Shann keeps bringing up my spelling mistake and now I must keep reminding her of cheesy stuffed pizza crust as punishment because she’s hungry.
Today has honestly been when of the best days I’ve had in a long time, and it’s because I’m finally starting to make things happen with my life.
One of my best friends, Lisa, and I went up to Gainesville to meet up with the real estate agent to look at condos. So we looked at 1 flat, and two town homes. Lisa and I decided to go with the flat, and we decided that we were going to buy that condo and upgrade the countertops and kitchen appliances. We’re also going to get the walls repainted, and we’re having all new wood flooring and brand new carpet put in.
I’m really excited about this because we’re fully upgrading our future home, and my mom is going to own the condo, which means when Lisa and I move out, my mom could sell it at a better value and make money back because
- the condo has been upgraded to the fullest level
- the location of these condos are PRIME
I met up with a friend and we had lunch, and then Lisa, her boyfriend, and I went to get desert, and then we went to the mall there, and then we went to a boba place to get drinks. We explored the community, which essentially made me love the place even more because Gainesville is literally so student orientated.
I’m just excited for a change in scenery, and not only is Gainesville only about 2 hours away from home, it’s about 5 hours away from Atlanta, Georgia, which means I could just drive up there on the weekends if I wanted to, or go visit Shann (destrucshann) more often now. 5 hours is so much more manageable to drive than the 7.5 hours I would have to drive from Tampa to Atlanta.
Also, what made this day even better was the fact that him and I talked today. We had a normal conversation and it was even kind of light hearted. We talked about me getting a new place to live within the next few months, and how we were closer to each other. We talked about his vacation to Panama City in the upcoming weeks, and I even made fun of him for something, which he laughed at. Also, he agreed to do me a favor, which I thought was sweet. I don’t know. I just like that we’re able to talk in a civilized manner and even have these type of conversations. I can’t express how important and meaningful that is to me.
Also, Lisa and I had long heart to heart conversations in the car to and from Gainesville and it’s just wonderful. What did I do to be blessed with such a wonderful day.
Just saw your username and it’s 1AM. I should probably go to sleep before I get angry and upset with you.
So tomorrow, I’m driving up to Gainesville and meeting with a real estate agent who is going to show me condos.
I’m excited because, well, condos.
Haha, I’m sorry! I actually didn’t describe anything from the movie, except that it’s about a Japanese engineer during WW2. I only provided a vague interpretation.
I hope you still watch it!

Haha, thank you. I actually get told this from time to time. I guess loving good literature when I was in elementary school paid off.
I just got home from watching The Wind Rises by Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli, and I loved it.
The film itself is filled with a lot of silence, and there isn’t much action, but it’s a nice tribute to the innocent dreams of a man during the WWII era in Japan.
It has a sober ending, where a dream is realized in the same place that another one dies.
I suggest you watch this if you have the patience. It’s the kind of film that at first glance, doesn’t seem like it would so much as cause a ripple in the ocean, however, in hindsight, it resonates loudly.
(Not to mention, Joseph Gordon Levitt and John Krasinki are both voice actors in the english version of this film).
Funny because I’m one of the most feared people here, and destrucshann still views me as flowery. LOL.
The boy usually prevents his sister if he knew that she is in love.
Because she knows the meaning of love, and he knows the intentions of men.
