Little Letters

So, I'm thinking about making my "Little Letters" posts be a weekly thing. What do you all think? Well, here we go...

Dear School, I'm really grateful for the opportunity you are giving me to get an education. I just wish that you gave less homework, and were more fun to go to. Sincerely, the girl suffering from major senioritis.

Dear Kjarinda, Thank you for making the S'mores bars for work yesterday. Best day at work yet! They were delicious. Love, Katie  P.S. What treat should we have next week?

Dear Weather, I do enjoy the changing of seasons, but, will you please warm up again, even if it is just for a little while? I don't like it being 30 degrees outside when I'm walking to class. Love, the girl who is sick of shivering.

Dear Brynne, Do you still want to make Sunday dinner? I sure hope so, because I think that it would be real fun... Let me know. Love, Katie

Dear Dinner, I love you. Just this one time will you be ready when I get home? I don't feel like making anything. Even if I you're not ready at 5:15 when I walk in my door, I will still love you. Love, the girl who doesn't feel like cooking tonight.

Dear 'Little Letters,' For some reason, I used to only do letters to things (except Tyler). I'm switching it up a little bit. Please don't hate me. I like writing letters to people too. Love, the letter-writer.

Dear Tyler, I'm sorry you always get a letter. If you want me to stop, I will. But I just wanted you to know that I am always thinking about you. You're kind of distracting, but I like it! You are amazing. I am the luckiest girl in the WHOLE world. Love, your wife.


WHY is it so easy to procrastinate? You see, I have this paper that I need to write. I would like to have it mostly done by about 10:30 this morning. I know exactly what I need to put in this paper, but for some reason I'm writing a blog post, and I already checked my Facebook. Why? Because I really really really don't want to write this paper. Oh yeah, my other reason for procrastinating this morning... it's still soon enough after I woke up that my eyes are still a little fuzzy, and I can't think straight. But, I need to get this done. I'll give you an update and let you know how it went.

I saw this quote one time, I don't know who said it, but it applies perfectly in this situation.

If you wait until the last minute to get something done, then it only takes a minute!

**Update (as promised): I ended up finishing my paper by 9:45! One of the best feelings ever is being able to write something super quick, and actually have it turn out well. Anyway, thanks for reading!

Fall in Logan!

Last week when I was walking home through the cemetery I realized just how pretty Logan can be. What do you think?

Monday Happy List!

I know, I know, it's been a few weeks since I've done a happy list. I don't know, maybe you all didn't miss them, but I like doing them since they help me remember how blessed I am...and they remind me to look for the little things in life that can bring so much joy. With that said, let's do this!

Top 6 (Why 6? I don't know.) things that have made me happy lately:
  1. Fall break. Even though it was only one day off of school, I got to spend the long weekend with everybody I love the most!
  2. The Kindle. I really just love reading a good book, and my Kindle makes it even easier because I can just find books online that I want to read!
  3. A new computer battery. Thanks Dad! Now I don't have to be plugged into the wall anytime I want to use my computer!
  4. Spring classes being posted. I'll admit it, I'm a nerd. I LOVE planning my new school schedules. However, I have mixed emotions about planning my last-ever semester schedule. So crazy!
  5. Tyler. He is always on my list. I know he's not a "thing," but I just wouldn't feel right if I didn't include him in my list. He can always make me happy.
  6. Charlie Bit Me. I love re-watching YouTube videos and having them be funny still, even though I already know what's coming up. This last week I watched Charlie Bit me probably about 7 or 8 times, and yes, it was funny every single time!
I hope this makes you laugh as much as it makes me laugh. 
Happy Monday!

Little Letters

Dear Kindle, Thank you for being really entertaining lately. I have loved reading my books on you. You have reminded me how much I like to read. Love, The girl who is going to read you in about 5 minutes.

Dear Fall Break, I hope you give me something fun to do. I also hope you give me some good weather! You are coming at a great time, and I look forward to spending time with you. Love, The girl who always wants a vacation.

Dear Pinterest, Thank you for showing me pictures of food that looks really delicious. You have inspired me to cook more. Unfortunately, I don't have all of the right ingredients, and these recipes take an extra special trip to the store. Maybe one day I will get better at planning dinners and will have ingredients ahead of time. Love, A wannabe cook.

Dear Laundry, We meet again. Whether it's folding or washing I can always count on you to be there for me. Please stop. Sincerely, your arch nemesis.

Dear Jimmy Fallon Thank You Notes, You make me laugh. I enjoy our time together. Please be funny again this week. Love, The girl who still laughs at "Face Bidets" when getting a drink out of a drinking fountain.

Dear Running, I never thought I would say this, but I kind of miss you. Kind of. We still have a love-hate relationship, don't worry. Maybe someday I will learn to love you. Sincerely, your long-lost friend.

Dear Readers, Thank you for reading. I just hope that somebody actually gets a good laugh from these letters, because I think I'm pretty funny. Also, I'm going to try to get better at posting. Be excited! Love, Katie

Dear Tyler, I love you. You inspire me. You make me want to do my best, and to seek out every opportunity. Thank you for making me want to be better. Also, thank you for calming me down on Sunday night when I was really nervous about my interview that was on Monday. You are the best! Love, Your Sweetie (or chicken, whichever you think I am right now.)

Looking for a good book?

I suppose it's time for me to write another blog post. I've been really bad at writing lately, but I just haven't been able to find the right words. Not that I've had anything to say. Usually I find a way to talk about nothing at all, but I guess I've been to busy reading my Kindle to care too much. Oops! Anyway, I just finished reading a really good book! It is called Delirium and it was seriously so good. It's about this girl in a society where love is considered a disease. I better stop here before I start talking about the book and give everything away. Seriously really good though.

If you end up reading it, let me know what you thought!
