consider this an ongoing list..

  • my mother. her down to earth, realistic, accepting view of the world around her. she is easygoing, works with what she's got, and takes care of the people around her. simple as that.
  • beaver. his clever, frustratingly fabulous sense of humor.
  • hayden. his quirky hobbies and interests, and his apathy toward others' opinions of those hobbies and interests.
  • my father. the thoughtful gestures he uses in place of showing affection.
  • blake. his consistent positive attitude, consistent acceptance of who i am, and reliability as a best friend. he has never failed me. not once.

  • views. There's nothing I love more than a good view. From a dirt road in the mountains overlooking the valley. From the east bench overlooking the city. From the top of a rock watching a sunrise. I am obsessed.
  • houseplants. My bedroom is a jungle at this point. I've heard that having plants promotes positivity and happiness in a space, and the happier you are, the better your plants will grow. I'm fixated on this concept and now I have a dozen plants in my tiny apartment bedroom.
  • blankets. I am always freezing. Always. So this is more me being well-prepared than me collecting something. But seriously, if you ever want to build a blanket fort, I got you.

The following is a list of our house rules, standards, and mantras.

  • First and foremost- LOCK THE FRONT DOOR. ALWAYS. The world is full of crazy people and rapists and murderers and even if you are INSIDE the house just LOCK THE DOOR.
  • Pants are always optional.
  • Because pants are always optional, try to give your roommates a heads up before bringing people home with you.
  • No Taylor Swift. Ever.
  • Always try to pay your share of rent and utilities on time. This seems obvious, but should probably still be said.
  • In this home, we play Trash Jenga on a competitive level.
  • If you need to move out, give 30 days notice to Kait and help find a replacement.
  • If you have friends over late, herd them to your bedroom and close your door, so e...

  • your boss / team are like your family. Seriously. You spend 45+ hours a week with these guys and know everything about them. They're your people and you love them, even when you want to murder them.
  • if you had a dollar for every time someone called you a "lifesaver," you wouldn't even need this job anymore.
  • CARDIGANS. THE LIMIT DOES NOT EXIST.
  • you know how everyone in the office takes their coffee, and know exactly when they're needing it by the look on their face or tone of their voice.
  • people call you a secretary or "the front desk lady." This is insulting and infuriates you. You are neither of these things.
  • you have eaten a cookie or two from every single local restaurant, because they are constantly bringing you their catering and to-go menus.

  • drinking only water, coffee, and tea- sorry, blue gatorade, it's been a good run but i have to let you go.
  • wearing my seatbelt- something i have always hated, but need to stop being difficult about.
  • opening the blinds and letting natural light into the apartment.
  • making a note of one thing i am grateful for every day.
  • waking up early to take time for myself before work- rather than scrambling to get ready, then rushing off to a long stressful day.
  • doing something outside every day.
