A few of the random musings on my mind lately…
*Last weekend, we started off cleaning out a closet which turned into us cleaning out my entire office. No joke, we filled up an entire weekly trash bin, an entire weekly recycling bin (the huge, blue stand up kind), and sent three bags of stuff to Goodwill. It is crazy how much stuff a person can accumulate! My office already feels lighter & more productive for doing it!
*We leave next week for Antigua! There are visions of floppy hats & frosty fruity drinks already floating through my mind.
*My Senior year of college, I met with my advisor before my last semester and we realized that I had already met all of my major’s requirements a while ago but I was 19 credit hours short to graduate. So I either had to take all 19 hours in one semester or do classes over the summer. That didn’t sound like any fun at all so I went for all 19 hours my last semester! To make it all fit into the schedule, it ended up being the most RANDOM stuff. Things like Italian II (even though I’d never had Italian I), Intro to Dance, Non-verbal Communication, Statistics, Metaphysics, and An Independent Study on the Philosopher Rousseau. I think that’s what they call a well-rounded education.
*I’m terrified of snakes. Terrified of them. Put it this way, if I had been Noah the snakes would have been given wrong directions to the ark. In all the time I’ve lived in Connecticut, I have never seen a snake here and I had started to convince myself that we were indeed living in the promised land. But a couple days ago we went hiking and we saw not one, but TWO. I’ve already begun making plans to move.
*Noxema is my face wash of choice. Every time I smell it, it reminds me of high school & summer.
*I shoot 90% of my images vertically. I have to constantly remind myself that I can hold the camera the other way too.
*I think it would be awesome to visit Alaska & kayak up to a glacier. But I’m not going to lie, all of those pinterest pictures of the guy in the kayak with the whale right underneath totally freak me out. Do you think that’s a real thing? If the whale knocked you out of the boat, do you think he would then come save you Free Willy style? Because that could be cool.
*It’s April, which means it’s almost May, which means it’s almost MY BIRTHDAY!! :)
*Watch this video of golden retriever puppies. Thank me later.
*Speaking of, I think our dog is anti-selfie. Because every time we try, this is what we get.
Happy Friday y’all!
