If you get a moment, and have a couple bucks...

Hey everyone, my friend Lola is taking part in the Komen Grand Rapids Race for the Cure 2006 to raise money for Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation Grand Rapids Affiliate and would really welcome your support. If you'd like to sponsor them, go to this webpage and drop a couple dimes.

it's almost like laughing at the same tired joke for far too long. telling the same stories. wearing the same clothes.

this isn't me. this was me. i walked out the front door of this party years ago.

yet here i am.

it's like i never left. nothing's changed. that's the hardest part. so much should have.

i got on the train. i got off the train. somedays i can't even find the tracks.

this is not the end of the road. i refuse to let it happen. i will not lose my way.

gotta focus. gotta leave. gotta get back on the train. i know i can. i did it before. it was the best time of my life.

i can't get bogged down. i have to shift my priorities. i need to remember that i'm not staying at this party for long. but i need to grab my coat before i can leave.

It will be mine... oh yes... it will be mine.

Someday. Someday I'll own this.

When I do, I'll be able to make movies that look like this.

Today, I believe, will be a long day, because I'm going to be waiting for it to be over all day. I don't start at work until 11:30a, I don't get out until 8:30p. My boss is coming in today supposedly. Hopefully he'll bring that other guy he brought when I was all alone to stand over my shoulder and tell me everything I do wrong. Joy.

Thankfully though at the end of the day Erin will be here, which is why I'm going to be counting the minutes between now and then. We're going to Marine City tomorrow for the weekend. My moms birthday is tomorrow. There's going to be a lot of people around. It should be a lot of fun.

If only I can ge through work today and tomorrow.

I haven't heard anything back from GRCC yet, but it's still early. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
