"when you discard arrogance, complexity, and a few other things that get in the way, sooner or later you will discover that simple, childlike, and mysterious secret known to those of the Uncarved Block: Life is Fun."

"from the state of the Uncarved Block comes the ability to enjoy the simple and the quiet, the natural and the plain. Along with that comes the ability to do things spontaneously and have them work, odd as that may appear to others at times."

it's funny how "The Tao of Pooh" speaks so much towards what i was working towards. i just didn't realize it until i started reading it.

summer 2012 will probably go down as one of the best summers i've ever had.
and i think it's because without realizing it, i was trying to get back to my uncarved block.
i was trying to open myself up to any experience i could have, no matter how simple or plain or basic it seemed.
this summer has ended up taking me on some of the most incredible journeys.
journeys i thought i would never have.
there were times this summer when i stopped. and i was just in awe.
that this was my life. that i was actually somewhere experiencing what i was experiencing.
i was humbled by the simplest things.
things that i never would have thought about before.
life this summer has just been fun. even with the ups and downs. i've let myself completely open up to life. and it has been fun. fun as hell.

this summer has allowed me to reconnect with my true self.
to make new friends. to rekindle old friendships. to let people see who i can really be.


i've had an impact on other's lives.
and i could feel that impact as it was happening. which is the coolest feeling in the world.

the amazing thing is, is that this summer is only like, half over.
there's still so much more to do.
so much more to experience.
and after that, there's the rest of 2012. and the rest of my life.
so let's just keep getting it.

i'll copy tiff.

things i miss:



when alfie was teeny tiny.




all of us, together. i would do anything to have days like this more often.




no matter what, i'll always consider him one of my best friends.




summers at peg's. nothing will ever beat watching nick cartoons and drinking out of a hose.




we were so silly, but we had so much fun.




knowing nothing, wondering about everything, no worries, catching lightning bugs, innocence, having a lifetime waiting for you, no thinking, just doing.




christmas everyday would be A-OKAY with me.




BFF Fridays, that leather jacket, shows every weekend, falling in love, and this guy :-X




at the time, that club wasn't friends, it was family. i wish we could have stayed that way.



PEARL'S. i would eat meat to have a pearl burger right now. ugh, and those cheese fries!




please play some more riverside revival shows, nothing makes me prouder and happier than watching you on stage.




i hope that it's because we're both too busy and not because we're drifting apart, because i really miss this guy.



probably more later.
