9 days. This is my 400th blog post, not counting the draft that I keep meaning to delete. I'm working on a new playlist to celebrate. So, remember how I said I basically am in a constant state of being about to cry? Well, I still am, and it's only getting worse. If you're talking to me and I spontaneously burst into tears, don't take it personally. It's most likely not your fault. I am officially moved in and settled into my new apartment. So far I totally love it. The apartment is really cute with all the paint and my awesome furniture, and living in Des Moines is totally bomb. I moved from Des Moines to a small town near where I live now when I was 11. Even though was 7 or 8 years ago, I kind of feel like I never got used to the whole small town thing. Mom has always said I'm more "urban" than the rest of my family. I'm definitely city girl. Don't get me wrong, riding dirt bikes and 4-wheelers through the backwoods is a fun time, but that's why it's good that my family still lives in good 'ole C-town.* Tonight's agenda consists of cleaning some stuff and maybe going to Plato's Closet to look for some jeans and most likely going to Zanzibar's or Smokey Row so I can use the Internet. Right now I'm typing this on my iPod at work. I haven't been on the Internet outside of my laptop in like, a week. And before that it had been another week. I'm not even going through withdrawal or anything. I just miss Hulu. But honestly, the Internet takes up too much time when oh have it available all the time. There are lots of things to do that are way cooler. I was going to be all serious and talk about meaningful things but I'm not going to. I don't feel like it. Sincerely, Mara
*I am guessing that you thought the C stands for Cambridge. It doesn't. It actually stands for "Crap." HA. Just kidding.
EDIT: I'm at Smokey Row. This place is pretty hoppin'. There's a country singer chick here playing some tunes. She's a character. That's what I've decided. I don't know what she's a character in, but the fact that she is one is certain. Anyway, I'm going to go order something tasty and leave my laptop all vulnerable here at my table. Hasta la pasta.
