My walk to school today. I decided to take the scenic route to class this morning. It was cold, but when everything is frosty and the sun is shining it feels like the landscape transforms into a lacy magical wonderland. The most mundane things are changed. It's like the whole landscape is wearing one of those fancy ruffled tuxedo shirts. Vintage Formal!
I've been putting off reading the second chapter in my geography class because the used textbook I bought online is literally too gross to use without gloves. Not even joking. The description said the book was in GOOD condition. This means to me, it's been written in and highlighted, the corners are all worn, there may be folds in the cover or back cover, and the white of the edges of the pages is now a pale gray. What I got was a book with liquid damage from the back cover to the last pages of the last chapter. The ink from the back cover has colored a number of pages. I say liquid rather than water, because water does not smell like pee. The book sat in urine of some sort. There are several pages stuck together with bits of brown black chunky bits, possible mouse poop. I got a refund from the eBay seller, and ordered another from a different seller. I just got it in the mail. Yay! It smells like long hours of tedious homework, with a slight scent of desire for a nap.
But my morning walk was lovely. #monday#sunshine#usedtextbook#homework#lovewashington
So I took this picture and can’t believe how amazing it turned out. Gorgeous.

Today I feel very bad. I’ve been sick for the past week (kind of since I left for this trip) and haven’t been able to rest the way I needed to. I’ve been stressed about my health and driving and moving and all the stuff, and today I woke up with menstrual cramps (lol menstrual I mean come on I got my period and it sucks), whatever lung and cough stuff that’s been haunting me, and with a new sore neck that won’t let me turn my head properly. Lucky for me it’s snowing heavy in the passes so I used that as an excuse to stay in this cheap hotel another night and sleep/rest/take medicine today. Have you ever moved yourself across the country with a car full of everything you own? By yourself? It’s hard. I’ve done it more than a few times and it really doesn’t get easier. I’m fucking ready to be in Seattle, people. Like, really ready. And to just, you know, have a life that doesn’t involve life-altering decisions every week (although let’s not get into that too deeply because every decision blah blah blah). So, tomorrow I drive nine and a half hours to Seattle and wow it will feel some kind of way to arrive there! I have no idea what kind of way. But hopefully I’ll feel marginally better in my body than I do this morning...
