dug up

A couple posts ago I mentioned a draft I hadn't posted yet. I was reading it and selected just a paragraph that I thought was okay and am going to post it now. It doesn't apply anymore, but since I dug it up, I'll lay it down.

He roller skated into my heart and knocked me right over. Right in front of me and I couldn't see it coming. Looking up at him he offers to help me up but I can't touch him. Suddenly my skin is heart deep and if he touched me I'm afraid he'd know what I feel but not feel the same. He can't drop me if I never let him help me up.

Things I'm Learning from School

It's not a money crisis. It's a confidence issue. The U.S. is pretty rich, excepting the $8.9 trillion debt, and if we go into panic mode, THEN there will be serious problems. Stay cool everybody. Of course there's nothing we can do when CEOs are greedy, short-minded idiots and cause a company to fail. But we can put a little faith in the federal government organization and not crash.

We're not [necessarily] blessed because we have more. If we have more than another country, it's because we've taken more than our share. [The problems this causes elsewhere] isn't a God problem, it's a human problem, and it requires a human solution. -roughly quoted from Laura Hamblin, Prof. at UVU, Orem, UT.

If you think you can't contribute to world economy/peace/order, try micro loans. I saw a site called Kiva. check it out. Your measly $25 could be the difference between success and failure in a foreign entrepreneur's life.

Language is just math, with letters. Everything really is just math.

Taking a class with a boyfriend is fun.

I'm sure there are hundreds of carpooling possibilities that we all miss out on because we don't speak to one another.

Life needs to be learned.
