tell us a secret
It’s eight PM here. Chicago. Sarah’s room. We literally slept all day. We talked til 5 in the morning, slept, woke up, said goodbye to Ally, slept, woke up, ate leftover deepdish, slept. Sarah is still sleepinggg. This was really really nice. We spent our time either wandering around aimlessly in the freezing Chicago cold or barricaded in Sarah’s triple, trying to make food...
heather gray coat
I have yet to break out a coat. I’ve been wearing sweatshirts, if necessary, but I refuse to succumb to coats just yet. I don’t know. I feel like once I acknowledge that it’s cold, it’ll be like admitting defeat. Plus, I’ll be getting plenty of wear out of them soon, anyway. So why the rush? This weekend would have been so terrible, but then last night we...
Day Ten: One confession.
It’s taken “forever and a day,” but we’re at that day. At least I got it done though! Hurray for the finish line! One confession? I don’t really know what to say. I think I’ve been pretending to be stronger than I am, ever since I got here. Or maybe I’m not pretending anymore…I just can’t expect people to take care of me, and I would never...
Day Nine: Two smileys that describe your life...
I’ve recently been told that my face is literally just a flow of one Asian emoticon to another. ^.^ to -.- back to ^.^ No transitions. And just one of those two. Oh yeah, and apparently I’ve done this once: \ / But that’s only when I’m in fury mode.
into the woods
Last night I had a nightmare that I was whisked away on a broomstick to another college. Wow, even my subconscious thinks this place is too good to be true. Slow down, subconscious. We still haven’t gone through finals yet. Hmmmmmm. I’m so content. I love the things I’m learning. I’ve met amazing people. I love my roommate. It’s pretty here. I’m getting the...
My French class IS Community.
It’s completely ridiculous, none of the students are anything like each other, and our professor is insane (in a good way though). It’s always sort of the highlight of my day. It’s a class of twelve students and we’re all tight with each other (except for this one obnoxious Swiss girl everyone antagonizes). Everyone is SO funny. There’s this really beautiful,...
She paints me blue
Atlanta started raining on me, on me. I’m gonna be an aunt!!!!! (Or whatever you call a mom’s cousin.) My mother is the last of six siblings, each of which have two children. Twelve cousins in total. Now the first of us is having a baby! SOOO exciting!!!!
