"the way"  

They made up their minds

And they started packing

They left before the sun came up that day

An exit to eternal summer slacking

But where were they going without ever

Knowing the way?



They drank up the wine

And they got to talking

They now had more important things to say

And when the car broke down they started walking

Where were they going without ever

Knowing the way?




Anyone can see the road that they walk on

Is paved in gold

And it's always summer

They'll never get cold

They'll never get hungry

They'll never get old and grey

You can see their shadows wandering off somewhere

They won't make it home

But they really don't care

They wanted the highway

They're happier there today, today



Their children woke up

And they couldn't find them

They left before the sun came up that day

They just drove off and left it all behind 'em

But where were they going without ever

Knowing the way?


Anyone can see the road that they walk on

Is paved in gold

And it's always summer

They'll never get cold

They'll never get hungry

They'll never get old and grey

You can see their shadows wandering off somewhere

They won't make it home

But they really don't care

They wanted the highway

They're happier there today, today

i love that song, "the way" by fastball. but it has a sad story to it. in case you can't pick it from the lyrics, it's a [[true]] story about these 2 parents, who left the house one morning and drove off a cliff, leaving their children alone. it's so sad. ian told me about it. i really want to hear the fastball cd. one day. i love songs with a meaning to it.

i went job hunting with kristy today, or rather, i went with kristy for moral support while she went job hunting. berought back memories, that's for sure, and not neccessarily good ones either - the end of last year [well, july-october] going around to all the stores in the malls and asking them if they hired casuals and then asking to leave a resume there for them in case anything came up in the future. i'm glad i don't have to do that again for awhile, at least i hope not. it's all too depressing and draining. but i guess in the end it's worth it. kinda.

two and a half days to go until i leave. i'm getting nervous. only a little bit though. what if angela and i don't get along as well while living together as we do through letters and phone calls? or what if her parents don't like me? or if i run out of money? just the usual paranoia. it'll go away once i meet her, i'm sure. i hope.

my friends are taking me out for tea tomorrow night. we're going to this chinese restaurant near the beach. not only do they serve really nice chinese food and they're reasonably priced, but that place is one of the first places our group went to when we first started hanging out together. it was the second weekend we went out together - it was me, sarah, kristy, russell and greg - and we went to that restaurant and then went and water- bombed the air cadets who were training a few streets away. it's a long story, but it always makes me smile. it reminds me of all the fun times i had with my friends. it reminds me that there are still more fun times to come.
