10 Things We All Must Figure Out for Ourselves
thresca: Love – There is no official guide for falling in love, falling out of love, or dealing with the emotional intricacies of love. Love cannot be taught and it certainly cannot be forced. Love is an instinctual feeling, a powerful sentiment, one we will all find under different circumstances and must each figure out for ourselves. Friendship – Some personalities simply click and others...

whoaineedyou: stare-at-walls: finallyseeing: Regret nothing. Not the cruel novels you read to the end just to find out who killed the cook. Not the insipid movies that made you cry in the dark, in spite of your intelligence, your sophistication. Not the lover you left quivering in a hotel parking lot, the one you beat to the punchline, the door, or the one who left you in your red dress and...
This is the love I send overseas...
P.S. Remember that time we got drunk and you totally made out with me? Yeah, that’s what I thought. :) (Via an email I sent to a friend in Iraq)

Church is overrated. If I want to be criticized once a week about how I live my daily life, how I’m not doing enough to enrich myself, and how basically every decision I am making for myself isn’t the best one; I’m not going to waste an entire morning being berated in church. That’s why I call my mother every Sunday.

Things I'm doing this A.M.
-Crushing on Michelle Obama -Going to Jewel so I won’t starve. -Maybe treating myself to a donut while I’m there. -Getting $10 worth of quarters so I can do my laundry before school begins next week. -Laying around on the couch and watching Saved By The Bell reruns.

I don’t understand why a lot of people want to put some celebrities up on a pedestal; to look up to them like that’s something everyone should aspire to become. I think people idolize certain celebrities, justify them to perfection in their minds, then...
Ten Rules for Being Human
therandomnessofyes: erickd: tatunga: rahulioizm: 1. You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it’s yours to keep for the entire period. 2. You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called, “life.” 3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial, error, and experimentation. The “failed” experiments are as much...
I played (tossed?) a frisbee this evening at a park near my apartment. I didn’t do too badly, and it reminded me how much I miss playing sports. I remember in high school when it was hard for me to sit down and not being doing something athletic all the time. I miss those days. I want to get back into that habit.
Dear Einstein Bros. Bagels,
When I am generous enough to frequent your establishment for breakfast, please try harder not to fuck everything up. 1. My friend ordered a HAM on Asiago, not turkey. The receipt will back me up on this. They aren’t simialr in sound or spelling. 2. I specifically said, “I’ll have a plain bagel with egg and cheese only, no bacon. Thank you.” What did I receive? A plain...

It wouldn't be Friday without a little LiLo.
You have to admit, the girl can pull off a sultry pose.
This has been my life for the past month.

HEADPHONES ON LOCK
Must the gentlemen (douche-bags) who live below me blare heavy metal during every Cubs game? I’m usually not a party pooper, but heavy guitar riffs and shitty drumming doesn’t sound as great as it would THROUGH YOUR HEADPHONES. If you want to blast something, at least make it worthwhile. I know you think Chevelle is the shit, but how about some Snow Patrol or Iron & Wine? By the...
I read 286 pages in Twilight yesterday after purchasing it at Target. It’s been quite a while since I have found a book that I couldn’t put down. I get completely invested in Stephanie Meyer’s writing. I’ll probably be making a second trip to Target today to buy book 2, New Moon, in this series. It’s little things like this that keep my mind off the fact that I am...
ORANGE YOU GLAD I DIDN'T SAY BANANA?
My orange from Whole Foods was gross this morning. Very bitter. I’m more disappointed than I should be. It was my breakfast, afterall.
nerdalert: mysunshine: “I hope that someday, somebody wants to hold you for twenty minutes straight, and that’s all they do. They don’t pull away. They don’t look at your face. They don’t try to kiss you. All they do is wrap you up in their arms, without an ounce of selfishness in it.”
HOME SWEET HOME
hiiamblair: Coworker: “They stoled the baby.” Please take your train back to Indiana. I’m from Indiana, and I’m not even offended by this because 1) it couldn’t be more true and 2) that is one of my biggest pet peeves.
