Oh, and here's something that absolutely makes me happy, a poem my sister Amy wrote for my birthday:
Shabby pink blanket worn half awayApparently this took her five minutes of spontaneous writing. She is talented, what can I say?
cutting your own hair before church on Sunday
Emo music like Augustana and the Fray
Surprise changes: quit my job! bleach-blonde hair!
Internet junkie, 99 open tabs, links everywhere
helping me pack, ridiculous photobooth pics, killer interrupted-poem glare
Strong will: no uniforms! no chocolate! no kissing! no nylons!
fiance troubles, blogging away boys, needing long-johns
old-people-lover, working long hours, Obamacons
