i think i'm going to start doing a song of the day. because i'll never be able to share all of them.
i don't always know why. like today, it is nightswimming by r.e.m.
while you listen... i had the following conversation with a man in my linguistics class:
him: So...what do you think of this class?
me: i LOVE it. [insert long-winded explanation of how fascinated i am by grammar, syntax, and the various theories regarding the origin of language]. what about you?
him: (long pause)...I guess i feel very differently. (long pause)
me: i take it you don't like the class? why not?
him: well, we're focusing on the theories rather than the outcome.
me: but we already know the outcome. why would we focus on that?
him: why theorize about it?
me: because there's so much we don't know! there's so much we've yet to discover.
him: we know enough.
i am offended.
and because damon just texted me about raccoons, this:
did you know my dad once had a pet raccoon named trouble? did you know my dad is the most awesome human?
by the by. i apologize for ever feeling sad about my life. about anything, really. because i honestly honestly have a remarkable life. i am blessed with the BEST friends and family...thank you. punch me in the mouth if i complain. i have no reason.
thank you for being you. thank you for being alive. thank you for sharing your life with me. thank you for wearing a seatbelt.
