These words are my diary screaming out loud

And the moral of the story is...

I decided not to go to Philly. It would have just been stupid. Plus none of the girls I knew were going to be able to go, so it wouldnt have been as fun anyways.

Thanksgiving at my parents house was quite nice. I got to relax, eat a lot, watch some football, and spend some time with my family. My aunt's sushi and potstickers were amazing, that was reason enough to go home right there.

Rent was WONDERFUL. It was a little different than the show, but it was still almost dead on when it came to the music and the plot. They always have to change a little bit, but for the most part it was perfect. I wanted to sing along, but I refrained. But once I get that DVD... watch out!

Closing on my house is today. I can hardly wait. Tonight I may not have a bed, but Im sleeping in MY HOUSE! Such a nice feeling.

Its amazing the things you learn while on watch. I stood my first inport deck watch in over a year the other night, and I had the ship's Career counselor standing under me. She has quite a personality, and she was talking a lot, but one thing she said really hit home for me. She was talking about the religious plays that the black churches put on, and how they always have a moral. She talked about one in particular that really hit home, especially after what went on this week. She talked about letting go. It was more in the relationship setting, but the idea was that you can go around holding a grudge and feeling bad and thinking about it, but the person that hurt you sure isnt feeling bad about it, theyre living their life doing whatever theyre going to do, so why bother? Its better just to let it go. And you know what? Shes totally right. So talk away girls. Cuz I dont care anymore.
