you keep getting older
AND THEY KEEP GETTING YOUNGER.
Day 9 - Someone I Would Like To Meet
There are a lot of people I’d like to meet. The problem is, they’re all dead. I’d love to sit with Mae West and ask her how she got the courage to be an independent, witty woman on the screen before such a thing was accepted. I wish I could speak with my great-grandparents and ask them what is was like to emigrate to the United States after their farm was taken by the Nazis. ...
Day 8 - Internet Friend
I don’t have an internet friend. :( HAJKILIKEREALPEOPLE.
Starting HCG Diet tomorrow
This will be an interesting experiment. Basically you take HCG while eating a low calorie diet. It’s supposed to target abnormal fat deposits (such as hips, arms, butt, etc) but it also functions as a cleansing diet. So not only do I hope to lose the ten pounds I’ve gained since leaving high school, but I’m also hoping that it’ll put me back on track with eating healthy...
Day 7 - Ex
Dear Ex, You messed with my mind. You messed with my heart. But it’s okay. Dating you helped me learn who I needed to be with. And I couldn’t be happier. I’m glad that I had you to teach me what I should never put up with. Not everything was bad. Especially with you, Phil. I learned a lot from you. What we had was real. We just weren’t ready. And we weren’t right...
My new project:
watching classic movies. So far I’ve watched “How to Marry a Millionaire” and “The Seven-Year Itch.”
Day 6 - Stranger
Dear Stranger, I’m afraid of you. I’m sorry. If you speak to me, I will reply. But I will never be one to seek out a conversation with someone I don’t know. It’s not that I don’t think your life is important and meaningful. It’s not that I would rather focus on myself. I’m afraid of those who don’t know me, because those are the people who are not...
“What Happens to a Dream Deferred? Does it Shrivel Up like a Raisin in the Sun? Or Fester like a Sore and then Run? Does it Stink like Rotten Meat? Or Crust and Sugar Over like a Syrupy Sweet? Maybe It Just Sags like a Heavy Load. —Or Does it Explode?” —Langston Hughes
Day 5 - Dreams
(I’m really bad at keeping on track..) Dear Dreams, Whoohoo! My dreams are coming true. With a lot of hard work. Here I am, in my apartment in Portland, after finishing my first year of college/working part time with a 3.5! But seriously, there is soooo much more I have to accomplish to “achieve my dreams.” The list of dreams I am waiting to reach is almost endless. I still...
on hot days like this
all “dressing like a slut” rules are null and void.
Day 4 - Matthew
Dearest little bro, Matthew Dean, MD, etc… I love you so much. I’m sorry for all the times I teased you, wouldn’t let you play with my toys, or cheated at Monopoly without your knowledge. But I also remember all of the fun times we had together. I remember countless summer days playing baseball in the backyard (okay, so I may have cheated at that too…), having water...
Day 3 - Dad
Dear Dad, Thank you for everything. I remember when I was little, the most exciting part of the day was when you would come home from work so I could get a hug. You were the parent that I sought approval from, and thought it was special when I got to watch the news with you on the couch. That childish belief that nothing could touch Dad fell apart five years ago. For a while there, I was afraid...
Day 2 - Crush
Dear Crush, Nothing was ever so appropriately named. You’ve led me to so many heartbreaks. I’ve been humiliated and hurt many times because of you. But the relationships that actually formed from crushes were worth it. Another thing that I can thank you for are the numerous lessons I’ve learned from your bad influence when it came from falling for the wrong guy. Thanks for...
i wonder what i look like
to people who aren’t me. ???
I always thought that looking thru someone’s iTune was the best way to get to know them, so here’s mine. How many songs total: 3670 How many hours or days of music: 9.7 Days. First song: A-Punk - Vampire Weekend Last song: 99 Luftballoons - Nena Sort by time: Shortest song: Jacksonville - Sufjan Stevens Longest song: Marais la Nuit - Neko Case (I would like to point out that this song...
k-lalala: The most important thing I’ve learned since leaving high school is… They don’t teach anything how they should in school. No kidding. I feel like college is a little better, depending on the teacher. My Democracy professor was the best instructor I’ve ever had. No bullshit, just real information that I actually feel helped me grow as a person and a student.
