What music album would be used for a movie about your life?
My life is not that interesting. Their is no love, no love lost, and all the music I wish could be used for my life doesn’t fit. But since Rachel is such a part of my life, I know the Legally Blonde Musical soundtrack is us when we are together. So I choose that one, even if it is for nostalgic purposes :)
Name a totally useless possession and how you came to possess it.
In my dorm, I have at least two day planners and they are completely useless to me. I have a good memory when it comes to school work…about nothing else, though… so I find it extremely repetitive and annoying to use them. I think I bought both and regret both purchases because they are completely useless to me!
Facebook: like everyone else, it’s an addiction. It keeps me connected to all my friends, acquaintances, people I hate, and people I hope to one day know…
Tumblr: originally this was made to be a online-diary for a class, but it turned into a way to keep in contact with my friends back home and learn about everything, even minor details, going on where they are.
StumbleUpon: my guilty pleasure! A friend showed me this and I instantly became addicted. It brings me to so many places that I would never even think to look.
SMC Mail: Got to keep updated on the things going on campus and keep contact with my professors
YouTube: love to watch other acapella groups and see people sing for the purpose of loving to sing!
Name something you lost or gave away that can never be replaced…
This is going to sound really cheesy, but I gave away my first kiss on a whim and I’ll never really get to have that first experience back.
I kissed my gay friend’s boyfriend…then my gay friend…and then my other gay friend. All were male and scrumptious to look at, but it wasn’t what I had anticipated for my first kiss. I don’t regret it and it was definitely a bonding experience, but I’m still kind of waiting for my “real” first kiss…
“A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave. A soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, and make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life.”—Elizabeth Gilbert
I read a new piece of literature, I am transported. Not only did I spend last night from 10 pm-1 am in the library bawling my eyes out over The Kite Runner, but I spent today reading The House on Mango Street (which was alright) and some short stories.
I read a new piece of literature, I always try to relate it to my life. Characters become people in my life and I reevaluate my life with every new glance I get at it.
I read a new piece of literature, I forget my pain. There is something about reading that takes away my pain, because no matter how much I am suffering because of my disorder… I don’t know… I just am able to be like someone else for a small moment in time. I’m no longer Rebecca, a girl separated by so many factors from her peers, but I am Esther or Ezperanza or Anne or Jane or Elizabeth (allusions, anyone?), even if they are suffering something similar, worse, or even better. I am no longer stuck in my world of pain but something..else.
I know this sounds all foreign and strange, but I seem to have had an epiphany tonight…maybe it’s the caffeine or chocolate or sugar or late hour of night or stress… I learned something about myself today and I’m content with life right now. It feels blissful ^.^
