It's Ok Thursday.

Its Ok Thursdays



It's ok...



...to be really excited for pedicures tonight.



...to be sure that the ladies at the pedi shop are talking about me when they speak in other languages. Fine, my feet are awful - say your worst.



...to be getting pedi's and eating sushi tonight instead of preparing for my trip, la di da.



...to be unable to leave a dirty or messy house because you'll spend the whole trip thinking about coming back to it.



...to want to be away, with your best friend, pretending everything hard in your life doesn't exist.



...to be glad you have another trip next weekend, so you won't cry as hard when this one ends.



...to care more about which books you're going to pack then what you're wearing.



...to think it's really odd you quit dying your hair in December and it's been growing out the same color you use to dye it. I feel like that's probably unhealthy in some way.



...to refuse to spend more than 20 bucks on a haircut.



...to feel really good about yourself every time you update your progress on Goodreads.



...to hate laundry, the dentist, and getting other people's pet's hair on you. (random list, I know but this is MY it's ok Thursday and I'll do what I want!)



...to fail. Sometimes we all fail at this, that or the other thing and that's ok.



...to forgive without being able to forget. Forgiving is sometimes a process and a series of choices to continue to let go.



...to crave change. Sometimes we all just want a change of pace.



...to take medicine when you need it. It doesn't make you weak. (this is really just for me because I'm a freak).



...to buy yourself fresh flowers from time to time.



...to want a maxi dress even though you're too short to look good in one.



...to wish you didn't have a big head because then you could look cute in a fedora. I'm wearing one anyway in Haiti. Watch out!



...to call your (male) neighbor to break into your house because you're worried your straightner is on.



...to be misunderstood.



...to care what other people think (we all do).



...to feel honored when people tell you, you look like your parents - my parents are good lookin folks!



...to miss your family every day but be thankful for a life you love, far away.



...to need therapy and a support group to survive the departure of your best friend to another state (tear).



Love, B

I still maintain that you'd look good in a fedora if it wasn't so high up on your head lol

I have to clean my house before I leave too...I'm so glad that I'm not the only one!

Oh my gosh, I get asked if I have DROPPED things on my feet, to which I reply, "I'm a runner." Ugh.

And I love this post. I often feel misunderstood too! :)

Sorry about your friend... but it'll make things that much more fun when you visit!

Pedis definitely count as trip prep!! Gotta have pretty feet if they're going be showing. Have fun!

I feel like they are talking about me too!!

I always clean a super lot bfore I go on vacay. Fortunately for me I work at a Salon now..so a usual $40 hair cut is nothing for me!

Katy said...

I rock the maxi dress even though I'm too short as well. I say, wear what you want!

Nichole said...

Haha, I always get paranoid the ladies at nail places are talking about me too. Have an awesome, awesome trip!

And it's okay to drown your sorrows in a vat of fro yo. :) I also love maxi dresses but know they're really not meant for my body type. I also have a tip on a great pedicure deal, if you're interested!
