i'm sort of embarassed that i had to squish two weeks into one video. but, to compensate, there aren't any 8mm videos i guess. i mean, if consistency in these videos is what matters. anyway, i've finally settled in again. i feel like i've got the routine down, and these days i am feeling so legitimately happy. kenneth and i went to u village with the intention of using the groupon i had for menchies. while we did do that, we strolled around and went into multiple furniture stores and just gawked at all of the beautiful things you could put in your house. obviously, we don't have houses or apartments so the process was very sad. laura and i bought another piece of furniture together! we got an ikea floor lamp and we are both very obsessed with it. we also think that it's the reason so many people are constantly in our room now. it's a good thing! there have been so many sunny days recently, and it's really making me realize how californians take their weather for granted. everyone here gets really happy and excited and goes out and explores. i love it. kenneth and i went to the SAM, which is one of my absolute favorite places in seattle. there's an exhibit leaving the museum called "elles" and we went to see it before it left. it was interesting, to say the least. but i enjoyed it. after the museum we went to lowell's, my favorite restaurant in the market. we sat on the third floor just like i did in middle school and it was beautiful! the sun set while we were eating and i couldn't get over it. on sunday the tickets for passion pit came in the mail which was a point of excitement because i'm stoked to get back to going to concerts! i love going to shows here, especially at the smaller venues, and we're seeing passion pit at a theater i've never been to before. i guess another perk to having good guy friends is the fact that their innately capable of fixing things. my bike tire went flat this week so i bought a new tube and kenneth helped me fix it, which means that he did a lot more of the work than i did. valentine's day was nothing special. it's not one of my favorite holidays ever but who cares. kenneth, kristie, and i all went up to upper queen anne to get italian food for lunch. i had chicken fettucini alfredo and it was heavenly. i bought my weekly bouquet of flowers on valentine's day just because. i think it made me feel a bit more sad than usual, but whatever! my valentines were nicolas cage themed which i thought was pretty smart and it made people laugh. i like making things, and breaking out the cardstock and construction paper reminded me of home. yesterday i went to pike by myself and bought some fresh fruit. it is so delicious! i guess it was a good two weeks, and i'm excited for spring quarter for when there are frequent sunny days, or so i'm told.
