i'm happy because today has been so great! these are the reasons why:
1) on my way to school i had the best diet coke i've had in awhile...from none other than the always amazing mcdonalds 2) found out that david osmond has a new album coming out on monday! make fun all you want, i don't care i'm still a fan 3) nailed my midterm...i hope 4) fell in love at chipotle (caitlin said there is a chance i could see him again, serendipity?) 5) found a bag of cadbury eggs in my car that i forgot about
I have laid out my blog in such a way that each post is short and centered. I like it this way because I like simplicity. However, sometimes I like to ramble. I don't want to change the pattern of my blog, so I decided that if I ever get the urge to write a more lengthy post; I'll do so on Wednesdays-hence the name "wordy wednesday". This week I have been thinking a lot about time and how I wish I had more of it. I've been overwhelmed by schoolwork and other menial but annoying tasks on my to-do list, and it has got me to thinking; "I will feel so much better when this week is finally over". Despite how great it is to look forward to the weekend, this mindset is all too familiar. My life is not going to get any easier or any less stressful, so I need to stop 'getting through' life, because I will miss out on a lot of amazing things. I need to start embracing one day at a time; even if that day is filled with tasks I am less than thrilled about.
i should probably print this image and hang it on my mirror, or set it as the background of my phone as i suffer through this awful cold (my family could tell you, i've never been one to suffer in silence). to remind myself: it is just a cold. i knew i was jinxing myself when last week i was telling a friend how i have made it through the winter without getting sick once. --- i spoke too soon.
i picked katie up from school today for lunch, and being in the back parking lot of brighton brought back so many memories. i think i love college so much, that i sometimes forget just how great high school was. i had such amazing and funny friends. i dont think a day went by that i didn't laugh to the point of tears.
as i pulled up to my house late last night my stomach dropped. i thought i saw someone standing in front of my house and it freaked me out. then i noticed it was just a deer. i felt bad because i had scared her and she was frozen, looking me straight in the eyes. then it hit me, deer are truly beautiful creatures. this may sound lame, but it took my breath away. i sat in my car for a few minutes and watched until she ran back up the mountain. this short run-in made me appreciate something i never gave second thought to before. moral of the story: deer are dear :)
as i was gettting ready for my daily run, i noticed a hole in my wonder unders. (apparently i should take the word wonder lightly). yes, these are the same pants that just a few days ago, i loved so much i just had to blog about them. :(
