Spring




(UO scarf, cardigan and tights, H&M dress, old field hockey socks)

Yesterday's outfit..and a view of mine and Olivia's nook.

And here's a poem I wrote yesterday..hope you like it!

I feel their faces on me, as heavy as the sun, and yet I keep on walking, though my eyelids weigh a ton. I only wanted to make a smile, appear before me on the street, but alas, the heart thaws slower, than the snow beneath my feet. She said it'd be an early spring, that she could tell from everything, from the dying of the bitter wind, to the returning color in her skin. One month until I'm free again, driving south with an anxious hand. I'll sit outside and watch the sky, and wonder how the day flew by, cause you and i, are absent of time. I'll watch as your grows past your eyes, and smile from the lack of surprise, cause I've always missed the simplest things, from the bruise on your knee, to the sunset you see. I fall in love with thoughts of you, the dreams I have, can you see them too?  That look in your eyes, such a beautiful view, like falling slowly from the skies, down onto an ocean of blue. The tension released from a child's string, cut from the ties that held my meaning, but do not frown for I will be back, once I find what it is I lack. I know I'm most happy in moments of you, but with miles between us, what can I do? I must live my dreams, within me without you, find out what it means, to be someone true. I want to inspire, and again feel desire, to live each day with passion and fire. With you I feel I could see the world, and really see it for all it holds, we'd meet new people and treasure their faces, breathe new air in the farthest of places. Cause I'm following the light that you gave to my eyes, and learning now that I don't need this disguise. What was there all along, will always remain, even as we drift, to a different frame. Cause when we return to each other's hold, I'll forever forget this winter's cold. A beautiful boy with curious eyes, I could never explain how you make me alive.

Field hockey, horses, Georgetown...have you ever wanted for anything? Sounds like you've lived the pampered suburban life. could this be a case of "poor little rich girl"?

I played field hockey for one year at my public high school. Horseback riding is something that's in my family, my father grew up on a farm in poor, rural Pennsylvania. I live in Virginia, outside of DC, would you like me to move? Yes, I've lived a very privelaged life, but isn't it better that I take full advantage of the opportunities given to me and embrace them? I think you should look a little deeper before you cast stereotypes.

We are all of a certain stereotype of one kind or another. For example, I am originally from Idaho - quick, what comes to mind? See what I mean? I'm not suggesting you move. It just irritates me when people wine about petty things when they've basically had life handed to them on a silver platter. Oh, another thought - most poor people can't afford horses. So your father must not have been amoung the truly poor in that "poor, rural Pennsylvania" farming community. What do you mean "take advantage of the opportunities given to me and embrace them"? Does that mean spending a crap load of money on trendy clothes - even if they come from thrift stores - and travel? When does having a PRIVILEGED (that public school must not have had very good spelling instructors)life translate into something other than spending money?

We may all be easily stereotyped, but it doesn't mean that we should. My parents worked very hard to get to where they are today to be able to provide for my sister and I. I really don't think I whine that much, and if you don't want to read what I have to say, then don't, simple as that. I didn't ask for a horse, it was something that my parents saw me take a genuine interest in and love for, so they got me a horse through my cousins who also ride, for very cheap. Embracing opportunities such as sports and travel, school and experiences. I don't spend a ton of money, many of my clothing items were gifts, secondhand or shared with my sister. I am not rich by any means. I work to pay bills and buy groceries, the same as anyone else. And sorry for the spelling error, I'm sure you've been guilty of a few in your life..
