So I think I may have made myself sound a little TOO pitiful last week when I posted about life in Colorado. Sorry if I worried anyone!
While it is hard to be in a new place, I'm doing ok. Here's some of the things I've been up to lately...
Watching movies and Netflix
After years and years, I am finally FINALLY almost caught up on Grey's Anatomy. I've been rewatching Gilmore Girls and I went on a campaign to watch all of the Twilight movies (and am now rereading the books). Though this also sounds a little pathetic, these are things I probably would not do if Pat was around. Pat was never behind on Greys. He hates Gilmore Girls. And he has only seen the first Twilight movie, if you count passing out in my dorm room while I watched it.
My little sister and I have started an Etsy store, and I've been busy making hats for it! We are trying to raise money for a trip with her school to Costa Rica next summer :) Anna makes scarves (modeled by my lovely friend Simone, who is getting MARRIED this weekend!) and so far, I've made hats -- though I want to make more things!
It's been a perfect habit because I can knit them while I watch Netflix :) I messed up the very first one I made, so obviously I kept it, and the weather finally got cold today, so I can definitely attest to its warmth. You can check out our shop by clicking below, if you'd like.
Learning to commute by public transit
When Emily and I were really little, we wanted to ride a bus. A real city bus. So my mom drove us into the nearby city and we parked at the hospital and waited for a bus that would take us to the mall... that never came.
I've never had a great relationship with public transit.
But, here in Colorado, I have been taking the bus to work. It was not an easy transition and it took a few days of a really rough commute -- waiting at the wrong bus stop, taking the bus in the wrong direction... But I've pretty much gotten it figured out and I'm actually really proud of that!
Commuting by bus gives me a ton of time to read. Not to brag too much, but I long ago passed my goal of reading 50 books this year. Actually, as of yesterday, I'm up to 66 books completed! Which makes the highest total since I've been on Goodreads!
You can see all the books I've read this year by adding me on Goodreads.
