Notes from the Universe I signed up for this a few days ago & I totally LOVE IT. They are so uplifting & awesome...and so much better than a daily horoscope, in my opinion. Here's a few I've gotten...
You don't have to take everything so seriously, Rachel. Reality isn't black and white, answers don't have to be yes or no, and absolutely nothing has to happen today. Act when you're ready. Be led by your feelings. And the next time someone wants to fit you into a mold, just tell 'em that your jeans are in the wash, your angel's at the mall, and Oprah's on the other line.
Fuzzy as dice -
I understand you,
I can imagine that from your perspective, it must seem like some truly awful things happen in time and space. So if you wouldn't mind, I'd like to weigh in.
Rachel, you live in a world of illusions. A world that springs from a much deeper and far greater reality. And while at times the illusions are indeed ugly, with your physical senses you only see the tip of the iceberg. If you could see the whole, you'd discover that the unpleasantness was only the tiniest piece of a most spectacular puzzle that was created with order, intelligence, and absolute love. You'd see that contrary to appearances, in the grandest scheme of things, nothing is ever lost, no one becomes less, and setbacks are always temporary. And you'd understand that no matter what has happened, everyone lives again, everyone laughs again, and everyone loves again, even more richly than before.
Hubba, hubba -
Rachel, nothing is ever lost. Not time; for what seems to have passed, lives on in the wisdom of future decisions. Not money; for what seems to have been spent, was only invested. And not love; for what seems to have vanished, has only moved so close you must look within your heart to see it.
Here and now, Rachel, whether or not it's obvious, you are the best you've ever been.
How awesome is that?? I seriously love them & think everyone should sign up, I don't care if I sound like a stupid new-age hippie.

Been rocking out to em pretty hard lately..it's good music to listen to if you're sleepy & driving! For me at least! And I may have a small girl crush on Manda Rin...
My Mu'fuckin Vacation!! So I've talked about my two whole weeks off from school in past posts. Well, I've also managed to swing an entire week off from work!! Oh my god, I'm so excited. I've needed this so badly. I go to school every day from 8-2 & then I'm at work from 4-9 (now 8 because we're slowing down). I've done this for almost a SOLID YEAR. I miss my husband, I miss my friends, I miss my bed, I miss sleep, I miss crafting. I will get caught up on all of those things in the next 2 weeks! Even Will has a week off from work with me! EEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Breakin Monotony in tiny ways If you do the same shit every day, day in & day out, your mind grows dull. You do the same repetitive shit over and over, it's bound to happen. Did you know that you can sharpen your brain just by doing things slightly differently? I'll take as many different ways to school & work as much as I can, I'll do step B first instead of step A for a change...little stuff like that actually DOES make a difference. I used to do stuff like that when I was a kid, I learned how to write with my left hand, I would count money going from small change to big change or vise versa. Not that I knew what I was doing, I was just kind of a weird kid that liked to do things differently from time to time. I WAS AMBIDEXTROUS ONCE.
Ok Brook, yeah, I'm weird :)
