One thing I love about my roomie

is that she doesn't like dark chocolate. Therefore, when someone (her boyfriend) buys her chocolates, I get all of the dark chocolate variety. A boyfriend benefit without the drama. Nice.

August Rush
I've been sitting watching life pass from the sidelines
Been waiting for a dream to seep in through my blinds
I wondered what might happen if I left this all behind
Would the wind be at my back ? Could I get you off my mind...
This time.
I've watched this movie twice in the past week. I just finished watching, and apparently, if you don't turn it off, it restarts. With subtitles, this time. And I'm just letting it go because it gives me goosebumps. And I pretty much want to dissolve in a puddle of tears for the sheer beauty and emotion.

And that was my sappy post of the day.

A blog's revival

I feel a bit like Dr. Frankenstein, only I sincerely hope this blog does not become my monster. Although, surprisingly, I kinda loved Frankenstein, actually. I should reread it. Mhmmm...anywho, focus.

I need somewhere to write. I have to. I don't know quite where this blog will go, but I have realized recently that the words are simply pressing on me, pleading with me to release them, and I never seem to get around to writing them in that lovely leather journal I bought for myself (besides, that's supposed to be "letters" to my future husband anyway, not ramblings about just anything). So here I go again. We'll have to see where this takes me, shall we?

"I heard someday
might be today
mysteries of destinies they
are somehow
and are someway
for all we know
they come tomorrow
for today
my eyes are open
my arms are raised for your embrace
my hands are here to mend what is broken
to feel again the warmth of your face
I believe there is more to life..."

Every sunrise is a present, a gift from God above,
Gift-wrapped with scarlet ribbons and tied with bows of love.

Each day's a new beginning, a time to start anew,
While all the stars are sleeping, and the rose is fresh with dew.

Every day's a new creation, too lovely to ignore,
And we may find a blessing, just outside our door.

We cannot keep the past, like fireflies in a jar
Nor journey to the future by wishing on a star.

Every sunrise is a blessing, a gift for just today.

Rejoice, my friend, embrace it before it fades away!


Isn't the sunrise beautiful! My very stressful morning was completely turned around by the gorgeous artwork of God this morning; the colors were so vibrant and vivid. My little camera phone was completely incapable of capturing the essence of the sunrise....wow...I hope this picture will be able to share a little bit of the magic I saw this morning.

Word of the Week...or until I come across another that I like!


[i-buhl-yuhnt, i-bool-]
–adjective: overflowing with fervor, enthusiasm, or excitement; high-spirited: The award winner was in an ebullient mood at the dinner in her honor.

Fun, eh?

And I promise, a real post is coming. Finals will be the death of me, I'm sure! But facebook, polyvore, a new AIM account, and my friends will get me through....or make me crazier, one of the two! hehe! 

Happy December!

Have I gone mad?

I got up out of bed to write a paper just because I had an idea. It was a good idea, and I like the paper, but still....

Oh well, such is the life of a writing major; I should probably get used to it...
