  • thoughts
    • Been stress-eating a lot. Miss my KRYW friends. I love waking up to their messages in the morning.
    • This year's summer reading sucks. Or maybe I just spoiled myself by reading fifty bajillion books that are a million times better.
    • I love writing letters. I actually threatened to ban myself from writing them unless I finished my homework in a timely manner.
    • I've surpassed my monthly crying quota. Fizzlenabbits.
    • Going to see two concerts this fall -- Beirut and Stars! SO EXCITED.
    • Listening to The Head and the Heart only reminds me of my Kenyon family. I feel like crying again after today's (8/16/12) oovoo date.
    • School is okay. Classes are fun, teachers are great. Not sure what I think about journalism yet. Only thing is I wish my Kenyon buds were here with me. Would make the days a little less sucky. Need to pluck up the courage to be super nerdy with Ms. Kelley. She's so cool.
  • discoveries
    • I'm a really bad driver.

user picture dorothy: ...I love brie! (The cheese, right?) aug 8 2012
user picture serena: Yes, brie! I sadly finished it all yesterday. :( But it's okay, I find that I'm really loving these little Triscuit cracker things.
user picture dorothy: I've never tried those! They look delicious though. I think I used to eat brie with Jacobs' cream crackers.. aug 9 2012
