The night is ripe,

Cigarette in hand, thoughts in mind.
If love is just a game, then who is meant to lose?
If Karma is true, then when do your 'rights' come back to you?
Good things take time, so appreciate them once you have them.
Life is to short to be lived in a state of 'what ifs'
Many things have been said and done,
But what have you said?
What have you done?

I feel like a Charlie

Sometimes I feel like a Charlie.
In my mind a Charlie is someone who gets screwed over all the time, walked on and used.
I mean why else would everyone always be saying "sorry Charlie"?

Fear

As I lay my head, hoping to sleep.
I think of what is to come.
I think of all the huge changes happening in the next month. Moving to a town where I don't know a single soul. Taking one huge step toward my potential career. Leaving all my friends, family, and everything I know.
To be honest I'm scared. I'm scared I wont have what it takes to follow my dreams. I'm scared of going into a world completely unknown to me. I'm scared I wont be missed, as selfish as that sounds.
The only thing to do is to conquer my fears, follow my dreams, and deal with whatever becomes of that.

Stress

Stress stress go away please allow my hair to stay..

Just another Tuesday night..

I find myself sitting here in my apartment thinking about what lays ahead of me, what will I make of myself. I'm sure many people ask themselves this question, as they should. But is it unhealthy to over think the future?

I think it is. I find myself more often than not thinking about what might become of something rather than enjoying what is currently going on.

Life is going to throw many obstacles, changes, and challenges your way and there is nothing any one can do to prevent that. if you become too accustomed to planning and attempting to predict the future you might not be able to cope with such a ripple in the stream of life that has become so predictable, so planned.

I am going to strive to not worry as much, although that is easier said than done. I am still going to set goals but they should be reasonably obtainable, not highly out of sight. Life should flow freely, not planned. Planning too much may prevent one from experiencing and enjoying life's little surprises.

Take care,

Shelley

Life and all of its glory..

So my life has changed a lot in the last few weeks, I'm newly single and finally loving my decision. i've completed my summer courses and now I have some time to breathe. What's next who knows? and who cares? I have adopted a new mentality to not worry so much because things have a funny way of working out on their own, if i waste all my time worrying and getting stressed about little things in life then I waste precious time that none of us can risk losing. So it's now of never from this point on I'm living life as i've always wanted with no regrets.. as cliche as that might sound.

Nothing much..

Life, it's flying by. Work, school, sleep, repeat. One day I will be done with all of this mayhem, one day I will travel the world, I am going to teach english abroad, one day I am going to join the peace corps. I'm going to do it all. Until then my life will continue to be chaotic.

and I wouldn't have it any other way.

TA TA for now.

Bagpipes

So today, was long. I woke up early and finished an essay went to class not too lively of a day.

But as I was walking home I heard a strange noise and as I walked closer to this man I noticed he was playing bagpipes. It was pretty interesting, I can say I have ever really seen someone play bagpipes in person before.

Now back to homework.

new post coming soon.

ATTN: Technology is taking over the classrooms.

So I have started classes again and to my amazement the three of my five classes all require course work to be done and turned in online. I am ok with this but the think that really irritates me is that each class uses a different website. One has Motif one Turnitin one D2L whatever that is. (desire to learn). AND it doesn't stop there I need an Iclicker. What the F*%k is an Iclicker. Incase you were wondering like I was an Iclicker is a device used to participate in class. What happen to the good old-fashioned hand-raising, or class discussion. Well thats it for now.

I have to go register on my class websites.


Until next time,

Shelley

CRUISER!!




I have always wanted a bike like this and thanks to craigslist I have found one for a reasonable price. So once it is in my possession I will give up my gas munching ways and fine a more economical, environmentally friendly way to live my life.

Gimme' Some INK!!!




I want this on my body, I want a tattoo, I want a lot of tattoos. First of them has to be a simple heart on my right foot to carry on a simple tradition. Ya see my best friend from the age of about three is going to carry on the tradition of the "foot heart tattoo" or whatever it is and I have agreed to embark on this with her. So I cant start my ink filled journey without her.. the journey should start soon... Hopefully.

The beginning.

So with no direction and the never ending search for a career path growing more and more difficult I have decided to vent.. to blog. A bit about myself I am a student, studying who knows what at this moment. Transcript says in store for my next semester is French, Sign Language, English 300 and 302 Magic, Witchcraft and Religion, and fitness. We'll see how that goes. I have a strong passion for languages, and culture. I would love to be a reporter, or a medic, a translator, a psychiatrist, I'd love to do it all. First I have to settle on a major, at the moment I am thinking a double major in Communications and International Relations. Or Linguistics. This is going to be harder than I thought..

Well I that's it for now I have to call it a day I have a job interview tomorrow. Wish me luck.
