"We drove out to the desert just to lie down beneath this bowl of stars. We stand up in the palace like it's the last of the great pioneer town bars. We shout out these songs against the clang of electric guitars."
-Counting Crows; Mrs. Potter's Lullaby

I am almost certain that I will never be able to put this feeling into words. Every moment is one of those moments when you could hug the sky. One of the moments i LIVE for. When you just look around and every single thing- right & wrong, happy & sad- is just perfect. When you wouldn't change the present for anything in the world. Where you wouldn't change who you are for anything. You wouldn't take back one mistake or a tear each got you where you are today. & even though you're in a smokey attic, it feels like you're laying in the desert beneath the stars.

"Because we do not know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well, and yet everything happens only a certain number of times ... How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood ... that is so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps 4 or 5 times more. Perhaps not even. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps 20. And yet it all seems limitless." -Brandon Lee

Reading a favorite book is just like having a long chat with an old friend.

And so with the sunshine and great burst of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.
-The Great Gatsby

Wow. That line speaks directly to my soul. In the summer I am invincible.

Dear The Boys Upstairs, [Sep. 1st, 2007|04:59 am]
Rachel
I know you'll never read this. But I'm sure I'll tell you this one day. Meeting you boys was the best thing that has happened to me in college. You are some of my very best friends and you have introduced me to many people who I now am close with. We have such a carefree, fun friendship, and it's something I've always needed in my life. Thank you so much for everything.

I love you!

l'amour. [Nov. 11th, 2005|03:42 am]

[music |telephone wires <3 mirah]

i love that i can't sleep at night because of flashing stoplights outside my window. i love when short phone calls become long phone calls at all times of the day. i love downloading songs based on their lyrics and realizing that they're perfect for me. i love the feel of my body after a workout. i love having friends around every corner. i love having a boy across the country. i love cool days on campus. i love making the perfect mix. i love real laughter, the kind that comes from deep inside. i love leaves crunching under my feet. i love the feel of a warm car. i love staying up all night and sleeping all day. i love being comfortable with myself. i love life.
