Party on a Wednesday

I am scared to breathe and relax my muscles right now because I feel like I shouldn't be able to. I'm done. I spent all day working on a project yesterday and now I'm done, more than 24 hours later. It feels so good.

I will feel even better in about 8 hours, once I've given my presentation.

I need rest. I need to sit and be still. I need to laugh and smile and allow my brain to wind down and clear itself. That time will come at 8:30 tonight. I'm already excited about it!

My friend Kelly sent me this video today:

I am SO excited. I love this show!
I can't wait until September 27th.
I'm squealing with delight!

I need to do major cleaning and organizing around my duplex. It looks like I just moved in. My room is semi-organized, but not to the standard it needs to be. I also need to go grocery shopping. I think I own about 5 food products in this house.

Do you ever just want to throw a party for the heck of it? Not a kegger. A real, fun, dress-up, cook all day, lots of food, lots of people, big, over-the-top party. I want to throw one. For no reason. A celebration of life, of joy, of friends and relationships. I want to wear a dress and high heels. It must be a dream of mine, because I never get to dress up. I also want to wear an apron and cook food for the party all day. I want to decorate and have candles and fun music playing. I want to sit around a table with my favorite people and share stories and laughter. Maybe I'm just cheesy, but this sounds like a lot of fun to me. I think parties are fun, but no one has parties like this for no reason anymore. Weddings are the closest thing, I think. Oh, another thing, I don't want people drunk at my party. That just ruins things. There may be alcohol at my party, but people will be smart and mature about it. I also want a photographer running around capturing everything. Candid, natural shots. The only problem with me throwing a party like this is that I am poor. I have no money to do things like this. Maybe one day, when I'm a rich teacher (ha) I will throw one. I think it would also be cool to have all ages at this party. But then I'd have to get rid of the alcohol. That's ok, I guess. Kids are more fun, anyways.

I have one hour before I need to leave to go to class. I think I will spend that time dancing around my room, singing and cleaning it up.

Enjoy this Wednesday. It's grey, cloudy and will probably rain. I love it.


P.S. The picture at the top of this blog is called "Celebration." I really like it!
