Buffalo principles.

I want a sewing machine, really, really, really, REALLY bad. Once financial aid rolls around I'll get one and then I can quit bitching about how I really, really, really, REALLY want one bad.

Joey and I have been living in Austin for a year now and couldn't be happier. I kind of wish I could think of something that I'm unhappy about so that I can rant about it but nothing really comes to mind. That's a good thing, right? The fact that I have nothing to complain about? I'll complain about how shitty the HEB by our house is. We live super close to everything: gas, slushees, pizza, groceries, hobby lobby, movies, park, the DMV, dollar tree, beer. Anything we need is within less than a 5 minute drive, it's amazing. I love living up north even if it does take us 10 minutes to get downtown. It's so green, clean, and full of white rich people. Well anyways, the HEB right across the expressway from us sucks balls. It's like Big 8, only for white people, which makes it worse than the Big 8's in El Paso. The aisles are so awkwardly arranged that it makes stealing from there 12 times more annoying. I rather drive 5 minutes to the HEB by Nick's house than the one minute it takes me to get to the one by our place. I like to call it "Nick's HEB", it helps give me a sense of direction. If anything is within 2 miles of Nick's apartment I just like to assume that it's his.

I work at this awesome preschool, the kids drive me insane. In a good way though, in the best way possible. They get SO ridiculously happy when I get there in the mornings and it feels so good knowing that I mean the world to them. Dayana could properly pronounce my name when she first started . . . as of the last 3 weeks she's started calling me "Ms. Shmelli". I tried correcting her every time she called me "Ms. Shmelli" for a day but it didn't fix anything. The other kids haven't caught on to it yet and I'm hoping that they don't anytime soon. In August they will moving up to the Pre-K class and I'm going to miss them so damn much. Will asked me if I was going to move up with them and I told him I wasn't, but that I would still pass by their window and say hi everyday day. He started bawling and I felt like shit haha. I didn't laugh at the time, because I felt so shitty, but now it feels like it's ok to laugh. Pablo found a cigarette butt and a straw and came up to me and said, "Ms. Yaneli!! Someone has been smoking and drinking in our playground!!!" Made my fucking year hahaha.

Joel got started on my dinosaur half sleeve on Thursday! It's fucking GLORIOUS. Glorious, I say!

I'm so damn happy, that's the best way I can put it. I miss my family and some friends back home but I don't think I'll be returning anytime soon. :]
