I loved that story. I want to be that person with the 200 car funeral procession. Mark Twain once said, "Let us all endeavor to live so that when we die, even the undertaker will be sorry." That's my goal in life. When I'm gone, whenever that is, I want to have touched as many lives as is humanly possible.

You know, that may be my next school paper commentary (my first one, as some know, is on'll be in the first paper. I'm pleased with it. I think they wanted me to bash cheating, but I didn't do that).

As for the hurricane, it's slowing down and is supposed to make landfall on Sunday. Slowing down is not good, apparently, because then it can turn and hit us. I still don't think it will. I think we'll get some nasty-ass weather and be done with it. If the power holds up, that'll be AWESOME. That's my second concern, though. My first is regarding if my roof is going to blow off or not, a la the Three Little Pigs.

In other news, making that list about my likes and dislikes really opened my eyes to all the other things I like. Small things like how Avril Lavigne sings the word "breakable" in "My Happy Ending", and the way Kinsey lays down on the floor (it's so weird; I can't explain it, but it's so cute).

I talked to Court this morning :)'s so good to catch up and just talk about everything with someone you've known for such a long time (thirteen years!).

Hurricane days

"We all have choices. We all have voices." -Avril Lavigne

I am: in an organizational mood.

Today we finished putting up all the shutters for the house. I got yelled at briefly, several times, for random things. *shrugs* Everyone's stressed. We've been having "squalls", which are basically large gusts of wind and rain for brief periods of time caused by the outer rings of the hurricane. I know everyone is saying the hurricane better hit after all the work they've done, but I really hope it doesn't. Maybe as it slows down, it'll turn and go somewhere else. *crosses fingers*

I'm in the middle of organizing my room. For those of you who have never been in my room (which is most of you), I have these old-school bunk beds (the wood kind..I never see those anymore) that I've had since I was 2. I sleep on the bottom, so the wood connecting the bottom to the top is a great space to be artistic. I've made collages of pictures on both headboards (the one at my head and the one at my feet), and I've also taped a rather long Sex and the City homage to the nearest wall. I just keep adding to it. I went through some magazines and pulled out pictures I liked. I took down the old stuff on one side and threw most of it away. I put up a small picture of John Mayer, one of Oliver...something...(the guy from What a Girl Wants? He's cute!), one of Ashlee Simpson, one of Avril Lavigne, and then I have two headshots of Stacey Farber (Ellie) and Miriam MacDonald (Emma) from Degrassi: the Next Generation. I guess they did some kind of makeup/modeling thing for Teen People, so yay! I've been cutting out letters to spell their names underneath the pictures. It's awesome. I'm making an Avenue Q collage to put up...I'm just not sure where I'm going to do it. I wish I hadn't been so stupid and lost my poster of Kate Monster...*sigh*. Oh well. Christmas, maybe?

I have to do some actual cleaning in my room. It's a disaster zone: papers everywhere, covering every surface, books all over the place. I really need a space where I can just hang out. Lately I've realized that I don't consider either of my parent's homes my home. It's kind of like a spiritual homelessness. Hopefully this will change all of that.

It's so nice to be able to relax and do whatever I want. The hurricane keeps me from going all over the place in my car, and from going to school, forcing me to be in one place for more than a few hours and to chill.

Headshot #1

For some reason, I can't downsize the it's super big. I'm putting it behind a cut. I'm not narcissistic, I swear! I'll put the other one up when I can get it to d/l onto photobucket.
