tomorrow is a travel day
things I’m looking forward to: people watching in the Portland airport buying a new book at Powell’s warm chocolate chip cookies twice during the day a quick layover in Denver being up in the air things I’m not looking forward to: getting home after midnight leaving Oregon worrying that my suitcase is overweight not getting any sleep on my flights

what my mind does when I try to sleep
me: oh this pillow is so comfortable! I can't wait to fall asleep.
myself: no! you can't fall asleep yet! what if (fill in the blank) will need you for something!!

I turned 25. I woke up feeling no different than yesterday when I was 24. but by the end of the day, after a strong run in the morning, birthday voice mails, text messages, and wall posts, and wonderful birthday surprises throughout the day (Starbucks, a dinner serenade, and frozen yogurt), I felt confident. I think 25 is going to be a pretty great year. and, I think I now know what 25 is...

right now I'm...
working on some spreadsheets for work enjoying the quiet of the basement at the Upsilon chapter house watching Masters Sunday (this afternoon is going to be so exciting!) trying not to think about the meetings I have at 3pm which are going to mess up my Masters Sunday viewing
