ODP 2016 Days 25&26

The last two days have been insanely stressful. Professional presentations in class yesterday, dealing with apartment fiascos today. Also, I am officially sick. Let me tell you, presenting in a blazer is 100% worse when you’re sick. Yesterday was also the day when all hell broke loose in my apartment. Complaints have been bubbling on the surface for about six months now,  but push has come to shove. Today, I wrote a three page, single spaced, email to the corporate offices of all our grievances. Technically, our lease keeps us here until June. I’m hoping corporate will have mercy on our delicate souls and let us move out in December. This is my “I’m about to crush this email writing” face with the corporate business card and stack of maintenance requests. Pray for me, y’all. I visit new apartments on Saturday. Here as a cheerful picker upper is an adorable picture of my favorite baby. He’s the cutest, isn’t he?

ODP 2016 Day 21

Lives were saved today. This morning my absolute favorite coffee shop ever gave me a gagillion buy one get one free coupons to give to all my friends. They’re a fantastic shop with lots of space for studying. They also have delicious drinks and snacks. So friends, let’s have coffee. 

Coffee wasn’t the only thing that saved lives today. Part of my new internship meant giving blood today. Apparently one person giving blood can save up to three lives! The lady at the blood bank told me I was a superhero, so I believe her. Give blood, y’all! You will save lives! There’s free snacks!

It is impossible to take a picture in this apartment without a cat coming in. They’re pretty needy animals. The cuteness makes it worth it though, I think. Very cuddly. Quite adorable. Much sweetness. Get a cat; they’re the best. 

ODP 2016 Day 20

Today, I am tired. Physically tired from limited sleep and lots of exertion. Intellectually tired from exams, quizzes, papers, and work. Emotionally tired from listening to a guest speaker in one of my classes. 

Today, I am thankful. Thankful that I am one day closer to thanksgiving break. Thankful for my job. Thankful for my education. Thankful for coffee with friends. Thankful for dear sweet people who will listen to me rant about being tired. Thankful for the student tech people at school who fixed my computer, which let me finally take my exam and quizzes. Thankful for life, even when life is tiring. 

ODP 2016 Day 19

A word to the wise: don’t leave brand new tights on the floor. If you do, your roommate might accidentally vacuum them up. If they get vacuumed up, they have to be pulled out of the vacuum. Once they’re pulled out, they’ll probably have a run in them. This will potentially make you sad. However, a run in your tights will not negatively affect the number of compliments you receive, because polka dot tights are the cutest thing since floral print. In addition, cats love them.
