inferior to two of the greatest young (and soon to be wasted) minds, I've ever met. [The reason they are soon to be wasted: Pot-enough said. Well thats one, but the other? Great-you have a boyfriend. BUT DONT FUCK UP 11 YEARS OF BEING A STRAIGHT A STUDENT BECAUSE OF IT! Thats just not acceptable, hun! Do my grades even compare to yours? As a rule, hell no! But this marking period? THEY'RE FUCKING CLOSE! Yeah, great for me who's been getting shitty grades for the past 5 years but you? NO! A 'C' and 3 'B's is NOT okay for you. And I can sit here and agree with you about it being hard, but the truth is, is that its because you're distracted.]
So do I say "fuck 'em" and make new friends or do I keep hanging on? Someone needs to walk up to me and just give me a cut and dry answer. "Forget it" or "Hold on"-- A sign, a simple sign...thats all I need.
I dont know. I was in a good mood and was going to sit down to write good things. Then my mind wandered....god, what a scary place. I appologize to whoever may actually read this. But everyone needs someone to bitch to. My friends are on "holiday" so I've got to settle for this.
