Doing Nothing

So I am a little bit morally opposed to even mentioning this brooding "storm", that is apparently big enough to shut down BYU, because EVERYONE has been talking about it. I didn't want to be one of those people.
But here I am. Mentioning the storm.

I only mention it because Braden and Alysha are out of town, and CC is popular. Meaning, I have very little to do on this winter break, during this HUGE storm.

Though you all had some valuable suggestions on my last post, I have yet to get around to doing any of them... sorry..
The reason why though, is because I have discovered I like doing nothing.

Today I spent some quality time at Borders with my mom, then ate dinner with Dad, and finally spent the rest of the night wrapped in a blanket by my mom's cute new christmas tree, reading.
Reading a book that I bought and will also finish tonight. Thanks to a suggestion by a friend :)
I thought I would be bored, and lonely, missing a few of my favorite people, but I am perfectly content. My house is quite, the storm outside makes being inside even more satisfying, my book is entertaining, and my parents are adorable.

It is so easy, at least for me, to get caught up in the stress of school, my unhealthy desire for new clothes, and feeling the need to spend all my free time having fun with friends. I am one of those annoying teenagers. How depressing.
My day of family, reading, and relaxing has been refreshing. I honestly feel healthier, like I had a little life detox.

So on day 1 of my official thanksgiving break, I am Grateful for the simple things.
Like my cute family and a good book :)

What are you thankful for?

  1. Yay!!! You got the book! Don't you love it??? Well I hope you do. My favorite nights are the ones where I sit at my at home and read and watch TV all snuggled up. It's the best :)
