Happy Thoughts

I am in an awesome mood.  I’m not sure why. 

But I can give a few reasons that might be contributing to the happy feeling. 

1.  I had bible study tonight.  I always feel better about life after bible study.  I love the people, I love the conversation, and I love discussing the bible. 

2.  I went over to Jessica and Gina’s house for a wine and cheese party to celebrate Lil’ Jessie’s birthday.  Molly and Gina did a rap video, Faris and I got to hang out (she complained that I don’t update this beotch enough), and it was an all around fabulous night of good friends and ridiculous.  I didn’t really drink.  I’m still trying to dry out from last week. 

3.  I finally have a roommate.  I don’t see her too much – she leaves very early in the morning and sometimes doesn’t get back till late – but we get along very well and it is great to come home and have someone to chat with for twenty minutes before you go to sleep.  It is comforting just to know there is someone else here.  I am not cut out for solitary habitation. 

4.  I had the pleasure of consuming a Globe hamburger after bible study.  I basically browbeat everyone into going to the globe – and it was awesome.  They have the bestest hamburgers ever. 

5.  I’m starting to realize that even though sometimes I go through anti social spells where all I really want to do it sit around by myself or run by myself or go to movies by myself – I am much, much happier when I am busy and around people and consumed with life instead of being consumed with my own personal immediate whim.  I need obligations. 

6.  I have two more hours of class before it is the weekend again!  YAY!

7.  Have I ever mentioned how much I love Thursdays?

Seven seems like a lucky number . Yawn.  Faris – this one is for you.

We had a blast in Utah.  I got to ski my little heart and knees out.

I posted the pictures in an album that you can look at on the sidebar.

We had a fabulous group – Jessica, Jamie, Jay, Lauren, Ben, John Paul, Cristina and me.

I don’t really know what to do with myself now.  I had a presentation yesterday – which was stressful Monday night when I first got home.

But now that I am finished with that, I am kind of blah.  I have class at 4:30 today.  And then I have class in the morning.  And then no more school till monday.

Law Prom is this weekend!  And the Masters is in two weeks!   Yay!

Undecided State of mind

As far as school is concerned – my spring break starts today.  But – since I have an interview this afternoon, I have to take the MPRE on Saturday, and I have to get an outline done for my writing requirement paper before I leave – my spring break won’t actually start for a few more days. 

But I’m having a hard time concentrating.  Jessica sent the information for the house in Deer Valley – and I can’t even talk about how excited I am.  SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO EXCITED!!  Can’t breathe excited.  As I always get right before I go skiing.  Also – I’m going out in augusta tonight for Mary Beth’s – my favorite pick cupcake – birthday, which is tomorrow!  I’m going to drink sake!  I love sake!

But I have to study tomorrow so I’m not going to drink too much sake. 

So, I need to work on concentration and stop daydreaming about next week.  RIIIGGGHHTTT.

In other news – I saw Brokeback Mountain last night.  Seriously – most definitely the most depressing movie I’ve EVER seen.  I wanted to kill myself most of the movie.  Maybe that is a little extreme, but I can say that it made me very sad and everyone’s life seemed very bleak.  It was enough to turn anyone into an alcoholic.  I would have to be sent off to betty ford.  The natural beauty of Wyoming was amazing – but there is something so stark about the lifestyle, I don’t know.  It made me very sad, all over – in my bones and my brain and my heart.  Just sad sad sad. 

I had to sit on the floor in legal profession this morning.  I came in thirty second late and was just trying to disappear – which was made quite easy by the fact that there was no chair where my chair was suppose to be.  So I sat on the floor.  Doesn’t that suck?  I would like to kick in the shins whoever keeps stealing the chairs in legal profession.  DRIVES ME NUTS.  The chair is always there when I get there on time.  WTF?  What ev, I got to sign the attendance sheet – and I didn’t have to worry about getting called on because C. Ron couldn’t see me.  Sweet. 

I feel like there was something else I was going to tell y’all – but I can’t remember what it was. 

Bible study was awesome last night – I think this is going to be a productive Lenten season.  Yay God!

Things I don’t understand

How sometimes I can be so damn sensitive and have my feeling hurt so easily and how other times I am able to not take thing personally by recognizing the fact that most people are way more concerned with themselves than they are with me. 

My tendency to talk to myself.  Seriously – this probably needs to stop.  I don’t know why I do it – and most of the time I don’t even realized I’m doing it.  I also have a tendency to sing along to my ipod while I’m running and am often embarrassed when I come upon someone on the trail who catches me singing.  I don’t feel like I can claim to be a normal human being with the habit of talking to myself.  But maybe everyone does it?

I am very confused by the smoothie I drank this morning.  The ingredients listed were appl e juice, fresh bananas, fresh strawberries, red delicious apples, and fresh squeezed  orange juice.  But it also says that each 8 ounce serving has 0.5 grams of fat.  Where does the fat come from?  Is there fat in bananas?  No way.

I twisted my ankle quite badly on Sunday.  It is very sad – but I think I will survive.  I don’t mind being sick  – I’m a hypochondriac as it is – but I HATE being injured.  HATE HATE HATE being injured.  Which I guess is pretty rich considering my track record of injuries.  Growing up I went at everything 900 miles an hour and this led to accidents and unfortunate bodily injury.  Maybe this is why I hate being injured so much. 

I’ve been eating a bowl of pasta I bought at Eatzie’s since Friday night.  I finally succeeded in finishing it all off.  Yay me. 

Have I ever told you how much I love NCIS?  Seriously –  love it.

Free Dolly on iTunes

Please, Please, Please, go download the Dolly Parton song from the Transamerica soundtrack.  It is free, and I don’t know how long it is going to be free – maybe just today – it is up for an academy award and I’m thinking they might be doing a different sound every day.  It is an amazing song.  Makes me want to laugh and cry at the same time. 

Have I ever told y’all how much I adore Dolly?  She is my hero. 

Here are the lyrics – Dolly Parton – Travelin’ Thru – Transamerica Soundtrack

Well I can’t tell you where I’m going, I’m not sure of where I’ve been
But I know I must keep travelin’ till my road comes to an end
I’m out here on my journey, trying to make the most of it
I’m a puzzle, I must figure out where all my pieces fit
Like a poor wayfaring stranger that they speak about in song
I’m just a weary pilgrim trying to find what feels like home
Where that is no one can tell me, am I doomed to ever roam
I’m just travelin’, travelin’, travelin’, I’m just travelin’ on

Questions I have many, answers but a few
But we’re here to learn, the spirit burns, to know the greater truth
We’ve all been crucified and they nailed Jesus to the tree
And when I’m born again, you’re gonna see a change in me

God made me for a reason and nothing is in vain
Redemption comes in many shapes with many kinds of pain
Oh sweet Jesus if you’re listening, keep me ever close to you
As I’m stumblin’, tumblin’, wonderin’, as I’m travelin’ thru

I’m just travelin’, travelin’, travelin’, I’m just travelin’ thru
I’m just travelin’, travelin’, travelin’, I’m just travelin’ thru

Oh sometimes the road is rugged, and it’s hard to travel on
But holdin’ to each other, we don’t have to walk alone
When everything is broken, we can mend it if we try
We can make a world of difference, if we want to we can fly

Goodbye little children, goodnight you handsome men
Farewell to all you ladies and to all who knew me when
And I hope I’ll see you down the road, you meant more than I knew
As I was travelin’, travelin’, travelin’, travelin’, travelin’ thru

I’m just travelin’, travelin’, travelin’, I’m just travelin’
Drifting like a floating boat and roaming like the wind
Oh give me some direction lord, let me lean on you
As I’m travelin’, travelin’, travelin’, thru

I’m just travelin’, travelin’, travelin’, I’m just travelin’ thru
I’m just travelin’, travelin’, travelin’, I’m just travelin’ thru

Like the poor wayfaring stranger that they speak about in song
I’m just a weary pilgrim trying to find my own way home
Oh sweet Jesus if you’re out there, keep me ever close to you
As I’m travelin’, travelin’, travelin’, as I’m travelin’ thru

I have all the windows in my house open.  It is lovely.  I should probably actually be outside – but when I was outside earlier the wasps were trying to attack me so now I am safe behind the screens.  Actually – I should be in class right now.  But it is too pretty.  So having the windows open is as good as it gets. 

Earlier I watched the boys next door load up their little boat that lives next to my car in the parking lot with fishing poles and a cooler.  It made me quite jealous. 

Things I can hear:

people talking and laughing far away – children laughing and playing
the hummmmm and buzzzzz of the bugs
the trill and song of the birds – the mockingbirds are my favorite and they have just recently come back from their winter vacation. 
The airplanes flying in and out of ben epps airport – this makes me feel like I’m in augusta because at my house in augusta you can hear all the daniel field planes. 
my neighbors opening and closing their car doors
the rumble of passing cars
the rustle of the trees and the leaves on the ground as the wind blows by

Things I can smell:
someone’s charcoal grill – I think hamburgers and b-b-q chicken is for dinner tonight
the warm breeze out of the pine trees
the faint whiff of cleaning solution
the occasional fragrance of the tea olive across the parking lot

What a wonderful day.

Forecast – Beautiful

3272 degrees and sunny. 

Today is quite possibly the most beautiful day imaginable. 

I had my door open until a wasp came to visit.  Before the wasp came to visit Baxter the pug from a couple of doors down came to visit.  I infinitely prefer Baxter to the wasp.  I was much friendlier to Baxter.  I let him live.  The wasp – not so much.  He had to die.  I mean – he would have died soon anyway because it is going to get cold tonight.  So, no, I don’t feel bad about it. 

I’m thinking about going to Larry’s for lunch.  Dot is cleaning my apartment in anticipation of my new roomie.  It is so nice to have a clean apartment.  Because I also cleaned my room myself before Dot because she can’t vacuum if she can’t see the floor. 

Fat Tuesday was fun last night.  I really love everyone I hung out with last night.  And I got to go to the grill which made it a perfect night. 

I’m going to the ATL tomorrow.  Anyone going to be around?  I have to take an MPRE class Saturday morning at emory.  But other than that I should be laying around the Wieuca Terrace basically taking up space and soaking up Betsy.
