The Bright Side

Mountains, water, blue sky. Happy place.
Sitka, AK//Jul2013

It's been a weird week. I've been in a funk for no good reason and today received some rather discouraging news. After shedding a few tears, I'm trying to make a conscious effort to remain positive. Therefore, below is a comprehensive list of the things that made me happy today. 

::Bill Corbett of Mystery Science Theater 3000 fame responded to my tweet. Does this means we're best friends now? Is that how Twitter works?

::I discovered a new (to me) band, Walk the Moon. Can't stop, won't stop listening to Anna Sun.

::Thanks to gift cards, I'm now the proud owner of this purse and this  foxy sweater

::With a little help from my favorite playlist, I ran my slow ass all the way up the Fountain Street hill. This is a big deal.

::After days of writer's block, I finally finished the first article I've written since college. Accomplishment. 

So there's my bright side. It's not much, but it got me through what could have been a horrible, no good, very bad day. Now I'm off to watch HIMYM and eat nachos with my husband. Just living the dream over here. 

Here's to tomorrow being a bright, new day. 


  1. So sorry you had such a rough time today. I hope it gets better for you. I love Walk the Moon!!!

    1. Thanks, Kristina. You're so sweet. I'm doing much better today. Have a good weekend! :)
