So I'm back in Austin and we moved into the new apartment. It's significantly smaller, but I genuinely like it. It's cozy. We bought a second-hand (or third or fourth or fifth, most likely :) brown couch that I like ten times more than our last green one, which was pretty but had staples poking through that would cause scrapes and minor bleeding whenever Boyfriend and I sat down to watch tv.
Random thought: How come they have not yet figured out a way to make pitless cherries? They've got seedless grapes, pitted olives... what gives?
I'm going to look for some pretty art and poetry to put up in a bit, which always cheers me up.
