I've been a little (ok, you caught me, a lot) MIA (missing in action) I suppose for a lot of reasons. For one, I'm moving, which takes up a lot more mental space than I care to admit and certainly makes for an easy distraction route when looking to do anything besides homework. Then there's that thing called exercise which is really quite annoying but I have been doing a lot of it lately (something about stress relief) but then I realize that this too takes up a lot of time and I once again get stressed. Then there's that whole thing about secretly being 4 years old and really confused about what I'm doing in life...But today, I felt compelled to write. Wanna know why? Because it's above freezing.
Yep, that's right people. You're reading the text of a new-born woman, one who is no longer pessimistic, angry, frustrated, or blue because Spring, I believe, is on its way. And you know what?

I work hard, I swear.
Ok, and here's something that makes me feel the exact opposite of love, Gwyneth Paltrow, singing a song that I do love:
