Think Good Thoughts: Life Is Great

I figured I would partake in the Thankful Things Thursday. Which some days will become Three Things Thursday. All depends on how I feel. Since it’s new to me I’ll just do the simple ones.

I am thankful for family. It’s getting harder and harder for all of us to be together so when we are, I cherish it. Every time I’m back here, I don’t want to leave. Sometimes we’ll fight or bicker, but I know in the end, we love each other even when we never utter that word to each other.

I am thankful for my friends. One of my New Year Resolution is to stay connected with the friends I’ve made and hopefully will make. Even though I don’t see or talk to them all the time, we can still hold a conversation. I hope they know I’m always here for them no matter what – even if we haven’t spoken in five years. Which has actually been a case.

I am thankful for Rocky. Every morning my family goes off to work and I will wake up finding him outside my door waiting for me. He’s always happy to see me and does not hesitate to give me wet kisses. He makes mornings not as lonely since he’ll just lay around wherever I am.

I am thankful for having readers. I blog about boring things and posts come out every once in a while during the school semesters. So to have any readers at all is still a surprise to me. I cannot wait to graduate so I have more time.

I am thankful that my family and friends understand my busy schedule. I’ve always been busy but with FTK stuff, I’ve been busier than ever. And I’m so happy they understand when I can’t come home and visit or I can’t go out and play with them. I’m thankful that they don’t get mad at me when I have to reschedule (which is a lot) and they still want to be my friend afterward. Which leads to …

I am thankful for Andrew C. I have been told to build a new FTK website and this winter break was my task at hand.  That and The FTK Blog. Andrew C. came out of nowhere and swooped in to save me. Okay I pretty much asked if he was willing to. Yes, coding is part of my major. But to do it all on my own is pretty much torture. Which leads to …

I am thankful the new FTK website and The FTK Blog is completed. There is still some work that is needed but to have it the gist of it completed, it just feels damn good.

I am thankful pita chips, bananas, and yogurt. It’s what’s been keeping me full when I’m hungry at night. They’re all gone now. Note to self: Go buy groceries!

I am thankful for fans. No, not screaming fans, though that would be pretty cool. It’s been fairly hot in my room the past few days but my Aunt gets cold easily so without fans, I would of already had a heatstroke.

I am thankful I have things to be thankful for. We live life unappreciative of things around us. I guess this is a good way to stop and “smell the flowers”.

Heart Palpitations

I was just sitting here going through my Google Reader and commenting and what not while all of the sudden my Pandora plays some scary crap. Thanks for the heart palpitations, Pandora. I love the fact you put scary movies as an Ad. I can definitely sleep peacefully now.

Go listen to their “Country Love Song” station. It’s amazing!

Outdoorsy Man Wanted

I was looking at one of my friend’s albums on Facebook today. Creeper status right here. And wondered how fantabulous (is that a word?) it would be to find a guy friend that likes the outdoors. Given I sometimes dislike the heat, it would be nice to hike and do outdoorsy, athletic, fun stuff once in a while. So outdoorsy man, if you’re reading this, let’s be friends. We don’t have to date or anything.

The outdoors seem more of a manly thing in my head. But I guess if you’re a girl, you’ll suffice.

Who You’d Be Today by Kenny Chesney just came on … I guess it’s a love song …

Anyway, I should be going to bed. I finally get to see Ed in less than 10 hours! He got a job as a Chef and recently moved downtown. It would be great to see his new pad and catch up!

Night y’all! Open-mouthed smile
