First things first: HAPPY SAINT PATRICKS DAY!!
Or, in Irish, Naomh Sasta La Padraig!
I have a crazy love for this holiday.
Maybe it's because I actually am Irish, I dunno, but I love it! So I'm all decked out in green today :) And if you aren't, I am virtually pinching you :)
It's that time of the week where I get to tell you my most awkward moments, and also my most awesome moments.
Here we go!
i. Meeting one of your dads clients who is from India, and he starts asking you questions about homeschooling.
"Why you no go to public school? Your dad not trust you?"
"After you graduate you go to college?"
and the best one:
"So when you get older and want to get married, do you have to marry a homeschooler? I know the Amish do that... Are you Amish??"
HE LITERALLY TALKED LIKE I WAS IN SOME SORT OF CULT I WAS LAUGHING SO HARD.
ii. This goes with #1 but getting asked if you're Amish or any religion in general. This actually happens all the time.
LIKE DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT AMISH PEOPLE LOOK LIKE?!?!?! OBVIOUSLY NOT.
"Are you Pentecostal?"
"Apostolic? You've got to be Apostolic."
"No, I'm not Apostolic either,"
"THEN WHAT ARE YOU?!?!?!?!?!"
"I'm just a Christian..."
"Yeah, but like, what denomination are you?"
*insert straight face emoji here*
iii. Not hearing someone after the third time and you finally just shake your head and say, "Yeah." and just pray to God that it was a yes or no question. This happens to everybody, but it's such a major struggle guys.
iv. Going to Steak and Shake after Sunday night service and finding about 25 members of the church that you're visiting there too, then them inviting you to sit with them, then awkwardly agreeing, and then half-way through your meal realizing for the first time that because your cousin married a girl from that church that you are related to the majority of the people at the table.
v. Reliving your most awkward situations that have ever happened in your life at any moment in the day. Ugh, I hate this. *the shame*
vi. When you come out of a store with more pairs of sunglasses at one time than you've owned in your entire life.
THEY WERE ROUND AND RETRO. I COULDN'T HELP IT.
vii. Going through roughly six packs of saltine crackers for my soup because every.single.one. I opened, they were stale. *straight-faced emoji*
i. When you find out the day after you bought your sunglasses (#6 above), one of them is a sold-out pair of Quay's. I'm not even kidding these are $50 dollar sunglasses and I paid $1. What.The.Even. So yeah, I
now wear the same sunnies as Vanessa Hudgens so...... I laughed for a good 30 minutes over this.
ii. My fingertips being so sore from playing ukulele all day that it kinda pained me to play my stringed instruments. Pain is never awesome, but it makes me strangely happy to look down and see my sore, calloused fingertips. It's proof that I can see of accomplishment and creativity. Is that weird..? Probably. I'm okay with that. :)
iii. The sunset being your favorite shade of blue. I oftentimes cry looking at sunsets. The beauty is too much for my heart to handle, and I love it!
iv. Finding brownies (that you honestly forgot you made) in the oven and they taste better than they did fresh.
v. Finally making a good, not watered down, nor too sweet cup of iced coffee.
vi. My unicorn mug. Yes. Yes. Yes.
vii. Perfect spring days.
viii. Finding a new brand of a black pen I love.
ix. Mid-day. Usually my mom lies down with Shalom at this time and it's quiet and I get blog things done :)
x. When your mom makes a banana and Nutella wrap and she says: "Hey, do you want this? I only wanted one-half." UM YEAH, SURE I GUESS I CAN TAKE THAT BEAUTY OFF YOUR HANDS.
xi. My Instax Mini 8. 'Nough said.
