goodbye facebook...

Well last night I did it, with the moral support of 2/3 of my roommates I made the decision to leave facebook until April 29 when my semester is over. It hasn't even been 24 hours off of facebook and I already have accomplished more in the past morning than I have in the past 3 months. Facebook = carolyns sad, sad addiction.

Until the end of the semester you can get me at, I will still have gchat and I will be using this blog probably more frequently. And you know that crazy device called a phone..yea I still have that too. :)

Every day is ice cream and chocolate cake

I have had so much time to reflect while I've been here in colorado and as much as I love it and I feel like every other minute I am thinking about the reasons why i need to be here forever...Part of the reason for that is because its easier to believe in God here...i know you are confused, I am too but when I see the kind of beauty that I saw at sunset tonight you would understand why too...

but more than anything I have been thinking about contentment. The moment, your life, the current all is what it is. you cant change it...And I am in philadelphia now, although I hate the city I love the people. I have amazing roommates, friends, and a church that I wouldnt change for the world. And for that. I am truly thankful and content. It is what it is. And to me it is wonderful.

These are some lyrics I have been listening to on repeat from the weepies...

You can ask about it, but nobody knows the way
No breadcrumb trail to follow through your days
It takes an axe, sometimes a feather
In the sunshine and bad weather
It's a matter of getting deeper in, any way you can

All this beauty
You might have to close your eyes
And slowly open wide
All this beauty, we traveled all night
We drank the ocean dry
And watched the sun rise

I can see your new awake
Let me assure you friend:
Every day is ice cream and chocolate cake
And what you make of it, let me say
You get what you take from it so be amazed
And never stop, never stop, never stop
You gotta be brave

reasons why...

Saw the movie yes man tonight and i was actually really impressed...i laughed really hard during some parts and it wasnt what i expected at all. it makes me want to say yes to everything..

in other news i have started rediscovering old music because i have been spending so much time in the car driving to and from the mountains and i have also had much time to think about reasons why i should move back here..
-nice people
-activity level

more to come on that later...
for now i leave you with this little gem

6 degrees of kevin bacon?

Well I always knew I would run into people who know other people, but its becoming somewhat ridiculous. I feel as though every time i meet someone new i play the oh do you know so and so? and they dont but they know someone COMPLETELY random that they shouldnt know.

for example:
I went to olive garden with my family in newark the other night and i was talking to our waiter who is from i asked him if he knew some people i knew in lewes, he did not know them but SOMEHOW we realized he is cousins with a girl i used to dance with for years and was really good friends with in dover...random.

also, last night at our new years party I watched friends from delaware interact with people I knew from philly because they already knew each blows my mind...which is another reason why whenever someone new friends me on facebook i immediately check our "mutual friends"

So for now i leave you with this picture

and my new years work out more. i thought i'd be original this year :)
