So Michelle and I were talking about books from elementary school the other day, and when I tried to look for old books in the attic, I came across the journals I had from my 6th grade class, that our teacher made us keep.

Here's an excerpt.

"This weekend, Michelle slept over. On Monday we made cookies. While we waited for the second pan to bake, we were making balls of dough and putting them on my kitchen counter. I, however, being as "mature" as I am, was trying to catch bits of dough in my mouth. I tossed one up, and it hit the ceiling. It didn't stick, thankfully. Michelle reminded me of a book when they threw marshmallows up and they got stuck, then fell on the ground. Just as she finished, I threw one too high and it hit the ceiling. And stuck.

Now this was bad enough, but it was worse because we both cried out and laughed...but my dad was just in the other room!

So since Michelle was the tallest, she stood on one of our tall kitchen chairs and it fell off. But there was still some on the ceiling and Michelle, who is just about the tallest person I know, couldn't get it! So I gave her a spoon and she scraped it off. Right after we threw it away, my dad walked in. I was being as insuspicious as I could, looking at the ceiling once or twice...a second.

We could hardly breathe from laughing so hard after he left. I did not try to catch anything in my mouth after that."

Now that's love, baby.

WHAT!

On another note, this is why I love our country.

Here is an quote from my American Criminal Justice Systems textbook. This section is discussing how far a search warrant can go, and how much damage police officers can create until it is unconstitutional.

"...Mena v. City of Simi Valley...Fourth Amendment violated where officers unnecessarily broke down doors that were unlocked and open, with one officer stating "I like to destroy these kinds of materials, it's cool." "

AND SCENE!

God I love America.

So you're with someone for a final hurrah, trying to figure out what to do. You keep interrupting each other with stories and suggestions and random exclamations and "okay, did you notice when..." moments, and you never really decide what to do. You keep trying to find something that you always do, or a place you always go, or something that is "yours." Then you realize that this IS what you do, you interrupt each other and don't make sense to anyone else and you don't have to finish sentences, and you both notice this at the same time, and suddenly you don't need a final hurrah because nothing is final. Then you laugh to yourself because you sound like a "California Diaries" book, and you laugh again because there is one other person who will laugh along with you about that, and that, my dear, is what I call perfection.

On another note, I love rowing. I really do. This weekend = The Best Regatta becuase a) it was fun b) it was long and c) we actually did well. Five hundred meter dashes? Why didn't I know about coxing these before? Man it was fun. There are many rowing terms and stories about people and races and moments that are on the same level of greatness as Davey rubbing two quarters together, but I won't, becuase that would ruin it. ALTHOUGH, Miriam gave me a hug, which was weird, but it showed that she actually noted me a real coxswain who knew what she was doing, which I have been waiting for all summer. That was good.

As much as I don't need a final hurrah, that sure was a good one.

And practices next week are going to end up being me, Jolene, Cullen, Jack, and Linnea for the beginning of the week, and I am excited.

I have a new favorite thing in life: when someone finally sees you truly happy or truly excited about something, and they become happy or excited with you, just because you're so happy and excited. That moment when they catch your eye and mouth "Nice work" or give you the thumbs up secretly, or even come up to you an hour later and congratulate you because "they didn't want to harass you when you were so happy"....is the best moment ever.

What is the nicest thing anyone has ever said to you, and why? Because of the situation, or the person?

They made a statue of us
And it put it on a mountain top
Now tourists come and stare at us
Blow bubbles with their gum
Take photographs for fun, for fun

They'll name a city after us
And later say it's all our fault
Then they'll give us a talking to
Then they'll give us a talking to
Because they've got years of experience
We're living in a den of thieves
Rummaging for answers in the pages
We're living in a den of thieves
And it's contagious

We wear our scarves just like a noose
But not 'cause we want eternal sleep
And though our parts are slightly used
New ones are slave labor you can keep

We're living in a den of thieves
Rummaging for answers in the pages
We're living in a den of thieves
And it's contagious

They made a statue of us
They made a statue of us
The tourists come and stare at us
The sculptor's marble sends regards
They made a statue of us
They made a statue of us
Our noses have begun to rust
We're living in a den of thieves
Rummaging for answers in the pages
Were living in a den of thieves

And it's contagious

I love Regina.

And an Edit to come is about how much I love my family, how much I love Ikea, and how much I love watching movies, driving at night, and making fun of high school in general. And symbolism.

Edit #1Collapse )

And also, the quote that made my life (I even wrote it down!):
"When I look at pictures of food, I get really hungry." –Joe

Let’s Read!Collapse )

And some rowing…Collapse )

Also, I was making a sandwich and I had some extra lettuce, and my brother walked into the kitchen and I said “Hey, Graham, want some lettuce?” and he said “Um, sure…,”” took the lettuce, and ate it. Plain. It kind of made my day.

Michelle and I were talking about our top five favorite songs of all time, then we were talking about "High Fidelity," and junior high in general, and how all of our favorite songs are from the '90s (gotta love 'em!)....
SO. After a lot of careful consideration and a loooot of thinking, I have decided on my Top Five Favorite Songs of All Time...well, it's actually six (technically seven) but one doesn't really count.

TOP FIVE, ISH, IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER

1. Kiss Me--Sixpence None the Richer
2. Ocean Avenue--Yellowcard
3. You Get What You Give--New Radicals
4. All for You--Sister Hazel
5. Meet Virginia/Drops of Jupiter--Train
6. Always Be My Baby--Mariah Carey

I'm not sure why, but for some reason, that was really important.

Last night was one of those go out to eat, do nothing outside, watch a movie and fall asleep nights. I think those are my favorite things in the whole wide world.

I always forget how much I love being outside. I think I could live outside forever.

Though I miss rivers and tanning contests and "What are you, TWELVE?!?" moments.

There's just something about being on the water, taking breaks in the middle of a lake when you feel like it, playing the question game for hours on end, and jumping right into the water from your canoe when you get too hot. And I love making fires and watching the best I-MAX movie of all time, waking up in the middle of the night because you are too cold, never knowing what time it is. What time is it? Morning. After lunch. Time for a swim, time to watch the stars--it's all trail time, time of your life.

Camping outside, or swimming in a lake, or just being outside, etc. makes me wonder how I'm going to survive living in a big city. I know I will, but really...I like my air.

Last night was fun because we sat around and reminisced about high school crushes, and it turns out that everyone liked the same people, and everyone pretty much liked everyone, and hearing all of this come out made me happy.

I weirdly obess over things, which should end soon. For the good of so many people.

You're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow...Collapse )
