I learned that we're allowed to have toasters in the dorm. WHAT? So excited. I'm going to be buying one this weekend and using it to make waffles and cinnamon toast. YES. So pumped.
I had my intake appointment at the counseling center today. Going into this semester, I had every intention of not going to the counseling center. I mean, I've been seeing a counselor since three weeks into my sophomore year here at Keene State. Feeling as though I was in a relatively stable and good place, I felt like I could handle things on my own. However, in talking to other people and hearing their observations of me, I come to find out that I should "talk to someone". I'm not really opposed, since I've spent years in therapy.
So when I went in and started talking to the counselor about 'why I was there', I realized that there really is a lot I could work on. I think it might even be more just trying to find closure and work out mentally a lot of the things I've suppressed from the past 6 months or so. I think this will just be healthy to talk it out. Course, the counselor said, "I'm gonna need to think about you for a couple days". HA. I thought that was funny for some reason.
STEVE IS COMING HOME TODAY! As I'm typing this he's in route to the airport. He's coming home today, and then in three days, he's coming to Keene. I feel like it's been forever since I've seen him. Like I said in my last post (or at least I think I did), I'm gonna tackle that boy when he gets here. We were talking on the phone the other night and decided it's probably going to be a very 'violent' reunion, but completely and totally worth it. I smiled while I typed that whole paragraph. I'm such a dork.
So I had to write a short story type of thing for my creative non-fiction class. It had to be creative non-fiction, of course, about us or something we've learned. I started writing, and I ended up writing a piece about the little boy I watched all summer. It came out a lot different and longer than I expected, but I'm pleased with the results. So yay!
Life is good. Life is good.
