While texting Hassaun this morning (shooting the shit, like you do), I told him that after the hormonal roller-coaster that was last week, I am kicking this week in the ass. He then responded with "So, you are going all Fight Club on this week?" yes, yes I am. I have been feeling slightly overwhelmed lately, and it is all my own doing. Planning parties two weeks in a row, a trip out to Ypsi to see a band, trying to hit the gym, taking care of the house, tackling all of the projects, while trying desperately to get caught up at work. This is what happens when you are an overachieving idealist, you never sleep. So! This week I decided to tap my inner Rory Gilmore and make a bunch of lists, then started to work at them. I have piles of things to get through, messes to clean, and loads of ideas to put into action, and I have no idea when/if I will ever cross off everything on these lists, but I am choc full of coffee and feeling ambitious.
Lately I have been trying to stay in the mindset of looking at the positive aspects in life, instead of dwelling on the negative. Let me tell you, that shit is hard. It is so easy to tell someone else to do it, but there are days when after a few things don't go as planned and it is all I can do to keep from bawling my eyes out (cue raccoon-faced Sara, because lets be honest, I cry. A lot). Some days. weeks, months, will always go better than others, but just because one month is crap, it doesn't take away how amazing a past one was. Forgetting about the good times just makes things dour, and that is bad new bears.
For instance, lets take a look at this outfit: I may have worn this stupid shirt for the past three Fourth of Julys, but it still holds up. I may have been ten pounds lighter the last time I wore shorts this short in public, but these are cute shorts. My legs look like I was playing hours of softball before these photos were taken, but bruises are just proof that I like to play outside! Okay, they are just proof that I am anemic, but whatever. I have no idea why I am making such derpy faces in these pics, but my hair stayed curled all damn day for once! #KeepItOnTheUP
Also! Purple hair + a harness make me feel like I look like a superhero. And sometimes, you just gotta be your own hero.
