A Collection of City Thoughts

Monday, November 9, 2009

some things i cannot change:

I will always cut you off if walking beside you. It's not that I have poor alignment. I just like being close to you and so I gravitate to your strides.

I will always be a little clumsy and spill drinks on your lap. It's not that I am uncoordinated. I just get lost in thoughts, images, and conversations. They are more interesting than the reality of objects in space.

I will never be the girl who wears dresses and pretty things. I am not sure why this is. I've tried. It feels awkward and laboured.

I will always be the kind of girl who wishes she were a little thinner.

I will always be a little happier if the sun is out.

I will always be a little too critical for my own good.

I will always like you a little more if you're a Woody Allen fan.

I will never tell you I agree with you if I don't. Even if it hurts your feelings.

I will always, despite the discrimination, favour artists over business men.

I will never be a good cook. It's not that I don't know how to cook. I just don't get joy out of the process.

I will always firmly believe that less is more.

I will always prefer walking to running.

I will always prefer dancing to walking.
