This Week: Flowers, rants, lyrics, happy moments

 "the flower that blooms in adversity" from my deviantART

♥ This new AWESOME place to eat has opened up in my town, and it has such fresh, vegetarian options.  The atmosphere is really cool (kind of hipsterish and laid back), and they play SUCH good music (Green Day anyone? ;) ).

♥ I've been really aware recently of all the lies the media tells young boys and girls.  It's not like I didn't know it, but TV and music is just saturated with implications like "you have to be half-naked to be beautiful" and "if you boys aren't players and with tons of girls you're not really all that manly".  It just breaks my heart, because it's like everybody takes the life we've been given for granted.  Don't they know beauty is fleeting?  That true love can exist if you wait for the right guy?  That your standards and morals are more important than trying to please people that will never be satisfied?

♥  I was not thrilled with The Mill on the Floss's ending.  My thoughts on THAT will be posted soon in my next review.

♥ I'm so happy that Nela did a guest post for me!  Didn't she look just radiant in pink? :D

♥  Favorite lyrics this week:

"I'm letting myself off the hook for things I've done
I let my past go past
And now I'm having more fun
I'm letting go of the thoughts
That do not make me strong
And I believe this way can be the same for everyone"

Also I'm really liking "How Far We've Come" by Matchbox Twenty.

School is starting back in August!  Eeeeep I'm signed up for General Biology 2, General Psychology, and Expository Writing.  :0

How was your week?
