Surefire way to feel 100 times better…

August 24, 2010

…even if you weren’t feeling that badly to begin with.

For the last few days I have been on a organizing/cleaning my room kick.  I have some goals for moving my furniture around a bit and changing my desk from “place to pile paper” to actual work space.  As part of that I dumped the huge pile hidden under the roll-top of my desk on the floor and have been paper sorting.  Most of the time this is pretty dull work, but parts of it are pretty awesome.

For example going through the accumulated letters and cards I have received for the past 8 years or so.  The (several!) letters Steph wrote me the summer she was in Oregon and I was in Northern Ireland.  The card that someone (who instigated this?) had lots of my friends sign for me while I was spending the semester down in Indianapolis.  The regular (like clockwork) cards I have received from my Aunt Mary.  The hilarious postcard from David in which he replied to my tweet from Europe. The many birthday messages and general wonderful cards I have received from girl friends over the years full of appreciation, encouragement, random news & gossip and the general feeling of support.  Sometimes I forget how insanely lucky I am to have so many supportive and wonderful friends in my life.  So if you are one of those people who have written me (letters, cards, emails, postcards, blog comments) over the years, Thank you!
