Thinking thoughting thunk

"I dream of a love that even time will lie down and be still for." ~Sandra Bullock, Practical Magic

"Love is passion. Obsession. Someone you can’t live without. Someone you fall head over heals for. Find someone you can love like crazy, and will love you the same way back. Listen to your heart. No sense in life without this. To make the journey without falling deeply in love, you haven’t lived a life at all. You have to try, because if you haven’t tried, you haven’t lived." ~Anthony Hopkins, Meet Joe Black

"Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it’s cracked up to be. That’s why people are so cynical about it...it really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don’t risk everything, you risk even more." ~Erica Jong

"Love conquers all; let us too yield to love." (Omnia vineit Amor; et nos cedamus Amori.) ~Virgil, Eclogues X

I read those quotes and I think about love and I don't know what's gonna happen or how I feel. But then I see the next 5, 10, and 20 years and they're not that bad. In fact, they're pretty happy for the most part. And then I read this quote: "Idiot. Love isn't how you feel. It's what you do." ~Madeline L'Engle, A Wind in the Door And I think about you. And I think about us. And I think about how I pray that if there is someone else I'm supposed to be with that God shows me. And I think about how I haven't really dated anyone since we broke up. And I think. Right now it's just thinking but it's a lot of thinking. I don't know what else to do.

For Jeremy

“Begin challenging your own assumptions. Your assumptions are your window to the world. Scrub them off every once in awhile, or the light won't come in.” ~Alan Alda

“What is life? An illusion, a shadow, a story. And the greatest good is little enough: for all life is a dream, and dreams themselves are only dreams.” ~Pedro Calderon de la Barca

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

“My life may not be something special, but it’s never been lived before.” ~Ani Difranco

ARGH

Family members suck. Especially the ones who watch wayyy too many of those stupid People's Court Judge Judy things on tv. I need my dad to co-sign a loan so I can pay for Australia but he wants to sign a contract with me first and he's being all stupid about it and now I'm frustrated so I'm eating cookie dough to drown out my anger since I don't drink.

That's it.
