Thoughts [but then again, what else would they be?]

One of the undeniable things about life is that it never stops changing and is always unpredictable, and even though this is one of the scariest things about life, it's also one of the most comforting.

Hummus is one of the best foods ever.

Everything is tinged with melancholy...

Not having my friends around makes me sad.

I'm gonna live forever....I'm gonna learn how to fly....

Those are just a few random thoughts plucked from my mind (the last is a song though, not random thought processes like the rest. haha). Lately, when people ask how I am, I never know quite what to say. There are so many things I love about my life, but there are also so many things about it that frustrate me, so that at any given moment I may be elated or down in the dumps. I have gained a lot of perspective lately, though, which helps so incredibly much if you're an overly emotional person like myself. Perspective shows you so can show you when things are worth crying about, when they're worth being excited over, and that no matter what, even if whatever it is seems devestatingly horrible, something will change and make it better in some way or another. However, I usually prefer when my mind doesn't make that change come within two minutes, because usually in two more minutes I'm right back to feeling how I did before and then I just start thinking I'm bipolar!

Also, having the ability to write songs can be a lifesaver. :)

So, on a brighter and somewhat shallower note, I redecorated the walls of my room recently.

The pictures on the left were all made by my very talented sister, and the poster was made by myself for the dressing room I shared with one of my friends for Introspect.

Also, last week I found the exact shade of nailpolish I'd been looking for, which made me happy! It's sort of right between white and pink...

There. Classy. Pretty. I like. :D

I've also been reading Les Miserables again. Wonderful book. :) I started reading it during Phantom of the Opera, and even though that was back on February, I'm only on page 115 out of more than a thousand. It's not the biggest page-turner ever (not yet, at least), but I really love the style in which it's written. It's very unique, often going off on really random tangents, but there's also a piercing simplicity and clarity in everything he says.

So, it's almost 3 am. Wrenching myself out of my summer sleep schedule is NOT going to be easy when school starts. :P
