What I'm thankful for this Thanksgiving

Yes, that's right, I'm jumping the Thanksgiving bandwagon!
So, here's a list of everything I'm thankful for this Thanksgiving:

1.) A great family that I'm able to spend this holiday with. Everybody's gathering at my grandma's house, just like every year, and it's always wonderful to see everybody.

2.) Wonderful friends. This morning I got two text messages from two of my friends wishing me a happy thanksgiving, and it just put a smile on my face.

3.)A nice home that I can come to every night. I'm very grateful that I never have to wonder where I'm sleeping at night.

4.) This country we live in where everyone can speak their minds and read/watch/listen to what they want

5.)Our troops fighting for this country, willing to give their lives for thousands of people they don't know and will never meet.

So, there are the things I'm thankful for. If I reeeeally thought about it, I could probably come up with tons more, but I'll end the list here.


Random Thought: ROLLS!!!!!!....that is all.

30 Day Challenge: Day 5

Day 5: Something you hope to do in your life.

This one is difficult simply because there are so many things I want to do in my life.

If I had to choose one, I would probably say...traveling around Ireland.

I've always thought Ireland as this just beautiful, magnificent country, and I would just love to tour around the countryside, especially to see the castles! And the Blarney stone! Even though I'd probably be too scared to do it, I'd still love to see it.

The thing about traveling around Ireland for me, though, is that I would HAVE to do it with no plan in place. I mean I would obviously have a few cities/tourist attractions that I would definitely go see, but mostly it would just be me wandering around the countryside with absolutely no idea what I was going to do that day. I wouldn't even know whether or not I'd be sleeping in a nice comfy bed, or my car. But that would be just the way I'd like it.

So here's me, setting up a life resolution: Travel around Ireland with NO plan whatsoever.

I feel so accomplished.


Random Thought: As you all know how big of a Harry Potter fan I am, I'm sure you're just itching to know whether or not I went to see the new movie? Nope, sorry, I've decided I hate everything Harry Po-....Okay, I couldn't even finish it. Yes, I saw the movie; yes, I loved it; and yes, I still absolutely, positively LOVE Harry Potter. Bet I had you worried there for a sec, didn't I?

30 Day Challenge: Day 4

Day 4: Something you have to forgive someone else for

Wow, I'm really going to have to dig deep into my pocket of grudges for this one.

I'm going to have to go with something that happened today, actually.

You see, we're doing a fundraiser in band so that we can raise money to go on a trip in April. If everybody sells at least 6 products, we get a doughnut party. If a person sells at least 20 products that person gets a 5 pound bag of (the world's best!) gummy bears. (might I mention this is for EVERY 20 products? So if someone were to sell 75 products, they would get THREE of these bags!). Lucky for us, the nice fundraiser lady let each of us have a handful of gummy bears (that bag wasn't lying, they really are the best). While I was munching on mine over by my friend's stand, this guy we know came up and stole one of them! (I know, terrible right?)
I don't care what you say, those things were delicious, and I'm still upset about it!

So there, something I have to forgive somebody else for.

30 Day Challenge: Day 3

Day 3: Something you have to forgive yourself for

Alright, I had a bit of difficulty with this one. Not because I'm vain enough to think there's nothing which needs forgiving.'s not something I really wanted to spend much time thinking about. And if I really thought long and hard about it, I could probably come up with plenty of things.

Oh, and, for whatever reason, I've decided to share this prompt in the form of a letter to we go...

Dear Me,

*sigh* Alright, you've been thinking about this for a year. You've been wondering what you did wrong, what you could have done better, even if it was because you just weren't pretty enough. But, here's some news for you, it wasn't your fault! If things were meant to work out between you guys, they would have. So, really there isn't anything to forgive, but I know you still feel like it. Like you somehow unconsciously betrayed yourself and caused him to leave. But it wasn't you.

He just missed out on a great girl. ;)



Random though:..........nya?

30 Day Challenge: Day 2?

Okay, so, obviously I fail at this 30 days of truth challenge. I know it has been a few days since the last time I posted, and I'm supposed to post everyday, but I just forget. So, I suppose this will end up being longer than 30 days. More of a 30 whenever-I'm-not-busy-on-Facebook challenge. Either way, I am determined to finish this! So here goes:

Day 2: Something you love about yourself.

I just have to say it; I love how musical I am. There have been times in my life when I just don't know what I would have done without my black nano ipod. Man, do I love that thing! (His name is Vincent) I play both piano and clarinet; the clarinet I have to play every morning for band. The thing about it is, I am almost always in a good mood after playing my clarinet. For those who don't know, I am not a morning person, so, honestly, I can be in a pretty bad mood in the mornings, but playing the clarinet always helps. Music is such a huge part of my life that I just really don't know how I would have gotten through so many things in my life.

So, yeah, my musicality is what I love about myself.
