this man. in this movie. not even a joke. i want to marry him. and im not saying that in a creepy fan girl way. i mean if this was a real dude, who was part of my life, i would do a lot of things to marry him. like i would actually be willing to get married if this was who i got to marry. dear christ. i know. im gushing. but the second picture. if you could see the full outfit and the face he made and the hands in his pockets. and the first picture. pretty much the perfect date. anyway. new love of my life. chris o’dowd.
living away from best friends sucks. and it’s stupid. and it results in a bunch of misunderstandings. and confusion. and stuffing everything important into a short phone call. and tears of sadness for not being around for the important things. like when someones in the hospital. or planning a wedding. or just having real arguments that you could hug out but now can’t so they are much worse then they would ever be.
and i just think that best friends should live near each other. no matter what. because taking that kind of an influence out of someones life is bound to send them into shock.
everyone said graduating would be hard. they all said that getting a job would be the hardest part. no one told me that the worst part is actually the act of leaving. walking away from people that made you who you are and doing it on purpose. choosing to be away from the people that are your new home. that’s the worst part.
started off early: looking at my email to see if i got emailed back for an interview today. i didn’t. but no worries, it may be next week. did laundry. yada yada.
went out with Mom to a museum and lunch which was really fun and really good and nice. but then found out that one of the besties was really sick still (bad allergic reaction) so that was a little rough, just worrisome, i guess. especially since she was all by herself.
then went to hang out with big sister who now has sweet blue cast on her leg. good times. played some indiana jones lego game with her. everything was good. a little tired but good. then big brother decided to push my buttons, just cause he was bored, and made me all anxious pretty much accidentally on purpose. he knew it was bothering me and did it anyway. so now, i’m half asleep in the back room, waiting for everyone else to finish a movie so that other sister can take me home so i can go to bed.
anyway, heading to Savannah for the weekend in the morning. but super anxious right now, not about Savannah but just cause i am. im just really tired. this is not a very interesting post but anyway. im gonna be gone till monday.

“Everything has its own place and function. That applies to people, although many don’t seem to realize it, stuck as they are in the wrong job, the wrong marriage, or the wrong house. When you know and respect your Inner Nature, you know where you belong. You also know where you don’t belong.”—The Tao of Pooh (Perite)
I found your blog via a search for all things San Francisco. Yours came up mentioning a few jobs you've applied to (I'm not sure when you applied though). Just wanted to say I got a job in SF that requires me to travel to Europe too (Barcelona though) a few times a year. It can happen. Positive thoughts!
Hi! Well that’s pretty awesome! And it also was a lovely thing to wake up to! Thanks for the words of encouragement! (I am using a lot of exclamation points). But really, thank you! I hope it works out too!
“She loved to jump on her bed. She jumped on her bed for so many years that one afternoon, while I watched her jump, the seams burst. Feathers filled the small room. Our laughter kept the feathers in the air. I thought about birds. Could they fly if there wasn’t someone, somewhere, laughing?”—
