Just Forget the World

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me
and just forget the world?
-Snow Patrol
Sometimes, I really wish that you could just ignore everything and everyone. I wish I could just be me, now, not worrying about the future. Can you imagine how simple life would be if you could just live in the present? Not just in the present, but in your own little bubble, where your actions just affect you or those who you chose to let into your bubble.
I don't hate the world or anyone in it. Sometimes I just want to be free from expectations, from obligations, and from commitments.

Grinds my Gears

Know what really Grinds my Gears?

This sign on the highway. It says Bryan ROAD. Why is ROAD in all caps? Do they not know that all caps is the text way of yelling? AAAHHHH. See you knew that was supposed to be loud.

I can understand wanting to put an emphasis on something. If the sign read BRYAN road, that would be okay, but nooo, some misinformed person wanted people to yell ROAD every time they drove by. Who emphasizes that word? Its like saying the wizard OF oz. No one cares about the "of". Its just there to connect the cool Wizard part with the Oz part. Why ROAD? tell me. Tell Me! TELL ME!! Its BRYAN road! ! !!!

And that, is what REALLY grinds my gears.

My life is complete. I finally got a BOC from after more than a year of wishing, hoping, and staying up till midnight every night (just in case). Hopefully something interesting will be inside. :D

What a Novel idea!

Since November is National Novel writing month, I decided that I would give it a try. Why not? I like to write, and what a great thing to accomplish. The challenge is to write 50,000 words by the 30th of November. I think I can do it. If not at least I will have tried. The site encourages you to write for quantity rather than quality. You can always go back and edit. At some point I will put up what I have, but for now you will have to wonder.

My novel will be borrowing stories from here and will Chronicle my life. I think its semi-interesting enough and I can make a story. My starting point is my senior year of college. We will see if I can make a book on that. If you have any suggestions I would appreciate them. Also, I need a title. The working one is "It Should Have Been Easy".
