A small thought I had today...

Why can't life be a bit more like a strawberry?

Life Lesson

I'm learning an important life lesson right now. It's something I hope will become incorporated in me, instead of realizing it but never applying.

It's simple but profound to me:

The trial isn't the thing that should be considered in great depth, it's the people who are there for you when you go through it.

This means a great deal to me. I get so caught up in myself and how hard things can be, when I've never had to do this alone. I have an abundance of people who care about my well being. People think that to be happy things need to be going well in life, but happiness doesn't come that way. It comes from relationships and caring and love.

So Bryan, stop being so selfish!

Happy St. Patricks Day!!

I've always loved this holiday...ALWAYS.
I look forward to it every year. For some reason this day always brings about something good, a turn of events or just pure happiness. These are a few reasons why I loved today already.

  • my dad without reminder put on green pants this morning
  • just adding to the wonderful weather, the excessive green I saw on campus made spring even that much more tangible
  • I learned just recently that the Chicago river is dyed bright green every year...
(I vow to be in Chicago at least once when this happens)
  • I pinched two people today (just about the right amount to feel like you support the holiday but not abuse it)
  • my mom woke up this morning wearing a great green long sleeved shirt not on purpose...
  • and...I got in trouble in Spanish today for making the girl next to me squeal as I pinched her, making me feel like I was in 2nd grade again....
I hope you all enjoyed this holiday as much as I did!
(the blue is due to the fact that it originally was the colour associated with Saint Patrick.
Just one of those very important facts that you should know offhand)

This is beautiful

I want this to be my theme song. I don't
know French and I definitely don't know what it is about, but it's beautiful and it makes me happy and I love it.
