My old friend, I recall
The times we had hanging on my wall
I wouldn't trade them for gold
Cause they laugh and they cry me
Somehow sanctify me
They're woven in the stories I have told
And tell again

My old friend, I apologize
For the years that have passed
Since the last time you and I
Dusted off those memories
But the running and the races
The people and the places
There's always somewhere else I had to be
Time gets thin, my old friend

Don't know why, don't know why
Don't know why, don't know why

My old friend, this song's for you
Cause a few simple verses
Was the least that I could do
To tell the world that you were here
Cause the love and the laughter
Will live on long after
All of the sadness and the tears
We'll meet again, my old friend

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye

My old friend, my old friend
Goodbye, goodbye

So I was mistaken...
I guess I have another entry....

She put him out like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette
She broke his heart he spent his whole life tryin' to forget
We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind
Until the night...
He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away her memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength he had to get up off his knees
We found him with his face down in the pillow
With a note that said I'll love her till I die
And when we buried him beneath the willow
The angels sang a whiskey lullaby

Not that anyone posts on this (the reason I stopped allowing comments)
If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, even if we don't speak often, please post a comment with a memory of you and me. It can be anything you want, either good or bad.

When you're finished, post this little paragraph on your blog and be surprised (or mortified) about what people remember about you.

Lose-Lose Situation
I can't win! There is a girl that means more to me than I can describe. I love her with every fiber of my being but, she doesn't feel the same way towards me. Knowing that causes me to have lots of issues as one part of me wants to believe there is hope, but another part of me knows there never was or ever will be any hope in that area. It has now been 3 weeks since I have talked with her, not to mention hanging out with her. I don't have the "internal conflict" anymore but it isn't helping my depression any. As a matter of fact, I haven't been sleeping much the past several days. I haven't been able to get to sleep before 3 am in who knows how long. Last night I got to sleep around 5 and got up this morning at 7. I wish there was something I could do to "win" this battle over mental issues, but the only 2 things I can think of either will never happen or no one else wants to happen.

Well I went down to my local arena.
I asked to see the manager man.
He came from his office and said, "Son can I help you?"
I looked at him and said, "Yes you can."

'Cause I wanna drive the zamboni.
I wanna drive the zamboni.
(Yes I do.)

Since I was young it's been my dream
to drive that there zamboni machine.
I'd get that ice just as slick as could be,
and all the kids would look up to me.

'Cause I wanna drive the zamboni.
I wanna drive the zamboni.
(Yes I do.)

The manager said, "Son, I know it looks keen,
but that right there is one expensive machine.
And we've got Smokey who's been driving for years."
About that time, I broke down in tears.

'Cause I wanna drive the zamboni.
I wanna drive the zamboni.
'Cause I wanna drive the zamboni.
I wanna drive the zamboni.
(Yes I do.)

Well, I left the game after the second period.
First period scores: 1-3 Niagra 15 shots on goal for UAH, 5 for Niagra
Second period we actually went a whole penalty without Niagra scoring on us. Second period scores: 1-4 Niagra 21 shots on goal UAH, and again 5 for Niagra.
That is when I left.

Time Well Wasted
When I get where I'm going
On the far side of the sky
The first thing that I'm gonna do
Is spread my wings and fly

I'm gonna land beside a lion
And run my fingers through his mane
Or I might find out what it's like
To ride a drop of rain

Yeah when I get where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah when I get where I'm going
Don't cry for me down here

I'm gonna walk with my grand daddy
And he'll match me step for step
And I'll tell him how I missed him
Every minute since he left
Then I'll hug his neck

Yeah when I get where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah when I get where I'm going
Don't cry for me down here

So much pain and so much darkness
In this world we stumble through
All these questions I can't answer
So much work to do

But when I get where I'm going
And I see my maker's face
I'll stand forever in the light
Of his amazing grace
Yeah when I get where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
I will love and have no fear
When I get where I'm going
Yeah when I get where I'm going

You got to leave me now, you got to go alone
You got to chase a dream, one that's all your own
Before it slips away
When you're flyin' high, take my heart along
I'll be the harmony to every lonely song
That you learn to play

When you're soarin' through the air
I'll be your solid ground
Take every chance you dare
I'll still be there
When you come back down
When you come back down

I'll keep lookin' up, awaitin' your return
My greatest fear will be that you will crash and burn
And I won't feel your fire
I'll be the other hand that always holds the line
Connectin' in between your sweet heart and mine
I'm strung out on that wire

And I'll be on the other end, To hear you when you call
Angel, you were born to fly, If you get too high
I'll catch you when you fall
I'll catch you when you fall

Your memory's the sunshine every new day brings
I know the sky is calling
Angel, let me help you with your wings

When you're soarin' through the air
I'll be your solid ground
Take every chance you dare

I'll still be there
When you come back down
Take every chance you dare,
I'll still be there
When you come back down
When you come back down

Best Friends
I've had 3 "best friends" over my almost 24 years. No matter how close you are to someone, when one (or both) of you moves away it is inevitable that you will lose touch and forget. My first best friend became so back in preschool and we hung out ALL the timewe were at one of our houses 4 or 5 days a week at the least. We stayed best friends untill middle school when we both moved. I found him on facebook the other day and that was pretty much our first contact since middle school. When we talked, he had no idea who I was, though that isn't surprising since we haven't talked in so long.

My Second best friend I met in middle school. We also worked together at the Cumberland Science Museum. We stayed best friends untill High School graduation. we still talked on occasion while he was at Vandy, and I even went to see him a couple of times. Now he has graduated from Vandy and is living in Washington, D.C. and I never really get to talk to him at all.

My third best friend I met at the begining of last school year. I love being able to spend time with her, but, especially this year, she is getting busier with work and clubs and graduation coming up. She has recieved a AWESOME job offer in a city that is very far from here. I know that when she takes it (and there isn't one reason I can think of why she shouldn't take it, it is that good) and moves off I won't talk to her again and I'll end up as, at best, a dusty memory that crops up from time to time. Oh sure, we will call each other from time to time at first, and maybe even send a few letter to eachother saying how much we miss the other, but after a few months the letters and phone calls will slowly be fewer and farther between, until they stop alltogether.

Current Mood: depressed

Oh that I might have my request; and that God would grant me the thing that I long for!
Even that it would please God to destroy me; that he would let loose his hand, and cut me off!
Then should I yet have comfort; yea, I would harden myself in sorrow: let him not spare; for I have not concealed the words of the Holy One.
What is my strength, that I should hope? and what is mine end, that I should prolong my life?
Is my strength the strength of stones? or is my flesh of brass?
Is not my help in me? and is wisdom driven quite from me?
To him that is afflicted pity should be shewed from his friend; but he forsaketh the fear of the Almighty.
My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook, and as the stream of brooks they pass away;

"There is no safe investment. To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly be broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket - safe, dark, motionless, airless - it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The alternative to tragedy, or at least the risk of tragedy, is damnation. The only place outside Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers and perturbations of love is Hell."
— C. S. Lewis

When you come to the end of everything you know, and the next step is into the depths of darkness of the great unknown, you must believe one of two things: Either you will step out onto firm ground, or you will be taught to fly.

Who I want to be....
The following comes from a friends AIM Profile:

Wait for the boy who pursues you, the one who will make an ordinary moment seem magical, the kind of boy who brings out the best in you and makes you want to be a better person.Wait for the boy who will be your best friend, the person who will drop everything to be with you at any time of the day no matter what the circumstances. Wait for the boy who brings you closer to Christ instead of further away. Wait for the boy who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats and have no makeup on. Most of all, wait for the boy who will put you at the center of the universe, because obviously, he'd be at the center of yours.

I want to be that boy.

Camp Cosby
This weekend was our bi-annual Camp Cosby trip. Against my better judgment, I went. I had a really hard time this weekend.

Special thanks to Karen, Frank, and David (you all know why). Very special thanks (and my sincerest apologies) go out to my best friend, Ash (again, you know why), Thank You so much.

I don't care any more
Now to be quite vague...

There is something I have felt very strongly about for almost a year and a half now. Recent developments (and lack of development) have caused me not to care anymore. I ask questions about this particular issue, but the one person that wouold know the answer keeps ignoring my questions. On the rare occasion they don't ignore my questions they end up avoiding the issue or not being entirely forthcoming with their answers. I can't take it anymore. I wish is could be diffrent but I guess it can't. So the only thing I can see to do is quit careing. It is a hard thing to do, but it is the only way I see of preserving what little sanity I have left.
