I got this Meme from Kim and I just love doing these things. No one bothered me at work because I must have had the "concentrating" look on my face! lol

1. I’ve come to realize that my chest-size. . .is not to be taken for granted. I say this because of my numerous friends who've nursed one or several babies. We gotta appreciate the goods now, ladies!

2. I’ve come to realize that my job. . .is sucky. Wait, be positive! Okay - is only a temporary situation that will provide me with financial security when it comes time to pursue my "dream job." (Better?)

3. I’ve come to realize that when I’m driving. . .I zone out. Kind of a lot. Bet you're glad you don't live in Indy!

4. I’ve come to realize that I need. . .something that I can't post here because it's inappropriate. lol - half kidding! I need water. Like, I drink over 100 ounces a day. I literally get cranky when I don't have it! (although I pee much less)

5. I’ve come that realize that I have lost. . .my mind? No, I've lost my patience with people who are constantly complaining about something, but yet refuse to do anything to change the situation.

6. I’ve come to realize that I hate it when. . .people tailgate me. Although not so bad if number 3 (above) is happening.

7. I’ve come to realize that if I’m drunk. . .I have diarrhea of the mouth. If you want to know my secrets, bring me some Jose!

8. I’ve come to realize that money…if in excess, often makes people unhappy, because they are always wanting the next best thing...and they are never satisfied.

9. I’ve come to realize that certain people. . .aren't in my life anymore because they made me feel bad, even though it was hard to cut ties with them. If they make you feel bad, why be friends with them?

10. I’ve come to realize that I’ll always. . .be ultra-sensitive.

11. I’ve come to realize that my sibling(s). . .are my best friends, just like mom said they'd be (darnit, she's right again).

12. I’ve come to realize that my mom…loves to nag only because she loves me.

13. I’ve come to realize that my cell phone. . .needs to be with me at all times.

14. I’ve come to realize that when I woke up this morning. . .I was SO GLAD it was Friday. 2 days free from work!

15. I’ve come to realize that last night before I went to sleep. . .I was only thinking about sleeping in on Saturday.

16. I’ve come to realize that right now I am thinking. . .gosh I love these memes. People think I'm working!

17. I’ve come to realize that my dad. . .is probably the best guy I've ever come across in my life. Ever. And I'm still in awe that I deserve for a man that pure and good to be my father.

18. I’ve come to realize that when I get on Facebook. . .I giggle when I see the updates of all my SAHM (stay at home mom) friends - whom I respect so much - like, "Jonny pooed in the potty!" and "I'm going to send the girls to juevy if they don't shut up!" Tooootally different than the updates from my single friends.

19. I’ve come to realize that today. . .is awesome because it's Friday.

20. I’ve come to realize that tonight. . .will be chillaxin' time with my sistahs.

21. I’ve come to realize that tomorrow. . .I will get to see my dear grandma, and many members of my family!

22. I’ve come to realize that I really want to. . .find a rewarding, fulfilling job.

23. I’ve come to realize that the person mostly likely to repost this is. . .not sure about this one!

24. I’ve come to realize that life. . .is about how you look at things. The same sucky thing can happen to two different people, yet they can react in complete opposite ways.

25. I’ve come to realize that this weekend. . .is a time for me to re-group and eats LOTS of fruits and veggies.

26. I’ve realized the best music to listen to when I am upset. . .is currently "Flightless Bird, American Mouth" by Iron & Wine (from the "Twilight" soundtrack). Or Britney Spears in general.

27. I’ve come to realize that my friends. . . might be at different points in their lives than me, but that doesn't mean we can't still be good friends.

28. I’ve come to realize that this year. . .is going to bring about a lot of change!

29. I’ve come to realize that my exes. . .were kind of jerks, but I don't hate 'em. They were fun!

30. I’ve come to realize that maybe I should. . .get back to work?

31. I’ve come to realize that I love. . .my family.

32. I’ve come to realize that I don’t understand. . .why bad things happen to good people. I know everything happens for a reason, but it's just upsetting when something tragic happens to someone very loving and kind.

33. I’ve come to realize my past. . .involved LOTS of mistakes, from which I am still learning everyday.

34. I’ve come to realize that parties. . .are a time to indulge, but not to the point of being sick (that goes for sweets AND, um, beer).

35. I’ve come to realize that I’m totally terrified. . .of flying. But this won't stop me from doing it...that would mean giving up travel!

36. I’ve come to realize that my life. . .is unpredictable. And I kinda like that. :-)

Today I am thankful for:

- Ice packs
- Fresh strawberries
- Friendly faces at the gym who know my name

I too will always be ultra-sensitive!! It's a gift and sometimes a curse...

I totally get the SAHM updates! Seriously. Please someone drive to my house and throw my laptop out the window if I ever start doing that when I have kids!! lol!

Happy Friday Holly! :)

I hate when people tailgate me too!! Although, I do slow down a bit when I they are being annoying and they usually slow down.

Amy said...

I love this! Learned a lot, too. I esp. like #18! Haha, soooo true!

kilax said...

It sounds like you have a really fun weekend and night ahead of you!

Number 5 - that is my sis. Ugh.

I love your answer to 24 - life is all about perception!

I hope you find happiness in your work soon :)

It sounds like you have a good outlook on life Holly. It's always refreshing to read blogs like yours. Too many people complain about their situation or their life and yet aren't willing to make the sacrifices required to enact any meaningful change.

Fitnut said...

And fried pizza? That's crazy!

HangryPants said...

I liked reading this! The part about your dad was so sweet and no. 1 made me LOL!

Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter) said...

This was so fun and refreshing to read. I think you and I would be good friends!

I totally zone out when I drive too - not a good habit...nor is checking my email on my phone while driving.

Iron and Wine - one of the best concerts I ever attended!

You should check out the soundtrack to Away We Go. I'm loving it these day.

You WILL find your dream Will.
