final thought of the night

confession: i have a huge huge crush on ezra koenig from vampire weekend. cutest. my voice of choice. long lashes. you get it. i really feel like i have never felt this way about someone i don't even know. how is it that whenever i watch an interview of him, he seems to mention his asian girlfriend? and how is it that i genuinely boil inside with jealousy? i really feel like this is a problem and i need to do something about it. i kind of feel like the only solution would be to meet him and make him fall in love with me. maybe i can invite him to the super sweet new years eve party? this blog has reached a new low. goodnight.

p.s.

in no way am i saying that i'm perfect...but good GOD! i've learned that being friends with people that have no balance in their lives is pointless so i'm not even going to try anymore.

people are such hypocrites.

au revoir!

butter

this is great. someone called me a hipster a few days ago and frankly, i think i listen to too much jazz and am way too interested in chanel suits for that shizzz....



but you. you're TOTALLY a hipster.


i've realized something.
There comes a time in a woman's life where she becomes ok with certain things. Ok in the sense that, she realizes that hey, I'm never gonna change it...so why stress?

There also comes a time in a woman's life where she begins to see patterns of things, brought by emotions, relationships, our physical beings, our spiritual beings, that turn into something like a routine. a second nature routine that we don't even know we're taking part in...its kinda just us in motion. i've always admired women like this...and my aunt used to say that every woman eventually goes through a time where they come to an understanding with themselves.

i'm realizing that these two things have crept up on me. i like being a woman and learning things. i like when the better things creep up.

creep
creep
creep

i layed in my bed yesterday and thought a lot about what went on this past year. it seems as though 2008 was the darkest for a lot of us. i felt a lot of pain and my loved ones felt a lot of pain and my friends felt a lot of pain. it was a tough year...but we all came out alive, which shows me that none of it was strong enough to beat us. thank God for that.

In my own life, however...i almost feel like i went head to head with a real demon. a demon that trampled on my heart, my self esteem, my peace. a demon that had no regrets and was reckless against - me and only me. i felt like i was in a boxing match trying my best to endure punch after punch. bight after bight. kick after kick. no one in my life was ever that in-humane, heartless, lacking in morale, disgusting, foul mouthed, pitiful as he was. no one in my life had ever been able to make me feel so worthless than he did. but in the past few days, thinking about him i feel no anger or sadness or wanting. in the past few days i've felt lack of feelings about thomas, and i feel as if that means something. i mean, not even a hint. what a relief. what a relief. what a release. what freedom. God is good.

God is good.




In addition, A few more things that have crept upon me this week:

- i'm finally ok with:
1) the shape of my nose
2) my height
3) the color of my eyes

- i tend to do the same things at the same time, every day. for example: getting hungry, using the bathroom, cigarette breaks.

- and with the latter, i've also realized that my need/want for a cigarette has drastically decreased! this is great news!


i've also realized that winter brings me love
and that summer brings me heart ache.
and that everything in between is up for grabs.

i did A LOT of thinking the past two days my phone was missing. in fact, i'm contemplating getting rid of it. how funny would that be?

the ultimate post secret



i feel this way every single day.
i probably should feel like an idiot for posting this...especially when i'm single. but i really thought i was the only one...

having been at my grandparents' 60th wedding anniversary....i get scared that with their health deteriorating that they won't see the last grand daughter of theirs get married. my grandparents are my heroes. and this really makes me sad.

60 years

i'm in d.c. celebrating my grandparents' 60th anniversary.
i can't write much right now and will have pictures later but...
how is it possible that love can last that long?



i'm amazed. and i want it.

i die



I really love this pant.
not that i wanna be all, "Girl, that top would look GREAT with a 'dark acid wash denim pant'!"
but really. this is like, art pant. like, i'd be shopping with someone and they'd point them out to me as a joke but i would totally take them seriously. i'm pretty sure these were at jcrew or somewhere mom-ish a few seasons ago, but i really am embracing the fact that your lower half could double as wall paper.

find me art pants!
