I’ve been at the library for going on four hours now. And I’ll probably be here a few more. When did I get all this work??!!? Reading. Papers. Projects. Applications. blah blah blah. I just want to be outside playing. Not inside the Sojourner Truth Library, second floor, hidden away in a quiet corner doing work. I could totally use a Starbucks iced vanilla non-fat chai latte and a...
Forever starts...THIS December?
This beautiful couple is my cousin Daniel and his fiancée Leslie. He’s flippin’ awesome and I love her to bits! They were scheduled to get married December 2011 but due to an uncooperative United States Navy, the wedding was switched to THIS December.

I believe in insane optimism. I believe in challenging what people think is impossible. I believe in giving every drop of yourself to what you love. I believe a good, long, over-dramatic cry does in fact ease a broken heart. I believe there can never be enough cheese on a pizza, trust in a friendship, or shoes in a closet. I believe that passion can override reason. I believe that no one else can...

“Don’t go looking for boys in the dark. They’ll say pretty things then leave you with scars. DO go looking for boys in the park. For that is where the real gentlemen are….” A Streamstress’s Verse, 1898
Who said words don't hurt?

The fact that we cannot turn on the TV or pick up...
