A Few (Very) Random Observations

Well, I've made a few observations recently.  I'm just gonna put it all out there.

1.  I prefer talk radio over music when I'm driving long distances. 
When did I become a 65 year old?  But seriously, it holds my attention better than music most of the time. Weird.

2.  I'm officially not a "young person" anymore.
Proof?  The other day a family friend told me that her daughter asked for an Eminem t-shirt for Christmas. And I literally thought she meant M&M's... as in "melt in your mouth, not in your hand..."
Yeah.  That actually happened.  And I felt about a million years old when I realized what she was talking about.

3. I saw a few friends when I was in Louisiana for the holidays.  
And I've missed them.  A lot. 

4.  I am so glad I was a member of a sorority in college.  
The girls I met there are truly some of my best friends and I know I will be able to count on them for the rest of my life to be there in good times and bad.

5.  Even though I feel old, I really am young.
Everyone says that college days are the best days of your life, but I don't think that's true.  I had a great time in college but I know there are many more happy times ahead of me as I enter the period of life when my friends are starting to get married and have families.

6. I really can't believe Tennessee lost their bowl game tonight.
And in such poor form.  It was just like the LSU game all over again.  Even though that game ended in my favor, I still felt a little bad for Tennessee fans- not really for the coach since he apparently can't count correctly.  But I know how it feels to lose badly.  And it doesn't feel good.  

7.  I'm going back to Tennessee tomorrow for a few days.
I'm supposed to finally get to meet my best friend's boyfriend.  I'm pretty excited about this considering they've been together like 2 years (I think??) and I still haven't met him!

8. I saw Black Swan.
And it was odd.  But mostly because I think I actually followed/ got it. I think this because it really didn't blow my mind as much as I thought it would. Hmm...

9.  I know I said this recently, but I really do love you people out there who read this blog.
Especially random (pictureless) posts like this one.  You guys rock.

10. I like even numbers.
So I am ending this post with a tenth observation.  Haha! 


  1. 1. I totally agree with the talk radio statement. I made the Chicago <--> Atlanta drive a few times this summer and shorter trips to Tennessee and Florida, and music actually drives me nuts. I try to borrow books on tape from the library or listen to podcasts.

    2. I saw Black Swan for the second time tonight and I loved it too. Part of me wants to read all the "spoilers" online but am refraining because I don't want to ruin my thoughts on it!

  2. I'm glad I got to read this and learn more about you! and i'm so glad I was in a sorority with you!!

  3. i'm glad you finally got to meet him too! i have enjoyed seeing you so much in the past two weeks :)

  4. My Pop's company own the production company that made Black Swan (or something like that)... Previews looked too bizarre for me though.


I would love for you to leave me a comment! Its great to know people out there actually read (and hopefully enjoy) this blog! Please leave me an email address if you can. I love to respond to readers who leave comments when possible.
