how many promises, be honest girl,
how many tears you let hit the floor?
how many bags have you packed,
to take him back, tell me that.
when you're mine in the world,
there'll be one less lonely girl.
im gonna put you first,
ill show you what you're worth.
my life of late has been a string of stresses and troubles that i can't seem to shake. i've had exam pressures piled and piled onto me and i have found that lately i can't seem to take the pace that life is suddenly demanding of me. and then the funniest thing happened, all through reading books i have read before.
Emily: The thing is, I have this problem. Because when I want to talk about my boyfriend to my best friend, I realise they're both you.
i started reading the twilight series over again, and i read bella's account of what she sees in edward (if only a bit exagerrated) and then i found the lack of appreciation of my own boyfriend and i found that if i just stopped and thought about the things he's actually saying to me, and the things that we do for each other without actually realising, i discovered that all the time i tell him he could do this that and the other, he actually gives all that and more and i'm just so stupid. and i am NEVER taking that for granted, because he deserves more than that.
Chris: Do you know what it's like to love someone so much, that you can't see yourself without picturing her? Or what it's like to touch someone, and feel like you've come home? What we had wasn't about showing off what you've got, the way it was for other kids our age. We were, well, meant to be together. Some people spend their whole lives looking for that one person. I was lucky enough to have her all along.
and then i bought the notebook novel and i read songs of the humpback whale by jodi picoult, and watched the pact, after watching the film that makes me spout fountains, and all the things that allie and noah and jane and oliver and emily and chris say to one another, i hear myself and dan say to each other. and all the times i read these books before, i had done what i did when me and dan talked, i had read over the words that he had said to me, and not understood that they meant the same to him as they do to me.
so its up to you,
and its up to me,
and we meet halfway,
on the way back down to earth.
tell me how i could ever be,
tell me this is the for the best,
so why am i in tears?
so we fight through the hurt,
and we cry and we cry,
and we live, and we learn,
and we try and we try,
then its up to you, and its up to me,
and we always meet halfway,
on the way back down to earth.

i suppose im ashamed to admit this. i suppose for the past two years i took for granted what i had always dreamed about having, and i know in my heart i was stupid and so wrong to do so.
Noah: Thats what we do! We fight. You tell me when I'm being an arrogant son of a bitch, and I tell you when your being a pain in the ass. Which you are, 99% of the time. But I'm not afraid to hurt your feelings. You have this two second rebound rate and then you go back to doing the next pain in the ass thing.
Allie: So what, Noah.
Noah: So it's never going to be easy, Allie. Hell, it's gonna be so hard. And we'll have to work at it every single day. But I'm gonna do that because I want you, Allie. I want all of you, forever, every day.
im sorry for posting such a whiney love blog that would drive me up the wall to read. its been a great relief to have my whole life mirrored to me, and i feel a huge weight has been lifted.
Chris: She was all the things I wasn't. And I was all the things she wasn't. She could paint circles around anyone; I couldn't even draw a straight line. She was never into sports; I've always been. Her hand, it fit mine.
i love you dan :)
love me, love me,
say that you love me,
fool me, fool me,
oh how you do me,
kiss me, kiss me,
and say that you miss me,
tell me what i want to hear,
tell me you love me.
