A. Iced Chai’s are amazing. I’m so glad I discovered them at Shades of Brown yesterday.
B. My brother gets back from the Bahamas in 4 days (as of tomorrow) (I haven’t seen him in over a month) and I get to jump on him and surprise tackle-hug him…hopefully. He doesn’t actually know I’m on campus, which makes it all the more exciting. Not to mention it’s going to be the most epic “Welcome-back-to-America-I-haven’t-seen-you-in-forever” jump/tackle/hug. But yeah, I’m SO excited for this. :)
C. I might get to see my friend Jessie this week and my former roomie Melissa for lunch. That would be wonderful.
D. ORUians who went on missions get back at random times all this week and next week. This is basically equivalent to happiness on campus. :)
E. I’m going to the Springs for Desperation and to see two of my favorite people in 21 days. <3
F. I just found out, I’m going to Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont after my fourth summer session. WHAT?! :D
G. I got an email back from The Oracle, our campus newspaper, about an interview once I get my recommendation from an ORU faculty member in. Cross your fingers, please! :)
Mkay, I’m done now…just had to get that out. :)

This town is dead, or dying,
it doesn’t matter, so long as I can
I am stuck in minor adulthood,
watching my high school get younger,
and my face older-hair growing down to my toes.
Hell would be warmer than here,
and I could smoke all the
cigarettes I wanted, but it’s okay-
I found the great green earth, and I
look down the deep throated flowers;
They were all smiling, tying knots
in roots. I dug in my fingertips,
and held to the spinning earth, watching
the sun disappear in dots of blue and purple.
I can push back the stones on all the
graves and find enough bones to build a
home, where I will die.
and rest in the arms of the whole world.
Then maybe life can come back to
the mountains, with all the bonemeal.
