"Connector" by A Lot Like Birds [Pandora finds pretty stuff]

I'M MAD AT MYSELF, I WOKE UP HALF PAST NOON AGAIN.
I stayed up until near four in the morning again, ugh, why can't I just go to sleep?
I did find a new podcast, though.
I like to have certain things in order to sleep comfortably. I prefer to be cold, for one thing. I like sleeping either on my stomach or on my back, not my side. Listening to some kind of white noise is also helpful, but I usually go without it during the winter. I also like to listen to podcasts while going to sleep.
That's partly why I was so into Welcome To Night Vale. Don't get me wrong, I still loooveee that show but I don't know, I'm kind of behind on a few episodes now. The great thing about Welcome To Night Vale was its ambiguity but as it goes on, it gets more and more specific.
Now, there are almost rules in this weird world they've created and I don't know, I guess I just don't like it as much. I like the episodes where you feel like you've just been flung into someone else's life, someone else's day. You're just kinda left going, "?????????"
That's why my favorite episodes tend to be the ones that lack explanation, haha.
But anyway! I just found this new podcast and I'M SO EXCITED. It's called Lore and the tagline is, "SOMETIMES THE TRUTH IS MORE FRIGHTENING THAN FICTION."
Isn't that attractive??
Here's the summary:
"Lore is a bi-weekly podcast about true life scary stories.
The people, places, and things of our darkest nightmares all have real facts at their core. Each episode of Lore looks into a uniquely scary tale and uncovers the truth behind it.
Sometimes the truth is more frightening than fiction."
What annoys me about this is that they say it's bi-weekly. Bi-weekly literally has two definitions. It can mean twice a month and twice a week. You'd think it'd just be the last one but nooo, english just wants to fuck you over one more time. It IS twice a month, though.
LET ME TELL YOU WHY I LOVE THIS, THOUGH.
YOU SHOULD KNOW BY NOW THAT I AM A BIG FAN OF MYTHOLOGY. WHICH IS WHY I LOVE HEARING ABOUT PEOPLE'S SUPERSTITIONS AND FREAKY STORIES!!!
MYTHOLOGY/STORIES ARE HONESTLY MY FAVORITE PARTS OF HISTORY. WELL, MOST OF THE TIME. THIS PODCAST IS ABOUT REAL LIFE EVENTS BUT THEY'RE VERY INTERESTING AND WOOWWWW I LIKE IT.
I'm really excited!
DO YOU KNOW WHAT SOMEONE SAID TO ME??
This is probably one of the nicest things I've ever heard. Just in case you didn't know, Athena is one of my nicknames.
"You are the sleeping sky pilot. LOL Athena the cute. Athena the hot. Athena, the star in waiting. Athena the loving one. Athena the sun rising in the east. Athena the hero to be."
You know, I should probably find a name for you. If you read this, let me know what you want me to call you.
MORE GOOD NEWS:
I found my Mandarin Lip gloss!!! Over spring break, I bought this expensive (it was literally like six dollars for a tube???? because it was organic but still, we should really do something about that whole "better for the earth costs more money" thing. does this make sense) lip gloss... Sorry, I lost track of what I was saying because of that long parentheses rant.
ANyway, I actually wrote about it once on April 11. I don't know why I remember the date, but I actually JUST realized that that was also the day I found out about Elise. Exactly two months from her birthday :/ coincidence??? Probably.
I DON'T KNOW WHEN I LOST IT, BUT IT'S DELICIOUS. KISS ME AND YOU'LL TASTE IT. BUT IT'S LIP GLOSS AND I DON'T KNOW HOW PLEASANT IT IS TO KISS LIPS COVERED IN JELLY-LIKE SUBSTANCES.
I forgot to mention this, but the other day I got feedback from someone who knew Elise. He didn't know she died, though.
Oh god, it was so sad.
It's funny because even though I had the saaaame reaction like two months ago, I had no idea how to help him? Especially since we don't know each other.
Elise and I were virtual strangers. Does that mean you can't be sad when one of you dies? I honestly don't know and don't care to dwell on it because it doesn't fix anything.
I hope that dude is alright.
Okay, later. For now, I need to actually clean my room.
I've mostly finished building my computer thing. As soon as I move my desk back into my room, which I can't do until you can see the floor (it's a disaster), I can set it up and hopefully use it??
I'm a lucky gal.
I just walked in on my sister naked but I wasn't wearing my glasses so all I saw was a blob of shouting flesh tone. THAT WAS PROBABLY THE FUNNIEST THING TO HAPPEN TO ME TODAY HAHA.
(thank u, glasses, for being gross and dirty enough to necessitate your cleaning just as I was walking into the bathroom)
