I've been making a couple lists recently.
Wait. Let me back up.
Hi, my name is Jenn, and I love lists. Just love them.
Okay, so now that we cleared that out of the way, let me tell you about the lists I've been making recently.
The first one is probably of little interest to anyone but myself, but it's a list of personal heroes. Like, people I know in real life who inspire me/I look up to/want to be like when I grow up. (even if they're a decade younger than me. yes it happens.) Because see, if someone asks me who my hero is, I always say C.S. Lewis (and let's face it, he is). And other than that, I throw the term around rather loosely for various people (my sister ♥) for a plethora of reasons. But making this list, see--it's made me realize how many people in life I have to look up to...and really how so many people I know have at least one thing about them that I really really admire. (yup even the seven year old.) (she has a love life, that's how I aspire to be like her.) (wait what.)
Moving swiftly on.
The other list, which is perhaps more interesting, is simply of my favorite things. Cliche perhaps (and this is kind of the cheesy beginnings of things that come to me off the top of my head), but guess what? I don't care. hah. So if you care to know, here are a few of my favorite things.
-girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
-snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
-silver white winters that melt into springs
...I mean, I warned you that it was cliche, right?
-Les Mis (I thought we'd get that one out of the way)
-playing the piano
-notebooks & stationery
-songs that remind me of a certain time/experience/person
-the sky in general
-being told I'm good at something I love
-hugs (especially big long ones)
-The Lion King
-people who have a good vocabulary
-stories that move me
-finding people who are as
-good hair days
-things I've waited a long time for
-knowing I could trust someone with anything
-crackers, goat cheese, and craisins
-humorous youtube videos
-reading things I wrote a long time ago and being able to remember things so vividly
-(pumpkin spice) lattes
-making people laugh
-laughing with people
-(especially British) accents
-knowing someone for a long, long time
...and that's all I have for now, though I'm sure it will continue to grow. These things just make me happy. (Also what makes me happy is November which means my birthday and Thanksgiving and good food and break and oh yay happiness.)
k. Have a great weekend, friends.
