One Book Meme

Things have been fairly routine around here, nothing too exciting, not too hectic either. I’ve been mostly working on the apartment (still haven’t painted the bathroom) and finishing up some school stuff. It’s quieting down at work though, so that’s… Continue Reading →

Friday Fill-In #114

Holding the elevator was my last random act of kindness. Another place another time (RENT!). Distance doesn’t matter in matters of the heart. Coffee, tea or I’m not waking up. Everyone walks separate paths, and that’s what makes life interesting…. Continue Reading →

Friday Fill-in #107

Enough with the noise, rudeness, and EVERYTHING. Wanting things a certain way causes me to be conflicted. I’ve been craving SmartPop popcorn. Cute cat videos make me laugh. I wish I could go to England next week. Moving has been… Continue Reading →
