Hello everyone. My friends, strangers, whoever feels the need to view this :P I haven't been active on here forever and am just wondering who still is. I just never have the time anymore for UG sad as that is i'm bored now so i wanna know who still is and what they are up to?
Heres what happened. Two of my friends and I were out driving on tuesday afternoon around 5:30-6. My one friend had a really rough day so my other friend and I hung out with her and just drove around to help her. We were driving really fast on some country roads near where I live like normal teenagers do around here. We came up over a hill and 10-15 meters ahead of us the road turned to lose gravel my friend driving hit the brakes to try and slow down but it didn't slow enough. We hit the gravel hill going very fast (at least it seemed that way, turned out it was only 50 km/h) and immediately fish tailed part way down the hill...... then did a 180 degree spin.......... then hit the ditch....... then rolled onto the roof.... and came to a stop. If anything had happened any differently any or all of us could have died or been seriously hurt. We were all wearing seatbelts which probably saved our lives. So we sat there for about 1/2 of a second thinking "shit we just had an accident" then immediately climed out one of the front windows and headed to the top of the hill where I remembered seeing a house. Luckily we were friends with the guy who lived there from school and his parents called the emergency services. It was the scariest experience of my life. Bar none. Right now I could be dead. Thats how fragile life is and how quickly things can change for anyone. We were extremely lucky to walk out from that wreck with nothing more than a few scretches and bruises. I want to tell everyone this. Seatbelts do save lives. One saved mine. Never forget to use them. And make sure you realize how easily everything can change when the shit gets too real.
After this Thursday I appreciate life more than ever. You never know when it will be taken..... cause thats exactly what happened. Everybody knows the guy at school that is friends with everybody and everybody likes. It always ends up that he is the one who is taken so suddenly. In a flash you have a friend one minute and the next you don't. Its that simple. And theres nothing you can do about it cause it was truely an accident. So you must go on. You can't spend your life wondering what could've happened or changed because shit happens and it always will. Now I cherish every moment with the peole I love, take nothing for granted and accept the fact that everything could be taken in an instant. But not dwell on it. From this I will live life to the fullest, never turn down an oppertunity to experience something new and always remember the friend who I lost this wednesday.
Does anyone out there feel there parents are old fashioned? First of I love my parents, don't get me wrong, they are great people. But they are older and I feel they are old fashioned. No facebook, MSN, piercing (just got the no for that now, prompted this posting), hanging with friends on school nights, in my bedroom at 10, it goes on and on. I know they have their reasons and I get that but the reasons are all the same, either they "don't understand what it is", "disagree with the idea", or are against it and will only say "becasuse I said so". I'm not trying to complain, just wanna get thoughts out there and see if anyone has similar experiences.
Well, what I would call a first draft of the song is done. Lyrics and a guitar part. It would probably be considered a punk song. I was listening to alot of Rise Against while writing the guitar to this song. Anyways the singer for our band (I'm in a band now) is going to take a look at singing the song and try and get the feel I'm looking for. Then we will worry about writing a bass and drum part. I think its going to turn out really well.
