It's OK Thursday

Isn't it great to remind yourself that everything is a-ok?  Sometimes the stress of work and life can get in the way, so I love taking a step back and looking at things from a different angle.

It's ok... to get a little nostalgic over March Madness.  My freshman year of college, UCLA went to the Final Four so this time of year reminds me of lazy nights watching the games, amazing friends and extreme excitement all over campus.

It's ok... to introduce myself to the sweet couple that own a market across the street from my apartment.  We are going to become good friends over the next year!

It's ok... to address any packages I send to my family with 'Family' and nothing else. Easy peasy.

It's ok... to put up pictures and fun nesting touches instead of actually unpacking.

It's ok... to be positive and excited for life in spite of any negativity around me.  I like to smile, what can I say :)

It's ok... to enjoy wearing rain boots, but crave sunshine and summertime.

It's ok... to check Cute Overload way too often.  No shame.

It's ok...  to add a trip to J. Crew to my to-do list.

It's ok... to be a little smart phone illiterate.  I have two apps on my Droid, but hardly touch it since I am on the computer all day anyways.  Are there any Droid apps out that I should try?

It's ok... to get excited over a Hamlet reference at work.  They don't come up too often.

It's ok... to be stoked for St. Patrick's Day.  It's my people's holiday after all.

I have faith that our Bruins will have an epic comeback! Circa 2008.
Love ya Joe Bruin. Also from 2008.
Since my Bruins aren't doing so hot this year, I've been rooting for my sissy's team, the St. Mary's Gaels.  Hoping for some Cinderella moments!  Pic from summer 2009.
Linking up with Amber and Neely

  4. I think it's more than okay that you remain positive and smile even when there is negative around you. We should all try and do that more often!

    Hope you have a good Friday!

  6. The only app I ever use on my iPhone is the Facebook one. And that's usually just if I'm out somewhere and bored. I do check my email obsessively though, so a smart phone was a good idea!

  7. I have an Android - the App I'd most recommend is TuneIn Radio: It channels radio stations from around the world (seriously, everywhere - I can now tell you what the Top-40 is in Botswana!). That, and Facebook Messenger can save you a mint in texting charges.
