I Heart JM

"Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8-color boxes, but what you're really looking for are the 64-color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. I fancy myself to be a 64-color box, though I've got a few missing. It's ok though, because I've got some more vibrant colors like periwinkle at my disposal. I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet the 8-color boxes. Does anyone else have that problem? I mean there are so many different colors of life, of feeling, of articulation.. so when I meet someone who's an 8-color type.. I'm like, hey girl, magenta! and she's like, oh, you mean purple! and she goes off on her purple thing, and I'm like, no - I want magenta!"

-John Mayer

i love this quote. it's different and a funny way to illustrate a point, but i love the point he makes. i want to be a 64-color box. i want to know people that are 64-color boxes, too. life is so interesting...and i love it. i hope i never take it for granted.

Spring Break 2009!

i am supposed to go on a cruise with a friend to the bahamas for spring break. i was really excited until everyone else backed out. it would be ideal for 4 of us to go, gas wise, and also because there is safety in numbers. but multiple people have been asked and it has come back to just the 2 of us. i don't want to ditch her and the $ has already been sent. 20 hour drive to ft. lauderdale for a 3 day 2 night cruise?? idk.

i just keep thinking "safety in numbers"

"you've wasted every moment of your Saturdays and your Sundays"

I had a wonderful sort of weekend.

Friday started it off great. I got to see my WONDERFUL friend Sarah and we spent several hours outside enjoying the beautiful day, throwing a frisbee, getting some sun, talking to fun people, and transplanting crocuses. All while in the comfort of Old Main lawn. Then my sister came and we enjoyed a movie, making super, cooking a pie, dying shirts, and making a tiny documentary (:

Saturday found me helping a friend decorate her apartment...what a practical use of my major!! We went to Riff Raff and if you haven't been there PLEASE GO!! I am officially in love with the store!! Afterwards, I sat quite alone in my apartment painting and watching FRIENDS. It was near perfection. Went to Froggy's on Saturday night to hear a band and met a fun guy playing guitar on the street corner.

Sunday was my Dad's birthday. The day was beautiful and my dog Daisey was LOVING it!! The fam went and saw Taken, it was AWESOME!! Then I hung out with a fun new friend and he gave me some mellow music to listen to!!

It was a wonderfully unproductive weekend. It was near perfect.

Car [Love]

I got a new car on Saturday 02.28.2009...a volvo, it is so pretty. Black with tinted windows. I named it Edward Anthony Masen Cullen.

It seemed appropriate.

Otis, My Love

we had to put Otis to sleep last Thursday 02.26.2009. It was very sad but he was old (11 years 9 months) and he lived a happy life. I just miss him a lot. We got a few good pictures of him (:
