Calling 911 in a College Town

Me: “I’ve been stabbed.”
Operator: “Did you even read the syllabus?”

Update and Birthday

So, this is gonna be hella long. I don’t even know where to start. I now live in a co-ed apartment with two girls and one guy. Adela is an Albanian goddess pretty much and she’s just so much fun. Natalia is Columbian and she works so freaking hard. She’s my inspiration. Quinton is a Jewish gamer who just can’t seem to get enough of celebrity news. He’s also a whiz at computers. They’re all great people.

I have my own room and bathroom now and it’s amazing. Just sayin

My birthday has been over for two hours now and I still think nineteen sounds a little old. But, it’s okay. My day was so awesome. It was so simple and still the best birthday I’ve had in years. A friend from church took me to breakfast at a nearby diner that had walls covered with golf posters. Ridiculously enough, these people were trying to give me a birthday shot at eleven in the morning. I was dead ass confused and took a free brownie instead. She and I went to a reptile store and walked around for a bit. I was freaked out the entire time. Then, I got a manicure and a pedicure. Following the mani pedi, I went to the mall and kinda lost myself in Forever 21 and Pink. I had originally planned to go to the movies, but my other friend and I just decided to get frozen yogurt. The icing on the cake was talking to my dad for a whole TWENTY MINUTES! We talked about school, we talked about home, and we talked about the land he left for me and sisters in Haiti right next to a river. Things ended well. No trouble. No sorrow. Just a peaceful day.

The older I get, the more I realize how much I appreciate my own company. I can just lay in bed, read a book, practice playing guitar, or just watch a movie and be completely unbothered. This was way too long. Haha

"1. push yourself to get up before the rest of the world - start with 7am, then 6am, then 5:30am. go to the nearest hill with a big coat and a scarf and watch the sun rise.

2. push yourself to fall asleep earlier - start with 11pm, then 10pm, then 9pm. wake up in the morning feeling re-energized and comfortable.

3. get into the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. fry tomatoes and mushrooms in real butter and garlic, fry an egg, slice up a fresh avocado and squirt way too much lemon on it. sit and eat it and do nothing else.

4. stretch. start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes. roll your head. stretch your fingers. stretch everything.

5. buy a 1L water bottle. start with pushing yourself to drink the whole thing in a day, then try drinking it twice.

6. buy a beautiful diary and a beautiful black pen. write down everything you do, including dinner dates, appointments, assignments, coffees, what you need to do that day. no detail is too small.

7. strip your bed of your sheets and empty your underwear draw into the washing machine. put a massive scoop of scented fabric softener in there and wash. make your bed in full.

8. organise your room. fold all your clothes (and bag what you don’t want), clean your mirror, your laptop, vacuum the floor. light a beautiful candle.

9. have a luxurious shower with your favourite music playing. wash your hair, scrub your body, brush your teeth. lather your whole body in moisturiser, get familiar with the part between your toes, your inner thighs, the back of your neck.

10. push yourself to go for a walk. take your headphones, go to the beach and walk. smile at strangers walking the other way and be surprised how many smile back. bring your dog and observe the dog’s behaviour. realise you can learn from your dog.

11. message old friends with personal jokes. reminisce. suggest a catch up soon, even if you don’t follow through. push yourself to follow through.

13. think long and hard about what interests you. crime? sex? boarding school? long-forgotten romance etiquette? find a book about it and read it. there is a book about literally everything.

14. become the person you would ideally fall in love with. let cars merge into your lane when driving. pay double for parking tickets and leave a second one in the machine. stick your tongue out at babies. compliment people on their cute clothes. challenge yourself to not ridicule anyone for a whole day. then two. then a week. walk with a straight posture. look people in the eye. ask people about their story. talk to acquaintances so they become friends.

15. lie in the sunshine. daydream about the life you would lead if failure wasn’t a thing. open your eyes. take small steps to make it happen for you."
