about a little more than a week ago I planted some seeds my sister gave me. today the look like this:
napo and I spent a few minutes outside exploring and admiring that beautiful baby cilantro that will someday be in both our bellies. once the weather gets colder I’ll move the plants inside to be able to (hopefully) have them year-round.
· a test:
today I took my anatomy lab test while looking at stinky cats’ muscles and trying to figure out which ones where which. nothing like walking out of that test feeling like a champ because I knew all of them and because I was about to eat tacos with my boyfriend and his band. and I did and they were delicious.
· a hurricane:
let me start by saying, happy national doctors’ day to all physicians in mexico! I actually know two people who are working towards their medical degree right now over there. at this moment both of them– one being my beloved cousin– plus another high school friend, are in one of the states hurricane Patricia hit. the three of them report they’re safe, just that there is lots of rain. it is so scary how massive and strong that hurricane is. I was watching news channels from mexico and they all said that this hurricane could break the scale used to measure hurricanes, since the scale goes up to 5 but this one could we considered a 7. it has now been downgraded to 4, but it’s good to be safe and alert for anything. biggest hurrinane in history, wow.
Oh, Friday. Thank you for being a challenging, yet interesting day; fun too, except for the whole 400-200 km per hour hurricane.
My dear reader, I hope you have a very nice day and weekend! Make sure you don’t get soaked if you catch some rain too. And if you can, send your love and prayers to the people in mexico.
well, happy day for some. it was a little overwhelming getting to school today with this rain. I don’t know how my little car got through it all but it did. Good boy.
I wasn’t excited for this friday – or lately any friday, since fridays now I mean I have to spend three hours dissecting a stinky cat for my anatomy class. but waking up to pouring rain and witnessing my sisters attempting to get into my dad’s car without getting wet on their way to school changed my perspective for today. even if mom and I almost got stuck in a river and even if I got late to class, today is a good day. so friends, happy friday!
good, happy things that happened this week:
I’m an aunt!
I developed three roles of film.
I cut David’s hair.
My boyfriend, my sister, and I gave Alexander the hedgehog, Max the pug, and Napo and Linda the guinea pigs baths.
I saw my friend’s baby bump in her baby shower and ate tacos.
I submitted an application to study abroad during the winter and I got accepted!
almost a month ago I received on the mail a pentax film camera from the 70s that david got for me. it is so so pretty. the moment I pulled it out the box I fell in love with it. i couldn’t stop thanking david enough.
here are some photos I took with it that I wanted to share with you guys:)
aren’t my models the best? I love it when I capture pictures of David laughing.
I still need to play with my camera a little bit more, and maybe even try a different photo lab, but overall I was happy with the results. bothering grumpy alexander and telling him not to eat my shoe is always fun.
photos taken in our univesity, david’s house, and my front yard with a Pentax MX using Fujifilm Superia X-TRA 400 35mm film.
