I'm a Blog virgin

I'm a blog virgin, but i'm about to be deflowered so enjoy ...

I admit, that only a few short days ago, I thought blocs were ridiculous creations for self serving ego maniacs. Don't kill me after that highly misinformed statement...


I was inspired by Zach Braff''s Garden State blog because it is out of this world. I also found out that someone that really rocked my world has a blogpage too. And in his blog, I am not a name, but an 'among others...if that'. So I guess im just licking my wounds. jk. Where's my Ben and Jerrys?? (Do you feel me, ladies?)

Ive decided to listen to Radiohead whenever I do my blog because you could be doing the dishes , with Radiohead's "a kid" playing in the background and feel like the most amazing
Indie movie star at the exact moment when they discover themselves.lol. That album just rocks my world and obviously im just a little bit too in love with "Garden state".

Right now, this blog isn't completely me. I guess you could liken it to filming a reality show, and your concious of the camara's, concious that people will be scrutinizing your words or ideas or whatever. But soon eneough you'll be thinking, 'okay too much information'.lol.

I guess my blog will be about whatever. It's not going to be padded with sarcasm or witicsm clever things like that, but i'll try to keep it as interesting and real as possible. I'm gonna sign this off with my second favorite name ever: Nico. She was this amazingly erethral lead singer for the Andy Warhol-foudned group 'The velvet underground'. Maybe someday i'll talk about my real favorite name...but that would involve a big, horribly romantic plight. (how's that for a hook?)
I'm out,

~Nico~

The coming of age

Hey this is my first blog of many more to come... enjoy.

I just turned 18 this Saturday, but really, all the hype surrounding your 18th is all noise. Ive
been sneeking into clubs and stuff since I was 16,, as well as particpating in other choice activites. So what is it about 18 that is so great?
I guess if your planning on working at Esso for the rest of your days, 18 is just another notch on the wall.
But I don't intend on doing that. When I was 17 I left home. I went back just a little while ago, and it was surreal. It's like your parens aren't your parents anymore, there just people who hung around for 17 years.
When I was 17 I fell in love, twice. Man, love does things to your head. But most of all, if it doesn't destroy you, it helps you understand more about yourself.
When I was 17, I realized that I knew how to pay the bills, get a job, live with people other than my family. I didn't just survive....i rocked the world.
Being 18 is amazing, because it gives you a chance to look back and say: I've survived alot. It makes you feel strong and, I can honestly say, I am less afraid of the future,as an 18 year old, than I was only one short year ago.
At 18 you are not just another extension of your family...for the first time, you are just yourself.
And that is an amazing feeling....
Oh yeah, getting wasted on your 18th birthday is just the cherry on the cake:)
