This weekend has been quite a ride. All in one weekend, there was a suicide on the subway witnessed by 2 of my friends, a stabbing happening minutes after we got off the subway, the winning of a national tournament, 6 advancing to semis, and many others disappointed of not advancing. There were late nights and early mornings, 50 degree weather and below freezing temperatures. There was the roof of the science center and the subway stop at Leslie, many stories underground. We ate wendys and seafood. Wore suits and sweats. A weekend full of joy, but with fear and sadness mixed in throughout.
This past weekend really put life into perspective for me. With the good always comes the bad. Sometimes we get so lost in the good, that we forget about the value of human lives. And how people are affected when they are lost. Sure we are the national champs. Everyones always going to remember that. The person that lost their life? I’ll remember him and how he made me feel, even though I never knew him.
SORRY FOR THE LATE ANSWER! I never get these so I didn’t even notice I got one.
If I was a cat, I’d definitely take advantage of being lazy and sleeping all day. Then I’d annoy the crap out of my owner to get them to do what I wanted. Then I’d probably sleep more :D As you can tell, I’m extremely sleep deprived right now
Ok not my ABSOLUTE favorite, but definitely at the top of my list.
" I fell in love with her when we were together, then fell deeper in love with her in the years we were apart. Our story has three parts; a beginning, a middle, and an end. And although this is the way all stories unfold, I still can’t beleive that orus didnt go on forever."
You all should read dear john. It’ll make you sob.
“When we were five, they asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up. Our answers were things like astronaut, president, or in my case, a princess. When we were ten, they asked again. We answered rock star, cowboy, or in my case, gold medalist. But now that we’ve grown up, they want a serious answer. Well, how about this: Who the hell knows? This isn’t the time to make hard and fast decisions, this is the time to make mistakes. Take the wrong train and get stuck somewhere. Fall in love… a lot. Major in philosophy, cause there’s no way to make a career out of that. Change your mind and change it again, because nothing’s permanent. So make as many mistakes as you can. That way, someday, when they ask again what we want to be, we won’t have to guess. We’ll know.”—Jessica Stanley, Eclipse. (via quote-book)
