February 26, 2011 with a little help from my friends
sometimes, you just need a really good friend to pull you out of your head. and the beatles, of course.
last night i spent a few hours at a friend’s house. we chit chatter over a few beers and he really helped me come to terms with the situation with k. he’s our mutual friend and such a level headed guy. his perspective changed my perspective and eased my anxiety which was starting to burn a hole in my chest. anxiety is an issue i know too much about, as i’m sure you do, too! regardless, i woke up this morning to sunshine and a new, familiar mood. i’m feeling much more settled, much more happy today. it always helps to share with a friend, right? talking about issues seriously always releases my worries.
anyway, i’m incredibly thankful. i sometimes forget about the support system around me. it’s solid and i should never doubt it like i do sometimes. i’m incredibly lucky to have people like my friend — let’s call him j — in my life.
since i’m feeling light hearted i figured i’d jump on the blog wagon and take this little survey! does this remind anyone else of myspace? confession: i was addicted to those surveys. i’m sure chunk palahniuck would have a word or two as to why 😉 but whatevs. i’m doing it anyway!
a. age: twenty-one! my golden birthday is this year :)! (twenty-two on the twenty-second!)
b. bed size: hmm…i want to say double? it’s smaller than a queen. but it’s basically a big fluffy cloud of awesome 🙂
c. chore you dislike: making my bed. cleaning the bathroom (i’m a used-to-be germaphobe). putting away laundry. despise!
d. dogs: not my best friend. i’m kind of terrified by them. coming around slowly, though!
e. essential start to your day: with breakfast! always have, always will.
f. favorite color: orange!
g. gold or silver: i much, much prefer silver to gold.
h. height: five foot one and a half inches. yes, the half inch is that important 😉
i. instruments you play(ed): flute for a few years. i miss it! i still have it but i don’t really remember how to play or read music like i could. bummer. i used to know how to play the harry potter song. baller!
j. job title: barista? partner?
k. kids: not for a while, hopefully! and maybe not at all.
l. live: northern california, just outside of san francisco 🙂
m. mom’s name: judy
n. nicknames: zo, bozo, zo-zo, z, and at one point in time z-force (don’t ask. it’s soccer related ;))
o. overnight hospital stays: none that i remember! i was a little inky-dink.
p. pet peeves: oh boy. i have way, way too many. um. chewing in my ear, when customers don’t specify what size drink they want (i.e: “can i get a white mocha?”), not using turn signals. really, there’s far too many to name!
q. quote from a movie: uh, on the spot? umm…slappa-the-bass! just watched this recently 🙂
r. righty or lefty: riiiiighty
s. siblings: jesse! it’s his birthday today, actually! my little brother is all grown up and turned 17 on me overnight, i swear!
t. time you wake up: usually right around nine. i’ve been waking up around nine for about a year now, regardless of what time i go to sleep. i’m a big fan because i’m a huge morning person and i love embracing the day!
u. underwear: must be comfortable.
v. vegetables you dont’ like: olives. and endives. and that’s about it!
w. what makes you run late: the fact that i’m a hard core procrastinator! hah.
x. x-rays you’ve had: my back! when i was little (before memory kicked in) i had some spinal infection and, consequently, had to take back x-rays every five years until i was fifteen, which is when we found out my back fused itself and the doctors wouldn’t have to do it for me! and i’ve had my teeth x-rayed at the dentist, and my knees and ankle when i effed them up running and playing soccer. no breaks though! (knock on wood!)
y. yummy food you make: dessert :)!
z. zoo animal favorites: the zoo makes me uncomfortable but i love elaphants and giraffes and zebras!
well, i hope you’re all enlightened and well educated about me now ;)! got any other questions you want to ask me? go for it :)!
i’m finishing up breakfast over here. in bed. what? it’s saturday and i’m feeling lazy ;). after i finish up i’m thinking of taking a walk. it’s sunny outside and lately, i’ve been craving walks like a crazy person! really, i just want to be outside all the time. seriously. it’s bad. but there’s also a climbing competition today at my college and you bet your ass i’m going to be there! so pumped! unfortunately i have work today from 6-12 (yes, 12 as in midnight) so it looks like the sunshine hours are my free hours today. darn 😉
what are your plans for saturday! for the weekend?
whatever they are, i hope you have a good one!
