Good Times

In honor of getting a new laptop {finallllly}
I thought it was only appropriate to take a few of those typical photo booth pics
(what can I say, it's a addicting!!)

I have 5 more days off with my family, 
getting to see friends,
and I found a new type of mascara to try out today =)

He came up to me,
his eyes still to big for his face,
and said, pointing,
"Guess what? God, he, he made everybody's eyelashes."

And I envy him, smiling up at me,
so enthralled with the wonders of this world.

Makes me wonder what I've missed, forgetting to look for the
Simple, but beautiful parts of this life

Happy Thoughts

so often people tell you "take every thought captive" or
"think happy thoughts",
"choose to be postive"

which is all well and good, as you as you realize, changing your thoughts takes action.

been struggling with negativity lately, thoughts that run like images across the back of my eyes, a carousel of color, a stream of frustration.

i've started deliberately  coming up with "happy thoughts" writing them down if i need to, until they replace the yucky ones -

:: becoming a runner. early morning runs, with music in my ears and silence in the air

:: dresses and heels. but yet tshirts and converse. planning outfits is so much fun

:: going back to ecuador, to volunteer or work, i don't care, as long as i'm there

:: a boy who likes and adventure and cuddling. preferably with nice arms..just sayin ;)

:: a photoshoot in Northern CA, I have no idea why, but hey, it makes me happy

it's a battle, owning your thoughts instead of them owning you --
but one well worth fighting, i think

it's finals week, yo
if I wasn't so busy,
I would laugh at all of us freaking out.

Personally, I work better under pressure ;)

I used to sleep whenever I had the chance, crawling back into sheets still holding my shape, to hide in dark, lost hours

But now I find myself staying awake, even when it hurts, because I'm afraid of what I won't be there for. Which is funny --

I used to think there was nothing to miss.

I think Hope is waiting for the little moments that make everything worth it.
