In the wise, scruffy, Dwarfish words of Thorin Oakenshield, “‘If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”
I agree with Thorin. Food and cheer are both very important. To have these things, though, you need to know how to cook. Which I cannot do. But I’m learning! Here’s what I’ve found so far.
Our supermarket! I was so excited to lose my roommate in the isles of this place instead of losing my mom at Meijer. #CountryDifferences
Re being unathletic. I think I’ve been tragically scarred from constantly coming in last place in eighth grade cross country. But really, once you get over your fear of athleticism and realize no one cares if you come last, you realize it’s fine.
Re introversion and not having time to myself.
Re getting sick or things going wrong. It happens, and it happened. I got a terrible cold and my suitcase broke, plus other small things. My friends’ washer and drier starting leaking and their room piping broke. Another person lost their favorite water bottle. But it’s inevitable, and you just have to work around it. One you accept that, everything is a little better.
Food and drink! Cheer! Reminds me that it’s time to make some burritos! I’ll talk to you guys later.

It's senior year, my hair is short again, and I'm living my best life. If you want, read my blog and see all the weird stuff I wrote freshman year and all the weird stuff I'm still writing now.
