raindrops

I was a little girl
Alone in my little world
Who dreamed of a little home for me
I played pretend between the trees
And fed my houseguests bark and leaves
And laughed in my pretty bed of green

I had a dream
That I could fly
From the highest swing
I had a dream

Long walks in the dark
Through woods grown behind the park
I asked God who I'm supposed to be
The stars smiled down at me
God answered in silent reverie
I said a prayer and fell asleep

I had a dream
That I could fly
From the highest tree
I had a dream

My dearest friend Amanda already wrote a post with this song, but I just have to steal it and post with it too.

I feel like I have so many things to say, but I don't know how to phrase any of them. Right now it sounds like
stay in San Francisco forever, Berkeley, grad school, PhD? don't want to be lonely in California? fluorescent nano diamonds, don't pigeonhole yourself, industry v. academia, Y Chem, dreams dreams dreams

Makes sense, yeah?
Nope. But that's okay because I've got to finish a French take home test that was due yesterday (ah, what a candidate I am for grad school. goodness).

We'll talk later, okay blogging buddies?
Hope your weeks have been grand!

this song has actually inspired some of my favorite personal essays. It's good stuff.

Also...you'll figure it out. It may seem like there's no time, but there always is.

oh yeah, that song is always good when you're feeling down...or up...it's really good. I just love that bolded line. I feel like that too. I'm sorry about all the questions, but I know oyu'll get it. I'm still jealous you're in sf. or were. :) I finished your birthday present!
