those days when you can only smile

The status I posted on FaceBook two nights ago:

“Those days when you can just smile through everything and nothing goes wrong and everything just keeps getting better and better? Those are the best. Cherish those days.

I just had one of those days.”

Now, this day was actually two days ago, but essentially I am still on a high from it.

I woke up and while I was definitely tired, I was glad to be awake. It was beautiful outside, I was working in my favorite department that day at work, and I got to talk to someone important to me.

Prior to work, I had a conversation with a good friend, we just talked about what was going on that day and then I went to work. As I was working I ended up being the Theater/Presentation Checker and I got to only do that all day. I helped out with organizing the box offices for the majority of the day and finally for the last 2 hours of my 8-9 hour shift I got to actually check theaters.

When I started checking theaters I went and had another conversation with my friend because they were at the theater. I found out how long they would be there and planned to come back later. We talked for like half an hour at that time and then both figured we needed to get back to work so we did.

I got off of work and went home, took a shower, and my brother asked me to come see a movie with him and our little brother. Of course, I agreed. On the way to the theater, I convinced my brother to stop at Kroger so I could get a Mexican Coke for my friend at the theater. He agreed to let me do that so we stopped there, I bought the coke, and we were back on the road to the theater.

When we arrived there we got our tickets and headed to concessions. While my brothers were at concessions I told them I would see them in a bit and headed over to where my friend was so I could give him his Coke (which was for his birthday).

I walked up to him and he was very involved in what he was doing right then so I jjust stood there and waited for him to notice me and finally when he did I was like “Here. This is for you.” and I held the Coke out to him. He got really excited and was genuinely happy and then he threw me off when he asked “Can I give you a hug?”

Of course, I said yes, I wasn’t about to turn down a hug. Then we stood there and started talking and before we both knew it we had been talking for like an hour and a half. It didn’t feel like it had been that long, but it was. I really enjoy his company, he’s a great friend and I’m positive we’ll still be friends for a while.

After that, I went and finished watching Star Wars with my brothers and finally we left and hung out at home. The day was literal perfection. I am not sure how much better you can get.

Like I said, I am still on a high from all that occurred that day.

If you have the opportunity to have a day like this, take advantage of it. They don’t come along all the time and may surprise you when they do or even disrupt your plans when they do. But they are so worth it.

As always, fare thee well!!

So… Homecoming?

I know, I know. I didn’t want to have a date to anything. But then something came up. It’s my senior year. My friends all want me to have a date. The only problem was that up until a week ago, the only person I wanted to go with was out of the country, in Spain.

Last Friday, I got off of work at the same time as my friend Jared. We left together and just talked the whole way to our cars. Then I didn’t think I’d get to talk to him for a while and my friend Katie was setting up a group date (ladies choice) for today. I figured I probably wouldn’t be able to find anyone to go with me because I get my work schedule on Wednesdays when I’m not there on Monday nights. That would only be 3 days warning and I hate it when people do that to me, so I wasn’t going to do that to them.

So then Jared messaged me on Sunday and we were talking and I thought “Hey! Maybe he could come with me!” So, I asked him and he said he wants to, but he wasn’t sure because he would have to check his work schedule which was totally acceptable.

He checked it, and he was working that day. So last night while we were working, he and I were talking and I asked him about today and he said that he hasn’t had any luck and so I asked him if he wanted to come to my school’s homecoming game and he said that he would be down for that. So I got off of work and he was on his break and I just talked to him and talked to him until he had to work again and I went home.

I got home and told my mom and she was so excited. It’s my 3rd date since I turned 16 (dating age for Mormons). the 2nd one that I’ve asked a guy on, And I’m CRAZY excited. Jared and I are so alike. 🙂 This is gonna be so much fun!!!! Plus, he’s a cutie ;D

Fare thee well!!!

Working on blogging more often…

I really should do this more… I’m not sure why I don’t, but hopefully having this on my phone will help me with my tendency to ignore my blog… 🙂 I really don’t want to stop blogging… I mean, I’m so good at writing in my journal… Why not my blog as well? 🙂 I’ll post something else later…if not later today, at least later this week. Au revoir!

Fare thee well!
