Reasons why today was great:
1. When I woke up this morning, the sun was shining through the blinds promising a sunny day and no need for a coat 
2. My roommate Hillary let me wear her brand new scarf {such a sweet girl}
3. A friend surprised me with a bag of the Dove chocolates with the cute sayings on the inside of the wrapper
4. It's Monday which means it's a fresh start to a new week. 
5. I got to sleep in
6. Thanksgiving is a week and a couple days away 
7. There is currently an awesome fort in my living room thanks to Carly
8. I grew a spine {for once...crazy, I know} and made a hard choice. I'm going to stick with it and I'm satisfied with that. 
9. I have amazing roommates who will listen to me go on and on for days about the same topic. 
10. A not-wanting-to-be-written history paper has been pushed back and is due in a week and half. 
11. I go home in a month and 2 days to see my family!
12. This guy named Kyle ridiculously lucky to be marrying my best friend in a little over a month. And I'm so happy for them
13. I realized that I haven't forgotten how to make friends and that I actually know quite a few people in my apartment complex {yayy I'm not going to become a hermit!}
14. Saw people stringing Christmas lights on the trees on campus today
15. When I was walking home, the sky was gorgeous with its purples and yellows

 But most of all, I have no idea where my life is going to go or how I'm going to end up but I'm ok with that. I'm not scared {as much} anymore. Life will always work out. 

That's all for today. Happy Monday everyone!
