5 Words

I received a meme of five words to write about from the lovely blogger at Chocolate Covered Daydreams. Here are my five words:


Interesting word, "sentimental". Honestly, I'm not that sentimental. When I was younger I held on to things; ticket stubs, t-shirts, etc. But as time has gone by I've had my feelings crushed. (Various people, various ways.) I don't like that feeling, so I've found that I've hardened my emotions about things, about "sentimental" things. Songs trigger memories in a big way. I can't stop memories, no matter how hard I try. At this point in my life I focus on the current moment. (Who knows, one day something might flip a switch and I'll be a huge mess. We'll see.)


I think of hugs when I hear this word and I'm all for hugs! I like 'em! I like 'em a lot :->


I think 'joy' is a more intense feeling than 'happiness'. So, with that said, I've noticed that it's getting harder for me to feel joyful. There are plenty of things that make me happy, I'm not a total downer. I'm working toward finding ways to feel joyful.


I love to create!


This word makes me think of being sentimental, and I covered that already. I will say, if I want to feel joy, all I have to do is reminisce about our vacations to Calistoga, CA. Heaven on Earth.

Now, if you want five words, hit me up!!

Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
