"Trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit" Moliere
Somethings take forever. It feels like eternity and it stretches on and on even though its only been a year. But here's to hoping that since it has been so long the fruit will be the best. Patience is key.
"But he who dares not grasp the thorn Should never crave the rose" Anna Bronte
I remember a lot from my childhood. I have a bit of a photographic memory, and I can remember things only by images. If I can't think of an image that goes with a memory, I can't access the memory. That might be true for a lot of people.
One of my memories from 2nd grade was of a book that we read where a child drew on the walls with chalk. Our teacher had us do an activity where we used white crayon on black construction paper. I remember loving it but we could only use white crayons. So I decided to use white, pink and green today.
If your curious about the book, I don't really remember what it was about, but I found the title. Its called "The Chalk Box Kid" by Clyde Robert Bulla.

March 14th has a special place in my heart. So today I celebrated. Bibibop is an excellent place for lunch and High School Musical: Get Your Head in the Game is an excellent board game to play with friends. Also I love giraffe balloons, lipstick, pushpins, and cow pillows (in case you were wondering)

Today I wore bobby pins in my hair for the first time in forever. Normally I have these little 'blonde' bobby pins that blend into my hair but since I can't seem to keep track of them I had to dip into my "emergency bobby pin stash".
These "emergency bobby pins" were from the dollar store; very stiff and coated in shiny black paint. I ended up taking them out half way through the day cause they hurt so badly.
Turns out they have a good use though...they work wonders with India Ink.

If you have read my about me page, seen my instagram, visited my apartment or just talked to me, you will probably know that I love cacti. I'm not sure why I love them so much; maybe its because they are resilient little plants that rarely die. Currently I have about seven in my apartment. They sit on a little sill by my front door and they make me smile whenever I walk past them.
Good friends are like cacti. They make me smile. They brighten my day. They are resilient. And yes sometimes they can be a bit prickly but I love them nonetheless. I'm thankful for my friends.
