Warm socks and a cup of coffee.

Three-day weekends are so much better than two.

It's amazing how much more I can do when I have one extra day to stay home (Martin Luthor King, Jr. Day is Monday!).  I can take that precious time to edit pictures, memorize my lines for theatre, and even catch up on some (unnecessary) homework.  I may actually decide to be productive before Tuesday rolls around.  And, bonus:  I made myself wake up early on Saturday morning to visit one of my least favorite places, the gym.  I really hate exercising.  Isn't that terrible?  I'm just always so busy or tired to work out during the weekdays, and my excuse during the weekends is that I deserve to relax.  Lame, right?  But I forced myself this time to stop being lazy, and I'm very glad that I did.  Especially since last night was my best friend's 18th birthday celebration, and a group of us went to a very nice restaurant (with very sinful indulgences).  I ordered a pasta dish, and yes, I ate the whole thing.  It was fantastic.

Right now, I'm sitting upstairs in my pajamas as I type this, and contemplating what to do next.  I could do my homework, but that's what tomorrow is for.  Hmm...maybe I will continue reading The Shack?  Watch an episode of Gilmore Girls?  Edit the photographs from last night?  So many choices.  This freedom is beautiful.

Thank you, Mr. King.

Oh!  I almost forgot!  I saw The Lovely Bones on Friday, just like I said I would.  And let me tell you, it was brilliant.  The movie definitely did the book justice, and that is pretty rare.  I loved it so much that I can't wait to see it again!  If you've seen it, I'd love to know your opinion...  Apparently, the critics didn't think it was so great.  But what do they know?
