...That are on my mind at 4:25am. This is what happens when I'm supposed to be sleeping.
It's Christmas Eve, I need sleep so I can deal with last minute shoppers at work later today. But am I sleeping? No, instead I'm talking about one of many favorite subjects of mine. Me. Hah, I wish I were joking.
~ I have finally started to put my dream of traveling across the world into motion. I'm so excited even though I'm still a couple years away from actually going.
~ Yesterday, while I was finishing some last minute Christmas shopping I saw a girl not much older than I am, holding a sign that said "Family woman and student. Will work for food." I always just use my Debit card so all I had was $2 dollars on me. I gave it to her, smiled, and wished her a Merry Christmas. She bravely took the money and thanked me. As I turned away I could see her wipe a tear from her eye before she hardened her resolve again. All I could think was "Oh baby girl, whatever it is, I hope it gets better."
~ For the first time in my life, up until a week ago, I made a real prayer. I just want my mom to get better.
~ I have resigned myself to a lifetime of bachelorettehood because all of the gay girls in this city are either taken, psychotic, players, not interested in me or way too far out of my league. And to that I say, "Hello, Singledom. Pull up a chair and have a beer with me, looks like we're going to be here for a while."
~ I miss school.
~ I absolutely love Bruno Mars' latest album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans.
~ How am I not asleep yet? This is ridiculous.
~ It seems like the older I get, the more introverted I become. I don't think that's a good thing.
~ Oh crap, I forgot to pick up my comics yesterday. I wonder if the shop is going to be open today.
