thank you! thank you! thursday (day 51)

 

Today I am thankful for...

the air conditioning in my office building, which makes it hard to type with frozen fingers, but keeps me cool as I walk out to my scorching car.


avacados. They're amazing and I love spreading them on things like whole wheat pita chips and crackers.




my english class for assigning a lot of great short stories and poems that really get the wheels in my head turning.


the heat of summer for giving me a great excuse not to wear makeup (and therefore spend less time getting ready in the morning)... it'll just melt anyway, right? 




Miranda who inspired me by recently chopping off all her processed hair so she could start fresh and be nice to her hair. I probably won't stop dying my hair, but I haven't been dying it as often. And I haven't been blow drying it or using my flat iron.

only having 3 more weeks of class as of Sunday... I think I can make it!


water with cucumbers. oh so refreshing!




And last, but definitely not least.... Thank you to the amazing people of Sustainable OKC who took the time to read my essay and select me as 1 of 8 people to receive a scholarship which pays for 1/2 of the tuition!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So I will be attending the Permaculture Design course one weekend August-November and receiving a certificate once I finish. $400 is still a bit of a stretch but I $800 would have been out of the question, so because of this scholarship I get to pursue something that will be incredibly beneficial to me personally and professionally. I am so incredibly thankful for this exciting opportunity! I can't stop jumping up and down :)

Day 51 - A picture of your dream car.

I've wanted a VW Bus for as long as I can remember. I once met a guy outside a 7-11 who had one (painted with peace signs and flowers!) and he let me see the inside, which he had recently updated. This one is slightly smaller, but it's electric :)

  5. That's so awesome you got the scholarship! Yay! I'm looking forward to hearing what you learn about! If you're interested in scholarships for college, you should really check into collegenet.com My daughter won a $5,000 scholarship on that website two years in a row. Back then, it was monthly scholarship contests, but I think now they have weekly contests.

    You don't need no steenkin' make-up!
