If you ever want something badly, let it go. If it comes back to you, then it’s yours forever. If it doesn’t, then it was never yours to begin with. --Blake Lively

Today: Breakfast, school, lunch, government class and falling asleep, fastest walk home because Jamal made me walk super duper fast. then check networking sites, read, Starbucks, photoshoot with Katrina (thumping sound in the bushes, trololol-ing), then back to katrina's house.
Right now I'm burning a very fragrant soy candle, one of what I'd imagine my future house would smell like. A mix of pumpkin & spice with a dash of cinnamon gingerbread. Lykke Li is playing in the background, and I'm going downstairs for teatime and to watch Harry Potter and the half blooded prince. Hmmm, optimism=win.
Oh, and I feel bad for ditching a study sesh today.

Apple cider, fake champagne glasses, confetti poppers, and noise makers. I wish I was at Times Square in Manhattan though, that would've been amazing. In the future perhaps.
No new year kisses for me. But I spent an hour having a skype party and learning how to play the guitar. I'm very impatient and impulsive- getting frustrating and changing songs every 'mid-song'. To be honest, it had a lot to do with the lack of ability to memorize chord positions, my small and limit hand span, and long nails that kept sliding away. I learned part of: White Horse, Skinny Love, & Savior.
Instead of making a long list of New Year's Resolution this year, I"ll just keep things short so it's not as disappointing. No expectations, no disappointment. But I have to have a standard right?
-go to sleep before 12
-cut on white flour/sugar | increase water intake
-ask myself if i can 'live without it' before i buy anything.
-education (academics/arts) is forte over everything else.
-stop dwelling on things i'll never be able to change. move on and learn from the past
-start reading more print/electronic publications

Happy new year; hopefully everything goes better than it did last year. make sure to make memories you are proud to keep.
i. (ps, sorry i didn't want to do a summary of 2010. it'd make me sound whiny and do no good but bring me heartaches and painful memories)

cross your fingers for me. columbia university application is due today ><
