A master thief when he died, Mercer offers to teach Callie his criminal ways and how to turn them against her old job and kick off a nationwide crime spree.

Grateful Friday

Hey friends. I’m feeling hella grateful today. Some of the things I’m feeling grateful for:

New friends. Man. I know I keep saying this, but I have wanted some new friends since I moved back here three years ago. I guess I didn’t really have room in my life though; my head wasn’t in the right place to put myself out there or be open to others. But now it is and I can’t believe the awesome people coming into my life. They’re not just cool because we get along and I think they’re cool; they’re really cool*. Like, they are people I saw on Instagram and was like man I want to be friends with them. and BOOM. Now we’re friends. And I love it. Being open to things you want in your life really does let so much goodness flow in. In the words of another fellow gratitude preacher, Jason Mraz, open up your mind and see like me, open up your plans and damn you’re free, look into your heart and you’ll find love love love.

Tulip the cat. I know. I’m always grateful for her. But come on. Look at this little nugget. She brings me a lot of peace and joy.

Decking the halls. This weekend I am going to get my Christmas tree. I’m going to my favorite Christmas tree farm from when I was a kid**. And there will be lights and decorating and music and I will be one happy clam. 

Trip planning. After I posted this, Karen/ariavie reached out to me and said she was thinking about a late January trip to AZ. So I reached out to Sam/Desert Child and my college girlfriend (who I would stay with) about that timing and everyone was all hell yes, so I’m looking at flights and dates. Bad ass babe time here I come. I do not blame you for the sudden feeling of jealousy that just washed over you. 

Spontaneity. One of the best things about my life right now is that if there’s something I want to do, I do it. Whoa. What a concept. Want to kick off work early for a woodland adventure with a friend and then hit our favorite watering hole after? Done. Want to learn my favorite Christmas song on the guitar? Done. Want to take some trips to places I have been longing to visit for years? Done. Want to see my favorite people multiple times a month? Done. Want to up my running game? Done. Do it all babes. It feels so good and it gets you unstuck.***

Just me. I feel so good being myself lately. I’m not hiding, or pretending, or putting up a smoke screen to cover up what is really going on in my life, or worrying about my outward persona. This is me. If people don’t like it they can walk away. I once let all the good things about myself fall away; they were snatched up and I let them be taken. I let them be buried underground where they froze stiff and lifeless through a long, long winter. But I have dug them up and warmed my hands by the fire and look at that, they have come back to life blooming and joyful. The rewards; the love, the friendship, the adventures, the happiness, the fulfillment; that come from being yourself are so much greater than any measly reward that comes from covering yourself up and pretending to be someone another person would rather see. 

I hope you all have the most wonderful, restorative weekend. I’m certainly looking forward to it. In fact, I’m already looking forward to next week, and next weekend too. Lots of good things on the docket.

What are you grateful for today?

*My high school self is totally ecstatic at how cool everyone is.
**I know. You probably think that because I live in the woods in Maine I like to go out and cut my own tree off my land. You probably think this was one of my great, romantic, childhood traditions. You are wrong. While I love Charlie Brown’s Christmas special I do not have any romantic notions about a Charlie Brown tree in real life. Give me the big, tall, full, perfect Christmas tree every. year. Believe me. Perfect trees are pretty damn romantic. 
***except sometimes you have to get unstuck first.

THEY HIRED THE NEW TEACHER!!! FOR ALL I KNOW THIS IS MY LAST DAY SUBBING HERE :D:D:D:D

I just had a terrible wonderful pxs fic idea:

Teacher/student au where there’s like a forum that the students use to talk about teachers - ie who’s good/bad, how are the tests, etc. And there’s a thread dedicated to talking about teacher crushes and stuff. Sansa being curious looks through and anonymously talks about her obvs crush towards Petyr. Only that Petyr is fully aware of this site and the thread and that Sansa’s using it

idk lol
