you look like my first day of summer when the spring is on the run

I don't know what I'd do without you-- I don't know what I'll do about you

yours truly
22 May 1990

as long as we're dreaming, everything's gonna be alright
Bonjour! I'm Carissa; 18 years old and located in Chicago. I want to be a web designer when I "grow up." I'm a big fan of listening to music, drinking coffee, and hanging out with my best friends. The best things in life are laughter, fireworks, and warm weather. I'm a pretty darn easygoing person, so feel free to add me, chat to me, whatever!

"Everybody in the world is a little bit fucked up. And it's okay. When you're young, you think it's just you. You're at home, you're trying to hide it. You think maybe you'll grow out of it, maybe sooner or later you'll get like all the other people. What you don't know when you're young is that it's everybody. Everybody is a little fucked up. So as you get older, you have two kinds of people. You have the fortunate people who realize it early on and let their freak flag fly and they have a good time and they don't think too hard about it and they don't take themselves too seriously. And then there are those poor bastards on the other side who are trying to play it cool. 'I'm not fucked up.'" - Rob Thomas

"We cannot really love anybody with whom we never laugh." - Agnes Repplier

"Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." - Abraham Lincoln

"I have this theory about words. There's a thousand ways to say 'Pass the salt.' It could mean, you know, 'Can I have some salt?' Or it could mean, 'I love you'. It could mean 'I'm very annoyed with you'. Really, the list could go on and on. Words are little bombs, and they have a lot of energy inside them." - Christopher Walken

"The world is a tragedy to those who feel, but a comedy to those who think." - Horace Walpole

everybody's got something that they want to
sing about, laugh about, cry about, it's true--
for me, it's you.
