I'm procrastinating, but it's ok, I'll make up for it during class, instead of zoning out like I usually do. I slept about 9 hours last night, so yeah, I'm feelin pretty good. Hair in a braid, sportin that new fleece - turquoise, mind you, so it's extra awesome.

For the most part, I'm caught up, so I'm takin a moment to breathe, to look around. Because someday, when I'm finally "there", I'm going to miss this place, and these people. Might as well enjoy what I have, while it's here.

Few things last forever, why live like they do?

I needed this kind of hope <3

Look Closely

This morning,
I saw a streak of a rainbow amidst the fog.

If you look,
you'll find the colors
between the gray

One Foot in Front of the Other

Today at work, I stopped homework to teach the kids how to draw mustaches on their fingers.

And then we sat there saying things such as " 'ello poppet!" and "cheerio" and giggling like fools.

They help me remember, life is as simple as you make it.

Life will always be hard, always take work --

But you can either sit and complain,

Or accept it and keep moving.

Worth it

Right when you think you're gonna go crazy,
hole up in your bedroom 
with a whole bunch of chocolate,

you have a shoot that makes you smile.

And it's all worth it again.

a Signature, forgotten

last night, I dug out an old box

dusty and stuffed full,
of all my writings
as a little girl.

I laughed at the simple phrasing,
and the over dramatic emotions,
shook my head at the countless plays
I made my brothers be in.

So many words from a girl
somedays I hardly remember

the part i loved the most though,
was finding Bryan's signature
on an old play -

sloppy, tilted cursive
Bryan Meyer

and I cried,
to find a hidden piece of him
among the forgotten pieces of myself.

Well Said

“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”
ee cummings

this man has my heart-
i gave up long ago, trying to make sense of his words,
but rather,
enjoy the power they have 
to express,
what I cannot.

let them have Normal

I let myself get all twisted and knotted,
wrapped and wrestled,
trying to be what I think I should be --

when it occurs to me,
it's not even what I want.

What I want, is something different,
my own road, my own story, 
my own way. 

So it's not the normal thing to do... 

Normal seems overrated anyways.

But I'm still a dreamer, a believer
                          Oh, I've lost my faith in so many things, but I still believe in You
-Sanctus Real

as long as you keep walking
and dreaming
and believing.

That's all that really matters

a Reminder:

If the people in your life aren't encouraging you,
pushing you,
loving you,
supporting you,
accepting you...

you may need some new people in your life.

Life is too short to be surrounded by people who make you doubt yourself  =)
