My current theme song

When I first heard this song I thought it was pretty, but then I listened to the lyrics and it's a good theme song for my life right now-- all about the fun and freedom of being young and single but with a tone of uncertainty.  That's me in a nutshell.

Since I'm turning 25 this year I've been in freak out mode a bit, but I'm slowly starting to come to terms with the fact that it's ok that I'm not where I thought I'd be when I was younger.  My aspirations are still acheiveable, and it's not the timing that I had planned, but I'm incredibly happy, surrounded by amazing friends and family who support me through the good and bad and I'm looking forward to what lies ahead of me.

This is a way healthier place than I was at just last month.  As I get nearer to my 25th birthday, I realize I have so much to be thankful for.  Next weekend one of my oldest friends is coming in town and I get to meet her baby boy!  A year ago she was here in Austin visiting me for a friend's bachelorette party and now she's a mom.  That wasn't the plan.  But it's life and we're living it, and I'm ecstatic to meet her son. 

A strange new experience last night was calling a friend of mine to babysit for when my friend and her baby come in town.  The girl that I called has babysat for me when I was unable to babysit, and I know she's trustworthy because I worked with her during the 2010 election.  The strange part is she is good friends with a girl I babysat for when I was a junior in high school, and she's now babysitting for my friend's baby.  It's a weird world.

Lyrics to "Good Life" by One Republic

Woke up in London yesterday
Found myself in the city near Piccadilly
Don't really know how I got here
I got some pictures on my phone

New names and numbers that I don't know
Address to places like Abbey Road
Day turns to night, night turns to whatever we want
We're young enough to say

Oh this has gotta be the good life
This has gotta be the good life
This could really be a good life, good life

Say oh, got this feeling that you can't fight
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life
A good, good life

To my friends in New York, I say hello
My friends in L.A. they don't know
Where I've been for the past few years or so
Paris to China to Colorado

Sometimes there's airplanes I can' t jump out
Sometimes there's bullshit that don't work now
We are god of stories but please tell me
What there is to complain about

When you're happy like a fool
Let it take you over
When everything is out
You gotta take it in

I feel like there might be something that I'll miss
I feel like the window closes oh so quick
I'm taking a mental picture of you now
'Cuz hopelessly
The hope is we have so much to feel good about
