Now I Am That Funky Soldier, And I Shall Be Free

It's been a while, I know, I'm a horrible person.
Actually that's a lie, I'm awesome.
There's a lot to be said here:
First of all I realized I NEVER said what my favorite albums of 07 were, so...
1)Bloc Party- A Weekend in the City
2)Lily Allen- Alright, Still
3)Amy Winehouse- Back to Black
4)Kanye West- Graduation
5)M.I.A.- Kala
6)Timbaland- Shock Value
7)Tegan & Sara- The Con
8)Fall Out Boy- Infinity on High
9)Britney Spears- Blackout
10)Cobra Starship-Viva La Cobra!

Best Song of 07: "Flux" by Bloc Party

Best Soundtrack: "I'm Not There"

Say what you will about it, I will stand by it. Every last one of them.

Secondly, NIU...
I'm not going to say a lot about it, because I'm still in shock over it, but, two of my best friends go there. This whole thing hit waaaaaay too close to home. Northern isn't that far from where I'm from, and where I live now. It's scary to me.
A year ago, if you would have said "school shooting" to me, I would have thought three things: Columbine, high school, and personal.
And then Virgina Tech happened.
Then all of a sudden, I felt like it was following us.
It feels like every week, it's something new. And it's not high school anymore, it's college. It's not personal anymore, it's random. I just don't understand what's going on in this world.

If anything would have happened to Billy or Alex, I honestly don't know what I would do.

Oh, and my mother got engaged.
And she's been engaged for two weeks now, and has made no effort to tell me.
Welcome to my life.

Oo and I dyed my hair!
It's light brown/red/fab.

Love.
