Jacob Adler. And all of your snarky-ness. You should call me back sometime so I can tell you everything that is going on here. And yes, my ass looks pretty good now.

Every time I see a nice looking boy here on campus, I suddenly find myself repeating in my head, over and over, “Please don’t be gay, please don’t be gay, please don’t be gay.”
My friend Nancy is going to the farmer’s market tomorrow, and I’m tempted to go with her to get some fresh fruit for my room. I’m not eating nearly enough fresh fruit :( But I really hope the weather is crappy tomorrow so I can be fully committed to staying inside and doing homework. Because if it’s sunny and beautiful again, I’m not going to get anything done. ...
Workout at gym (at 6:00 A.M.) with Steph Job Interview at 9:00 Girls Soccer Game Forrest Gump/Cupcake Royale 3:30 CALL SARA!!! I have a lot of important things to do today.
I need to motivate motivate motivate myself. And not think about all the things I want to do. I should think about the things I need to do. WHICH IS HOMEWORK.
Holy shit. Thai food is the best. Samantha and I walked all the way up Madison on Capitol Hill to Trader Joes with our new friends Ellen and Allie. We bought some frozen food for our rooms, and a variety of fresh fruit. The three of them went back to campus because they had meetings about some sort of schedule change, but I had an hour until I had to be somewhere, so I decided to walk around by...
SANTIAGO IS ALIVE AND WELL. Well, I don’t know about the “well” part, he looks a bit shaken. But I bought two bottles of Aquafina from the vending machine in the hotel I’m staying at, and filled up his bowl with it. I poured him from that awful plastic bag that he’s been in all day, and put all three of his bamboo sprigs in. And then I fed him. He looks kind of...
Fuck SouthWest Airlines
My 9:20 flight to Seattle was delayed. By TWO HOURS. So then, they decide to put us on a flight to Reno, Nevada, make us wait 3 hours, and then come to Seattle. It’s 7:40 P.M. in Seattle. They lost our luggage. Santiago is in that luggage. Oh my GOD. If ANYTHING HAPPENS TO THAT FISH, I WILL BRING SOUTHWEST AIRLINES TO ITS KNEES.
Oh the adventure.
I have a lot of faith in myself. I have faith that once it matters, I can prioritize and produce and be a surprisingly functional human being. I have been through a lot. I have been shaped into someone who is both sensitive and durable. And by God, this is going to push me. But hey, I have been pushed before. And I caved a few times. I would like to think that is because I was being prepared...
The Pacific Northwest
Time to pack up the room!
Updates updates, and more updates to come.
* I leave for College a week from today. Holy Shit. * I’m getting a tattoo with my sister next week. Perhaps two, I’m not sure yet. *My mom and I just got into a bicker battle. I might regret saying this in the future (and by “I might,” I mean “I will.”) But I can’t wait to get out of this house just to get away from her for a while. * I had to say...
