but then I just smile.

There are just a lot of things that are making me very very very happy right now. 
So.. I'm gonna make a list so someday when I'm grumpy I can remember that not every day is a bad day.

I'm happy
[because] I get to go home again in two and a half months. Maybe sooner. Maybe?
[because] I'm graduating in seven months. Say whaaa?
[because] I have the best roomies ever. Honestly, I don't know how I got so lucky.
[because] I'm going to New York in May to fulfill a lifelong dream of singing in Carnegie Hall. FACT.
[because] mine, Sarah's, and Bailey's mattresses have all been in the living room for almost three weeks now. Best.Decsion.Ever.
[because] someone loves me even when I make stupid mistakes. Which happens a lot.
[because] I have so many wonderful years ahead of me to do so many wonderful things. I think the best is yet to come. =)
[because] this semester isn't so bad. It isn't so bad at all. 
[because] I finally like vegetables. (Except tomatoes. Never.)
[because] I have the best friends. Ever. Karlee, Steph, Kate, and Michelle. Honestly, days and days and days go by and we are all living our separate lives but I love each of these girls with all my heart and I would do anything for them if they asked me to, and I think they feel the same.
[because] my school just decided to give me and my roomies all $2500 for a scholarship. I'm so glad that my roomies make sure I study sometimes.
[because] I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. And every single time I make mistakes... Every single time I mess up and get lost, Every.Single.Time. God is there, welcoming me back with open arms. I am so so lucky to have the knowledge that I have of the gospel of Jesus Christ. 
[because] Texas has been good to me. I live in a darling little apartment with wonderful roomies and have the best instructors and am in an amazing educational program helping me get an amazing career and a wonderful little Texas family whom I love with my whole heart. I have a cozy bed and the sun shines even when it's cloudy.
[because] I'm healthy. I am lucky to be as healthy as I am.
[because] happiest girls are the prettiest girls.
[because] being happy is so much more rewarding than being sad.
