    I love...

    • chocolate chip cookies
    • accidently setting my alarm on a weekend and then realizing I can go back to sleep
    • 3 day weekends
    • new razors, nice and sharp
    • cupcakes when the frosting is a little stiff
    • the scent of shucking sweet corn
    • picking up my mom from the airport when she comes to visit
    • genuine hugs from my students
    • new clothes
    • honeysuckles
    • the sound of crickets over a droning fan
    • the first crocuses (spelling?) of spring
    • the feeling after a first kiss when the awkwardness is gone
    • iTunes gift cards
    • Mannheim Steamroller as the Christmas tree goes up
    • the chills I get every time I hear Yo Yo Ma play Bach's Suites
    • iced coffee first thing in the morning
    • a steaming hot shower when it's snowing outside
    • NPR
    • eating Hagen Daaz out of the container while watching LOST
    • the way my kitten insists on sprawling out over me when we sleep
    • not getting a speeding ticket when you deserved one
    • coupons for the stuff you needed anyway
    • my family's sense of humor that no one understands except my family
    • the teachers on my team
    • the ELMO cart/LCD projector/laptop I just received
    • DVR
    • knowing I succeeded in quitting smoking more than a year now
    • documentaries
    • my father's art
    • the last paper in that huge stack you just graded
    • the first day of any vacation
    • seeing places I've been to in a movie scene
    • handsome men in glasses
    • farmer's markets
    • everything in the clearance rack is in your size

    Keep it going...

    reading-and being lost in a book
    a genuine hug and smile from a former student
    mechanical pencils
    HOUSE-my secret crush, Hugh Laurie

    Pisces - what a cool thread to start. I made a list like this when I was in college and it's so funny to go back and see how some of the things you value stay the same and how some change.

    the first day of school
    the last day of school
    scary movies
    rock music
    dalmatians
    long showers (I know not very "green" of me)
    ice cream
    diet coke
    reality tv
    rain
    making a difference
    when the good guy wins

    Yeah, I definitely wasn't excited about it when I first started but I just got tired of being a bump on a log. So I started back in January and have been keeping track of how many weeks. I'm on my 18th week. It really doesn't feel like exercise when my boyfriend and I go swimming and hiking. I do still have to push myself when I'm in the fitness center. I also purchased my own stability ball which makes it easier.
