This Week Ten Years Ago

The Week of 2/19/2006

Witty one liner: Due to recent cutbacks, and until further notice, the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off.

Quote of the week: [It was cut out]

Offbeat oddity (courtesy of the planner): The largest recorded snowflake, 15 inches wide and 8 inches thick, fell in Montana in 1887.

Planner quote: “To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.” – Anatole France


Ahhh, sixteen year old Michelle is back to being snarky and witty. I don’t know if I put this later in the planner, but it reminds me of this witty one liner: Have you noticed that despite the high cost of living it still remains extremely popular? Hahahaha! I am so funny!

Again, I literally cut out the quote for a senior memory book project.

I am a little skeptical about this snowflake business. I also have trouble with the whole every snowflake is completely unique, like fingerprints. It’s not that I doubt they can be unique, it’s more that I want to know HOW THE HELL do you preserve snowflakes in order to look at them. I feel like they meld together when they form snowbanks and they melt as soon as they hit anything warmer than them. So, yes, highly skeptical.

I like this quote and relate to it. If you are not dreaming and believing all you will do is keep your nose to the grindstone and never find anything different. It can be hard to dream, and to believe, but it is the better path. It is also a path that, unfortunately, can be privileged. It is very hard to dream when you do not have basic necessities and are scrambling to feed, clothe, and shelter yourself and your loved ones.
