I suck at working out.
All last school year I ran all the time and considered myself in shape
Suddenly it's summer and I can't get myself to do a darn thing
Let me tell you, I could use a little cardio
I just always have things I would rather be doing besides hitting the treadmill, you know?
Buuuttttttttt I want to be proud of my body like I used to be
So I need to keep running, even when I don't want to
which is always
Hopefully in a couple months I'll have a blog update about my awesome abs

You ever get to the point where you're so sleepy that the thought of doing one more small task is mortifying?

I'm there.

An elephant never forgets

Sometimes I feel like I'm alone on the journey
But I know I'm not
I am feeling extra thankful for the supportive people in my life today

On days that I miss my mom I can always think about them
and know that it will be alright
It reminds me that there's always a plan and I don't necessarily understand God's timing

I just hate waiting

(hate hate hate hate it)
You ever just want to know what's gonna happen next?
It's like, of course I want to read the last five chapters of a book, but that doesn't mean it's not tempting to just take a glance at the last page...

The God who can bring me back to life again

I am a flower quickly fading
here today and gone tomorrow
a wave tossed in the ocean
vapor in the wind
still You hear me when I'm calling
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling
and You told me who I am
I am Yours.Whom shall I fear?
Whom shall I fear?
I am Yours.

Sat Turd Day

Today started with an alarm at 4:35 AM
That's what I get for taking a job involving coffee
But I was surprisingly awake the whole morning and even willingly stayed late at work
I came home and headed for the gym at my apartment complex

because I have recently commenced Operationg-Get-Olivia-Back-Into-Shape
I ran about two miles but it felt like
a million.
I guess that's what happens when you don't run for a month

But now I'm feeling pretty good seeing as I got a lot done today already
My plan for the rest of the day involved laying around by the pool but it's actually a little windy and not amazingly warm
So now, I guess I will finish all the little things I need to do that I keep putting off
such as:
1. Do the dishes
2. Get all my papers together to apply for a passport
3. See when our neighbors are free for sushi night
4. Get info on a Human Resources major
5. Find out what I will be doing for the 4th of July
(I don't make plans)
6. Marvel over the Harry Potter trailer for the millionth time

I may or may not have gone on a huge shopping spree today
This is why people shouldn't let me go to the mall by myself!
I have shoppers guilt.
Anyway, despite feeling guilty about spending so much money, I had a great time
As always, I love the new clothes I bought, and I am positive I'll actually wear all of it
Also, I met up with Nat at the mall since she is now employed at Lucky Brand Jeans
She is awesome. Just awesome.

So anyway, I am excited for the 4th of July!
Unfortunately I work at 4:30 AM the next morning so I probably won't be partying all night long or anything
Hopefully it will involve mostly the beach
So now I'm off to fill my already full closet with my new additions

Happy Day!

Things that make me really happy today:
1. the wonderful sunshine

2. my trip to Oregon coming up
3. the smell of fresh cut grass outside

4. the most adorable bunnies in the world that live by my apartment

5. my cute boyfriend

Sometimes the simplest days make the best days.

Frappy Hour

Starbucks is all-around an awesome job.
There are a few things I would change if I could, but I don't hate my job so that's always a bonus.
I really like the regulars. There are these people who come in multiple times a day and get the same thing EVERY TIME. So crazy. But they always make for a good story or two.
An older man today kept coming up to ask if I have a boyfriend. Of course I told him yes but he wanted to know all about us and our relationship.
Not all of them are creepy though.
Just some....
(cough) guy who works at pick-up-stix (cough)
But I have found lately that coffee consumes my life on so many levels. First of all, it's my job to make and serve coffee so I am working with it. I basically always smell like it. I am a human coffee bean. I feel bad for Brock, he doesn't even like coffee but he gets to smell a whole lot of it.
I never knew how much work goes into making all the drinks.
It freaks me out that people come in and order a triple venti, ristretto, half-caf, soy, no foam, upside down, extra hot, caramel macchiato with extra caramel sauce....and I know what that means.
Sometimes before I fall asleep, the last thing I think about is making a drink or something to do with that day at work. I have so many recipes and random information about coffee spinning around in my head that it's hard to turn it off.
All this to say, I enjoy being a barista, even on the hard days (hard days being those starting anytime before 7am).
But coffee is now a part of me.
Starbucks is now offering Olive Roast.
