Good morning, Aggieland!
When I woke up today, I was pretty sure the best I could hope for was just to live through it.  Six in the morning is brutal, especially when you only have anything to do with each other because of a Criminology final.  It came and went without too much yawning, but I had to have a nap before I could even think about studying for my next final of the day—Philosophy at 3:30.

But as usual, I napped too long.  So then I was sure that not only was today going to be tiring, but also that my Philosophy final was going to completely destroy me.  (Fortunately that wasn't the case, but that's not the point.)

But then, as I was sitting in class, waiting for my professor to show up to give us the final, I saw in my inbox that I needed to approve a comment for this here blog—AND I saw that the comment was congratulating me on getting Blog of Note.  I'm pretty sure my jaw literally dropped.  I was so excited!  I've always wanted to be on that list of notable blogs.

So in short, I want to say thanks to whoever is responsible, I guess.  I'm not sure who it's appropriate to thank.  Either way, I'm thankful!  Which is the point.  And a big THANK YOU to all of you guys dropping by to check out my blog.  It makes me smile.  :-)

Hi there! (all the way from Korea)

To be honest, I never really click on "Blogs of Note" but today I did and came across yours - only to find this post about it :-)

I'll come back and 'visit' you some time. ^_^ Sheetal

Congratulations! Thank you for bumping of "The House of Marrakesh" from the Blog of Note podium; it has been on my screen for about two months at least. I mean, it's a good blog, but enough is enough.

Hi there! I really love your posts. It's great to see a fellow college student blogging. I wish I would have began blogging when I first started school, it's an amazing journey! Great post - I totally relate to the Philosophy final lol.

Eve said...

Hi Sarah,

congratulations to your blog-of-notice award. This is the way I found you from Bavaria Germany :-)
I will visit you again and wish you a very nice evening !

Hello there,

Well getting selected has, from the look of things, actually made your day, or at least allowed it to be a little more than just bearable, hence 'Congratulations' seems to be in place.

Having said that, and gone through the short visible bio of yours, I am just hoping that it's not Domino's Pizza that you happen to be a fan of. As that was the first thing which crossed my mind upon coming across your blog and having spent a few seconds, so just wanted to convey that.

With the hope that finals are going well. Last time I was in any kind of educational institution, didn't really go that well for me, so just hoping that you are currently having a better time.

Take care.

CBWriter said...

I really like the look of your blog. I am a bit frustrated with mine! Are you having any trouble with comments?

Hi Sarah,
I would like to thank you for the efforts you have made in composing this article. I am going for the same best work from you in the future as well. In fact your fanciful writing abilities has prompted me to start my own blog now. Actually the blogging is spreading its wings rapidly. Your write up is a fine example of it.

Picosita said...

Congrats! Usually the Blogs of Note are hit or miss for me...usually MISS (I get tired of using an encyclopedia to fully understand someone's post haha...) Yours is simple to read/understand and is relatable, good job!

Sarah Thomas said...

@Montag—Haha you're welcome! I'd noticed it had been awhile since the Blogs of Note page hadn't changed in awhile. And thanks for the congratulations. :-)

@MsHorcruxes—I'll definitely check out your blog! Thanks for stopping by!

@T. Donne`—Thanks so much! I appreciate you taking the time to check out my blog. :-) I know what it's like to be a busy college kid, that's for sure!

@Jennifer—Thanks! My dog is like my child, so I love getting complements on his cuteness. ;-)

@CBWriter—I haven't really had trouble with comments, per se, although I've certainly never gotten so many as I have been lately. I hope whatever is frustrating you about your blog stops being annoying!

@Red—I'm so glad you like it! I just visited your blog, and I totally sometimes think I'm a pack-rat, too. ;-)

@Danny—Thank you! Happy to know my life sounds interesting. Sometimes I have to remind myself that it is. :-)

@Arali—I like your blog! Those pictures are really cool. Is that your sketchbook? Good luck with fashion design!

@Picosita—Thanks! I'm glad you like it. I know what you mean, about needing a dictionary on hand. Haha Thanks for dropping by and commenting!

The Reading Bear said...

Thanks for all your wonderful comments!
Based on some of the things you've said on your comments we may be two birds of the same feather. ;D Is that right? No matter. I think you knew what I meant.

I am glad you continued your road trip with your Dad! I see you guys are having a blast. =) Pictures please?

Sarah Thomas said...

You’re very welcome! :-)
I’d say we definitely share some feathers. And yes, we had an awesome time. Pictures are forthcoming! And I have lots and lots of ‘em!

Theresa said...

Yay for you! So proud that a fellow Aggie and Tarrant County resident could show up as a Blog of Note. Well done!
