great things.



 
>>> how absolutely ridiculous do i look when taking bathroom selfies/snapchatting at work? it's borderline horrific when you get caught. you just have to laugh.
 
>>> presenting a section of the textbook to your class & having your professor say, 'wow, i don't think i could have taught this section that well.' then the class starts chanting your name, but not actually.  #nailedit  also school related: i actually like one of my group project groups. all of them. a lot…i didn’t know that happened?
 
>>> coming across a passage in a book where you just say 'YES. yes yes yes.' and then you  feel like it was speaking directly to you, and you start to understand a few things about your life.
 
"i beg you to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them.
and the point is, to live everything.
live the questions now.
perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer."
 
>>> girl’s nights this weekend. hooray!
 
>>> for the last few weeks i have gone to spinning classes on tuesday/thursday—and ohmygosh. they are butt-kickers! my legs are always a little wobbly the next day, my bum is finally developing a callus to those seats, (i left the first class with a bike seat-shaped bruise around my backside, lovely) and i leave class drenched and panting. this is the best feeling, & helps me stomp on those winter blues!
 
>>> jordan and i both took the ‘which mean girls character are you?’ quiz, (the first time i was kady, what the? i was unhappy with that, so i did it a second time, got karen, and then realized there really is no winning at this. also jordan is regina, typical.) then we took the quiz, which disney princess are you? (i got pocahontas and could have happy-cried about it. i LOVE her.) which star wars character are you? (jordan is queen amidala, HAHA) we were rolling on the floor, laughing so hard and being best friends and i wanted to record this memory somewhere because i want to remember it.
 
>>> having the thought that 90% of the world’s conflict begins because people are hungry, tired, or thirsty. if we could all take care of our bodies, how much conflict could we avoid? i’m going to research & write a book on that. mmmk.
 
>>> killing (some of) your new years resolutions!
 
>>> everyone’s pictures at the ice castles make me so happy, somehow each shot i see is more beautiful than the next! we went a few weeks ago & i was reminded how gorgeous winter can be!



 
>>> jordan’s face in this picture below. too good.
