I Made It Through The Night

"And do you know, that everydays the first, of the rest, of, your life"

~Angels On The Moon, Thriving Ivory~

I had a dream the night before last that someone close to me had passed away.  I slept until 3:30 yesterday.  Woke up, and found out my Papa Percy had succumbed to his battle with cancer.
That stings quite a bit.

I am not so much sad, as relieved that he is no longer suffering.  I know that we will all meet again, and I know that he is no longer hurting.  So no, I did not have that rough of a day.  I just sat, chilled, and remembered.  It is scary how dealing with death can come almost naturally anymore.  But I guess that is just a part of my life.

I wanted to let everyone know about this, so that I could not dwell on the negative. Positive things have been happening for me also.

My Aunt, and Mom, and Dad surprised me with an iPod Touch on my sisters birthday.  I think this is the first solid gift I have gotten that had any real value in a few years.  I hid it well, but I almost started to cry. Lol.  I am very happy with it so far.  Though my music alone takes up most of the space, and I don't have the movies that I have downloaded on there. I guess I am going to have to pick and choose what I want on there, and when.

I am going to go now, thinking I am going to hang out downtown, and see some people. I didn't sleep at all last night, I stayed up and watched The Pretender.  I think I'm going to be with Katie for a while.  I hope we go to the movies, I have a free ticket that needs to get used.

Thanks everyone for taking time out of life to read about mine.



  1. Travis, if there's something I have learned over the past year is that it's okay to show emotions. It's okay to be happy over something that may seem silly to others and it's okay to be sad over things that aren't so great. I'm here for you no matter what, k?

  2. I'm really sorry about your grandfather. I'm just glad he isn't in pain any more. And btw, I'm SUPER jealous of you now! lol I REALLY want an ipod touch but the parents said I have to buy it. Which mean I probably wont have it any time soon :'( Oh well!
    all the best wishes,

  3. Sorry to hear about your Papa *hugs*
    And how on earth did you manage to get a gift on your sister's birthday? Man, I struggle to get gifts on my own birthdays... let alone someone elses!

    Take care Mr Travis
