Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.

More love than hate

Oh yes, Roses and Thorns is back this week! Hooray! Yes, I'm a cheeseball, and I know it. I was going to start doing Summer's It's Friday, I'm in Love series, but I need to be about to vent the Thorns -- because I don't vent very often here.

As always, Roses to the weekend! I don't have much in the way of plans this weekend, which is good since I'm suffering from a sinus infection, but I'm looking forward to a couple days off to rest and catch up on chores.

Roses to my BFF Ollie since it is her birthday tomorrow! Happy birthday, hun, I love you! On the journey to 30 together -- my birthday is exactly two weeks after hers.

Roses to getting a raise this year! Woot, woot.

Roses to my reflection today. It has very special meaning for me right now. Let's just say my fingers are crossed.


Thorns to stupid allergies and this stupid sinus infection. At least I'm on antibiotics now.

Thorns the cold weather yesterday. We've been enjoying 70's and 80's, then yesterday it barely hit 60. What?!?

Thorns to being broke.


I wish you all a wonderful weekend. If you have anything planned, do let me know so I can live vicariously through you!

Tomorrow I'm spending the evening out at an American Cancer Society event...the Phi Theta Kappa chapter at my school is hosting a team at Relay For Life, and we're selling hamburgers, hot dogs, and smores!

Then on Sunday I have anniversary dinner with my main squeeze! He's taking me to Olive Garden. :-)

Hope you feel better soon! <3

Congrats on your raise doll! Hopefully that will help the broke situation? I wish the dude would give me a raise. He paid me with slobbery kisses today. HA!

haha, I love this Roses/Thorns idea! Although I can't really empathize with cold weather . . . I'm flying back to California after a trip to Georgia (where I'm from) where it was literally in the mid 90's the whole time . . . with humidity like I've never felt--omg!
