Today I'm Thankful That...

Postby starlooker » Wed Sep 27, 2006 5:07 pm

( I don't remember if that was the actual title of it... if anyone remembers for certain, let me know.)

First of all, obviously, today I'm thankful that PWEB is back. I've missed it. I've missed you all.

Secondly, I'm thankful it's bringing some old members out of the woodwork.

I'm thankful that I have an opportunity to repay a friend of mine a long-overdue favor.


I'm thankful that I think my professors like me.

I'm thankful that it's fall and the leaves are changing colors and it's just so very pretty out.

Today I am thankful that the break up has reintroduced me to how amazing my friends actually are.

today i am thankful that zeroguy's post just made me laugh. aloud. even though i AM dealing with relationship crap.
you snooze, you lose
well I have snozzed and lost
I'm pushing through
I'll disregard the cost
I hear the bells
so fascinating and
I'll slug it out
I'm sick of waiting
and I can
hear the bells are
ringing joyful and triumphant

Today I am thankful that when I was in middle school, I was not in the same situation my brother is. He spent about 7 hours (including a quick break to eat dinner) doing homework tonight. And he's twelve.

And I?

Am thankful that was never my life when I was that age.

For crisp fall mornings with bright blue skies and golden leaves on trees.

For the extra half hour to work on my dissertation.

For shawls.

And bright purple hairspray.

And hot glue.

There's another glimpse of sky...
There's another way to lean
into the wind, unafraid.
There's another life out there...

Today, today I am thankful for Hatrack. And spanakopita.

Today I am thankful for the writing centre, and the fourth or fifth time I've had someone dissect my writing.

Today I am thankful for Molly, who figured out the exact souce of my Latin frustration and commiserated, making me feel validated in it.

Today I am thankful for an empty apartment. I want some alone time.

Today I am thankful for a warm quilt and a mug of tea.

I am thankful that Mark took today off work. I got to spend the day with him and otherwise I would have been really sad and lonely and missing Autumn. We went shopping for lots of stuff to get ready for my bearded dragon and he got a new computer monitor. Early anniversary gifts!
