Sometimes...

...things just don't go the way you want them too.

Sometimes the Utah air gets all smoggy and inversion-y in winter and you can tell that it smells bad even through your congested nose. Sometimes doing what you're supposed to do and what you think will make you happy just puts you in a bad mood. Sometimes you really want a nap. Sometimes you briefly think you get to sleep in the next morning and then realize that you actually have to be at work at 8 a.m. Sometimes you try to make dinner with your roommate and end up being home for dinner only one night a week. Sometimes there's a letter that was sent to your home address that your family takes over a week to forward to you. Sometimes Facebook is all screwy and sometimes you play phone tag with a girl you miss with all your soul and just want to talk to for the first time in weeks (when you're used to seeing her every day) before she leaves on her mission. Sometimes you have a headache and are behind because you were sick, and will probably get more behind tonight. Sometimes the mail comes 5 hours late. Sometimes you feel like a horrible person. Sometimes Life just hates you.

But then again...

Sometimes it's fairly warm outside, for a January day, anyway. And sometimes you got two unexpected letters in one day. Sometimes you log into a campus computer and look at your blog and get really excited at how it looks on the bigger screen. Sometimes you suddenly look over into the hallway from your seat in the lab right by the door and see two of your favorite professors from freshman year talking to each other (Miller and Benfell, fyi). Sometimes you just have fun going overboard using repetition and the word "sometimes." Sometimes you remember that there is a Pizza Muffin party tonight and that it is what you've been waiting for and that there is a new episode of Bones this week and that you are in the Thursday night University Band conducted by Brother Arnold and so you get to play sax with Amber. Sometimes you have cute pea coats and help people find things at work. Sometimes you miss England, but in a happy way.

Sometimes life is awful and wonderful at the same time.

I never sometimes love you. That's always. No matter what life sometimes does.

And my verification word is oldente. Which makes me think of al dente, which makes me want pasta. Bye.

You know what's sad. I totally know what you mean about blogging on a bigger computer screen.

I love you.
