I’ve gotten pretty used to telling the baristas that one lately. Seriously – this pales in comparison to the PSL. You don’t even need any fancy creamer. Anyway, I think this whole “coffee date” post is pretty cool and I’ll be able to cover all my bases as far as where I’ve been.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I’m sorry for being
a little a lot absent lately. I’m not going to use the whole cliche, “life happens” thing because…well, duh, life happens every day and people still blog. I wasn’t feeling motivated and that’s the honest truth. Sometimes when I’m at school, I question why I blog and I feel like my life is just not that interesting when it consists of studying, classes, running, and sorority/social stuff.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I’ve had a pretty rough past couple days. I’d really prefer to be transparent on here, so here goes. My 20-year-old cousin passed away suddenly last Wednesday and it hit me pretty hard. We grew up together, and it’s something I’ve been having a lot of trouble comprehending. I will say that there is nothing like death to bring a family together and remind you what’s important. Rewind back to point number one…maybe that’s why I’ve been finding my daily activities so trivial?
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that it kills me that I missed so many things while I was gone. Call me selfish, but I was supposed to run a half marathon. Big bummer. Call me a nerd, but I missed two days of classes. Call me whatever you want, but I actually had no desire to go home and leave school. Actually, I couldn’t wait to get back. Yes, I can make up the work. Yes, I will run other races. Yes, there are other things more important than getting straight A’s and running races every weekend.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I’m more than ready for fall to be here. Scarves, jeans, and boots are kind of my thing.
If we were having coffee, I would remind you to update your iPhone software. I did yesterday, and it’s fantastic.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that getting packages in the mail is the best thing ever.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you those last two are a part of a recent goal for myself (although it should be an obvious one): always seek the good in the worst situations.
If we were having coffee, I would probably kick myself for being so darn depressing today. I swear I’m actually quite chipper in real life. Only after coffee.
What would you tell me if we were on a coffee date?
