40 Days of 4 Things, Day 11

Today I woke up with the most inconvenient ailment

My neck hurts so badly.  I guess I must have slept on it wrong, but that still only makes sense if I was for some reason doing handstands in my sleep.  I'm not saying that I definitely wasn't trying out for the 2012 Olympics in my slumber, but that doesn't even make that much sense.  I don't think I've ever even wanted to be a Korean gymnast.

Yesterday was an amazing day

You know those kinds of days when everything is just amazing?  Those types of days where your favorite nineties songs like "Ride that Pony" by Ginuwine are on the radio, and everything you want to buy is on sale?  Yesterday was like that, but more than that.  For the first time I felt just honestly happy for a while.  Not just because I've been upset lately, just I feel like I've lost myself somewhere recently.  I really believe that you can't really be happy with others.  Not that you can't have a good time with friends or family, I just think that the only way you can truly be at peace is alone.  I'm at my happiest when alone in my car going about that day's travels, singing along to the radio, eating fast food, shouting obscenities at passerby, dancing with only the middle third of my body.  Yesterday seemed to be the perfect day for all for that.  I am thankful for it.

Yesterday I got to plan

I like to travel, but not nearly as much as I like thinking about traveling.  As you know, and are probably getting sick of hearing about at this point, I am going to Tennessee next weekend, which should be almost fun.  The part I really like about it is, the buying, and preparing, and the planning that leads u p to every trip I take.  I need to know every detail, every possible situation that could arise.  I just like being in control, so much that sometimes it gets in the way of the actual fun of the trip.  I'm okay with that though.

 People are being really awesome

I just wanted to thank my friends Kelli, and Luci who have been really supportive of my blog as of late.  Kelli by writing about it on her own blog, and Luci for sending me several amazing text messages.    You are both awesome.

:) This was good. I needed to read this today. You are so philosophic on accident sometimes, and it's magical. Thank you, Jordan, for writing all these blogs. This is perfect.

So which part was philosophical so that I might recreate it. You are right I generally just stumble upon ideas without teton to create them.

Magic.

I am so glad that the other day was good for you, Jordan. You deserve to be happy...not just when screaming curse words at people (although that is pretty good) but all the time. :)
