So since what I last posted today was to happy and so forth. I've been listening to some of my dad's favorite songs and I found this poem that my friend gave me when dad died. I really liked it so I thought I would post it in case someone else might like it too.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow;
I am the diamond glints in snow;
I am the sunlight on ripened grain;
I am the gentle autumn rain.
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight;
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry:
I am not there. I did not die.

So I think that it has been even longer since I have posted anything (I seem to say that a lot). To tell the truth I have been a bit depressed. This last semester has been the hardest so far, but I made it through and passed all of my classes. Woot! I have a class that I am really not looking forward to this semester but sigh what can I say. You do what you gotta do.

Ok so its been a while since I have posted anything. I started this semester with 19 credits. One Bio class, one class in Osteology, two higher German classes, Intercultural communications and a Managing Information Systems class. My ostio class requires about 7hr in the lab per week so I dropped one of my German classes that was kicking my butt. It was German lit and we were reading Old German the equivalent of Old English only in German ;-) Having done this I think I can make it through this semester. Before I had to miss classes so that I could get all of my home work done (not a good thing) and I still didn't get it all done.
Right now I am listening to America's Greatest Hits and thinking about my dad. Half of these songs I heard on the radio while we were working in the shop together. I remember one time he was throwing a pot and The Sandman came on and I realized that it followed the exact beat of the kick wheel and the flow of the clay while dad was using it. Its kind of crazy to be so sad and so happy at the same time lol. I still have to say that not being able to talk to my dad hurts like heck. I've learned so much already this semester and he's not here to tell. I also found a crazy kind of fungus growing in my fountain at home and I would like to know what kind it is before I Clorox it but dad's not here to ask. I still can't believe my dad is gone even though it has been so long. I still say goodbye to dad every time I leave for school. Its kind of an odd thing but it just feels wrong to not say goodbye to him.
On a (Less depressing) side note I have dyed my hair three times since my last post. I went from my natural red hair to black with orange streaks to black with red streaks and now I am currently sporting a chocolate brown. I have no idea why anyone would really care but this shows how random my mental proses has been.
Also I broke out the window in my apartment. It was an accident. I got locked out... well I couldn't find my keys. I had just gone shopping and my keys were no longer with me. You see the sliding part of the window can be moved a little so I thought I could break into my own apartment but... ummm.... it was a very good design and the window flexed and crash! Glass everywhere. The sucky thing was I was still locked out of my apartment. So I went to the office of the people who run the apartment and pulled into a parking stall, got out of my car and found my keys laying right next to my door. (I can't make this stuff up). So in the end I found my keys and I have to $130 to replace my window but I currently have a patch job and glass all over my floor (this happened the 3rd of Sep) and I still forgot to bring my vacuum up. So there you have it, my first few weeks at school this semester. Ah yes, some weeks just make you wanna scream ;-)
(If this post makes absolutely no sense to anyone I blame either my totally overloaded schedule of the last few weeks or America's Greatest Hits that reminded me of dad :-D)

This is a poem that I wrote in memory of my dad who I miss and love so much. It doesn't say everything I would like to say but there are some things that the English language is not capable of. It is just crazy to me how we can use words everyday but still never truly say what we feel or mean.
