Today I am Homesick.

Today I am Homesick. 
I miss so much about home.

I miss my Mom. 

I miss my Dad.

I miss my dog. 

I miss Herndon Lacrosse.

I miss my wonderfully comfy couch.

As Brandon so perfectly models it's comfort.

I miss D.C.

I just miss home. I can't wait for this semester to be over so I can return to my love Virginia.

My Valentine's Day

Like I said in the other Valentine's Day post this year I had a new outlook on the whole "Day of Love" thing. I was determined not to be depressed or feel sorry for myself since I'm single. I'm happy single. It leaves me available to every beautiful man that wants me. (And by every I mean no one.) But seriously I have so many reasons to be happy on Valentine's day that it's pathetic and embarrassing to throw myself a pity party every February 14th.

So anyways, this year I was excited for Valentine's. I was excited to celebrate the love I have and how my love will only increase throughout my life. I didn't do all I had planned, but it only motivates me more for next year. But here are the things that did happen this year-

Monday night around 11pm I had a knock on my door. I was home alone so I couldn't make Makenzie get it. I'm never happy about having to get out of my bed to open the door but this time I was especially upset because I was watching a really good movie. But reluctantly I jumped out of bed and opened my door to find single rose with my name on it. I didn't say who it was from. I was so intrigued and honestly I thought it was a joke. I almost immediately called Makenzie to ask if it was her and our friends she was with. To my surprise, it was not them. Then I texted my sister to see if her or Jason had sent it. Nope. Not them either. I even asked my Dad. They all could be lying but I'm fairly good at seeing through their lies. So I stopped trying to figure out who it was and just began to fantasize about who it could be. Some wonderful friend who thought to make sure I had at least something on Valentine's? A stalker who drugged it so he could kidnapp me? Or could it be this boy in one of my classes that I love who is just too shy to tell me he feels the same way I do and we should get married? I choose the third option. But in all seriousness, thanks boy in my class. I love you too.

Me and my Rose :)

So that was the long drawn out story of my anonymous rose. It was just the kick-off to the rest of my wonderful Valentine's day. While going to class I just smiled and was happy for the couples. I got excited seeing all the boys hiding roses behind their backs waiting for their girlfriends to come out of class. I loved watching the girls walk around smelling their flowers with an un-erasable smile on their face. I think I just love seeing people happy. Which in turn makes me happy.

But if all that wasn't enough I get a package from my Dad with one dozen GEORGETOWN CUPCAKES. For those of you who are noobs to the Cupcake world they are some of the best cupcakes out there. And even better than that, they are from home. So wonderful. And my wonderful roommate Makenzie brought my nummy ice cream. Isn't she sweet?

And to top it all off I had a fun night with my girls. We ate cupcakes and watched Water for Elephants.

What a wonderful Valentine's Day I had. Love you all my loyal blog readers! I hope you also felt the love on Valentine's Day!

Stupid nerves. I'm about to meet with this man who wants to hire me as an assistant lacrosse coach for a new U-15 league and I'm flippin' nervous. I could barely sleep last night. I kept waking up worried I slept through my alarm. I basically already have the job I don't know why I'm so nervous but I might be slightly freaking out. I have no idea what this man looks like, acts like, or anything really about him. And I know very little about this league. Hence the meeting. But still. I'm nervous. Hopefully this helps me get my nerves out. I'm going to give myself a pep talk. (Man, every old-ish man that walks by I try to look nice just in case it's him. I hate this!) Anyways- Pep Talk!

I may not be the best lacrosse player by a long shot, but I am great with people. I am kind. I am understanding, and I just love lacrosse which makes me qualified right? It's just an assistant job so I'll be observing, getting to know the program, taking in all I can, and probably just doing what they tell me. Which is low stress. I wont have any huge responsibilities. But if I were to be given some I would be able to handle it. I am really good at getting organized and planning things. I can easily act like a 15 year old. I can connect with these girls no problem. I can coach them and help them out easily. Trust in that! I am qualified for this job. And if nothing else, I am from the east. That makes me special right?

Oh my goodness. That helped but I'm still nervous. Sorry all you avid blog readers, this blog was for me more than for anyone else. Maybe a lesson you could take away from this is that it's ok to give yourself pep talks? Like Alec Baldwin did in 30 Rock. It's perfectly normal. Right?

excuse the minor poor use of language. 

Ok. Meeting done. Really I had no reason to be worried. He was just so desperate for any type to help he could get. So basically that's why he wants me. haha Anyways I'm  super excited about it. Try-outs start March 8 and the Tournaments are in June. So I have to stay for spring which is kind of a bummer. But it's worth it for lacrosse. :)

This Valentine's Day

I've always kind of hated the pity parties girls throw themselves 
on Valentine's Day/every time they see a couple. 

I understand why it's upsetting and why it's a reminder how pathetically single you are but still. 

You may be single but you aren't alone. 
Don't forget all the wonderful people you have around you that love you.

I have so many people what I really love and that really love me. 
And this Valentine's Day I'm going to focus on that love.

So join me fellow singles! 
Focus on the love you have not the love you wish you had.
