I don't bitch and whine if things don't fall in my hands
Because I know how to steal

So I logged into my old live journal and these are the life goals I had set in 2007 and 2008: Go skydiving, Get into an internship at NASA, Join the peacecorps, Sponsor a child who needs help, Learn how to drive a motorcycle, Get my private pilot's license, Get my commercial driver's license, Enlist in the army, Rent a car and drive down to New Mexico, Las Vegas, Arizona, Texas then down to Mexico, See my family in Germany and Albania, Go to a Rammstein concert, Learn how to scuba dive, Technically step foot on all the continents, Become fluent in a language, Ride a camel, Camp in the desert, Get an internship in Cairo or Greece
Study abroad in Humboldt university , Go eurail backpacking through Europe, See Victoria falls, Swim in the dead sea, Go on a holyland trek, Do the whole family thing, Get my bachelor's degree by time I'm 22.

..Wow, I was ambitious. Since this I've accomplished a few: saw Rammstein live, went skydiving, met my family in Albania and Germany, became fluent in German, I *visited* Humboldt but did not study there, did the family thing, and enlisted in the Air force. Looks like I have a lot of things to do once I graduate! (I'll be graduating at 26). It's always so interesting to look back on things you've written several years ago!

I discovered that you are truly lonely when you are with someone but still feel alone. Not when you are literally just by your self.

People say I'm crazy doing what I'm doing
Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin
When I say that I'm o.k., well they look at me kind of strange
Surely you're not happy now you no longer play the game

People say I'm lazy dreaming my life away
Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me
When I tell them that I'm doing fine watching shadows on the wall
Don't you miss the big time boy you're no longer on the ball

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go

Ah, people asking questions lost in confusion
Well I tell them there's no problem, only solutions
Well they shake their heads and they look at me as if I've lost my mind
I tell them there's no hurry I'm just sitting here doing time

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go
I just had to let it go
I just had to let it go

The Japanese haiku poet Basho once wrote, "Old pond / a frog jumps / the sound of water." Try writing some of your own haikus about the little things in your life. A haiku generally consists of a five-syllable line, a seven-syllable line and a second five-syllable line. You can also use any combination of ten-to-fourteen syllables.


Day turns night
Here I stand
Night turns day

Subject: Writer's Block: Ramadan anyone?

Ramadan begins this week. How do you and/or your family celebrate month nine of the Islamic calendar? How are the events of the month important to you?


My family criticizes me for it because they aren't muslim but during this month I chose to participate in the fasting for spiritual cleansing purposes. I started doing this last year when I was in the Air Force and had met an Arabic family celebrating this holiday. The events themselves aren't important to me as it's more of a personal choice and something I'm doing on my own. It helps me clear my mind, it's my way of relating to the people out there less fortunate who don't get the choice to eat, and it's a reminder that I was once in this position myself not too long ago. I feel grateful every day.

Why did you choose your user name? Is there any special meaning or story behind it?
316, March 16th is the date I was released from youth prison and to me it was a new chapter or new beginning in my life, so I used this journal to keep track of the changes I was undergoing mentally, spiritually, and physically to look back on one day. As for ladyghost, I used to be obsessed with the paranormal and still believe I have medium like qualities to a certain extent. If I were to make a name now it would be different, but I just keep this one since everyone already knows it.
