Support your friend’s dreams. If they fail, you still supported them. If they succeed, you always believed in them. Otherwise, even when they succeed, it won’t feel like a victory that can be shared with you. And if they fail, they’ll feel like they disappointed you most. Support dreams, because there’s already so little passion in the world and so few of us go for the life we always wanted.

My life is a sitcom (a.k.a., I’m ridiculous most of the time and last night was a banner night), let’s recap shall we:
started off by randomly interjecting myself in the conversation of some kids to properly educate them about what “real grunge” was in the early 90s, because you can’t chalk that up to a fashion choice on my watch;
got so excited during a Jackson 5 song that I flailed while dancing and knocked a really large drink off the table and all over Andrea, Jessica and myself;
relived the glory that was “I Wanna Sex You Up” (thank you, Color Me Badd); 
a glow stick was thrown at my face, landing dangerously close to my eye but crisis averted it only got stuck in my hair; 
saw the video for “Beauty and the Beat” for the first time ever, and sat with a completely bewildered look on my face because WHAT EVEN?; 
the impromptu sleepover that almost was with Ashley, but her parting gifts were a huge stack of nail polish and a lamp base in lieu of actual sleep when she was finally able to wake her husband up to collect her at 2AM.
Welcome to the big bag of weird that is a solid Friday night.

Music Tag

I was tagged by the awesome slothpaws - thanks, lovely Ollie! I took your cue and included links to most of the songs, click the title to listen to them. This is the second time I’ve done this tag (first time was a while back) and very different results - the magic of the shuffle!

I’m goofily excited - whatever block (both time and inspiration) I struggled through to get Ch2 of The Roundabout finished has PASSED. I’m already 3K words into writing Ch3 and should have it finished/posted before the weekend is over. All of this to say…I’m BACK! and it feels so nice to be getting all these creative thoughts out. 

I was tagged by teastaindiary - thank you, my dear!

Rules: Why so serious 
Always post the rules, answer the questions the person who tagged you wrote, write 11 new questions, tag 11 new people, and tell them you’ve tagged them.
@ me so I can see your answer

Get ready for some random information about me with no particular rhyme, but all of Étaín’s reason (which I adore). Without further ado…
