Things I have learned from moving, part one:
1. I hold onto way too many materials (notes, memorabilia) for their nostalgic value. How do we place material value on memories, anway? Where do we draw the line? It seems that, in my case, it’s as if I need to have some sort of solid evidence to make sure I don’t forget anything. How do we give value to memories? And how do we infuse materials with those memories? What do they mean...

Check out Planned Parenthood of the Rochester/Syracuse Area’s blog. I just started contributing to it. Let me know if there are things you’d like to see.
Moving to the Oxford building. Moving as in the motion is exciting, moving as in the act of packing up your life and chucking it down the street is not.
Just so you know… I am fairly certain I left a lava lamp at my parents house that I could retrieve. I gain more value every second, you know.
amysbrain: forevertime: upandrise: If you need a break from this place, raise your hand? hand raised i hear baltimore is nice this time of year…. Looking pretty tempting. I was thinking that a Baltimore trip is much needed before summer’s over.

If you need a break from this place, raise your hand?
Things of interest:
On June 23rd Sam Hoyt’s (Buffalo Rep) Protections for Reproductive Health Care Act was passed by the NY assembly with a 133-0 vote. This rules. The act provides more protection for those providing and obtaining reproductive health care. “It’s time for NY to put an end to this escalating pattern of violence surrounding reproductive health care, and this is a step in that...
From California to Houston, on lightspeed.
Whatever happens to all those despairs that we bury down deep? If you don’t ever really face them, then what? Sometimes these nights could drive you crazy and I sort of understand why people don’t like being alone, or at home. Tonight the air is hanging; it is thick and heavy like the bathroom after a shower. Cigarette smoke and exhaust seem stuck in the air, like they’re...

Is having a crush on half your friends bad? I think it just means your friends rule.

jonwashere: Too much beer+ chain smoking+ bugles= She Is really gunna hate this mix tape. you always make good mixes! but stopit with the self destruction. or atleast come out tonight and be self destructive with other people.
things you can judge me on:
I started my morning with The View. Mostly because I thoroughly enjoy watching Whoopi drop some knowledge. Also, my “morning” started at 10:30. I am wearing a bathrobe with ice skating elephants. I will always answer calls at 5AM, but usually don’t answer ones at 5PM. Mostly I wait for a voicemail and then call back if i have to. Phones make me uneasy. They’re always...
I JUST NEED A DAMN NAP
Me: MOM OMG I THINK THERE'S A MOUSE.
Mom: heh.. hehh.. mumble and struggling with words... DON'T GIVE IT A COOKIE HAAAAAAA.
Who is sick of Obama not taking action/a hard stance? Now, I’m not a politics nut by any means and definitely don’t have a lot of knowledge on these matters… but I am so frustrated with his ambiguously supportive LGBTQ and pro-choice statements that are never followed through. I am waiting to see an explicit, clear articulation that is followed through with...
This is a self-serving to-do list.

I can’t help but see the good in everyone. I want to. I mean, I know it’s there. Because it has to be. Allison and I have been looking for new apartments. It’s been… tedious, difficult, dissappointing? I keep wondering - what will happen when we move away from the 490E ramp that our house backs up to? We’re separated by a wooden fence and some grass and then there it...
silly-girl: Just spilled coffee all over this cute boy that comes in that i have a crush on. Fuckkkkk. Take out the cute boy part and I totally second that. I spill shit all over myself and everyone else at Starbucks. I don’t know how I still have a job because I break or waste so much stuff.
Rest and windows
Today seems like it will occur in oddly sliced segments. Being well rested makes everything look better, though. And you intrigue me. I probably won’t tell you. Maybe I will. Sometimes in these situations I don’t feel any different than when I was 16. Maybe a little more confidence, definitely a lot more experience, but still just as unsure. Everyone seems in such a rush to nail...
Megan posted this on facbook. Had to repost becuase I was amused and it is SO true. And besides that, also a reminder of the lack of lesbians on tv.
If I could create a material item to represent my friends, Nina would be a cupcake and Allison would be a polar fleece blanket. If I could always have to items around, those are two very comforting ones.
