90's Kid

You know those weird moments where you see something that you haven't seen in YEARS and everything just comes rushing back?
And you didn't even remember that you had forgotten it, it had literally just been so long that it been erased from your memory... or so you thought?

That happened to me yesterday night.

I was just scrolling down tumblr, perfectly content, when I saw this gif:

I stared at it a couple of minutes, just thinking, "WHY IS THIS SO FAMILIAR?"
Why do I even know what this is, and why do I remember wanting so badly to be able to do it??

Thank heavens for the ease of the internet; I found out straightaway that it came from The Big Comfy Couch, a TV show that apparently I watched when I was younger.

And then it all came back.
The dust bunnies, Molly's clock stretch, her story time...

Somehow this picture (that should be rather frightening) was comforting.

I guess I'm a true 90's kid.

Do you remember this?! What have you forgotten from your childhood?

Maybe It's Just Me...

But does anyone else's hair have a mind of its own?

Because really, how does hair escape like this?

I'm not a bad braider or anything.
My hair isn't horribly layered.
I don't constantly touch it.

I think it just likes being free.

Oh, well.

(Note: This was taken at home. I'm back at school as of yesterday.)

Better Than Snuggies.

While I was still recovering from my wisdom teeth extraction, Karina and Darian, my favorite brother and sister duo, came over to visit me in my hour of need!
(Even though it was really just more of a hang out session... Like I said before, my mouth didn't hurt that bad.)

We kept ourselves busy by powering through The Office season 5 in our just-bought footsie pajamas.
Seriously, though.
I could lounge around in those things for days.

Because Darian wanted no part in our fuzzy-snuggling madness, he offered to play photographer... often from very strange positions (like the one pictured).
His choice of attire leaned more toward the glow-in-the-dark biker outfit than the footsie-pajamas.

And, because we were so happy to show these babies off-

- the footsies in their full glory.
The best part? We found them at Target in the kid's section for $10.
Not bad for cupcakes (Karina's, from the girl's) and spaceships (Mine, from the boy's)!

All in all, a pretty good use of our time.

Say Good-bye to Wisdom!

So yesterday I got my last two wisdom teeth taken out.
The upper two are the less painful ones, according to my dentist/doctor/teeth-extractor, and seeing as I didn't have any problems with my bottom two I had high hopes for these!

My mom took a rather frightening picture of me while I was still sedated, puffy cheeks and all.
Not gonna lie- it kinda looks like a black-mail picture, so I guess I should show it to the world before it can be used against me.

I have never been a fan of the oxygen tubes.
I mean, I get that they're essential, but they tickle to the point where my eyes water because they're so uncomfortable.
They also just look scary.

I was also lucky enough to have veins that didn't want to cooperate, so for the first time ever, I had my general anesthesia given to me through the back of my hand.
I didn't even know that they did that.

After I slept for about 3 hours and wore off the last of the drugs, I was up and ready to go!
Technically, I was told to take it easy and sit around for most of the day, but three hours was enough rest for me.
So I called up Lena!

Lena was babysitting the most adorable girl, Sophia, so the two of them came over to visit me.
We colored.
A lot.

It was the perfect distraction!
I had met Sophia before and we had become fast friends, so I was glad she was so comfortable around me in the short time they visited.

Sophia was really into drawing families, so we drew mommy, daddy, and baby strawberries, carrots, mermaids (a TON of them), and snowmen!

And the most perfect surprise came when we were putting on Sophia's shoes to go home....

The coolest sunset-cloud ever!
What a beautiful end to the day.

I guess my experiences with wisdom teeth extraction haven't been too bad at all.
