Blessings abound.

My head.  It feels like it's going to explode.  Slight problem.

I had a very productive Saturday.  Yay for productivity.  Granted, it wasn't as productive as I needed it to be, but I draw the line at reading a Comparative Politics textbook with a migraine.  So, you win some, you lose some.

I am so excited for tomorrow.  I think the last time I was this excited for a Monday was when I was about to fly to Nashville.  The Vespers just sort of do that to me.  Combine them with the opportunity for a girls night with one of my favorite people at this school, and I can't help how excited I get!

Matt and Simone broke up.  Again.  Except this one seems to have come out of the blue because the last time they got back together they seemed to be on the same page about everything.  It's interesting because this is the first time he's been through this that I haven't been completely in love with him.  Ha!  It just gives me a different perspective on it; I'm not so blinded by my feelings for him anymore that I can see his faults in it all.  Don't get me wrong; I am still fiercely protective of my best friend and hate little else in the world more than I hate seeing him hurt.  I'm just not so naive about it all anymore. :)  He says he's fine about it, and I'm sure he is right now, but it's going to hit him sooner or later, and then is when my heart is really going to break for him.  Like I said, there aren't many things I hate more than seeing him heartbroken.  He knows how much I love him, though, and I'm honored to be able to be there for him like he's been there for me so many times.  This is our "friend anniversary" month!  Ten years seems like a long time, but I can't remember life before I knew that kid.

Blessing of the day:  Danny, coincidentally one of the fantastic people I met in Nashville, wrote this when I texted him to ask if his band's EP would still be available at Christmas because it looks like that's the first time I'll have spending money: "Psh. Girl. Text me your address and I'll send you one!"  Guess what - people, as a whole, generally don't suck. :)

Paddy is North Carolina.

My hotel room for the College Democrats of America convention is reserved.

My ticket for Obama's acceptance speech is in Louis' possession.

I get to hang out with 5 of my best friends tomorrow.

Physical pain or no, how on earth can I complain?!
