So sweet that it's sick, so dope it's disgustin’...

if you go to school in a castle you might get to go on a kindergarten graduation trip to JAPAN.
and if you work in a school that is a castle the same is true.

i will dream japanese dreams during nap time today.

to remember

  • forgiveness
  • guys really do mature slower than girls
  • better to have loved, better to love, always
  • not everyone can always give you want you need, and not always because they don't want to
  • little gestures of love and kindness go a long way
  • endorphins are the best drugs
  • sunshine is magic

for emily

yesterday evening was spent with my lovely friend sarah
we perched ourselves atop her balcony twenty two floors in the sky
and saw the whole city.
i looked left and saw the metropolis of kaohsiung, the 85 building and bright lights dancing,
yonder was the dark expanse of the ocean and the dull lights of sleeping boats,
as i moved right we saw fireworks,
we're all always celebrating here.
cityscape gave way to mountains and temples and
in front of it all was the love river
around which trains kept passing in the night
and making me feel lucky like a little kid.

we listened to old beats and tried out new ones
and drank a tall asian beer
and laughed harder than i've laughed in a long long time.

the most unexpected best.
i love my job i love my job i love my job

it was a really great field trip until the monkeys attacked us.
true story.
luckily a nimble asian man with a slingshot came to the rescue.
also true.

no matter how far i travel,
will always be 'byward' first

Obama obama obamaa

"We can choose to go back to the same top-down policies that got us into this mess, or you can choose to move us forward with the policies that have been getting us out of this mess.

You can choose to go back to a foreign policy that gets us into wars with no plan for getting out, or you can help move us forward and end the Afghan war responsibly and bring our troops home, and focus on the terrorists who were going to attack us.

You can choose to turn back the clock 50 years for women and for immigrants and for gays and for lesbians—or you can stand up and say, we want to move forward. We believe in the country where no matter who you are, or what you look like, or where you come from, or who you love, you can make it if you try.
" —President Obama in Iowa today

if there is a typewriter in this asian flea market im going to find it. and im going to use my chinese to bargain that machine way way down. yes i am. and then im going to let out all the things in my mind on it while i sit in ray of sun on my balcony. fuck yes.
when you slightly freak out on a random woman who is reaching for your friends wallet in her purse while standing in line,
only to find out they are coworkers and its a joke.
