Home, Sweet Home!

Summer is a great time to take trips, see family, and visit friends. Usually when you do one of those things, or travel anywhere for a long period of time, you'll most likely be sleeping in a bed that isn't yours. This might be nice at first. Honestly, I think beds in nice hotels are awesome. But nothing compares to your own bed, in your own house.

Sometimes though, a bed at a friends house can feel like this one here.

Oh ho ho but when you get back home...

Can't Stop. Won't Stop.

If you are a reader like me, then you have experienced a point in a book where you just cannot stop reading. Usually when I start getting tired of reading, I'll go to the end of the chapter and then close the book. However, there are those times when you are reading, where suddenly you get to the climax of the book, or some large event is about to happen and you just have to keep reading to find out what it is. Currently I am reading the 3rd book in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series, and in the past two books, that feeling happened quite a few times. 

It's especially nice when you can read outside

I've stayed up for hours on end reading, just because the book is so interesting. Plot twists suddenly hit you like a ton of bricks, but you love it. You're using most of your mental capacity to stop yourself from having to use the bathroom and you're practically skimming through the text because you are so excited.

By the way, if there is a book that is also out as a movie, read the book first, I promise you will enjoy it much more than the movie. Books let your imagination do most of the work, and for me, it's incredible.

On the other hand...

A while back I posted on here about having your feet in the sand and how nice it can feel. However, just yesterday I was reminded that walking through really soft grass gives a totally different, but equally nice sensation. I was out at the park yesterday, and it was a little hot outside but the grass was really cool and soft. 'Twas good stuff.

Soft as a baby'

So when you are walking through a field next time, take your shoes off. Take it easy and enjoy the grass. Just make sure there are no pokey plants in it.
Those'll ruin your day.

Would you like cream with your coffee?

Many people drink a cup of coffee as part of their morning routine. I am one of those people and I think that coffee can be quite...fascinating. "But, Gabe, what could possibly be so cool about coffee?" Well, pour a little bit of creamer in your cup o' joe and you'll soon find out. 

Pretty sweet huh?
No pun intended...

I also found a similar effect with a chrome paint used for painting aluminum. As i poured it and let it sit, it would settle and make these stellar looking shapes, and if you mixed it around, it would create a smooth looking liquid. It was neat to look at.

Anyway, off topic!
Coffee creamer makes your coffee not only taste awesome, but it makes it look awesome as well.
So drink up!

That "New Clothes" Feel

Whether you are a guy or girl, you have to love getting new clothes. I know the stereotype for shopping and all that is mainly towards girls, but I love getting new things to wear. The next day after you buy them, you'll be wearing them, and you'll feel like a badass. Wearing new outfits and such is a big moral booster. Might even make you feel like this guy here 

So Fly

Most likely, depending on what you wear, you'll get at least a few compliments on your new attire. People definitely notice when you change up your routine, and yes that does include what you wear. Shocking, I know.

So every now and then, go out and buy something that you like to wear.
Wear it.
Feel Awesome.

Darn You Eyelashes!

Imagine this. You jump into bed and are getting comfortable, but what's this? You suddenly feel something in your eye! Damn! You rub it and try to remove whatever it is that is invading your eyeball. After a while you try and just deal with it, close your eyes and fall asleep. But of course, it is not that simple, that small object in your eye is at the moment, the bane of your existence. You keep rubbing your eyes until they are all watery and raw (which is a terrible feeling by the way). 

This is you.

After painstakingly long minutes of frustration, with one last swipe of your fingers over your eye, one last attempt at getting the blasted thing from your eye, you are successful! Imagine that. You look on your finger to see what the heck caused you so much pain, and there you see a small black hair, an eyelash. I thought they were there to protect your eyes from debris! What gives?!

Anyways, finally getting that eyelash out of your eye is quite relieving. Especially if you wear contacts.

Good day!

Fresh Snow

It doesn't happen often here in Texas, but when it snows, it's one of the most beautiful things I have seen. Last year I woke up early after the first day it snowed because we had the day off from school (people make fun of us for cancelling school due to a few inches of snow). I was walking to my friends house to go play in the snow with her and the streets and sidewalks had not yet been traveled that morning. So while everyone was sleeping in, or sipping hot coffee in their houses, I was out crunching through the snow. The sound of a quiet morning plus the sounds of snow crunching under your feet is phenomenal. It was the first time that I had been able to do that. Making tracks all the way from my house to her house uninterrupted. 

Kind of makes you just want to jump right in!

So on the next snow day you have, which might be at the end of this year, wake up early one morning and just take a walk through the snow. But make sure to bundle up as well, wouldn't want you to catch a cold!
