Ten Things.


This summer I'm going to do this.


name ten things you wanna do before you die and then go do them. 
name ten places you really wanna see before you die and then go to them
name ten books you wanna read before you die and then go read them
name ten songs you wanna hear again before you die, get all of your friends together and scream them


because right now all you have is time time time yeah, 
but someday that time will run out. 
that's the only thing you can be absolutely certain about. 


think of all the things that are wrong with your life and then fix them
think of all the things that you love about your life, be thankful you are blessed with them
think of all the things that hold you back and realize that you don't need them
think of all the mistakes you have made in your life, make sure that you never repeat them


because right now all you have is time time time yeah, 
but someday that time will run out. 
that's the only thing you can be absolutely certain about. 


name ten thousand reasons why you never wanna die, go and tell someone who might've forgotten
try to list the endless reasons why it's good to be alive, and then just smile for awhile about them


I would marry you if I could, Paul Baribeau.  For now I'll settle for listening to your songs on repeat.

p.s. I finally fixed the header, and even decided to change the picture.  I think it's a change for the better.
