It's beginning to look a lot like...


I know, you were expecting something more clever. But I am neck deep in reports to edit, projects to finish, and meetings to lead and organize so my brain is unable to come up with anything witty.

The good news is that I have entered the world of smartphones. I picked up my iPhone 4S last week and I'm a new person. I didn't even realize what I had been missing out on.

So, in honor of my newest achievement of graduating from my dumbphone are my latest instagram pics highlighting the wintery season:

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

This is one of my top favorite books ever. I cannot wait for this movie.

“Humans are the only animal that blushes, laughs, has religion, wages war, and kisses with lips. So in a way, the more you kiss with lips, the more human you are. And the more you wage war.”

“We need enormous pockets, pockets big enough for our families and our friends, and even the people who aren't on our lists, people we've never met but still want to protect. We need pockets for boroughs and for cities, a pocket that could hold the universe.” 

“My life story is the story of everyone I've ever met.” 

“Sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I'm not living.” 
-Johnathan Safran Foer

It's Brilliant.

The walks home

Whit and I have this recent problem of being cheesy and nostalgic and it is carrying over to our blogs. Hence, all of the recent posts about how wonderful the people in my life are. Maybe it's because I am graduating soon and I'm realizing that we can't all live within a mile radius of one another forever. We can't always have late night talks and joke about each other's futures and text about how much we hate school. We can't drop by each other's apartments at a moment's notice. We can't meet up on campus. It doesn't last forever. I'm trying to be ok with that fact. So far, I'm not doing too well. It shows in the fact that I am slacking on homework, haven't graded the giant stack of papers on my desk, avoid checking my email, and haven't tried looking for a job. All because I just want to be with the people I love, for the glimpse of time that I can. 

And these walks home get me every time.

Burn, Burn, Burn

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars."

Jack Kerouac

I have amazing people in my life. There is so much to write on this subject but I'll let Kerouac's quote speak for itself. I am lucky and blessed to have mad people in my life. I am amazed by it every day.
