growing up doesn’t necessarily mean absence of fun or sense of child-likeness, does it? God, i hope not. here’s to happiness and learning from our mistakes and accepting responsibilities. and realities. and possibilities. and impossibilities. and other words that end in -ilities.

and love.


and browsing through the women’s dresses, which, to be honest, i would be doing even if they didn’t have hot girls modeling them. merely a bonus. :) there are some amazingly designed pieces that make me wish that i was a student at fidm. and not because of the extreme ratio of males to females attending. merely a bonus. :)

love apparently isn’t for me. but does that necessarily mean no happy ending? i’d like to think not. but this is one instance where i wish i still had a best friend to turn to/confide in. i also wish i had a better entry written under “love” but it may never get past this point. buying faux sunshine off shelves. instructions: “just add water”. chemical rainbows and singing birds over the chaotic and disastrous streets in my head. confused, happy, and disappointed at the same time and having high hopes that maybe this is a temporary quarter-life crisis, but also trying to analyze wth is going on.

sinking feeling, shooting flares hoping you’ll notice and throwing compasses overboard hoping you’ll find me — i really hope you do because you make me smile when it’s hard to.

continually praying that He reveals Himself more to me and gives me wisdom to understand the situations He places me in, as well as comprehend that there is more to love than what i currently (don’t) know. that His love is all i need, to find overflowing contentment in that and to consider anything else as an added blessing. this entry might seem bi-polar. it isn’t. it is.

Jim: So as it turns out, I may not have done so hot on my customer reviews this year.

Pam: Maybe it’s ’cause you spent the whole year flirting with the receptionist.

Jim: Little bit. Worth it.

has anybody realized that cathy nguyen’s immense popularity comes without a single original song? just an observation. harsh name drop, but every performer in the “circle” has at least one song written, right? Someone correct me if i’m wrong.

edit: so cathy proved me wrong by singing an amazing original song via blogtv… the way we’ve been corresponding lately kind of leads me to believe that she’s read this post but i hope she didn’t because now i feel bad. haha. so a million apologies to cathy, but if you DID read this, i only hope it’s helped as a sort of constructive criticism? :) love you.
