Realization # 1.
I. Am a quite selfish person.
Humanistic characteristic? Yes. But I have an advantage with God, and I'm not taking advantage of this advantageish advantage. I Haven't been growing lately, and usually I'm a grower, just not these past couple of months.
It is because of this flaw, that I want friends to come barreling back to me, to each other, and to God... and it is not occurring fast enough. Hence my agitation, anger, frustration, and tears.

Realization # 2 (with the help of my person).
I. Am a quite selfless person. And this is a flaw.
Does this sound obnoxious? Good. It IS obnoxious, because who on freakin' earth complains or brags or even states that they are a selfless person? It's self-righteous and egotistical.
However, I get this out into the open as a flaw because:
I have a tendency to give unwanted advice
I put myself in the middle of issues
I want people to be happy too much, sometimes forgetting I'm giving too much.

Realization # 3.
Sometimes. Things are. not. meant. to. be.
Sometimes. Things need to be let go.
Sometimes. I need to let things be.

Realization # 4
I really do have at least one friend who I know will always be here for me. Even in spirit.
Thanks MEA

Potentially Awkward Situations In the Car

1. Being stopped at a red light, see someone you know next to you, feeling obligated to roll down the window and talk to them until the light turns green. Sucks if it's a really long light.

2. Seeing an ex-boyfriend at said red light.

3. Being in the left turning lane and having to stare at the other left-turnee across from you.

4. Atempting a 3 point turn, which turns into a 42 point turn, and having both lanes honking at you.

5. 4-way stops and the spurting forwards of other cars, all unsure of what to do, resulting in wide-spread and misplaced anger by all participants in the 4-way stop fiasco.

6. Tailgating, honking horn, and flashing lights due to frustration at the 20-mile-under-the-speed limit car in front of you, only to realize at the stop sign later that it is your next door neighbor.

7. Angrily wondering why everyone is flashing their lights at you, then noticing your trunk is open.

8. Having a fight with someone in the passenger seat, then having to ask for directions after an awkward bout of silence.

Of course, all of these incedents have happened to me this past week.

The Laughter of Others

Something inside me wants to escape when I hear true laughter.
I don't know why this occurs... but I am absolutely captivated when:
-Someone laughs. Heartily.
-Someone makes somebody else laugh. Exuberantly.
-I am fortunate enough to make someone else laugh. Genuinely.

The thing desperately wanting to escape? A Grin.

Cimannnnnim Toast

As I hear the "pop" of the finale of the toaster, my mouth starts to salivate.
The warm, slightly bitter, melty slice of bread intoxicates my olfactory senses, in a way no other food item can compare.
It's rich, sparkling brown face catches my eye with that of a diamond... (Neil Diamond maybe..?) And as I suffer through the eating of the outer edges (also known as "Crust" in some cultures) of this rare gem, I find my reward in the very center. Where the butter, sugar, cimmanim, and love have all concentrated into One, Perfect, Bite.
What is this crunchy deliciousness in which I indulge myself in?
If you have not experienced this little piece of bliss, I suggest you do as the ancient Kings and Queens of the world did... Get a piece of Grandma Sycamore bread, pop it in the toaster, slather some Land O'Lakes on it, and sprinkle it with cinnamon and sugar you bought from Wal-mart.

Heaven at your Fingertips.

I Try

Really, I do.
But. I think I've forgotten the real reason for trying so hard.
And I needed a wake-up... since I've been in this perpetual dreamland for five years, nine months, and 11 days.
Had I known how to save a life... Meh.

Have I been too dark lately? Probably. My bad. Sorry.

I say too much on this thing. Sorry.
Have a happy period. Always.
:) :) :) :) :) :)
Whoops, i did it again.
hahahahha (no song intended)

Wake UP! Premonitions Aren't Real

How do you put trust in someone who does not trust the world?

How do you have faith in someone when they don't have faith in anyone?

How do you love someone who does not love themselves?

I don't know how to help when my help, my trust, my faith, my love is not wanted and is pushed away.
I don't know how to be the person to "be there" when in your mind I've already left you.

It's hard for a person who loves another individual with premeditated disappointment.

Just A Little Creepy Admiration

I'm tired of people "owning" music. And saying how much they looovvveeee iiitttt.
What, did you WRITE the stuff?
Okay I'm done with that semi-rant. Thanks.

There is this boy at school who probably will never know that I watch him. (NO this is not creepy, I Semi-Swear.) I think he's amazing. I think he's brilliant. I think he thinks he's a no-body, but the reality is: Nobody could not love this boy.

Let me make one thing clear: I have no romantic interest in him. I just love him. C'est clair? D'accord, J'ai cru.

He isn't apart of my friend group at all... and he isn't arrogant at ALL like, not even jokingly... it's weird.


I'm such a girl.

Peace out.

A Word to Content

Dear Content,

You evade me
You taunt me
You haunt me.

At times I wonder why your voice sounds far off in the distance, or I catch but a glance of you, leaving me ever angry, ever frustrated, forever dismayed.

But it is the times that I do catch you and taste your sweet composure
that I

I think I know how Cady feels.

Been hurt. Been victim. Been broken.
But it's a completely worse feeling to know you're the one who did the breaking.
Did I break it irreparably?

Sometimes people, by "caring," care their way into a tornado, ripping up everything in sight, care away any sense of judgment or calmness or reality.
It is hard enough to handle one ordeal alone. But when the whole world seems to know what to do for you, when the whole world seems to have an opinion, when the whole world seems to be going through your trial for you, and all you want to do is suffer by yourself and not be in the glass box while people stare at you, is even harder.

Dear ______,
I'm sorry for putting you in this glass box.

Cady made huge mistakes. So have I. It's time to suck out the poison.

Une Odeur Nouveau

This world has become a thorny rose.
It always has been... but I believe that the thorns are longer, and sharper, and multiplying. It seems to me that the stem is getting longer, steeper, higher.
However, I think the flower itself might be getting fuller. And the fumes that are given off of it becoming richer.

Reasoning for this dumb statement:

Seattle is a mix of wonders, types, people, and landscapes.

It provokes thought, ideas, emotion, connection, interpretation, determination.

There is a lot of scariness mixed up in it all.

But there is the ONE very important thing that intoxicates this city with the aroma of roses:
The freelance performers with their guitars.

How is it that a single person can fill a bustling street of confusion and noise with peace and authentic content with nothing but a large stringed instrument?
Everything about this continuous incident- the scruffy beard, the long-ish dirty hair, the tanned dry fingers, the eyes mirroring the Puget Sound, the sound not sounding like "puget" but like "a lark at the break of day arising".
It has all been the subconscious reason of everyone who enters this city, to return. Like a narcotic calling back its addict, Seattle calls to its children of the world.

I love this city. I will be back to you, one day, my sweet drug.

A perfect village farmer's market, downtown

Of course there's fish. They live off the stuff.

Ah, the Puget Sound

Me, Sarah, and Patti at Pike's Place.

Oh, also, we went to Vancouver... here's a little taste of the Pacific

Post Script (S.Shill)
Here lies the world's first ever- Starbucks. Gah.
