Some of you guys may be familiar with posts I make that are mostly a grab-bag of random quotes. Do you have a quote or saying you'd like to share here?
It is Saturday morning for me as I make this post. On Monday, I'll make wtp#31 and focus it around whatever you pass along, from whatever source you like. A 'words to ponder' melting pot, you might say. :)
Shout out to error345 for inspiring this.
If you can, please add the source/person who said it.
I haven't been keeping up anything lately the way I should, I feel this indescribable mix of utterly bored and utterly busy. But something happened in the past few months. I started writing: Fiction, fanfiction, for fun.
I want to share pieces of it here. Even if it's lost on the audience here, because fanfiction usually skips describing basic details it assumes a fan would know already.
This one was written per request of a friend's challenge, to see if I could do
I TOTALLY MISSED MY 2 YEAR OS BIRTHDAY! It was 10 days ago! Ah, golly, what a bummer. Time for me to dedicate a post in honor of how joyful I feel to have found this place.
It filled an immediate need/want when I was looking for an obscure film. It's funny, two years later, that film is finally translated in to English. (Tales of Vesperia : The First Strike)... And even then, I was taken by how streamlined this site ran. It was smaller, had wayyy fewer followers to be sure. But watching
Not really, anyway. It's been almost constantly storming and flooding. I had food poisoning, or a sickness or something finally going away. Both of those have kept me homebound. I managed to cement myself even FURTHER in to tumblr, rather than pull away from it, which wastes my free time I did give myself at the computer in the worst way. I barely bother with facebook anymore. I don't know what this is a sign of. Unless it means I'm hiding from real life people and things in favor of virtual things
this isn't a hiatus, this is a "can't come to the phone(computer) right now"
I've been sick this week, so while I have been on the computer more than I have in quite a long long time, suddenly there's a little bit of hullabaloo happening and I'll need to get back to you guys in a short while. It may be tomorrow, it may be next week. But these things happen. Thank you for understanding!
And if any of you wouldn't mind... I believe in the power of prayer, so
Not too shabby as far as milestones go. It's been a pleasure, fellow citizens. :)
Just got back from a big family trip that wasn't as stressful as I prepared myself to believe. In fact, the general consensus was that it stayed relatively drama-free for everyone. I couldn't have asked for anything more!
My play that I was in closed the week before. So now, I'm writing this, jet-lagged and worn down and with a clear conscience as well as a clear schedule. I suppose.

At least, I thought it was you. And it was wonderful. Then I woke up. And when I thought about it for a while... they only shared your face, but nothing else.
I guess that wasn't a dream about you at all. It was a dream about me, and the things I wished I had seen from you. They are things that I still associate with you after all this time. They are things that I must have hope that I will have for myself with the person I am meant to share them with.
But still, that
Paperroses' poem reminded me of something. I wanna introduce and summarize it for you.
I was in my high school's writing club as a freshman. The whole thing fell apart after that year, as my teacher got a new job somewhere else. While it lasted, it was wildly fun. I was a different person at this time. After years of wallflower behavior I was finally opening my mouth some and telling people how I felt and thought. It's strange to think of yourself changing in gradation but that's
As soon as I'm too busy to to check in to OS, the blogs are alight with conversation! Ha, but truly, this is great. So here's a rain check for me and a shout out to you.
I'm in the heart of finals right now (my college freshman year's about to end, wow) and theater and choir and skhfkashfghlopl. See you cats later.
Sometimes I feel like I am divided into very definite, polar personalities. It's like there are many "me"s; each are always chipper, always curious, always lazy, always depressed, always nostalgic, etc.
And sometimes one that's not the most 'environmentally-friendly' wins out over the others. That's usually the point when I withdraw.
I watch this 'changing of the guard' happen among the possible 'poles' I could take, then I get stuck in it. I weird myself
Today, someone bumped into me and brushed my hair aside. It was a classmate, inconsequentially, accidentally. I felt my hair rustle at my scalp and swish across my shoulders and I smiled. It was a reflex. Out of habit I thought someone was playing with my hair, affectionately. It was just like it. My gut reaction, out of habit, pictured his face. For two seconds that one small sensation flashed me back to what it was like to have someone who could while away an hour with you, fascinated, content
you're streaming a movie and stops/freezes/etc. halfway through? I mean, by that time, you're obviously invested in the story but the wait for it to reload at least that much just doesn't seem worth it at 4 am... It's the 4 am bit that makes my patience shorter here.
Though I've been hanging out here it's been a while since I shared any sort of status report here. I'm over all doing okay. There are ups and downs. I haven't since crossed off any more big ticket items on my to-do list
So, hi guys. Mission #2 addressed.
My boyfriend is now my ex.
He came in to visit, we went for a walk. Now?
We're two single, civil friends. Really.
And it's the best.
Thanks for everything.
I have this 'to-do' list of sorts.
I made it after I started mentally exploding.
It's a list of everything that I want to run away from, erase or change in my life right about now. But while some of those options aren't possible. Others are. And I'm tring to simplify, take out the complications. You know, identify the source and do something about it?
I feel proud though I haven't done much yet, save for 1) decide I am going to make changes and 2) back out of one of
