Long Overdue

Ok I know I haven't blogged in 2 months but that's all about to change very soon. I turn 25 next week and so I decided to make 26 goals to accomplish before I turn 26. One of them is to blog once a week but I won't give away the other 25 just yet...

A few funny things happened today and I thought I would share them as my kickoff post to a year of consistent blogging.

1) I should preface this story with letting you know that I never fall asleep facing the wall. I've always kept my bed in a position that if I sleep on a certain side I can see every aspect of the room when I open my eyes. I'm pretty paranoid especially when it's dark and so I like to open my eyes at random and make sure nothing scary is in my room. This might be why I've always had a hard time falling asleep. With that being said, every morning my alarm goes off around 5:40. Lately, I've been waking up earlier though because it is starting to get bright pretty early here and so I can't sleep. This morning I woke up around 5:25 and to my surprise I was facing the wall. I never wake up in this position. To my horror I truly truly thought I heard someone breathing heavily in my room. Naturally, I stayed very still for a few seconds then jerked my head around and to my surprise, but I'm sure no one else's, there was no one in my apartment. Of course I couldn't fall back asleep so I kept opening my eyes because I kept hearing it. I even thought, "could that possibly be my breathing?" So I held my breath but no it was still going. I would like to say at this time that it WAS early in the morning and I had only had about 5 1/2 hours of sleep so I was quite groggy. Finally I realized... it was my neighbor, Kelsey's, alarm. It was so muted through the wall that it seriously sounded like heavy breathing. When we were walking to work I asked her if her alarm goes off at 5:25 and sure enough it does.

2) Today Kelsey and I went to the store to pick up groceries and get pictures printed. While we were waiting for our pictures to develop we decided to get a drink at Starbucks. When we sat down these two girls starting whispering and laughing at us. This really isn't completely unusual... probably due to our beautiful looks and humorous vibe that we give off. Finally after we finished drinking we got up to leave and Kelsey hears, "sumi masen". That means excuse me in Japanese. So she turns towards them and they don't say anything. So I guess they said it again (I was throwing away my trash but came right back). This time, with much gesturing and hand motions, they asked us (in Japanese) to edit something in English. It looked like they were teaching some story and had probably used something like freetranslations.com to translate it to English. So we sat down and edited their story hahaha. Every time we made a correction they would nod and say "ooooohhh" or "the" which is what we kept adding. It was pretty entertaining. Then they bowed to us about 1,000 times and thanked us over and over again.

I'll leave you with this picture of me, Ally, and Kelsey at Disney Sea two weekends ago. Yes we went again! How could we not after the joy of our last trip. If you read my last post on Disney.... yes I bought a Duffy. Best/Worst decision I ever made? Of course! And do you spy three hair accessories in my hair? Yes you do! There was another one on the back. More to come about that later... I'll save it for a week when I have nothing else to write about :).

Maybe one goal for your 26 goals should be to wear one of those "beautiful" hair accessories once a week when you return to the states. Maybe you could start a trend - or not! I'm glad you are having a good time and I'm even hapier there wasn't a "boogey" man in your room. :) Love you and miss you!!!
