Take off

I'm tired. I close my eyes as our plane waits for it's turn on the runway. Another plane lands and we turn, lining up with the long stretch, streaked with black marks from incoming planes. We sit, waiting. The engines whine and we begin our quick, swaying journey down the designated route. I yawn as we lift into the air smoothly, feeling gravity pull me heavily into my seat. The city is so small from my window. Goodbye Minnesota. I yawn again as I settle in for our few-hour flight to California.

Long time no see

Terribly sorry it has been so long. I plan to keep up better as of now.

I've mostly working but I also took a trip to California to visit my Grandparents. I've had a lot on my mind lately. A bit to much to put here.
Oh! My birthday! Haha I almost forgot about it which doesn't happen to often. I worked, got off early, went on a walk by myself in a new dress I got, caught fireflies, named them, danced around in the dark yard like a dork, and replied to the posts on my wall. That's about it. It was a good birthday :)

Today I slept until 4pm. My body just needed the sleep I guess. I didn't go to bed late or anything.... When I got up I started a load of laundry, did a little cleaning, took a shower, wrote a bit, talked to a few friends on facebook, and texted my Daddy. My Aunt came home and I caught up with her a bit, brought some of my laundry up from the basement, and lazed around on the computer while eating dinner. I'm still doing that actually... *shrugs*
It's in the 90s outside so I don't really feel like going for a walk. (Even though I do feel like going for a walk.) You know what I mean.
I just remembered that I wrote a post on the plane to California... (I tried to sleep on the way home.)
I think I will find that notebook and post it.

Once again sorry for my absence interwebz

Okay so that was a fail acronym thingy but....mmm. I want a hug. I got one from Sephre earlier but man, I'm just kind of bumming right now...

Hugzzzzzz. Wanttttt.

Ugh. I just....I just really want to be in Minnesota right now. I need to support my friend and I feel so helpless. I'm going to see her for just a little bit this Tuesday before I fly out to California but....ugh. This coming week is going to be really hard. I'm already emotionally exaughsted and I haven't even hugged one of  my best friends who's dad just died or been to visit my grandpa who is dying soon.

Death. I seriously hate you. With a burning passion.

All I can feel is sad though. I can't even be mad...

  • General Idea of this post:
    Don't write dumb stuff on people's statuss that could make them feel bad and is negative.
  • No matter who it is you don't know where that person is at and how it will affect them. my facebook status was just "Bored." One of my friends commented she was bored too yeah blah blah blah. About an hour later someone comments on my status that only boring people get bored according to so and so. I was rather surprised at this passive aggressive insult and simply responded with ":o"

    Now, I may have a history with this woman's daughter but this woman is also a family friend. I really wasn't expecting this to come from her as I have always seen her as a kind person. 
    Not exactly helping my "trust no one" mentality...
    Soooooo here are some various quotes on kindness:
    Never look down on anybody unless you're helping him up.
    It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice. ~Author Unknown
    Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you - not because they are nice, but because you are. ~Author Unknown
    If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. ~Dalai Lama
    Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it. ~Author Unknown
    Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not. ~Samuel Johnson
    When I was young, I admired clever people. Now that I am old, I admire kind people. ~Abraham Joshua Heschel
    and finally what I set my status to:
    You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson  

    I don't like confrontation and there was no reason for one so I just picked the quote I thought least direct. I did become rather upset when I realized that this person had insulted my friend in the process of insulting me. 

    If you are going to insult me that is fine. Go ahead. 
    Don't you ever insult my friends. 

    Oh, interwebz, how lovely this life is is it not?
