sierraodessa To the little girl in the supermarket buying lipstick:

Get an umbrella instead. And don't ever let anyone tell you that you're not already equipped with everything you will ever need.

sierraodessa One day we woke up to the end of August and we greeted the early morning with groans and third cups of coffee. With sticky fingers, I felt that the walls were closing in on me; there was something so final about the sound of that bell. I suppose I could sit here and wish time away, or I could scream at the sky to keep the days from passing, but time has no sympathy and I am well aware that it waits for none of us. I fear that we have already begun to say some of our hardest goodbyes and these goodbyes will continue to hang quietly in the air between us for the next half a year. We will do our best to shove them deep into our closets, or behind the books resting beneath our beds, but they will be there until we have no choice but to address them and choke out the only words our minds will articulate. We will regret the words still left in our ribcage after it is all said and done and we won't be the first ones with syllables still left in our guts. One last beginning is so difficult when you know the ending is straight ahead. 2d
