This blog follows no particular theme. My constant craving soul just wont allow it! This is my musings on wisdom, travels, life in Spain, kettlebells, running, rock music and so much more.

Legendary life

"What a day for a daydream, what a day for a daydreamin' girl..." *insert jolly whistling*
Aaah, yes I am having one of those days when I feel on top of the world! That anything is possible and I am grateful for my legendary life! I have a feeling I will be using a lot of these ! today!
But you know what, and this may come as a shock to some of my loyal readers, I am not even going to try and analyze why I am feeling this way, just flowin' with it dude!

Today I played hooky from my school work, yeah shame on me but I really thought that going shopping and having lunch with a friend would be so much more fun. And guess what? I was totally correct on that matter! And I found three gorgeous and totally different summer dresses, you all can see what I am looking forward to... Sultry summer nights (and days, I take whatever I can get!). I am actually not much of a shopper, but when the mood hits me I better get out there and do it or else I would be walking around in any old rags!

At lunch Sara and I were talking a lot about friendship and came upon the topic of "friendship hierarchy". I think it is mostly a female thing when we divide our friends into different levels on the "closeness" scale. Have not really thought about it so much before but that is probably what most women do. Sure you can have a couple on the same level but no more then that. I wonder why that is? Don't we have the ability to love all our friends the same or we just preference some to others?
And some friends are good for somethings while some are better for others. I guess that is, in a way, what makes our world go round... When we were younger the amount of friends sort of defined who we were, the more friends the higher value you had as a person. But that all changes (thank God) when we grow up. I could go on about my friendship queries but that will be enough for today. Let me know what you think!

Never get between a woman and her kettlebell!! LOL!
