you know those times?

those times when you are at work

     and there are 4 more hours of sitting to go…

those times when you don’t know what to write about

but you start writing anyway…

those times when you read blogs 

and you know you shouldn’t, but you can’t help but just want to be married…and pregnant…

those times when you get left and right wrong, again

and you feel like a complete idiot, again…

those times when you just want to paint proportionally incorrect baby animals,

and then do:

those times when you are so excited to meet the boyfriend’s family

but still feel a little nervous inside…

those times when you realize how much your family means to you

and know that without them, life would have just been rough…

those times when the peace and rest that Christ provides is so surrounding you

that you are amazed that the God of the universe would love you so much…

those times when you steal your brother’s scarf and do a shoot in the sand,

in clear view of nearly every person’s apartment window on campus…

more…

those times when you feel so sad

that you know the only thing to do is to eat dark chocolate and listen to Michael Buble…

those times when you finally understand something

and are able to move on with clarity…

those times when you  realize how much Disney shows really distort how relationships should

start, be and end

and you can not believe that it is actually a major influence shaping the thoughts of children today…

those times when you stand up really quickly,

and then everything just goes black for about 15 seconds…

those times when you go to the eye doctor 

and know that your glasses selection will be limited because they need to be able to handle the -12 and -11.75 lenses that allow you to see anything, ever…

those times when you are driving on the road

and then you are driving on the curb and the sidewalk…

those times when you don’t think you could love NYC any more

and then it becomes Fall…

those times when you drink a tall cold glass of water

and feel like you have never been happier in your life…

those times when you go to Plato’s Closet

and buy 19 dresses, shirts and shoes, although you were just looking for shorts…

those times when you can cross one more day off of the countdown

and know that no matter what, time keeps moving…

those times when you feel so much affection for a boy

that the only thing to do is take a deep breath and whisper ‘i love you’ …

.

you know those times?

or is it just me.

One thought on “you know those times?

  1. Um, your painting is awesome. One of your siblings was talking about how great it was. 🙂 I’m having some of those times right now.

    They go something like this:

    those times when you mix up right and left and wonder if you were meant to be a leftie but were trained as a right-handed person (and how different your life would be if you were a leftie)…

    those times when you’re at work and you have the entire afternoon to do “stuff” and you end up doing crossword puzzles or jigsaw puzzles because you don’t want your brain to atrophy…

    those times when you are full to bursting of creativity and end up in a crafting frenzy until the wee hours of the morning because you don’t know when you’ll get a few hours to yourself again…

    Anyway. That’s me. Your post was awesome. I love the way you write. That is all.
