Today - was a Chaco day. The weather was beau-tee-ful. (until about 6 when it started raining) BUT I was able to break them out and wear them for the first time this season! YAY for warm weather! I can not wait until I can wear them every day!
So, Sometimes I get an idea of a drawing I want to do in my head. A few days ago, this happened. I haven't had time until now to do it though (I took a test Sat. Mon. Tue and Wed. ... sick). Anyway, since I finally had some free time, I decided to do it. First though, I needed to take a picture of what I wanted to draw... me. I wanted to do sort of an eery pic. too. So Jill helped me brainstorm, and we decided I would do one where I had fallen down the stairs. It is a little bit creepy... but I think it is SO COOL! Let me know what you think!
I hate falling, because no matter how much I pretend like it didn't hurt. It always does. Like today, when I pretended to be brave, but really I just wanted to cry.
When I fell out of the car at girls choice. No one saw, and this was the smaller of the MULTIPLE bruises and scrapes that I got. I had to run into the dance and pretend like I hadn't just slid down the side of a car.
Or... This time, when I was practicing for my clogging test, and I chugged on the wrong texture of floor. (except I really did cry this time)
OR today, when I slipped on THIS puddle
and got THIS injury (it doesn't look that bad, but trust me, it hurts) and Katherine was right there, so I had to act tough.
The point of this? A. I either need to stop falling.
B. I need to learn to be able to cry when I fall, because I want to EVERY time!
WHY did I spend 30 minutes this morning ... Showering ... Applying Product ... Blow Drying ... Straightening ... AND ...Styling my hair JUST so it could SNOW this afternoon and get ruined on my SHORT walk from the Math Building to the LIBRARY!(For those of you unfamiliar with BYU's campus - that is approximately 100 ft or LESS!)Now my hair looks disgusting, and I basically wasted 30 minutes of precious studying time. (Not to mention the 10 more minutes I'm wasting on my blog :) ).
All I have to say is - Thank You Utah.
OH (and Tegan, it probably wouldn't have snowed if you didn't ask me if I thought it would any more this morning. I guess to you I can say - I told you so - unfortunately)
I have been thinking lately... I have a LOT of things that I am grateful for, and they simply reasons to be happy. Here are just are 4 of them.
- I LOVE LOVE LOVE being at school right now. My classes are AWESOME! I'm obsessed with linear algebra. It is great.
- I have the most AMAZING friends. End of story.
- I bought a Kite yesterday. I flew my kite yesterday. AND it is beginning to feel like SPRING!
- I'm drinking Cranberry juice right now. YUM.
and this is just to name a FEW.
I find when I look for reasons to be happy, I notice there are hundreds. I've started thinking of these every morning - and continue thinking them throughout the day. I really am very blessed and it is good to remember why and be grateful for it. I dare you to think of 5 things in your life that you are grateful for. I can almost promise you, these 5 reasons will make you happy for the rest of the day.
