Well, Well, Well...

It looks like it's about to be Thanksgiving!
-And I have just 7 short days until I am 20 years old. I can honestly say that this year has been the most crazy I've had thus far in my life. Many changes of heart, mind, location, and spirit. I'm proud of the person I am, and can't wait to see what my life has coming for me next!
-It snowed here in Portland last night! Big snowflakes for a good hour or so, but it's all gone. Now it's just super cold, everything is frozen and the streets are icy.
-Just finished cleaning my apartment for the arrival of Morgan! Just a few more hours and I am going to see someone who I have known for longer than 6 months! So great, I can't wait.
-Making a huge batch of mac'n cheese tomorrow for the Thanksgiving dinner we're going to on Thursday. I've been hunting for recipes to make.
-Was finally able to skype with my parents, sister, and grandma on Sunday. It just made my whole afternoon to see their faces and hear their laughs. Such a great thing technology has given us!
going to go shower, get all cute, and then get on the train to meet Morgan at the airport. SO EXCITED!

Holy Cow


I will be 20 years old in less than a month
I will be halfway done with school in about a month and a half
I will see my family in a week and a month
I've been living in Portland almost 5 months
what is this!?!?

I've been working lots, trying to make up for a few weeks I wasn't working enough. I think I've got all my bills paid for the month, and a tiny bit to live on until I get paid. Trying my best to budget! I was betty boop for Halloween, but I just worked and didn't really get to any parties or anything. Having a good fall so far though, the rain's been here almost every day. I'm in the market for a good, waterproof warm winter coat. So I think I might go on a quest as soon as I can.

Just living life as usual! I've been talking with two girl friends from work about renting a house in March, I think it'd be really nice to have some space and a yard for a garden. We'd be on the other side of the river, but at that point I might be looking for a job in the food industry so hopefully it'd work out. If not, I could be one of the hundreds of bike commuters in Portland.

Can't wait to see my family in December, missing everyone else. Thanksgiving is coming up! I've got about 5 different orphan Thanksgivings I might be attending, so there are plans a plenty.

Love everyone!
