things that are making me happy today

1. living at this house, with this cool group of girls.
let's be real, every day isn't paradise, but there are a lot more good days than bad days. we have fun, we eat good food, we vent to each other, we laugh, we cry, we wonder if it's all worth it, then we realize... it is.

2. my sister
This was a picture of us from this weekend, right before the football game. my parents went home, leaving Natalie & I in Athens alone. We sat in some friends club level seats with a blanket and some boiled peanuts, then drank enough to forget how COLD it was in the shade. She's spectacular.

3. Conan's back!

I'm watching it right now. I like him. I like his jokes. I like his attitude.

4. Getting postcards from my mom when she travels. She's sent me cards from Paris, Rome and Brussels. Even though I don't get them until about a week after she's home, it's nice.

5. My new water bottle that has a filter built in, because I don't trust the water from the UGA water fountains. You can call it excess, I call it necessary.

6. Gaining an extra hour to sleep over the weekend.
