1,001 Beautiful things: Day 8

5 Mar

Clean sheets — I always sleep so much better that first night after my sheets are washed. I have no idea why, because I wash my sheets once a week, and I usually shower before bed. It isn’t like I ever allow my sheets to get nasty, but there is something amazing about curling up in warm, freshly laundered sheets that makes me happy.

1,001 Beautiful Things: Day 7

4 Mar

Friday. Friday is a beautiful, beautiful thing. I get to sleep in tomorrow! Friday means that classes are over, and all I have to worry about is getting to bed, and contemplating what I’m going to do tomorrow night. It means that maybe, I will wake up in the morning and not have my nose all messed up! Yay!

Friday. A beautiful thing.

1,001 Beautiful Things: Days five and six

3 Mar

I’m attempting to die at the moment, and I fell asleep with my computer last night! I’m drinking lots of tea and overdressing like mad to maintain my usual all-out speed, but I’m soooo ready for the weekend!

#5: Mailing out something of importance. Yesterday I mailed out my transfer application to Georgetown University. I’m at a community college at the moment, and I’m a bit nervous about my chances of being accepted. However, I’m almost relieved that it is out of my hands, although I keep remembering about a billion and a half things I could have/should have added to make it stronger.

It is finished, and now I sit and panic.

#6: Dinosaur egg oatmeal. I don’t like oatmeal, but my siblings love it. I walked out to the kitchen to get coffee this morning, and my sister was heating water. I saw her bowl on the table, and her oatmeal had little speckled eggs on it. I watched her pour the water and stir it in, and then something awesome happened: The eggs hatched into little dinosaur shapes. It was adorable.

These are the things that make life beautiful.

1,001 Beautiful Things: Day Four

1 Mar

That clean face feeling.

I love makeup — the ritual of it in the morning, going out and feeling like I look good.

I love removing it at the end of the day more.

I am a night person, and I tend to remove my makeup as soon as I get all of my “official” business done — classwork, etc. After my makeup is off, my teeth are brushed, and my moisturizer/lip balm has been applied the night becomes mine. I relax, post here, and read other blogs. It is a huge part of my wind-down time at night, and I miss it on those nights I get lazy.

I curl up in bed, smell the lightly herbal scent of my moisturizer, and smile.

Beautiful.

1,001 Beautiful Things: Day three

28 Feb

Coming home to a pet that is super excited for you to be back! I came home today, and my cat wanted affection. She looked at me, did this cute little purr/meow thing while bobbing her head, and ran into my bedroom. I ended up doing some homework in bed, because she wanted to cuddle under the covers, and I appreciated her need to nuzzle.

Beautiful.

1,001 beautiful things — Day two.

Getting compliments from an older person of the opposite sex.

Today, I spent some time at my grandparent’s house, chatting with one of my grandfather’s oldest friends. He complimented me a few different times, and I found myself accepting them without a whole lot of argument.

I guess it was because there was nothing expected — he is happily married, well into his eighties, and was being nice. He wasn’t hitting on me, and wasn’t expecting me to say something nice in return. He was doing it out of honesty.

Beautiful.

1,001 beautiful things — Day one.

27 Feb

I’m a downer. I don’t mean to be, but I take a very realistic view of the world — and the world isn’t always sunshine and kittens. I want to work on my negative outlook, and I think this is a good way to do it. I’m insanely nervous about a few things, and this will allow me to find one bit of beauty in every day — one beautiful thing.

New pajamas — I love hooded pajama tops, and I bought a new one yesterday. It is fairly boring, Jockey with blue stripes, but it is super soft. I’m at my grandmum’s, I just finished all of my homework, and I’m sitting here, warm and ready for bed.

Beautiful.
