Slow Fade

There was once a little girl. She had lost everything. And she was only in Kindergarten. She sat in the back of the room, while the rest of the kids drew smiley faces on their balloons for the end of the year party. The teacher said, "We are going to use permanent marker, since the colored Crayola ones won't stay as well."

And the young girl raised her hand. "Yes, Rose?" the teacher asked.

"There is no such thing," the girl said quietly.

"As what?" the teacher replied patiently.

"As a permanent marker," she said simply. And the teacher looked at her.

"Honey, this is a Sharpie. It won't come off your balloon like the regular markers." The little girl could've laughed aloud at how naive the teacher was.

"That does not make it permanent," she stated. The teacher paused.

"Yes, but - "

"Then why call it so?"

"I don't know. Some people just want to believe that things will last. Some believe just want to believe that there are permanent things out there, because they couldn't bare to think otherwise."

"Well, then they are foolish," was Rose's answer.

"Maybe they're just hopeful," the teacher contradicted.

"Well, their hope is wasted. Because nothing is forever. Once perfect families fall apart, scars fade, mountains crumble, and one day, not one will remember our existence, or even care. Memories die with us."

The room was silent. And the teacher stared at this pale girl.

She finally said, "Then who am I to tell you to use a Sharpie?"

The girl smiled softly and reached for the blue Crayola marker.

She's right, not everything lasts forever. The best we can do is enjoy it while we have, because one day it WILL be gone. To those who don't believe this or won't, one day the world will come crashing down around you and you'll come back to think on this and i bet you'll say " I understand now" or " I believe now" , because everything this implies is true.

For me, crazy is a loose term. Crazy is when you stare at a pencil and laugh when someone asks you just what you find so interesting about the eraser. Crazy is when you have an hour long sob-fest,

then start singing and dancing when your favorite song plays. Crazy is when you do or say a totally random thing, like "Do you ever wonder where the eraser bits go?" or start having a thumbwar with yourself . So if you're crazy, copy this onto your profile

IF YOUR LIFE WAS A MOVIE, WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK BE?

Saw this, had to do it, it does work pretty well, too!

So, here's how it works:

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)

2. Put it on shuffle

3. Press play

4. For every question, type the song that's playing

5. When you go to a new question, press the next button

6. Don't lie and try to pretend your cool... and alot of the songs fit with the setting
