Why I Love This Picture

Ok, full disclosure- I should be writing my goal of 3 more pages of my comps at this moment instead of writing about this picture.

However, I'm in my first week of comps and I realized today that I have been looking at this picture a lot this week, especially when I get  frustrated or tired.

(I also look at this one,

but that's for other reasons. P.S., I found that on APW's blog, I did not take the picture myself-though I need that mug). 

This morning I realized what I was doing.  I love this picture because it reminds me every time that these people have got my back and that I can do this-- no matter what "this" is.  Right now, "this" is my 6 week comprehensive exam hell.  Sometimes, "this" is when I feel like I have no idea what I'm doing with my life, sometimes it's when I just have a bad day or do something wrong, and sometimes it's good things.  For instance, my sister's wedding , or vacation, or celebrating a new addition, or that I'm freaking going to get out of school for the last time within a year/year and a half, dammit!

That's the stuff that life is all about and I couldn't be more lucky.  So thanks visual representation of my cheerleading squad/peanut gallery.  Love you guys.
