its off for quizzing tomorrow and I'm pumped.
weeks busy. I'm milking morning and evening and trying to keep my mental faculties in working order while coping with the loss of sleep. but life's good.
oh yeah
somethin i heard someone say about the presidential race:
"Wouldn't it be so dissapointing if you spent all year trying to convince everyone that your the best guy out there only to discover that nobody agrees with you?" lol

TELL me not, in mournful numbers,
Life is but an empty dream ! —
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
And things are not what they seem.

Life is real ! Life is earnest!
And the grave is not its goal ;
Dust thou art, to dust returnest,
Was not spoken of the soul.

Not enjoyment, and not sorrow,
Is our destined end or way ;
But to act, that each to-morrow
Find us farther than to-day.

Art is long, and Time is fleeting,
And our hearts, though stout and brave,
Still, like muffled drums, are beating
Funeral marches to the grave.

In the world's broad field of battle,
In the bivouac of Life,
Be not like dumb, driven cattle !
Be a hero in the strife !

Trust no Future, howe'er pleasant !
Let the dead Past bury its dead !
Act,— act in the living Present !
Heart within, and God o'erhead !

Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time ;

Footprints, that perhaps another,
Sailing o'er life's solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again.

Let us, then, be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate ;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait.

Hi guys...
today was very easy. I was workin on the computer at school and doodling around and trying my best to stay out of trouble. (i gave up on the impossible latter).
i'm hoping for school off tomorrow because we are gonna have snow tonight (the "biggest storm of the year....." otherwise called four measley inches. sad.. very sad).

And a quote i heard around here
"I know someone i get so mad at i could kick him into orbit!" lol

until next time,

the beast in me

The beast in me
Is caged by frail and fragile bars
Restless by day
And by night rants and rages at the stars
God help the beast in me

The beast in me
Has had to learn to live with pain
And how to shelter from the rain
And in the twinkling of an eye
Might have to be restrained
God help the beast in me

Sometimes it tries to kid me
That it's just a teddy bear
And even somehow manage to vanish in the air
And that is when I must beware
Of the beast in me that everybody knows
They've seen him out dressed in my clothes
The beast in me.

-johnny cash
The demons screech around my head
My life is gone, the passion’s dead
My thoughts are wild; my heart’s gone mad
I curse the world; my soul is sad.

I hate myself for what I’ve done
I made the cloak that hides the sun.
I bang my head against the wall
The barricade that made me fall.

I ask myself what long was known
The Devil hears my spirit groan.
My life is gone; my foes done well
I’ve made my bed in depths fo hell.

I see the King stretch out his hand
And thwart the Devil’s gruesome band
He draws me close and says to me,
“I love you still… now, please, love Me."

Dreams Come True

When you're certain that you doubt that you know your own mind
When you find out that your dream has been undermined
When you see clear as night that you can't make it far
By wishing on a godforsaken five-pointed star.
When you see by the light of your blown out wick
That it’s not what you think thats makin you tick,
That your life is not at all what its cracked up to be,
That you're floatin’ like a log in the middle of the sea.

Then you see whats not there and you fight for your dreams,
And you notice that their ocean has melted into streams.
Then you break from the lie that has made your spirit die.
And you feel that His power gave you wings that have flown
Past the sea, through the clouds and into the unknown.
