Once upon a time
Did it all in faith
You were looking for somewhere
To let the fire remain
That was the past
And reverse was our future
Physical attraction while a moment bends
Doesn't matter how we get there
It was made to end
And it ends just like it starts
In this town

Reviewing 2010

This year wasn't the most eventful year, but it wasn't exactly boring either. Here's a quick review of 2010:

January: I had to quit my job a Drury this month. I also decided to became a
vegetarian, and I bought my beautiful iMac!

February: I wallowed in self-pity. I felt like a failure for not being a productive
member of society. This was not a great month, to say the least.

March: I started my first "real" job. I'm glad that I had the opportunity to work
for this company, and I met some fantastic people.

April: One of my best friends got engaged!

May: M and I moved to our pretty apartment. We've slowly realized that it's
actually a little ghetto. We also had a BATHROOM FULL OF KITTENS for about
a week.

June: I went to KC with M and got to hang out with her family and friends as well
meet some new people.

July: Early in the month, I had a family reunion in STL. The best part was that
the hotel offered three free drinks every night to each guest (21+). Later
in the month, I turned 24, had a fantastic Birthday Weekend, went to
Branson with the fam, and scandalized my brother with Mr. Milwaukee in
the hot tub. #successfulmonth

August: M and I went to the Lake for Jake's birthday, and I GOT M TO GO CANOEING!

September: I adopted the newest addition to the household--Tobias! He's such a special

October: Mom and I went to STL on her birthday. We saw Maggie perform, and on the way
home, stopped in Rolla to spend time with Jake.

November: I quit my first "real" job, and went back to the office that I love. I'm so
happy to be back with my people!

December: This month has been busy (of course) with the holidays. I've been able to
spend time with friends and family that I don't get to see very often, and
that has been so lovely!

Cold Feet

I think we can all learn something from the Russians. Vodka is an excellent source of warmth.

Strange Feeling

I have such great relationships with Jake, Maggie, and Abe. It makes me sad that I most likely won't be close to Isaac.

I can't get dragged into that whole mess, though.

The best I can do is (when he gets older) let him know that I'll be there for him if he ever needs anything.

It still feels so strange to have a half-brother (who is twenty-three years [to the day] younger than I am).

But, it's hard to ignore now that I've met* and fallen completely in love with him.

*I met him October 17. I hadn't planned on meeting him for a long time, but I bumped into him (and his mom and his other half-sisters) unexpectedly in the park. I wasn't emotionally prepared, but when I held him and he laughed and feel asleep in my arms.

"Perhaps there is some truth to the notion that stars collide or are out of balance in the universe and thus, in disarray, exert an influence upon individuals here on earth."

From All He Ever Wanted by Anita Shreve

[Note: This book is actually not that fantastic]
