"Forget your troubles, c'mon get happy, you better chase all your cares away. Shout hallejulah, c'mon get happy get ready for the judgment day."
Lately I have been very whiny. So I think that I should make a list of things I am thankful for. Some of these are VERY SERIOUS and some are just things that I honestly am thankful for no matter how dumb.
I am thankful for my angelic ball of sunshine and shenanigans, Lady Jane Gray. She loves me enough to wake me up at 4:30am every morning to make sure I am not late to work. It's not her fault she doesn't know that I only work three days. She hates posing for photos...
I am thankful for iCarly because I instantly respond to its joyfulness. Like the reaction I have to coffee or brownies.
I am thankful for a church where, even though I can't get involved, I want to get involved. It took long enough.
I am thankful for my mom and everything she has done for me... every book recommendation, every carefully picked curriculum. She taught me from a young age that Jane Eyre and Star Trek are important. She likes to monologue about politics. I'd be pretty boring and dumb without her. The above picture is an accurate representation of our relationship. Totally.
I am thankful for Pratt Saturday Morning Art Classes. Pratt looks like Hogwarts and it's such a lovely way to spend the autumn and I learned a ton there. It's clear now I'll never to to art school, but Pratt is just enough that I don't mind too much.
I am thankful for living a subway ride away from glorious Downtown Brooklyn and a slightly longer subway ride away from Manhattan. I don't know what my life would be without my monthly museum trips.
I am thankful for Hermione Granger and Dana Scully who remind me daily that hard work, determination, dedication, integrity, resourcefulness, decisiveness and a ton more scary character qualities are what it really takes to be a Strong Female (of) Character.
I am thankful for having a job I don't hate at a young age which is teaching me all about good work ethics. I am thankful that my coworkers and the majority of the costumers are really terribly nice people who I am glad to know.
X-Files guuuhh I have been rendered speechless OKAY? Doggett and Reyes = too happy to exist on this gloomy show. Mulder and Scully = too perfect to exist in this dark and loveless world. Agent Harrison = too much lip-liner to exist in 2002.
