Pessimist's Drinkware

So I know my blog posts have been pretty lame the past month or two. But it isn't my fault. Life is amazing down here in Virginia, but either things aren't exciting enough to blog about....or they are too exciting and crazy and probably shouldn't be shared publicly.

But overall life is good. Life is really good! Kyle and Jess had their baby, and he is absolutely beautiful. I love my schedule and the time I have to do other things and relax. I love that I can walk outside in shorts and a tshirt and enjoy the amazing view and weather!

The other day I was having a conversation with a friend. He commented on how he loved how positive I was. And I started thinking. (Apparently, I have been doing quite a bit of that lately). I used to think of myself as a pretty positive and optimistic person. But I always hated that question, "Is the glass half empty or half full?"
This is a common expression, used rhetorically to indicate whether a person is more of an optimist or a pessimist. I always said the glass was half empty...because it is! It is half empty! But I always wondered if that meant that I was really a pessimistic and cynical person.

Then I found this! This glass is half full!

See! So I am not a cynical person...I prefer to think of myself as more realistic.

And a side note...I hadn't locked my keys in my car for the past 5 years! Now I've locked them in my car 3 times in the past 3 months. Gah I am brilliant!

Oh To Be Me...

You know the elephant in the room. Yes, that giant one over there. Isn't it funny how 2 people can be looking at the same thing, and one sees an itty bitty mouse where the other sees a mammal monstrosity. Just to clarify, it really is/was an honest to goodness mammal monstrosity. Not even exaggerating a little bit.

My life should be a movie. Call me for details....!
