I can only blog about what I am thinking about. I wish that wasn't the case, but it's why my blog clearly isn't random. (For the record, did I tell you about the MBA grad that I went on some dates with that stalked my blog and criticized my blog title?? I had to read him this post clarifying that I know my blog is not random.)
Anyway, every spring I talk about how I kinda get bummed out a little. I wish spring didn't bum me out... cuz it is kinda weird. Seeing the tulips burst through the dirt shouldn't bum a girl who loves tulips out... but it does. I'll admit it, I am straight up bummed. But the good news, I am doing what works best for me when I am bummed. I am running. Figuratively and literally.
On Saturday I turn 29. My last year in my twenties... I'm kinda excited to have one more year. The past year has been the best year of my life... and honestly, I think 29 will just get better. But you know what as much as I try and put on a smile... as much as I try to remember the forget me nots... as much as I try and delight in my opportunities.... sometimes I just want a hero. Today I spent the day being a hero for a kid. I spent 5 hours working with him, talking with him, trying to get him see his potential... and although it was really really really rewarding as I drove home absolutely exhausted there was only one thing I could think about... I could sure use a hero.
This version of the song from Footloose is AMAZING. I have been listening to it on repeat for almost 24 hours.
