See, when you meet someone
for the first time,
you don’t really imagine that they would
turn out to be someone important to you.
You don’t really assume that
when you first learn someone’s name
that after awhile you would begin to really
get to know them inside and out,
or how you begin to pick up their habits,
and start talking like them,
or finishing the food off their plates
you don’t really see these things
happening, when you first meet someone.
Without really expecting it, this someone
who was only just a stranger to you before,
can all of a sudden mean so much more,
can become someone so special,
and someone you can’t see yourself
living without.

When did we become a country where the millionaires are jealous of the people on food stamps? A country that thinks teachers and fire fighters are soaking us dry? A country that thinks the richest who are paying the lowest taxes in 80 years are the ones being beaten up?

Copeland - Brightest


If you find yourself here on my side of town

I pray that you’d come to my door

and talk to me like you don’t know what we ever fought about

cause I don’t remember anymore

I just know that she warms my heart

and knows what all my imperfections are

and she said that I was the brightest little firefly in her jar

As someone who wants to study the human consciousness I found this very interesting.

Scott Routley was a “vegetable”. A car accident seriously injured both sides of his brain, and for 12 years, he was completely unresponsive.

Unable to speak or track people with his eyes, it seemed that Routley was unaware of his surroundings, and doctors assumed he was lost in limbo. They were wrong.

In 2012, Professor Adrian Owen decided to run tests on comatose patients like Scott Routley. Curious if some “vegetables” were actually conscious, Owen put Routley in an fMRI and told him to imagine walking through his home. Suddenly, the brain scan showed activity. Routley not only heard Owen, he was responding.

Next, the two worked out a code. Owen asked a series of “yes or no” questions, and if the answer was “yes,” Routley thought about walking around his house. If the answer was “no,” Routley thought about playing tennis.

These different actions showed activity different parts of the brain. Owen started off with easy questions like, “Is the sky blue?” However, they changed medical science when Owen asked, “Are you in pain?” and Routley answered, “No.” It was the first time a comatose patient with serious brain damage had let doctors know about his condition.

While Scott Routley is still trapped in his body, he finally has a way to reach out to the people around him. This finding has huge implications.

Feeling myself today

This weather is amazing

My date last night was literally the best I’ve ever been on.  He was so sweet, attentive, engaging, and funny. 

I try to have low expectations about first dates because of my past experiences, but this exceeded my expectations x1000.  

We met in the city for dinner and then we went to Starbucks.  I asked him if he wanted a ride home and he accepted.

We were both shy at times.  I was nervous so I tend to fumble on my words and not really speak as much.  I find it hard to formulate my sentences when I’m nervous.  Anyway, we talked in my car and there was a point where we were talking about something and he just kissed me.  It really caught me off guard but the timing was so appropriate.  It left me feeling breathless.  It was so incredible. I haven’t felt that way about a kiss since I first kissed my ex (which was when I was 13).  Yah.  It was such a hot kiss but it was also intimate and sensual.  He is quite affectionate which is something I love.  He also has the cutest mannerisms, laugh, and smile.  He is smart and thoughtful and so charming.  

I can’t get him off my mind.  

Tonight was absolutely amazing.  
It was just..incredible..I am speechless…
Also, check out my nails!
