I heart fall.

I watched Garden State tonight. Just got it in the mail today. Why have I not bought it before now? I don't really know. It's just such a real movie, I know that's an oxymoron...Anyway, it was set in the fall and it's kinda finally fall here in Nashvegas and it's such an amazing time of year. It always seems to coincide with me going through a changing period for some reason. It's something about the heat fading away and the coolness moving in. I don't know and as much as it sometimes sucks because it's rainy and bleary, it's still so cool because the colors against the grey sky are so warm and reassuring. It's beautiful. Please stick around a long time this year, fall. Please.

I don't want to be somebody's learning experience.

I bought the Best of the Waitresses today. What a great band that people really need to rediscover, like me. It's awesome. This is a quote from one of their songs. It seems to be exactly how I'm feeling these days. We all learn from each other, but the way this is worded makes it ring so true...a person, a heart, shouldn't have to be someone else's chance to learn something. I feel like I was someone's learning experience, but they maybe haven't even learned anything from it yet. How sad is that? If I'm gonna go through all this, I hope they at least become a better person from it. I know I've learned from this, but I didn't use anyone in the process. I'm not doing a good job of explaining myself, but just remember the quote and think about it and post what you will in the comments section. I'd appreciate elaborations on this topic. It interests me. Happy October by the way.
