dear into hymn,

What am I going to blog about when you are out of my life?

Into Hymner Erica Engdahl and I had one last hooh-rah at D-hall today. Grilled cheese Thursdays are always a splendid treat after our Newspaper Production class. Tonight's menu consisted of delicious mac & cheese and twelve, that's right, twelve oatmeal raisin cookies. They were packaged to-go in napkins and a hair tie from my wrist. She claimed to be taking them home to her housemates.*

Also, tonight I found out just how conceited I am. I went over to the "vegan" section of D-hall to check out their pitas. The man behind the counter looked at me and said, "Hello, beautiful!" I was taken aback. "Hi," was all I could think to say.

Great, Brett, I said to myself. Now homeboy thinks you're totally into yourself because you answered to "Hello, beautiful."

Embarassed, I thought I would try to clarify:

"I assume you were talking to me...," I replied with the best intentions. Wow, that's even worse. You assumed he was talking to you. Great. Now he's looking at you like you're the biggest tool on the planet. I quickly walked away sans pita and extremely disappointed with my personality.

Elisa Fernandez, Into Hymner, and study buddy spent the better part of Monday in Carrier library together studying a latte with me (look at that smiley, isn't that cute!). We made that little face-man ourselves. We're notorious for doodling and talking while serious school-work looms over our heads. **

You girls just make life way more fun.

Thanks! Love always,

*Girl code for "going to eat every one of them herself." Not judging, just setting the record straight.

**I got a "C" on the test I was studying for. Worth it.
