You Were The Little Rock In My Shoe

Yes, you heard me. You heard me right. I just figured it out. Not now, but this morning, coming back from church. It’s a something that seems to be quite relieving, this going to church thing. I was walking quietly, with a million of thoughts in my head... mostly of you, unfortunately for me... and the thing is... well, I stopped. In the middle of the sidewalk, I stopped. I took off my left shoe, and I got that little rock that was bothering me. It seems that I realized I had it there only this morning, how odd! It must have been bothering me for months, because I had a little mark on my foot. So small I barely noticed at home, when I checked the damage.
I kept on thinking that this was what you were too.
You were the little rock in my shoe.
My left shoe, to be more specific.
(It didn’t seem to have anything to do with the heart, but that’s the way I saw it.)
So in my desperate attempt to get rid of all the memories that seem to haunt me (these days more than ever, I don’t seem to get it why… hmm... maybe it's because I bought a book last week, and its title made me think of you), I came to this answer: you were the little rock that bothered me for months. And I used to like you there, didn't even notice you… until today! But this must be a big step forward, right? I mean... I must be figuring out some things about myself and maybe even about you.
So it’s a step forward, that’s how I choose to see it.
And another medicine, a painful one, but still a medicine for my recovery, is you ignoring me. I know, I know… I’m too much of a coward to just spill it out, so I really hope you'll understand it yourself. And come to respect my decision. Because God knows I don’t want any more male best friends. I’m sick and tired of being a guy’s best friend, especially if I’m in love with the idiot, and he doesn’t even notice it.
Goodbye, dear little rock in the left shoe!
I hope I won’t miss you!

Not yours,
(at least not anymore)

A Change Is Gonna Come

We don't like it.
We fear it, but we can't stop it from coming.
We either adapt to change or we get left behind.
It hurts to grow, anybody who tells you it doesn't is lying, but here's the truth: sometimes, the more things change, the more they stay the same.
And sometimes, oh, sometimes change is good.

(GA, s04, ep1)

Try Walking In My Shoes

'Now I'm not looking for absolution,
Or forgiveness for the things I do.
But before you come to any conclusions,

Vocabulary Lesson (2)

'I love the French language.
I have sampled every language, French is my favourite - fantastic language, especially to curse with.
Nom de Dieu de putain de bordel de merde de saloperies de connards d'enculé de ta mère.
It's like wiping your arse with silk, I love it.'

(The Matrix Reloaded)

*inspired to remember this, after my first French exam this semester!

Vocabulary Lesson (1)

Thanks to my newest friend, I stumbled across something particularly interesting!
Don't you just love the English language?
Enjoy! :)

(my personal favorite usage of the word "fuck" is in the phrase "Fuck the fucking fuckers!" but then again, that's just my choice)

Biding My Time

'Wasting my time,
Resting my mind
And I'll never pine
For the sad days and the bad days
When we was workin' from nine to five.

And if you don't mind
I'll spend my time
Here by the fire side
In the warm light and the love in his eyes.'

(perfect song for a rainy Saturday morning!)

Time Has Come Today

'Time takes pleasure in kicking our asses. For even the strongest of us it seems to play tricks. Slowing down... hovering... until it freezes. Leaving us stuck in a moment, unable to move in one direction or the other.
Time flies.
Time waits for no man.
Time heals all wounds.
All any of us wants is more time.
Time to stand up.
Time to grow up.
Time to let go.

(GA, s03, ep01)

Sometimes A Fantasy

'Every now and then some other kind of fantasy slips in. Most of our fantasies dissolve when we wake, banished to the back of our mind, but sometimes we're sure if we try hard enough... we can live the dream.

The fantasy is simple.
Pleasure is good, and twice as much pleasure is better.
Pain is bad, and no pain is better.
But the reality is different. The reality is that pain is there to tell us something. And there's only so much pleasure we can take without getting a stomach ache.
And maybe that's okay.
Maybe some fantasies are only supposed to live IN OUR DREAMS.'

(GA, s03, ep03)

Today's Revelation

‘The real truth is that I probably don’t want to be too happy. Or content. Because… then what? I actually like the quest… the search. That’s the fun. The more lost you are, the more you have to look forward to. What do you know? I'm having a great time and I DON'T EVEN KNOW IT!’

(AM, s01, ep01)

Wait and Hope

'There is neither HAPPINESS nor MISERY in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life. Live, then and be happy, beloved children of my heart, and never forget that until the day when God shall deign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is summed up in these two words – wait and hope.'

(Alexandre Dumas, The Count Of Monte Cristo)

Something Beautiful

'I can't manufacture a miracle
The silence was pitiful that day.
A love is getting too cynical
Passion's just physical these days...
I analyze everyone I meet
But get no sign, love ain't kind
Every night I admit defeat
And cry myself blind.

If I can't wake up in the morning
Cause my bed lies vacant at night
If I'm lost, hurt, tired or lonely
Can't control it, try as I might!
May I find that love that won't leave me
May I find it by the end of the day
I won't be lost, hurt, tired and lonely
Something beautiful will come my way!'
