i took a quiz in oprah magazine that said i was a super optimist, but i'm not sure that's always true...when i sat down to write this blog, the first things i thought about were all the things that i didn't do today or that went poorly. however, i'm trying to make good on oprah's diagnosis (well, make it consistent) so i decided that i would just list all the things i did do or liked about today. here goes...

i had blueberry muffins frosted mini wheats with almond milk for breakfast. delish. i went to the dentist for the first time in almost two years. my teeth are slick and shiny. i'm also pretty sure they're whiter. i got to wear my polka dotted rain boots. i used them to step in an ankle deep puddle - take that rain! i had delish lunch with the lovely alana nelson at yo burrito. salsa bar, please & thank you. i saw my old youth pastor! my hair stylist texted me to tell me she wanted to gloss my hair for free. i cleaned my living room and did all of my dishes. i also made egg salad - with hummus and spicy mustard and egg whites. then i drank three cups of coffee and ate a pudding pop. i got new cute new city flats in the mail today. and a twenty percent off coupon at ulta. i went to kinetic (small group) and connected - sometimes i really don't want to go bc i'm anti-social or too busy, but it's a small step to take compared to all that has been afforded to me through my beliefs. i remembered how much i love florence + the machine.

also, today someone told me they thought i was much happier at my new job despite the financial ramifications on my life. then, as we discussed jobs and work/life balance, we threw around some potential career paths for myself. [note: i love my current job and do not plan on leaving it anytime soon and cannot wait to see where my career goes within the company.] so anyway, she thinks i should be a blogger. really? can you make money doing that? yes. yes you can, but i don't think i would be able to wrangle any benefits out of the deal. (this is the part that requires me to have a husband who has a good, solid job...) also, i would blog from my macbook pro in coffee shops. best.job.ever. sign me up.

one last topic... why do they say 70% chance of rain instead of 30% chance of sunshine? this was a real conversation topic at work the other day. think about it.

ummm. that might be all. and by all, i mean, oh boy! what a day! i'm so glad i got to experience it.

good night & good luck. xo.

The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment, wisely and earnestly. (Buddha)
i let a coworker give me a tattoo today. boom. winning.

do any of you read the post secret blog?

i'm sure you do.

i haven't read it in awhile, so i just did some catching up on google reader.

some of the secrets make me cry. some of the secrets make me laugh. some of the secrets sort of freak me out.

occasionally, i think one of the secrets could be directed at me. or that maybe i wrote one of them and sent it in without remembering.

then i wonder if anyone i know has ever written to post secret at all.

after that, i just hope that if writing to post secret doesn't make people feel better, then they find away to tell their secret for real. and that it's not as bad as they think it is. or that they get the help that they need.

it's a lot of thinking/emotion from one blog.

today someone asked me what the best part was about living alone...

i told them that i don't have to put pants on to make coffee in the morning.
you just roll right out of bed and into the kitchen to the coffee maker. nbd.

ok. so that might not be the best part, but it is pretty awesome. don't you think?

my last post was my 1000th post. it was sort of anticlimactic don't you think?

so on to the next one...

monday my macbook pro was in china. yesterday it was in memphis. today...?

i hope it's in my hands!

last night i worked 7pm-3am. whoa. i'm not sure visuals is my jam, but i did learn a lot. i sort of just followed matt around and tried to act helpful. lucky for me, he seems to have infinite patience. unlucky for him, i ask a lot of questions and lose my pep around one in the morning.

i had six shots of espresso and an iced pour over coffee yesterday. too much?

yesterday, someone said i didn't seem excited about life - i guess i don't have too much going on right now. which is NOT TRUE because i have SO much going on right now. i guess i better get excited.

oh alright. time for work. EXCITED FACE. ps. ipad two on friday! asldkfakdfj!

i think i'm going to buy a new computer this week. that's pretty sweet.

i've been trying new beer. i don't like mojo ipa. i do like fat tire amber ale.

today, i made fudgey pumpkin brownies. and homemade peanut butter.

yesterday, i had a great day at work.

a customer asked me out. that part was a little awkward.

i think i'm a bad dater. or maybe i don't know what i'm looking for...

i have been in love though. i know what that feels like.

i just watched love & other drugs. it made me a little teary.

heyyy. i want to get my nose pierced. thoughts?

anyway. life is good (for me). really. i'm blessed.

suppose i never ever met you. suppose we never fell in love.
