It's that kind of day where you want to curl up in a ball and snuggle with a blanket. The kind of day you wish you could turn on a good movie and enjoy a cup of tea. The kind of day where its cold and grey outside and only thing getting you through the day is the sheer notion that its hump day!
Hump day. The day in the week where I'm up early (thanks to my 8am class), but have the rest of the day free. It's the day where I challenge myself to get stuff done, so that my weekend can have a little more time of 'doing nothing', and less time 'doing something'. It's also the day that separates the beginning of the week, to the end of the week and its one day closer to Friday.
Hump day is indeed a good day. You know what else is good?
::Friends. The kind that come in all different shapes and sizes, ages and genders, interests and experiences and still gather together to enjoy a rockin pub crawl. I must say, we lookin fine.
:: Little surprises delivered right to your desk by one of your housemates :)
:: Laughter. Pure laughter. Sometimes even by yourself in a Dollarama aisle. While looking at Valentines Day decorations, I stepped back so a lady could get by and ran right into a ducks beak. I jumped a little and then burst into laughter. Seriously why are there so many of them, why are they so creepy and what are they used for?
:: Tea. Served in the cutest little dishes at the most quaint downtown cafe. Adorable eh?
:: Cheering on the 49ers in the NFL playoffs! I was watching the game while sitting at my desk doing some homework, a beer cracked open and my (okay, Grants) jersey on. At amazing plays I would text or tweet my friend Jon so it felt like he was here. We didn't come out on top, but it was an awesome game!
:: This little girl. Smiles, laughter, deep blue eyes. Oh she's pretty awesome.
:: Snow forts. JD and I built a snow fort on Saturday and I must say it's pretty cool. Using non-packing snow was a wee challenge, however with the help of shovels and a green bin we accomplished our goal.
:: Journals...and finding them 4 years later. Why yes, exactly 4 years from this day (next month), I got accepted to Brock University! I share this with you now because next month I'll be returning from Dominican- the trip I'm taking to celebrate my University accomplishments! I remember the day as if were yesterday. I remember calling my Mom at work, crying in celebration, dancing around the living room with joy and celebration. It's hard to believe how fast theses years have gone, all the things I've learned and memories made!
Well I'm off. Happy hump day to you, and you, and you.
