Things are very good again.
Yesterday a bunch of people from my class threw me a surprise brunch because it was near my half-birthday, and I never did anything for my actual birthday but kept saying I wanted to. It was so cute and everyone worked so hard and I couldn't help but feel guilty that people didn't want to spend their afternoon there and that it was too much work, but then I relaxed some and forgave myself for being. It was just so sweet :)
Afterwards, Daniel, Shelby, Melanie, Bobby and I went to Melanie's and watched the Michigan vs. Ohio State game which was disappointing. I borrowed sweats and sneakers from Melanie and we went to the park and the five of us played a game of basketball, then sat on the blacktop as it got dark. We went out to dinner together and I love junior bonding but Shelby is so clearly eating disordered and it's breaking my heart to be with her.
Now I'm doing homework and I actually have a good thesis and can back it up with evidence from every passage for this English paper and I LOVE it when I'm prepared. All the sun is coming into the house and I have time to get this done and go to the concert tonight.
Two day week, then a day off, then Thanksgiving, which is my favorite holiday. I love the colors and the smells and I love fall.
I've been listening to lots of Rufus and I get my lisence in two weeks so I'll get to turn on the heat and roll down the windows at the same time and listen while I drive and maybe I'll go through Rock Creek Park. I love D.C.
