drunk girls know
that love is an astronaut
it comes back
but it's never the same.

endure the night

i want to lift my hands towards the sun
show me warmth
baby, won't you show me warmth again?

sun hands

get hot
get too close to the flame
wild open space
talk like an open book
sign me up
got no time to take a picture
i'll remember someday
all the chances we took

we're so close to something better left unknown

as one

“a true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. but to live with a soul mate forever? nah. too painful. soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave. a soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, and make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life.”
-elizabeth gilbert

i think this is one of the truest things i've ever heard.
the people we spend forever with are complementary to us,
not the same.

i don't think soul mates are always a positive experience, either.
i think they're downright terrifying .

birthday advice

'just remember - us scorpios never forget. we get even.'

-anonymous birthday twin at the restaurant where i had dinner

'may those who love me, love me.
may god turn the hearts of those who don't,
and if he can't turn their hearts,
may he turn their ankles
so i will know them by their limping.'

-my grandma
(with the afterword - 'that's bad. but kind of funny too.')


seriously though

con mis piernas y mi juventúd

por fin he encontrado
un remedio infalible
que borre del todo la culpa
no pienso quedarme a tu lado
mirando la tele y oyendo disculpas
la vida me ha dado un hambre voráz
y tu apenas me das caramelos




said it's cool
you're touchin' my hand
yeah it's cool, it's cool
where we riding to so
come on, sugar
touchin' my hand

boogie down



a perfect sonnet

my spanish professor (god bless her soul) said something in lecture yesterday that struck me as interesting. while explaining a verb tense, she said, 'and what is something if it's perfect? it's complete!'
are things viewed as perfect when they are complete? most things in life are utterly imperfect when they are completed; things never go as planned as a general rule of life as a human being on planet earth. what's more, aren't the best, most 'perfect' things in life are the ones that are never complete, ones that continue evolving and developing over time?
when things are completed, they are at a standstill. and when things are at a standstill, there's no change. granted, nothing bad will develop, but no good can grow, either. stagnation leaves no room for anything new, and i think that is the farthest thing from perfection that life has to offer.

well, all's not well
but i'm told that it'll all be quite nice
you'll be drowned in boots like mafia
but your feet will still float like christ
and i'll be damned
they were right

styrofoam boots/it's all nice on ice, alright
modest mouse

yes, i am on a modest mouse binge. it's that time of year.


today's a good day

well, it took a lot of work
to be the ass i am
and i'm really damn sure that anyone can
equally, easily
fuck you over
