went out to the beach and watched people spin fire...i have a bunch of really neat pictures, including ones of adam spinning fire to UL. went and ate at denny's, then we went back to adam's and watched SLC Punk. i drove here to jessica's, to sleep before camp, but damnit, on the road to her house, probably only a mile or so away i nodded off unexpectedly[i thought i was fine until i would get there] and i went off the road. : ( i blew my tire and knocked up my right front rim, and i didn't have my spare this time. so i left my car up a side street and took my valuables and walked here. i couldn't tell if i hit a mailbox or anything because it was dark, but i'm not sure : / i will be going back tomorrow afternoon after camp to take care of it all...i just wish i had put my spare in my back like my dad insisted. damn.

supposedly...i'm a new wraver. [shrug]
actually. i was thinking about it, and why is it we tend to classify ourselves according to musical tastes? i can theorize, and a lot of times it is adequate for some groups of people...but sometimes it has no bearing...for example...i have no idea what i really would classify myself as, except by describing who i am and what makes me tick..which isn't a one liner. however, how do we come up with these things? seriously, do we realy have that low of esteem for the people around us that we can classify them based on silly things like clothing? hrm. it may work on a less personal basis...but even so, how can you take someone to be a generalization, especially based on musical taste. it's very silly.
