recently i'm... (18)

Taking pictures... while driving. I know. It's dangerous. I'm sorry. But it's so pretty out I can't help it.

Listening to: Mumford & Son's "Sigh No More"

Reading: I went into Borders the other day and it was one of the most depressing sights ever. However, I did manage to get three books for $7, so I suppose that's one good thing. I got Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe, which I read in high school. The other two I've never read (always a gamble for me when I'm purchasing a book...), but they came highly reviewed. Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn and The Story of a Marriage by Andrew Sean Greer. Hasanyone read either of those?

Enjoying: Being a senior sponsor. Especially on days like Murray's Lake. When we win almost everything (including volleyball, for the first time!). Dominating in tug of war, during the cold rain.

Looking forward to: Spiritual Life Retreat with my seniors this Wednesday. Don't look now, but I might get a little teary when I think about how everything with them is the last time...

Cooking: Will anyone judge me if I confess that I've had hotdogs for dinner 3 nights in a row?

Loving: My new handsoap - Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin by Bath & Body Works!

Really excited about: (Am I even allowed to do this category if I already have a "looking forward to"??) Our church's walkathon!! Look for a post coming soon about how you can support me and Doug in this, if you're interested!

Too obsessed with: Pinterest. Yikes. I need a support group.

Annoyed with: I asked this journal question today: "If you had $500 to donate to any charity or organization, which would you choose and why?" One student responded, "Honestly, if I had $500 I wouldn't donate it." Stop it immediately, you punk.

Enjoying: Sunshine today! I graded some papers outside during my prep hour!

Also loving: that my dad called Doug to ask how he could watch the Monday night game online. Those cuters.

Headed out: to babysit!


  1. 1. please share your soap w/ me. sounds lovely.
    2. love that you are also addicted to pinterest.
    3. cute use of "those cuters." ha!
    4. k, bye.

  2. I read Ella Minnow Pea last winter & it was very fun & a great look at the power of language. Also, we're definitely guilty of having hot dogs way too often. :)
