Thankful Thursday

It's been a while since I've done either a Wordless Wednesday or a Thankful Thursday, and while I'm sitting here reading an article about working mom's that I picked off of Facebook - because while I really should start my two page position paper for my food chem course, I honestly can't bring myself to even open the damn document at the moment - I realized that I hadn't really talked about anything that happened last month (couple weeks ago, really) during Spring Break. I spent it in Virginia, doing community service in Pocahontas State Park (again) and I really enjoyed it. I did it not because it's going to look great on a resume, but because I enjoy doing things for other people and get a good feeling when somebody benefits from something I can do for them.

And, while I have no idea the true cause for this, I would happily weed somebody else's flower beds but the ones in front of my house. I honestly don't know why, but hey, I think that's the feeling a lot of people have.

The thankful part comes in because I'm thankful I had the opportunity to spend my break doing something like this - working in the middle of the woods with people who's lives are pretty much an episode of Parks and Recreation in the making - and it was fun to meet and have to live with different people.

Things to Know XXIV

- I find it ironic that I'm watching The Social Network while my other tab at the top of my browser is open to Facebook.

- Which, considering little squiggles didn't appear, Facebook is actually a word.

- I'm taking a break from trying to chew through my Food Chem reading.

- And have cracked open a hard cider.

- I am ready for the semester to be over with.

- They make Starbucks coffee in an economy-sized package.

- They also make extra-large bottles of coffee creamer.

- I am really ready to be done with this semester.

- My fantastic Focus, Murfee, has gone missing. I'm guessing he's down by the boathouse, again, attempting to swim in the lake in the middle of April.

- Or maybe he's on the train tracks, I really don't know. I just know my Focus is missing.

- I am trying not to be a very lonely human being right now. And probably failing miserably.

- My break's been long enough - time to get back to work.
