Give me the right music, and I’ll feel like writing until I tell the world’s greatest story.
It’s going to be a very busy semester.
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply...– Lao Tzu
One of my favorite things
Being told good morning by him hours before I actually plan to get up. I always smile.
Remember sadness is always temporary. This, too, shall pass.– Chuck T. Falcon
By starlight I know you As lovely as a wish granted true– The Smashing Pumpkins
Small moments made my day
Soldier in his company: Grimm is this your girl?
Richard: Yeah (smiles) This is Caitlin.
Saw Richard today after not seeing him for almost a month. It was really awesome. He still makes me happy and I know I make him happy, even when he’s trying to be a tough guy. We went to the PX and smiled a lot at each other and had pretty good conversation. Later we went and just parked my car at the lake, and yes, that was incredible too (for reasons I will not type on my blog). Overall,...
Let this be my last word, that I trust in your love.– Rabindranath Tagore (via quote-book)
Reading old letters makes me feel closer to you. I hang onto each word, even though I’ve read them plenty of times, but there’s just something about seeing you write, “Love you!” that makes me feel pure joy and love towards you.
Anxious for tomorrow
I’m planning on visiting Richard tomorrow and I haven’t seen him since he graduated. I’m really excited, but also nervous. Last night, I feel like I got very emotional and I hope he doesn’t think that I’m visiting just to be annoying. I really just miss him and want to see him again. It’s been a while. I just hope everything is okay and that he isn’t mad...
A hug can turn your day around, it’s like an emotional Heimlich. Someone puts...– Pushing Daisies (via kari-shma) (via quote-book)
If you love and get hurt, love more. If you love more and hurt more, love even...– William Shakespeare (via 500daysofkissingmypillow) (via quote-book)
I feel like I’m radiating joy. I’m just beyond happy. Today was most excellent.
I don’t want to be married just to be married. I can’t think of anything...– Mary Ann Shaffer
I can’t look at puppies. They make my heart hurt because they’re so...– Broski
It is the morning of Monday.– Broski, Waffle House 1 a.m.ish
I have furniture. Yay! Now comes the fun part: arranging it in a cool way.
Honey, I'm home!
I’m back in the city I love. Even though my furniture is moving up here tomorrow, I’m just glad to be back and know that this is where I’ll be living this year with two amazing roommates. Hey, 2010-2011 school year: Bring it on.
That’s how long it’s been since I’ve seen him. Womp womp.
I have some of the most amazing friends in the whole wide world.
Blah. Feeling gross.
You feel like you have to go to church after you read that Cosmo.– My hairdresser, on the filth of Cosmopolitan magazine haha.
First oddity: I was on the game Survivor. Second oddity: I was on of the final few left in the game. Third oddity: A guy on the show kissed me against my will to increase my odds of getting voted off since everyone knew I was in a relationship. So, I left the island and proceeded to walk to Fort Jackson, S.C. to find Richard and tell him he doesn’t need to worry. Fourth oddity: I was...
Sounds so good in my ear when I talk to him on the phone.
My mission for today is to get my room completely done: organized, boxed and mostly packed. Wow. Here we go.
Hangovers are a bitch/scary
Being in the shower and momentarily losing my vision was uncool. Glad that Richard was able to be there for me. Feeling way better now after lying down for a couple hours.
Ready for my own place? Hell yes.
Me: And I am going to side step for just a quick second. I'm just somewhat nervous because I feel like I've really committed to him and the army way of life. I was already used to long distance with him pre Army, now it's just heightened a bit. I just feel really dedicated to him, and even though that's exciting, it's kinda scary. It's still a relationship. he could still leave me. you know? I'm just trying to live in the moment day to day and support him no matter what because I really believe in him...I'm just a bit scared. I just had to get that out of my system
My friend: yeah. ok well, lets see, the fact is, its hard. sometimes i think the ones at home have a harder job than us. its hard back there cause your always worrying, but the one thing is be there for him, he might come home angry or not in the mood to talk, just give him that time and be calm with him. understanding.. but the fact is we worry too, like i know time doesnt stop at home cause im here.. like the girl i was interested in back home and thought showed interest in me, i came home from 5 days out at a checkpoint and first thing i saw "blah blah blah is in a relationship with blah blah blah" it happens, and you gotta realize that its hard and it takes practice and takes time.
I’m talking to one of my childhood friends right now. He’s over in Northern Afghanistan serving in the army. Be thankful for the life you live in the U.S. That’s all.
But I never told you What I should have said No, I never told you I just held...– I never told you by Colbie Caillat
It’s a rock ‘n’ roll kind of day.
I’ve got to get back on my awesome sleeping pattern that I had last week. Waking up at noon just feels like a waste.
