Friday Faves

I have this cute little friend profile/address book thing that I got in Japan when I was in middle school. I still carry it around with me, and yes, I have made my college friends fill out these profiles as well. They have all these random fill-in-the-blanks like “what is your favorite (color, animal, whatevs)” and fun “what if” questions. One of the sections asks you to list the top three things you’re into at the moment. It can be anything from a food you’re been craving recently, or a trip you took or whatever. For example, I’ve listed stuff like mittens, tea, and time with friends for this question. I loved that little portion of the profiles so much, I’ve used the “top three” as a periodic check-in for myself. I like to think it helps me be more grateful and appreciate the little things in life. It can also be a fun little conversation with friends. I’ve definitely collected book  and food recommendations by asking friends for their current top three interests.  I’ve decided to try out the practice in blog format, and since today is Friday, I’m gonna play with some alliteration and call it my Friday Faves. Maybe you’ll find some fun things to check out, or get inspired to try the “top three” gratitude practice yourself.

College Medicine Cabinet Essentials

I’m finally getting over an unfortunate bout of seasonal allergies. You’d think by early June this wouldn’t be a problem anymore, but apparently those spring allergies hit me a bit later this year. The campus grounds crew was also doing some serious lawn mowing and general tiding up for commencement and reunion weekends so maybe I’m just allergic to freshly cut grass or something. Anyway, anyway, my friends finally got tired of hearing me sneeze and sniffle, so next time we went shopping I made an addition to my personal mini college “medicine cabinet.” I think I’ve gotten to the point where my collection of meds covers enough of the basic sickness woes one might face in college without being too excessive. I don’t want to buy and hold on to a bunch of stuff I’ll never end up using. In celebration of this new buy, and in preparation for anyone who may need to start or update their college medicine cabinet, I’m sharing the simple basic items I’ve found helpful to have on hand in college.
