If I could turn back time…

 

I wouldn’t change much. Maybe skip eating all of those helpings of pasta and spending my money as soon as I had it.

I feel pretty confident in the life I’ve made so far. I have a car, a job, friends who are there for me, family, and I’m getting a college education. I don’t to turn back time I just need to learn what to do with what I have left.

I waste time more than I should. I surf the web not knowing what I’m looking for, sure that’s the reason most of the time, and that causes me to slack off in things I should be doing, like studying or reading, or sleeping.

Time is precious and I think I’m just starting to realize that which is sad. 20 years down the drain and I’m not sure if I ever appreciated time as much as I do now.

Live for the moment sure, but don’t live for your moment of Twitter feuds and Facebook drama. Live for the moment of today, breathing, looking at the sky and how wonderful it is. Take into consideration of someone else’s day and how you can make an impact on them.

A goal of mine for 2016 is to be more volunteering. I love people, I love helping them, working with them. I’m going to have at least 100 hours of service to end this year.

Don’t think about turning back time, think about how you can make the rest of yours more meaningful.

Aspen Coffee Stillwater

Review on the downtown Aspen Coffee in Stillwater, OK.

So Aspen is a cute little coffee shop (chain) in downtown Stillwater. I really enjoyed the atmosphere, they had knickknacks, large jars of coffee beans on display (you ask them at the counter for a 1/2lb (or however much you want) bag of it and they take the giant jar and measure it for you to take home and enjoy). It was a wonderful place to study. They didn’t have a bathroom which sucked when I spilled Jacob’s (the man in the picture) coffee all over the table and his notebook. He had to go behind the counter and wash his hands.

So yeah. That happened. I knocked it over when I was trying to touch his arm to tell him that everything was okay, obviously it wasn’t when I almost ruined his phone… Thank God for Bookbook, right?

After the catastrophe we settled back down and did homework and studied. I got a lot done, more so than if I were in my dorm, because if I were there I would be bingeing Arrow.

Anyway: Aspen Coffee Downtown was fantastic and I am currently texting Jacob about how we want to make it a regular study place.

If you’re in the neighborhood we’ll be at the high table in the corner. 😉
