sorry. that was a bit of a teaser with the whole mom and the puppy thingy.
so here’s the story:
My mom’s boyfriend Mark lives in North Carolina and he had heard about these Siberian Husky puppies that we’re for sale. The other day we had to go pick up Odyssey’s ashes from the Vet. When we got home Mark called and said that the weirdest thing had happened. He had been in his office and the Siberian Husky puppies were there (only three were left). So he walked into his office and sat down at his desk and he heard something. He looked down and the little girl Husky had wandered into his office. Mark and Mom both claim that this was too much of a coincidence. I think they both wanted it to happen. But anyway… this is how my mother went from suddenly having no pets (after Odyssey died). to a day later having a kitten (Ollivander). and now she will have a kitten and a puppy in the house by herself.
Oh and the puppy has these markings around her eyes that look like mascara. So Mom has named her Maybelline. As in the song by Chuck Berry. I shall call her Maybel. She comes home in the middle of August. I will take lots of pictures to show off her cuteness. But anyway. I hope Maybel and Ollie get along.
i generally don’t do outfit posts. but i felt very preppy today. and i never am preppy. so i figured that i would make it happen.
ok. i’m having a Harry Potter dork moment here. So I’m re-reading The Deathly Hallows (again) and I’m pretty close to the end of the book. I’m at the part where Snape dies.
Let me give you a little background. I’m a Harry Potter person. I’ve read all the books more times than I can count and I love being able to pick up on new things every time. Also, Snape is probably in my top three favorite characters in the book. but anyway.
So just now. I’m reading the end of chapter 32. And Snape is all dying and such. But then he says “look… at… me”. and (I am ashamed to admit) that I totally just realized that he wanted to see Lily’s eyes one last time as he was dying. That’s why. I mean of course he wanted to look at this kid who he had protected for all these years. But he wanted to look at those green eyes one more time before he died. I’m sorry but that got to me. I’m such a dork and I can’t believe I never noticed that before. But oh man. I cried like a baby.
please forgive me for being such a dorky 20 year old. :D

i always have to reblog douglas. he’s my favorite author. fun fact.
Let your beauty unfold.
Pale white, like the skin
stretched over your bones.
Spring keeps you ever close.
You are second hand smoke.
You are so fragile and thin.
Standing trial for your sins.
Holding onto yourself the best you can.
You are the smell before rain.
You are the blood in my veins.
Call me a safe bet. I’m betting I’m not.
I’m glad that you can forgive.
I’m only hoping as time goes,
you can forget.” —
ok. so things are gonna get real for like two seconds here. bear with me.
listening to Brand New as a teenager was one of the best things that ever happened to me. i was in love with Deja Entendu. i still am. when my sister got sick she wrote me a note interlaced with quotes from the album (i wish i could find that letter). when i was sad or upset or just wanted to listen to some seriously good music i would blare the album. when i went to college it took on a different meaning. it was a way to remind myself of home and my friends and it described a lot of how i was feeling. last year its meaning changed again. i fell prematurely for a guy who loved it as much as i did. and we talked about the album and exchanged favorite parts of it and enjoyed it together even though we were hundreds of miles apart. turns out that i wasent the only one he did that with. so the lyrics turned into revenge. and i quoted Brand New whenever i thought of him or how upset i was or when i was hurting. that lasted for a while. but when this popped up i realized that now it’s changed again. and now it’s back to being a source of comfort. and i love that. but i also love that it will always remind me of so many things especially how much i have grown up. all with this cd.
