    I Have Survived!
    At first I was afraid, I was petrified
    Kept thinkin' I could never get through seeing so many brides
    But then I spent so many nights
    Dressed up and drinking beer
    And now I cheer
    Because I'm finally back here

    And so I'm back, no more weddings
    I can finally stop spending money and looking at wedding rings
    I had more fun than I thought I would
    I had more to eat than I probably should
    But in the end I made it through better than I ever thought I could

    My family's great, my friends are too
    But you have no idea
    Just how hard it was all to do
    No money and no sleep almost got the best of me
    I thought I'd crumble
    I thought I'd lay down and die
    Oh no not I
    I have survived
    As soon as I walked in the door I knew I had arrived
    Sure my kitten's mad at me
    And my apartment needs a clean
    But I survived
    I have survived
    Hey Hey!

    It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
    Just trying hard to caffeinate my brain enough to start
    And I spent oh so many nights in places that weren't my home
    I didn't cry, and for that I hold my head up high
    And you see me, still half asleep
    Still wondering how my voice is raised above a feeble peep
    And so you felt like dropping in to see how well I made it through
    But all you found is this lame song, in an attempt to entertain you

    My family's great, my friends are too
    But you have no idea
    Just how hard it was all to do
    No money and no sleep almost got the best of me
    I thought I'd crumble
    I thought I'd lay down and die
    Oh no not I
    I have survived
    As soon as I walked in the door I knew I had arrived
    Sure my kitten's mad at me
    And my apartment needs a clean
    But I survived
    I have survived
    Hey Hey!

      becki: thanks, it totally doesn't fit in some places, but eh, I'm tired!

      esther: yeah we do, unfortunately, all I can think about is sleep right now.

      mikey: I figured as much. What's funny is I didn't read your blog until after I posted this. what are the chances?
