"I am the happiest (wo)man alive. I have that in me that can convert poverty to riches, adversity to prosperity, and I am more invulnerable than Achilles, fortune hath not one place to hit me."

~Thomas Browne, Relegio Media (1642)

*sigh* I miss deriving. :P

BUT HOMAN! I got to see Panic! At the Disco, Phantom Planet (SO AMAZING! <3), The Hush Sound, and Motion City Soundtrack (*cough* not a fan of the last one) this Saturday! Ofcourse, this DID mean getting effin' TRAMPLED and MAULED by 14-year old CRAZY FEMALE HUMANS. But fear not!..The Shruts had it under control. *rocks out*

Memorable lyrix by Panic:

"Things have changed for me, and that’s okay
I feel the same, I’m on my way, and I say
Things have changed for me, and that’s okay" ~The Green Gentleman

"If all our life is but a dream
Fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me

Hey moon, please forget to fall down
Hey moon, don’t you go down
You are at the top of my lungs
Drawn to the ones who never yawn" ~Northern Downpour

"They sang, so our matching legs are marching clocks
And we’re all too small to talk to god
Yes, we’re all too smart to talk to god
Oh, we’re all too smart to talk to god" ~Behind the Sea

So I know I haven't been the best at updating my blog this month. A LOT has happened! :D A lot of beautiful good things! For example...


At Michigan State University, College of Human Medicine. I cannot wait for this journey to begin. It's been so long since I've waited for this moment. Everything I have ever stood for during the past year had been shaken, and it seemed my entire foundation was uprooted on occasion. But in all of that commotion that was uncertainty, was the simple truth that everything in life is relative to your perspective. You shape what you see, what you feel, and what you become as a consequence of what you perceive..not just visually, but even subconsciously.

A wise professor once told me: "You are what you let your mind absorb."

In this very moment, I choose to absorb the wonderful uncertainty that is my future, the certainty that is my past, and the moment that is the present. In doing so, I choose to be who I am, true to myself.

I've written numerous poems these past few months, of which I'd like to share this one because of its relevance to this topic:

It feels like you're caught in a blaze
And staring at the fire.
As your eyes burn with fear,
Hatred and anger
All that was sanity
Brushed fire into straw
To make you go insane.

You're frozen forever-
Unable freedom
To speak, utter an emotion,
Live, breathe, or move.
Stiffled by the rigidity
That is the cold, you drown
Choking for warm air.

There is no warmth to lay
Solace to the cold
Nor water to calm the fire.
Here you stand broken,
Alone at a precipice-
Organic, molecular, atomic
And you are insignificant.

The fire, cold, warmth
Is relative.

bad fuel day May 16

The mood or feeling one experiences after having just filled his or her vehicle with $4.00+ per gallon gasoline. (Usually consists of a sense of great economic despair, impending doom, anger, frustration, depression and/or a combination of all the above)
"Leave me alone. I'm having a bad fuel day!"
