to remember for 2012

New Years resolutions at their finest...Here's a list of a few things that I want to keep in mind and appreciate more in the next year:

1. Reuniting with someone you love at the airport

2. The morning after a night of rain

3. Walking in to a warm building after being in the cold outside

4. Silence after a crazy day

5. Those times where your back pops perfectly

6. When your teacher uses your work as a good example

7. Lit up Christmas trees!

8. Songs that give you the chills

9. A hot shower after a great work out

10. Listening to your favorite song live at a concert

11. When you talk to an old friend and it's like nothing has changed

12. The feeling you get after putting on chapstick

13. When you try something on and it fits perfectly

14. That extra hour of sleep after daylight savings

15. Colors of autumn

16. Getting your homework done in class

17. Crossing something off your bucket list

18. The way you smell right after a shower

19. Sunsets! Nothing beats a sunset

20. Looking back over pictures on your way home from a trip

21. When you end up having more time to get things done than you thought you did

22. That moment of realizing that you've come a long way in life and that you're happy with where you are

23. When the person hugs back tighter

24. The sound when you open a bottle of Mt. Dew

25. Going to bed without setting an alarm and realizing you get to sleep as long as you want

26. When you drop something and it doesn't even break

27. That first deep breath when you come up from under water

28. That moment you realize your period is finally over (or that your girlfriends is)

29. Being in a fantastic mood for no real reason, "just because"

30. Waking up and realizing you have more time to sleep

Life really is all about the little things :) Take more time to enjoy them next year!

In my class today, an arguement came up about chivalry and how girls are so difficult to understand. It then launched in to how we can be super difficult to please because every girl wants "a guy that will fit the bill for anything then want. If you're rich...your girl is happy!" Wow! My friend Lenzie and I also talked about this on our way to Logan not so long ago. This couldn't be more wrong and I found something on my friend Nicole's blog that perfectly summed up what we really want: We want a boy that holds our hand. We want the guy that kisses our foreheads, not just shoves his tongue down our throat. We don't need a whole bouquet of extravegant flowers, even a single rose would be awesome. Girls understand that life can be crazy. We don't need to talk to you for four hours every single night, but it means the world when you call for just 2 minutes to say hi and see how things are going. Don't lie to us. Ever. There's a special place in hell for the boys that turn us into objects and get upset or rude when they don't get exactly what they want. Opening the door occasionally goes a long ways! And I can't even tell you how much it means to be called beautiful or pretty instead of "hot" and "sexy" isn't even attractive.

Dear Boy in Class,

I promise we aren't that hard to figure out or please.

Just do the thinking with the right head and you're golden!

And major props to those actual men that do treat us right :)
