I don’t know if you have ever seen this. They run it on pbs sometimes… But it is amazing! I love the book with all of my heart and soul, but the movie is just as good in its own way. I watch it every year around the holidays, and I think I bawl every time Matthew dies. Don’t get me wrong though, it is definitely a happy movie. Its just the saddest thing I can think of right now. Watch it! Or read it. It makes my top four books of all time.
Seriously. Rent this. I promise you it is worth your time. It made me feel for the characters in this crazy way that I cannot describe. I absolutely loved it, but I don’t think I can watch it again for atleast a few years. It made me feel that much.

TITLE: I've Got a Brand New Pair of Roller Skates (You've Got a Brand New Key)
Lyrics and Chords
I rode my bicycle past your window last night
I roller skated to your door at daylight
It almost seems like you're avoiding me
I'm OK alone but you've got something I need, well
I've got a brand new pair of roller skates
You've got a brand new key
I think that we should get together and
Try them on to see
I been lookin' around awhile
You got something for me
Oh, I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key
I ride my bike, I roller skate, don't drive no car
Don't go too fast, but I go pretty far
For somebody who don't drive, I been all around the world
Some people say I done all right for a girl
I asked your mother if you were at home
She said yes, but you weren't alone
Oh, sometimes I think that you're avoiding me
I'm OK alone but you got something I need, well
I have not kept up with my tumblr lately, and that makes me very sad. It intimidates me. For the past few days I feel like it is just too much work. Usually I am not a very stressed person, but these last few weeks have been building up and now I am on overload.
I promise, very soon I will get back on track. I liked having this to come to everyday, its almost like a journal, but I suck at journals….
Anyway, I will get better I promise. Starting up slowly :)
Well I started this a few days after making my tumblr, which apparently I didn’t do very long ago. I thought it was something that everybody on tumblr did kinda. I avoided doing it for awhile because I wasn’t sure if it was stupid or not, but soon I was swayed into doing it myself. It’s fun to write whatever you want and post whatever you want and think that people are reading it, but it’s even more fun to post things about yourself and think for a brief, shining moment somebody else is reading and caring about you that normally wouldn’t. Plus, writing about yourself makes you find out stuff about yourself, which is always completely fascinating. One more reason, I like being able to look at a finished package like this and see all of the days and laugh at my answers when I have forgotten them. It’s nice.
Sorry! One more post for today. I am working on the second sleeve of my sweater now, I know. YAY!!! I need motivation. I’m hoping that this post will motivate me, or somehow give me the gift of knitting faster. I don’t know how those ladies on the crafting shows do it.
“I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, “You’re gonna have to move, you’re blocking a fire exit.” As though if there was a fire, I wasn’t gonna run. If you’re flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.”—Mitch Hedberg
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”—Marianne Williamson
