You said something vague tonight. Then, when I asked you to explain, you didn’t. You left me hanging from the tips of your words, wondering. What did you mean by that? Are we on the same page, our thoughts running the same circuits, our lives beginning to blend into one story? Was I right to get excited, to read endless amounts of promises and futures in that simple, abstract statement? Was...
I WILL be watching the oscars this year ONLY bc James Franco is hosting it. His smile makes me melt. Well…Anne Hathaway is pretty awesome too, I guess.
Busy is the Name of the Game
Busy. Yeah. That’s all I ever have time for anymore: being busy. Eighteen college units and employment at Barnes and Noble simultaneously. Meaning that my current social life is almost at zero. Now add on top of the previously mentioned data the fact that I just hooked a tutoring gig that will take up about two hours of my time monday through friday. What do you get? If your calculations are...
I’m not looking for someone who’s gonna give his heart to the world....– Olivia Dunham in Fringe Season 2: “Brown Betty”
12:22 a.m. Pulling into the driveway after a closing shift at work. Radio turned up loud. Begin to turn off the car when that song comes on. The one you just can’t resist singing to even though you are exhausted. Leave the key in the ignition. The car idles in the driveway as you sing your loudest (but not necessarily your best). Instrumental break. Commence embarrassing dance moves....
“We wandered from room to room, just missing one another, on paths neither chosen by us nor random, but determined by our own particular characteristics, our own properties, unable to deviate, to break from our orbital loops, unable to do something as simple as walking into the next room where our beloved, our father, our mother, our child, our wife, our husband, was sitting, silent, waiting...

According to National Geographic Kids “Weird but True 2” a litter of kittens is also called a kindle. Hmmm nice try Amazon, but I hate cats so your strange attempt to get me to buy a Kindle simply because of the cute factor of its name has failed.
A Word of Warning
That awkward moment when your cousin’s ex-boyfriend who was like a big brother to you before he turned into a jerk pops up on facebook chat. The moment you look at it and think “well shit”. The decision you make to be civil, to ignore him completely, or to tear him to pieces with your scathing words and finish by telling him to fuck off. You choose to be civil because ignoring...

Selections from "I Like You" by Sandol Stoddard...
Here is the book that Romeo would have given Juliet, Charlie Brown would have given Snoopy, and you can give to some very special friend. I like you and I know why. I like you because you are a good person to like. I like you because when I tell you something special you know it’s special and you remember it a long long time. When I think something is important you think it’s important too. We...
Cold Shoulders and Biting Silence
I find it strange how the mere threat of you leaving and things changing has as much impact as the leaving and changing itself might ever have. The perceived impending doom throws a shadow over everything. Happy moments are tinged gray with the gloomy thoughts of what is to come. Arguments are triggered by the slightest occurences. We are both sitting on land mines, afraid to make a move that will...

Making Lists is Fun
5 Weird Things that I Love: The smell of chlorine. When I’m driving and I manage to change lanes without hitting any of the reflector bumps. The sound of a credit card or gift card when I swipe it really fast. The way my toes burn when I take a hot shower after being really cold. Goldfish smiles (the snack type). 5 Weird Things that I Hate: The crusty/flaky dried milk or sour cream...
Some random thoughts of today:
Being sick usually sucks unless it gives you the wonderful excuse to call in sick for work and sit around in your pajamas watching tv all day. If the Harry Potter series may eventually become ”classics” does that mean children of future generations will despise them alongside Tale of Two Cities and The Great Gatsby (not that all students despise these either)? If so, I really...
A Quitter's Justification
This is just a note in retrospect of my past writings. I started a 30 day challenge at the beginning of December. As you have probably already noticed, I never got around to finishing it. Let me explain. Not that anyone actually cares, but I feel the need to justify myself if only for my own sake. I started this blog as a tool to help my creativity and give me a place to express my inspiration. It...
Happily Never After
Sometimes I imagine what life would be like as an animated character; one of those Disney princesses. Would I have that long, luscious hair or impossibly tiny waist? Would my eyes be huge and full of innocence, completely betraying my naivete…or is it stupidity? You never really know with those silly girls (note: there are exceptions to the silliness of the Disney gals ie. Belle, Mulan,...
