call me crazy but after living in 95+ degrees for the past months and being frequently sick while being that hot, it has made me really miss being in snow and cold weather.
can’t wait to feel that cold air bite at my cheeks and fill my lungs.
President Obama addressed sexual assault in the military during a speech to Marines at Camp Pendleton in August.
“No military unit can succeed without discipline, without trust and cohesion,” he said. “So I want you to hear it directly from me, the Commander In Chief: It undermines what this military stands for, and it undermines what the Marine Corps stands for when sexual assault takes place within our units… And that message is coming all the way from the top.”
I know he comes under fire a lot for his decisions regarding controversial issues and a lot of times I may not agree with those choices but reading this today made me thankful, hopeful and proud of our president for addressing this issue. - no matter how brief the conversation.
i’ve finally gotten the hang of writing on paper rather than with a keyboard
which is nice and makes me feel more genuine in the feelings i record
but some days i just wish i could write in the form of pictures and scraps and heaps of sentiments pasted together. to convey that messiness that my words can’t quite get right…
sometimes words do not do justice to the feelings in our hearts
there is nothing to describe that smile or that burning hole in your chest
so much so that you wish you could just paste a photo of it or them to stop your mind from reminding you that you missed another detail or aspect.
