i feel like i've lost all my creativity and originality. perhaps i haven't and they've just come out in different mediums, but my writing has most definitely been suffering. since i don't feel like my own words could properly express anything that's going on in my brain for now, i've decided to leave you with the lyrics of (drum roll please)...
the song of the moment.
i greatly encourage you to take the time to read all the lyrics. not because it's spiritually deep. nope, nothing like that. just pure girliness, plain and simple. this song describes a really nice place to be in life. when you finally realize that he wasn't all that and that you really are gonna be ok. moving on is so nice. i can't describe to you the relief. and when i found this song, i thought, "wow. this girl must be following my life and have written this just for me." :0)

"see you when you're 40" by dido

i've driven round in circles for three hours
it was bound to happen that i'd end up at yours
i temporarily forgot there's better days to come
i thought that i would give it just one more chance

cause i want, tonight, what i've been waiting for
but i found, tonight, what i'd been warned about

you think that you're complicated, deep mystery to all
well it's taken me a while to see, you're not so special
all energy no meaning, with a lot of words
so paper thin that one real feeling, could knock you down

and i've seen, tonight, what i'd been warned about
i'm gonna leave, tonight, before i change my mind

so see you when your forty, lost and all alone
being comforted by strangers you'll never need to know
not sad because you lost me
but sad because you thought it was cool to be sad

you think misery will make you stand apart from the crowd
well if you had walked past me today, i wouldn't have picked you out
i wouldn't have picked you out.

now i've seen, tonight, how i could waste my time
and i'll be on my way, and i won't be back
cause i've seen, tonight, what i've been warned about
you're just a boy, not a man, and i'm not coming back
