Yesterday I spent the day with my dad… We have a good time and saw a lot of things in the rather short time he was out here in Pittsburgh.

First off, we went to the music store and he bought me a new DVD… which I plan on watching in a little bit. Maybe. And he looked for a new Pitt shirt to add to his ever-growing collection. Then we hit up Station Square where I rode the incline and shopped. We then ate a hearty lunch at Hard Rock Cafe and headed to the Waterfront. We looked around the Waterfront for a good while and ended up spending much $$$. He bought me some new clothing and we put together a costume that I clearly am not wearing right now… He also bought me Sims 2; however, I am being made to wait until Christmas for that! Hopefully, I can wait.  He bought me other essentials as well, but nothing worth mentioning.

Then we came back to the university and hung out for a while… It was good just spending time with someone in my family. I could tell he was tired from getting up so early in order to be here so early in the day, so I let him rest for a while. After watching a little TV, we walked down the street to Dave & Andy’s and had some ice cream and then continued to walk around for a while until I had to say goodbye. Goodbye’s are the hardest part for me. I loathe saying goodbye… in any circumstance. It is just amplified by how much I miss my family and how I still long to be a part of their life, though I know it’s not really possible like it was before. I am here, and they are there… that won’t change for quite some time. I need to get over that.

I have spent 90.27% of my day studying for my bio exam on thursday. The remaining time I have done a whole bunch of nothing, including, but not limited to: falling asleep while reading, watching tv specials, talking online, downloading things, talking on the phone, and pretending to ballet dance through the hallway to Handel’s Messiah.  Hopefully, I will do okay on this exam. I need something to help me out right now. I’m beginning to feel like a failure with this whole school deal. We’ll worry about that later!

I hope that everyone is having a great weekend!

Read these lyrics… I’m obsessed with this song!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now maybe
I didn’t mean to treat you bad
But I did it anyway
And now maybe
Some would say your life was sad
But you lived it anyway
And so maybe
Your friends they stand around they watch your crumble
As you falter to the ground
And then someday
Your friends they stand beside as you were flying
Oh you were flying oh so high

But them someday people look at you for what they call their own
They watch you suffer
Yeah they hear you calling home
But then some day we could take our time
To brush the leaves aside so you can reach us
But you left me far behind

Now maybe
I didn’t mean to treat you oh so bad
But I did it anyway
Now maybe some would say you’re left with what you had
But you couldn’t share the pain

No, no, no
Couldn’t share the pain, they watch you suffer

Now maybe I could have made my own mistakes
But I live with what I’ve known
And then maybe we might share in something great
But won’t you look at where we’ve grown
Won’t you look at where we’ve gone
But then someday comes tomorrow holds a sense of what I feel for you in my mind
As you trip the final line
And that cold day when you lost control
Shame you left my life so soon you should have told me
But you left me far behind
Now maybe I didn’t mean to treat you oh so bad
But I did it anyway
Now maybe some would say you’re left with what you had
But you couldn’t share the pain
No, no, no

Oh no
Oh no no no no…
Now maybe I didn’t mean to treat you oh so bad
But I did it anyway
Now maybe some would say you’re left with what you had
But you couldn’t share the pain
I said times have changed your friends
They come and watch you crumble to the ground
They watch you suffer
Yeah, they hold you down
Hold you down
Now maybe brother, maybe love
I didn’t mean to treat you bad
But you left me far behind
Left me far behind
Left me far
Behind
