You know those periods of nostalgic regression? When you start listening to music that you used to like "back in the day", when you feel urges to do things you haven't done since you were a kid – like making snow forts, going sledding, going down a slide and climbing the ladder as fast as you can just so you can go back down again?

Right now I'm just on the music and snow fort part of the phase, but I can feel my mindset changing. I feel much less cynical, much more optimistic and excited about simple things.. and, unfortunately for some people, much more tempted to cut out the parts of my life that I feel are bringing me down.

It definitely feels like it's almost time to move on.. this "moving back" that I'm going through seems a bit out of place, but it's part of the ride.

I can only think of one way to end this post – a video of two baby pandas wrestling. Be amazed by their absolute lack of coordination.

    awww, they are so completely adorable!!!! i love how they wrestle each other! in fact, it reminds me of back in my childhood when my brother and i used to wrestle each other. of course, we were more coordinated then those two pandas, but it sometimes ended with one or both of us injured somehow, but it was all in good fun…good memories 🙂

    omg those are incredibly adorable pandas! They aren't very coordinated, but they can somersault. I'm so impressed with myself that I spelled "somersault" correctly on the first try. I wasn't sure, so I looked it up in the dictionary.
