celebration and enlightenment

To say life is good would be an understatement.

I'm sitting in a comfy chair in my apartment with my room mate and best friend. We're having a celebratory day of laziness in light of the events that took place this weekend, which I will address later. These festivities have included pajamas, Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, Jersey Shore (which is like watching a car accident...its so terrible but you can't stop staring), a lemon cheeseball, mountain dew, and Pretty Woman.

I can't really describe how I feel right now, other than to say I am so happy.

I've never considered myself to be pessimistic. I like to think of myself as a glass-half-full type person. But at the same time, I have always tried to be realistic. As bad as this sounds, I tend to expect for and assume the worst in situations. That way, you don't fall so hard or hurt so bad when things don't work out the way you had hoped. I know for a fact that I am like that simply from experience, but you know what I have realized?

That is no way to live.

I believe that God has a plan for my life, and that plan does not include me being miserable and waiting for the weight of the world to fall on my shoulders at any time. I think the experiences that I've had in life have molded me and shaped me into who I am. And to say that all the past mistakes I've made, people who have hurt me, disappointments, heartache, happiness, friendships and love--won and lost, blessings, excitement, and tears have brought me to right here, right now....

I would do it all again in a heartbeat.


On a different note, I pride myself in saying that I attend Mississippi State University. And this weekend, we not only beat the pants off of the University of Memphis...our rival school (TSUN) lost to Jacksonville State! HAHAH!

That, my friends, calls for a celebration. And our celebration continues, as we are about to watch Juno. I also believe I have acquired a taste for mountain dew.

  2. Sorry, I forgot to text or call you about dinner tonight! We stayed at the farm until too late! Please forgive me! Glad you had a great weekend, and I glad to know you like Montain's my fav too. (even though it's not too good for you) We have to have some kind of vice, right?
