no substitute

There is just nothing like the smell of rain. No replacement whatsoever. There are a lot of things i miss living in Arizona. I miss water being around and lakes to sit by. I miss sitting on a dock reading or writing in my journal. But one of the things I miss most is the smell and feel of rain.
I'm sitting in my sister's house with the windows up letting in the cool breeze the rain has supplied. I am embracing this sensation as long as I can before I start heading back out west in the morning.
I think Abee likes it as much as I do.

I see the fire in your eyes...and I hope for the world that it never dies...

Well, I'm now in Austin. My time in North Texas was really made precious by the time I spent with my parents, grandma, and 5 amazing friends i got to chat with individually and catch up with. (Kayla, I'm sad it didn't work out for us!) Anyways, for those asking, my dad's knee surgery ewnt well, but I ended up staying an extra day in town nonetheless.

Now I'm in Austin with my sister and brother-in-law. We saw an AMAZING rendition of Much Ado About Nothing at Zilker Park. It is pretty much my favorite free outdoor theater ever! I saw West Side Story here a few years ago which began my huge Musical Theater interest. Well, that and a good friend I met in college who did high school musical theater. I still feel as if I'm on Arizona time!

Happy memorial day...and thanks to all of you serving or who have served. Erik, thanks for your sacrifice bro. You deserved the purple heart and I'm praying for a swift recovery and delayed time away from the line!

Laying in bed with lights off for almost three hours until now and still no sleep

self diagnosis :: Delayed sleep phase syndrome

this has been going on for at least a month! I've tried nyquil, reading, waking up ridiculously early the next day so as to 'fool' my body to sleep early the next night..all sorts of things and no luck! I'm getting tired of this! I want my zzzzz's! at normal times! not 5am-3pm!
