"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

02 March 2010

happy tuesday.

Reasons why today, the 2nd of March, the year of our Lord, 2010 is a good day:

:: it feels like springtime outside
:: I got an A+
(twenty-two out of twenty possible points) on a test for my postmodern class, where my professor thanked me for "going the distance".
:: i used a gift card for lunch
:: my postmodern professor loves me
:: the book eats, shoots and leaves is amazing. read it.
:: this is a comment on the essay i got back today from my postmodern class:
"Wow, Alyssa. Someone is ready for graduate school. A very rare, nice treatment [of the essay]".
(i got an A).

Good for you! I wish it felt like springtime here. I think the weather got mixed up. You guys are supposed to have snow in March, not us.
