Mitten State!

19 Mar

WOO HOO!! As I was walking to meet my friend, Cara, for coffee today, I stopped by my mailbox like I do everyday to check for post and what was waiting for me?! My Mitten State t-shirt!! Of course I got mine to represent Grand Rapids. A portion of the sale of my shirt goes to charity so I’ve done a good deed for the day. : ) I’m so excited to wear it tonight!

another t-shirt post haha- yeahhhhhh GR!

I know I’m not alone when I sometimes feel like nothing seems to be going my way. There isn’t a soul on this earth that hasn’t felt that way before. Maybe it’s because I’ve been feeling that way lately (& maybe it’s because I’m running a fever & can only hope I have enough coffee grounds in this apartment to keep me awake all night to complete the work & studying I need done for tomorrow) but I thought I’d throw together a hodge-podge collection of things I’ve found online that make me laugh, smile & sometimes provide a very necessary distraction from the troubling things in life. I hope they help you too when you’re having just “one of those days”. : )

This one has been my absolute favorite lately. Michelle & I can’t stop watching/quoting it:

Have you ever heard of the Blood Type Diet? This is crazy.

Create your own Jackson Pollock masterpiece.

Hopefully you’ll enjoy all of these as much as I do. I have no new photography to share with you but in light of the holiday spirit (notice the snow on my page), I’ll leave you with this:

“People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel” -Maya Angelou

Remember that quote whenever someone’s made you upset, feel taken advantage of, or hurt. Be respectful and kind to others. It will get you farther in life that you could ever imagine.
