“To return to love, to get the love we always wanted but never had, to have the love we want but are not prepared to give, we seek romantic relationships. We believe these relationships, more than any other, will rescue and redeem us. True love does have the power to redeem but only if we are ready for redemption. Love saves us only if we want to be saved.”—bell hooks, All About Love: New Visions

In Hurricane Irene's wake, buyer's remorse

In Hurricane Irene’s wake, buyer’s remorse
NEW YORK — People along the East Coast gave thanks when the storm passed by Sunday and inflicted relatively little harm. But by Monday morning, they were complaining.
Some were annoyed that they’d braved long lines to buy batteries and canned goods that they didn’t end up needing. Others were in stores demanding refunds on the extra flashlights, tarps and even junk food they’d snapped up. Many were planning to host post-hurricane parties to get rid of all the extra food they bought, or were preparing to sell their unwanted stuff on eBay.
Just remember folks, every disaster does not come with several days’ notice.

August 8th, 2011…such a lovely day.
Went to FCC with Dennis to take care of some school business. I can’t believe we start in less than a week now… This summer went by faster than any summer ever for me. But I’m pretty ready to start college! I feel that I have my mind in the right place to actually be successful. Everyone has such negative things to say about City…but to be honest, I don’t really care. I feel it’s the right choice for me at this point.
So after we handled all that, he came back to my house & we hung out for the rest of the day. I’ve missed him! We haven’t seen each other as much these past few weeks compared to the rest of our summer, so it was really nice to spend all day with him :’) I seriously needed it. There’s no one I’d rather be spending my time with. I love you, Baby<3
Come Monday, August 15th…I no longer have a life outside of work & school haha. That is if I I get as many hours at work as I hope for. I’ll pretty much be living on campus & at the mall. I’ve questioned myself quite a few times about if I can handle that…but I need to. & Then of course all of my free time will be reserved for Dennis :p.
Well, the last week of summer & I will be spending a lot of it working. I won’t be complaining once I start seeing the results though ;) First thing’s first, a little “get away” for my lover boy & I. It will be perfect. I can’t wait :D<3
All right…time for more Netflix then some shut eye. Goodnight, all!
