Ain't nothing out here but me, the road and the radio
Looking for an exit and a song that I might know
Counting down the memories and adding up the miles
Searching for a feeling I ain't felt in a while

Clarity and inspiration
Happiness is a destination that's hard to find
It may take some time
But in my mind there's something more
And I'll open up a brand new door
And find the strength to close the ones I left behind
And I'll get there leanin' on some friends I know:
The road and the radio

Spent the night in Carolina, got up early out of bed
Bought a Red Bull and a road map and a old Stones cassette
Setting my sights south bound, no reason or rhyme
Threw up a prayer just lookin', just lookin' for a sign

And some clarity and inspiration
Happiness is a destination that's hard to find
It may take some time
But in my mind there's something more
And I'll open up a brand new door
And find the strength to close the ones I left behind
And I'll get there leanin' on some friends I know:
The road and the radio

In my mind there's something more
And I'll open up a brand new door
And find the strength to close the ones I left behind
And I'll get there leanin' on some friends I know:
The road and the radio
The road and the radio
The road and the radio

Mmmm-mmm-mmm ...
The road and the radio
The road and the radio
Mmmm-mmm-mmm ...

ok, so i heard this song coming back to Wilmington on a very clear section of I-40. and it got me thinking. is there where i need to be going right now? i mean, what am i doing here in Wilmington anyway, other than to go to school. sorry, but i'm not sure if i wanna do the whole "School" thing anymore. the people here are wonderful and i love it here but is there where i'm supposed to be in this hour of my life. i'm 18. why am i having to make future decisions now?? and why do i still feel restlist? why do i feel i should be heading in the other direction?? going West instead of East?? i feel like i should be doing something more creative with my life instead of what my parents and what teachers have told me for years. "you'll do so well in college!" but i still feel like its not where i want to be. the more i do Karaoke on Wednesdays, the more i want to sing. the more i dance, the more i want to be a choreographer. the more i watch movies, the more i want to be an actess. the more shows i go to, the more i want to go out on tour and see the world. do i need to take a year off?? or just ditch summer school and take a major road trip and see what i can do out in the land of dreams? do i need to travel 3,000 miles to find happiness, or will i find it here without going very far? the pressure to succeed is placed to heavily on todays youth. we shouldnt have to decide this early what we want to do with our lives. that way, for us career confused people, we have some years to figure out what the hell we want to do. others are more lucky than others, and i thought i was a lucky one. but the more i go towards that goal of reasearch, the more i get turned off by the thought of being a normal person in society. i still want to stand out!!!! the more creative road i want to take! and what about love lifes? the one person i have grown closest too is the same 3,000 miles away as the creative dream land. do i need to see that person before i can move on with my life? is he the door i have to open before i can shut the others for good? should i have taken a year off and backpacked across america? or was coming to Wilmington what i needed to do the most?

please tell me your thoughts.....i need them to sort out my own..

ok, when in Wilmington on a Saturday night, there should be a shit load of stuff to do. not always true. see, for "not cool" people me, Samantha and Travonna from J. we have to create our own hell. hince the decission to drive to Myrtle Beach at 1:30 in the morning!!!

Ok, me and Sam have already been to the beach once that night, trying to calm her down because of stupid boys. Well we get back to the apartment and we are start getting bored again. we're sitting in the living room, and an idea hits me! Lets go to Myrtle Beach!!! its 1 in the morning but i dont care..lets go!!! well, after we figured out the car situation, Jay calls. drunk with his cousins, one of whom is passed out. he decides to invite himself and Zac, the awake drunk cousin. John is the passed out drunk person. we are still in the apartment when Eric called Travonna..asking what we were doing tonight. we finally get out of the apartment at about 1:30, and we have 2 places in Brunswick County before we even get to the border.

Eric is first. hes drunk with a bunch of buddys. i loved being around them cuz i felt at home cuz they were a bunch of rednecks. well..Eric decided that he didnt want to come cuz none of us was getting "neckid" (which is naked but doing something else in too). so we kinda leave there...without his hot Dodge Ram too...*sniff*

well we head further into Brunswick County to pick up Jay and Zac, when Jay called Samantha asking where we were and was telling Zac that 3 chicks were coming over and we're leaving John's passed out self here, aparently John heard that and said "Fuck yall"...and Jay just had to say "he arose". so at this time we're kinda glad that Eric didnt come. well...we pull up to the camper...i kid you not...and there are the boys standing outside waiting for us. i've been wearing Jays hat the entire time and he figures that out, and for the rest of the trip is determined to get it back.

well...then comes the task of fitting 6 people in a 5 passenger Civic. this is why i'm glad we didnt take my little beatle. 1st arangement: Jay John and Zac in the back with Sam sitting across all 3 of them. the car was dragging and got stuck in the sand cuz there was too much weight in the back. so everybody got out so we could get the car out of the drive way...and resituated. 2nd arangement: the girls in the front with me sitting in/on Sams lap and the boys in the back. still kinda draging. so we get to 17 and stop at a Kangaroo for a potty break and food run. then we get back in the car. 3rd arangement (this one worked): John me and Jay in the back, with their arms around me and Zac sitting in Sams lap baby style. now please remember that the boys are drunk. so the entire way down there we are all just talking and laughign and i have a vantage point in the back...i can hit all three guys!! hehe..i loved it and i used that privalage. Jay and John kept hitting eachother with the arms that were around my neck..so i had to control them and Zac needed some hitting too...but one time i did hit all three of them with the hat just for the hell of it. that was one hell of a fun car ride. interesting too.

well we finally get to Myrtle Beach around 4-ish and walked around the boradwalk for a bit, then went down to the beach. we are walking down the beach in a pattern..guy girl guy girl guy girl. all of us locked together with our arms. i'm between John and Jay again. well..someone mentioned Vodka..and we did an IMMEDIATE u-turn and headed back the way we came. but we didnt go back to the car...we kinda kept walking til some mentioned the fact that we missed "the big weiner" and we try to get off the beach a different way..which was a puddle so we had to go up a mini sand dune. then Jay thinks it would be funny to fall and see how many people would go down with him. hes on the end...with me!! so i go down and so does John...everybody else made it up. well i got up and we headed back to the car..but made a pit stop at these little picknick tables:
its Jay at one table
me on Johns lap beside Zac across from Sam and Travonna
and we just sit there and talk for about an hour. the only reason i was sitting on John was because the tables had dew on them and i'm not one to sit down on cold wet places. well, we'd been sitting there for a good 30 mins to an hour when Zac noticed that the sun was coming up. so we all go down to the beach again and watch the sun come up. then when the boys had to leave, we walked back to the little boardwalk...when Travonna say dolphins feeding off shore. so we stand on the little benches to watch..then Sam got "carried away" by a ready to go Jay...i got down and walked myself before John did the same to me.

same arangement going back..just A LOT quite-er cuz most of us were passing out. Zac went out on Sam's shoulder and his marshmellow jacket, me on John's shoulder, Jay on my shoulder, John on my head, and Sam was just trying to keep the sun out of her eyes. when we get back to the road that Zac lives on...we figured out that Travonna brought Zac's driveway all the way to the end of the road. so we finally unload the car and for some reason it was colder at 7:30 in the morning than it was all night. well we all get hugs bye and the chicks left the dudes to their appointments today.

after we got back to the Dub, we went to Ihop for breakfast!! then came home and passed out at 9:30 in the morning!!

hince why Random Trips to Myrtle Beach at 1:30 are fun with 3 drunk boys and 3 sober chicks!!

omg!!! if you are ever in Wilmington, look up this band called ASG, aka the Amplification of Self-Gratification, if you want to use the longer version.  they are a major rock band down here, and i figured out why tonight.

its a little club call the Soapbox, which is a really neat place.  the place is pretty crowded, but nowhere near the size of the first college night of the new year.  anyway, i met part of the band, aka, Sammys cousin, and a bunch of people that she knew.  its all fun, and i was 4 inches taller!! but now my feet hurt like hell.  but once they hit the stage, everybody and their brother was there moshing up front, and boy their fun to watch.  i met some cute guys, and i was going to give one my number, but i never saw him again. oh well...

the band fucking rocks.  thats all i can say....they so rock.  i would love to see them again, but this time with flip flops instead.

any who, Rock on Homies!!
