I’m sick. Flu sick. Why? Because it is one of those weeks, that’s why. Luckily (sort of) it hit today so I was able to have a good weekend filled with studying at a fabulous coffee shop right by the house! Being as I live in the ‘burbs and there’s nothing semi-youthful within a 20 mile radius, this discovery is most delightful. Studying is just funner when it involves Brasilian coffee and good music. The fruitful studying let me have a guilt free fun time at Zainab and Aasem’s fabulous pumpkin carving party. And people, you can call my pumpkin carving techniques retarded all you want, its special, and y’all were simply envious. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Mines the one in the middle. But there were more pumpkins. Many, many more.
