“Do you think the dictionary ever says to itself
I’ve got these words that mean completely
different things inside myself
and it’s tearing me apart?”—Dean Young, from “Selected Recent and New Errors,” in Fall Higher (Copper Canyon Press, 2012)
“And it has been
of a year.
I have worn
under my sleeves,
on my thighs,
running down my cheeks.
This is what
looks like, my dear.”—Michelle K., It Has Been One Hell of a Year. (via flannel)
Going home this weekend was one of the best decisions I made. Totally worth the total 16 hours of butt numbing bus rides.
The hot chocolate at 5 am when we first arrived in the wintery feel of SF was pretty amazing cause of the contrast of feeling cold and tired but warm and alive at the same time.
Doing nothing was pretty refreshing. My education class tells me to let yourself relax completely if you choose to, because having assignments hang over your head and worries is counterproductive. I didn’t even bring my laptop home.
Frozen is a really good movie btw. Soundtrack is on point. Splurging on the 3D-ness and popcorn with extra butter and a large slurpee made the experience that much more enriching LOL.
Now I’m back and I’m excited to crank out these next 2 weeks filled with catching up on my classes, The Bridge competition, and finals. Ready to work harder and smarter :)
Once upon a time I told my roomie that sometimes I think I have an ugly personality because sometimes I have ugly thoughts about people and she told me that everyone probably does except they don’t admit it. Then I said my personality just got prettier from admitting it but it probably went back down from thinking that it got prettier LOL I love how honest we are with each other HAHA.
“The next time I feel the urge to criticize I will ask myself two questions: given the same circumstances and no hindsight would I have done better, and who asked me for my opinion in the first place?”—The Zen Humanist (via rainydaysandblankets)
