I've asked about you

and they told me things, 
but my mind hasn't changed.

Last night I was lying in bed relishing in the fact that it was Christmas Eve and then in the fact that it was almost New Years, and then my thoughts rested on resolutions. 2011 took a lot away from me and I lost a lot of who I was. I don't know how I could reconcile some of the events of the past year, but I know how I can make sure that 2012 will not be the same. It's kind of lame, but I think that every night this week I'm going to post a resolution. Mostly because it'll give me something to hold myself to.
We all have our nights,

1 - write every day. 

p.s. Childish Gambino's new album was disappointing — Drake's was not.

overdosed on compliments

"Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life."
list of things I wish I could convince myself to do
drive to your apartment
quit my job
take a sick day just to read
go to the club on a Tuesday
spend a Friday night alone
text you without a reason
try and find you
get out of the car at the cemetery
take a walk by myself
call my cousins
admit to you how pissed off I still am
express regret
tell you everything

For all of my straightforwardness, for all of the blunt, inappropriate statements that I have ever made, and there have been many, I cannot make a rash decision to save my life.
I adore you,

say lines and pay fines

hey hi hello,
Things I love too much
singing badly
the cici's salad bar
certain shitty people
dancing around to my iPod
working at a fast food establishment
falling asleep on other people's couches
showing up at other people's houses
old shoes that are falling apart 
shoes that make my feet hurt
staying up until 6 a.m.
community reruns
braided hair

lots of love,

marvin's room.

I appreciate the finer things,
old books,
good sales, 
airplane rides, 
sleeping until noon,
going to sleep at six a.m.,
unrequited love,
friends becoming friends with other friends,
loving my roommate,
long, quiet nights with neighbors,
text messages, 
nice people,
banter in the workplace,
instant gratification.
