Thankful Thursday

1. My new job.
I am one of the lucky few who got a job straight out of undergrad. 
And one of the lucky few that absolutely adores it. 

2. My cheap rent.
It pays off to move in with your aunt!
[We won't talk about the fact I'm still paying my old rent...
it could be much worse with expensive rent now]

3. My new friends.
I moved. 
I was sad.
Now I'm not.
[most of the time]
Enough said.

4. My old friends.
They are wonderful.
I had an opportunity to catch up with them last weekend 
at a bridal shower, and an informal reunion.

5. Starting New. 
So many new beginnings.
So many things that could have gone wrong.
So many things that have just gone right.

I am thankful to be alive! :)

I have decided to take up Yoga.

The problem I ran into, though, is that I don't have a gym membership and I don't really want to work one into my budget quite yet. (#nolongerapoorcollegestudentbutnowapoorteacher) (#havefunreadingthat)

So I did a little search and found a great set of videos for beginners (like me). 

This woman named Esther Ekhart put them together and in my I-know-nothing-about-yoga opinion, she did an excellent job. It really just eases you into Yoga without killing your body! I had tried Yoga with a roommate about a year ago and quit soon after because whatever video we found absolutely tore my poor body apart. It was too advanced. These are just perfect! 

Here is the first video, and if you go to YouTube you can find the other four.

Just Another Day at Work

This priceless conversation happened at lunch with one of my precious kids:

Me: "Fabio, how old are you?"

Fabio: "5"

Me: "Cool! We have all ages here! Ju-ju is 1, Aiah is 2, Mehrad is 3, Aleah is 4, and you're 5! How old do you think I am?"

Fabio: "Probably 6."

I love his logic. :)

i need a hurrr cut

It has been way too long. Like, embarassingly too long. I don't want to talk about it.

But I DO need my hairs cut!

This is what I look like:


I have tried growing out my bangs but I'm afraid my forehead is too big and rectangle.

So maybe bangs again?

One time I also put random blond streaks in my hair (no not highlights), so I'm thinking that might be done again.

The other question is...HOW short?

I'm always afraid to go too short. I love my long hair. Like. Seriously love. But at the same time I really like change...Oh the dilemmas of being a girl!

What do you like to do when you want a change for your hair?

hunger games.

I'm so obsessed.

Only 50 days until the movie comes out!

And guess what?! 
They posted a new trailer today.
 I was sitting alone in my room watching it. 
When it finished, I literally screamed out loud from excitement. 
Don't judge. 

[if you're reading this in google reader, the embedded video isn't showing up! so come on over to my bog to watch the new trailer!!!]

I read all three books in a week and a half. 
I was also working two jobs-about 60 hours a week-at the time.

I dare you to tell me how you're more obsessed than me. 
Or just tell me you'll join me in my same level of obsessive-ness!
