Life of Leaving Home by Yellowcard

I can see all the footsteps left behind
Every second I gave
Every song was a snapshot of my life
I needed something to say

Started out in the last slow motion scene
Watching everyone change
Made a map of a one-way road from here
Had no reason to stay

I am awake and alive
There is something calling me
More than a moment in time
It’s a dream I’m following
On my own
More than a moment in time
It’s a life of leaving home

Think of me when the stars come out tonight
Take a look at the sky
Never said that I could burn out that bright
But I needed to try

I am awake and alive
There is something calling me
More than a moment in time
It’s a dream I’m following
On my own
More than a moment in time
It’s a life of leaving home

The day that I found my voice
I knew that I had no choice
The only way I’d ever learn to love
Is if I found it
On my own

I am awake and alive
There is something calling me
More than a moment in time
It’s a dream I’m following
On my own
More than a moment in time
It’s a life of leaving home

More than a moment in time
It’s a life of leaving home

“OK, yes it’s a…

OK, yes it’s a mistake. I know it’s a mistake, but there are certain things in life where you know it’s a mistake but you don’t really know it’s a mistake because the only way to really know it’s a mistake is to make the mistake and look back and say ‘yep, that was a mistake.’ So really, the bigger mistake would be to not make the mistake, because then you’d go your whole life not knowing if something is a mistake or not. And dammit, I’ve made no mistakes! I’ve done all of this; my life, my relationship, my career, mistake-free. Does any of this make sense to you?

Daily Prompt: But No Cigar

I guess there have been a lot of instances in my life where I came thisclose to getting what I’ve been working for but didn’t. I hated how they all went, and I hated how they made me feel, but eventually I learned to accept what happened and move on until I either learn from them, or simply forget them. That’s actually one of the good things about me: I always forget. I really have no idea why I can never get things right. I always come so close, every single time, but mostly I just fail miserably. Is it because I didn’t work hard enough? Did I overlook certain flaws? Don’t I deserve it? I still don’t have the answers.

Mostly these involve personal matters, but the most recent incident was mostly about my internship applications, which totally bummed me out. Well, I’m not officially rejected yet, but I think I’m getting there considering how much I screwed up during the interview. Actually, that’s another thing I need to share here but right now I don’t have the time. This week has really been all about stress, disappointment, hardwork, anger, bipolar disorder, and all the negative shit you can possibly imagine. But maybe once I find the time this weekend, I’ll fill you in.

That’s the Spirit!

That's the Spirit!

Today, January 12, 2014, at PCC, during the last part of my brother’s Life in the Spirit Seminar

This is the first time that I actually had a great time hearing mass and listened to every word they said since high school. I felt like all of the faith I lost these past few years have been taken back, and it just feels so good. It’s like high school all over again, and the Catholic world is making me feel like I’m part of something again.

It’s like waking up from a bad dream. Thank you, Monsignor Santos! Thank you!
