on faking life and other things

"Someone must be making your day."

I looked up from my phone and to the gentleman who was patiently waiting for his coffee as well.  

"Excuse me?"

"You’re smiling pretty big."

"Oh," I laughed.  "My boyfriend is going to take tomorrow off instead of Friday and was telling me about it."

It’s not that this text rendered any significance, but it’s just an example of how much I perk up and still become giddy over simple texts from Alaska (Ben).  I’m not going to go into all that mushy cliche of happiness that a significant other can bring, because I’ve always been a happy person.  With Ben, I’ve reached a state of calmness and ease.  For once, I feel like I’m not trying and that he’s in this with me just because I’m being me.

Everything in my life finally seems centered except for the whole finding a “career” aspect, but that’s going to sort itself out eventually.   

My blog hasn’t been very lucrative in the way of words.  Lately it’s just easier to snap photos of my life and insert little snippets of sentences.  Everything is great though— fantastic, really!  That’s all you really need to know.  Unless there are some burning questions about my wonted life, then you know where to direct those to.  

I’ve felt good about myself too.  It’s made me feel like I can take on anything.  So much so that I just a freakin’ adventure already!  The voyage to the homeland commences on Friday.  There, I am promised jacuzzi sessions and wine filled glasses.  Hikes and sipping brandy spiked coffee will be had as well as winter snuggles with my favorite orange feline.

Everything is just so comfortable and I feel it with every step.  There’s lightness in the world.   

I found a sunshiney burst of happiness on this rainy day.

This is The Vanguard.

BFFP:  Why is she in a fridge?

Pandora:  Because she’s happy!

BFFP:  So, you go in a fridge when you’re happy?

Pandora:  Apparently.

BFFP:  I do not understand you white people.  You are interesting people.  

I was having a rough night.  Yeah, the Giants won the series but it was the conversation after with my mother that set me over.  The new Matt & Kim album stepped up my happiness.
