Empty Streets

"... maybe this is all pure gibberish—a product of the demented imagination of a lazy drunken hillbilly with a heart full of hate who has found a way to live out where the real winds blow—to sleep late, have fun, get wild, drink whisky, and drive fast on empty streets with nothing in mind except falling in love and not getting arrested . . . Res ipsa loquitur. Let the good times roll."
-Hunter S Thompson

I realized again the other day that this is an opportunity for something entirely new. Reinvention.
The first real chance I had at that was when I began college. All through elementary, middle, and high school I knew the same group of people and attended the same private school. Many of the people had known me since we were both young and awkward. It's difficult to break out of any box you have created for yourself in a situation like that. People occasionally did; they would come back from summer break with a makeover and new attitude--but that that was definitely the exception. Generally once you had been put into a box there, it was easier to just stay in it.
University gave me a sense of freedom. It was an entirely new location. A huge school compared to the one I had been at previously--my graduating class in high school had around 50 students-- that spread out over several acres gave me a chance at anonymity that I had never previously known. I began to thrive. It was a chance for self-exploration, as college should be, and since I was happy my grades were excellent as well.
I ended up having to take some time off of school after a year or so, and haven't gone back yet. I kept making new friends and exploring new interests, obviously, but there wasn't the same opportunity for expansion as before. The entire area had grown stale. Hampton Roads, while it has things to offer, is not a place where I wanted to spend my entire life.
Moving out here is the chance I needed to take, I think. It's giving me a chance to figure out who I want to be --who I want to be known as, what skills and traits I want to emphasize, what sort of impact I want to leave. While I had a great reputation back home and can not think of anyone who really disliked me, I still needed a fresh start somewhere new. A chance to break out.

Reliable Weather

A while back, some friends of mine showed me the page for Dutchinse. His website states that he intends to provide the reader "the most recent news that could be life saving in regards to earth changes, severe weather, radiation, space anomalies, human/animal environmental issues, and weather modification."
From what I've heard and seen, he's extremely accurate.

With that in mind, as well as the overnight earthquakes in the Pacific, I thought I'd link his site for any of my readers who may be curious.

Last night while watching TV, my boyfriend said something that made me I thought I'd share it. It's very true, but I think it applies outside of the realm of romantic relationships and into normal friendship as well:

Sometimes what people really need is to be reminded that their lover isn't going anywhere.

Salting of the Earth

You should know that there is something worse than hate and that is unlove.

Because hate is anger over something lost, hate is passion, hate is misguided, it's caring for the wrong things but it is still caring.

But unlove, unlove is to unkiss, to unremember, to unhold, to undream, to undo everything that ever was and leave smooth stone behind in its wake.

No fire.

No fury.

Just, nothing.

And that is worse than hate.

I've decided to open a second blog. This one was created with the intention of it being personal... I have decided to begin an inspirational blog which I hope will be able to offer people daily encouragement.

I created the page for it today but still need to finish designing it. Hopefully everything will be up and running in the next day or so. I will obviously still be continuing posts here as well.

In case anyone who comes through here wants to find it, the new blog, follow this link:

Let me help you soar...
