Day 38 – A song to match your mood.

When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go

But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Day 35 – A photo of yourself two years ago.

This is actually 2 and half years ago, April 2009 I'm pretty sure.  Did a road trip with Claud and Ash down to San Diego.  Good times.  Sunburns.  Yogurtland.  Bonfires.  Beaches.

Day 37 – Your dream wedding.

Well, I would get married here...

The reception would obviously be here (it's a barn, hello)...

There would be some awesome flowers and colors like these...

Or maybe these...

There would be something fun on the tables,
I like it when olders and wisers give me advice...

And if I'm gonna have people sign a guest book, 
I don't want it to be a book at all...

This could maybe be my ring?...Yeah, I think so.

I don't think I want a long dress....

It just wouldn't be right if I wasn't wearing some rose earrings, 
but maybe a bright yellow, turquoise or green instead...

Thanks to pintrest for getting my obsessed with weddings when for so many years I couldn't have cared less.

Day 36 – A photo of an animal you’d love to keep as a pet.

Day 34 – Your favorite photograph of you and a friend.

This is Aileen and me.  Aileen is a cool girl.  It's unfortunately been years since I've seen her, but I will never forget what a great friend she was to me when I needed her most.  Without her, I never would have experienced "party weekend" and other great post-mission-still-in-college-memories.

Day 33 – Your idea of the perfect first date.

Oh, well, let me tell you.

Pick me up at my house with a cooler (filled with drinks and sandwiches) in hand.  Then let's walk a few blocks down to the lake.  Lets sit on the dock and dangle our feet in the water while we are having a picnic lunch.  Then let's walk around to the other side of the lake and rent a canoe and paddle out on the water and feed the ducks leftover pieces of our sandwiches until the sun sets.

I love where I live!

Inclement weather plans/wintertime:

Play board games in my living room in front of the fireplace and bake some banana bread or something else delicious.

Day 32 – A photo of something you ate today.

This is not the actual BBQ chicken I ate, but it pretty much looked like this.  It was a school lunch.  It wasn't that great.  But it wasn't that bad either.

I'm feeling somewhat ambivalent about life lately.  There's a song by Augustine that goes, "bad news doesn't hit me like it used to."  So maybe it's not ambivalence necessarily but lately some dissapointing things have been happening, but I'm not as affected and discouraged as I would have been in the past.  Yeah, these bummer things in life happen but I have to keep on moving through life, I might as well forget about the dissapointments rather than dwell on them.
