TED talk

this is really interesting. i had definitely noticed this happening, but i hadn't really thought about what kind of affect it would have on us.

ice ice baby

i've been having disturbing dreams for the past month and a half/two months.
i wouldn't call them nightmares, because i don't wake up scared, but they're just not good dreams. really dark and twisted things happen.

the other night i dreamed that i was dying slowly and no one believed me. i was leaning over a sink feeling really weak and i had a really bad nosebleed. everyone thought i was just being dramatic and kept telling me that it was just a nosebleed, but i would tell them that it can't be just a nosebleed, i'd never had a nosebleed in my entire life. i was hemorrhaging inside. no one believed me. after a while, someone pulled my shirt sleeve aside and noticed my entire body was blue and bruised, because i was bleeding internally, but now it was too late to do anything about it.

nice hey? hmm.


side note: i hate winter. it gets way too cold and makes me a hermit. this winter i wont have access to a car like i'm used to, so i'm really going to have to push myself to man up and face the cold if i don't want to kill my social life for a couple months lol. ugh. when you know that it's scientifically possible for any exposed skin to get frost bite in two minutes, and you have a 10 minute walk, and probably another 10 minute wait, for your gets really hard to leave the house.

seeing double

i thought i understood it

I thought I understood it
That I could grasp it
But I didn’t
Not really
I knew the smudgeness of it
The pink-slippered-all-containered-semi-precious eagerness of it
I didn’t realize it would sometimes be more than whole
The wholeness was a rather luxurious idea
Because its the halves that halve you in half
Didn’t know
Don’t know about the in between bits
The gore-y bits of you
And gore-y bits of me

songs that have made me cry

one of my friends is being ripped away from her boyfriend and is about to attempt the dreaded long distance relationship. it seems that quite a few people i know have been in that situation. it's weird that one of my first thoughts when she found out his leaving date was "i should see if she wants me to compile a list of sad songs to cry to." then i thought about how that's weird, but she totally would be down.
i think we all do it. some people read something sad, some people watch tear jerkers, and some of us put on sad music. i do it all. sometimes you just need to make yourself cry when it wont come out on its own.

so, here are a few that have made me cry for various reasons over the past few years.

i'm a suck. yes, i know.
i'm sure there are a lot more, but these were the first few that came to mind.
