NaBloPoMo entry #26  
Today was the Iron Bowl.

We lost.

Boo, although I really wasn't expecting us to win. It's annoying being the only Auburn fan in a room full of (2)Alabama fans & a whole bunch of bama bandwagoners though!!!!!!

It's turning into another weekend where I'm not going to feel like i've accomplished anything, I can tell. well, unless you count watching football & Paul Walker movies as accomplishments. i guess they could be... I need to get a life though and stop cyber stalking PW. maybe if i did i could meet someone i found just as interesting as he is... yeah, i doubt it.

So. This evening i found my high school memory box. HOLY CANNOLI! the things that are in there! love letters from my ex (who i talked to today & is coming to Walt Disney World with me & Aislynn in March), mad love letters from a guy who i am still friends with on FB (& is now married to the girl he was with when he was sending all those letters & they have 4 kids. oh & i was with ex when i was getting them), my prom invitation, my Auburn acceptance letter (i had enrolled as a pre-computer science major. what was i planning on doing with that?), birthday cards from my now deceased grandparents, the wedding invitation of my high school friend who had so many complications from child birth a year ago she just had a heart & kidney transplant, notes from my friend who i never talk to anymore thanking me for my friendship...

so now i'm sitting here crying.

why the heck doesn't life go as we planned?

anyway. on a funnier note, i also found my True Love Waits card that Jason (the ex from alabama) & i signed after i'd already taken his virginity. there were a lot of appearances to keep up with in high school, you know.

i also found my ticket stub to my 1st auburn game i ever attended, a ticket for Six Flags in St Louis ($14.97), a friend's obituary, a tag for size medium victoria's secret undies (medium? i wish), the wrist band from my Baby Think It Over we had to carry in high school, a whole bunch of sporting event tickets, hair from someone that i'm sure i was saving & now just grosses me out, an opryland theme park ticket... so much stuff.

funny how it's that old stuff that does me in & not the pictures.

speaking of pictures, why did we feel the need to sit in piles in high school?

oh & i hit the 50,000 mark at NaNoWriMo. yay.

YAY for finishing Nano! GO you!

and *hugs tight* sometimes it's best to have a good cry when thinking of the past. It's amazing looking back to see how different things are from when you thought they'd be. I've actually often thought of things like that - like in 'Sliding Doors' - how one decision might change your entire life. I'm glad it isn't just me who thinks of those things.

WOooot for finishing Nano. I'm so thrilled for you!

I too tend to go on benders when I come across stuff like this. Like Jess above, I think a good cry really helps.
