Borneo

The speaker in this door is blown so nothing sounds quite right.
Taking my time, taking this drive, waving this town goodbye.
I drive this ocean road and remember the small of your back
and the nape of your neck.
I remember everything as I drive, am waving this town goodbye.
(Dashboard Confessional - So Long, So Long)

We've shared secrets and bad habits. A fair amount of fights and laughs, lessons and wisdoms. We've bid several farewells before this one. We've screamed, we've yelled, we've kicked, punched and sometimes slapped each other with ugly labels. I told him the stories from my childhood, and he watched my life branches out with twigs and leaves, and he embraced them all. Flawed or not. Less or more.

  12. Somehow, this reminds me of my siblings. :) Also, it's been a long time since I've listened to Dashboard Confessionals. I guess I'll spend the night working with them in the background.

  15. Hey there,

    I've just discovered your blog and I'm loving it so far! It's very entertaining :)
    But I have some problems with the layout and I really feel like telling you this, because other than that it is a fantastic blog! If you want I can send you a screenshot and maybe that could be helpful to you? (Btw. I'm using Safari as a browser.)
    Anyways, have a great day :)

    1. Hai Hannah,
      nice to meet you! thank you so much for reading. Yes, actually I'm aware of that. I'm testing the page right now. The design works well with chrome and firefox, but somehow it doesn't work on safari. My sidebar is actually on the left side, but on safari it appears on the right side. In the meantime I'm trying to fix it. Thank you again :) have a great day to you too.
