Not all those who wander are lost

I was raised on the principles laid out in the Quran and Dale Carnegie's How to Make Friends and Influence People. None of it took very well, but one thing I did come away with--the most important person in a conversation between you and me is YOU (Carnegie, 10). This diary is a conversation between me and myself. Finally, I am allowing myself to be the most important thing. This scares me. Try and enjoy it.

My favorite music:

poetic teenage angst:
comments: sometimes i still like to wallow in it. that is why i like: nirvana, counting crows, the smiths, pearl jam, U2 (ok, this doesn't necessarily belong here)
slow and mellow:
comments: billy holiday, patsy cline, edith piaf, mazzy star, cheb khalid, outlandish
loud and fast:
comments: flogging molly, nirvana (yeah, bitch, it's in here twice), no doubt
A little hip for my hop:
comments: missy eliot, ludacris, tweet, sean paul, camron (pretty much just "hey ma"), snoop, eminem
i even like country:
comments: yeah shut up--randy travis, early shania twain, trisha yearwood, dixie chicks
