all in all... a sucky year.

right girls?!

i'm blaming it on the fact that it's an odd number. i don't like things that come in odd numbers... [unless it's a 3, or the volume on my radio.] i tried to take an inventory of the good things that came out of this year and all i really got was:
- an apartment full of amazing forever-friends,
- an official graduation "plan" that's looking like it will stick, and
- the new record length of time i've gone without hurting myself.

so, while those are pretty great things, i just don't feel as though 2009 did everything it could for me. i had to learn way too many life lessons the hard way. it's a good thing there's only a couple days left, or i don't know what i would have done...

think about these quotes for a minute.
they kind of inspire me.

"You can't deny laughter; when it comes, it plops down in your favorite chair and stays as long as it wants." [Stephen King]

"The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of because words diminish your feelings - words shrink things that seem timeless when they are in your head to no more than living size when they are brought out." [Stephen King]

"The place where you made your stand never mattered. Only that you were there... and still on your feet." [Stephen King]

"Much unhappiness has come into the world because of bewilderment and things left unsaid." [Fyodor Dostoevsky]

"Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them." [Albert Einstein]

i only kind of believe you.

i had a dream last night -
we drove out to see las vegas.
we lost ourselves in the bright lights.
i wish you could have seen us -
begging for change to get home.
or at least [san diego.]


please don't tell me that i'm dreaming -
when all i ever wanted was to dream another sunset with you.
if i roll over when it's over -
i'll take this [rexburg] sunrise with me.
and wake up with the fondest memories.


sunsets never were so bright -
and the skies never so blue.
you opened up into my arms -
and we laughed as I held you.

...takes the scenic route from the sky to the ground. it just sorta floats around, taking everything in before it decides to land.

i think snowflakes were made to stay in the air, not to pile up all over streets and sidewalks, rooftops and trampolines. but gravity just doesn't think anything should be allowed to be that free.

stupid gravity.
