laying the wash •it's pretty unreal how close everything is to an end here, how we've already taken the first paper of the prelims etc. i really don't feel ready.
things have been a whirlwind of chalkdust, not too substantial while filling in all the spaces. people are leaving, people have left, i'm going to be leaving because i can't always be waiting.. i'm a distracted sort of guy, but maybe that should change.
i may not think i'm fit to handle picking stuff up and putting them down so frequently without some other physical consistency in my life, but here it is and there's nothing else to do. remember when we said, make a beautiful picture of whatever came our way?
it seems like getting ready to say bye is happening so much, so i'll be doing my part and forgetting. all the watercolor that just isn't lightfast enough has done it's time, move on, kid. nobody's hesitating.
these are supposed to be busy days, i get afraid that the work i'm doing just won't be enough, that we're not strong enough. it just doesn't seem right.. i'd pray for more faith.
this ain't so easy to do. still can't stop getting distracted by this, and you.
happy birthday, hm.

these are our personal wars; do we face them alone? •a few things have happened that make writing a bit worthwhile
KI thesis has been submitted, i printed a copy for myself bound and with the forms and everything, but i included my paper references in this binding. shall get it school-stamped and signed by jarrod lee when i get the chance, i owe him so much haha. i'm proud of my paper (: though i spotted 2 grammatical errors when i reread it this morning! hehheh what the heck.
friday was a crazy day in a 6S way, my class is guitar-crazy, haha. we lasted till 10pm? was nice listening and singing and playing and talking. and i wrote a song this morning, in 2 hours. totally distracting, heh.
also, the Discovery Channel I Love the Whole World song is awesome.
