When the only thing you can do, well. Is sit back and watch things slip through your hands. No one wants to watch an opportunity fade away. But sometimes, it’s just one of those things you have to let air out. It doesn’t mean it heals completely; just enough to where you can move on. You flip through the old photos, the empty memories, and you still laugh at the old jokes. But it doesn’t quite do justice to what used to be.
A group of girls in my lab today were total. Idiots. Like furreal. They literally had to have our AI walk them through this painfully simple test that involved throwing some dye in a tube, diluting it with water, and sticking it in a machine and pressing a button. I would not be suprised if they got lost and died in the lab room because they couldn’t find the door. These were the top picks my lab mates and I thought were worth sharing: 5. “This is sooooo hard!” 4. “I’m so confused…” 3. “So do we fill out the numbers for the test we just ran before or after we run the next test?” 2. “There’s only 5 slots in the machine and we have to do six (seperate) trials! That’s impossible, the people who wrote this lab book are idiots.”
Annnd numberr 1: 1. “I don’t know how to work this machine! How do we start the test??” (On this machine is a keypad, a clear buttton, a red button, and a green button, all clearly labeled with their functions.)
I wish I didn't give a crap; unfortunately, this is not how it works.
I wish I could make people understand that sometimes, people change. But sometimes, they don’t. They just stay plain mean and malicious. There is a saying- fool me once, shame on you. But fool me twice… now I am the fool. It isn’t always this way; but some people just don’t see it.
And now you’ve grown up With this notion that you were to blame And you seem so strong sometimes But I know that you still feel the same As that little girl who shined like an angel Even after his lazy heart put you through hell
I wish you could see that Still you try to impress him But he never will listen
Oh broken angel Were you sad when he crushed all your dreams Oh broken angel Inside you’re dying ‘cause you can’t believe
You know… I call a truce. If what he’s looking for is for me to admit he got to me, here I am admitting it. It didn’t take you this long to break me down; it took you this long to make me admit it to myself. You had me broken the day you said what you did. In that moment, I knew things would never be the same. If you wanted to make me jealous, it worked. If you’ve spent the last 2 years trying to hurt me and make me shed tears and put me through hell, you succeeded. If you want me to say that to your face so that you’ll leave me to this realization, that is what I’ll do. You win. Just please… stop rubbing it in my face.
“Some folks say, ‘All truth is relative, it just depends on what you believe.’ You know, ‘hey man, ain’t no way to know for sure who God is or what’s really true.’ But that means you believe your own statement; that there’s no way to know what’s really true. You’re saying that that statement is true. You’re killing yourself. If what’s true for you is true for you and what’s true for me is true for me, what if my truth says your’s is a lie? Is it still true?”—Lecrae Moore (via iboastngod)
“Tomorrow’s never promised - but it is we swear; think we holding our own, just a fist full of air. God has never been obligated to give us life, if we fought for our rights - we’d be in hell tonight.”—Lecrae (via cuttingsfromtherightside)
He added me on face book, thought i might know him, turns out I don’t, and my roommate thought it funny to give him my number. Now he;s blowing up my phone, asking me if I’m single, where I live, wanting a picture of me, and is in general a creeper. help. me.
You were a sweet loving friend to me. You taught me that people are people, and that riches and goods don’t make them good person. Usually it has the opposite effect. You taught me that just because something doesn’t fit right it doesn’t make you a freak. You taught me fashionable is not always the best thing to be. Living out of the crowd should be more popular than living in it. You taught me to never turn a blind eye to people, but pray for the ones that made your life miserable. You taught me to love. Just love on people, give them hope, a smile, an inch, a mile, anything you can give. You had a beautiful heart, and I will never forget that. You taught me that worms and fish don’t bite. You showed me that girls can be braver than boys. You were a role model and a dear friend. You held an entire church together like glue. And even in death, you had an enourmous impact on lives of people. Happy birthday, my dear beloved friend, I miss you, Dairy Queen. I keep your father and grandparents in my mind and check in on them whenever I can. Even though you were seventeen, your light shone brighter than anyone’s. You are missed and loved so much.
In loving memory of Lisa Marie Rowe, March 21st, 1988 to October 30, 2005. Luv you Lis.
Family and friends. Late night runs to Ivanhoes and Wallyworld. Upholstery cleaners and broken brakes. Greentown and unforgettable situations that I always seem to find myself in (true). Sunsets at the lake and stargazing in a warm spring night. What I have waited for a long time, and gave me a fierce longing for summer nights and bonfires and work and being able to be in Greentown for days on end. I thoroughly am craving summer. Please come quickly.
With the roommate in greentown to get a call at four am (we were watchin movies anywho) to take my dad to work. bleh. so here i am, now unable to get any decent amount of sleep. so, here i am, on tumblr.
“[Peace] is the highest and most strenuous act of the soul, but an entirely harmonious act, in which all our powers and affections are blending in a beautiful proportion, and sustain and perfect one another. It is more than the silence after storms. It is as the concord of all melodious sounds … an alliance of love with all beings, a sympathy with all that is pure and happy, a surrender of every separate will and interest, a participation of the spirit and life of the universe…. This is peace, and the true happiness of [humanity]”— William Ellery Channing
