I had a dream my blog would be so different from this mess I'm blogging.
Carefree, if only for a moment
The French charity the Mimi Foundation told 20 cancer patients they would give them makeovers. All that was required of them was to keep their eyes closed to make the reveal more exciting. The patients expected that when they opened their eyes, they would look beautiful — but they got something else completely.
May or may not be crying like a baby. Made me laugh a lot and cry about the same.
Time to meet the children….
Tumblr’s Romeo and Juliet hate-fest needs to stop.
Do a lot of people misinterpret R&J? Probably.
But the core of R&J’s conflicts lies not in horny teenagers. Their love does not cause the deaths in the play.
Lack of communication between generations does. The actions of their parents do. Mindless cycles of violence that they’re forced to perpetuate do. The fact that they kill themselves is horrific. Not because they just need to get a grip, but because their families make it clear that they hate the person they love, for no other reason than ingrained perceptions of who they are and where they come from.
Sound like anything we still have happening today?
Root for Romeo and Juliet. Want them to love each because they’ve found passion in a world that is constructed mostly of hate. Realize that the show is not about how stupid they are, but how the society they live in sucks.
That play still has a shit ton of relevance if people would stop dismissing it.
Masquerade, hide your face so the world will never find you

Imagine Dragons were pretty popular this year. I guess you could say they were radio active.
"They called him the Winter Soldier.Supposed to be the KGB’s secret weapon. A guy who could pass for american and slip behind enemy lines or cross borders without raisin’ an eyebrow. Deadly with a knife or a rifle… even deadliner hand-to-hand. And since he was a ghost, half the time they weren’t even sure if it was an accident or a murder. Story went that they kept him on ice and only woke him up for the big gigs.”
do you ever think that oliver wood was created for the sole purpose of innuendo

i find posting things on Facebook really amusing. people liked my status that i haven’t talked to in….5 years??? some of them i am not even sure we ever talked but thank you for sharing in my enthusiasm?
So it’s official! Next fall I am going to be studying in Pau, France for a semester! I leave September 1 (maybe I’m going to Hogwarts) and I am so, so excited.
I’ve been dreaming about this since I was 12 years old. In my first French class my teacher told us that studying abroad was the most incredible experience she ever had, and I decided right there that I was going, no matter what. It’s been 7 years now, and I never for a moment let that dream go, and I can’t believe it’s finally happening! French has always been a passion of mine, and the fact that I get the opportunity to actually live and study there is something I’m still wrapping my head around.
Just a few more months now and I’ll be living out my dream!
