Soul friends

“Here’s the truth: friendships between women are often the deepest and most profound love stories, but they are often discussed as if they are ancillary, “bonus” relationships to the truly important ones. Women’s friendships outlast jobs, parents, husbands, boyfriends, lovers, and sometimes children…it’s possible to transcend the limits of your skin in a friendship…This kind of friendship is not a frivolous connection, a supplementary relationship to the ones we’re taught and told are primary – spouses, children, parents. It is love…Support, salvation, transformation, life: this is what women give to one another when they are true friends, soul friends.”

- Emily Rapp

Is this thing on?

Wow.

It's been a long, long time since I've used LJ, el jay ---> do people still call it that? I made the jump to Tumblr which wasn't supposed to stop me from using livejournal but obviously I failed. I don't know why. Tumblr got easy I think. Well once I finally figured out how to use it. I nearly quit it until my sister showed me the Tumblr way.

If I could
I would
Slow
Everything down
And hold onto
This moment
Before my world wakes
And daylight takes this moment
Away

And when you say you miss me
I'm beginning to think you mean
You miss me from a different life
Like a new me has come to light
And I don't know what to tell you
Because I've been missing you for quite some time
If I've changed it's because you led me there
And the fact of the matter is
I like the way I look and feel in this light

“And then I felt sad because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can’t ever be fixed, and this is something nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older as you see the people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it’s already happened.”
— Douglas Coupland

-It’s strange not sharing the little parts of my day with you. Sad, if I really take the time and think on it; so I don’t anymore. But that’s how it goes I guess? Life gets in the way and things that built this friendship slip through the cracks and yes, I know that if I needed you, you would be there and vice-versa and that these are important, legitimate life things that you’re achieving and I’m happy for it all because you deserve it (we both know I’m your biggest fan) but that doesn’t mean this new skin our friendship is fitting in isn’t strange. Guess I’m just bitching about change because we both know I’m slow to adapt to change. I’ll get use to it, find my footing in us again. Just want to mourn how we were for a moment before we depart into a new us.

-Saw the movie Midnight in Paris. I really enjoyed it. It was not what I expected at all but I guess that’s the Woody Allen touch to it? I’m not sure. I know people “in the know” say he’s hit or miss and always a little eccentric. Eh. I consider myself to be an above average movie person, meaning that I’ll watch those movies that step out of the box some but I’m nowhere near a movie buff and know things like styles directors use, great camera usage, the quirks of directors, who wrote the script etc. At any rate, I enjoyed the movie and its take on the old adage “the grass is greener on the other side”. I’d recommend it.

-Finished reading Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. I enjoyed it as I’ve come to enjoy all her books I’ve read so far. The main character in this book, Fanny Price, was different than the other main characters in her other books. Fanny was quieter, more unsure of herself, an observer, less playful and witty but certainly not dumb and had a calm nature about her. I could go on and on and write an essay of sorts because yes, I’m a nerd but I’ll leave it at that. I like to analyze what I’ve read and discuss it and all that jazz so I’ll be looking at what the critics and scholars say about this book of hers; see if my conclusions and analysis etc match up with theirs or if I have completely different take on the book. I have one more book to read by her Northhanger Abbey. It seems to be the one that is least known to people. I’m not sure if that’s accurate or not but I’ve never heard of until I started reading her books (which I was at least familiar with their titles). After I finish that book, I plan on reading Hemingway and checking out for myself why he’s considered one of the great American writers. Actually, my next reading project if you will, will probably be reading books from those that are considered great American writers. I’ve read F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatbsy so I have that one down. I just have to fit in this reading in between my school stuff and life. So yeah. I like to read.

-Of course, contrary to what I just wrote above, I’ve decided to make this week or weekend filled with activity that I do outside. Such as going to the museums or going to the park, play tennis, doing a bike tour etc. Just doing something outside my room. I need to do it. I want to do it. Let’s hope I’m not just all talk.

-In addition to being a movie goer and a bookworm, I’m also a tennis fanatic so Wimbledon is a big deal for me. My hope on the women’s side is Maria Sharapova. All my other picks have been eliminated. It’s okay though because I am a Sharapova fan. On the men’s side, my 3 favorites are still in and they happen to be the world’s #1, #3 and #4 in the world, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Andy Murray respectively. We’ll see how this works out.

-I wish I had new music to listen to. I love it when I stumble across an artist or band that I love for life. No new stuff has made its way to my ears. *sigh*

That’s enough babble for tonight. Off to bed

How strange it is

To share little moments

With someone who is not you

Stranger still

How okay that feels

Instead, we trust people to be who we want them to be - and when they’re not, we cry.”
