Nothing to terribly exciting happening around here these days. I applied this week to Urban Outfitters after having a mini meltdown with Heather. It's hard living so far way from your friends and family and I've had a hard time meeting new people. I'm grateful for the few friendships I have but when they are busy I sometimes feel lonely. She suggest getting a weekend retail job to meet people and make a little extra cash so that's exactly what I'm trying to do. I realize in this economy it's not going to be the easiest but we'll try.

I also had a random hang out session today with a boy from my computer class. He came up to me after class and asked if I could help him. I sat with him for like 20 minutes getting some files in order and then he asked if I wanted to hang out after school. I said sure, why not. We went and grabbed some coffee's, took a little walk and then went back to the college to play frisbee. So random! It was fun, something to shake up the usual routine week.

She came to the daycare nearly the exact same day I started working. She was adorable and all the teachers were in love, for all of about 15 minutes. That's when she started screaming. Nobody had the time,energy or patience to try and calm her down so I took on that task. What a task it was and thus our relationship began.

Her parents went up to Betsy one day asking if she was available to babysit, she said she would look at her calendar and let them know. She already had something scheduled that day so I offered to watch her. The tattoos might have freaked them out at first but they agreed.

I've been babysitting her for about 2 years now and I can't believe the time is going that fast. Her family and I have become good friends and talk regularly. When I was going through the break up with Bob the mom let me have a good cry before they left and even offered for me to stay there if I needed to. It's nice to have people whom act like my adopted family since mine is so far away. I babysat her last Saturday and she is growing up to be such a big girl. It was surreal, she seemed like a little 12 year old walking around. I can't wait to see what their new baby is going to be and hopefully the fun will just continue.

Last night Heather and I decided to throw a cupcake party, as part of our 'Anti-Valentine's Day' protest.

We had so many cupcakes it was insane. All I ate for 24 hours was cupcakes, way to go eating healthy! We talked, ate and watched youtube videos of insane things. It started out as watching Barnatt brother videos and progressed into weird, gross and things I've never even thought about. I'd say the night was a success.

This whole eating healthy thing is HARD. I'm really trying though and today I did really well. This weekend, eh, not so much. I blame it on my period. I feel like I could eat an elephant and not be satisfied.

Today was a wonderful day in the state of Massachusetts. It hit 50 degrees. My body did a little happy dance called a 4 mile way through the streets of Boston. It was windy, a little drizzly but dammit, it was 50 degrees. I took my camera with me but wasn't inspired to take a single picture. It's a little ugly right now, I think that's why.

After I got home I started planning Nicole's Baby Shower. I'm getting really excited, I think it is going to turn out really cute. This evening I dragged Conor to go see Coraline with me. We had some awesome 3d glasses which they just happened to charge an extra $2.50 a ticket for. The movie was really amazing. A little creepy and dark, just what I like.
