Today we learned how to write a complaint letter to a business when a product isn't quite up to par. Since this class is all about writing in the business world, I found today's class to be very beneficial. I had never known there was a specific way to whine about a lame product, but trust me there is!! Anywho, as we were discussing the importance of remaining polite while complaining, my professor mentioned a phrase that I often apply to my own life: You catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar. You can get farther in life by being kind and polite than by having a bad attitude about unpleasant situations. You will give off a more positive vibe by approaching life with optimism instead of pessimism. Basically, if you want to be a happier, lovelier person, then be nice! It seems so simple, yet I often find myself repeating this mantra in my head. As humans, we are easily frustrated and annoyed if a situation doesn't go our way or if someone is
Ok, ramblings done for the day! After class the madre and I headed out on a nice little bike ride. Except it happened to be a 16 mile trail. And it happened to be very hot outside. And the trail happened to contain multiple hills. But it ain't no thang. We still set out on our endeavor, pedaling happily along!
When we finally got back to our car, I was absolutely starving. I hadn't eaten since before I went to class at 8:00am so my belly was sc!reaming at me. The madre and happened upon this adorable little cafe/food store called the Gourmet Cafe. It was a little hidden off the main road, so I wasn't sure what to expect. However, I was very surprised. They had an amazing sandwich selection with fresh ingredients. I wanted to try everything on the menu! I decided to stick with a roasted chicken and avocado panini, sans cheese. It was to die for. Just what my grumbling belly needed.
The boyfran called a little while later when he got out of class, and we decided that we're going to dinner tomorrow night to celebrate his birthday. He'll be 21 on Wednesday!!!! I seriously love celebrating birthdays, and I honestly think I get more excited for his birthday than for mine. Exhibit A:
|Birthday goodies. (not in a dirty way).|
While those little nuggets baked, I finished wrapping his presents.
|Add wrapped up.|
|He loves calling me his girlfriend.|
|Top. (his initials).|
|Got my nerd on.|
Til next time,Shelby
