Isn't it wierd?

I am out shopping for my Halloween costume, I know last minute! Anyhow, I just ran into a girl who used to be one of my students at the bcm. She was in leadership my very first year on staff and I met with her weekly.

The wierd thing is that it felt like forever ago, and yet I have memories from middle school and high school that just seem like yesterday. I wonder why some stick so vividly and others don't?

I know it's a pointless and random post, but it's what popped in my mind an I am trying to remin myself to get back on here and blog!! So can any of you relate? Do you have recent memories that you can barely make out and yet ok memories that are crystal clear?

Random mall wonderings

Mr.Pate is working tonight, so I am roaming stores in search of a certain type of coat/jacket that I am only semi-certain exists anymore. This brings me to my point: I am incapable of shopping at Forever21. The proof follows:

1. I have never, not even once, bought something from Forever21.
2. Everytime I walk into that store, I immediantly feel overwhelmed and undercool. There are soooo many options and I do not understand the layout at.all.
3. All of the clothes are so cute that I feel my normal Joe-schmoe life will not do them justice. And they all look so tiny.
4. There are always a million young girls who are pencil thin and painted up perfect in there. Ick.

I could go on and on... But you get the point. Thanks Forever21, I was really in need of a good "don't feel cool at all you dork" type of night. You never disappoint.
