Day 126: I like to talk.
Feeling a bit under the weather last night, I decided to stay home today and quell the possibility of a cold. I rolled out of bed at an allowing hour and sniffed through Sonnet 126.
Then, it was time for TV! I started with my favorite show (Tom & Jerry) before exploring Woojin's favorite (Arrested Development).
When I wrote to my BFF to brag about the broadening of my television horizons, he encouraged me to shift gears and explore a live stream of the conference he is currently attending -- Passion 2012.
45,000 college-age teenagers are gathered in the Georgia Dome to explore themselves through their common faith. Woojin is having an amazing time, and, watching the videos, I can feel the energy 643 miles away.
Later in the afternoon, I attempted to teach myself one of my favorite songs on the piano. Slowly and steadily, I'll get it! (Maybe.)
After a nap, Mama took me to the doctor. I just returned home, and am feeling much better. I set a pot of yummy Basmati rice to cook, and can't wait to enjoy it for dinner!
Quotation of the day: "To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
