Take your time and talk to her, it matters not at all / I will give you time enough to know her very well / I am locking down the house, staring at the wall / All I want to do today is sleep like I once could / If you could give me that, that’d be good.
"At least you love me." I say to my pet as I hold them against my chest as they try to get away

I am starting a blog for pictures I take, so feel free to follow or reblog or criticize or whatnot. I got a DSLR for my birthday last week and am starting to learn more about how to take better-than-point-and-shoot pictures.
This particular one was one of my favorites that I took last weekend. Classic Seattle shot from Gasworks.
To keep it simple, it wasn’t making me happy anymore. And I wanted to do other things that the time commitment didn’t allow (such as the rigorous academic schedule that comes with engineering).
Decided to no longer play softball
Joined the marching band
Gotten two tattoos
And essentially changed my major.
…Life is good.
Dear Bridget Raftery,
This week, we not only celebrate the beginning of the 3rd decade of your life, but also our 5 year friendversary.
Kiddo, when we met, you told me you weren’t going to live past your sixteenth birthday. But here we are, and not only have you survived all these years, you have kicked ASS. That is not to say that you haven’t had any struggles. You’ve had SO many obstacles thrown in your path, but you have conquered them all with grace, coming out stronger each time.
I am so proud of the woman you are, and I am so excited to watch you continue to grow and discover yourself. I am so content with the past five years that I’ve spent by your side, going on adventures and learning more about myself. You’re my soul mate, and nothing can change that. God set our trajectories to cross paths very intentionally, and how blessed are we that He did!
Celebrate yourself, not just today, but everyday. Never forget how special and important you are. Happy 20th birthday, best friend.
I love you Zoee.
