- T for NICE cops. Yes, you heard me. I had NEVER been pulled over by a cop since I began driving almost six years ago (weird) until Tuesday night. I got a call from a friend who was having a bad night, so of course in Super Shelby fashion, I sped across campus. I had been in bed, so needless to say, my hair was not reveling in its glory days. As I was driving, I was not paying attention to what was behind me until.... the BLUE lights. Doesn't your heart always sink? Mine did. So, I pulled over to only realize NO LICENSE. Perfect. So with the biggest smile I could muster, I turned and saw the cop approach my window. He asked for my license, only for me to explain that I did not have my license-my friend called me in a panic for all I knew she could be hurt (yes, I pulled that sympathy card)- that I left in a hurry and didn't even intend to be driving- I am so sorry I am only going a mile off campus- ramble. When I was finished, I suppose the cop noticed how deranged I looked with my messy hair and ceaseless ramble and asked, "Mam, have you been drinking tonight?" I thought that my outfit, lack of make-up, and mangy mane did the job of explaining I was half asleep, but apparently not. I smiled and said no where he proceeded to ask if I had dead bodies in the car that he needed to know about (by this time, I picked up that he was kidding). Then to my miraculous surprise, he let me go scot-free when I had NO license. So major props to you, Mr. Policeman. Glad to see the meeting-quota-ticket-hungry force has not conquered everyone yet.
- T for Surprises. I love surprises, I really do. However, I have the nosy tendency to discover surprises by being snoopy (I was that kid who searched the house high and low for Christmas presents) or by finding the weakest link and badgering them until I got the desired information or by over-analyzing every possible situation. Yet, boyfriend is smart, and boyfriend is wonderful. While I thought he was sitting in his apartment in Texas watching a TV show, he was pulling onto campus in Mississippi. I got a call to go outside Wednesday night, and he was there. I literally was in s-h-o-c-k. He was in town for a recruiting event for work, so I got to hang out with him the past two days. It was just wonderful and just what I needed before finals started.
- T for this past school-year. As the clock struck 3:45pm yesterday, I put the finishing touches on Junior year. I had my last class of my third year of college. I am still trying to figure out where the past three years have gone. I feel like I could walk back into room 1015 and find a freshman girl sitting on a red rug with her nose in most likely a Biology book never knowing where the next few years would take her. Yet, this past year has been absolutely amazing. I would not trade it for anything. I have gotten to do so many great things over the past school year and have made so many unforgettable memories. Although I only have one year left in this magical place, I am so grateful for the experiences I have had thus far.
- T for YOU. Yes, you, whoever you are reading this! I am glad that you stopped by to read my rambles and daily thoughts and for experiencing this crazy life with me so-to-speak. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and that you too can find a few T's in TGIF.
Happy Friday and May the 4th Be with You. (Yep, it's National Star Wars Day, and although I am not a fan, who is going to miss out on that incredibly cheesy pun? Not me!)
