Then, love the World

April 1st, 2019 by Bekah Brunstetter

I’ve been trying to (once a week when I remember) start my day with a few Mary Oliver poems. I already had my brain on the question of whether or not being a hopeful / optimistic person is a privilege of the privileged, but then this:

REGARDLESS OF WHY IT’S THERE: LOVE YOURSELF; FORGET IT: LOVE THE WORLD

BOWELS OF THE DARK WEB

March 26th, 2019 by Bekah Brunstetter

Last night, deep in the trashcan of the Internet, I stumbled across this heinous, vile (BEAUTIFUL) thing called Couples Acroyoga, in which COUPLES DO YOGA CRAZY YOGA POSES ON EACH OTHER AND ALSO KISS:

Do they like it? Or Is it forced? Does she say, hey Jason, let’s do the thing and he’s like ugh Melissa, right NOW? And she’s like JASON YOU PROMISED

Do they puke on each other before, after, during or all of it? ALSO, MOST IMPORTANTLY,  I WANT TO DO IT, HOW LONG UNTIL MORRISON AND I ARE CASUALLY DOING IT WHILE WATCHING TV

ALSO HOW DO YOU MEASURE TIME WHEN IT’S NEVER

Sadie

March 20th, 2019 by Bekah Brunstetter

Internets, meet my new niece! Sadie Madison Brunstetter, born two weeks ago to my bro Pete and his wife Mary! She entered the world with hair red like our paternal grandmother, Roberta, and INFINITE POWERS.

Upon her birth, I did what any normal, well adjusted aunt woman would do and SOBBED FOR THREE DAYS BECAUSE I ALWAYS IMAGINED MORRISON AND I MIGHT HAVE A DAUGHTER, BORN WITH HAIR RED LIKE MY PATERNAL GRANDMOTHER AND ALSO INFINITE POWERS, but now that those feelings have leveled, I can now look at pictures of her and just be squishy, and proud of my Brother, and Glad for Life.

Meme’s the word

January 29th, 2019 by Bekah Brunstetter

I’ve never wanted this blog to be a space where I just share memes, as it seems lazy, and is the below even a Meme?, and WHAT IS A MEME? But still, here:

Sent to me by Erin who knows me infinitely, and left without comment, except for all of the comments I just made. BYE, OFF TO FIND LOVE (CHEESE)

PROUD GRADUATES

January 21st, 2019 by Bekah Brunstetter

Of the Mandy Moore school of Standing

I SAID WE GRADUATED, I DIDN’T SAY WE MADE ANY SORT OF HONOR ROLL / BASICALLY WE WERE ALL JUST GIVEN SMALL PURSES AND POINTS FOR TRYING

THE LIFE CHANGING MAGIC OF KIDNAPPING

January 19th, 2019 by Bekah Brunstetter

Marie Kondo: okay, Bekah. I want you to take all of your clothes out of your closets and drawers, pile them onto your bed. Next, take each piece one by one. If it sparks joy for you, keep it. If it does not, thank it for being in your life, then put it in a pile to donate.

Me: Okay!

Marie Kondo:…Why do you have my children?

Me: HMM? OH. They spark joy for me.

Marie Kondo: My children are not your clothes.

Me: BUT THEIR CHEEKS AND TINY DRESSES

Marie Kondo: Please give me my children back?

Me: (as I run away carrying them)  SORRY, NOTHING ELSE SPARKS THIS MUCH JOY, I HAVE TO GO TUCK THEM NEATLY INTO A DRAWER, BYYEEEEEE

gratble; humbful

December 20th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

Back from a beautiful, productive few days in Idyllwild, armed with some new life lessons:

  1. The question is not SHOULD I get clam chowder; the question is WHEN SHOULD.
  2. Always sit close to old men in Christmas Sweaters; always eavesdrop on them.
  3. Always be humble and grateful.
  4. If there isn’t a picture of you being humble and grateful, then it didn’t happen.
  5. If you don’t get a picture of yourself being humble and grateful, go back and get a picture of it.
  6. Don’t let any one catch you doing this tho, as there is no lower life moment than a person catching you taking a picture of yourself, being grateful.
