Things We Lost in the Dryer

So, it's been a long time since my last post...and as long times usually go...a lot has happened since then! In an effort to keep this post short, yet insightful, I have decided to highlight the top five happenings since last I posted on Pass the Mustard Seed.

Here goes nothing...

5.) I have learned that if you're going to get a flat tire, you should get one while in the presence of my friend Christine. Not only is Christine encouraging in any situation, she is also a Physical Therapy student. My tire went flat on Mt. Carmel Avenue, a scenic road which always seems to bug just narrow enough to keep me driving under 45 mph (probably a good thing) and just wide enough that on early mornings I can pretend that I'm driving in the countryside (this in on days that I see geese and/or the horse that resides in the back of one of the houses on the street). tire went flat and I could have called AAA, but Christine and I like an adventure so we wanted to do it ourselves...AND Christine was so encouraging the whole time! She didn't complain once, even though it was raining and windy...and she reminded me to keep my back straight.

4.) I have become a Venti-sized Office fan. The show is just so good!

3.) I cut my a barber shop...and now have bangs.

2.) I learned to pearl and am now making a ribbed scarf!

1.) I have developed an eclectic taste in music! I know, I know...don't people normally do that before their senior year of college? Well, yes...yes they do, but up until this year I never really had as burning an interest in music as I do now. My cousin told me about a website called The Hype Machine where I find out about a lot of new music...I highly recommend it. Some of my latest favorites are: Ingrid Michaelson, Regina Spektor, Sondre Lerche, MIKA, Nellie McKay, Iron & Wine, Travis, and name a few. Heard of them? Let's talk! Haven't heard of them, check them out! They're goooood!
