I got dropped out of my Instrumental methods class because it was too crowded and I was the only freshman. *sigh* A non-music major also got dropped and as we were leaving, the following conversation ensued: Guy: f%!* that class! Marilyn: Well it’s not the class’s fault… Guy: Well then f%!* Bailey! Marilyn: It’s not his fault either… Guy: Well then who’s...
I have found that now that I’m at a place in my life where I’m incandescently happy, it’s far more difficult to come up with things to blog about. It’s a little silly to discover that my deepest joys are far more personal that my deepest pains. From here on out I very well might stick strictly to my journal for these kinds of things. ;)
Goodnight, best day of my young adult life.
Hello, what is sure to be the longest night of my life.
candyheilman: I have a new found love for this French-American gentleman right here. I didn’t realize some of my favorite (not these ones necessarily), along with some famous photographs that I’ve seen in magazines before, were made by Elliott Erwitt. And I had no idea until two days ago.
Me: I'm so happy to be here, Anna.
Anna: I'm happy you're here. I mean...how often do you get to wake up to me?
Me: I know...I'm kind of living every YHS boy's dream.
When space and time fall off the chart, I’ll be rid of my body that disguises...– King Charles (via hellomoon)
I never thought I’d reach a point of my life of enjoying the ride so much that I didn’t mind not knowing where it would lead. I can’t help knowing that days like these are the ones I’m going to look back to and get a coy little smile about. I’m happy right here; I’m happy right now.
A friend got me a $10 Borders giftcard for my birthday, with which I proceeded to go to the Borders website, see that they were having a 90% off all used paperbacks, and purchase the following: 1) The Red Pony 2) Gone With the Wind 3) The Heart is a Lonely Hunter 4) The Crucible 5) The 42nd Parralel 6) Franny and Zooey 7) Life of Pi 8) The Scarlet Pimpernel 9) Little Women Through other...
Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me,...– 2 Corinthians 12:8-10 (via candyheilman)
What I want to do: 1) squeal like a girl 2) sing on rooftops 3) send out a mass text vs. What I choose to do: 1) smile coyly until my face hurts 2) wait 3) continue to give myself doses of realism hmmmm…. :)
1: I used to be "that cool girl." Now people just call me hipster.
Had you not loved me Would I have realized that My eyes were closed, dear...– tyler james
I think relationships were a lot easier pre-internet and texting. Or at the leaste more authentic. (Perhaps I just need to be easier on myself) ((and perhaps there’s nothing intrinsically evil about a change in communicative medium…so long as it’s balanced)) (((but how do you find balance!?)))
A THOUSAND TIMES YES →
you are a total sweetheart and so right. a Freaks and Geeks marathon still needs to happen. Joy is contacting you now >:)
Three things keep me sane in life: 1) Jesus 2) Singing 3) Running This stupid laryngitis has deprived me of two out of the three. As it stands, I am 66% mentally unstable. Help meh. :/
Well, it looks like tumblr is slowly but surely...
all of my dreams have come true →
I’ve been dealing with random congestion/mild coughing/sore throat but thought it was just a result of mild allergies and didn’t really take care of it. So, life went on as usual - yesterday (despite a slightly sore throat) I recorded that cover, and in the past couple days I’ve even bumped up my usual 3-mile run all the way up to 6 miles yesterday and 6.8 miles today! I’m...
Enchanting Ghost - Marilyn Newell (originally...
I love you, mom
T: Well, it sounds like things are going just swell - what's the problem?
M: I don't know...as cliche as it is, I'm afraid. I'm too young and at the same time far too old for another impending heartache.
T: Mimi, any kind of relationship is a a risk: a very delicate and complicated dance
M: I've never been good at dancing...
T: That's why you don't have to lead
simplicityduplicityy-deactivate asked: Hi! :) Just wanted to say happy birthday!
Again? Really? It appears so.
There’s got to be some huge lesson in this that I’m clearly not getting. Or perhaps I’m just predisposed to this sort of thing. And now for an ounce of truth: Psalm 139:13-16 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not...
surfing-the-point asked: OMG thanks for your help, you're wonderful! :D
2010 - and so it goes
So I tried to write a post summarizing 2010 in snippets but it got really long. Perhaps I’ll still post it one of these days…but then I had the brilliant idea: What about those old survey things everyone used to do!!?? So I searched back at last year’s tumblr posts and, sure enough, I found an old survey from the end of 2009. (Here) I’m usually not too gung-ho about these...
surfing-the-point asked: hi hello, so I saw your Idyllwild Arts Academy post. I really (like REALLY) want to go there for my senior year (so in a year or so). So are you in IAA or did you go already? if you did how is it so far? I've been talking to my mom about it for about a year and she's really supportive. I want to go but I'm scared... could you give me a brief description of how it is? did you have...
upon returning home from a run, covered in mud and...
Mom: MIMI. WHAT HAPPENED!!???
Marilyn: I got mauled by a bear.
Marilyn: fine. I tripped over a curb.
Did she love him? She wanted to but doubted the authenticity of her own...– Gregory Frost (via quote-book)
reina-marie: my handsome prince, cosmo. dumbcat! Reina, you crack me up so much.
