elephants never forget.

me and aaron have been going through a rough time.

tonight we sort of started to patch things up and whether that's a good thing or a bad thing, it's a step in SOME sort of direction. i think that progress, bad or good, is important because at least you're going somewhere instead of staying stuck in the same place.

i think we've all gone through things that we will never forget. they help us live and grow and learn and it's a good thing to go through rough times. we'll see how things go...

it's the simple things in life like when and where

i absolutely love the people in my life right now.

it's 2:30 in the morning and we all just got home from being at brett's and i don't even mind that i'm up right now. for being a morning person, it's a great feeling.

debate's replaying at 9 tomorrow on cnn and i'm waking everyone's butt up in 6 hours to watch it. it's important to be informed, even after a night of drinking and dancing and baseball and flip cup. seriously, everyone's getting up tomorrow morning. even cassie and brian who have locked their door and threatened to murder me if i woke them up.

i definitely just made up the murder part, so scratch that.

and we're back in the game!

after what felt like a thousand hours of stressing, a week of no internet, and three hours of resnet help, my computer finally works.

thank the lord.

cal poly is better than ever. my roommates are fantastic. our apartment is becoming a little less hospital-like every day.
my bedroom!

our bathroom!
our tiny kitchen with three stools for four roommates ( i don't understand it either...)

classes are... going. i'm a little disappointed in the quality of my teachers, however my english teacher, Mark Roberts, is wonderful. i'm actually looking forward to reading frankenstein and heart of darkness this time around. who knew?

wow week was better than i imagined...

yes... we got in trouble for being native americans. i felt terrible and wrote a note of apology to the native american woman on campus who complained about our group. she was very nice about it.

Opening Rally (imagine this times like, 100000x cooler)

my AMAZING wow group! i love all of them.

i'm happy to be here and that's all that matters.

it's all happening...

today is my last day in riverside before i head back to school and i don't know whether to be happy or sad.

actually, i know that i'm happy. i'm ready to go back to school and get right back into my classes (i love love love classes, even if it's geology). i'm SO ready to see all the girls again and start living with kat, ashley and cassie. i'm just happy that i'm going back to my little college town.

i'm sad that i'm leaving papa hank and the doggies behind.
i don't know if i'm sad that i'm leaving aaron behind.

all in all, going back to slo has been a long time coming and i'm excited to start fresh.

wow week has already started. i've gotten a text from ashley telling me she picked up my wow shirt and i got a phone call from ryan saying he picked up my wow shirt... i'm only supposed to get one...

i wonder if brett and kat picked up one too, that way i have three!

professor sheep

today, summer is officially over. well, maybe not officially... but it's over.

i went to the LA county fair yesterday and it was adorable. i went with page, blair (a cartbarn boy), amanda (blair's girlfriend), and jeff (another cartbarn boy). there were pig races, a funny, old-looking sheep with poufy bangs, caramel apples, and hypnotists! it was fantastic.

so after a hot day at the fair, i woke up this morning and it was cold. i didn't have to turn my fan on last night and i actually had to get under the covers.

fall is here! and that means school. which means going back to san luis obispo. which means freezing my butt off!

i'm so not going to make it in new york.

oh great

i just got done with my interview with Marjorie Geiser, a life coach who owns MEG Enterprises (this really huge, impressive health/wellness company) and she told me this: "if we don't tell the world how great we are, how are they going to know?"

i thought that was clever and cute.

i have nine days until i go back to school. i am absolutely so excited for this year. i saw ashley two nights ago and we stayed up so late talking about all the exciting things that are going to happen this year. we also talked about how san luis obispo is such a special place. it's kind of like narnia. once you drive past that bridge that connects to an island, it's like you're in this little pocket on earth that is so different and so unique from every other place in the world. this year is going to be amazing.

i have four days to write three 500-word articles for Inland Empire Magazine (exciting, i know!). and yes, i get a byline for these three pieces. WOOT.

i have two days til i work my last sunday at the golf course. mr. crusoe comes in on sundays and he is so generous and so nice. by far my favorite customer.

i have one minute until i go eat some chicken fingers with ketchup.
