I've become one of those people.
You know, the obsessive cleaners. I am quite tired and am all ready for bed, but I just spent the last 20 minutes straightening up my room, putting clothes away, grabbing my school books from downstairs, folding blankets, and neatly folding down the sheets to get all snuggled up for slumber.

Munching on animal crackers in my bed next to an open window that yields the pitter patter of those long awaited raindrops. Frank Sinatra on in the background while designing tickets for a 1930’s boxing match. Mmmm.

A Christian man who takes the lead in sexual purity, and who tells the woman that her heart means more to him than her body, and her purity is more valuable to him than his own pleasure, liberates her from a cruel bondage and gives her a blessing that words can hardly describe. Richard D. Phillips
They made a statue of us, and put it on a mountain top. The tourists come and stare at us. Blow bubbles with their gum. Take photographs for fun. Have fun.
