I tweeted about it, I wrote it in my calender with big hearts, and I talked to my mom about it for days. Niklaas came to Missoula yesterday!!! This semester is kind of different from last in that I came home about every three to four weeks last semester. As of right now, it's been over a month since I've been home and it'll be two more weeks until I return. Niklaas skipped school and joined his mother to Missoula where he got to visit meee! Unfortunately, he was sick, so the adventuring around Missoula wasn't as extreme as we hoped, but he got to spend a couple hours in the morning with me freezing our butts off outside and a couple hours after my classes in the study lounge. He gave me wonderful music (Adele!) to put on my iPod since I fail at doing so and it was lovely! He was also babysat by my best friends and really got to see my whole life here. I was going to skip every class of mine...but, getting to meet them was pretty valuable in itself since next year, he will no doubt be spending a lot of time around all of us. It was a lovely simple day and just seeing him made me a lovely happy little clam!
It was so funny all day long because people kept saying to me, "Wowweee, dressed up for Niklaas, are you Maggie?" Psh!! If only they knew that I tend to only "dress up" around him when I have to look presentable for a special reason or when we take pictures... other than that, I am a sweats girl! I got this dress from Goodwill back in November and it has been my favorite Missoula Good Will find yet. My stylish friend Maggie (coincidink much??) told me that it was ugly and absolutely not to get it...but I just had that gut feeling that it was cute. And when I tried it on at home, it fit me too perfectly and even she said she was glad I got it! It's vintage and floraly and the collar is strange, but that makes it all the better!
Last week, I was at Target, and while part of my becoming an adult has been to limit my impulse shopping, I found tights for $1.75. And, also despite of my becoming an adult and telling myself I wouldn't buy opaque tights ever again... I did. And these babies will never get a run in them!! Target officially is my new favorite to-go place for tights and these pairs are high on my list of 33 pairs. The pattern is so cool and unique among all I own!
I have this huge problem. You all know about my creepy obsession with Taylor Swift. Well, I am highly and very susceptible to crushing on everything. And I mean, everything. And, in fact, it might be even more than a crush because of the amount I love it. I'm that annoying girl in homeroom at 8AM on a Monday chirping away incessantly that could easily be tossed into the bimbo bin. Yes, I'm that girl. It might be more normal if I developed these crushes on people I knew personally, but it goes beyond that. Inanimate objects are not left out. In fact, they are a huge contributer to my list. And people I see in passing just once? I swoon every time I see someone even remotely adorable (and usually they're the dorks and girls dressed in cute clothes) and obsess over talking to them! Well, this doesn't become a huge problem until something happens, like today, when I'm talking loudly in the foodzoo about my new friend so and so that I sat next to in biology...and I turn around, and realize that during the entire 40 minute dinner, they were right there. The person I was ranting about that I exchanged two words with. Whoops!!! (Might I add that I had this sort of crush on Niklaas after just one plane ride and was dying to become his friend.)

Anyways, I've been very, very lazy these past two days. I didn't do my homework last night. And today I said I was going to write a lab report due next week, polish my paper, do my homework for the third time, and read my textbook....and I did... half of two things. Yikes. So, this means, I need to go to bed right this very minute so that I'll have the energy tomorrow to get things accomplished!
