Received flowers today❤️ I was about to thank the wrong Patty! No wonder my supervisor was looking at me like I was crazy! Thanks, @pattyconway! #librarianlove (at Richmond Public Library)

I am thankful for stealing post ideas from Paul

Things for which I am thankful:

  • My awesomely geeky parents.  They are my favorite people.
  • My little bro, who is slowly embracing his genetic predisposition to geekiness.
  • The three best friends of all time: Kaitlin, Caroline, and Madeline. Their families. The men who understand their greatness and love them as much as I do.
  • My boys.
  • My UGA Housing family. My new friends at school.
  • My internet friends. They are real people I swear! They keep me sane and entertained living by myself in the ‘ville.
  • Books, books, and more books.
  • Finishing grad school and getting my dream job. (!)
  • The First Amendment.
  • RPM (Manday is forever!).
  • Terrapin Rye.
  • Sweaters (especially v-neck and cardigan). Scarves of all varieties. 
  • The high school students I get to work with every day. Their maturity/immaturity, humor, insight, and energy make it an absolute joy to head to the Media Center at 6:45 am.
  • The concerts that keep me from feeling like too much of a grown up.
  • Television show recaps (especially from Vulture).
  • Netflix, which makes living in a town without the Vision Video (and in an apartment without cable) tolerable.
  • The arsenal of hair care products keeping my curls in check.
  • Ankle length pants.
  • Soy and tofu dairy-like foodstuffs.
  • My electric toothbrush (seriously, I was brushing off the enamel before).
  • Online bank accounts and the truths they reveal.

Things I could do without:

  • Laptop carts and copy machines.
  • Christmas music on any day but Christmas.
  • People with no understanding of personal space.
  • My impatience. (Waiting is)
  • My filthy mouth (it’s only a problem at work, but sometimes it is a struggle).
  • Lactose intolerance.
