My grandmother is in the hospital, potentially dying. (Please don't take her. I love you, Nana.)
Another turning point
A fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist
Directs you where to go
So make the best of this test
And don't ask why
It's not a question
But a lesson I learned in time

It's something unpredictable
But in the end it's right
I hope you had the time of your life

So take the photographs
And still frames in your mind
Hang it on a shelf of good health and good time
Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial
For what it's worth
It was worth all the while

It's something unpredictable
But in the end it's right
I hope you had the time of your life

It's something unpredictable
But in the end it's right
I hope you had the time of your life

Two days. twotwotwotwotwotwotwotwotwo. I'm taking my grandmother out to lunch today ... last time I'll see her for awhile. I wouldn't really be surprised if she moved into a retirement community when I'm gone. Then there's my aunt and cousins, one of whom is extremely sad over me leaving.

Wo heissen Sie??? Yeah, now I gotta remember that.

My friend Jenn burned me two CDs and sent me a phone card. All the songs reminded her of me in someway, she said. My friend Britta bought me a photo album and painted dividers, then put different pix from different times under each. The fourth of July. The party. The fireworks. The Hood, LoL. She gave me candy for the plane ride. A cool twine-y bracelet. (I can't remember what the material is really called). Girl Interrupted, the book, cuz it's my favorite movie. And a "Box O' Stars", which has these little oragami stars on the inside where she wrote messages. One says "HawaiianMyke, need I say more?" LoL. My sister gave me an Agatha Christie book - she got me hooked. My mother gave me a guardian "Angel" (it's a cat with a halo) pin and a St. Jude (Saint of the Impossible) necklace. We're not religious but my grandma got nuns to pray for me for my driver's test and everyone prayed to St Jude ... it's this whole thing. My mom did it on hers, too. Anyway, she got medals for everyone so I'll always wear mine and she'll always wear hers .... my aunt gave me these big gold paper clips (for my schoolwork :) and a little tea-candle container, I guess it is, that says Jessica. My grandparents all gave me money.

Aren't words weird??? Isn't it strange how you can just learn so many different words and meanings and be able to put them all on paper in the right order with the right spelling so they make sense???? It's very strange, because there are so many different languages and they seem so hard to learn but yet if we can do it with ours, why not another??? Babies understand by 11 or so months (well, some of them) and we certainly have a higher maturity and comprehension level than them ...

I better go. Take Nana out!


PS: I'll miss you all.
