Pizza, Gym-time, and cozy clothes.

These last two days were interesting. …. I had a fun day in Seattle yesterday and ate deliciously… I also found The Walking Dead graphic novel and am HOOKED!! Also, I”m broke til next month probably.

[June 18th, 2011 @ 8:45 Washington Time] We are now on the place. My handwriting is good for now. We will see how it fares over time 🙂 Could be a game we play; I am not good without my lines. I realize now why a journal is so important to me. It helps me feel like I am talking/sharing with someone. Plus, I hope that someone can read my journal after the trip; you will get the nitty-gritty of…
