By your side I’m most quiet and most unquiet, most inhibited and most free.

Miss W with her roaster pen. They’re around 9ish pounds each this year. Maybe just the one was 9 pounds, I don’t have all the weights in my head. But that’s pretty dang good. Also, I feel it’s important to note I’ve never read any John Green and have no plans to, but it was a good quote. It bothers me that all of the quotes about pride are negative. I don’t see anything negative in being proud of your accomplishments as long as you remain rooted in reality. If you can’t be proud of what you’ve done, what’s the point in doing it?

three things i know today:
1) we skipped another week somewhere in there and i don’t mind at all.
2) i miss doing a 365 with sarah.
3) this hair is an intelligent and belligerent life form all on its own.

There are times that one treasures for all one’s life, and such times are burned clearly and sharply on the material of total recall. I felt very fortunate that morning.

The key to a happy life is to have accomplishments to be proud of and purpose to look forward to, and at the moment I had both. How wonderful it was to be me.

The essence of the independent mind lies not in what it thinks, but in how it thinks.

Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. It means never having to play it cool about how much you like something. It’s basically a license to proudly emote on a somewhat childish level rather than behave like a supposed adult. Being a geek is extremely liberating.

Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing.

042 wm 914242.52 (abraham lincoln) OK, technically I’m not done til August. But they don’t hold a commencement for us summer II kids, so June it is. But check it out. I totally did it. Now to tackle that GRE for grad school …
P.S. My skirt looks hella short in the bronco pix, but it really is not. It had ridden up a bit and I didn’t realize it. We were kind of in a hurry. Everyone wanted their picture taken at the bronco. wm9164 wm9141 wm9142 wm9143 wm9144 wm9165 wm9166
