Happy Birthday Teddy Bear!! :D
hi. where did you hear about the mumfords moving to the us?
In an Interview with Ted Dwane for Rolling Stone magazine on August 8, 2012, about “Babel,” the interviewer asked where they all are living, and he said London. Then the interviewer asked if they moved would they all move together, and Ted said that yes they would because as a band it wouldn’t be a good thing for them to live in different places. The last question the interviewer asked was would they consider moving to the US, and Ted said “potentially.” So I didn’t say that they definitely are, I just said that they might. I think it’d be awesome if they did! :)
Oh my god I want this outfit.
Someday I want a big happy family just like theirs.
Those of you who have strong and wonderful families, cherish them twice over, once for yourselves, and once for me.
I have always been jealous of people who have great families and I never really knew why, but it hit me full force tonight. In the past whenever someone would say they couldn’t hang out because they had to do something with their families I’d always be pissed off. I never really saw the benefit of “family time.” The reason for all of this is because I don’t really have a family-at least not a functional one. My sister on my dad’s side passed in 2001, my uncle passed shortly after, and, lastly, my dad passed in 2006. I never knew any of my grandparents on either side. All of my father’s side is pretty much wiped out except for my half-sister and half-brother, neither of which I want anything to do with because of what they did after my dad passed. Then, to put it simply, everyone on my mother’s side is insane. Every, single, one. I have two cousins who are very good people, but I don’t think they want to know me because they expect me to be crazy like my mother.
So, to be honest, the only family I had is no longer here. I wish that I had a loving and strong family to look forward to seeing, but I don’t. Therefore I have decided my friends are my family. This is also why I pretty much fall in love with people I am very drawn to. It’s almost as if I’m trying to make up for the shitty lot I have been given. I love those who have inspired me, (aka Mumford & Sons, Andy Dufresne, Emerson, Larry Moss, etc.), my father, and my friends. And I don’t give a fuck if any of you have a problem with that.
I’m currently watching While You Were Sleeping with Sandra Bullock, Bill Pullman, and Peter Gallagher. It’s interesting how much my life parallels Sandra Bullock’s character, Lucy. She doesn’t have family, her father passed away when she was young, and she’s a hopeless romantic. She falls for a man she doesn’t even know, (sound familiar?), and expects that things will work happily ever after for the two of them later down the line. That’s where I am now. What actually ends up happening is she meets his family because they misinterpret that she is his fiance, and falls in love with his brother instead. I hope something like that could come along for me too. Not the being misinterpreted as a fiance part, but becoming part of a wonderful, loving family, and meeting someone wonderful without planning to do so.
That would be nice. :)
