1. I have no idea who to root for in the Super Bowl. The only tie I have to either team is that Joani Crean is the sister of the two Harbaugh brothers. And Joani Crean is the wife of Tom Crean. Who is the coach of my Indiana Hoosiers. But that doesn’t help me pick a team to back in the Super Bowl. Who should I cheer for, internet?
2. Speaking of football, my favorite episode of any TV show ever may have been last week’s Parks & Rec episode. So much Indiana love. I may or may not have squealed aloud when Andrew Luck and Reggie Wayne showed up. And let’s talk about how Andy Dwyer is one of the best characters on TV, k?
3. I’m trying really hard to not be negative on social media. I think Twitter and Facebook can be such positive and inspiring place when we want them to be. But sometimes, I feel like I’m walking into a dark cloud of negativity when I check my timeline. So, I’m trying to not add to the negativity. It’s not easy, but it doesn’t really help anyone when I tweet about the annoying driver who didn’t use their turn signal. And, personally, it doesn’t help me either (although, I understand ranting is a legitimately effective way to relieve stress for some folks). Before I send a tweet or update my Facebook status, I’ve been asking myself, “When someone else sees this, will it improve their day, make it worse, or not impact them at all?” I’m probably over-thinking it, but sometimes I feel like I forget how much my words mean. And I’d like to start remembering. This also means that I’ve written and deleted no less than 44,030 tweets in the last few weeks.
4. I love toe socks.
5. I can’t get the thought of hiking the Grand Canyon from rim-to-rim out of my head. I’ve never seen the Grand Canyon, and I think hiking the whole thing would be such an incredible way to see it for the first time. Plus, I can’t even imagine the sense of accomplishment that comes from tackling that. One day…
