Things that have made me happy in the past week:
*vespa rides with patrick
*modern day medicine
*convos with my little brother that go something like this:
(While attempting to massage the muscle spasms in my neck and back)
A: Ouch! That's my bone!
L: Oh sorry! I thought it was the nugget!
A: The nugget?! Do you mean the knot?
L: Oh yeah, the knot...
(A few moments later)
L: Sorry, I keep telling myself to stay between your spine and razor blade but I keep getting distracted!
A: My razor blade?! You mean my shoulder blade?
L: Oh yeah...
A: That's okay Logan, I think I'm good on the massage...
And life is good.

apparently my blog called and it misses me...
i'm attempting to recommit to blogging because i used to love it. and lots has happened between my last post and now.
and on this episode of
"alana goes back to treatment..."
i took a little break from life itself. it was much needed. during that time i have discovered that:
-people like you more when you're not striving for perfection
-my apartment is next to the party pool
-change is hard
-people don't judge as much as i think they do
-the right thing is often the simple thing, but that certainly doesn't make it the easy thing
-i don't believe in AA's philosophy
-i do believe in the 12 steps
-it's okay to spend a seemingly ridiculous time staring at a cupboard full of food while sitting on my kitchen floor as long as i choose to eat something in the end
-i respond to tough love because it means someone cares enough about me to merit the energy of getting mad
-i'm hooked on grey's anatomy
-megavideo only allows 72 minutes of video watching at a time
-i love green apples and creamy peanut butter
-as tough as wanting something is, the people who suffer most are the ones who don't know what they want.
i called it like it was. and it sucked. but i'm better for it. so if you think i'm broken, then fix me. cuz i'm no quitter.
and i think we can do anything we want to if we stick to it long enough.
