i was talking to a coworker today who told me that as much as he loves working with all of us, if he was offered a job with benefits, he would have to take it, because he needs to look out for HIM. i told him that the best advice i ever received in life was when my mother told me - as i was leaving home 3 months after my 18th birthday - "Aubrey, live your life for YOU." She wanted me to make decisions not because of others, to not lose weight for boys, to not sacrifice my happiness to appease anyone. that it is MY life to live, and i have to live with my choices.

what is the best advice that you ever received?

as always, tickled pink when running into people i know. today, oatmeal came to say hullo, and it clicked that i haven't seen him since DaDa in '03. cheez, that's a long time to not see someone that lives PRACTICALLY in the same town.

time sure flies.

and now i'm sleepy, so i must clambor onto my cloud bed to fill the vortex in the middle up with my ass until morning. i shall see you then.


yay for having tomorrow off.

A few months before I was supposed to get married (at 17, because that's what you do in Arkansas) this lady I work with sat me down and asked why I was going to marry Cliff. I said "because he's so nice to me". (He was my first boyfriend after growing out of the bab-boy phase.)
She just looked at me and said "Sarah, you can't marry someone just because he's nice to you."
That thought had honestly never occurred to me. Major turning point there. I ultimately called off the wedding and moved to England instead :-)

it never ceases to amaze me about how one simple moment can provide us with such amount of absolute clarity, and thusly changes our lives DRASTICALLY for the better.
