Today I had my first day at Sam Ash. It kicks ass, but my feet/knees hurt like hell!! I'm going to be working full time, so that means I will have no days off EVER!!! I have the two days off for school, which are Mondays and Wednesdays... But I think I can do it, I'm so determined that I'd even work over-time just to get to my goals more efficiently. Who would have thought that I'd ever be a workaholic?? I guess money is really motivating, since I never got paid to go to school, haha. Although it's not really money I want, just music gear, a studio, a car... and all that good stuff. The interview was interesting because at first they seemed like they totally didn't want me and it was ending quickly... However at the end when they asked me "Do you have any questions?" I asked them what it takes to work in the guitar section and as they were explaining I "casually" threw in every bit of knowledge I had of guitars, pick ups, amps, etc. and they were so impressed they hired me on the spot, mwahahaha! I guess my guitar obsessivness finally paid off. Anyway, tomorrow I have to wake up at 5:30 to go to school so gotta keep it short, I love you my friends.

PS. They made me a laminated name-tag, teehee. I told them to spell it with a Y... don't want to end up stabbing random customers when they call me "Djaleena" by accident. :-]

Sooooo I haven't written for a while, just thought I'd say what's up to everyone and let you all know I'm still alive. I started college Jan 3, just finished the winter semester last week and started the spring one on v-day. I'm getting nothing but A's and B's, for the first time in my life, woohoo! College is so much better [and different] than high school, what a breath of fresh air! Can't say the people are THAT much different, since it is community college after all, but still they're there because they want to be and not because they have to be. The first time I walked into a restroom I was so shocked!! NO GRAFFITI!!!!! And the bathrooms are CLEAN! And have toilet seat covers and soap and paper towels and a hand dryer and warm water and and and... it's a dream come true, haha. Everyone's really mature and doesn't care about you, really. It's cool not to have unwanted attention. I also try not to wear my "metal" clothes too often for that same reason. I just want to go there, do my work, and learn, not make a statement. Maybe this means I have finally began to grow up??? Like there's this gothic girl at school with all these tattoos and billion piercings and freaky concact lenses and globs of bright make up on and I just have to stop and admire her, but at the same time wonder why? What's the point of spending 2 hours in the bathroom making yourself look like an alien when you're going to school? I mean I'd understand if you were going out to some club or concert, or having a show, but why at school? It's kinda pointless, unless you really want attention THAT badly... right? I don't know, I guess it's not my place to judge others, but I just wouldn't do it personally. I made some cool friends, too, like Irene and Anthony. And of course I made some friends I wish I hadn't, but that's another long story, which I won't bother to explain since it's nothing but headaches.

Other than school, I've been playing guitar as much as humanly possible!! I try to squeeze in any free time I have. I think I've been improving a lot, but I can't really tell since no one says anything. All I know is I've been writing a lot of new music lately. Next week I'm going to meet up with this really good drummer so maybe I can get my side project going, I really hope it works out since the last guitarist I was supposed to jam with flaked on me!! Wish me luck peeps.
Also, my band GRIMOIRE has a song and pictures up at www.myspace.com/grimoireband so please check that out when/if you have the chance!! Anyhow, that's it for now, meanwhile enjoy the new pics.

Beginning 2005...Collapse )

I've decided to take more pics of myself and the people/things in my life because I don't do that enough. I think it's fun and everyone should do it, to remind yourself of good times and such.

Is it me, or do I not have any friends anymore? Am I too obsessed with playing guitar? I finally got down sweep-picking and no one seems to care... =(

I'm still fucking depressed about Dime, I can't believe he's gone, I learned all this new stuff on guitar because of him and now I'll never get to meet him or see him live. WHAT A FUCKING CRUEL WORLD!!!!!!!!

On Dec. 25th, one of my old friends from high school was driving home at night on a windy, curvy road on a cliff, when apperently another unexpected car came her way and she swerved off, falling to her death down the 150 ft drop. I knew her all throughout high school, one of the first friends I made when I started in 9th grade. We had the same birth-date and even lived on the same street, so we always called ourselves the twins. I never really got to know her outside of school, but we always had a good laugh, especially whilst making fun of the ditsy girls. She was one of the few cool people, and I'm sad to know that she won't be around anymore. I'll miss you Candice, may you rest in peace.

[Current Music |Burzum - "Den Onde Kysten"]

Sometimes I hate my position in life. I just can't stop butting heads with my dad. I'm so fucking angry right now but I have to hold it in because then all Hell is going to break loose. Again. And nothing is going to get solved and I'm just going to feel like shit again for the next 2 weeks. So I might as well feel like shit now and get it over with than wait longer. I just hate the fact that no one understands me or where I'm coming from, no one understands why I wanted the goddamn pictures to be taken. Well fuck them, I don't want them anymore. They all have their photo albums of themselves and their son, but where the fuck am I? I'm some fuckin enigma, I already threw away 75% of my stuff just to please them so that my grandpa and my brother and his girlfriend could have a place to sleep comfortably, I might as well burn the rest of it and kill myself. Then there won't be a single trace of me left, and maybe one day I'll be fucking happy. If it weren't for my guitar, I'd fucking do it, too. Then they'd feel sorry for not taking pics of me, and they'd realize how much they all take me for granted.

I still cannot believe Dime is dead!!! My heart is broken, another fallen guitar hero to add to my list of RIP 's...



Dimebag Darrell

Playing Live

Crazy Dime

Badass Dime

Black and White



This further convinces me that people are unthinkably cruel creatures, I don't understand how or WHY anyone could ever shoot Dimebag Darrell, he was possibly the coolest, nicest, badass guitarist around, so very talented and true. Why would anyone want to take that away?? Why why why why why?

[Current Music |Testament - "Disciples of the Watch"]

Okay, so I tried to sleep normal hours, I got about 2 and a half, 3 total, of hours of sleep and I just couldn't sleep any longer. Last night I went to my friend Shaun's place. He's been a good friend of mine for a while, but we didn't really get too close because of his gfirlfriend Erica, who was also my friend from high school for a while. Anyway she's out of the picture because she cheated on him and acted like a total bitch about it, but I won't even go into that. I feel sorry for her, if anything, since she's so insecure and fucked up in the head. She went as far as to break HIS things [his collectible items from Nightmare before Christmas, by the way] and yell at HIM and accuse HIM of cheating on HER with any girl he so much as talks to, but he's the sweetest, coolest, funniest guy on the planet! Think of Jim Carrey but a little more sarcastic and you've got Shaun, basically. Anyway, like I said, I won't even go to that becuase it's a whole other story, let's just leave it at the fact that she's always been a drama queen, and this event just confirms it.

So when Shaun was born he was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, which basically is a hereditary disease that affects the lungs and most people with it don't live past the age of 19. He's also been diagnosed with diabetes, and has had one lung removed already. He's going to be 20 in January. I hadn't seen him in months and when he came to pick me up the other day I already knew he got worse because of the way he was breathing. Then he told me the doc said his lung is getting worse, and last night I found out that he's only got about a year left. This disheartened me, of course, because I so strongly believed he'd beat the odds and have a couple more years at LEAST. But I guess not.

Anyway, having told you his medical background, bascially he's dying. And the reason I'm so fucking pissed is because his roomates are not only assholes to him and treat him like shit, but they also smoke around him, knowing he's only got one lung left and that smoke is LETHAL to him!! They don't even have the courtesy to crack a fucking window when they burned food in the pan and smoke was everywhere. And to top it off, they also looked in his wallet and wrote down his pin number, stealing all of his money to buy stupid shit like pizza and enroll into classes at Caynon College!!! What the FUCK is wrong with these people?!? I just don't understand how someone can take a dying man's only money for survival and use it for themselves!!!! Not to mention one of them had the fucking nerve to ask for 100$ back from him since they will have another room mate soon. WHAT THE FUCK!!! These people make me so sick, I hope they go to jail and get ass-raped!!!!!!!!
