I can’t believe I just finished a year of PT school already! It didn’t really hit me until people kept mentioning it during finals week and then after we took our last final, there were probably around 25 statuses about it. It’s gone by fast. I remember at the very beginning when I first moved to Austin, I cried all. the. time. I actually asked Jeromie, “AM I DEPRESSED?! Is this how it feels?!” haha. It was out of control! But that soon passed and I got the hang of school and people. Anyway, I think I’ve come a long way from that. I went from going home practically every other week to not going home for over a month! (that’s definitely a record) Woohoo, I’m a big girl now. Haha.
I don’t know if my friends understand that they could literally invite me over to sit on their floor and watch a dumb movie. Like I’m really not hard to please, you don’t even have to feed me. Very low maintenance friend right here…I just want to do something that is not at my house okay.
“I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.”—Jonathan Carroll (via meowlita)
