8 Things I Need Less Of

It's *8Things Thursday again! This week it is 8 things I need less of. It ties in with the Do Less Revolution going on.
Here are my 8 things...

1. Stress
2. Commitments
3. Homework
4. Headaches
5. Self Doubt
6. Cold Weather & Rain
7. Worry
8. Sickness

Can you tell that all of these are connected? I am stressed because I have too many commitments and too much homework. The stress causes the headaches. I'm still sick from when I woke up with that cold on Sunday, and it won't go away because of the cold & rain! The self doubt... well that's normal, and so is the worry. I mean, I am graduating in 3 weeks!

I'm just not having a very good day. I don't mean to sound like a pessimist, but the next few days don't look like they'll be any better either.

Some Of My Favorite Things

Guess what? This is my 200th post! I didn't know I'd done that many! I've been thinking about what some of my favorite things are lately... I guess now is as good a time as any to post them. Some are odd, but oh well.

Yup, it's probably my all-time favorite food. I don't think I could ever get sick of eating it. I'm picky, though. I don't like homemade mac-n-cheese. I've grown up with the boxed stuff, and I just like it better than any homemade kind I've tried.

Disney Movies
I am such a little kid... I've grown up with Disney movies and I still love watching them. The other day when I said I wanted to just sit and watch a movie? I watched The Rescuers. My favorite Disney movie of all time is Pete's Dragon, though. When we were little my cousin and I used to ask to watch "Pizza Dragon!" And we always fell asleep watching it. I still end up falling asleep half way through it.

The Sound of Peepers
It's just one of those comforting sounds... I love falling asleep listening to them.

The Smell of Cigarette Smoke
This is my comfort smell. Weird, right? Most people hate this smell! All the adults I've grown up around smoke, though. It brings back memories and makes me feel relaxed. I know how bad it is; but there's no stopping them from smoking, and I like being around my family.

These are just a few of my favorite things. I could list more... but I've got blondies to bake!

Prom Pics!

I finally have prom pics to post!

I actually had a minor freak out right before my mom tried to take pictures of me. I started crying because my hair would not do what I wanted it to! So, there aren't many of just me. Honestly- I don't really like how I look in any of these pics. xD I hated all the picture taking before prom, I had fun once we got there at least!

A big group of us at prom, notice that I ended up pulling my hair into a ponytail? I couldn't deal with that frizzy mess!

Another group pic, before prom though.

Wow, I'm worn out! We had a long three-day weekend, but I didn't get to catch up on much. Honestly I'm not sure what I would have wanted to catch up on! My weekend was busy but I don't think I could have had more fun than I did unless we had gone to a parade today and I had bought that little Buddha statue at the flea market for $1.

Saturday I was babysitting all day. No matter how much I adore Keagan (and I do!) he knows how to tire me out. What 2 1/2 year-old doesn't, though? We went to the fish ladder and played in this wicked awesome park that had an old school merry-go-round. We had so much fun!

Sunday I woke up with a cold! Not just a little "oh my nose if stuffy" cold, but a knock me on my butt "I wanna go back to bed, I feel like sh*t!" cold. I took a bunch of cold meds, went to visit Grandpa Ben's grave, went to the flea market, and had a nice nap in the afternoon. Then I managed to stay up until 11 last night going fishing with a small chunk of my family, and then playing a Disney trivia game at my Aunt Jen's (I won! xD)

When we came home last night the light on our phone was blinking. A message from Keagan's mom! I ended up babysitting him again from about 9 this morning into the early afternoon. He's so much fun that I can't complain! I really am ready to just sit and watch a movie or something, though.
