Music makes the work manageable

I really like this song for some reason. Everyone in the band just seems like they're having such a good time. Can I quit school and just make music?

this video/song is also really good:

crazy Swedish people...

Insomniac Haiku

Train whistle blowing
I lie sleepless in my bed
counting syllables

restless in this life
future choices churn within
focus on the now

"I speak Meteor"

My favorite part of getting up at 4am and driving to Carillon park to try to see some meteors: Aubrey attempting to 'call' the meteors to us.

Now you ask, did you actually see any meteors? Well, it was pretty cloudy so our chances were slim. Two out of the 5 of us saw one and I maybe saw one so...

Love Leafs from Leonardo

There's this really wonderful sycamore tree right outside the art building on campus.
Sycamores are my favorite tree, so I named him Leonardo.
Yesterday, while walking past him I picked up one of his many beautiful fall leaves on the sidewalk. This was what came of that inspiration:

It's all about BALANCE

Today I had a wonderful afternoon lunch with a really great friend. We talked a lot about how life is all about finding balance in the things that you do. And that what we really want to be when we grow up is happy. I think that if people recognize that all their decisions, even indecision, are choices that they make, and that they can always choose to choose something different, then maybe as a society we could choose to live in a different, happier, more balanced world. I think that the possibilities of choosing a different future are endless and it makes me truly happy inside to know that there are other people out there who aren't going to buy into the life of indecision and unhappiness.
