La Vie en Rouge.

Harvard School of Public Health or Harvard Medical School . I've been obsessing over them all morning. I wantwantwantwantwant. I needneedneedneedneed to actually do my homework right now so I can up my chances at getting into whatever grad school I decide on. J'ai beaucoup des devoirs, surtout Francaise. Mais, Je l'aime. A demain.

Kick Push

Thursday, September 8, 2011

cookies n cream folks
     Oh Lupe, kicking and pushing. Love this song. Almost as much as I love making lists.
      For example, today, I attempted walking to class again. This is my fourth attempt this week and fourth fail. It's so unintelligent and silly, every time I'm so hopeful as I drive to school straight from work and it literally doesn't cross my mind that my leg might not be good enough. Then I end up at the nearest building to where I parked, on a chair or in a bathroom frustrated. So as I sat in the Wilk Bookstore's bathroom today and while the leg frustration was getting flushed from my system I wrote this one:
Things I've Learned From Life Since My Right Knee...Happened:
     1. Being alone is not as bad of a thing as I had imagined it to be in my head.
     2. Be sober, Listen more.
     3. Rely on the Lord.
     4. Sometimes in life you really do need help, you can't do it on your own, and that's okay.
     5. People care, genuinely, way more often than you'd expect.
     6. Don't try to make a deal with God, bargaining when you have no leverage is just a bad idea.
     7. Smiling, despite conditions, makes life better.
     8. Be careful what you laugh at.
     9. Good Sleep saturates your day life.
   10. Submission & Sacrifice are two of life's most brilliant Teachers.
     And most of all, I will forever have ingrained in my soul a refreshed love for good health. I freaking love moving, I love sports, dancing, basketball, yoga, I love using my legs to drive, to walk to class, to walk and sit where ever I want in church, at a movie, or in class, to walk up/down stairs, jumping into my bed, running, doing somersaults, climbing trees, getting out my car to fill up with gas, taking the trash out, walking down store isles, lifting boxes when I move, jumping to get something on the high shelf, being able to crawl under a table if I need to get something, etc etc.
      And I love that even without my right knee I can have an awesome time hanging out with my man and/or friends. Tonight included.

God Is an Astronaut

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

   It went down. As epically as this video I've posted here by God is an Astronaut. And like this video, I'm trying to just as thoroughly enjoy the beauty in the melancholy breakdown. I'm forever lost in whatever attitude I carry with me through life, right here in this brain resting on my head. It's times like these that make me miss Gabe, but also times like these that help me remember that I have a best friend named Gabe who is chilling in the Argentina jungles having the time of his life...and that more than anything makes me ridiculous-happy, which is the best kind of happy to feel.
     Anyways, hope everyone's doing lots of crazy-amazing things with their lives. And if you're not, then here are a few ideas: write a book - right now, about anything, make it timeless people. Go do someone a favor, expect nothing in return. Listen to "Comptine D'un Autre Ete" by Yann Tiersen. It's on Youtube. Now go have a lovely day.

here's a free one:

Sharpe, Edward

Monday, August 1, 2011

I went to the Twilight Series Concert last Thursday with a favorite to see Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. So good, so happy. Man, Life has been so good as of late. Sometimes I fear that life's going to all of a sudden take a nose dive because of how high i'm flying and how long this goodness has lasted. Just like my favorite source for advice, Eminem, says, "what goes up, must come down".
This is my favorite remix done by RAC to their song called Home. Its free, its insta-happy, its Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

I've been on an art binge since December.
