I'll still be out here having fun

American Girl Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Because the Night Patti Smith
Trouble For Me Britney Spears
To Make You Feel My Love Adele

Everybody loves me, baby I'm the king of the night

Lately I have been flying in a million different directions.  I'm not sure where I am going.  I have no clue where I might land.  I've done things.  I've done weird things.  I auditioned for a televised singing competition.  I grew a beard.  I've played more video games that involve guns than I ever have before.  I've done almost no homework.  I've settled in with some new people.  I am changing.

40 Days of 4 Things, Day 18

 I've been having an amazing time lately.  I've suddenly found myself surrounded with amazing new people, which is good because I've been in such a horrible state of mind lately.  And though these new people are great, it makes me realize that without my family I couldn't possibly deal with all of the other ridiculousness in my life.  I love them.

Four reasons my sister is amazing

1.  She frequently puts things in my room to make me laugh.  Tonight when I came home I saw that she had put a framed picture of some of our ugliest relatives on my nightstand.  I nearly peed myself.
2. She does this thing where she talks for our dogs because they themselves are incapable of human speech.  The greatest thing about it is that she believes that all dogs speak with Jersey accents, and horrible grammar.  As far as my sister is concerned she believes that dogs typically say things like "Hey, youse guys!". 
3.  She is the one person that I can ride around in a car with singing Mariah Carey songs and never feel bad about myself afterwards.
4. She understands things about me that no one else ever will.

Four reasons my parents are amazing
1.  My dad does the most amazing Mexican accent.  It also doubles for his black guy accent.
2. My mom once called the Holocaust museum in Washington D.C. as "that Nazi place we visited".
3. My dad frequently asks for my help with house remodeling, or car repair not because he thinks that I'm actually capable of doing any of it, but because he wants to hang out with me.
4. Because my mom's family gave me this amazing hair, and wit.
