Yes,
I answer. Yes - and true love will never die.
Then I wake up screaming."

Hi. How's it going? I'm Karla.

I don't have anything profound to say.

Me:

25
Scorpio
5'10
ENTJ
Salacious Crumb
Mint Chocolate Chip
Superintendent Chalmers
Periwinkle
Draconian

I'm an English Major at the University of Waterloo. I know that doesn't sound like a miracle, but it is one. Believe me.

I live in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada.

Canada kicks ass.


I'm a slacker.
I can juggle.
I ask a lot of questions.
I solve problems.
I keep everything.

Sometimes I try to explain myself.


I'm afraid of bees.

I am unable to make myself seem cool in my homenode. The reason for this is that I'm not cool. I know a lot of cool people. I'm not one of them. I don't mind. I'm just me. I have a lot of shirts with cows on them. Don't ask.

I keep many lists. It's something I've done since my early teens. I have a list of all the movies I've ever seen, all the books I've ever read, my favourite actors, actresses, people, quotations. Everything is on record. I think that says something about myself, but I've never been sure what.


I have a dead bird story.

Maybe I'll node it one day.

But not today.


"Grief squeezed at her eggshell heart like it might break into a thousand pieces; its contents running like broken promises into the hollow places his love used to fill. How could she know this pain would end? That love, unlike matter or energy, was in endless supply in the universe... A germ which grows from nothingness which cannot be eradicated even from the darkest of hearts. If she had known this (and who could say she would believe it?) she would not have chanced to remain at his sad grave until such an hour so that she might not have to learn the second truth before the first: that to have love was to carry a vessel that could be lost or stolen or worse, spilled blood-red on the ground. And that love was not immutable and could become hate as day becomes night... as life becomes death."

-from The X-Files, Milagro
