these are my favorite songs of this week! i LOVE THEM!!!!

"But i got a sweet tooth that'll never come loose and the truth of the matter is..."

"I don't know if you can dance, if the thought ever ocurred to you, if you eat what you've been given or push it around your plate, I'd like to cool for you just the same if you want to, I am game."

also i think Lisa Hannigan looks like Leah...just sayin

"there are years that ask questions and years that answer"

-Zora Neales Hurston

For me though, its more like "there are weeks that ask questions and weeks that answer"
Last week the question was "Can you get through this?" I prayed all the time that I would be able to get through it. I prayed at night, on the way to the library, on the way back, on the way to class and during class. I knew I could do it but once I got to the weekend the question was more like "you're doing a good job but let's change things up, Can you get though it NOW?!"

This week was my answer. I made it! I made it through last week and the weekend. Oh this week was wonderful! It was filled with time that last week I did not have. But don't think I forgot to be thankful. Next week might ask the same question or it could be an answer. I guess we'll see.

I'm currently reading Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston and I just finished reading The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I really like The Great Gatsby. I forgot how good it is. And so far I like "Their Eyes Were Watching God".

"anyone's any was all to her"

Happy Valentine's Weekend!
I love Valentine's day! but this year I feel like its going to last all weekend!
I don't know why people say they hate this holiday. Ever since elementary school its been my favorite day of the whole year! I LOVE it. Forget Christmas and Halloween!
Here's a poem for you guys by E. E. Cummings. I LOVE this poem its the best love poem that I have read in a really long time! If you want to discuss the meaning of this poem, please do so!

Anyone Lived in a Pretty How Town

by E. E. Cummings
anyone lived in a pretty how town
(with up so floating many bells down)
spring summer autumn winter
he sang his didn't he danced his did

Women and men(both little and small)
cared for anyone not at all
they sowed their isn't they reaped their same
sun moon stars rain

children guessed(but only a few
and down they forgot as up they grew
autumn winter spring summer)
that noone loved him more by more

when by now and tree by leaf
she laughed his joy she cried his grief
bird by snow and stir by still
anyone's any was all to her

someones married their everyones
laughed their cryings and did their dance
(sleep wake hope and then)they
said their nevers they slept their dream

stars rain sun moon
(and only the snow can begin to explain
how children are apt to forget to remember
with up so floating many bells down)

one day anyone died i guess
(and noone stooped to kiss his face)
busy folk buried them side by side
little by little and was by was

all by all and deep by deep
and more by more they dream their sleep
noone and anyone earth by april
wish by spirit and if by yes.

Women and men(both dong and ding)
summer autumn winter spring
reaped their sowing and went their came
sun moon stars rain
