3 things


Recommended Posts

1. The meter maid finished with the parking section I usually park in (without paying, because I'm only in a spot for all of 3-5 minutes) before I pulled into a spot, thus ensuring I didn't get a ticket.

2. When I walked into Starbucks for my tall iced black coffee, "Passin' Me By" by The Pharcyde was playing. It's one of my favorite songs on Earth, just the smile-inducing moment I needed before walking into the final that had me too agitated and stressed to sleep.

3. The final? Super hard. But it's over now. And I'm grateful for that.

I turned 22 today, it's one of those weird birthdays in my opinion because it's not really a mile stone, it's only another stepping stone. I just started thinking about everything that has happened in my life; I've had some very harsh patches and some patches that I wouldn't trade for anything. The three things that I am most grateful for over all are:

1 my family; we don't always get along, but they've always supported me and helped me through the crap that life throws out of nowhere 

2 my friends; I'm not all that social and tend to lose connections to people pretty quickly, but somehow this great group of people has kept me around for four years

3  life in general; it's probably the most important thing ever, since if there's no life there's nothing to be grateful for. Life is also important because it is a new and crazy experience everyday

 

Sorry for the mush, I think I got a little heat exhaustion today and it's making me loopy and emotional

For a while I was reminding myself every night of 5 things that I was greatful for.  Then for some reason I stopped.  Thanks to this post, I'm going to start up again.  It puts things in perspective.

 

1) That I can support my son and myself

2) That I am taking a positive step towards improving my work conditions

3) That I have the most wonderful best friend EVER!!!

1. My ex got his first full time position in his career field, before he's even half finished with his degree and he had a choice between two offers even! Which obviously benefits me financially, being the baby mama! lol

2. My daughter got accepted into the alternative school I wanted for her

3. I have a home, food, clothing and am loved, which is amazingly wonderful!

1.  My bed is completely covered with pets--it's amazing how much space two cats and a dog can take up.  I love all of them.

 

2.  My kindergartener knows how to read!  And now that she knows how, she wants to read all.the.time.  She reads picture books and billboards and her National Geographic Kids magazine to me.

 

3.  My friend Lauren can sit up and sort Uno cards into piles by color.  This is a huge deal.  She was run over by a car in January and sustained severe brain injuries, as well as a broken neck and some other major injuries.  Go Lauren!

Well - 

 

1. After several weeks of intense searching, we finally found a place in New York for when we move in August. (UM. HOLY #@$!. WE MOVE IN LIKE EIGHT WEEKS. WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN?!)

 

2. I'm off today - which is rare - and the weather is nice, so I'm off for a long ride.

 

3. Though today she's busy with work, yesterday my girlfriend and I finally got some time together and spent a perfect afternoon down by the waterfront - there's nothing better than oysters by the beach and a long walk on a gorgeous afternoon. Summer has finally arrived in New England. :)

1.  Have I mentioned my dog yet?  Because, seriously, MY DOG.  Missy is a 25-lb. terrier mutt, I don't know what she's mixed with (I've heard everything from Papillon to Dalmatian!), she looks like a dust mop, and she is just all kinds of awesome. 

 

2.  Free time.  I took the evening for myself.  I played video games, took Miss Dog for a long walk, called my boyfriend, called my daughter...it has been SO chill.

 

3.  My job.  Tomorrow is going to be a big day.  We'll need all hands on deck from the time I start at 6:00 until at least 12:00.  So what is my manager doing?  Coming in early with breakfast burritos. :blink: WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN

 

3.5  I'm not working at The Private Ambulance Mega Evil Conglomerate anymore!
