Three things that made me happy today

1)Travel plans:
Graduate school and unemployment notwithstanding, I booked plane tickets for a July trip to the beach! One whole week of Atlantic sea breezes with some of my coolest relatives. This is going to be so marvelous...
And if that's not enough to make me faint dead away with happiness, immediately following is a weekend trip to Gettysburg with some of my Purdue nearest and dearest. I don't know which is more exciting, 10 solid road hours of catching up over Mumford & Sons and a cooler-full of grapes or two whole days immersed in the Civil War with fellow history nerds. You're right, it's impossible to choose.

2) Normally I talk about sports um...never but tonight my favorite Purdue basketball player got traded in the draft to my favorite NBA team. JaJuan Johnson + Boston Celtics = LOVE. I now care more about basketball than I ever thought humanly possible.

I don't know who I am anymore.

Oh wait, yes I do.
I am the person who is too busy playing Angry Birds to write a real post. I am on a serious three-star winning streak so obviously I can't be bothered with real life.

And that's the way it is: Thursday, June 23, 2011.

I know, Walter Cronkite is so rolling over in his grave right now.

3) This:


  1. **SOB!** i want ellie to visit ME! **jealous pout**

  2. I feel like maybe you and I are soulmates? I'm a HUGE sports fan at the moment....of baseball (WHAAAT!?!). UVA's baseball team is playing in the college world series and could make it to the final. So I've been WATCHING baseball. Crazy I know! And do you know what I've been doing on the other half of my screen while watching baseball? Playing angry birds. This is spooky.

  3. FYI, E'twaun got drafted by the Celtics too, in the second round. He might not be your favorite Purdue player like Jajuan, but still, nothing like adding another Boilermaker to your favorite basketball team.

  4. @Ariana but my dear, I get to see you at not one but TWO conventions this year!! fret not! :)

    @Jami haha baseball and angry birds. yes, we may be soulmates. tell me, did you recently have a tetris addiction? because I did, until I discovered angry birds

    @Catherine aaagh I just saw that when I woke up this morning! E'twaun is my SECOND favorite player!! SO AWESOME. Is this how you feel about football?? ;)

  5. Well...based on your use of capitalization and exclamation marks, it's probably close...but until you physically have to leave a room because you are too upset that the "Peyton Manning just threw an interception" basketball equivalent occurred, you aren't quite there.

    But I'm glad you're happy!!! It's exciting! And I had no idea you liked the Celtics :)


I love to hear what you're thinking! Thanks for the comment love. :)
