chasing shadows


"It's always darkest before the dawn."
-Florence and the Machine

Before I start writing anything, go listen to Florence and the Machine. I'm obsessed with her. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbN0nX61rIs&ob=av3n Go.Do.It.Now. I promise you'll fall in love!

So hey guys. It's been a while, I know. I haven't been very faithful with keeping up this blog. The last post was in what, August?

Merry Christmas, by the way! I hope everyone had a happy holiday.

I'm just jumping all over the place, but go listen to this:

I'm in love...

What's been going on in my life lately? I've just been doing the same old same old, but a big step for me this December was that I got rid of my phone and had my dad change my password for my Facebook so that I've been really isolated from the technology that used to be pretty much my life.

That's really helped me focus on the things above, ha that sounds funny but it's true. I read Einstein by Walter Isaacson and The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, both in the same week - both are really good, I recommend them both! I'm about a third through The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich by William Shirer (I think thats how you spell his last name, ha) , and considering I started it two days ago, I think that's pretty good progress! Ha.

Thanks for reading, just thought I'd drop by and write something, since I haven't for about 2398472398 years!

just amused by my brand new Macbook pro web cam :)

Love, Bekah

I find it awesome that you seem to have discovered a love for Florence at about the same time I have. My mom asked me what I wanted for Christmas this year, and I couldn't think of anything, and then suddenly I said, "Florence. I want Florence and the Machine!" She said, "What?" And I said, "FLORENCE, MOM!" and then proceeded to show her YouTube videos of my latest obsession. Lo and behold, I got "Ceremonials" for Christmas. Hehehe. :)

But yes. Congratulations on your hiatus from social networking! That's hard to do.

P.S. My verification is "supyino", and now I'm sitting here saying, "Wassup, y'know?" in different accents. Happy New Year, name-twin!
