Lately, I've been feeling really thankful for different things and people. I get into these weird out-of-the-blue moods where I just feel so wonderfully blessed. Isn't that the worst thing in the world? (winkwink) I've decided to make a little list (since you know how I love lists) of the things I feel very thankful for right this very second.

1. My parents. I just got home from a wonderful visit to my parents' neck of the woods yesterday. I wasn't able to stay long because of the gargantuan pile of schoolwork waiting for me back at school. I stayed for only two wonderful days. I was just reminded of how blessed I am to have such wonderful parents. My Dad is very sweet and always reminds me that I'm beautiful even when I have no makeup on. I make a point to leave my makeup at my apartment whenever I go for a visit for this reason. My Mom is really silly and awkward, but she is one of the most loving people I've ever met. Plus she's drop dead gorgeous. It's nice to have her genes.

2. Friends. I have the best group of friends. They're the kinds of friends that make you laugh so hard your sides split. The kind that you gush to your parents about (Am I the only one that does that?) The kind that gives the best hugs and tells the stupidest jokes. The girls are kind, funny, weird, and breathtaking. The boys are silly, talented, respectful, and strong. Each and every one of them was put into my life for a specific reason. You know who you are. I don't tell you enough but I am so thankful for you and I wouldn't trade any of you for the world.

Now for less mushy gushy ones:

3. Wicked. I saw it with some wonderful friends last week for the third time. Let me just say, it was absolutely amazing. I laughed and (nearly) cried and the evening was not without many gooseybumps from all of the amazing talent. Walking out of the theater, I felt a Wicked HIGH coming along. I'm not lying. My companions can vouch for this.

4. The Beatles. I have recently rekindled my love for those 4 English musicians that have stolen the hearts of many a generation. I really don't think any more needs to be said of the topic. Note: Top Gun REALLY needs to be educated of the awesomeness of The Beatles. Seriously people, he had never heard the song "Here Comes the Sun" until I played it for him. NOT okay.

5. The Hunger Games series. Oh in the name of all things good and just. Get yourself these They are amazifying. You won't be sorry.

Anywho, I am very sleepy sleepy, so that will be all for now. Expect more thankful lists in the near future. I get thankful very often, sorry if you think that's boring.
