Taking-a-picture-in-the-bathroom-mirror-so-that-everyone-can-be-in-it awesomeness


I apparently describe things as “alright” and “okay”  too much. And apparently these are not appropriate adjectives to describe how something is if I enjoy it (i.e. I saw the Blue Man Group with SLJ, she asked me if I like it, I did and I said it was alright, and she got annoyed). She told me that I “live a life of mediocrity.” So I thought about it and have come up with a list of things that are so amazingly, outstandingly, spectacularly, magnificently, mind-blowingly, wonderfully, unbelievably, overwhelmingly,  marvelously, wondrously awesome that I cannot even use enough adverbs to describe how chock full of awesomeness these things are.  

20. Nana’s house– childhood memories awesomeness
19. Milk chocolate– melt-in-your-mouth awesomeness
18. Unicorns– Pets-you-wish-you-had-when-you-were-a-five-year-old-girl awesomeness
17. Tie-dye– multi-colored, psychedelic awesomeness
16. Green Mountain Coffee– fair-trade awesomeness
15. David Sedaris’s “The Santa Land Diaries”- best-Christmas-story-ever-told-since-the-first-Christmas  awesomeness
14. Panera’s Broccoli Cheddar Soup– OMG-that-might-be-the-greatest-thing-ever-to-be-poured-from-a-ladle awesomeness
13. Laundry right out of the dryer– warm-and-cuddly awesomeness
12. Wrinkle-free shirts– never-have-to-burn-yourself-on-a-hot-iron-again awesomeness
11. Ben & Jerry’s– delicious, high-fat, environmentally-friendly awesomeness
10. Stephen Colbert– Nerdy wit awesomeness
9. Bubbles– popable awesome
8. Daffodils– first-sign-of-spring awesomeness
7. Sundresses– comfy-yet-dressy awesomeness
6. Oatmeal– good-for-you-breakfast awesomeness
5. Sales– Can’t-believe-this-is-85%-off-and-in-my-size awesomness
4. The Rocket Summer– happiness-through-the-headphones awesomeness
3. Shooting stars– Close-your-eyes-and-make-a-wish awesomeness
2.  UNICEF– saving-the-children-of-the-world awesomeness
1. My friends– delightfully awkward, ridiculously dependable awesomeness  

So there you go, things that make my life more than mediocre.

Seal of Awesomeness from raspberryrunner.files.wordpress.com

A few weeks back I wrote a post entitled “Reality Bites” which was pretty much an abridged version of how my life was spiraling down the toilet. I am happy to say that since then, I am no longer sleeping on my parents’ couch; my future roommate and I have secured housing for next month; and I even have a job offer (ok, so it’s a part-time, close to minimum wage deal, but it seems like a pretty nice set-up and I’m not going to lie, I’m excited about it).

Moreover, that group project that was giving me legit nightmares (cold-sweat, wake-up-in-a-panic, oh-my-Lord-where-is-the-light-switch-I-think-I’m-awake-but-the-evil-is-still-here nightmares) is almost over. This Friday, it gets copied and sent out to the judges. Next week, we’ll present and then done. So the fear is subsiding and I’m feeling good about the rest of the semester.

Plus, I’ve had like three hot chai teas today. So life is pretty magical right about now.

P.S. If you know where the title of this post is stolen from, you deserve an official seal of awesomeness.
