Haha, no. I kid I kid.
It's approximately 5:30pm on Sunday, and tomorrow is a holiday. What holiday? No idea! But it's a holiday nonetheless.
Know what that means?
I get to work on my final exam (aka take home test) during my holiday!! Yay!
No but for reals (... yo) I am really excited. As soon as it's handed it I'm on 'vacation'.
I use quotes because I won't really be on vacation.
I'll have 4 days to get organized and set camp up, then I'm at camp as a volunteer councilor for a week.
Then it's back home, getting ready for school, then school.
Somewhere in the middle of all this I plan on finally getting moved into my new bedroom, or even the wall painted.
Or maybe even baseboards and that's it.
Yes, there are no baseboards in the room. Don't ask me why.

Anyways, that's 'boutz its... yo.

(yes I am 1337)

As you know my journal used to be FRIENDS ONLY but no more!
If you still want to me add me as a friend - feel free - if you wish to disown me as a friend - by all means.
'Tis up to you!

Cancer is so limited:

It cannot cripple love
It cannot shatter hope
It cannot corrode faith
It cannot destroy peace
It cannot kill friendships
It cannot suppress memories
It cannot silence courage
It cannot invade the soul
It cannot steal eternal life
It cannot conquer the spirit

I guess my mind has been spilling out with so many thoughts recently. I don't know how to explain this, I just keep writing down what I think up.

Stop what?
Go where?
Listen to who?
Hold on
Why not let go?

Why aren't the sentences
Are there missing words?
Were they stolen?
Keep them from me...
...I'd rather not understand

Too many questions
Not enough answers
Or too few answers
To all the questions
Will my questions be answered?
Or are they the answer to your question?

With a deep breath
I am consumed in the cold
My skin breaks
And I feel alive
Was I born before
Or is this just the start?
The wind burns my face
Tears run down my cheeks
Now I know the answer
To the question I dare not speak

Not how it should be
Who decides?
Do you?
Do I?
Can I?
Can you?
Can we?
We must
Who decides?

Are you listening
Or are you just hearing me
Am I speaking
Or saying nothing at all
For too long have these been confused
Will we ever know the difference
Can you see
Do you want to know

Jotting words down
Burning [how it burns]
Cold heat
Why does it keep burning?
Shut it off
It's gone
I'm gone
It's over

Will I ever be what they call
Do I fit in?
Will I ever be what they call
Do I want to be?
Like standing outside a window
Looking inside your house of joy
Feeling like an outsider
Do I make myself alone?
Or do you?
Who is to blame?
No one
Life is just
.... too complicated

You fear
You're weak
Why does fear mean weak?
Do not those who fear have strength?
Are not emotions what it is to be human?
Why must we question who we are?
What makes us question?
Who must we ask?
Why do we fear?
We're weak
But are we weak because we fear
Or do we fear because we're weak?

When did fear become the absence of strength?
Is not a lack of emotions an absence of strength?
Are emotions signs of strength
Or weakness?
How do we decide?
Is there someone to ask?
Will we ever know the truth?
Should we?
Do we want to?

I've broken away from reality
And I don't think I'm coming back
Got my head on straight
But I'm completely off track

Something you need to remember always ............
The Mayonnaise Jar and 2 cups of coffee...

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar.. and the 2 cups of coffee... A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was. The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous "yes." The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed. "Now," said the professor, as the laughter subsided, "I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things-your God, family, your children, your health, your friends,and your favorite passions-things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, and your car. The sand is everything else-the small stuff. "If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued, "there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal." Take care of the golf balls first, the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand." One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. "I'm glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend."
