Me…. You….. Us.

There is that magical moment

That happens once in a lifetime

LIke two stars colliding in the sky…

I think I tasted magic from heaven

Right from the day I first set eyes on you.

You were everything everyone else wasn’t

And my mind saw embodied near-perfection

I wished I could get to you

To touch you – or the hem of your garment –

To see if you are really human –

Then I would go home content

if nothing really transpired.

However, or though, I hoped

that more would come to pass

That we would exchange numbers

And become good good friends

Then I would be happy – or glad.

But still, I dared to hope

That you and I would forever be

Friends, companions – and complements

That we – you and I – would hopefully

Raise our lives together

That our – yours and mine – children

Would grow surrounded

With love and care from us – daddy and mommy

That we – you and I – would learn to grow

Old – and age

gracefully, together

Sitting on a porch – the one we built together

Looking back and…

reading this

Smiling and appreciating the audacity of hope

But – alas! My heart grieves

Because I know, fully well – I know –

That inasmuch as I feel all this for you,

Although I know so little of you –

You, most probably, know –

not of my affection nor knowledge of you –

nothing of my existence.

Stress Diet


With exams around the corner, I have found this diet to be really great in helping me manage stress and boost my concentration… You have to try it!


1/2 grapefruit

1 slice whole wheat bread

8 oz. skim milk



4 oz. lean broiled chicken

1 c. steamed zucchini

1 Oreo cookie

Herb tea



Remainder of Oreo package

1 qt. Rocky Road ice cream

1 jar hot fudge



2 loaves garlic bread

Large pepperoni pizza

2 Milky Way candy bars

Whole frozen cheesecake, eaten directly from freezer


Helpful Hints:

  • If no one sees you eat it, it has no calories.
  • If you drink a diet soda with a candy bar, they cancel each other out.
  • When eating with someone else, there is no need to count calories if you both eat the same amount.
  • Food taken for medicinal purposes, such as hot chocolate, toast, and Sara Lee cheesecake, never counts.
  • If you fatten up those around you, you will look thinner.
