I have lost count of the days, but time is passing quickly.

I have wifi! That’s the first piece of news I should share. It functions exactly as it should and is the highest package they offer, which means I can GO WILD. Watch all the T.V. shows illegally, waste hours upon hours on Tumblr, maybe do my homework once school actually starts.

Also, in news of things coming to my apartment in a timely manner, I got my bed today. No more blow up cot mattress! Maybe I’ll sleep in past 8AM one of these days. Fingers freaking crossed. Along with some bed came some kitchen gear my Mom ordered for me, not that I actually cook, but maybe I’ll try now that I have tupperware to store leftovers in. 

I still have a lot I need before this tiny apartment feels like home, but things are getting organized into NEED/WANT categories. With some cross-over when I get impatient. 

My job is going pretty well I’d say. More walking, I took the girls on a 3+ mile trip to the library, Joann’s and Starbucks last Friday and walked the whole thing with one in a stroller and one in a backpack. Going wasn’t too bad as it was downhill, coming back was definitely more of a struggle. And today I took little Hannah on a “short” 2 mile walk to an art supply store just to compare prices. Again, baby in a backpack. It’s cute and I definitely hope I come home at Christmas with some toned muscles. Like, toned legs would be nice. Do you hear that God, it’s me Nicole, wishing for some toned legs. 

I figured out the bus system and got an ORCA card last week which was a pretty big plus and finally got to experience some of the Seattle rain everyone and their Uncle warned me about. Nothing too bad so far. And I went to an SU Alumni event Saturday with Molly. I was by far the youngest person there, but it was nice to meet some fellow Pirates. The group president even extended a Thanksgiving invite, which was sweet. It’s nice to have options. #besouthwestern, right?

Nothing else has happened, just more of the routine, school starts next week and then hopefully I’ll actually have something interested to say. 

Stay tuned!

"I am trying to see things in perspective. My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot have this, because chocolate makes dogs very sick. My dog does not understand this. She pouts and wraps herself around my leg like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in, she eventually gives up and lays in the corner, under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the universe has my best interest in mind like I have my dog’s. When I want something with my whole being, and the universe withholds it from me, I hope the universe thinks to herself: "Silly girl. She thinks this is what she wants, but she does not understand how it will hurt."

when boys have sleepovers do they sleep in the same bed like girls do or do the rules of no homo include sharing beds

girls always share beds. and covers and clothes and food and personal space. sometimes even bathrooms

Girls share everything.

#girls dont believe in no homo #all da homo #dont give a fuck.
