so, yesterday i had to drive to the university to pick up sean from class at 930pm…and it was snowing/raining (sleeting?) which caused me a lot of stress. one thing that i do while driving in stressful situations (besides white-knuckling the steering wheel) is sing super loud (read: off-key) and try to do so as calmly as possible…that means i try not to allow myself the hear the panic in my voice. usually if it is just an icy-wet mess, i can handle this just fine and it actually proves to be a nice stress reducer, especially when the tunes are from our endless numbered days…mmm, swoon… however, when db’s (douche bags…i know, nice language there…) in giant trucks pass me/cut me off, being sure to splash copious amounts of road slush onto my windshield causing me to screech-sing from the shock of momentary-semi-blindness, at speeds that would get them pulled over in dry conditions, my singing becomes a bit more erratic and my knuckles a bit more white…so, i guess my point is this: just because you (not necessarily you, but those that will probably never-ever-ever read this…) own a big giant truck or similar vehicle, does not mean that you should drive like a maniac on the trecherous roads. it’s not safe for you or for me and quite frankly i think that it is stupid. the end.
aaaanyway…i am doing a very special blog post sunday…and these are just a small part of that. i am still working on my macaron making skills-tweaking and combining different recipes/methods. so worth the effort, don’t you think? i’m also trying to work on the photography skillzzzz as well…it seems the class i took in college hasn’t really stuck with me. boo to that.
