That is the face I got to spend the evening with - and what a wonderful one it is. I'm right back where I was 2 months ago. I've fallen right back in love with the two boys (Jaspar and Levi) that I spend the majority of the summer with. That picture is Jaspar, of course, and we're curled up on the couch reading. I hate to sound so old
but what an angel. I had a long day at school, very long. It was just intense and I had a paper to do and I was just ready for a fun (but relaxing) evening. I got way more than I asked for. I was able to get my homework done, and have fun with the boys (because the POWER WAS OUT, and what kids DON'T LOVE THAT?!). I also got to just sit at the kitchen table with Jeb, for a good 2 hours and talk Journalism, and talk people and just talk. He's seriously one of the best people I have met in a long time. That entire family is so wonderful - but Jeb in particular. What an influence he has been on me. He's so supportive. I don't know the last time I met someone who just - BELIEVES IN ME - the way that he does. He's like, inspired by everything I do. It's rare to find someone like that, I think. Anyway! It was just a great end to my day. What am I SAYING?! My day isn't over...in about 15 minutes I get to go pick up my wonderful, handsome, amazing boyfriend from work. What a tough day he's had I'm sure. Since Amy did, and it sparked my thoughts...I wanted to take a second just to document how amazing the man is that I'm dating. Most of you that know Amy and I know that we've got pretty similar lives. I mean - not to a tee - but pretty damn close. We've both been around our share of losers. I feel like I've found someone who really cares. Who really, is genuinely invested in US
. That's a nice feeling to have returned, ya know? Anyway, I won't go on for too long - but I just have to write that I love falling in love with him. I love every second of it. He's amazing and everything I ever wanted. Smart, funny, incredibly handsome and most of all - we just fit. We just work. It just...works. Okay! Done! Sooo...life's gotten pretty busy. I mean, I'm watching the boys after school some days, other days I'm in the library just hanging out doing my thing for however long, and so on. Life's great though, ya know? It's chilly outside, I'm ready to bring out my vast assortment of scarves. The leaves are all changing colors and Mike and I are going to go fully enjoy that this weekend on our drive. No idea where we are going yet, but it's an Autumn drive - and it's going to be fab. I can't explain how excited I am to have a weekend. A real weekend. Where - until Sunday night - I don't have to worry about homework or studying or papers or exams or anything at all. I plan to engulf myself fully
in the weekend experience. I've grown really fond of riding the bus. Don't get me wrong, there are still many benefits to my own transportation (namely...a 1000 sound system...but we won't touch that for now, because I do
have an iPod hahaha). Not even really the BUS in general, just that time I get on the bus. That 20 minutes to school, to clear my head, get ready for my education (dorky, I know). I get to observe people, relax a little bit. Same goes with after school (although that time has now officially been designated my 'talk to Amy on the phone and laugh way too loud on the bus and annoy everyone because I'm "that girl on her sidekick" time'). But you catch my drift. And while we're on the topic, and I'm spewing all kinds of dork all over the place - my bus ROUTE in general is absolutely gorgeous. From downtown - to the waterfront of Lake Union - over the bridge and then onto the most beautiful campus ever. Good stuff. And folks, on that note - it's time to go get my love...so I will write more later. Until then, Health. Wealth. Happiness.
