wanderlust

apparently this girl had a dream she was my co-pilot in an awesome van. she also posted this video:

oh great. now i seriously want to jump in a ’60s van, blast the tunes and get outta town. [don’t worry camille, you can come, too.]

blessings.

so, i was having a really rotten, no good past few days.  school is so close to being over, i think it’s mostly just end of the semester stress… and the cold [it was basically snowing on friday!]

but i have been so blessed this week.  here’s how:

. like i said, semester almost over

. an awesome, selfless boyfriend who let’s me rant, complain, etc. and knows the tease : sympathize ratio perfectly. he also just holds me and lets me be.  remember that scene in waitress (around 1:20)? yeah, that’s how it was for me, these past couple of days.

. family who lets me rant and complain [especially my mother, who just had a birthday!]

. essie nail polish.  this is by far the brightest color i’ve had since i was like 14… but i like it.  it makes me happy (thanks to boy for helping me pick it out)- also their top coat “no chip” works really well. just sayin.

. m&ms

. running/ pilates: these endorphins were definitely needed

. my awesome classmates who listened to me rant

. pandora: well picked songs, as always [new amsterdams, nicole reynolds, angus & julia stone, etc.]

. Mosiah 15

. rain boots

. sweet potato fries and burgers; pizza and lemonade

. divine comedy

i love my roommate [sarah]

today, while organizing/ cleaning, sarah and i had the following conversation[s]:

me: there’s a myth that this is the field that Van Gogh shot himself in.  historically, it’s been proven inaccurate, but I like to stick to the myth. it’s better
sm: I like the idea of getting flowers from a guy. i’ve never gotten them before.
me: really? yeah, i guess i’ve only gotten them from my dad…
sm: i think guys think it’s old fashioned, dying out and cliché.  
me: yeah, but girl’s like cliché.
sm: so true.
me: if you think about it, giving flowers is so ephemeral.  like, “here, have something beautiful that’s going to die.
sm: but if you think about it, it’s more like carpe diem, like a reminder to make life the most of it.
sm: sometimes, i wish we could record our conversations.

happy birthday sm!

last april, i met this girl.  she is so amazing.  we became fast friends, and our bond grew after she went to london and saw everything i had grown to love for two years.

today is her birthday.

sarah:  thanks for the advice.  thanks for being sassy with me, especially when i need it.  thanks for being the “ted” of our group.  thanks for listening to all my mini freak outs and bringing me back to reality.

sarah, you’re the tops.
