Thanks for sticking it out the last few months without regular posts. The last post I wrote before my unintentional, quarter-long hiatus should actually never have been written- it is so boring. So, I’m sorry for that! In all honesty, it was my feeble attempt to keep blogging even though I could feel life getting too complicated for me to handle. Anyway here’s a quick run down of what’s happened the past several months:
OMG I DONT WANT TO RELIVE IT! it was so exhausting.
On another note, I get the Photojojo newsletter- which you should all subscribe to because it is the freakin coolest- and it informed me about PummelVision. Here is my internet life in photos (check it out, you might see yourself!), enjoy:
so i’ve just decided to go to Paris tomorrow.
and when i say “just decided” I mean like literally 5 minutes ago I decided. to be honest, i have no idea why im going- other than i feel like getting out of Rennes and Dylan is celebrating his birthday in Paris! haha i should really stay in Rennes and move from my current dorm into the new dorm building across the hall this weekend, but since I have from the 4th to the 10th to make the transition I’m going to use all of it and party it up in Paris in the meantime.
However. this last minute trip means one thing, and one thing only for tonight:
dun. dun. dun….
1. pick up my shit.
2. pack for paris.
3. pack room slightly (i.e. start to pack up my shiz for the big move).
4. write some letters (two down so far!).
5. deal with all my email/ DU credit approvals etc.
6. eat dinner.
7. wash dishes.
8. make sweet love to paolo nutini. <3
And there you have it.
that is my plan for ce soir. i lead a riveting life, i know. teehee.
Carpe diem. Seize the day. Make the most of today. Everyday. Of life.
I keep thinking about how important it is to be true to yourself and to satisfy yourself- your spirit, your soul, your aspirations and goals- on a broader scale rather than on day to day, quotidian terms. I don’t want to take for granted my time here… I want to take advantage of it. I want to go out and explore. Take pictures. Feel free. Connect. Be happy.
The song “I Wish I Could Go Back to College” from the musical Avenue Q keeps coming back to me… it goes “I wish I could go back to college/ …I wish I had taken more pictures”. I know my time here, both in France and in college, is short. The song kind of reminds me of that and how I don’t want to look back with regrets.
I already posted a “Words to Live By” quote by Mark Twain here, but I think it captures this feeling perfectly, so I’ll share it again. It goes:
In 20 years, you will be more disappointed by what you didn’t do than by what you did.
I think it’s something we all need to be reminded of once in awhile :)
Make the most of your day life.
