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.

Quick Christmas Update!

I wanted to check in to say I had a lovely Christmas, and I will continue to have a lovely Christmas until January 6, the Epiphany. I was lucky to receive some thoughtful gifts, such as Tupperware from Jed (yes, I got so excited about my new plastic storage!), a kick-ass blender from my sister, a cozy ski hat from my parents along with fleece sweatshirts and scarves, and my annual trip to Bretton Woods, NH from my aunt!

I ate a lot, I partook in some wine and spiked eggnog, I played a festive hostess (twice), and I finally got caught up on sleep!

There will be more updates tomorrow, but for now, you can peruse this extended survey I found at You Had Me At Hello. Feel free to copy, just comment back so I can go read it!
