Curling into you.

When the alarm goes off in the morning, and the only sounds I can make are groans of great reluctance to get up, I just want to curl into you.

Because you are warm, and because you are soft.

Because I can scent the you-ness from your shirt, and it is intoxicating.

Because your hand on my back gives me comfort, and your fingers running through my hair make me… make me… make me go like this :3

But mostly just because –and I guess I should tell this to your face– just because you are so, so damn nice to curl into.


Yesterday started like any other day.

Except, it wasn’t like any other day. It was May 1st, 2012. In American date format, it was 5.01.12. Grinnell’s zip code is 50112.

Yesterday, was Grinnell Day! (Whatever that is.)

For most people in Grinnell (townspeople, professors, students, staff), yesterday started off normally; by 5:45pm, however, about 1200 people made Grinnell College history — by breaking a Guinness World Record!

We broke the record for the most number of frisbees thrown simultaneously!

(Clickable, click it!)

I had just gotten out of dance rehearsal before that, and because I’d been tired all day, I screwed up an unusual amount of moves, which put me in a bad sort of mood. But then went to this, there was music, there was sun, there were friends, and there were frisbees. The ingredients you need to put you in a laughy, skippy, sing-song kind of mood.

And if that’s not enough, being able to say you were part of an effort that successfully broke a world record counts for something, right?

Got a free red Grinnell Day frisbee, too, and nothing beats getting free stuff.



Conversation overheard while waiting in line to get food at the school café. Early Friday morning.

Line is moving super slow.

“So are you in a hurry?”

“Yeah, for philosophy class.”

“Oh you’re fine, I’m sure Socrates was late to class once in a while.”

“Hahah, yeah.”

*Fakes a deep voice*
” ‘Hey Socrates, why are you late!’
?!’ “

“………… uh?”

“Socratic method!”

Hahahahah pure WIN!


Around this time every semester, I’d go on YouTube and look for videos of cute kids, so that I could watch and re-watch them over finals week whenever I need a break from studying.

I don’t know why I do it though. I mean, watching kid-videos when you’re neck-deep in schoolwork only ends up reminding you what a comparatively undesirable/stressful “adult” life you have.


Stress-relief video of Fall ‘09:

So cute kan!

At first I thought it was kind of creepy, the faces he made. Then I realized he just had a nose itch and didn’t want to interrupt his playing.

I think by the time Friday rolls along (OMG cannot wait!), I will have watched this so many times that I can memorize his facial expressions.

Last semester, I watched the video below so many times I could actually sing along. (Actually, you don’t have to watch it. Even though at the time I found it humongously funny / adorable, it is actually less amusing than I thought it to be. I know so because none of my friends were enthusiastic when watching it, and because watching it again now I’m like, whattheheck why did I find this so entertaining?!)
