“if you’ll wait around a while…”

what I’ve decided:
I’m going to chill the fuck out. To do this I’m going go to accupuncture for the first time. I’m also going to start seeing a counselor. My stress and anxiety are through the roof! Any advice is much appreciated. What I already know is not working….
I love lists
I think way too much about shit sometimes and take on too much. See above about chilling out!
I love the song “The Promise” by When in Rome. Thanks for the mix Jeremy! I hadn’t heard this song in a while and its just so great. The lyrics “I’m sorry but I’m just thinking of the right words to say. I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be. But if you’ll wait around a while…..”
I absolutely love this graphic novel I started at the library yesterday after work called Blankets. I read like 200 pages at the library and stopped at like 450 before I went to bed. The art is beautiful. Black and white and full of emotion. There were a few pages where I laughed out loud and couldn’t stop laughing. It had to do with Craig, the author/artist, and his brother, Philip-who shared a bed growing up-peeing on each other one evening in sorta of a peeing war. This started when Philip teased Craig, while they laid in bed, that he had peed exactly one drop of pee on Craig. Really he had just licked his finger and put it on his brother’s back. It sounds childish and it is and its what makes it so awesome! Its very real and raw and hilarious the way it plays out. The expressions on the characters’ faces are amazing. It was the first time I laughed like that while reading a book/graphic novel/whatev in a long time. So, yeah, this is an autobiography about this dude’s family life and falling in love the first time his senior year of high school. He was raised in a rural Wisconsin town as an evangelical who didn’t ever fit in at school or in his religion and I think it’ll get to how he moves away from Christianity. Its not a religious book, but rather religion is a part of his character…The relationship between him and his brother and him and his first love are so tender and sweet at moments….its just beautiful.
My love of Mark Rothko continues.
Passion is essential.
