Things We Take for Granted:
1. Indie Bands
Because you can’t listen to Cleopatra by The Lumineers or All I Want by Kodaline without feeling complete euphoria.
Take a drive through Glacier National Park and you’ll know what I mean. I’m convinced nothing bad ever happens in Montana.
Waterfalls are a phenomenon that humans don’t deserve. Take the time to really stop and watch a couple thousand gallons of water cascading down a cliff and tell me you aren’t amazed. (see also: Montana)
4. Fried food
Need I say more? Either its fried or its served with cheese. ‘Merica.
If you’ve gone more than a few months without grabbing a good book and vegging on a hammock…. You better have a good reason.\
6. Local libraries
Free books and movies and a quiet place to escape… why aren’t we taking advantage of these things more often?
For those of us that actually get to experience it, we are lucky. White Christmases. Canceled classes.. Winter sports. Stop complaining that the roads aren’t salted and enjoy staying inside with a cup of hot chocolate
