You know who you are.

To Whom This Concerns,

I was once head over heels in love with you. Ending things with you was the hardest thing I've ever done. I settle into bed at night, and think how nice it would be to crawl into the big bed and just cuddle. But I know, if I did, it would be like we're back together again. And the next break up would be unfathomably ugly, and we wouldn't be able to walk away friends if we wanted to. Even now, I'm not 100% confident we'll be friends at the end of this. I think, if we can manage it, we'll be friends for life though.

I don't know what you're thinking anymore, or if you'll even read this. I don't know if I want you to read this. I know you want me back, and I'm sorry I don't want you back.

Love,
Me

Scary Weather.



My area of the state had some intense weather last night. I'll post a picture to give you an idea of what I mean. That was taken from a dorm at IU. Yesterday we had 6 or 7 tornado sirens go off in town, and about the 8th siren I was thinking that the weather should make up its' mind. And it did. Rain started pouring in my window and power went out. For the first time ever during a storm, I hauled ass to a safe location.

I ended up sleeping at Danis' apartment so I could charge my cell phone after noticing damage to the roof on an adjacent apartment complex. This is a photo of damage to my apartment complex after the storm. This building is two buildings down from my apartment building. My apartment isn't damaged. We're lucky. That entire building has been moved to other empty apartments. From what I've heard, a tornado touched down around sam's club( 1.5 blocks from my apartment) and went the other direction.

So we're lucky. Times like this remind me that there is something out there keeping watch over us. I don't claim to know what it is- but something is out there. I know that.

Aerials of the damage to my apartment start at 2:17 of More Bloomington aerials.

I have reached the final level of Collegedom.

I am going home on June 9th for a few days and I fully intended on not doing laundry until then(surprise mom!). But I'm running out of clean socks and underwear. I was thinking about my options today. I figured I have 3.

  1. Drop 10 bucks on more socks and underwear. For this option to work, you have to think of socks and underwear as an investment. You can never have too many.
  2. Drop 25 bucks on gas to go home before June 9th and do free laundry. This option also yields free food.
  3. Drop 25 bucks on laundry at the laundromat. This option yields clean laundry and the feeling of independence.
But then it was brought up that I do indeed have a 4th option, I can just wash my socks and underwear. But this option is also more complex than it first seems. I must sort my laundry for that to work. I also must get cash out for this option to work. I spent my last 7 bucks in cash at goodwill today.

But what I'll end up doing doesn't really matter. The point is this thought process must be one of the last steps of Collegedom. Is there any hope for me?

New additions to my life!




I have some new ladies in my life. The are pet rats. Their names are Margo and Ella. Margo is the black and white rat is smaller than Ella. Ella is the larger, brown and white rat. They like to canoodle. I happen to like them both quite a lot.

An update.

I've been putting off posting this. But I feel like my blog readers should know that the boy and I are no longer together. We broke up about a month ago. And that's all I really wanted to say....so... Have a good night.
