Today was awesome, pretty much.
I woke up, ate breakfast, and took a three hour nap. When I woke up, Alison, who has been in St. Augustine for the past couple weeks, was in my front yard. I was generally ecstatic and we spent some time squealing over each other and hugging and catching up on life. I also spent several minutes marveling at her freshly tanned skin and her gorgeous ocean hair. Alison, who has always been gorgeous in a surfer-girl, all-American way, is now this exotic beach goddess, and frankly, I am jealous.
Also, let it be known that Degrassi is on, and I'm writing this during commercial breaks.
After that, I threw on whatever clothes I could find and did something with my hair, and we headed out the door. We stopped at Goodwill and did some thrifting, but ultimately didn't find anything, so we left and met up with Daniella at the Publix where she works.
We got into Daniella's beautiful summer car, and made a road trip to downtown Orlando to visit Ikea! I love Ikea. We spent a good couple of hours looking around at furniture and housewares together, picking out things we liked and taking pictures of them (Daniella and I hope to move into an apartment together next summer, so long as I can find a job...). It was really fun, and it felt really good to be musing about the future with two people I love so much. And it made me realize how much I don't want to be tied down to anything any time soon.
After we finished looking around, we ate at the bistro downstairs. Alison and I both had the fifty cent hot dog, Daniella had pizza and the three of us split a cinnamon bun. It was delicious. I also purchased a tasty Swedish chocolate bar.
Once our bellies were filled, we visited the Millenia Mall... which is pretty much the biggest, most wonderful mall in central Florida. We went into Urban Outfitters and looked all the beautiful, expensive clothes. Millenia also has a GIANT Forever 21, so we spent plenty of time in there. Daniella got a couple shirts, Alison bought some shorts, and I got a ten dollar blue dress that I'm really happy with.
We took Alison back to the Publix where we left her car, and Daniella and I went back to my house, where we planned some room renovations for me, and she helped schedule my appointment to enroll in my classes for the fall, and helped me pick out the courses and times I want. We're both going to the same campus, and both of us picked all of our classes for Mondays and Wednesdays, so somedays we could probably carpool (she has to be there a little earlier than I do though). Also, as long as the schedule and classes I picked aren't full, our lunch breaks will coincide. So even though I'm really excited to meet new people, having a friend already on campus will make the first few days much, much easier.
And Degrassi is now over... I'm little disappointed with tonight's episode. Even though I'm already in love with Eli. I think he's adorable.
Anyway. I should be off to bed soon. I have big, wonderful, amazing plans tomorrow. I'd tell you guys now, but I think I'd rather surprise you tomorrow. Hopefully it all works out and I don't end up stuck at home!
I love you all, very much.
