“Seeing death as the end of life is like seeing the horizon as the end of the ocean.” ~David Searls

“One kernel is felt in a hogshead; one drop of water helps to swell the ocean; a spark of fire helps to give light to the world. None are too small, too feeble, too poor to be of service. Think of this and act.” ~Hannah Moore

“In one drop of water are found all the secrets of all the oceans” ~Kahlil Gibran

“Roll on, thou deep and dark blue Ocean - roll! Ten thousand fleets sweep over thee in vain; Man marks the earth with ruin - his control stops with the shore.”
~Lord Byron

from random friends, family, etc.

sometimes I think I should just dump the bottle of bleach over my head.....I promise I have more Jessica Simpson moments than Jessica Simpson does. I guess I'm still baffled myself that Chicken of the Sea really is Tuna!!!!! LoL

Have you seen 300?

The Pythia (Greek: Πυθία) was the priestess at the Temple of Apollo at Delphi, located on the slopes of Mount Parnassus. The Pythia was widely credited for her prophecies inspired by Apollo, giving her a prominence unusual for a woman in male-dominated ancient Greece. The Delphic oracle was established in the 8th century BC.[1] The last recorded response was given in AD 393, when the emperor Theodosius I ordered pagan temples to cease operation. During this period the Delphic Oracle was the most prestigious and authoritative oracle in the Greek world. The oracle is one of the best-documented religious institutions of the classical Greek world. Writers who mention the oracle include Herodotus, Thucydides, Euripides, Sophocles, Plato, Aristotle, Pindar, Aeschylus, Xenophon, Diodorus, Strabo, Pausanias, Plutarch, Livy, Justin, Ovid, Lucan, Julian, and Clement of Alexandria.


My Life is Average

I was spending the day with my boyfriend and drifted off while he was playing call of duty. An hour later I woke myself up talking in my sleep. My boyfriend was now staring at me and I asked him what was wrong. He told me I had just been having a conversation with Sean Connery in my sleep. MLIA.

Today I was having trouble focusing on my homework when my dad turned on the fireplace. I ran downstairs to sit by the fireplace with my homework. why? because I wanted to feel like hermione granger in the Gryffindor common room. it worked. I finished all my homework. MLIA

Today, I was at school. Everyone was talking about how much they love Twilight. Not even two seconds later, you see a guy with glitter all over him, running down the hallway, running from people dressed as Dracula, Alucard, Lestat, Blade and Buffy. I love my school. MLIA

Today, my first choice university sent me an acceptance package. Thrilled, I opened it to find the standard letter, a book about the campus, and a small package of confetti with step-by-step instructions for a happy dance. I knew I picked right. MLIA

Learn from My Fail

after a huge ice storm do not dive face first into what you think is snow to make a snow angel…also ice is very unforgiving. #LFMF

When dialing a number on a fax machine, listen to make sure it connects rather than have a co-worker tell you that you accidentally dialed a phone sex number. #LFMF

Don’t assume that it’s cute that your brand new puppy ate a whole bowl of cat food. However, you SHOULD assume that she will have explosive diarrhea all over your sheets and floor in the middle of the night. #LFMF

Customers are Fun

Fish Trek 2: It All Goes Downstream From Here
Bookstore Colorado, USAColorado, USA

Customer: “This book looks interesting. How do I watch it?”
Me: “Watch it?”
Customer: “Yes, where can I find the movie?”
Me: “I don’t think this book has been adapted into a movie.”
Customer: “What do you mean? Where can I go to watch it? I want to know what happens in the book!”
Me: “Forgive me for asking, but if you want to know what happens, why not just read it?”
Customer: “Read? How stupid! Where’s the movie! All books are made into movies so that we don’t have to read them!”
Me: “I am sorry, I can’t help you. This is a book store. Only popular books–usually adventure stories–are adapted into movies. I am quite sure that this book hasn’t been made into a movie.”
Customer: “Why not?!”
Me: “Because it’s a fishing manual.”

The House on Dark Street

Every window had a curtain
green like underwater gloom
in the shadows lived a girl
sadder than a lonely moon
there she lived with just her mother
and a cat as gold as dusk
in the garden she sat swinging
eating apples red as rust
when the moon was purple glowing
and the damson tree was black
then she heard her mother calling
come on Charlotte
come on back
leaving her beloved garden
where the shadows played with night
Charlotte went into the darkness
and her presence made it bright
there on Dark street they were happy
eating plums by candlelight
people walking by could see them
in the haunting lovely night.
