Starting on Monday, September 6, 2010 (at 4:00 in the morning, so technically Sunday, September 5), I started taking a picture of something that made me happy every day. My Project Happiness 365 started as a proactive act on my part to ward off deep depression. It was spurred by heartbreak as an effort to pull myself out of the wreckage, but now it's fueled by gratitude and a desire to find the beauty in everyday, "mundane" life. This is my honest, vulnerable journey from Hot Mess to Winning. I hope this helps. Oh, and if you're in pain, good; that means you put your whole heart into something. And if you think it won't ever get better, I promise it will. Here's my proof.

11. Post-Twats

It has been a long day. I’m not quite sure what happened today. You know those days where you suddenly gasp and you find yourself sitting in a mess of homework with food on your face and possibly chocolate in your hair? I had one of those. Here I am, 6 dinner rolls and a bowl of soup later… baffled as to what has happened today.

Well, HAPPY 21ST BIRTHDAY, KELLEY! BW people- your headshots are beautiful. If you are thinking, ‘Wow, this blog has no direction.’ To you f-ers I say, “Why yes, you are right.”

Let’s really try hard to think of what happened today. Ok. OH. In Dialects we did our Midwest accent, so we did a monologue from Drop Dead Gorgeous. God, I had a gigglet or two. OH. My philosophy professor had a funny quote today. We were talking about the controversy over the Ground-Zero Mosque and he said, “It’s neither at Ground-Zero or a mosque but nobody seems to care about the facts.” Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Giggles made me giggle. It truly has been a day of giggles. Ish. And Katie and I practiced our Jazz III combo in the courtyard…we gathered an audience of creeping children and occasionally Steve. Oh and I didn’t have time to do my hair this morning, but Katie donated me a comb so now I don’t have to borrow hers whenever I want to tease my hair. So I strutted through the NFAC today while teasing my hair. And I spent parts of Survey teasing my hair. But it was only when Roger wasn’t looking. But I think Katie caught me a couple of times. ERPS!

I’m sorry y’all. This doesn’t have it’s normal flow. We all have off-days, right? Man, I need a hug.

Here’s my picture. Every time someone says something nice to me or tells me they read my blog I write that down on a post-it and put it on my wall next to my face. So here’s a picture of it.

“I love reading your blog. It’s like holding your hand.”

(It was a while ago but it lifted me up today.)

I love you. And I can’t get Parachutes by Ingrid Michaelson out of my head. No matter how hard I try. Don’t stop moving.
