|Bwhahaha! He looks FOR REAL like him.|
Can I admit something to you all, even if you may not find yourself in 'admiration' of me, at all? I actually have no clue where I was or what I was doing on the eleventh of September that fateful year, when I heard news of the plane crash. In fact, everytime I hear that question, I make up a lie, and say I do, just because people make such a big deal of it.
I lived in Illinois at the time, in a small rural town with maybe one thousand inhabitants [or less]. I was in second grade at that time, & was not afraid of anything. Not even the bullies that teased me scared me. I never wept [except the one time I thought I'd been hit in the nose, and had an orange nosebleed], and nothing was impossible for me. I was naive- everything revolved around me and my life, and nothing else.
So, it's [not actually] safe to say that I cannot recall it. At all. Yet, as I've grown older [and become oh-so-less fragile and naive], I've grown to realize the importance of today. We take this day to reflect, remember, and realize the lives that were lost and affected by that tragic day. To say the least, even though I can't remember the day, I still take the time to reflect on it all. Please, even if you are Chinese, English, Irish, Dutch, Turkish, ANYTHING- take today to remember the lives that were lost in a disaster of your country today.
In happier news, I washed a clown's car today. It was a MiniCooper. I expected four to pop out, but instead two appeared. Irony? I think so.
I also found out that another girl picked out the same dress as me for homecoming. :[ When I first saw, all I could think of was NONONONONONOO!! Yes, I'm an overreactive teenager. No, I don't have a date, so really whether I go or not doesn't matter. I'm not sure if I can even go or not, having a competition two-point-five hours away that same day. But still, a [wallflower] girl can dream. :] So, along with normal comments, do you think that the other girl would be mad if I wore the same dress as her [even though she "announced" she was getting it first, but I'd already decided I wanted that one before that]?
Oh, and listen to this song: 32 Ways to Make You Smile by A Backseat Goodbye. It makes me want to dance with a guy like we were an old couple, relishing in the love-enriched moment.
