For Sean

How much do I love thee?
Go ask the deep sea
How many rare gems
In its coral caves be,
Or ask the broad billows,
That ceaselessly roar
How many bright sands
So they kiss on the shore?

-Mary Ashley Townsend, 19th-century American essayist, poet and novelist

Since I'm in the Business...

I found this quote and thought it was cute since I work in the automotive business:

"Hate is sand in the machinery of life - love is oil."

-This quote was taken from Wings of Silver compiled by Jo Petty

Stay Still!

It took me forever to get her to stay still for a split second! It was fun playing with her, though. :)

Here, Kitty, Kitty...

Don't you love it when you adopt neighborhood cats? I named her Nala.

What Was I Thinking?

Can you believe I almost bought these boots? I love wearing boots, so I guess I went a little too far when I contemplated adding these orange things to my wardrobe. Luckily, I had some guidance from someone smart who said, "Are you serious?" when I asked him if I should buy them. :)

Curiosity Doesn't Kill the Cat

"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity."

-Albert Einstein
US (German-born) physicist (1879 - 1955)

Many people tell me I ask too many questions. But if I did not ask questions, I would not know anything. I would not find out information that could be important for me or beneficial information that I could pass on. I am always curious. Sometimes I may find information that I really do not want to know. Yet, I still believe that curiosity is a valuable trait that I possess.

Autumn Again!

I wrote this last November, but I am sharing it because today is the first official day of Autumn!

It's that time of year again - the time where you see the crimson and gold leaves falling to the ground as you walk to class, the crunch-crunch under your feet when you stop to talk to friends - the time when all you really want before that 9 o'clock class is a hot latte from Starbuck's and a pillow because the wind has been biting your face ever since you've left your house.

It's time for hot soup inside and hayrides outside, time for pumpkin pie and dreams of Thanksgiving break, time for eating turkey and Black Friday shopping, and time for final exams and Christmas planning...

It's finally here at last - It's Autumn again.

The Govenator & Nicholas Sparks

I just watched the movie Red Heat with Arnold Schwarzenegger and I truly believe the creators of this movie were Socialists. Throughout the whole movie there is an undertone of America vs. Russia. You'll have to watch the movie to see why.

Also, I just started Nicholas Sparks' latest novel, The Lucky One, and it is really interesting so far. It had a really funny beginning, so you will definitely have to check this book out. His novels always have great stories, and you never know if you are going to get a happy story or a tear-jerker. Oh, well, we will see about this one!
