you're a goth if
May 17, 2002 07:09 AM

I keep repeating this series of random, miniscule, depressions. It's likely a result of the stack of deliberately undone things surrounding me.

And so. We're moving in about a month. We need boxes and cleaning and all those sorts of things. I've managed to spend the majority of my paycheck in only two days. It's both impressive and sad, particularly as my paycheck isn't that small and most of the spending was bills.

Though I did spend a hundred dollars on a combination of hair and makeup. Not frivolous hair and makeup, either. Not frivolous in my mind, at least. Alright, frivolous. An argument can be made for needing foundation (so as not to look unprofessional at work) but not for needing to buy it at Sephora. It's really a shame that none of the drugstore or even cheaper department store lines make something light enough.

Is that a "You're a goth if..." question? You're a goth if you have to spend more money in order to get light enough foundation for your and your deathly pallor? Except, of course, I'm not. Though I'm sure I'd answer yes to a large number of the you're a goth if questions. I share with the goth stereotype a fondness for fashion and a penchant to overspend on frivolous things. For instance, an eggplant ballgown.

I find myself thinking in the language of Agamemnon. The text of the play we're performing in two weeks. This is a good thing, as I keep failing to remember lines, and it means - at least - I'll be able to make up words that sound like the actual text would sound if only I knew it.

And I keep having these moments of everything is horrible. Only everything isn't. The vast majority of my little world is getting on remarkably well.

I've decided, by the way, that there's no point to keeping a journal if you won't write in it. I suppose that serves as a promise to write more often.
