A. Appreciate the rain. Other people have so much more or less of it than they need. Just appreciate yours.
B. Remember to use I-statements when expressing your discomfort with someone else.
- Example: “I feel angry because you ate all the pie, dude!”
- Example: “I feel happy because I scored three goals on that group of children, which means I win.”
- Example: “When you poke me in the side, I feel tickled.”
- And so on.
C. Consider the consequences of your actions.
- Like if you eat too many blueberries and spinach, it might give you the runs.
- Or if you get into the shower with your glasses on, they might get wet.
D. Re-use zip-lock bags.
E. There can never be too many raspberries or blueberries, despite what I said earlier.
F. Trust yourself.
Sometimes on Thursday or Fridays I drive from Missoula to Trapper Creek Job Corps. Then I drive back the same day. It’s a 140 mile round trip. Sometimes I have interns with me. The company makes the miles go by more quickly. Sometimes the interns are very nervous sitting next to me for the whole drive and consequently compete to see who gets the back seat.
The Taylor Swift song is better than I expected. (Someone else played it).
But I prefer Lorde. She’s the discovery of the year so far. And the people who received a link to her song in a text from me are winners. Request and I’ll send it to you as well because I happen to like everyone enough to think you’re winners. I mean, if I have your number. Like, that’s a thing.
Ok. Team. Tomorrow will be my confessional/exciting post, I promise.
Tonight I will say this: I made strawberry blueberry muffins with coconut oil that are awesome and entirely whole wheat. I am wearing a sweater tank top with a peace sign because it’s my new favorite shirt. And I am going to a birthday party and also to a concert. It’s pretty much a big night. Like, whoa.
In all seriousness, coconut beer is incredible. And blueberry, but not the overly sweet kind. I believe that everyone should be picky about beer.
Mmkay. Thanks. Bye.
