Allergy season approaches! The buds are beautiful even though they give some of us the sniffles. Kind of like life, right? Like, things are so beautiful but they also sometimes make you cry. I dunno. I thought that was cute. It’s been a long day.

Now feels like a good time to get your art out there! Do any number of things, as long as it makes you feel good and helps you express your emotions! Try watercolors. I feel like they’re the superior art medium, as someone who knows next to nothing about painting.

Appreciate the little things in life. Today I ate some baby carrots. So fantastic! Do you see that tree outside your window? No, the other one. That’s my favorite tree on campus :) “But Madi, how do you know which tree it is?” Checkmate! ALL trees are my favorite tree.

I’ve been feeling very nostalgic lately, and maybe you have, too. When I think about the past it makes me sad and wistful. Are you sad and wistful? Try looking out the window sadly and wistfully. Maybe others will notice and make a remark. Then you might become a famous actor.

Now is not the time to shy away from what you want. Like, if you want boba, you should say, “Wow. I really want boba.” Nobody will do anything about it (unless you have very kind friends), but it’ll be good that at least other people in your life know about your plight.

Part of me is very tired and wants to sleep forever, but part of me wants to RUN. If you want to run physically, make sure to do it within the allotted area. If you want to run metaphorically (like, away from problems, for instance), don’t do that. Just go on a regular run.

There are so many things that I appreciate about others that I don’t end up saying out loud because it’s “weird” or whatever. But honestly? WHO CARES! Be unabashedly obsessed with your friends! Tell them you like their shirt or their attitude or their vibes! Life’s too short!

Routine is good but sometimes it can get you stuck in a rut. How do you feel about ducks? Look up pictures of ducks. Right now, do it. The stars told me to tell you to do it. There. Something different for your day. Feel better? And people say astrology is fake!

The light at the end of the COVID tunnel is oh-so close but remember to still be safe! Socially distant gatherings are still IN. Hang outside with your pals and gossip about the hottest people in all your classes. One of them might walk by and it’ll be really cute. Or really awkward.

Listening to sad music is fine, but listening to happy music is SO FUN. It’s, like, scientifically impossible to be sad when you’re blasting Carly Rae Jepsen. If you have some good happy songs to listen to when you’re sad, send them to me. I’ll make us a playlist.

Astrology is funny because it’s kinda fake but also kinda real, which is cool. Like, I probably couldn’t tell you what you had for breakfast but I might be able to tell you something else. I can’t tell you what that thing is, though; not here. Not like this. Text me and maybe then.

You only need like an ounce of orange juice a day to not get scurvy. Pretty cool, right? And did you know that the FDA once had to bust an underground Amish raw milk ring? I know lots of food-related facts. It’s fun, but I don’t know enough to be good at crossword puzzles.
