The first part of the title of my mix is French for, "I don't give a fuck." My reasoning for this is that I have included a few songs that may seem weird for me. This mix selection of tracks is slightly bipolar in nature, which is exciting for me. The second part alludes to the Portishead track found on the mix, but also to the strange event that has been my life as of recently.

Long story short: things are very different. I'm somewhat of a jailbird these days. Not really. But I have spent a couple nights in jail since February, both times by the same cop, and both times for nonsensical reasons. My school dropped me from a class because I didn't pay for it on time. And now, thanks to the judicial system, I won't be getting back in it.

I'll admit, a few good things have happened for which I am very thankful: I got a really great job, Justin came back to Texas, and my friends and I have reunited in a healthy way. But aside from those things, I've been catching up on sleep a great deal, just so I'm not thinking about money and school. Some of the following are songs that have been getting me through this shit with a smile. Others just fit too well with this brain-tornado to not be included.

Track 9 from So Jealous
Length: 00:02:58
Year: 2004
Track Description:
"I get so jealous, I can't even work...I don't know how it's become such a problem, keep you up all night if I try to remain calm. How can they ask why I feel so angry?"

I was in an online relationship for a long time, like 3 years. The boy broke my heart, and my trust, when I found out he had a girlfriend where he lived. We are friends now and we've spoken about this. He recognizes that what he did to me then has really fucked with my personal life to this day. I get incredibly possessive and I like to be in control. It has been really hard to reverse my ways, but I am slowly learning to not care so much. I am finally beginning to feel free.

All of the above are true. What's ridiculous is I know this but I'm too masochistic to quit doing this shit to myself.

I used to be a very different girl. Now I'm learning what it is to be a woman. I have a lot of growing up to do but it's happening fast. Though I like some things I used to be, there are definitely improvements to be made.

"What's the matter? Why don't you answer? What's the matter with me?...Another season, but the same old feelings, another season should be. I'm tired of aching, summer's what you make it, but I'll believe what I want to believe..."

I keep trying to make every summer add up to the beauty that was the summer of 2006. I'm learning that you can't just base everything on one great experience. 2010 has been a really fucked up year so far, but it is summer, and I should try to make the best of it."

I love Lady Gaga. Say anything negative in regards to this fact and I will rip off your dick and throw it into the sun.

She inspires me to be this strong, capable woman. I am really trying.

Track Description:
"You'll wreck if I let you"

This vocals in this song sound so strained and serious. I like this line in particular because it holds up to my situation. It's about being willing to do anything for a person. You solely help them trudge along all while they are ungrateful, and clueless as to how things would be without you.

Love the first four tracks and Mira is great, great, great. The cover art really pops out of the frame.

I was really into that QoSA song a few years back. It has that heavy rock funk vibe to it and I seem to remember sticking on a mix or two.

Sorry to hear Johnny Law has it in for you.

I hope things turn around for you this summer.
