Memories of 2016

Wednesday, January 04, 2017

One of my New Year's goals of 2016 was to start a memory jar just writing little things that happened throughout my day. It was supposed to help me live in the moment and appreciate the little things in life. I was definitely more successful at this task early in the year. None the less though I'm excited to remember all of these fun memories especially all the ones from months ago. And I definitely plan on doing this or 2017. Sorry if this post is all over the place!

January 1: Feeling embarrased....cut my wrist at work 
     I dropped a candle at work and glass filled the ground. I was super embarrassed but was even 
    more embarrased when I saw blood covering my thigh.  I then realized I cut my wrist open. It     didn't hurt one bit. Everyone at work was freaking out though, especially my boss. I didn't think it was that bad until they said I needed stitches. And that's exactly what happened. I needed 5 stitches. It was a great way to start the new year. I still have the scar from the cut and the stitches mark. (Plus I blew the companies safety record...opps)
