obligatory thankful post.

i'm a huge fan of looking back and seeing how i felt a year, 2 years, 10 years ago.
so i know you're all sick of seeing these sappy posts, but someday i'd like to look back at this and know what i'm thankful for.
so here, in 2012, i'm thankful for:

-school. i made the right choice by transferring, and i am happier than i have been in a long, long time.
-pride and prejudice. and by extension, the lizzie bennet diaries.
-chai tea.
-doctor who.
-my job. francesca's is a wonderful company, and i have the sweetest, funniest, best co-workers in the world. how rare to actually enjoy going to work.
-carey mulligan.
-top knots and leather jackets and big gold watches.
-the writing of john green, sarah dessen, and david levithan.
-a patient mother, a caring father, a hilarious sister, an intelligent brother.
-andrew garfield and emma stone's relationship.
-parks and recreation.
-friends in states all over the country, and few a little farther out.
-my church. when i left school and moved back here, i was able to find a loving community that inspires my ever-changing faith. 
-nick, my best friend and confidante and love of my life.
-pitch perfect, celeste and jesse forever, ruby sparks, the perks of being a wallflower.
-my trip to arizona in march, where i got to spend time with 3 of my best friends in the whole wide world-kate, marci and lauren.
-liam, niall, zayn, harry and louis.
-netflix. bless it.
-the pair app, which is technically an app for couples in long distance relationship, but that leila and i use for each other.
-lady heroes, both real life and fictional. (tami taylor, the gilmore girls, buffy summers, leslie knope, and so on.)
-ed sheeran and his music. (and the fact that my very best friend in the world won tickets to a private ed sheeran concert next month and she's taking ME.)
-the internet. it's cliche, but it has brought me more happiness than i could have ever imagined, because it has brought me all of YOU. i love each and every one of you who takes the time to read the nonsense posted here, on tumblr and on twitter. you are all so witty, and kind, and some of the smartest people i know. whether we talk each day or we've never spoken at all, i appreciate you. 

i hope you had a great day today, my loves. 
(be careful out there tomorrow.)
