I have to work tomorrow, and I won’t be around to write anything until Sunday. Since tomorrow is the first of May, I really wanted to post something anyway.
I posted this last year too:) It’s from 2005, so I guess you could call it “tradition”.

“The things we fear the most, have already happened to us.”
Okay, cool. So that got me started on reading everything. I started feeling melancholy, because trips down memory lane are rarely happy ones for me, and then I found this:

The only question: How do I leave my life behind and pick up a new one?
Hi, I’m Cassie. I’m an artist, I work at Starbucks, I love people, I talk really fast when I’m nervous, I love passionately, I like to dance in the rain, I drive with my foot on the dash, I don’t smoke, I hate Taco Bell but love 7-layer burritos, my room is green, I sing to myself, my biggest hobby is writing, my biggest pet peeve is inconsiderate people, flowers die-so I have a vase full of sticks from my backyard, I am a decent judge of character unless we’re talking about past boyfriends, I love music, I watch the weather channel for fun, I love hockey, and love to learn everything that there is to learn.
My life is complicated yet simple, harsh yet soft, full of past regrets and “I’m sorry’s” yet holds immense amounts of hope for the future and “I love you’s.”
Reading that this afternoon made me feel good though. AND it reminds me of a line in a DMB song:
I am who I am oh who I am, well, who am I?
I’m great. And I’m going to BE great.
Five years later, every ounce of that is true.
