Does love dye?

"You know you love me"
"That depends....
...on the day...

...or the color of your hair"

I'm still learning

Today I learned:
  1. The best way to remove dead skin
  2. Just how dirty my kitchen at Gandolfo's can be
  3. That the ukulele I wanted had already been purchased
Something I need to learn:
  1. How to differentiate the pain between my abs and stomach
  2. How to play the ukulele

Guilty

I never knew

Statistics say that you learn three new things every day.
Today I learned:
1. How sore my body could be.
2. How tired my body could be.
3. How non-fun the combination of tired and soreness is.

When did I grow up?

I remember
When Miss Bee was in college. I went to her dorm and slept over one night. It was less than 5 minutes away from home. I brought a sleeping bag and slept on her floor. I emerged from the sleeping bag and into her kitchen where her friends were. Talking. Laughing. I sang a song. Possibly danced. Typical. And then Bee sent me off to bed so she wouldn't be embarrassed by her goofy little sister.
Now
Fast forward and I'm at Chanelle's house. Almost 2 hours away. And I drove here. Last night I blogged while I sat on her bed. Now I'm on her couch because I'm a big girl and can take care of myself. I've grown up because instead of sending me off to bed while she hangs with her friends, I'm invited along. To go shopping, go see movies, get food. Seriously, when did I grow up?
It's moments like these that I will always cherish. I love my family so much.

Don't all teenagers do this?

I think I'm kinda loosing my mind. And I mean, I've always been just a bit insane but this is different. Ask me how.

"Well Aubrey Noelle how's it different?"
"I don't know."

It's like I'm riding an emotional roller coaster.
Go ahead. Say it.

"Aubs, you're just acting like a goofy teenager girl"

Call me that. Call me whatever you like.
It's hilarious in fact how different. How much it varies.

"Did you know that you're amazing?"
"Sorry, I'm just not as nice or as cool as you. Haven't you noticed?"
"I wish I could be like you more."
"Why can't everyone act the way you do?"
"I see the light of Christ in you."
"You are absolutely gorgeous."
"Words cannot express how much I love you."
But what does the world say? The world that everyone thinks is so important to listen to.
"You're wearing that?"
"You are too fat to fit in here."
"You have to wear make-up and sit up straight."
"You can't be accepted without following our rules and morals"
"Whatever standards or beliefs you have, you can't let others know. Or you will be mocked an ridiculed"

Random example:
My dear sweet friend whom I call Kirkington just messaged me and said:
"Aubrey you are the best ever :D love ya"
Messages like this frequently dance across my internet browser when I'm forgetful and don't close it.
And in those little moments of me finding a surprise message or two,
I have to keep a silent prayer in my heart.
I'm so glad that I spazzed out as I ran to get my phone or grab shoes.
Because after a long day of work, surprise messages are all I need.
Confession:
This post was going to be different. I can't even remember what I was originally going to say. And everything is completely sporadic and random.
But hey, that's how I am.
So take that world.

Jump Rope

A great song. With a great message.

Remember how you used to say
You couldn't wait till tomorrow for a brand new day
no fuss when ya had to ride the bus
You just add a little blush
To paralyze your school crush

Now you're older and the weight is on your shoulder
Make the world a little colder
No more hidin in the old day
Be strong
Don't you give up hope
It will get hard
Life's like a jump rope

Up down
Up down
Up down
Up down yeah
Cause it will get hard
Remember life's like a jump rope

Up down
Up down
Up down
Up down yeah
It will get hard
Cause it will get hard

There'll be a bump and there will be a bruise
There'll be alarms and there will be a snooze
There'll be a path that you will have to choose
There'll be a win and there will be a lose and

You gotta hold your head up high and
Watch all the negative go by
Don't ever be ashamed to cry
You go ahead
Cause life's like a jump rope


Up down
Up down
Up down
Up down yeah
It will get hard
Remember life's like a jump rope

Up down
Up down
Up down
Up down yeah
It will get hard
Come on


I want to tell you that everything will be okay
That everything will eventually turn itself to gold
So keep pushing through it all
Don't follow, lead the way
Don't lose yourself or your hope
Cause life's like a jump rope


Up down
Up down
Up down
Up down yeah

You stomp your feet so hard you make it pound
Raise the bottom to the top
And now we're never coming down

Up down stomp your feet spin around
Clap hands to the rhythm
Then you slip down

You stomp your feet so hard you make it pound
Raise the bottom to the top
And now we're never coming down

Up down
Up down
Up down
Up down yeah
It will get hard
Remember life's like a jump rope

Up down
Up down
Up down
Up down yeah
It will get hard
Cause it will get hard

Up down

Up down
Up down yeah
Life's like a jump rope

Up down

Up down yeah

Whoa oh
Cause life's like a jump rope
