First Blog: 'Bout Time

Hello! I'm...obviously, new.
The sole purpose of this blog is to talk about day to day celebrations. Either it be a job promotion or getting the house cleaned.
Today's victory: Be Nice! (even if you have to fake it)
This is a project I had to do at school that I already (unknowingly) implemented in my life. Which is interesting being in that culture how it just kind of... rubbed off on me. There is a girl at school, that at first, I had nothing to do with. I didn't want to get to know her.  I didn't like her lifestyle. I hated the way she dressed. I decided to just be nice to her. Maybe she will leave me alone. I was very wrong. Now, she is one of my nicest friends. I am so glad that being nice actually opened me up to understand another person better versus shutting myself off from opportunities.
I don't wake up everyday with a smile on my face, but I make sure I put one on before I walk in the door at work or school. I need to try and put it on before I walk out of my bedroom.

For the record, I highly recommend the "Be Nice (Or Else!)" book by Winn Claybaugh. Highly inspirational, very motivational. I've already read it three times.

Secondly, I started this so I could follow Hyperbole and A Half. That is all.

You are all beautiful, awesome, and loved
