today i went to starbucks to get coffee. this is unusual for me on a saturday morning because typically i view a triple venti skinny latte with cinnamon (the real stuff, not that horribly syrupy shit that makes me sick) as a treat or relief during the week, i.e. i make a starbucks run when i MUST GET OUT OF THAT BUILDING. usually, it helps me survive. (seriously, yall, i like my job, but sometimes - and i'm sure everyone feels like this - those walls feel very tight and confining and on those days i NEVER feel guilty for using my planning period to run around in the fresh air...)
but this morning i have been up and running, so i decided to swing by. i got my drink and actually remembered to read the quote on the side. it is one of the best i have ever read off of a cup and it may, just may, be the best representation of my life philosophy. i may have to steal it for a future resume or job application. do you think it would be looked upon poorly to quote a starbucks cup when trying to get a new job?
our prejudices arise from the fear of things we do not understand. if my generation has a single goal, it must be to promote education - education that advances us not only technologically, but also intuitively and emotionally. in today's fast-paced world, advancing has to mean more than scientific discovery; it is our responsibility to force ourselves beyond our comfort zones and become knowledgeable about the people around us. - jessica arden ettinger
THE reason i am up and going today is that i got a call from haverty's at 8:30 that they would be at my door in 30 minutes . . . and they were!!! so i've gots a new bed. now i am feeling quite motivated to hang up all of the stuff on the walls in my place. you know, all of that stuff i've had for like a year that is still just leaning up against furniture? yep. that stuff. maybe by the end of the weekend it will look like i live here again.
not that you REALLY care, but here is my bed . . . and it is MADE.
