You just take a passion; make it happen.

[What a Feeling~Flashdance]
So, I'm frustrated. I'm sure you all know about my Damon~Emma story, otherwise known as Immortal. So far I'm on my third remake of it, in which I try to make Damon sound like an intelligent 500-year-old, without making it boring. It's not working. But the worst part is, I found the perfect song for this story. Perfect. In. Every. Way. It's Paper Thin Hymn by Anberlin, which is one of my favorite songs EVER, seriously. I was listening to it in the car the other day and it just occurred to me: this is the perfect song for this story. And it is. Seriously, go listen to it.
[Bohemian Rhapsody--Queen]
Have you listened to it? Good. Now you know it's the perfect song. The problem is, I was writing the story, and listening to that song, and I realized they didn't match. How I was writing it. How the story was unfolding. It didn't have any of the sadness, or the loneliness, or the helplessness. I haven't gotten that far into the story yet, but I can already tell that it's just not getting there.

I just took a break to do an air-guitar solo. If you'll excuse me.

In other news, I've officially started The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, which is difficult. Oh, and next week we're starting Jane Eyre in English! Yessssss! I mean, I worry they'll ruin it for me with all their symbolism crap, but STILL. JANE EYRE FTW.

And finally, I REALLY REALLY REALLY wanna go to the mall tomorrow, but so far I haven't been able to get ahold of either Kim or Shari. I need business attire, dammit! And I counted, I have $193 with which to buy it! PEOPLE GET ON FACEBOOK SOMETIME, OKAY? Raghle.
Gooshbye, friends! I'LL SEE YOU ALL TOMORROW KAY!

    The necessity for everything to be a symbol for something else.
