So, instead of sleeping, I'm sitting here fine-tuning a playlist that I'm going to burn for someone I like. But having never done this sort of thing before, I'm not terribly sure of what I'm doing.
I would like to think that the three priorities are, in no particular order:
  • Music that tells him about me; stuff I like, my beliefs
  • Music that says "I like you"
  • Music that he will like
But I'm not sure how to go about doing this. This is rather frustrating.
Clearly I need to stop thinking about it so much, and just not worry about it.

I am currently wearing a pin.
The pin has a black triangle surrounded by a red triangle.
I am wearing it on the left side of the shirt I have on, over my heart.
It makes me happy.
I have interviewed five people in two days, and I've thoroughly enjoyed the experience so far.

Today, classes taking place after noon were canceled, due to the ice storm that has struck campus. When I went to practice, there were icicles, and sleet was still coming down. A cardinal was in the garden, which struck me as odd, since I'd not seen one in Oklahoma before.
I slept until 3.
It was a beautiful thing.
I'm re-reading The Great Gatsby for my expository writing class, and to prepare for the assignment I am expected to do, I am highlighting all references to color and clothing.
It pains me to write in a book. I will probably get a different copy of it when I am assembling my library.

My friend, J, has spent time in Haiti.
I kind of felt a little detached from the entire earthquake-tragedy-happening, because:
  • I don't pay enough attention to current events
  • I don't know anyone in Haiti? I mean, it was very sad, but at the same time, tragedy isn't as tragic if you don't know anyone affected.
However, J knows people affected. And she's worried about them. So if you're a praying person, keep her friends (and the rest of the country) in your prayers.



Every so often a song comes along that I simply cannot stop listening to.
This happened to me the other day.
"I Turned the Corner/I'm Falling in Love" from Thoroughly Modern Millie is my latest obsession... particularly when Jimmy's part is sung by Gavin Creel. He's a cutie.

His voice is liquid happiness.

Anyway, I go back to school on Sunday.
I'm looking forward to it thoroughly.

Losing Faith in Humanity

  • The latest TV show on ABC is called "The Conveyer Belt of Love." A five women are placed in front of a conveyer belt, on which 30 guys will roll by. These guys have one minute to impress the ladies, after which they will indicate whether or not they are interested in the guy. If a woman is interested in a guy, the guy will go stand in front of her until a guy rolls by on the conveyer belt that she is more interested in, at which point she can replace the guy in front of her. HOWEVER if two women are interested in the same guy, the guy gets to pick which girl he stands in front of. After the whole process, the show follows the five women on their dates with the men they have selected.
  • I was at the bookstore the other day, doing my Christmas shopping... and I found this.

An interesting time... the end of a year, the end of a decade, and the end of my first semester at college. The first is cause for celebration, the second is cause for reflection, and the last is cause for planning ahead.

To my family: I am blessed to count you as my own. You have loved and guided me as I've grown, and forgiven my mistakes. I hope you know how dearly I hold you in my heart, and that I'd do anything for you.

To my friends: Thank you for brightening my days. I hope that I can return some fraction of the joy that you inspire in me.

To him: I don't know if I've met you yet, but if I have, I hope that you consider me to be a person you can come to both when you're strong and when you're broken, and that you'll let me share in your life, as I'd like to share mine with you.

To you: You've sat and listened to my dreams, my heartaches, my joys, my disappointments, my passions, my musings, my hopes. I hope you can take something away with you that might be useful, or simply something that will make you smile.

Maybe I'll write a book.
