Song Obsessions: November (& October)

I don't mind if there's not much to say.
Sometimes the silence guides our minds.
~Sweater Weather by The Neighbourhood~

We live in cities you'll never see on screen,
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things.
~Team by Lorde~

No concealing feelings, or changing seasonally,
I'm gonna love myself the way I want you to love me.
~Love Me by Katy Perry~

Without you I'm just lost, incomplete.
You feel like home to me.
~Falling In by Lifehouse~

ALSO: One Direction's new album, Midnight Memories, leaked online and it is fantastic. It's the biggest jam for a pop-rock lover such as I. I highly recommend it. It comes out November 25th.

The Giving Trees

My backyard smells like sawdust. It's sad. Good bye, poplars.

"I am sorry," sighed the tree. "I wish that I could give you something... but I have nothing left. I am an old stump. I am sorry..."
"I don't need very much now," said the boy, "just a quiet place to sit and rest. I am very tired."
"Well," said the tree, straightening herself up as much as she could, "an old stump is good for sitting and resting. Come, Boy, sit down. Sit down and rest."
~The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein

Father Time Is a Fast Runner

I just keep being forced to grow up faster than I want to. Every day there's something new I have to figure out.
As you know, I've been working at a real job the past month. Some days it's good, some days my feet hurt and it's hard. Once I received my first paycheck my feet hurt a little less. But this week they're hurting a lot, because I have to work from 3:00-10:00 on my mom's birthday. I'm missing the whole party. So lame.
Also, last week I went to the doctor to get some medicine for another stye on my eye, and the conversation led to the doctor telling me I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. It's a permanent condition that I'll have to battle my entire life, which sucks. Then I went over to the hospital and had my blood drawn for the first time in my life. This week I'm supposed to find out my blood test results. It's kind of nerve-wracking. This all probably sounds really dumb to all of you (all 3 of my readers), but it's been a growing up experience for me.

To all of you little girls out there: Don't wish to grow up! It's 500% less fun than it looks. Enjoy where you are. Being a kid is rad.
