Sigh [22 Feb 2004|10:18pm]
Heaven bent to take my hand
And lead me through the fire
Be the long awaited answer
To a long and painful fight

Truth be told I've tried my best
But somewhere along the way
I got caught up in all there was to offer
And the cost was so much more than I could bear

Though I've tried, I've fallen...
I have sunk so low
I have messed up
Better I should know
So don't come round here
And tell me I told you so...

We all begin with good intent
Love was raw and young
We believed that we could change ourselves
THe past could be undone
But we carry on our backs the burden
Time always reveals
The lonely light of morning
The wound that would not heal
It's the bitter taste of losing everything
That I have held so dear.

I've fallen...
I have sunk so low
I have messed up
Better I should know
So don't come round here
And tell me I told you so...

Heaven bent to take my hand
Nowhere left to turn
I'm lost to those I thought were friends
To everyone I know
Oh they turned their heads embarrassed
Pretend that they don't see
But it's one missed step
You'll slip before you know it
And there doesn't seem a way to be redeemed

Though I've tried, I've fallen...
I have sunk so low
I have messed up
Better I should know
So don't come round here
And tell me I told you so...

Wow, I think I am losing it... hahaha. I have been in the weirdest/dorkiest mood tonight. That's what happens when you spend 5+ hours a day studying.

Midterms time... trust me, you don't wanna be around me... lol

For some reason I got the biggest craving for mozzarella cheese today. I'm so glad I bought it yesterday.

You all update enough for me :-D

BUT, just wanted to say I am doing well and school/work are keeping me busy.

I have to shoot pictures of movement this weekend.

Don't really have anything planned for Valentines Day... It definitely used to be a bigger deal to me. I was near party city today and it reminded me of high school. There were hundreds of those red heart balloons. I remember the hallways would always be filled with balloons and flower petals. And there would always be that one person who stood out because they had the most stuff. And there would be deliveries in classrooms all day long from various clubs who sold things...and everytime someone walked in.. I'd wonder who it was for. AND I remember thinking to myself that half the people who had stuff bought it for themselves. How was like a competition in high school or something.

I remember our (mine and Paul's) first valentines day... Paul got me sooo much. I felt like I was floating through the hallways with the balloons, three teddy bears (a whole family), roses, and a box of my favorite cookies.

Anyway... Paul's birthday was on Tuesday..I forgot to post that.

I'm about ready for bed. I hope all is well with you guys :)

Two different blood tests, one for each arm! And one the nurse said she had never heard of before...haha. Lovely.

I feel like my theme song is Pearl Jam's "Alive" lately.

I'm still alive :)

Dr appt at 4 tomorrow. I am so sick of going to doctors. Now it turns out this whole thyroid thing could be a virus of some sort? Meaning it will go away, but only an endocrinoligist could tell me that. So I am gonna get a referral tomorrow.

I am going tomorrow to get my swollen lymph node checked out... I would think it would've gone away by now.. buttt it hasn't.

It's like I've gotten so used to living alone...I get irritated when people are here now. My mom has just been bickering all weekend. And I'm upset with myself for being annoyed with her, and I just keep regretting the fact that I don't have this close bond with my mom...where as her and my bro are like two pees in a pod or something.

I think it's safe to say that I have a road rage problem. I know you are thinking 'sweet, polite Nicole! Never!' I have fooled you all!! Muhahaha.

Anyway...I went out and bought today exactly what Paul was going to get me for valentines day. Go me...way to ruin things!!

PS I got the cutest stamps! I want to send everyone mail just so they can see them.

Or I could scan them... haha... yesss that could be much quicker.

What a morning so far!

In my dance class we talked about different cultures and 'sexual' dances. It was soo intriguing. Especially how sexy the dances are in some Islamic cultures like Morocco(they aren't allowed to dance in front of men though, only with other women).

Then in my photography class, we saw these slides of this famous photographer, they were so heartbreaking. They were of his wife and her stages of breast cancer. I was fighting back the tears. Such vivid images.

I am actually feeling much better than I have the past week. I still have been waking up in the middle of the night, wide awake for no particular must be something having to do with the medication.

I haven't seen Paul in three days.. on top of him also being sick, he has pink eye...and I don't need that. I miss him though! :-(

BUT we are going to a ballet this Friday (if he is better), I have to go for my dance class.. he isn't all that excited about it, but I'm looking forward to getting all dressed up and going. It's supposed to be a romantic ballet, it's called Giselle.

Now that I am finished reading East of Eden (which I highly recommend by the way) I am gonna start reading the book Danna suggested: A Purpose Driven Life. I am really looking forward to reading it, as well as the other books I have recently bought and are just sitting useless on my shelf!

Hope everyone is having a good Wednesday :-)
