Sometimes I feel llike Winnie the Pooh…”Think, think, think” How the heck can I figure this out? Where in the world is the answer to this problem? Ever have a problem like that? One that you know there must be an answer to, and hey you’re an intelligent person… right? So where is that blasted answer? “Think, think, think” *looks under the mouse pad*

If only I could learn that when I look the hardest for something it’s going to elude me. When you go frantically rushing through the house searching for your keys, your eyes just can’t see them. It’s only when you think calmly that you remember where they are. Sometimes looking with your eyes doesn’t work, you have to look with your mind. And sometimes thinking with your mind doesn’t work, you have to think with your heart. Sometimes nothing works and you just have to wait.

And we think we have it so bad. I think I have it “so bad” a lot. But you know, it takes just one glimpse into a truly troubled life to make me realize all I have, all I take for granted every day. I am strengthened by the courage of others. To see someone who has sufficient reason to be pissed at the world stretch out open arms in love is amazing. This is the strength I strive to have. This is the person I want to be. Everytime, everywhere I see it, I take what I can and learn…and grow.

Today has been highly communicative thus far. I have received at least twice as many emails as usual, and from twice as many people. That’s so cool. Anyway, I have secured myself an internship at O Entertainment. Ought to work out well. I am excited to start the final chapter of my undergraduate life. I am a little sleepy from last night’s celebration, luckily I have nothing pressing (bad printshop humor) to do at work today. Heh 🙂

Today is my parents 30th wedding anniversary. That is incredible to me. I can’t imagine having been a part of something for 30 years. Maybe it’s because I can’t get beyond the fact that I’m only 23. The level of committment it takes to make a marriage last 30 years is beyond my scope of understanding. I know it isn’t easy. I know it isn’t always hard. And I know they had no concept of that kind of time when they said their “I do”s. Making this milestone is highly commendable, and I am proud of my mom and dad.

I love you guys. Happy Anniversary.

Ever find yourself quitely singing a song, even in your mind…and completely butchering the lyrics? And it’s not that you don’t know the words, you just have been singing similar sounding words unknowingly. Heh, makes for some pretty interesting tunes.

THERE WAS LIFE BEFORE THE COMPUTER

An application was for employment
A program was a TV show
A cursor used profanity
A keyboard was a piano!

Memory was something that you lost with age
A CD was a bank account!
And if you had a broken disk,
It would hurt when you found out!

Compress was something you did to garbage
Not something you did to a file
And if you unzipped anything in public
You’d be in jail for a while!

Log on was adding wood to a fire
Hard drive was a long trip on the road
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
And a backup happened to your commode!

Cut- you did with a pocket knife
Paste- you did with glue
A web was a spider’s home
And a virus was the flu!

I guess I’ll stick to my pad and paper
And the memory in my head
I hear nobody’s been killed in a computer crash
But when it happens they wish they were dead!
