I'm a survivor.
I'm gonna make it.
I'm a survivor.
Keep on surviving.


Did you think I'd crumble?
Did you think I'd lay down and die?
Oh no, Not I
I will survive
Oh as long as I know how to love, I know I'll stay alive
I've got all my life to live
And I've got all my love to give
I'll survive
I will survive

I actually started posting on lj again but in a shhh-secret journal. :) I don't know how to publicly journal anymore.

I'm a bitch, I'm a lover
I'm a child, I'm a mother
I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell, I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way

3 quarters
1 dime
2 nickels
4 pennies

If you place those coins in your pocket everyday, you will always have exact change (at least for your first purchase). That way you can jingle everywhere you go, like a reindeer, and empty that ceramic pig bank or coin purse.

4 Stages of Life:

1. You believe in Santa Claus
2. You don't believe in Santa Claus
3. You are Santa Claus
4. You look like Santa Claus

Great Truths Children Have Learned:
  • When your mom is mad at your dad, don't let her brush your hair.
  • When your sister hits you, don't hit her back. They always catch the second person.

Great Truths That Adults Have Learned:
  • Raising teenagers is like nailing Jello to a tree.
  • Middle age is when you choose your cereal for your fiber, not your toy.

Great Truths About Growing Old:
  • Growing old is mandatory. Growing up is optional.
  • Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives i can get.
  • You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster. 
  • It's frustrating when you know all the answers but no one bothers to ask you the questions.
  • Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician.
George Carlin Thoughts:
  • When someone asks, "A penny for your thoughts" and you put in your two cents, what happens to the other penny?
  • Why are wise men and wise guys considered opposites?
  • "I am" is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that "I do" is the longest?" 
  • If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked and dry cleaners depressed?
  • If Fed Ex and UPS were to merge, would they call it Fed Up?
  • Isn't making a smoking section in a restaurant rather like making a peeing section in a pool?

I feel so much better now. I'm having a great day.  And the fact that yesterday was so bad made today even better :).

This morning, I woke up and I realized, there are some things I can do nothing about so there's no point in worrying.  And there are some things I can change, so I should change them.

So simple to understand, so hard to implement.

I think I said I was ok.

I'm not.

And that makes me angry too.

Everyone's angry right now because of grades. I'm a little angry about that, but that's hardly the problem.

I hate feeling this way. It's not breakwindowsscreamintopillows anger, but rather, a dull sort of pain, a tinge of anger, and a weighty sadness.

That's a great weakness of mine, the fact that I close up whenever I'm troubled.  No one can help me but myself.  And you know what, even I can't help myself today.  I don't know why.  I tried sleeping on it too. I tried writing everything down.  So now I am well-rested and my anger is organized.  File cabinet anger is not much better.  It's like washing a broken window.

Word Dump

I've become really critical of people's speaking styles lately. Not necessarily how "articulate" or "eloquent" they are, but more with how they argue. My mother, logical fallacies galore. And she says so many words without saying a thing.

I just spent the last 45 minutes lecturing, yes, lecturing, my mom on being more concise and listening to the person with whom she is speaking. Ironically, I wasn't communicating too effectively myself. I've found that I speak horribly when conversations are one-sided, like this one. Balanced conversations I can do.

My throat hurts.

It was really warm outside. I am so calm right now. As opposed to yesterday, can we say PMS! This morning, SAT II Day or rather, SAT Subject Test Day, I woke up to find "."'s present. My future husband's lucky because I only pms the day before my period (mood=sinusoidal). Don't some girls pms for more days?

I think I post about my period too much. I wonder if I only post when I have it. I could check, but the phone is ringing.

Something Interesting: I was addicted to Blogthings for a while a few weeks ago. And dude, I just went Blogthings crazy a few minutes ago. That was fun.

Ok. That's weird. Someone called me articulate today. Now I'm confused.

Can anyone explain what articulate means?
