"Stay Strong"
+ Valentines

February 14, 2014

I begged and pushed and finally Michael came to visit me. c: Shockingly enough, the weather was beautiful (well for February). He brought me delicious chocolates, soccer pants, and my Totoro costume. I’m spoiled.

I dragged him all through the snow covered outdoors about a half an hour walk off campus. It was worth the view though. 

Woaw so handsome so serous.

I had originally hoped he’d get here early enough that we could go during the day, but it was already dark when he got here. It was still beautiful though, perfect walk for Valentine’s day. 

That’s pretty ugly though. After this we met up with my friends at GRC and made these weird Japanese candy sushis. 

We played cards against humanity (aka our favorite game) and the Michael and I went back to my room to watch Frozen.

Over all a perfect Birthday week/ 8 months/ Valentine’s day.

I’m glad that Michael and I are still close enough that we can easily see each other about every 3 weeks. 

<3.

+ Walking

February 1, 2014. I’m back again. 

I signed my lease in full today, for my apartment. After that Lily, Rica, and I went to fantastic thrift. I took some pictures of the art work on the way back home. 

I picked his nose, ha. 

+ My Morning Run

February First, 2014. 

Only did 5 slow miles, it was too muddy. 

+ Maymont

January 20, 2013.

Since we have no class today and it was going to be getting up to 60, my friends and I had been planning to go to Maymont for weeks. It was about a 40 minute walk away, and we thought it was just park. It as like a mini zoo, there were so many cute animals c:

Sadly the bears weren’t out, but we found one anyways.

There were also raptures, eagles, hawks, and owls c;

The scenery was very beautiful, it beat Belle Isle in my eyes. There were Japanese and Italian gardens that we spent a majority of the time walking through. imageI liked this one, because it looked like a little hobbit bridge.image

image

There was also these cows and I touched it; I was kind of scared but the cow seemed to really want me to pet it.

I tried to get Jazer to eat these berries, but he wasn’t about it. 

It was definitely a perfect day to go. Although the walk was long, and were all exhausted, the weather was beautiful. 

+ First Friday

January 18, 2013

Last night my friends and I met up at Chillis to celebrate our first friday all together again. 

image

The Chillis wasn’t that good though, because they put mustard on my burger even though I specifically said no mustard. I just ate it with one bun so I didn’t have to worry about the yuckyness.

image

After this we all headed over to GRC to play an special version of CardsAgainst Humanity.

image

It was fun as usual, a nice way to initiate the new semester, just a night with good friends. I woke up this morning and headed back out into the cold and got some Chickfila with a few friends we ran into the line who had some crazy Friday night stories. Great first friday.

+ Belle Isle

January 12, 2013

I celebrated my first day back on campus by taking a trip to Belle Isle with Jazer, Lily, Rica, and Teddy. Because of a tropical storm that hit us last night, the water was rather rough and covered the areas we usually explored. 

image

image

We found a few trails (that were very muddy) that took us upwards and around. It’s crazy how many cool places are to explore up there. I’d love to take Michael again one day.

image

The higher we got, the more beautiful the views became. image

image

Aren’t my friends so cute? I also found some pretty sweet fungi, check it out yo:

image

We kind of got lost for a pretty long time up there, and stumbled across a lot of spots I definitely need to go back to on a clear day. Perfect way to start a new semester.

January 8th, 2014:

Today I woke up and left my best friend alone in my bed to go climb into bed with Michael. Eventually I made my way back to my house, where we  cooked pancakes for me and Rora. We all napped in my room, I suppose because of the itis, and eventually we went our separate ways. 

We were supposed to meet up with Michael’s family, but when we got the movie it wasn’t operating correctly. At least we got refunds and free passes c: His family is always kind, but it just makes me so tense and nervous. I need to get comfortable with them, to make him happy. 

After spending time with his family and cousin + girlfriend, we returned back to my bed and watched Goodburger. He’s always asking me if I’m okay, if I need anything, he cares so genuinely.

I’m so lucky. Hehe.
