Silver Lining: eight

October 7, 2011


Things that made me happy yesterday:

1. the rain. the kind of rain that had something to say, and took all day to say it, and didn't stop until it was said. 

2. my grandpa's umbrella. you see, oregonians don't believe in umbrellas on principle, but i grabbed one yesterday when i saw the rain because i was in a major hurry and didn't have time to change my outfit. also, my water-proof gear has been slowly disappearing since i moved to a desert. by the end of the day i was using the umbrella as a cane. i couldn't help it. way too much fun to worry about what other people think.

3. as i was having breakfast yesterday, i remembered that mom used to put sliced bananas in her cheerios. i love it when i remember things about her.

4. typing without capitals

5. going to a fancypants meeting with important people like senators and justices and even cecil o samuelson himself. it was the most boring meeting i've ever attended, but it made me feel smart all the same.

6. this craft project that's drying right now:

7. my 14 hour campus day turned out to only be a 13 and a half hour campus day. it was so great to only be apart from sam from 7:30am to 9:00pm, not 9:30pm.

8. yesterday was our 2-month anniversary. we didn't do much because we had to be apart all day, but that doesn't matter. being with sam is always the best part of my day. 


  1. So fun! I wish I could have been there to make fun of you for using a cane on campus...

  2. Totally agree! Umbrellas are for sissies.
