So, this is my life.

And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.

misty water-colored mmrs

forgive my sentimentality this morning, but i'm facing a sad day. the sky weeps for me as i take a step i've been putting off for more than a month.

it's time to get rid of my cell phone. i haven't used it since the Blackberry was invented approximately one month ago, but i've been holding onto it for a different reason.

you see, sometimes late at night when all the world is sleeping, i stay up and click through old text messages. some are funny, some are sweet, but most of them are my primary reminders of important or exciting events. and so i save them.

don't judge. you probably do it, too.

so as i get ready to pull the SIM card out of my cute little Lauren Conrad LG phone, i'd like to share with you, as well as keep on record, just a few of my favorite received text memories:

minutes after i found out i passed the bar exam and texted everyone who cared:
