wisdom of the penguin



















Yesterday, I discovered that Penguins are smart!

All over campus it is crazy slippery like this:

 
















As I approached a particularly icy patch, I decided to try waddling like a penguin (in a very subtle way), and guess who was solid as can be!

So, next time you traverse the cold and slippery path,

Waddle Like a Penguin! (arrive alive!)

power of music

So life is hard, because of finals, and all the snow and computers crashing, and losing data, etc. Then my lovely little ipod chose to play 'Fix You' by Coldplay. This is one of the most beautiful songs ever I think, and it came at just the right time. Here are the lyrics:

When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse.


And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?


Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you


And high up above earth or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth


Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you


Tears stream, down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face and I...




Tears stream, down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face and I...




Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you.




Thank you ipod. Thank you.

so.....

I know I promised to make a positive post once a week.... but then my computer crashed, and school got crazy, and hasn't really let up....

I've also been quite the complainer the last few days, but I won't be putting any of that here. Needless to say,

When it rains it pours.


I just need to remember that



I LOVE RAIN!














So I'm going to try to embrace my trials! Wish me luck!
