What? What was I doing? Talking? Talking about what? Talking in circles?
Thus has been my day. Always feeling less accomplished. And today would just happen to be #NationalStressAwarenessDay; And stress is what I’ve been feeling as of late.

What? You can take away my alcohol, but you can NEVER take away my caffeine!

Wait, what was it that I did first thing this morning? Even before I took my adorably cute dog for a walk? (Of course I fed him and let him out in the backyard) Oh, yeah, I grabbed A BIG TUMBLER OF coffee and went to my neighbor’s house to help me with [what turned out to be] an adorably cute [the source of my yesterday’s downfall- which only added to the bad mood] some adorable sayings and journal prompts glued on scraps of paper (which disgustingly was glued on with GLITTER GLUE [not even a real gluestick- glitter glue]) making me very anxious because our project was to start in the BEGINNING OF NOVEMBER- and it was already November 2nd. She helped me to complete my dream of a thankful journal, AND SHE SAID IT WAS A CUTER WAY TO DO IT THAN MY HUSBAND’S SUGGESTION OF: why don’t you just glue it in a notebook?
Do you believe that? a common wire notebook like the one that you would use in high school?
Uck, high school. Would my head seem to be rolling around on the floor if I had not just gone to a girls’ small group at my church?
We don’t know.
We do know that I am glad that I am no longer in high school. Not only was it hard academically, it was hard socially. OH, HOW WAS IT HARD SOCIALLY.
Never fear, my high school-er friends, COLLEGE IS MUCH BETTER. It gets easier- socially, academically- I don’t know if only because you pick what you are learning, so therefore LIKE IT, PLUS we’re out of our socially awkward stage. Sure, you have to figure stuff out on your own- like sweaters are NOT meant to go through the dryer, and that you probably should sleep more than 20 minutes for 3 nights in a row– but you also learn to be an INDEPENDENT PERSON and without parental restrictions; but oh, IT DOES GET BETTER.
Pumpkin ice cream seems to make it all better though. Pumpkin ice cream always makes it better in November. The month we can all be THANKFUL all month long!
(And funny jack o laterns!)
