  • Mood:
  • Music:, today. Oh, and crosswalks.

I'm proud of myself. I actually read and wrote today. Doing both in one day is an accomplishment for me lately.

Mum, Dad, and I went to Don Lolo's (Mexican food) tonight. Besides awesome food, they have salt-free chips. Awesome. Well, Saturday is karaoke night over there, meaning that the restaurant is packed. We arrived just in time to leave just as they were getting started. I've always wanted to do karaoke, even though I'm a terrible singer.

On the way back, they were telling me about everything I missed in the past year, even though I've been in Ringgold a few times over the year. Then as we turned away from downtown Ringgold, I saw something I had never seen before in that town. A crosswalk.

Why does this stand out? The first time I walked around downtown Decatur I was really excited because there were crosswalks (albeit in a bad layout; we are talking about Atlanta), and those just didn't exist in Ringgold. Not too many people walked around downtown Ringgold except for the kids who walk somewhere in Ringgold after school. Seriously, part of the town doesn't have sidewalks, and until recently, not a single crosswalk was in sight. It's dangerous.
I just discovered that the nail colour on my toes is called Limitless. Does that mean it diverges?

This meme showed up a few times on the friendslist, so I decided to try it out. Here you go. You may have to highlight to read all the extra notes. I made a lot of 'em.

× I spend ridiculous amounts of money on makeup(This meme is probably geared toward the female half of the Internet population, and although I'm an element of that half, I don't wear makeup often.) I plan on achieving a major goal/dream.  (I have a list, too.) × I am proficient on a musical instrument.

I want to own my own business.  (Well, it would be cool, and it would answer the "future" question above.) × I smoke. I spend way too much time on the computer than on anything else.
Nobody has ever said I'm normal. Sad movies, games, and the like can cause a trickle of tears every now and then. × I am proficient in the use of many types of firearms and combat weapons.

× I wish there were a way to erase past mistakes.  (Only if there were a way to erase any negative consequences as well.) × I sleep more than 12 hours a day. I wish I could be prouder of what I've accomplished, but it's never enough.
I need more time to myself. I wish I was more open-minded. × I hope that I go really prematurely grey.
