Musings for a Sunday night

Today has been relatively boring, as far as funny stories go. Uh, actually, as far as anything goes.

But, today I have been thinking about stuff I'm grateful for, like sleep.

I'm grateful to have a loving family. Srsly, they rock. Especially my sisters (no offense parents and brothers :P) we all get along now, even though our ages span a purty big gap. And most of my favorite memories have been with these guys (and yes Rebekah, this is you to :D)

I'm grateful for the internet and computers. Because my friends are in it ^_^
also, because I've learned this week that writing fiction by hand isn't the most pleasant thing I've ever done.

I'm grateful for Chocolate. 'Nuff said.

I'm grateful that I have March break for all of next week (March break you ask? yeah, we get a spring break to. I have no idea where March break came from)

I'm grateful for Sunday afternoons. Because only on a Sunday can you get away with an impromptu 3 1/2 hour nap. Yeah, today I got 7 hours of sleep, which is a very decent amount of sleep. But I was still so tired this afternoon, I had to crash. And crash I did. Seriously, the only reason I woke up when I did was my mom woke me up to eat dinner (it being like 8:30.) I would have just kept on sleeping. AND I DON'T EVEN TAKE NAPS! Like, ever! it was weird.

I'm grateful for sunshine. It lifts me up so much, plus it's warm, which I am a sucker for.

I am grateful that my sister is moving to Alaska for the summer. Sure I'm going to miss her like *insert overly used comparison*. Sure I'm going to be bored with out her some times. BUT this gives me a bigger chance to be awesome all by myself. Because whether I like it or not, we're both growing up. And she's going to get married (O_o)
At first when I thought about summer (yeah, I know it's still March. What's your point? I can dream!), I thought it was going to be rather dull, but then I realized that it's not really dull, just less busy. Right now, I sometimes feel as if I'm being pulled this way and that, going to one thing after another. Finishing up that stupid English paper etc. In the summer, I won't have that.
Currently, my plans consist of pounding pavement, and actually getting some abs. Do you know where to buy those? I looked at Wal-mart, but they don't carry them. *cough* joking aside, I recently went with my friend to her track meet, for lack of anything else to do, and I discovered just out of shape I am >_<
And I'll be getting some good writing time in. I'm looking forward to this a lot, because I'm having a hard time getting large chunks of time to devote to it. It's a little bit here, and a little bit there.
I'll also be crafting, which shall be great fun. But other wise, I'm free, which is the best way to bring out creativity.

and I'm grateful for blogging. I've connected with some awesome people in the blogosphere! I love it because it gives an opportunity to become friends with people without distance as a restriction.

And now my friends, I shall spend the next hour browsing the internet, because those who get that much sleep in the after noon, don't get tired till late :P


  1. Going to get married?!? AHHH!!! I don't think so!
    Not for another year at LEAST sweets.
    I'll be going up to Alaska the end of April, and I plan to kidnap you to death as soon as finals are over on the 15th.
    Summer is only like three months and then I'll be back. It's not like I'm dying!

    Also, wednesday I have some ideas for your summer list :)

  2. What a great post! It's good to just sit back sometime and reflect on what is good in your life. I need to do that more. I'm looking forward to seeing the new crafty things you make!

  3. Shiny-My point was that I'm going to need that long to adjust to the idea.

    And wait, Finals are the 15 of March? Or April?

    Also, three months is actually a long time for some of us :P

    Notquiteawake-Yeah, it makes the biggest difference in my life when I focus on the good stuff :D
    Haha, I'm glad someone appreciates my stuff ^_^

  4. Yay for sunday afternoon naps! I had one of those myself!!

    I want to visit Alaska so badly! What is your sister going for?


  5. She's going for a job. The pay up there is much better than here, and there aren't even any jobs here period. So she's going for the summer to save a bunch for collage *nods*

  6. Yeah... adjusting...
    mention it to me and watch me freak out. Seriously, The miss was teasing me in our art history class and I totally started dinosaur/fake fight thwapping her with my arms.
    I relate.

    Finals finish the 15 of april, so I'll hopefully have you for a good two weeks... I don't really know when the air-o-plane will be leaving... oi.

    Three months will fly. You just have to promise not to forget me k?

  7. HAHA! I think we've grown older, not up. *thwaps at you while making elephant noises*

    And forget you? HA! not a chance in this world, or out of it. Not even if Doctor Who asked me to. See? I'm serious about this.
