I am humbled in this city
There seems to be an endless sea of people like us
Wakeful dreamers, I pass them on the sunlit streets
In our rooms filled with laughter
We make hope from every small disaster
-Painting by Chagall (The Weepies)
Conversations from the past week:
H: my English has emproved.
Yasmine: ‘emproved,’ huh?
H: as i spell ‘improve’ wrong.
they’re saying that eating too fast can give you diabetes
Yasmine: gross! people take the fun out of EVERYTHING
Z: i KNOW
as my uncle used to say, TO HELL WITH THE SCIENTISTS
J: so how are you otherwise
Yasmine: doing well! just stressed out these days, working on job applications
i love job apps!
especially not doing them!
that is my fav part of it
i wish i could NOT do them, and still have a job and salary!
money doesn’t buy happiness, i know, but it sure does help
J: but if you shop at the dollar store, you can get a better deal on cookies at least.
that is the secret to true happiness
Yasmine: J, that’s GENIUS
H (again): eat eat!

Re. the Dostana soundtrack -
A: this one is a “pump it up in the car” song!
Yasmine: oh, those are the BEST songs
music should be listened to loudly
“this should be played on high volume, preferably, in a residential area”
H (and yet again): omg, you and i should be one person
we would be soo rocking
Yasmine: is the world ready for THIS?!
i do not think so
H: oh yes!
we would be the most awesomeness
that awesome could ever have
Yasmine: dude, speaking of amazing, wasn’t my cartwheeling wideo AMA-ZING?!
that was BEYOND AMAZING
your butt must have had some padding
Yasmine: hahaha my butt TOTALLY has lotsa padding, unfortunately!
Bean: it’s so cold and gloomy in SC today
its 68 degreees!
it’s 67 degrees here, too, and so gray and gloomy looking!
god, we are SO spoiled!
Bean: 66 now
In other news, today (because it’s so gray and gloomy), I wore the new boots I bought last week for $20. Knee-length black boots with enough straps and buckles to give ‘em a rockstar look. The problem was, it took me an extra few minutes to properly put them on today, confused as I was as to which boot belonged on my right foot and which on my left. (”Does the zipper go on the inside? Or the outside? Inside, I think.”) Clearly, it is sad that I’m 27 years old and spend most of my days feeling like I’m seven.
