good words for the new year


.
no matter what – one of my all time favorite songs.

No matter what they tell us, no matter what they do
No matter what they teach us, what we believe is true
No matter what they call us, however they attack
No matter where they take us, we’ll find our own way back

I can’t deny what I believe, I can’t be what I’m not
I know I’ll love forever
I know, no matter what

If only tears were laughter, if only night was day
If only prayers were answered then we would hear God say:
“No matter what they tell you, no matter what they do
No matter what they teach you, what you believe is true”

And I will keep you safe and strong and sheltered from the storm
No matter where it’s barren, a dream is being born
No matter who they follow, no matter where they lead
No matter how they judge us, I’ll be everyone you need.

~ Meat Loaf

bye bye


from the times square newsletter:

Destroy your worries and bad memories of 2013 and start fresh in 2014!

Submit your bad memories, crazy ex-bosses, loathed music, over-exposed celebrities, corrupt politicians, fashion disasters and ill-fated romances – anything from 2013 to which you’d like to say “Good Riddance!”

At the event Cintas awarded an iPad and tickets to the Broadway show Mamma Mia! for the Most Creative entry.

Pearl Chan won for saying Good Riddance to 2012 – the worst year of her life. Chan took care of her chronically ill boyfriend for 2 years only to be dumped and cheated on after he recovered.

i’m entering the contest. . . .  just giving you a heads up so you don’t waste any of your own time as i’m pretty sure i am going to win this one.
