"''Live each day as if it's your last,' that was the conventional advise, but really, who had the energy to do that? What if it rained or you felt a bit glandy? It just wasn't practical. Better by far to simply try and be good and courageous and bold and to make a difference. Not change the world exactly, but the bit around you. Go out there with your passion and your electric typewriter and work hard at ... something. Change lives through art maybe. Cherish your friends, stay true to your principles live passionately and fully and well. Experience new things. Love and be loved, if you ever get the chance."
Yesterday I finished One Day by David Nicholls. I'm still not entirely sure how I felt about the book, but I really felt like I knew the characters. That I liked. And I cried at the end. And this quote pretty much sums up my philosophy on how I want to live my life.
I really like this video from Jean-Luc Goddard's Band of Outsiders. I want to learn that dance. The narration sounds like Amelie.
So it's just about that time (4 days away, when I am really really excited to move back to Austin and into my apartment) that I begin to feel homesick and nostalgic.
