Wednesday, November 6

first snow

On my to do list for the night is to fit in a shower. Laura, are you reading this? Are you proud?

It's one of those weeks, I guess. Not that I'm complaining. It's just one of those weeks where naps are taking precedence over showers and breakfast is a muffin and protein bar in class.

Still. Not. Complaining.

Thankfully Avril released her new album and it is head bangin' and everything I could have wanted from my main girl. (I called my dad this morning to ask if he'd downloaded it yet. His response, "No, because I don't know how to put it on my music player since you still haven't taught me." Noted.) It's almost good enough to make me forget she married someone from Nickleback, which is coincidentally my dad's other favorite musician.

I also finished editing 900 photos from the wedding I did in late September and I definitely feel like that justifies a glass of wine before dinner. But wait, there's still a test to study for, a discussion question to post with 75 pages of reading I have yet to do, and three workshop critiques to finish before 11pm.

I really have nothing meaningful or even interesting to say about my day or my life this evening. But the way I figure it, not every blog post should mean something. Sometimes it's okay to say that today I haven't showered because there was two inches of snow on the ground when I woke up and I decided to stay in bed an extra fifteen minutes.

Decisions like those sometimes mean the difference between a day feeling like all you did was run around doing a million things and feeling like though you had a busy day, the stress of it doesn't feel so tangible because you got an extra fifteen minutes to prepare for it all.

Every day is a constant battle to get out of bed early and be cute, or sleep for fifteen more minutes. I always pick the latter but in the winter. Girl. I cannot get out of bed when I know my floor and my toilet seat will be cold. We had our first snow the other night too. Our melted later that day but the cold has remained. You deserve that new album and all the wine before dinner for dealing with snow.

I've always wanted a mug like that. Jealous. And I loved this post, because I don't do enough just blogging because I can.

Lovely post!

Blogging just to blog, is one of the easiest things to take for granted. I'm in the blogger family, and I used to blog all throughout high school and then I stopped. I got busy, and I felt like I didn't have anything all that interesting to share. But that doesn't matter, blogging doesn't have to be for an audience, at least not every day. So thank you, for reaffirming that for me :), even though I found your post really interesting--I had NO idea Avril had a new album. I'm also going to add myself to the chorus of people loving your mug ;).
