it's a beautiful day

today is just one of those days when the weather is perfect and there's good food and i can't seem to stop yawning and i've been productive and lazy at the same time and i kind of just want to sit and stare off into the distance for the rest of eternity. you know the ones?

anyway, i was resubmitting a form for my phd application in person this morning because mason is pernickety and can't seem to understand the concept that if i had in-state tuition for undergrad, and i had in-state tuition for my masters, and i haven't left the state, that i should get in-state tuition for my phd... you know, if i get accepted and everything. so i'm giving in my form and the admissions person says, "are you anisah's sister?" which i am and had to confess to, but it struck me how for most of my life i've been referred to as someone's sister. i'm rarely just me, and i think i might kind of like to be once and a while.

i don't think i'll be able to do much concentrating in class tonight. it feels like i haven't been to class in years because last week's was cancelled and i think i might have forgotten how to go to class and sit and pay attention and learn. if ever there was a day when classes should be cancelled so we could all contemplate the whiteness of the walls, today is it. i think the breeze coming in through the window is messing with my brain.

a part of me really wants to sleep right now. another parts wants to go sit outside and let the sun beat on my back and read the book that for some reason is taking me forever to read. instead, i have to keep reminding myself that i have a class to go to tonight. yawn.

since i can't seem to hold on to a point here, please enjoy this video that i find quite awesome.

    uggs remind me of mrs. smith. yuck! remember her?? creepy old lady.

  2. how could i forget her? mommy was just asking me about her the other day. it was pretty random.

  3. oh no. it's too late for me. i wear them as slippers for night-time 7-11 trips. i wear them for snow days. i wear them for rain storms. i wear them the minute the temperature drops and my dressing-up for outings patience is gone.

  4. i actually have a cheap ugg-like pair of boots that i loved for their warmth, but they have sadly died. i used to be totally against uggs and their rip-offs and wore mine reluctantly the first few times, but they're just so comfortable and warm it's hard.

  5. Hello, my name is Albutol and I own a pair of knock off Uggs.

  6. I never got around to them. Uggcitrin is the funniest thing since the last funniest thing to knock off the funniest thing before it.

  7. tooly: hi, tooly. we're here to work through our problem together.

    Lujain: lol glad you liked it.
