note to self…

drinking even two small cups of coffee is not a good thing when you are already struggling with mild anxiety.

My life is a whirlwind as of late. There are so many changes, firsts and lasts happening and I really don’t know what to do with them.

Some changes…
1. My nail color
2. Grocery stores that I shop at
3. Soda drinking habits
4. Local yarn shop
5. Graduate school plans
6. Relationship status
7. Becoming a vegetarian
8. Feminine protection plan

Some firsts…
1. Traveling to a foreign country alone
2. Paying rent
3. Buying my own groceries
4. Cooking all my own food
5. Summer in Seattle
6. Knitting with recycled yarn
7. Episode 1, season 3 of Gilmore Girls
8. Regression analysis on REAL data

Some lasts…
1. SMC staff (monday night)
2. 1:1’s with three of my favorite girls
3. Living in college dorms
4. Eating in Gwinn
5. Staff planning time with Hannah and Anthony

As you can see, my head is full of things and I feel like I am going crazy. As my wonderful friend pointed out to me the other day, there is good anxiety, bad anxiety and normal stuff on these lists. Too bad my body can’t tell the difference.

This is how I feel inside…

I went to see my friends in the hospital yesterday, not because there was anything wrong but because there is a new baby in the world. Welcome baby Harlow! As I held her is was weird to think that less than 24 hours ago she was still in her mother’s warm womb where she had been for an agonizing 42 weeks (it must have been comfy in there). Imagine if we actually remembered our birthing experience, what a traumatic part of life… No wonder Freud thought all mental dysfunctions could be traced back to this epic day.

Well, maybe Freud was a little wrong about that… still, it was a pretty awesome day.

Just to celebrate the fact that I have learned to insert videos into posts here is a short clip to get us thinking…

I found this on Sociological Images…

Tonight I went to a Mariners game with some friends (my former SMC staff to be exact). Great fun was had by all. I even ate the infamous garlic fries for once…

Needless to say, the game was a little bit of a downer. I am still glad I went though. There is really nothing better than time spent with friends who know you. Especially after a week like this one.

Thanks PiaNickShelbyKristaLauraMadelineTrevor, you guys are seriously the best!
