Love Affair

Have I been listening to Tha Carter IV since five minutes after it became available to the general public?


So sue me. Little Tunechi 4life.

It's my blog and I can say what I want to

I've taken on a part time nannying job for a bit to fill my time, make some money, and remind myself how much I love my mother. The children I watch all have very dynamic personalities. Most dynamic, ironically, is the second child. She has an older brother and a younger sister, both very close to her age. She seeks attention, validation, control, and acceptance. We will just call her Elyse. Bless her sweet soul.

I swear when I am hanging out with her it's like watching a home video of myself. Seems ridiculous that a child can be so independent yet needy and likeable while manipulative. I'll stop talking before I divulge more of my complex genetic makeup.

Bless my mother and father who talked me into acting normal since age 6, and taught me that if you don't like something about yourself you have the power to change it. And bless my future husband who gets to love mini-me's.

Self Aware

In my mind there is this perfect me with perfect balance. An equilibrium of emotion, free time, exercise, quality time with loved ones, breathing, hard work, pondering, cooking, cleaning, laughing, relaxing, reading, and serving. She is older than I am, but has my current figure... and a six-pack.

These are some photos of what her world might look like.

Highway ride

I like to drive. Usually there's a destination. Somedays I wish there wasn't. I wish I had the capacity to just keep going; drive somewhere new, do something different, find a place to sleep and find a place to eat and then come home when it feels right. Mumford doesn't have enough music for where I need to go or the time I'd like to pass.

Baby, you're the only light I ever saw

He is so funny and thoughtful and charming. He makes me feel comfortable just because he is with me. Every part of me belongs to him. Spending all my time with him is natural and leaving him hurts me. I know more about his mind and heart than I know about anyone else, maybe even my own. Sometimes I forget that we are just two young people figuring out a young relationship and instead I feel like we are neck deep in forever.
