That's a great quote @Jade.

And here are 2 other great quotes, also attributed to Maya Angelou.
"When someone shows you who they are, believe them..the first time."

"I did then, what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better." :)

(I meant to post this on Saint Patrick's Day, of course; but it's a nice sentiment always.)

"There are good ships,
And there are wood ships
The ships that sail the sea;
But the best ships are friendships
And may they always be."

Irish proverb :)

    I have a cousin named Carmen; I'm one of those people where when I hear a name that a family member has it sticks out. There was a kid named Chase in a class I used to teach, and I'm sure I've met others, but he's the only one I can think of off the top of my head.))

    so I live in an area where the name carmen and the name chase are both incredibly common and at one point there was one carmen and one chase in my class. one time we were called in line order in groups of two, so carmen and I were both called. the teacher blanked for a moment because my name is incredibly similar to miranda and teach was like "... Carmen Miranda. I just realized that."))

    I have an Aunt Carmen. There's also Carmen Miranda, Carmen from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and a Wilson Phillips song called Goodbye Carmen. I had a classmate in middle school named Chase, but other than him and Chase Devineaux, never heard of it as a given name.
