Halloween party & deer on the highway

So last night, we were driving back from our friend's Halloween party at his apt in Emeryville. Three of my friends and I dressed up as the four Zodiac elements - we each represented our own sign's element, so I was water as I am a Pisces. On the way home, I was driving on highway 280 with two of my friends in the car. It was about 5am. At one point, I put the highbeams on because the highway was really dark and there were no other cars on the road. All of a sudden, I saw something up ahead, partly in our lane. It was a deer! I swerved around it, into the other lane. Half an hour later, I was still in shock and thanking God that I was awake and alert enough to swerve around the deer, chillin halfway in our lane on the highway at 5am! We were near woods so probably why the deer was there, but not sure why it was crossing the highway. All I know is that our car would have been totaled, and I don't know what condition the three of us would have been in. I know other people who have hit deer before and their car was totaled. And I am not sure if they were driving the 80mph that I was driving.
I am SO thankful that I am alive! And that our car is in one piece too!!! Phew!!!

song of the moment & how I'm feeling

Jewel "Good Day"

(SHE IS SO AMAZING LIVE! REALLY TALENTED!!!)




I say to myself, as I smile at the wall, just let myself fall

It's gonna be all right, no matter what they say
It's gonna be a good day, just wait and see
It's gonna be OK, cause I'm OK with me
It's gonna be, it's gonna be

As long as we laugh out loud
Laugh like we're mad
Cause this crazy, mixed up beauty is all that we have
Because what's love but an itch we can't scratch, a joke we can't catch
God, but still we laugh

Change

We either adapt to change, or we get left behind. And sometimes, the more things change, the more they stay the same. It hurts to change, but sometimes change can be really good.

Summing up how I am feeling......
Walk On - U2



And if your glass heart should crack,
And for a second you turn back
Oh no, be strong

Walk on, What you got, they can't steal it, No they can't even feel it

Walk on, Stay safe tonight

You're packing a suitcase for a place, None of us has been, A place that has to be believed, To be seen

A singing bird, In an open cage, Who will only fly, Only fly for freedom

Walk on, What you got, They can't deny it, Can't sell it or buy it

And I know it aches, How your heart it breaks, And you can only take so much
Walk on

Leave it behind, you've got to leave it behind

Home
I can't say where it is
But I know I'm going
