*Note: My "new" life is in reference to the fact that A LOT of changes have taken place the past couple months and especially this week. i.e. Graduating from college, starting a new job, my parents leaving for the Missionary Training Center, moving into my apartment, having a boyfriend (I still need to introduce you), quitting my "student job" of 5 years, being in a brand new ward, new blog design ;) etc.
THIS WEEK I DISLIKE:
Not eating breakfast
(and sometimes lunch),
Not having a bathtub in my apartment
(Week 1 isn't even over and I'm already having withdrawals),
Not sleeping quite enough
(Yikes! I'm just asking for illness. Knock on wood),
Living in a (soon-to-be-organized) mess,
Working from 7a-9p,
Driving and driving and driving,
The convenience of eating out vs. the inconvenience of working out,

THIS WEEK I LOVE:
My loving and supportive family & friends,
My “New” Life,
These long and gloriously hot summer days,
Shopping for my own groceries
(I knew I would enjoy that),
(Thanks to my magic wand...curling iron),
Counting down to the Harry Potter 7 Part 2 Midnight Showing,
Converting people to Harry Potter,
The iPod I lovingly refer to as "myPod,"
The peace I get from FHE and Temple night
(P.S. I love my ward),
Reading Il Libro di Mormon,
My brother's GPS system,
Having the coolest parents in the universe,
Midnight calls after long work days,
Chalkboard mouse pads,
Having a cubicle,
Reading children's books out loud with a cute boy,
The awesome/hilarious people I get to intern/work with
- - -
I think it's fair to say, as I weigh the outcome of these lists, that, though life isn't perfect and I'm still working out the kinks in my new life, the blessings continue to come as I am trying to do my best and I still happen to very much love this beautiful Life that I've been blessed with...in all it's crazy freshly newness!
Add "run-on" sentences to my Love list.
I'm real good at those!
May your "Loves" always outweigh your "Dislikes"
