‘cause I love that dirty water…

Today has been such a weird day. All I can think about is yesterday. You hear about these crazy violent events on tv or on the news and you can’t believe it… But I never imagined I would actually watch a nationwide tragedy. I’ve never seen a bomb before, as most people haven’t, so to me it looked like a prank. Yeah, it was loud, but it really didn’t seem that big. I was absolutely shocked to find out that so many people were injured and that there were deaths. I don’t know where I’m going with this, I just felt the need to vent about it somewhere. No words can describe how grateful I am that my family and friends are all ok. It’s been a real wake up call. Life is precious and can never be taken for granted.

But yesterday what I noticed, more than the obvious of course, was everyone’s reactions. All of the selfless people who did everything they could to help others. Boston is and always will be an amazing place.

Thank you to everyone who helped us leave the area as soon as possible and reunite with my mom. I am so proud to call Boston my home.




Why are we always waiting for something? Waiting for exams to be over, waiting for summer, waiting for Friday. And when what you’re waiting for finally comes, we don’t even appreciate what we have been waiting for, instead we just wait for something else.

I think subway (if you choose right) is also an exception

Have any of you ever read Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult? If you have you’d know how all-consuming it is. It is absolutely all you can think of, even after you finish. It’s the reason I’m posting this, because I’m right in the middle and I just can’t focus on anything else.

What’s funny is I’ve read it before and it still gets me the same way. It’s so incredibly sad, but you can’t help it. I know it makes me cry… And I like it.

Anyway, I just had to talk about it. It’s the best book I’ve ever read because it pushes you beyond the character’s lives and makes you look at your own. It’s powerful and thought provoking and I’ve never read anything that has made me feel so much.

So, I guess my point is, if you’re looking for something to get lost in, read it. I swear it’ll change you.
