For Grins, Giggles, and a Paycheck

Home sweet home! some extent. Abilene/ACU is my second home. I adore it here. It's small and adorable and dusty and doesn't have the craziness of city life. Although it does have bad drivers...but that's not important. The important part is that I'm BACK! And I have a job. Yaaay! Unfortunately it's MWF from 5 am to 9am. Currently I'm a-writin' this blog during my work shift because I have nothing to actually do. So awesome. I get paid to blog. You know what else I get paid for? Eating crackers, animating, listening to my iTunes, (homework when the time comes I'm sure), and whatever else I decide to do. I think one thing that I like about this early shift is that fact that it's so early that I most likely won't have to do any paperwork, answer the phone or...desky things. It'd be good experience to have though.

And with that I stole from my beloved Carrot and her blog about 10 things that make you happy! Let's take a look shall we?

1. My Jesus! (that's a given though :P)
2. My family (even on the bad days)
3. Dr Pepper! Really, because I'm that addicted.
4. Horse back riding. Have you tried it? WHY NOT.
5. Being outside. Unless it's so hot you can't breathe and are sweating buckets.
6. Drawing for people and watching their reactions
7. Air conditioning. Especially in Texas. (even though I like it outside.)
8. My 3rd floor creepers (yaaaay!)
9. When my hair has a great hair day :P
10. John Powell :D

NOW. I suggest you go make a list of 10 happy things. RIGHT NOW. Because you know you'll put it off later and later then never do it at all and you won't be happy. Ever. Again.

I'm so glad you like your job so far! And another nice thing about the early shift is that you won't have a lot of people around causing noisy distractions at your desk, so you'll actually be able to focus on what you're doing. I can't wait to see you again! Admittedly I'll be sad to leave home, I've kind of gotten used to being back, but I know I'll get right back into the rhythm of things once I arrive back at good old ACU. Sophomore year, huh? And I can't wait to get settled in the new dorm! That'll be really fun and exciting, and I'm sure we'll all have to get used to have a roommate this time, but I think we'll be just fine. :D

Now, as for the 10 things that make me happy, let's see...
1. My Jesus! (that's a given though :P)
2. Family, because they're always there and always have been
3. Being vegan, because I couldn't live any other way :)
4. Writing, because it brings my fantasies to life
5. Time in the morning when everyone else is asleep and I get time to myself to think, pray, and enjoy the coolness of the day before the sun gets too high
6. Reading, because I get to bring it to life in my mind, and I can learn all sorts of new things
7. Feeling clean! Shower, floss, brushing my teeth, clean clothes, and a clean, organized room make for a great day!
8. Getting good grades: it's always been a great booster to my mood, ALWAYS!
9. Recycling, organics, and giving stuff I don't need to people who want it, so much better than throwing it away (GO GREEN, yay!)
10. Listening to good music, it helps my imagination flow :)

How very true!

And I can't wait for you to come back either! Gosh I've missed everyone. I was kind of sad to leave home too, but once I was on the highway and headed here I just got all excited :D
