Unlikely Inspiration?

When I got home from Carl's last night, I finished watching the Kennedy Center honors program. One of the year's honorees was Paul McCartney of the Beatles. Of course they performed a tribute to him, singing a medley of various Beatles songs. In one of them, The End, there's a line that reads: "The love you make is equal to the love you take." It suddenly hit me that this is so true. If you aren't willing to love the way you want to be loved, then you'll never get it in return. Just thought I'd share that little piece of inspiration. Hope every one has a great New Year on Friday!

My mom & me

Carl & I

As some of you know, this week has been hell for me. If it's not one thing, it's another. Monday I got into a small wreck at school. Tuesday I got some not so great news from a professor that could possibly be heartbreaking so I spent almost my whole day worrying about that. On top of that, I couldn't get a hold of the other person involved in my accident so I was really worried that I was gonna get screwed over. Today has been completely jam packed with work and school and tomorrow is going to be even worse. I'm not trying to throw a big pitty party for myself or anything... I just wanted to set up a little picture that goes along with what I'm about to say.

I have the GREATEST family & friends a girl could have. My mom has been my strength this week. She knows me better than anyone else and tells me to take a deep breath when I feel like I'm about to explode. My boyfriend is wonderful and believed in me when I was doubting myself. He reminded me that I'm a strong person and can get through this. My friends have been wonderful as well, offering listening ears if I need to talk and their help. Ashley B. & Will have been especially wonderful this week. I no longer refer to them (and Joel & Conrad for that matter) as friends I met through Carl. I now refer to them as MY friends... which they truly truly are.

So thank you to all of those people who have reminded me that this is merely a bump in the road, that I will get through it, and that the semester is almost over!! :)
