...Happiness, yes, Tom was certainly right about that.

  • My Favorite Words.

    'The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still' -Exodus 14:14

    "You've got to know your limitations. I found out what mine were when I was twelve. I found out that there weren't too many limitations, if I did it my way." - Johnny Cash

    "Courage is the ladder that all virtues are mounted on." - Mr. R. Crosby Kemper, Jr.

    "It's your choice, Ace. People can live a hundred years without really living for a minute. You climb up here with me, it's one less minuteyou haven't lived." - Gilmore Girls

    "Faith, it does not make things easy, it makes them possible" - Luke 1:37

    "I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the lights that I have." -Abraham Lincoln

    "Writing is a struggle against silence." - Carlos Fuentes

    "At the end of the day faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don't really expect it. It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than you dreamed. The castle, well, it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important happy ever after, just that its happy right now. See once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you, and once in a while people may even take your breath away." - Grey's Anatomy

    "Imperfection is beauty. Madness is genius. And it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. And when it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, then I'm already better than them." - Marilyn Monroe

    “It’s not that I believe everything happens for a reason. Some things are meant to be broken. Imperfect. Chaotic. It’s the universe’s way of providing contrast. There have to be a few holes in the road. It’s how life is." – Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

    "Opportunity knocks; that doesn't mean you have to knock the door off the hinges." - Sam Herringshaw

    "Grace doesn’t depend on suffering to exist, but where there is suffering you will find grace in many facets and colors." – William P. Young, The Shack

    ‎"You're only given a little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it." - Robin Williams

    "I think I'd miss you even if I'd never met you."-The Wedding Date

    "If you don't even believe in the possibility of magic, you'll never ever find it." - Castle

So There’s That: Vol. 2

{Sort of like  a “Friday Five” except it’s probably not Friday and I gave up on the idea of a catchy alliteration. This is my# postgradlife.}

1. Blog Makeover

As you can see I did a little bit of a makeover on the blog this weekend. There is still one more section that is being finished. Be looking for that addition next week. What do you think about the new digs? What are some blog must-haves, and what do you like about other blogs that make them unique?

At our graduation party.

2. Leah is getting herself hitched!

One of my best friends announced her engagement this weekend. After knowing about it for the past two weeks, it was about all I could do to not freely jump for joy. Leah was my roommate in Smurthwaite Scholarship House my freshman year at K-State. She was the hippie and I was the country girl. But we bonded over our curly red hair, soft spots for a cheesy love song, love for flowers and plants, eating pickles and peanut butter, and adventuring through the many trials and memories of college together. She is one of the kindest, loving and humble girls that I know and I am over the moon that she has found someone to love her like she deserves. And I am honored to be standing up with her and Ryan next year when they say I do!

3. Professional reading
I read some interesting thoughts over the top five personality traits that employers look for on AgCareers.com, which is a wonderful resource for new grads, seasoned employees and employers alike. I had the opportunity to write them a two years ago and made it a habit to see what they have to say on a regular basis.

This past week I read: Employers look for executive personality traits before hiring.

With a pretty comprehensive description for each trait I can personally identify which traits that I do well emulating and which ones that I need to work on. What do you think of their list? How do you work toward polishing these traits? Or, is there a more valuable personality trait you would rather see on the list?

4. My Fourth of July

My favorite holiday was a success! I got my starry night extravagant fireworks show that I always look forward to and earlier in the evening I added to my jams for the week at the Manhattan Municipal Band Independence Day concert that my roommate Kyla played in. Though the fireworks are always my favorite, the Armed Services Salute was played at the band concert, inviting servicemen and women to stand up when they heard their tune, stole the show. The college aged kid who helped his grandpa stand up out of his wheelchair put a smile on my face for the rest of the day.

5. Big Kid Business
Whelp, I guess that I am now really, really official now. My business cards came in today! AND since everyone in the office was about ready to reorder, I got to redesign them. Whatcha think? The back features a new project that we are working on that will launch at the end of July. Excuse me, while I do a little happy dance.


Yah, So There’s That.
