Today was a really, really good day.

And a really great way to start the semester.

I just...feel really good about everything right now.

So I flew into SLC on Tuesday, signed a contract with Fluer de Lis, moved in Wednesday, and here I am. It's a little pricey, but everything is way worth it. Also, I am currently eating a delicious hummus sandwich. Be jealous.

I'm still really looking forward to class starting. I'm also doing some pretty cool stuff next week. I signed up to take the Rosarch Inkblot Test for a psychology professor, and I'm getting $10 for doing it. I'm also interviewing for a position as a research assistant for something that I'm still not entirely sure about. Some professor's secretary called me and said another student reccomended me for the position, but didn't give a lot of information. If it's paid, I'll have to cut back on my hours TAing. We'll see.

I don't have a whole lot to do this weekend. Already bought my books and school supplies. The only thing I'm doing is making a gift for Tim and Cait's baby shower on Sunday. Speaking of which, I'm going to this adorable fabric shop on Freedom and 5th. Seriously, go there.

Packing: haiku version

Leaving for Provo,
Filling up three suitcases,
Five more syllables.

What I've been listening to

I've been listening to a lot of really mellow, feel-good music lately.

Albums I've been into:
Joshua Radin - Simple Times
Jack Johnson- In Between Dreams
Ingrid Michaelson- Be Okay

I definitely recommend adding these to your itunes collection.

17 days

Ever since I started first grade, I've always gotten really excited as the summer comes to a close and school approaches. I think most kids did up until, I don't know, high school. But for some reason, I still get unreasonably excited for school to start. Perhaps it's because I'm ready to be immersed in learning again? Perhaps it's because I'm a little bored and need more to do? Perhaps it's because buying school supplies is more interesting to me than buying anything else? Perhaps it's because I've bought a ton of cute clothes this summer and am looking forward to wearing something other than a Purple Cow shirt everyday?

E) All of the above.

Also, I spent a good part of yesterday cleaning out my closet.



It might not seem like that huge of a difference, but I ended up with four bags of trash, two bags of recyclables, and two bags for Goodwill.

Purple Cow: haiku version

I smell like a french fry;
Shirt stained with purple ice cream;
Wait, did she want Coke?

My life: haiku version

Heart in Ireland;
In between identities;
Has class started yet?

I can't fall asleep...

...because I keep thinking of what I'm going to wear on the first day of class.

Pathetic, right?

These jeans
, this shirt (in black), this shirt (underneath, in white), these shoes (in french blue [I got them on sale last week]), and this scarf (which I just bought on sale with a 30% off coupon).

Man, I seriously need to do more important things with my life.
