today isn't my day at all.

and while looking through my blog feed i read a quote from over here.
it's a wonderful quote.

"There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness and this is neither. This season is about becoming."
-Shauna Niequist


my best friend emailed this to me the other day and i laughed out loud.
i don't really remember taking these.
but there i stand, a medal around my neck,
a stole reading "ASB PRESIDENT" resting upon my shoulders,
and a diploma in hand.
i was many many things in high school.
and i often miss that girl up there because
she was only defined by the small, high-schoolish things that surrounded her.
she hadn't been off on her own, ever.
and the world was only at her finger tips.
she knew that she'd begin to become something, someone;
but no one told her how difficult it might be,
and how hard she'd have to try.
she was warned of failure and of mistakes,
but wasn't told how to handle them.
no one really has any solution to these anyways.
all she knew was that she had to keep going,
and that the world would go about its own course.
life would change, and decisions would need to be made.
tears and laughter would be essential.
and blessings and hardships would abound.
it's been one long year of change,
and the two of us are still becoming lots of things.
i think that so far we're doing just alright.
love you, jules.

    this is lovely and false.
