Day 4: 20 Things I'm Happy I Did

The lovely Nicola suggested that I write a list of things that I am happy that I have done, so it made me think a bit about all the different things I've done, especially the ones I'm really glad about. Since I've had a really stressful weekend it was nice to force myself (that sounds awful, but it's true) to think about all the things that have made me happy. I would elaborate on this list, but time is short and it has not been an easy feat to come up with all of these things for these lists.

If you're curious about any of these, just ask!

things i'm curious about

-the eyebrow piercing (^^)
-clothing for the high school swim team? like.. tshirts/sweatshirts?
-HOW WAS PUERTO RICO. i'm looking into study abroad programs for next summer and kind of obsessively trying to learn about every country in the world.
- "basic" cooking skills to me are boiling water for pasta and cutting vegetables, so i'm curious about that.
- books you read as a kid (holes sticks out for me as one of my faves. and the bfg. and a long list of others)
