You know, sometimes I feel guilty of doing so. This might be because my parents are always reminiscing about the "good ol' days" when my brother and I "was like peas and carrots" and life was simple and dreadfully cute. So, what did I do? I whipped out the three wallpaper-covered shoe boxes full of old pictures out of the basement closet and looked at every single picture. The black-and-whites, the funny ones, the embarrassing ones, the useless ones, the happy ones.
I really don't know what I want to express by writing this post, but I don't really have to. Just enjoy the pictures with me.

On a more personal level, my family and I will never forget any of his songs and the feeling of joy we were left with after listening to them.
May you find more peace on the other side than you ever did here...

(I know I wore this shirt in my last post and I feel weird about it having another picture of it. Trust me, I don't wear this shirt 24/7.)

Since I feel like I am slacking, I shall provide you with a list of things currently happening in my life.
1. My mom is opening a bead/jewelry store.
2. I am preparing to go to Japan this summer.
3. My sweet little puppy died of cancer, so everything I do reminds me of him and makes me sad.
4. Debate is taking over my life.
5. Taking honors classes is Hell.
6. Learning to drape, which I LOVE, is my excuse for not doing my homework theses days.
7. Trying to stay on top of everything I have to do is as hard as licking my elbow (which apparently some people can do?--weird).
That's me in a nutshell right now. Joy.

I usually don't do posts that dig into my inner psyche like this, but maybe now is a good time to start. You know, with the new year and all.
Anyways, lately I have been feeling quite good. Mentally. Well, physically, too, but that's not really the point. I feel like I have grown up with a sturdy foundation (Yes, I know, that's always what those sex ed. speakers talk about-- sturdy foundations.) and can take on anything. It is a good feeling to be growing up and to soon be becoming part of the "older teenager" denomination-- 16, 17, 18, etc. Speaking of the future, futures are exciting. For me personally, I am excited for numerous things-- going to Japan this summer, my mom opening her bead/jewelry store, going to college, traveling to Africa for my graduation present.
Usually when I tell people things like this they say, "That's easy for you to say," or "I can't do stuff like that because I don't have any money," or "My life is too boring for that." The only thing I have to say honestly is... I don't care. If people would stopping putting so many limitations on themselves and start believing that they can accomplish anything if they put their mind to it, they could do amazing things all the time. I would also suggest reading The Secret, or watching the movie. I deem it the guidelines to living my life.
Because I lack a way to conclude this post, I will part by leaving a quote.
"Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you represents determinism; the way you play it is free will." --Jawaharal Nehru
