words from the wise

“I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect. And it's these things I'd believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn't all she should be. I love her and it is the beginning of everything.” 

― F. Scott Fitzgerald

<><><><><><><><><><>

"i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
                                                I fear
no fate(for you are my fate, my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which
grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
I carry your heart(I carry it in my heart)"

― e.e. cummings

“Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.”

― Robert Frost

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”

― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

oopsie at the oscars

she can makes falling look like an art-form.

jennifer lawrence. god bless her little ole heart. yes she tripped walking up those steps to receive her best actress award at the oscars. and what a graceful trip that was. i have never witnessed such poised and elegant lack of balance in my life. the only thing missing was a knight in shining armor jumping on stage to sweep her up in a grand gesture. how lovely. 

and i also want to point out how funny/cool jen is in these situations. props to you, everdeen!

oh my.... i love you.

unhealthy obsessions

hi all-

i'm laying in bed watching some tv and i couldn't help but notice how unhealthy some of my favorite things are!
first off, i'd like to point out that i'm obsessed with 90's hip hop. sad notion since biggie is somewhere in a grave reminding me these concerts aren't available anymore. now i just draw attention to myself in a large black hummer blaring tupac and then shocking people when they notice its just a teenage sorority chick.
i'm obsessed with romance novels. this is not good. i'm in absolutely no hurry to find the one, but honestly.... how can you expect me to be fine with the single life when you throw these hunky characters in my face.
i'm obsessed with diet coke. i get headaches when i drink it (i need water) and i get headaches when i don't drink it (withdrawals?)
i'm obsessed with duck dynasty. and above all, i'm obsessed with here comes honey boo boo. enough said.
i live for anything historic- be it legends, myths, historical romance novels, articles, movies. and if it has a romantic theme, even better. why is this depressing you may ask? because i'm stuck in this present time period. why could i have not been born in the age of chivalry or southern gents. serious issues.
i'm ending this rambling post with this last unhealthy possession because i am tired and i have to wake up for class tomorrow. i have an unhealthy obsession with... wait for it.... the FBI
what i would give to be able to work for the fbi when i grow up. seriously... i know its out of the questions since you need to go through some sort of academy and whatnot and be able to endure certain physical hardships and i KNOW i cant live through them. but really. the little burst of happiness i get every time i picture myself in my mind with a gun and badge kicking some pretty hard arse and feeling oh so good about myself after. sniff sniff... stowing that plan away for now. good thing law school is in my future plans. that shifts me one step closer to my fbi dream.

sweet dreams.
xx ana

valentines day

hello there, love doves!!

Hope everyone had an AMAZING valentines day. I know I did... I spent it with my absolute favorite people in ftw.
Lunch with Alex (who's real life girlfriend was MIA) was pretty fun - Cheerios & diet coke at the bluu. We actually had an older man tell us we were lucky to have each other and then he asked us how long we had been an item. I proceeded to telling him that we weren't but that I wanted to oh so bad be his girlfriend. (that obviously got alex to chuckle and blush like mad - which made it even funnier). The man then turned to him and said "well, son, at least you know where she stands." That obviously made my day.

He drove me to class in my car (if any of y'all know what I drive - an h2 hummer - then you probably know that's the worst possible idea ever). He couldn't quite figure out the breaking distance from my car to the nearest car/pole/stop sign/pedestrian. We made it safely to class ad I apologize if he did any damage to anyone after dropping me off.
After class I went on a valentines soirée to blue mesa with the gals. It was fun and it was hilarious.
Not much happened after except for me being in bed by like 6 due to feeling sick as a dog. It's fine though... Ill always have next year.

with excessive love,
aia

ps. sorry the pictures are rough, but I feel like they describe our struggling friendship perfectly.

favorite people


kemi - me - maddie - meghan

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

these are my friends. 
i love them like mad. they are so funny and pretty and smart and annoying. 
they keep my grounded when i'm away from home.... like taking my meds, eating my meals, going to class, and doing my homework. i love them and i KNOW they love me (even if i annoy them or if we fight sometimes)

kemi is the sweetest girl ever. she has a huge heart (which sometimes gets in the way of her reasoning). i know i can ALWAYS have her back because she's passionate like that. she's also so beautiful inside and out. the balance is there... even if people don't see it at first. she has the best hair. i tell her this all the time and she thinks i'm so weird. one time i was able to recognize her across campus by just her long blond flowy locks. also, she makes me laugh. a lot. we can be sitting minding our own business and we can just look at each other and just burst into laughter. when we have to go to something serious, we have to sit apart because we know we wont be able to sit quietly if we sit together. 

maddie is literally my soul mate. we have weird heart to hearts all the time (apparently my friend nick knows we're best friends because he witnesses these whispered heart to hearts). we spent maybe 25/8 together and i never get bored. we also share this weird obsession with puppies and miley cyrus. no one gets me like her when it comes to mc...... she cracks me up and she also has a hilarious voice. one day i'll upload a clip of her talking so y'all can see what i mean. 

meghan - aka meggie g - is my biggie big. she is also my mom away from home. like not kidding- i told her "boyfriend" that he was my dad because he was dating her. she is so sarcastic and monotone and i absolutely love it. she is funny and she sets the balance to my eclectic friend group. she always knows whats going on and sometimes i'm scared to ask her because she says i don't pay attention. she always knows what to do or say and i always go to her every. single. time. when i have a problem. she is one of my favorite people and i love her.

skinny love, bon iver



Come on skinny love just last the year
Pour a little salt, we were never here
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

I tell my love to wreck it all
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Right in this moment this order's tall

I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
And I told you to be balanced
And I told you to be kind

In the morning I'll be with you
But it will be a different kind
I'll be holding all the tickets
And you'll be owning all the fines

Come on skinny love what happened here
We suckled on the hope in lite brassieres
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Sullen load is full, so slow on the split

And I told you to be patient
And I told you to be fine
And I told you to be balanced
And I told you to be kind

And now all your love is wasted
And who the hell was I?
I'm breaking at the bridges
And at the end of all your lines

Who will love you?
Who will fight?
Who will fall far behind?
