Good morning, my friends of sunshine! I can actually say that today because it is sunny and beautiful, and not a blizzard. It’s a wonderful life.
When I woke up this morning (for the third time), I checked to see if it was a reasonable hour to get up (it was), and continued to drink a whole 1.5 liters of water. Homegirl was THIRSTY, and my throat desperately needed it. You really don’t want to hear me talk right now. I sound half amphibian.
Had to brew some tea. Obviously. Christening the new semester with some echinacea tea? Double bagged? Good plan.
As you all know every well, I kind of am obsessed with this cup. How could I not be?
Before I get ready for brunch, a quick word. I mentioned last night that I am now blessed with a giant, beautiful room all to myself. I am so stinkin excited and happy I can’t even explain to you. My roommate from last semester and I started off as good friends, but around Halloween weekend (isn’t that when it all happens?), we didn’t get along so well anymore. We come from very different families, towns; we are very different people. And that’s okay. But, when it came to a point where our room was no longer a home, something had to be done. She moved out (thank God), and now I have this giant, beautiful room all to myself because I wasn’t assigned a new roommate. Baller. status.
I’m a bubbly, social person, but when it comes to my living space, I like having a place where I can just hang out that is my own. Having a roommate was an easy transition, but after being home for a month, I realized that I would love having a single (or an apartment) with a room to call my own. I like waking up and going to sleep when I want to, and not when my roommate decides to turn out her lights or wake up and turn them back on. I love the freedom of being able to open the window curtains without asking first. And mostly, I love the solitude. When I come home from class, or into my room from the lounge, I am looking for quiet and time to myself. I get so much more work done (both school and blog work) when I am in my own space and not distracted.
I am so happy, and so excited. I’ve only said that three times, but it’s true. Freedom to use one bed for sleeping and one for a couch, two closets and two wardrobes — best. thing. ever.
Have a wonderful Sunday! And enjoy the sunshine.
Is it sunny where you are?
