Admittedly, we could have gotten there at six in the morning and still have been first. But we got there at eleven and camped. Because we’re cool like that.

Classes went well. My queer politics class has all of fourteen people in it. Fabulous. Also, the teacher is kind of great and I’m really excited for the class, but I don’t know when I’m getting my books. I also went slacking and got about half way across the line. I wish I had done better, but it’s been a month and I was emotionally charged. A first today: screwing...
I'm being rather curmudgeony tonight.
Thinking about things is not good for me right now. I need answers. I also need my room to myself and not have to share it the next two nights with my mother and sister. My mom does not seem to understand that this is my space and she taints it in some way. I’m aware that it’s completely psychosomatic, but it is what it is. Also, J. Got me an ice axe for my birthday. Wonderful. Why...

It’s heavy, but all put together it will keep me warm down to around -30 degrees Fareheit. The best part about it is that the ratings are uber-realistic, so I can confidently count on this. The worst part is that all put together it weighs about eleven pounds. Which is about three times as much as other sleeping bags. But, it will keep me warmer and that is most important. Everyone should...

*EDIT: I also got an ice axe. My life is complete.
The thought just occurred to me to buy books.
So, I’m taking my chances and buying a few from Amazon. Something I haven’t done, so hopefully all goes well and they don’t take forever to get to me. I did not get expedited shipping though, so they probably will. The rest I shall pay through the nose for at the as bookstore. Hmph.

Spring break with the lovely E, pt. 1
We hung out with some of E’s friends from high school on saturday. Quite the disappointing feeling when I realized I couldn’t leave and go to sleep whenever I wanted. Last night J and L came and stayed the night, much fun. They are some of my favorite people ever. Tomorrow the train! Yay!
It's so empty around here. Where you all go?
Also, I really need to clean my room.
I always get so sentimental when leaving for...
I always feel like I won’t be able to come back for some reason. Or no one else will be here when I’m back, Or that Western will change in some irreversible way. But on a brighter side, I’m super excited to go hiking again. It’s been like two weeks.
portionsforfoxes: Whenever I’m somewhere on campus and see someone on tumblr I want to be all “I SEE YOU ON TUMBLR. WHAT UP?!”, but then I don’t because that would be kind of creepy. Then you actually say something and make a new friend who will hike with you. Yay for Tumblr!
So J got a boat. Of course we had to take it out on the Fairhaven pond. Only in Fairhaven though, would people disapprove of your behavior because you are disturbing the ducks natural habitat. Also, the people in the background are our RA’s. Otherwise known as our couple couple.

But seriously, it worked so well. I hope she gets the joke. Also, I aced that test. Then I got some really awesome time in at the rock wall. So much good help. It really doesn’t hurt being cute at times. After, I spent two hours in REI trying on climbing shoes and hiking boots. Is it safe to say that it was like an REI date? Yes, I believe it is. Now, although I’ve been complaining...
How my weekend was rescued and I coincidentally/...
J shows up a day early and asks if he can please spend time with me even if I study. He “missed me terribly” and could he “possibly visit over spring break?” This has been a gushy out of context post from yours truly. Feel free to ignore.
So I guess there are two treehouses in the arb.
I’m a woman on a mission.
Me: I think I'll sleep in tomorrow, I don't have to be to class till ten!
A: Me too! I get to sleep till eleven.
Me: I get to sleep till 8!
A: Umm. Sleep in?

Shit Fairhaven Kids Say, Pt. 1
Me: Well I better go, I have to walk to north campus for class
FK: Oh really? Me too! I'll walk with you.
*we reach AIC West
FK: Okay, well this is my stop! See you!
My entire upper body is sore in places I didn't...
But, it will all be totally worth it when I get good enough to boulder in the arb and then get good enough to climb to places where it would be acceptable to sleep on a port-a-ledge.

The next window of opportunity I see to do something for me (like clean my room and pack for spring break) is next friday. Right before I leave. But I will persevere. I am strong and smart and capable and I don’t really like sleep all that much anyway. Coffee is my friend. So are 20 minute cat naps and being naked. These are the things that perpetuate my existence at the moment. This has...
In esci 101: phone starts ringing loudly.
Everyone looks at the girl where the sound is coming from and she just looks around like nothing is up, upon which she says that it is the person next to her’s (who had just left the room) phone. The music is finally turned off and class is now focused on the professor, when the girl who’s phone went off walks back into the room and every single one of the 300 or so of us laugh at her...
It's dead week once again.
As in “Hannah wanted to crawl in bed and cry after she saw the questions for her epistemology and metaphysics final and realized that she did not know the answer to any of them” and “Hannah wants to hike and run and have a social life but must eat and breath and drink and sleep philosophy if she wants the A grade she so covets in that class” week. Also, I learned today...
In one post I lost my tumblr anonymity.
But I do rather enjoy having a small base of followers now. How are you all?

Yes, I am fully aware of the fact that many people are only hired because they knew the right person or their parents had a friend that needed x help or your family has worked for the same business forever or your grandparents know the owner of the resort you want to work at or your sister worked at the resort that you want to work at so on the basis that she worked well there you must be...
The Obligatory "My Weekend" Post
So I feel as if I should have written this yesterday. In my mind there is a gap in my train of thought that makes me wish I could remember what I felt such an urge to write last night. Aside from that, I’ve once more become a swoony teenager (what’s new?) and every evening I spend with J is better than the last. Saturday morning we got up at five in the morning and hiked up to North...

Things I will never forget in college.
Tonight for instance, J came over (much later than he normally would) and we danced. Now this may not seem unusual, but J does not dance. Ever. So even though it was a simpler more intimate version of dancing and we were somewhat mocking old high school dances, it was still special. Ah, the way he looked at me. I find it difficult to keep my composure around him. Then at some point, we decided...
