Brandon got his duty station! It's in Savannah, Georgia at Fort Hunter Airfield. We report April 14th. Time to put my 2 weeks in at work! (:
I want to hear someone's life story. A stranger's. And then tell them mine. I want them to know everything about me. Those little things that I keep to myself because I'm afraid of judgment. Terrible, awful things that I lock up in the back of my head. My opinions. The truth. Everything and anything I can think of. And I want them to not hate me afterwards.
I realized I had justentered an interesting chapter in my life. I had outgrown the boys of my past and not quite grown into the men of my future.
We don't have to save the world. The world is big enough to look after itself. What we have to be concerned about is whether or not the world we live in will be capable of sustaining us in it. (Douglas Adams)
“If you enter this world knowing you are loved, and leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with.”
No matter what i do I can't get you off my mind. I'm not so sure I want you off my mind.
There’s a reason why two people stay together; they give each other something nobody else can.
There's always going to be bad stuff out there. But here's the amazing thing: light trumps darkness, every time. You stick a candle into the dark, but you can't stick the dark into the light.
Of course life frightens me sometimes. I don’t happen to take that as the premise for everything else though. I’m going to give it hundred percent and go as far as I can. I’ll take what I want and leave what I don’t want. That’s how I intend to live my life, and it things go bad, I’ll stop and reconsider at that point. If you think about it, an unfair society is a society that makes it possible for you to exploit your abilities to the limit. - Haruki Murakami
But I will say that if you're alive, you got to flap your arms and legs, you got to jump around a lot, you got to make a lot of noise. Because life is the very opposite of death and therefore, as I see it, if you're quiet, you're not living. You've got to be noisy or at least your thoughts should be noisy and colorful and lively.
Even when the sun forgets to shine, I'll be there to hold you through the night. And even when we're miles and miles apart, you're the only one who holds my heart.
If I am a clock, then you’re are the time. I'm patiently waiting when you're out of line. I'll be the question if you'll be the answer.
It’s not about the money we make. It’s about the passions that we ache for, what makes your heart beat faster. Tell me now; what does your body long after?
Don't you see that the charade is over, and all the best deceptions and the clever cover story awards go to you, so kiss me hard, 'cause this will be the last time that I'll let you.
Before you ask which way to go, remember where you’ve been.

It's Spring! Which means 3 months till Summer! Cabin fever, anyone? Enjoy the Springy-ness! (:
What did you do for Spring Break? If you haven't gone yet, what are you going to do? I went skiing in 65 degree weather! Perfect (:

Spring Break! Brandon comes home 1 month from today. I'm getting kind of tired of this whole "I miss you" game. Just ready for it to be over.. which will never happen so long as he's in the Army.
At the moment, I am currently obsessed with the song Take A Picture by Filter, I know it's old, but it's kind of a tender little song whose lyrics hardly make any sense, but I loove the music. Check it out. I've had it on replay for at least 2 solid days now. Enjoy (:
Everything I do, I think "You should be here".
There are two lasting bequests we can give our children; one is roots, the other is wings.
The pain you're feeling is directly proportional to the importance of the person who caused it.
Please smile, even if it's killing you. Never give him the satisfaction of knowing he hurt you like that.
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have in trying to change someone else.
I appreciate your sympathy, but please don't tell me it was "God's plan"; that just makes me think you're both assholes.
You know those nights when you cannot sleep? Well, maybe you're awake in someone else's dream.
I don't know what they are called, the spaces between seconds- but I think of you always in those intervals.
"In that place in the darkness, two oddly sensitive human atoms held each other tightly and waited. In the mind of each was the same thought, 'I have come to this lonely place and here is this other', was the substance of the thing felt"
Smile, and you'll feel like smiling.

Kind of an odd-ball jummble of photos and quotes, but I actually really like this post. Enjoy!
The stronger the wind the stronger the trees.
Nobody ever saw you like I did. And you know where that got me? Looking like an idiot when I couldn’t let you go.
To live life is to balance grace and grit, there's no growth in the comfort zone but no comfort in the growth zone
Scientists tell us that the fastest animal on earth, with a top speed of 120 feet per second, is a cow that has been dropped out of a helicopter. -Dave Barry
Next time you're stressed, take a step back, inhale & laugh. Remember who you are & why you are here. You're never given anything in this world that you cannot handle. Be strong, be flexible, love yourself & love others. Always remember, just keep moving forward
I hate the feeling you get when you say your final good bye and walk away. The feeling that someone in your heart is missing, like a huge black whole just showed up and won't go away.
When a man says he doesn’t know what he wants, he means he doesn’t want you but since he doesn’t have anyone else at the moment, you’re better than nothing until he finds what he’s looking for.
There is so much beauty in the world that I don’t know what to do with my hands.
The one who is depressed don't dress in black. The one who believes they're fat don't announce it. The one who is scared doesn’t scream. The one struggling doesn’t show their scars. The one’s hurting the most are the one's hidden.
I constantly wonder how my life looks in other people's eyes. Do they think I have it easy? Do they think I have nothing going for myself? Or are they fascinated with who I am? The thing is that no one will ever know my whole story. No one will ever know the things I've had to overcome. Not even my closest friends, not even my own family. The thing is that people are so quick to judge now days. You only see a person from what they want and allow you to see. I always try to look as put together as I can, and I guess that's my way of hiding the truth. It's just that that way everyone will assume that everything in my life is okay. That I never go through anything. If only everyone knew how broken I am, and how I’m holding on for dear life on this one last strand that's recently become very delicate. The truth is that no one really knows me. No one will ever know me, and sometimes that scares me, because no one will ever know why I am the way I am.
But maybe that’s what it all comes down to. Love, not as a surge of passion, but as a choice to commit to something, someone, no matter what obstacles or temptations stand in the way. And maybe making that choice, again and again, day in and day out, year after year, says more about love than never having a choice to make at all.
Smile more, suffer less.
Sometimes you have to forget what you feel, and realize what you deserve.

I know there will be risks, but I want to face them with you. It’s wrong that we should only be half alive, half of ourselves. I love you. So here I am, standing in your doorway. I’ve always been standing in your doorway.
Maybe tonight we could closet the door and lock ourselves inside. Take time to feel. I don’t want to miss the chance to be so real. The days all fly away and I forget the truth. Everything that matters is in this room.
Time is ticking away. Yes you’re young, but the years fly by and soon you’ll be wondering what would have happened if you would have spoken what was inside your heart.
Because sometimes you just feel tired, you feel weak. When you feel weak, you feel like you just wanna give up. But you gotta search within yourself, try to find that inner strength and just pull that shit out of you and get that motivation to not give up and not be a quitter, no matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face and collapse.
No love is bigger than the one which is given away, torn apart and yet still, it remains.
Laying there with your arms around me I felt so comfortable and safe. My heart was beating a mile a minute having you so close to me. As you played with my hair and kissed me I couldn't help but smile straight from my heart. I could see how much you cared from the look in your eyes. It made me never want to let you go. To just stay wrapped in your arms forever. Where nothing else matters but you and me.
What is it about the sound of someone you love crying? Is it set to a frequency that instantly breaks your heart?
The fact that you cannot kiss your elbow is enough to make you realize that some things seem to be so close, yet they are bound to be beyond your reach.
Life is funny sometimes, it can push pretty hard, but if you look close enough, you find hope in the words of children, in the bars of a song and in the eyes of someone you love.
Music isn’t just a pleasure, a transient satisfaction. It’s a need, a deep hunger; and when the music is right, it’s joy. Love. A foretaste of heaven; a comfort in grief.
The only thing that scares me more than space aliens, is the idea that there aren’t any space aliens. We can’t be the best that creation has to offer. I pray we’re not all there is. If so, we’re in big trouble.

How's everyone doing? Great, I hope! Enjoy the post! (:
You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore
"I never said it out loud. I mean, what’s the point? It’s not gonna change anything. It’s not gonna make me good. Make me…adopt a puppy. I can’t be what other people want me to be. What she wants me to be. This is who I am."
This has everything to do with him. This is about knowing the difference between right and wrong, between the truth and a lie. He took that away from you and if you can't tell the difference, then you can't trust anyone. And if you can't trust, you can't love.
Yes, I know what I've done and I regret it every day. If I could make things right, you know I'd find a way.
Have you ever thought that if one thing hadn’t happened, a whole set of things never would have either? Like dominoes in time, a single event kicked off an unstoppable series of changes that gained momentum and spun out of control, and nothing was ever the same again. Don’t ever doubt that a mere second can change your life forever.
For those nights when I couldn't be there, I’ve made it harder to know that you know, that somehow we'll keep moving on.
I don’t think you’re leaving, I think you’re running. And, what I can’t figure out is, are you running towards something you want? Or are you running away from something you’re afraid to want?
Don't base your decisions on advice from people who don't have to deal with the results.
And if I could tell you how I really felt, the world would be off my shoulders. And if I could live my days without the reminders, all my smiles would be real. And if I didn't have to worry about the future instead of what's going on today, I'd be able to breathe.
Perhaps when we find ourselves wanting everything, it is because we are dangerously close to wanting nothing.
You spend so much time wondering who you are, don't you think? You flounder about, searching for your identity, when most of the time it is as plain as the nose on your face. You struggle with questions of purpose and need, and forget that the answers are found mostly inside you.
Rock bottom is everything out of focus. It's a failure of vision, a failure to see the world as it is, to see the good in what it is, and only to wonder why the hell things look the way they do and not, not some other way.
