Favorite Quote:
“The awful thing about life is this: everyone has their reasons.”
- Octave (played by Jean Renoir) in the movie The Rules of the Game


The best night of our lives
they said.
The night you're going to remember
they said.
The beginning of the rest of our lives
they said.
But it's not about what they said...
It's about what they didn't say...
No one warned us of the tears.
That dripped quietly from our eyes.
The tears that gingerly slid
down our powdered faces
and into our mouths.
No one told us how much we would hate the DJ.
When he told us that this was the last dance.
No one told us of the moment...
The moment we would realize...
That this part of our life is ending.
The last chapter in our book...
The chapter we would always want to remember..
Now...and for years to come.
