I'm being optimistic for once.


[A slightly newer photo for the archives.]

So. Today I'm sitting in my dorm, skipping a few classes. I have the worst cold I've had in quite some time...but it could be much much worse. I am, thankfully, caught up on all of my homework and such, so there won't be that problem when I get back into things on Wednesday.

Recapping my New Year's Un-resolutions List I think I've actually managed everything. Thank God losing weight wasn't on that list or I wouldn't be able to say that. I found the job, I changed my major...I have a plan. I'll be starting a savings account as soon as the job takes off. Everything fell right into place. I'm rather impressed.

Yet another happy note: I got to spend a wonderful weekend with the people I care most about. Events were rolling in one after the other, starting with the Friday night high school basketball game, which I only caught the end of. (Because yes, I am lame, and I still go to high school games sometimes.) We lost, but it was a great game anyways. (Overtime. Very dramatic. I thought Raina was going to have a heart attack. =]) Then Saturday Kyle and I went out with mom to celebrate the new job. Sizzling fajitas and a maple butter blondie for dessert made my night. Sunday was lunch and a movie and a bit of shopping with Kyle's amazing mom and sister. Then Sunday night was spent at my grandma's. Busy. But great. Even if I was more than a little sniffly.

I picked up two new books while shopping. P.S. I Love You by Cecelia Ahern, and The Kitchen God's Wife by Amy Tan. I've already read the last one. I've been an Amy Tan fan for quite a few years now. This one is my favorite of hers, so it's high up on my recommendation list. I can't wait to get around to reading P.S....but that actually might be a good activity for today since I don't feel like being up and about much...

Tomorrow, hopefully, this cold will be gone and I can get back to being a busy little vegetable. But if not, at least I'll have some books to keep my mind occupied.


  1. What a cute couple you make .. so young and OPTIMISTIC - which in my world, is the only way to be!
