I officially start CPE in less than one week and the first "official" day of fall is tomorrow. I have shifted into "back to school" mode, which is almost like an autopilot for me. I guess that's what happens when you are a student for almost 20 years! And in keeping with that spirit, I decided to reflect on the many revelations I have had this summer.
Sometimes it's nice to simply float
There can be "too much of a good thing"
I need to loosen up and dance a little more (literally)
I need to eat less red meat
Being a pickle farmer is hard work
I really do love air conditioning
I can't wait to go back to camp next year
I have the best friends in the world
It's nice to have a place to come home to
Baking is actually very rewarding
My beach towel snuggie is awesome!
I really don't love swimming that much
I would probably be happy if I didn't have to ever drive again
Cheese grits are a magical food
Even though I know it's bad for the environment, I really like sunscreen in a spray can
The more I read, the more I am able to write
I don't think I will ever get over my hatred of ironing
Having very short hair seems to work best for me
Don't read trashy books before getting your blood pressure checked
My vision is better than I thought it was (but I still want new contacts)
Life is about the journeys and adventures
It's ok, and often necessary, to say "I'm pretty darn good at that!"
Happiness is a warm puppy
I am a control freak
It's fun to learn new things
Reading is a great way to pass the time
Wrapping gifts is really rewarding
Glitter will now and forever be banned from my craft supplies
It never gets easy to say goodbye
Sunsets are amazing
I am incredibly blessed!
