This morning, I went to church with my friend Amanda and her parents. I haven't been to church in a very, very long, so it was good. Without getting into too much detail and beginning a whole theological outburst, I didn't stop going to church because I didn't like it or because I had anything against it. Honestly (and sadly), I stopped because life got hectic. Sundays became days for sleeping in a bit, doing homework, going to baby showers, running a million errands, etc. I liked going to church today - it brought back so many memories of going when I was younger. I do like going because I feel like it really challenges me mentally. It makes me think about things I don't think about on a regular basis, but probably should. I was slightly bummed this morning because I didn't know any of the songs, but oh well! Maybe next time.
After church, Amanda & I wandered Coquitlam Center for a bit. I've been really into buying some new clothing to wear to work, and H&M has done wonders for that! I didn't realize how different it would be wearing whatever I wanted to work, after wearing a red YMCA polo shirt with black pants every, single, freaking day for ten years. I didn't mind the uniform at the time, but now that I DON'T have a uniform, it's very freeing! I bought a long skirt today that I am super excited to wear. Not sure what I will wear it with yet....but I'm excited nonetheless! Plus, it's so, so comfy.
Guess what is happening this Thursday - my convocation!! Yay!! I am super disappointed that my friend Harj won't be there, as somehow she didn't get on the list of attendees for the ceremony, even though she applied. I don't totally know what happened but her & I were school buddies for SO long that it will be weird not having her there. But a bunch of other friends from school will be there so it will be fun. I already have my actual piece of paper degree, so this is just the formal ceremony for it. Don't you worry, there will be photographic evidence to follow!
This song came into my head today for some reason. I loved them! And this song too. Oh and you HAVE to listen to this new song. It makes me want to get up and dance.
Here is to a new week - happy Monday everyone!
