Through the night we were waiting for a sign, maybe rendered in the darkened sky...

I got paid today. Getting paid rocks. I feel so rich. I'm so broke though. *laugh*

Walking Downtown by Copeland is one of my favorite songs ever. It's the first Copeland song I ever heard, and I loved it from the very first time I heard it, and since then I've loved it just the same, because it's great.

Dry your eyes
There are birds singing on lampposts
They don't know what all your crying's for

There are some random lyrics from the song for your reading pleasure.

School was fine today. Work was good. Got another 3 hours in. Punched out some wallets and put them in their little boxes, stuck some proofs in their albums, stuff like that. It's fun to look at other people's pictures. I like my job.

Tomorrow I think the band is going to practice, and then people are going to come over for a hott par-tay. Emily is covering a babysitting job for me, which is good, because making plans got really confusing because things were expected that I didn't know were expected. So yeah.

I'm tired, and hungry, and sleepy, and my feet hurt from wearing these massive shoes all day. [/whine]

Oh! I almost forgot that I had to make phone calls at work today. I hate talking on the phone to people I don't know. It was a stretch for me. *laugh* I guess I should get used to it, huh?

I wonder if the stars will be out tonight.

  1. Mara,
    I'm bummed!! I had your blog entered on my favorites but evidently I did something wrong. I kept going back to an entry you made in August or something so I thought you were evidently too busy to write anything. I just happened to get click happy tonight and realized, quite by accident, that I was missing out. BUMMER!!
    Anyway, I'm glad you like your job and that there are birds singing on lamp posts. All in all, life is good.
    We like to listen to "Mara's blog" while we eat lunch. You've got some good music on it. :) See ya later.
    Free in Him,
    Summer Lee

  2. You are sleeping right behind me, Little Stomach-sleeping, Frog-pajama-wearing Girl.

    No stars, unfortunately, but only because the moon was so bright and pretty. Even with the big bite taken out of it.

    Reminds me of Eisley. What's the song about sticking a piece of the moon in your hair and putting stars in a bucket and giving the other half of the moon to someone you love so they won't forget you?

    They sing about hair a lot, kind of. There's that great line that goes something like "I had tangles in my hair, but you made me feel so pretty". Great line. Wonderfully girly. *laugh*

    I don't think you have any Eisley on here.

    Hott par-tay? Not at the rate we're going. *chuckle*

    This is crazy: The video of you singing at MtlFest has almost 190 views. That's kind of a lot.

  3. Ooh. I love that Copeland song, although I admit, the first time I heard it, I was a snotty little 13(or something) year-old, and made fun of the fact that they used "downtown" twice, which made my brother mad, because he loved the song.

    You double-booked? Ach. All of my friends are growing up far quicker than I am...*laugh*

    There was visible fog on the field last night during my soccer game. I'm not sure why I felt led to say that, but when feeling led "yours is not to question, but only to obey." or something like that.
