thankful thursday

29 Oct
  • daddy. b/c i get along with him best out of everyone in my fam. b/c he’ll clean the inside of my windshield. b/c he’ll remove all the turf pebbles from the car (they were so scary/gross looking)
  • free time to myself so i can relax in peace
  • timeliness. people who are on time (early) and are considerate of other people’s time.
  • studying that pays off.
  • single sprints when i can exert all my energy into 30s or so. there is a rush of freedom in running that i’ve missed b/c of lack of a gym membership
  • sunlight. so that i can see (i have terrible night vision), especially when driving in the rain. so that my mood is positive (i hate when i drive to AND from work in the dark). so that it’s warm.
  • people that push me to be better. My Better is Better.
  • My Better is Better and That’s G. well-executed commercials with strong marketing
  • the daily drop cap by jessica hirsche
  • building relationships. real convos. real people. sisters.
  • my first press check after 3.5years of working at u.pubs
  • FXA. for things like turf fields so that games are rarely cancelled. so that i can experience things like playing fball in the pouring rain.
  • making plays. catching balls. pulling flags and making tags. things that build and return confidence.
  • encouragement. help. support. things that build up a team.
  • pside. b/c mice and roaches are not nearly as scary as they used to be.
  • the fact that i have more friends that will be at turkey bowl this year. hurrah for the return of ABC!
  • tape. health insurance. things that protect my body.
  • workout music. the kind that gets your adrenaline going.
  • respect.

thankful thursday

15 Oct
  • bffs and heart-to-hearts. i’ve needed quite a few of these recently. its nice to finally sort some of these thoughts out
  • coaches who take care of their team. so i’m not the best on the field, nor am i anywhere near the level that i know i can play. but a coach that follows up with his players on and off the field is a good coach.
  • raq turning 21. finally she can hang out with me and we can dance in places i’m comfy at. but also the fact that i love her and she was the first friend i made completely on my own at UM
  • the boys. the hilarious ssb boys and especially my awesome chillin bmore boys. people that make me laugh and i’m totally comfy around
  • nights in. its a nice change of pace. especially when it’s disgusting and cold outside. sometimes my bed is the best place to be.
  • 6weeks.
  • people that pray for and with me. i’m not the most religious person nor the most approachable, but when you take the time to care for me in ways that i usually don’t, i appreciate it.
  • the new campaigns’ slow launch. its kinda nice to have the excitement drawn out over time. seeing bits and pieces here and there that i know i had a part in
  • vegetables. home-cooked meals. healthy, hearty meals. i like being well-balanced
  • the occasional splurge. recently: halloween candy.
  • soup. especially in bread bowls. it warms the stomach and the soul. i could live on soup for a long, long time
  • local roads. i’m not the most patient person to deal with, especially driving at slow speeds on highways.
  • crappy music. somehow this helps me calm down.

thankful thursday

10 Oct
  • crazy awesome opportunities that work provides me.
  • having time to hang out with RT. they’re really cool and its nice to know what’s going on.
  • food fests. taste of bethesda was pretty cool. and a good way to spend a day
  • early games. not for the whole waking up early and getting your head in the game, but for the fact that you still have the entire rest of the day to do things.
  • hanging out with the boys. its nice to just be stupid sometimes.
  • having teams to support me in good times and bad.
  • team sports.
  • my vision improved! or more like, my astigmatism got better. sweet.
  • my coworkers. its like a team thing. but different.
  • leaving work early. midday breaks. working a crammed week is stressful.
