so long, and thanks for all the fish

30. A picture of yourself this day and 5 good things that happened since you started the challenge.

I started this blog [challenge] on February 3rd. Since then, A lot of amazing things have happened to me. I have so much to be grateful for. Let me count the ways...

- Valentine's Day! I dressed in all pink, white, and red, and my valentine dressed up for me, too. We went about a normal monday school day without seeing each other, but he called me awake and called me all day after that, leaving me sweet voicemails and cute texts. I finally saw my love before wind orchestra, briefly, and I could hardly contain my excitement. After class we exchanged gifts and then went to an early dinner. It was so simple and perfect.

- Summer job offers. This summer we've got a couple of options, which is great. I don't feel nervous about my near future at all, financially speaking that is.

- Reconnecting with my grandmom. Before I wrote that post about her, it had been several weeks since I've spoken to her. And before that, I would talk to her almost every day. Being able to hear her voice again was such bliss, I forgot how terribly I missed that woman. Since that blog post, I've been talking with her much more often. It's been just like back in the day, and I plan to keep it like that.

- Solidifying my priorities a little better. I've always had them pretty disorderly in my youth, even though I knew what I wanted out of life and what I needed to do. This semester, and more specifically these last 30 days, I've put my self sermon into effect: with balancing le boyfriend, instrumental practice hours, personal time, and study time, I have felt more satisfied than ever before. Not to say that things have been flawless, no no no. But now I'm pretty sure my conscience has been pleased with my decisions on a daily basis. I feel more in control than ever before. And that's a pretty good feeling.

- Understanding and experiencing the notion of true love. Life has been so incredibly happy and fulfilling ever since I got back together with Ben. Never would I have believed this would be our turnout. I am so in love! And I'm so comfortable. and grateful. and lucky. Before this very colorful college relationship of ours, I had a preconceived notion of what love was. I thought I knew, but I had no idea. 

Okay, so there's my five good things, and that's me today around 1 o'clock. Goodbye for now. I'll write again sometime after April 23rd. I promise to keep away from here until then!

it's been quite the journey

I am so done with blogging! In the best way possible. I realize there are many different lists out there and ways of challenging fellow bloggers. This is my list. It's incomplete, as I've left out the last day, which is tomorrow's subject. Here you can check out what I’ve accomplished over the last month, and maybe decide to use this list to take the challenge upon yourselves. After tomorrow, I know I'm taking a break from the blog world – I’m going to use this future withdrawal of mine as what I'm giving up for lent. I'm not Catholic, but I don't have to be to follow this great practice of sacrifice. And maybe I'm cheating because what I'm giving up I'm pretty sick of as it is, but I think that after a couple of days I'm probably going to yearn to write again. I think I'm probably addicted, so only time will tell if I can withstand this next challenge of blogging abstinence. I looked up the dates of lent and it said it ends on Saturday, April 23rd. Although lent doesn't technically begin until March 9th, I'm seriously done after tomorrow. 

13. Goals

aaaaand finally...
(continuous drumroll ‘til tomorrow.)

from the lamp itself

Day 29: 3 Wishes.

Umm, lets see. 
One, I'd like to be able to never have to worry about money again. I would live within average means, but for once, I would love to know I'll be okay financially.

Two, I want to fly. I would wish for a pair of wings that I could use at my pleasure. When I was a little girl I had these recurring dreams where I went about a normal day but I would be hovering feet away from the ground. The ability to fly would be ideal.

And three? More wishes? No, that's lame. I don't know, maybe to have a healthy life. I've already been fairly fortunate in that field, so this wish seems wasted. But I dunno, health is a big deal.

two days to go

Day 28: Something that stresses you out.

Having a euphonium lesson the morning after a big flute recital, and not being prepared. 

A midterm in percussion techniques that I didn't know about until the night before.
Texting people multiple times and them taking their dear time getting back to me.
School in general.
