1. my dad (the biggest music critic) told me the song I arranged was very good (and I did it in 3 days)
2. I texted a friend and asked if it was weird that sometimes I just want to call him to talk to him and hear his voice because we didn't talk for two years and he said "no that's why I keep calling you."
So, it's good to be wanted and great to be told good job, especially by your parents.
Other things I take for granted.
Eating dinner with a good friend that I don't see often.
Getting my nails done with an old roommate to catch up.
Working with people that make me laugh constantly.
Having roommates I can tolerate.
Friends that make me want to be a better person.
Friends that watch my back (even though one of them tried to say I was drinking... ugh long story short... small town, big rumors.)
Having my parents a phone call away. I miss them but honestly hearing their voices make my life a billion times better.
