My Moment in Song: "Streetcorner Symphony"- Rob Thomas (fave song of all time)
Haha, alright, so I'm a HUGE dork. I was waiting in the Math office to talk to my teacher, and I picked up the book "The Missing Piece" by Shel Silverstein, and I started to cry when I read it!!!! It's the most amazing little book. I wish I would have known that before so I could have asked for it for Christmas/My bday, but I'm afraid it might already be too late.
The book tells the story of this little circle that's missing a piece out of it. And it rolls along thinking that it isn't good enough because of it's missing piece. And on his journey he finds a bunch of pieces, and tries to make them fit, but they're either too big or too small. He comes across this piece that fits him, but the little piece says "I am not a missing piece, I am my own piece," and doesn't want to connect with the circle. So, he continues his quest, singing his little song about how he wants to find his missing piece, and he finally FINALLY finds a piece that's the perfect size and fit, and wants to be one with him. So they connect together, create a whole... and roll away. But the circle then realizes that with this piece filled in, he can't roll as well anymore- and he can't sing anymore either. That he wasn't really missing a piece- that was just the way he was supposed to be. So he detaches from the piece and happily rolls away.
Okay, so I might be looking into this WAYYYYYYYY too much, but I think that is the most beautiful/romantic story ever. We all think that we're missing a piece of ourselves, and try to find it in others... we come across some people who aren't perfect fits, or they just don't want to be with us. And even when we DO find a perfect fit or match, we realize that to connect with them we can no longer be ourselves. We have to give up who we were before.
*sigh* This is what happens when no one pays attention to me!!!! hahahaha.
Bday countdown: 3 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
