“… I wondered if that was how forgiveness budded, not with the fanfare of epiphany, but with pain gathering its things, packing up, and slipping away unannounced in the middle of the night.”—Kite Runner; I’ve always loved this quote.
Today, we got our class shirts at school. My class's shirt says "2010, the best there's ever been". The junior's shirts say "2010, the be--2010 I'M HAPPY FOR YOU AND I'MMA LET YOU FINISH, BUT 2011 HAS THE BEST SHIRT OF ALL TIME! OF ALL TIME!". I'm failing this year so I can graduate with them. MLIA
But there is, in fact, such thing as a ‘pursuit of happiness.’ And from here on out, that will be my sole purpose in life. To pursue and live a happy life.
Tonight, I had a long talk around a Zippy’s table about life. We talked about getting an apartment together and how PJ is going to move to New York to get his fashion career going. Jina, Elle, and I are all going to stay back in Hawaii and have our own little place where Jina and I would make a total mess of things and Elle will be the one keeping things neat and organized.
It would be full of useless nicknacks, random illustrations/paintings, and good ol’ HK, courtesy of Elle. The entire place would be bright and we’d plant flowers out back and of course, we’d have our own giant, super comfortable couch.
Of course, this is all a little fancy we each have. It’s not like any of it is set in stone. We’re really good at making do with what we are given, improvising, for lack of a better term. We tackle life head on knowing that you can make plans but even plans change.
I don’t know. This is one of the rare moments that I can say I can’t wait to breathe in what life has to give me. Nothing has more promise for me than my future does. Commence the pursuit.
