Thankful.



Lazy Saturdays; photos taken by Acke ;-)
It is cold outside, but I am thankful for;
  • My trip to Trinidad and Tobago (in 18 days!)
  • Colette; my current 'short' story that has taken a life and length of its own.
  • Lazy Saturdays, or Mondays or Wednesdays, or any days I can lounge around my house without being preoccupied by homework, work shifts or other projects.
  • My new lovely camera. I have named it 'Acke', by the way. It is a very reliable, yet pricey, Canon Rebel. You get what you pay for, and Acke doesn't disappoint.
  • My fat orange cat, Felix, who, even after 12 years, never fails to make me laugh with his bad behavior.

  • This little jewel of a blog where I have purchased a beautiful phoenix printed set of cups, 70's Japanese mugs, gorgeous snake leather belts, Mexx goat gloves and my awesome Jet stream burgundy carry-all. Mary Jane sells vintage quality goods at ludicrously (in a good way) low prices.
  • Sade's 'Soldier of love' CD. Sigh.
  • Having a laptop, all to myself after months of borrowing my sister's computer. Yes, I have given it a name! My laptop is named 'Astrid', after the subliminal character in 'White Oleander', one of my favorite books.
  • My school; my teachers and my classmates are bright, passionate and it's never a displeasure to go to class!

  • Libraries and Bookstores!

  • My new volunteer position at the Aids Comunity Care Center :-)
  • Although Spring is around the corner, I truly appreciate Winter's realm.

What are you thankful for?

P.S There is a contest at the Colors magazine; they are chosing 12 best blog entries of the year, then one entry will be picked and a prize will be offered to the winning blogger. I am participating, if you want to join me, click here.

Those pictures are fabulous, as are you. I'm thankful for great friends. I was just in a wedding and had a great time meeting new people and growing closer with old friends. Also, the internet is amazing. Because of my connection with people thru the web, I just scored a free ticket to see In the Heights!
