Curveballs and Straight Heat

Just so that everyone knows those are both baseball terms...they're both pitches...so when you read Straight Heat think of a fastball not of something that all you people with minds in the gutters are thinking

Just when you think that you know what's going on and you're finding your groove, your comfortable place...here comes the curveball and it knocks you off your balance...you expected something right over the plate not something that falls into the dirt like the meatloaf mom made last week...and that only happened once...even though it was on purpose...don't eat my mom's meatloaf ever!!! After the curveball you have no idea what's going on and you're not sure what's coming next and then it happens

Straight Heat that when you swing at it you're so far behind that the pitcher's almost ready to throw you another one and you gotta hope that you're ready for what he's got cuz otherwise you're going to lose your balance again...and we all know that in life we don't want to lose our balance...we want to stand steady and look strong cuz there's no vulnerability allowed...that's how i feel sometimes...like weakness is not allowed even though we all have'em...you have to keep your head high and walk through it all and never let them knock you down...it sounds like a bad motivational speech from a movie i know but this is how i've felt for a little bit now

I apologize for the Baseball analogy...if you'd like you can use hockey...be the goalie start with a bad deflection and skip to the slapshot...football the QB blows the ball past you for a big gain but next play runs the ball over you...basketball takes you to the hoop and slams it on you, 3pointer over your head next play...if you have another sport throw that in and make your own analogy

Late Night Thoughts

I got a call this morning at 2:44 this morning to let Mr. Hockey into Dorm cuz he just got dropped off...i didn't know by whom or what but he didn't have his keys and came quickly into dorm wearing spandex as he later informed me...but as i got back into bed i had couple things come into my head

Like why on earth have i had writer's block for 6 months...well outside of one song...why won't the words come to me anymore they used to be in abundance and now i can just write the riffs to songs in my head...but unfortunately that's where they stay...is it that i have nothing that inspires me?...well that can't be...i guess the one song shoots that idea down...is it because i'll know that from now on it'll be solo and i don't have a band to go back to?...i'm at an impass it seems that i can't go over, around, under or through...and i don't carry the explosives that will help me get rid of this impass of sorts...cuz really if i don't get these songs written then what will i be able to do for the writer's showcase?...Suggestions would be good

Lately a friend and i have been talking about getting old (20)...it seems like this plateau in age that's huge and seems like a lot of responsibility is put on your shoulders...cuz as i've been told once you're 20 you can't blame the stupid mistakes you make on being a teenager cuz you're clearly not a teenager anymore...and teen angst is no longer teen angst but depression or jsut being stupid as some have called it...is a number that depicts our age so important...or is it just the weight we put on it?

i don't know i thought of a lot at 3 in the morning...and i was more a wake after 3 hours of sleep then during my class with 8 hours of sleep...go figure
