Walked in today. Running 15 minutes late (and when you only have one period to catch up with your favorite teacher, running late is not an option). Ordered. Stressed (I don’t know why, don’t ask). Tired. So much to do (wrap presents, fill out apps, update my calendar, read, cook, clean, drive, pickup duty, laundry, figure out life – school, jobs, life, plans, money, life, happiness, future).
And the lady at the counter. Looks at me. And asks:
Honey, are you okay? You look upset.
Since when did Starbucks people become so considerate? Since when did they care?
I was fine. Just busy. And frazzled. And living without caffeine.
It was good. It was refreshing. It was nice.
Next time, I’m getting a chai tea latte.

How did WeHa lose best holiday shopping destination?
The Center vs. New Haven. Come on! Was this a competition? I say all the Yale kids threw it!
The Center, as locals call it, is a bustle of activity during the day and at night. Between West Hartford Center and Blue Back Square, the newest addition to the town, there are 140 shops and restaurants in a walkable downtown location. Small mom-and-pop shops dot the landscape and large retailers have moved into Blue Back, creating an interesting alternative to the shopping mall.
And this commentator hits it on the head:
West Hartford is CLASS. New Haven-Not so much.
Can’t wait to get back to this classy place. Although us college kids troll around Cosi and Starbucks rather than that steakhouse place in what used to be Town Hall and the expensive old school movie theater next to it!

That would be Prof. Pritchett’s example of a Rwandan accent. I’m pretty sure that during the genocide, no one says “super cool,” but this video would definitely qualify for that saying:

We love you Casey!
Honestly, I’m pretty sad and bummed. I don’t feel like doing it and I get very scared sometimes. But I know I have to. And I know, I have to believe this to get by, that things like this happen for some kind of reason. I’m struggling to truly see what that is right now, but I know it’s out there. I have to believe that this is my job, this is my mission. This journey I am on right now means something big. And that gives me strength to know that this is leading me to something better. That maybe I can inspire people, my family. To know there’s something over this bridge, it gives me huge motivation to keep fighting. I’m just going to keep on fighting until this fucking (excuse my french) thing is done for good. Because that is my mission. To fight back. And I’m going to do it. Cancer REALLY doesn’t know who it’s messing with.
And I’m also really just looking forward to sleeping through this whole thing with my PJ’S on. Wake me up when it’s over!
I really don’t want people to worry about me because i have faith that I’m going to be OK and I want everyone else to think the same thing. I DO NOT want anyone to worry. We’re all going to get through this!
It’s okay to cry, we’re all doing it right now :(
