i'm at the point where i'm having fun but i'm getting really tired doing it. i think i've mentioned before that last quarter i feel like i had all this adrenaline going from living somewhere new and having new friends that i just didn't really get tired, or at least, it wasn't a big factor in my days. but now, i feel like i'm realizing, "oh yeah, i actually do need sleep." the first clip in this video is deb, kenneth, and jordan sitting on my couch. we just hung out for a while, which i'm learning to appreciate more. i'm realizing i don't always have to be going somewhere to have a good time. this is why i only did a few things off campus this week and basically lounged around for the rest of the time. one of those things was going to capitol hill with kenneth. it was such a blast! we took the bus there tuesday afternoon and it was so foggy and rainy, you could barely see the outline of the space needle through the clouds. our first stop was elliott bay book company, a place i had only heard about in my dreams and while researching places to go in seattle. rows and rows of books and it was so nice to just flip through them. then we hopped across the street to everyday music, a store that sold everything from old cds to vinyl. it made me yearn for my record player. we went to panera for dinner, which was a huge thing for me. its the only panera in seattle and i always though it was such a ways to get to, but it actually isn't, when you count how delicious the food is. after dinner we walked around a little, went into a few stores, and then headed over to stumptown coffee which was another place i've been dying to get to ever since i moved here. it was really nice to go, all the baristas were really cool and we just sat by the window and chatted for a little. kenneth had gotten some credit with uber car service, so he ordered a car and they picked us up right outside and we went back to campus. it was just a really nice evening away. that night some people lit a fire in the lounge fire place and sam, the hall president, put it out sometime around midnight when we all went to sleep. my mother sent me some valentine's decorations for my room in the mail. they're so cute. this week i also returned to milstead for the first time in what seemed like forever! i walked there with henry and we caught up with kenneth and kristie on the way. their vanilla lattes never get old. on saturday i walked through the uw campus on my way to u village. the buildings there always amaze me. i love all of the old architecture. that night i took myself out for tacos because i got closing stuff done at work quicker than i usually do, so i wanted to congratulate myself. finally, kenneth, henry, and i walked up to caffe ladro on sunday night to study. it was so nice to hang out with both of them again, and the coffee was good too!
