{insert poetic thoughts}


Am I supposed to have lofty, poetic thoughts on my birthday? As I sit in my dorm lounge, eating pumpkin pie ice cream, and watching The Voice, I have no poetic thoughts. It's been an ordinary day, for the most part. Good, but ordinary. A lot of people let me know they love me, but my day looked the same as usual. Class. Work. Homework. Netflix. Treating myself to ice cream. 

I'm 19 now, which is hard to believe. But that's it. No big thoughts or keen insights now that I am a year older. Just some passing thoughts on a chilly November day.

  1. Ordinary days full of little pleasures are spectacular in their own silent way. I mean, it is the sustainable kind of happiness we can build our lives around. Nothing wrong with a little bit of ordinary. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    I didn't know pumpkin pie ice cream was a thing until I saw it in the store last week and I knew I had to get some. It's basically pumpkin ice cream with graham cracker in it. It's all kinds of wonderful.
