 Courage is when you're afraid
Courage is when it all seems grey
Courage is when you make a change,
And you keep on living anyway

It suddenly hit me on the train home tonight why I love this song so much. When I first heard it I was so entranced, and thought the lyrics were amazing, but I've never actually consciously paid attention to that last verse. It just hit me that it reminds me that I am much braver than I think I am. Strange when some things get to me. Makes the band's name very apt. 'The Strange Familiar'

I've had a great day today, actually. I met up with a uni friend today for lunch, and we caught up with what's been going on with each other for the past month or so. One thing in particular struck me, and that's how many people from last year aren't going to be in classes/at uni this year. Insane. Especially in terms of string people - it'll certainly be different.

I then headed out to see snuggle_monster's show (again) and it was totally different from last night. So much more together. It was hysterical.
Best part of the night, though, was hanging out with her school-friends. It was seriously like walking back into my friendship group's dynamic at my school. Freaky as all hell.
I met my brain-twin, [livejournal.com profile] sine_animo , and it was insane. Completely. We were hyper, bouncy, and rambling to each other at a million miles a minute and it was so much fun. Even when we were chatting with the whole group, we just kept finding that we would have the same reaction to things, making similar comments and just generally I am 'her' in their group. *shakes head* Down to me looking at her dress and thinking 'oh man that is totally something I'd wear' XD

Madness. Total madness.

One more funny note: another of snuggle_monster's friends came up to me after (we hadn't been introduced) and just said 'Hi! You're Lauren, right?'....
me: 'um, yes, and you are??'
N: 'I'm N...I may have stalked your fb after you commented on that photo *keeps talking*
I just cracked up. Especially when she stops halfway through and goes 'oh that was kind of creepy, wasn't it. oops.'

I need to sleep now, I think. Getting up at a decent time tomorrow to go buy tickets to see Washington in April!!
