yoga was very taxing tonight.

Approaching the twilight of my existence
I bless you life...
Because you never gave me
either deceitful hopes,
or unjust foils,
nor undeserved endurances...
Because I see,
at the end of my ruggedy trail;
that I was the architect of my own fate.
That if I extracted the bile
or the honey of things
was because I put in them
bile or zesty honey.
When I planted rose bushes
I harvested always roses.
It's true that to my exuberance
has followed the winter;
but you didn't tell me that May was going to be eternal...
I found undoubtedly,
too long the nights of my sorrows;
but you didn't promise me
only merry nights
and in exchange
I had other nights reverently serene.
I loved and I was loved.
The sun shined on my face...
Life you owe me nothing.
Life we are of Peace.

Song of the Day: Maybe- Kelly Clarkson


I want to beg of you much as I can to be patient
toward all that's unsolved in your heart,
and learn to love the questions themselves,
like locked rooms, or like books that are
written in a very foreign tongue.

Do not seek the answers, which cannot be given you,
because you would not be able to live them,
and the point is to live everything.

Live the question now,
perhaps you will then, gradually, without noticing it,
live along some distant day into the answer.

"Letters to a Young Poet"

Post-Grad Blues.

I applied for 89 jobs today off numerous websites. I counted.

I was screwed money out of my paycheck. I counted.

Had another temp job today. Fine.

Not able to fully pay up my rent this month, so I'm behind.

My monthly was stolen on Halloween. Great.

I broke my spare pair of glasses two weeks ago.

I probably can't visit my boyfriend this weekend in Pennsylvania, so I'll see him at the end of the month due to conflicting schedules.

And my current job hasn't given anyone a raise and our commission sucks so I'm completely, 100% unmotivated to be there.

Today is not my day. Yesterday was not my day. This is not my month. And this is not where I expected myself after graduation.
