I was on Spring Break for the past week and had no internet. Unfortunate, yes. But I’m back. Hi. (:

As for right now, here’s something remarkable I found through a friend on Facebook. Happy Pi Day!

I love this song. It’s been stuck in my head for a while now. Just wanted to share.

Bad idea, for the record.

So, my day’s goodness rating has risen steadily since I woke up today. I didn’t get much sleep last night, thanks to the fact that I was doing laundry. Yeah, that’s a bad idea, too (not doing laundry, just staying up too late to do it). I woke up just in time for my 8 AM class. It was not the best. I was the only one on time. I probably just could have slept in. When that was done, instead of chapel, I went back to my room and slept. I had every intention of sleeping just til 10 then getting up and getting ready. I got up literally 10 minutes before my 10:45 class. While that was disappointing, it did increase the goodness of my day quite a bit. It was sleep.
After this class, I went back to my room and cleaned like a madwoman for room checks tonight. Finished that in 30 minutes, which instantly made life better. The, finally, I got to shower and make myself look human (and I happen to think I ended up exceptionally nice looking today). I then proceeded to march down to Boone Business Building and kick the butt of my first Financial Stewardship exam. When that was taken care of, I went to the cafeteria for the first time (mind you, it was about 2 PM by this time). I ate a few cherry tomatoes. It was glorious. I relaxed with my dear friend Abbi and reveled in those cherry tomatoes for about an hour. Yeah. When Abbi went to class, I went to Abba Java and had coffee with my delightful friend Shane. It was probably the most we’ve ever talked to each other and it was wonderful.
Finally, my day culminated with a songwriter’s showcase at which Abbi’s little sister and my dear friend Kaeli was performing. She was amazing, as usual. My day ended at at least a solid 9 out of 10.

One problem though. I had more caffeine than food today. I’m about to remedy that, but I wanted you all to know: I had a really great day.


Also, yeah. That.

Story of my.. Day. I slept entirely too much last night, then napped this afternoon. Bad, bad, bad idea.
So, I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. It’s sort of silly, but it’s also sort of a big deal in my life. Do me a favor. Think of the people you most want to be like. Now think about yourself. If you told everyone in the world to think of who they wanted to be like, at least one person  would think of you. Yes, you. And of me. Now, think about this: those same people you want to be like? They might even think of you. That’s what you call a confidence boost.

Another fun thing about today. My delightful internet friend E’llise introduced me to a fun band. They’re just my style. Gregory and the Hawk. Yes. I’ll post a song at the end of this, but geez. They are making me so happy. Thanks, hun. You brightened my night.

I’ve decided I may as well participate in the 30 Day Letter Challenge. Also, the 30 Songs in 30 Days Challenge. So, here it is.

Day 1- Your Best Friend

Dear _______,
This could be written to any number of good friends in my life.
Rachel,
You always read my blog and you always have something delightful to say about it. Aside from that, you are, in fact, one of my absolute best friends. You have been since Freshman year. You put up with my obnoxious whining and my misplaced “senioritis” with minimal complaining. You still put up with my complaints about life and love and everything in between and you give me remarkably good advice on all of it. Or, most of it. I love you dearly and miss you being around.
Casey,
You accept me as I am, always. You help me escape the bad things in my life. You’re beautiful and you deserve a better best friend than I can be a lot of times, but you love me anyway! (I hope). You’ve made me look good countless times. You’ve made me feel good even more times. You scare me all the time, but it’s always in good fun. Or, usually, anyway. I still expect to marry you and make baster babies one day.

Love,
Ari

Day 1- Your Favorite Song
It’s a tie.
“I Will Follow You Into The Dark” by Death Cab for Cutie OR
“Transatlanticism” by Death Cab for Cutie

So, I’ve realized something about myself: I have the bad habit of accidentally breaking/messing up things I really like. Take, for example, my awesome boots from my very first post. I love those. A lot. But they’re messed up. (And for the record, I’ll probably keep wearing them until they are in multiple pieces.) So, in a similar fashion, today I accidentally stepped on my favorite mirror. My little, slightly magnified, red rimmed, “I put my makeup on with this every day” mirror is no more.

While I still plan to keep it just as an art piece, I’m going to miss sitting at my desk, multitasking on Facebook while putting on my makeup in the mornings.

I discovered another thing about myself today, also. And it isn’t necessarily good, either. I realized that, if I like someone or admire them in any way, while I may want them to like me back and think highly of me, I tend to not talk to them if presented with the opportunity. In fact, I tend to do the opposite completely. I ignore that they’re there in hopes that they’ll think I’m cool enough to talk to. Ya know, that or I’m just really shy and absolutely paralyzed by the idea of talking to someone who I consider cooler than myself. I think it might be a little of both, though I only do the latter on purpose. If you can call being shy something you do on purpose. I really should get over that.

Today wasn’t all bad, though. I made one of two fingerless mittens, perfect for texting. I’ll probably complete the second sometime tomorrow. I’m proud. See?

Perfect for typing and texting, the two things I manage to do rather well at all times.

And the best part of my day? Tonight we had rehearsal for Timbre’s Christmas show this Friday. I literally stood open-mouthed and in awe the majority of the time that I wasn’t actually required to sing. This event is one of the innumerable reasons that I auditioned for Mads in the first place. I cannot believe that I’m getting to share the stage with such talented musicians. Again I say, if you are in the Nashville area this Friday night, come out and see this show. I’ll be selling homemade crafts and singing in the choir. You won’t regret it.
