tumblr time.

Its a pain to post on WordPress… to complicated for my likes. alexmanchan.tumblr.com <–



All in all I learned a lesson from it though
You never get to see it coming
You just get to see it go


Money just changed everything
I wonder how life without it would go
From the concrete who woulda knew a flower could grow


Every time I talk to mom or I hear about your health you make me doubt myself, my decisions. When can I share words with you, mom, without hearing you tremble? I can’t help but conveniently ignore what is difficult.

No one

there is no one righteous, not even one;

there is no one who understands;

there is no one who seeks God.

All have turned away,

they have together become worthless;

there is no one who does good,

not even one.”


The fact that we have nothing to offer makes it so hard for us to receive


I’ve been feeling conflicted quite a bit today. There’s a brewing of regret that comes on strongly but is squelched just as quickly. I miss, but memories push me forward. I’m thankful that its not as hard as I thought it’d be


Its amazing how quiet an empty house is. Especially out in the suburbs. You really don’t hear anything but silence and the clicking of my keyboard.

So I have two pairs of shoes I usually wear to work – one pair I don’t like as much so I wear more often, and a pair that I think are nicer, I wear much less often. The first pair is out in the garage on the shoe rack, the second pair is stored away in a closet. I wore my nicer shoes to work on Thursday. I just put them away tonight. It amazes me how when I pulled them out on Thursday morning the goal was to look a bit nicer for the weekend trip and how when I put them away on Saturday night, every factor is different.

The house is so quiet tonight.

I don’t want to drive to church tomorrow.


There is always a hint of value even in a heap of garbage.

To thine own self be true.
