why didn't anyone tell me about this before?

I found this little treasure today:
for as you may know
i love beautiful quotes

words that can capture
a thought
a feeling
a truth
just right

now that's hard to do.

The Ethical Exhibitionist: From George Orwell's "Such, Such Were the Joys"

The Ethical Exhibitionist: From George Orwell's "Such, Such Were the Joys": "'No one can look back on his schooldays and say with truth that they were altogether unhappy.'"

i want to go to africa


my way. please.

I would describe myself as easy going, if you asked.
I would tell you that I'm a laid back,
go with the flow,
takes-things-in-stride kinda girl.
I might even suggest that you
stop stressing!
chill out (dude)!

...but then again...
the secret truth is..
I like to get my way
and I like things done on my time table
and I get cranky when things go wrong
and I might even get mad
or cry
(and I probably don't even know why I'm crying)
but things aren't right
and it's not okay
and i can't take it!

it's only later when I realize that I've given myself way.

no matter what I tell you,
there are definitely days when it's


i hope you can handle that.

i feel like a species evolving.
this could take some time.

let's go fly a kite

take a walk through the neighborhood.
camp in the yard
run through the sprinklers
plant trees and pick flowers

and sell all our stuff.
in the name of joy!

we'll be happier--you'll see...

but don't take it from me... the experts agree :)
