______These were taken the day before our last day of Warm-Winter. And now, the temperatures are where they should be considering the time of year: cool 40s and 30s, with those winds that smack you like a cold fish to the face and keep you chilled for the rest of the day.
______Chilly is how I usually am, though, because I'm always cold and wearing a massive, fluffy robe around the house in addition to multiple layers of socks. It's an impressive sight. I am a big weenie. I am quit possibly the biggest weenie. Just call me Weenie Lord Ali, Lord of the Weenies.
______But not those kind of weenies. I don't wanna be lord of those.
______I never really make many resolutions for New Years'. Or at least, the ones I have aren't something I ever write down unless I feel some kind of desperate need to really change myself. But I'm pretty satisfied with things right now and just want to keep pushing in the current direction that I've been. In the past week, I've finally submitted all my graduate school applications, and hope to figure out where I want to go with that, as well as being as happy as I possibly can with myself and any accomplishments I may have this year.
______I do know that one thing I want to do is cook more for myself and try a lot more new recipes: I save so many in my tabs but still tend to stick to the same meals. Variety needs to be the spice of life! Especially ones with wild rice, soups, and more vegan/vegetarian meals. Mmmm.
______I hope you all had a wonderful and fulfilling New Years' (and holiday season in general); seeing all the decorations and twinkling lights of Christmas disappear over the next few weeks is a little sad, but I guess it's more special if it comes only once a year.
