ohhh life.

i haven't blogged in weeks!


considering there used to be days when i couldn't wait to get my hands on a key board so i could pass on my gems of wisdom to you guys...it's leaving me a little bit out of sorts.

and yet, i actually feel like i can't keep my eyes open long enough right now to share anything awesome with you right at the moment.

i will leave you with this though:

 yesterday I wandered around walmart for a half hour, gave up attempting to get any of the things i actually went there for and ended up having a roast beef sandwich at subway for dinner & getting a gel manicure.

at walmart.

that place is like disneyland for the hopeless.

chat soon? don't abandon me just yet?

absence makes the heart grow fonder :)

with a heart full of hope & a mind full of dreams,

little letters



Photobucket

{or saturday's letters as it seems}

dearest adopted students: looks like we'll be hanging out together for another four weeks. guess we can't be twitter friends justtttt yet. (or ever.) dear dream job: will you be mine? please, pretty please? dear mane of mine: thanks for being awesome these last few days. if only you'd grow to some luscious great lengths in the blink of an eye. dear dphie: thanks for reminding me why i chose to be a part of this experience so many years ago, and renewing my love of a bigger sisterhood. dear hope high school track: you were exactly what i needed the other day. doing laps on your bright rubber track turf thingy surface made me feel accomplished especially since i was there by choice and not because someone was yelling at me to run. (ohhhh, high school memoriesssss) dear LBD: apparently everyone has a go to one hanging in their closests. i am not one of those people, but i finally found one i love and got it in two sizes, my current size and a smaller one, yep. get going diet, keep it up. Dear Alice in Wonderland, all the Narnia movies and all the Harry Potter movies:  how many times can I watch you this weekend? so far I've got one Harry, one Narnia and two Alice viewings done and done. and saturdays not even over yet. Dear South Carolina: i want you to be my home. i know you're mad since i moved further north instead, but i'll get there i promise. Dear nest on my head, again: i know you've finally quit on cooperating with me {except for your rare behavior tis week} but when you do grow to great lengths sometime in the future i plan on doing this, this or this so get growing. dear anyone i talk to, and by talk i mean text: if i ask you what you're doing, the polite thing to do is ask what i am doing as well, even if you don't care. i acknowledge tons of convos i could care less about on a daily basis, i'd appreciate it if you'd fake it sometimes for me too. dear crockpot: loveyou, you self sufficient pot of love, you. dear top knots: you've replaced my go to braid for last minute hairstyles. three bobby pins and im good to go? sold. dear mustache jokes and paraphenalia: you make everything better. Dear self: something about hearing people call you Ms. Cort a million times a day never gets old, and yet never sounds normal at the same time. Still think someone is talking to me when i hear "Sarah?" get used to it. dear guy i met online: you seemed legit, and we had a mutual friend in common so i was more willing to give this whole online thing a shot. we had plans to meet, and then i stopped hearing from you two days before our plans and haven't since. so why are we facebook friends? you want to know about my life, but not actually meet me in person? ohok. dear genetics: thanks for keeping me looking young. it might get annoying having people mistake me for a student on the regular, but...it did come in handy yesterday when i decided lunch duty was the most boring experience of my life and decided to blend myself in with the students and slowly back my way out of the caf.

and...that's all. (or way too much)

Happy weekend lovebugs!

with a heart full of hope & a mind full of dreams

all bobby pins are not created equal

linking up with michelle at the vintage apple for 
oh how pinteresting wednesday!

{ i don't know why it won't let me paste her link up button in here...but i have a sneaking suspicion it's because i'm at work and not supposed to be on blogger} 


a superficial post about things that i { and probably you} shouldn't care about
since theyre not #reallifeproblems
but do anyway:


i wish my favorite nail polishes were never ending. like the bottle just refilled themselves when they were running low
all bobby pins are NOT created equal
my hair and i really should learn how to co exist
hairstyles that are supposed to look "easy and thrown together" should not require 20 bobby pins OR 10 minutes or more to accomplish.


high school kids are awkward. and really tall.

{you get a picture of me for this one. i imagine this is the perspective the kids have when they look (down) at me. except im wearing appropriate clothes and am not in a bar. }


6 am should really happen more like at 11.. or even 12.

fresh made, hand rolled doughnuts smell delicious and should be healthy for you

when i pin things, they should just automatically appear in my closet. custome tailored, to fit my t rex proportioned little arms and legs, and my little duck feet.

like this:

that time where i told a guy that i know we're meant to be...and i'm totally not kidding.

so..

do you believe in premonitions? because i sure do.

i've written about this before but let's recap for those of you who are new around here :)

i believe in signs. i believe in premonitions. i believe in feelings.

now you can call me crazy, but...there are just some things that have happened that i just KNEW were going to happen, and then boom there it was.

like that time i randomly decided to go visit a college campus for no apparent reason since i was already attending  a perfectly good college and all of a sudden walking down the street { despite the rain and homeless people all over the place} i just got this vision of myself being there on a warm sunny day walking down the street on my way somewhere. in a state i'd never been to before nor had ever had the urge to live in. and off i went.

i've started friendships with people, made phone calls, turned left instead of right...all because i got these feelings.

sooo back to my point here. once upon a time, a few months ago, i had a vision of myself in the future happily in a relationship with my brothers best friend from college.

yep.

like legit, i felt it. like that feeling when you're doing something completely mundane with someone you care about and are totally and ridiculously happy in that moment.

weird, i know.

wanna know what's weirder?
{ is weirder a word by the way? no matter }

what's weirder is that we've never even met up to that point.

again, weird, i know.
not even once. i have no idea how since i had visited my brother at school and went to his graduation and met his other friends, and they had even come to visit us at our home on more than one occasion but never once had i met this guy. i'd heard my brother on the phone with him, i'd make comments and say hello, I randomly facebook friended him one day weeks before this thing happend just because i thought it was weird that he was such a part of my brothers life, and i really wasn't even sure what he looked like.

but there i was, completely convinced that i had a future with him.

AND you know what else is weird?

i randomly told my sister about it and was like "blah, blah, blah, insert his first name here blahblahblah insert his nickname here" ( notice that i used his first name and then his nickname, the nickname is what did us in here) and she says to me ...."Sarah, i had this feeling the other day that you were going to be in a relationship with someone named inserthisnicknamehere and i said to myself but Sarahs never mentioned anyone she knows with that name before...and now you are!"

yep, my sister believes in feelings too.

and then i met him. and you know what? i agreed with my subconscious.

like taylor sings:

{  It was enchanting to meet you, all I know is I was enchanted to meet you }

i really was. i really am.

it turns out that he is actually every thing i ever knew and didn't know i wanted in my dream guy.
and that was just after a weekend of spending time with him and my brother.

so i did the only logical thing there was to do:

i told him that we were meant to be.

yep. completely normal. let it be known that i have no concept of boundaries when i am interested in someone. i put it all out there. heart first.

so since then we talk, here there, randomly about things and it makes my heart happy every time. and he apparently doesn't think i'm crazy about this idea that one day in the future the timings going to work itself out and we're going to fall madly in love. my parents think it's a great idea, and love him. my dad really believes it's going to happen which says a lot about this whole thing because for the last ten years he's been telling me I was going to end up with my high school boyfriend so I shouldn't get too invested in any of my other relationships in the meantime. yep, so you know the fact that he now seriously believes in this match up makes it for real.

so who knows what will happen. maybe we're meant to be or maybe we aren't but i like to believe in things. and considering i make reference to our future life together every time i talk to him and he is still talking to me, maybe he doesn't think it's too far out there in the realm of possibilities.

so..here's hoping..because i think it would make a really good  lovestory to tell at our wedding ;)

what do you think? am i a little nuts?

with a heart full of hope & a mind full of dreams

xo,

Sarah
