lessons in awesome, part 2

before reading, reacquaint yourself with part 1. okay, got it? have you mastered this step? yes? oh, good because you can't skip ahead here or it won't work.

surround yourself with awesome. since you have stopped acknowledging the non-awesome entities (and most of the less awesome ones), you have inevitably become quite good at recognizing the more awesome ones. now you must embrace the awesome like never before. eat awesome food, read awesome books, have awesome friends, do awesome things etc. the more you're around it, the more it will rub off on you. when you've properly adopted this practice you will be ready for the next step.

rise and shine

didn't hit the snooze button for maybe the first time ever. worth it? remains to be seen.

wardrobe malfunction

i wore a skirt just because. turns out, skirts really aren't that bad. i'm not about to start wearing one every day, but...

i didn't make my bed yesterday. not even right before i got into it last night (i do that a lot, make my bed right before crawling into it). i didn't think about it all day long, and it didn't affect my quality of sleep at all.
i made my bed today anyway. it just looks better that way.

i slept on the other side of the bed last night. not exactly life changing, but i can now officially declare that i am, in fact, an ambi-sleeper.

experiential experiments

maybe i just have too much time on my hands, but i spent a good portion of the day today thinking about human behavior. okay, to be honest, i was really just thinking about my behavior. i'm selfish that way. i was thinking about all the things i do everyday, you know, the routine. it's not so much about what i do, as it is about why i do it. why, for example, do i get into and out of bed on the same side of the bed? why do i always put my right shoe on first? why? does it matter? i don't know. maybe the best way to get out of a rut is to find out. after all, what is a routine if not a rut? and what is life if not an experiment? so here's the deal, i have decided that i will make one small change in my behavior every day for the next month. 30 days of experimental behavior and it all begins tonight...
