Good Songs!!

Just Want You to Know-Backstreet Boys
I just want you to know
that I've been fighting to let you go
Some days I make it through
and then there's nights that never end
I wish that I could believe
that there's a day you'll come back to me
But still I have to say
I would do it all again
Just want you to know

Everytime-Simple Plan
Everytime I see your face
Everytime you look my way
It's like it all falls into place
And everything feels right
Ever since you walked away
You left my life in disarray
All I want is one more day
All I need is one more day with you

Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad-Def Leppard
Have you ever needed someone so bad, yeah
Have you ever wanted someone you just couldn't have
Did you ever try so hard
that your world just fell apart
Have you ever needed someone so bad

Petunia's Advice

How to Get Over a Guy
(by Petunia McGillicuddy)

with added commentary by me

1. Realize that anything good in him, is somewhere inside you, too, because you were able to notice it in him and value it.
I'm not so sure about the goodness Plymouth people who know the whole T in TULIP know what I mean. However, it does seem reasonable that we can see the good traits in the guy, which is what we'd like to see in ourselves, and maybe he brings that out in us.

2. Sit at home and cry as much as you want until you are ready to stop crying. watch really depressing movies about people who kill themselves over love (so you vicariously experience self-indulgence) and then watch movies where bad things happen to good people for no reason (so that you feel compelled to get off your tushy and counterbalance the bad that happens in the world).
I LOVE this part!! I tend more to write looooong notes to friends that go in circles and really say nothing, but are very bemoaning and tragical. Also, watching movies where they live happily ever after is more my style. A Cinderella Story and Ever After are two prime examples.

3. Let your friends know you are in kind of a bad way, so that they can intervene and call you to go out, when you pass the stage of feeling sorry for yourself as purging, and into feeling sorry for yourself as turning into moldy crud indistinguishable from the oldest thing in the farthest-back tupperware container in your fridge.
lol, thats so true. My closest friends are able to tell when I was thinking of the guy. More often then not they try to cheer me up. Thats one major reason I love 'em all so much!!

4. Realize that the parts of him you fell in love with are in many places (including you), and that you have the power to recreate what you loved about him, to notice it in others, to bring it out in yourself, or simply to remember and appreciate it. When you are ready, you'll go out and love all the world with the tiny part of him that is really just a mirror of what already existed within you.
As deep and philosophical as that is, if you take the time to think about it, it makes perfect sense. When you fall for a guy, if you really fall for him, not just think he's SO HOT or whatever, there are specific things that made you do so. Maybe it's his sense of humor, the way he treats people, his leadership abilities, how sweet he is to his mom, whatever it may be, you had a reason. It's important to look for that in whoever else is in your little world. And if the reasons you fell for him were shallow or'll find that out, too. Little things that you remember about him always catch you off guard, but in time it fades. Hopefully this'll all work for me eventually, too.

A Mess?

If ifs and buts were candy and nuts it'd be Christmas every day. If wishes were horses, beggers would ride. Combine the two and you get what?

December 2, just a few days ago, was one year ago that Doug was diagnosed with leukemia. Its amazing to me how much life can change in just one short year. As always, keep him and his family in your prayers!!

Today was the first day of Science Olympiad. I've been somewhat apprehensive of it this year as I know its going to be sad without Jon, Jen, Bri, and the rest of the graduated seniors. Also, they took out two of my events, Experimental Design and Mission Possible. MP was my FAVORITE, so I'm doubly bummed about that. Robot will be ok again this year, but my other events are looking iffy. I wish we could just rewind time and do last year again. But oh well, we'll hafta wait and see what happens I suppose....It will alllllllllll come together.

Former blogger John Sikma has a birthday on Thursday!! Happy birthday to him, even if he did abandon the blog world.

Life is crazy right now. I wish there were two more hours in each day and another day in the week!! It'd make stuff SO much less stressful. Maybe if I just DID less it would help, too. Oh well, Christmas break is coming in a few weeks...I need it!!

Something to consider...
