new favorite past time

I have been learning to ski,
(slowly but surely)
and i absolutely love it.

Whenever the sky dumps
i love to shred the fresh pow,
dodge the chi's and pep down the slopes,
so bombin'.

great day

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

nothing can bring me down!

wordy wednesday

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 would be perfectly content
if all i were given to eat for a day
(or a week at that matter),
was a bag of cadbury eggs & diet coke.
every easter season
it turns into quite the problem for me.

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'm a big believer that what you think
influences everything you do.
whether it is the way you treat others,
the way you treat yourself,
or what kind of mood you are in.

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.

i will forever and always
love peewee herman.
peewee's playhouse was a favorite of mine
as a child, and
he still never ceases to make me laugh.

road rage

i always feel so awful
when i get mad and frustrated
with the car in front of me,
only to pass them and realize
it's a darling little old person behind the wheel.

the best part of waking up

there is nothing like an ice cold
diet coke
to start my day...
mcdonalds has the best ones.

so dear

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 :)

love is

i absolutely adore this book.
i love charles schulz,
i love how darling the peanuts gang is,
i love how the cartoons
portray the simple things in life,
and i love how this book is
[simply] about love.

i loved so much i just had to blog about them.

happy birthday abby!
