I haven’t been sleeping, been up studying and too wired on coffee these past couple of nights. I was excited to sleep like a normal person tonight but now I’m just used to being wide awake at this hour. Quiet as fuck. I heard an owl. Fyi I live in front of a forest. Never seen an owl in the forest though. Lots of snakes though. cute, little snakes that slither across the trails so you need to be careful when you jog so that you don’t step on them. p.s. every time I go on a jog in the woods, I check for frogs and salamanders.

okay, i lied. i am tired becauseee what was I talking about?

things that happened today:
woke up at like 5pm
ate french toast for the first time everrrrrr. it was alright.
studied for last final
ate sour candy
wrote a reflection
pitched a photo-essay to an organization and editors emailed me back to discuss the possibility of having my piece published. i hope so. that would be nice.

random thoughts (i seem to be having a lot): the personal journals that i write by hand mostly consists of lists.

Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.

Just because it happened in the past, it does not mean we don’t have to think about it.

…Especially when we are still dealing with its’ issues today. 

Good art provides people with a vocabulary about things they can’t articulate.

Abu Ali, the old Bookseller on Mutanabbi Street died today on April 10th, 2014.

Anyone who sells books for living and offers the world a window to knowledge deserves a little acknowledgement, so please recite Al-fatiha for him.

Tupac died at 25. If Malcolm X died at 25 he would have been a street hustler named Detroit Red. If Martin Luther King died at 25 he would’ve been known as a local baptist preacher. And if I had died at 25 I would’ve been known as a struggling musician. Only a sliver of my life’s potential.

I’m turning 25 in July. I keep thinking I need to “hurry” but I must remember life is a journey. Not a race. I have been blessed with more time on this Earth, I will cherish it each day.

I want to grow one! But I’m not sure if it will survive with the weather we have here in Vancouver.

i want to apologize to all the women i have called beautiful
before i’ve called them intelligent or brave
i am sorry i made it sound as though
something as simple as what you’re born with
is all you have to be proud of
when you have broken mountains with your wit
from now on i will say things like
you are resilient, or you are extraordinary
not because i don’t think you’re beautiful
but because i need you to know
you’re more than that
