that's a wrap.

i'm not feeling very thankful lately. i've been compiling thankful lists in my head for the past few days, but they just stay in my head - the thankfulness doesn't extend to any other part of me. i KNOW i am thankful, but i don't FEEL thankful, and i don't know that i've been ACTING particularly thankful either. and yet, i am compelled to continue and complete my thankful list. because i am a kind-of-crazy perfectionist who cannot leave an attainable challenge unfinished.

62. headphones.
63. musicals.
64. fun outings with my inlaws.
