Have you ever been showering and then suddenly noticed a giant spider hanging out on the ceiling? And then the spider proved it could move super fast, and even after you finished your shower, it held you hostage in the shower for much longer than you’re proud of? And while you were waiting to escape from the shower, you tried to decide if this was a re-enactment of that scene from Arachnophobia or if it would fit better in a Supernatural episode? And have you found yourself disappointed that your phone was in another room, because you couldn’t even text the boy about how you were stuck in a ridiculous nightmare of one of your three worst irrational fears?
In case you’re wondering, I can honestly answer yes to all the above questions. I did manage to finally escape the shower, but the spider is still at large. Which is funny, considering how large the spider was. And am I embarrassed by all of this? Yes, I absolutely am. A freakin’ spider held me hostage in a bathtub!
I think I need a hug.
Okay, I’m not going to lie. I’ve been feeling a bit down in the dumps this week. A combination of things just put me in a funk, and to top it off I ended the week with what I’m assuming is either a mild case of food poisoning or the flu. This led to me not wanting to write a happy list tonight. However, the whole reason I started the Sunday night happy list was to remind myself of all the things (big, small, or completely pointless) that I’m thankful for. So, onto the list…
-Clean showers. Living in a co-ed dorm, using a shower that so many other people use, I’ve gained a new respect for the clean shower at home. At home, I don’t have to worry about what nasty, unknown bacteria is lurking in the shower with me.
-Clean water. There’s really no logic to this one, other than the fact that as I was trying to hydrate today it really hit home that having clean water is an incredible gift.
-The return of fall t.v. I admit it, I’m a couch potato.
-This is my 61st post. I’m really excited that I’ve managed to post something everyday since I set out on this blogging journey. I don’t exactly have a good track record when it comes to sticking with things I start.
-Having hair. Even though my hair is ridiculously frustrating, I really appreciate that I have hair.
