If what I think is happening, IS happening… It better not be.
We are only here briefly, and while I’m here I want to allow myself joy.
jaoquin phoenix finally wakes up from a 2 day nap. he gets a voicemail from his friend spike jonze. it’s unclear what spike is saying in the voicemail because there’s a bunch of people talking in the background. “i…..have……oscar” the voicemail says. joaquin scratches his head in confusion. he gasps.”who’s oscar?”
Lupita Nyong’o poses in the press room with the award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for “12 Years a Slave” during the 86th Annual Academy Awards
and the oscar for best picture goes to……damn, space jam again?!? 10th year in a row
I never knew what he wanted, and I don’t think he ever knew. He fought so hard for what he’d been taught to want, and when he got it, he just grew more and more confused.

today i found out i wasn’t accepted to my top choice college, and i was extremely upset, mostly because people i consider less competitively smarter (idk how else to phrase it… like i have better grades, a higher class rank, etc) than made it into this school so i feel like i can’t tell anyone without my intelligence being insulted. its not really fair, because this school is in the top 10 engineering programs in america, and all those other people i know got accepted for really easy to get into liberal arts programs and such. not bashing on liberal arts majors, i’m just saying this school doesn’t have a huge one.
anyways, i’m trying to make an unfortunate situation more positive, as i will now be going to my second choice, university of texas at dallas, as a computer engineering major. its a great school, decent location, my best friend of about 14 years will be my suitemate, and i have a great scholarship there. plus, with that scholarship, i can apply for a research grant that would allow for 9 weeks of paid research before the fall semester starts, and would be an amazing opportunity. i’m gonna work extremely hard my first year and try to transfer to my top choice eventually.
so here’s to staying positive!
My girl Holly and I decided to kill ourselves. The same way I did her Daddy. Big decision, you know.
