Grateful

Hello, all internet turkeys (and pigs)! Hey, y’all!

So, here in America we celebrate this day called Thanksgiving, and it’s a day that supposedly originated from pilgrims not knowing how to grow food in their new land (that’s true, we clueless white people were very clueless and often racist ) so there were some very kind Native Americans that did know how to grow food to help them out by sharing a meal all as one big group (this meal did not happen, p. sure, but maybe it did, so let’s pretend it did anyway). Today, though, this meal has become a family time to eat certain foods (like turkeys and pigs–sorry, friends) and spend time together (and watch football, but all in the name of thankfulness).

 

Today, we want to spend some time telling y’all what the day is really about, though, which is things we are thankful for and spending some time thinking about those things.

So, here’s a list, dudes:

 

 

  1. Reunions with friends (like with our friend K who has moved off for school not too long ago; thankfully getting together with her is like picking up right where we left off).
  2. Late nights with friends doing a number of random things (YouTube videos, mouse chasing, horror movies, espresso making, etc.) and probably not knowing what on earth we were doing but trying anyway.
  3. This blog, duh. Even though this year has had it’s difficulties with us being able to post together. I love this blog and all it represents and I know ACG does too. AMEN
  4. Chances to grow and do more “grown up” things, both as friends and by ourselves. Learning who we are and how we fit into this world around us is an experience that occasionally hurts but I am so thankful to have.
  5. On a super serious note, recovering and healing from some dark times, for having best friends who help you grow from pain and keep fighting on bad days.
  6. Family, particularly my brother that lets me call him a schmiegel (based on the villians in a horror movie) and offers to beat people up to protect me (or AJA) at the drop of a hat (and totally could because he’s strong enough to crush a man with his pinkie).
  7. Second (& third) families. The families that aren’t biologically related but still claim you, take care of you, and help you become your best.
  8. Late night (or middle of the afternoon) conversations with AJA about life, liberty, and all the things we don’t actually have time to talk about on a regular basis. (Also things that may sound like dumb questions but we entertain and talk about anyway, since everyone needs [at least] a friend like that in their life.) (Strangely enough, I was thankful for this one last year, too, although I’m not entirely sure why. ;P)
  9. Learning lots of things from traditional education things to things about each other and ourselves, new experiences (something I’m becoming more thankful for each year), and new ways of thinking.
  10. Things falling into place how they’re supposed to. They may not have always made sense at first, and not everything is perfect or anywhere close to smooth. But things are becoming what they were always supposed to be, and with that comes the knowledge that life happens in some pretty mysterious ways that end up being the best for everyone. That’s true ❤ so grateful for the fact things do always go the way they ought to in the end.

 

Keep your cornucopia close and your heart closer! ❤ ;P 🙂 😀 😉 O.o
Drive safely ❤

After Effects

Hey y’all! It’s still just ACG here again tonight. AJA is still dealing with the after effects of what’s happened with her grandmother, so she’s not with us tonight.

We plan to be back next week, so keep your mice in the pool and your feathers in the freezer! ❤ 😉 😛 🙂 😀 O.o

Hard Times

Hey y’all! It’s ACG here and I just wanted to let y’all know what’s kind of been going on in our lives. AJA’s grandmother is really sick right now and so that’s why we’re not both on tonight is because her and C are at her grandmother’s house with her. I know all of our thoughts and heart to going out to AJA and her family right now as they face down sickness and loss.

Keep your lives close and your loved ones closer!  ❤ 🙂 :/ ;P 😉 😀

Gaining Time with Friends

Hey, y’all! Hi!
AJA and I have had a pretty great day, even though we were only together for probably 10% of it. It was amazing, despite not being together much. For different reasons. Lots of reasons. Time oriented, people oriented reasons.

I spent time with C because this marks 1 year of us admitting we might at least like tolerate each other and ACG got some family time and some productivity time. All of this to say: time is important. So, why does it change? The productivity was limited, but in my defense my computer battery was dying. As to why time changes? Some old smart guy decided that was the best way to do things and then a group of more old smart guys agreed. Thus, we now have this thing called “Daylight Savings Time” (unless you live in certain places like Hawaii or Arizona in the United States). Those obnoxious smart old dudes. @) OH well, at least we get an extra hour for now. 😉

Another great thing that happened today is we got to see our friend, K! The other most significant member of our party 😉 (ha…haha…. Hamilton reference lol It was a truly beautiful reference. I’m proud of you. For knowing the musical I introduced you to? 😉 But thanks, lol). 

(I know this post is a trainwreck, I’m in a sleep-deprived, post-clinicals, anniversary and pain endorphin highs state of mind, so I’m like a little extra giggly tonight @) I don’t know that it’s a trainwreck, maybe just touching on a couple more subtopics than we planned. ;P)

But really, seeing K was amazing. It had been a while (that’s what happens when you move 3 hours away), and she’s the kind of friend that you don’t realize just how much you’ve missed her until you’re picking right back up where you left off and there’s too much to say before time runs out. That’s true! Really… She is that kind of friend, that everything falls into place when she’s back but unfortunately, she has to leave again soon after. Yeah, that part stinks, but the good news is that Thanksgiving is coming up so we get a chance to see her for a bit longer then, and it’ll be great!

 

Keep your shoes high and your apples in the dryer! ❤ 🙂 ;P 😉 😀 O.o
Drive safely, dudes! ❤
