Happiness Continued: September 5 - September 11

Monday September 5
Having Labor Day off

I have always loved the Fall semester. There are so many "vacation" days. The first day off of the semester was today and it was such a relaxing day. I woke up extremely late and am not ashamed of sleeping in. I got so many errands done and did not have to worry about school.
I may have chosen this very thing as my "happy" thing of the day last year, but I am choosing it again. I guess this just reiterates how much i love days off!

Tuesday September 6
Typing up my homework in LaTeX

l finally taught myself how to type up my homework in LaTeX. This makes me happy and makes me feel accomplished. All I have to say is

PS... It is pronounced "Lay-Tech"

Wednesday September 7
Winning a poke war with my boyfriend

This may seem extremely juvenile but my boyfriend and I just finished a poke war. Can you guess who won?


Of course I did! He is currently in denial and will not admit that I won but that is OK. I am content with knowing that I won. YAY!

Thursday September 8
The Office Season 7 Bloopers

Today, I was checking my Google Reader and stumbled upon this video.You already know how much I love The Office. So, you should not be surprised that the show ended up in my list AGAIN. I have seen every episode and these bloopers STILL make me laugh.

You should definitely watch this video. It is hilarious.

Going out for Liz's birthday

Last year, the math grad students went out for Liz's birthday and I was not able to attend. I was determined to go this year. I absolutely adore Liz and wanted to spend time with her on her birthday. We ended up going to The Top to get dinner and a couple of drinks. We then went to Boca Fiesta and danced the night away. I had so much fun and am pretty sure that Liz did too. YAY for birthdays!

Saturday September 10
My paintings

I have always wished that I had more creative talent. I wish that I drew better and that I could paint better. Oh well, I have to make due with the talents that I have. You probably are looking at my paintings and you are thinking "It looks like a 5th grader painted that". Do you know what I say to that?


I had so much fun painting them and am extremely proud of my paintings.
Sunday September 11
Grateful for the life I have (due to September 11)

I promise that I will not do a whole mushy "Proud to be an American" post, but I HAVE to at LEAST put this as my happy thing of the day.

Today I woke up and turned on the TV. I was drawn to all of the news concerning September 11, 2001. Today is the 10 year anniversary and it reminded me of how lucky I am to have the life I am living.

For the past couple of weeks the anniversary was talked about everywhere but it never really hit me. While watching the tributes on TV, I started to remember where I was and what I was doing on September 11,2001. I was sitting in class at Brentwood Middle school. My teacher flicked on the TV and I was watching. I am so ashamed of the fact that I had no idea what was REALLY going on. I did not realize how much this would impact my life. I watched the news without really listening to what they were saying. It was as if I was watching a silent movie. My teachers kept crying.

Now, I realize the significance of those events. I am so lucky that my family is safe. 

I will stop with the mushiness and continue with my busy life.

Much love,
