Dear 100 Hour Board,
Will you tell me about something small but good that has happened to you recently?
In the last week little girls have mistaken me for both Anna and Elsa.
Also a cute guy from work told me that I have pretty eyes today.
I've been sick for most of this week but my dad brought me ibuprofen and a heat pack, which has helped a lot. Also, my sister watched the first two episodes of Stranger Things with me over the weekend, and wow. I can see why everyone's been talking about it for the past eight months.
The 80 nm slices of mouse brain I was making turned out perfectly.
Also, in church last week, someone played the first movement of Bach's "Sonata No. 1 in G. Minor" for solo violin, and it was exquisite.
Well, one of my friends just showed up at my door with a plate of cookies for me this past week.
Something else that's pretty recent is that my depressive episodes have been drastically shortened, and I've actually learned some super effective methods (for me) of how to better get through those gloomy periods. It all has to do with actually recognizing what it is I want, and better managing my life to achieve those things.
Getting to address a response as "Dear Vienna" is pretty good. That happens to be one of my favorite Owl City songs.
Tally and I get to watch Auto Surf's dog for the weekend!
Man, Certainly is working two jobs right now while waiting for security clearance that's a required prereq to his next career step (and which takes several months). The whole thing where he works two jobs and I'm a law student means that we don't see a ton of each other, but it's kind of awesome how makes me appreciate how much I love him and how nice it is when he's around.
~Anne, Certainly (taking a bit out of the "silver sandwich." Thanks, Zuko.)
Well, you and a few other ward members were very complimentary of the lesson I helped teach in Sunday School today, and that gave me all sorts of warm fuzzies. So, thanks for that!
You know what? You rock. Thanks for asking this question and making us all reflect on the positive things in our lives. I hope that things have been going swimmingly for you.
When I was puking last week, my fiance showed up with a case of gatorade and put off his homework to keep me company and watch TV with me.
Then I recovered from my food poisoning in time to go to a sleepover with my three best friends who I haven't seen in far too long, and it was glorious.
My parents have been wanting to move as they near retirement, so I showed them a couple houses in Santaquin and they fell in love with one of them. They are now under contract and will be closing in April!

I finally got a healthcare job!

I had a good conversation with some friends on a group Facebook chat, and I was relieved they still cared what I was up to. Maintaining friendships is hard for me, so this was a nice moment.
Hope you are doing well,
