I could start fires with what I feel for you

As much as I wish December looked like this right now... these pictures were taken back in November. Missoula had the prettiest fall I've ever experienced. The orange and yellows looked good on the Missoula historical neighborhoods! It seemed to last forever! I loved waking up and looking out my window every morning for almost three weeks to an orange and yellow world. It stuns me sometimes when I realize what a gorgeous part of the country I get to go to school in. (I'm trying to think of all the things I love about my school so I can rant about them when I speak at my old High School this week about Montana. Note: scenery.)
Niklaas and I actually took these pictures before we went to see Jack's Mannequin! I've been obsessed with this skirt for ages but I never knew what to wear it with. I just happened to feel brave on the day of the JM concert and rummaged around in my roommate's closet until I found this gorgeous top and threw it on. I actually wore this outfit most of the day with wedges but there was no way I was going to walk to dinner and the concert in wedges. Nope. I am and probably never will be a regular wedge/heel wearer. But I wish I were! The concert ended up being amazing and it was a pretty great date night.
I have spent all day in bed and I mean literally, all day. I woke up in the middle of the night last night with such a bad backache that I had to take four ibprofen and lay in bed for what felt like forever until they kicked in. The reason became clear the next morning when the cramps came. Eww. Isn't being a girl just glamorous? I practically had to drag myself into the shower and when I got dressed, I was raking through my laundry bag from school (still haven't done it) and found... Niklaas' Weakerthans shirt! So I've been wearing it all day. There's something about wearing your friendboy's tees that just makes you feel better even when you're in bed with a headache, backache, and mindache. I've missed that kid. I don't know how we went weeks and months all of last year not seeing each other.
I'm writing this on Sunday (night) and by now it's Wednesday, but I really hope by Wednesday I've accomplished some productive things. I need to clean my room thoroughly and bag a lot of my old clothes to go to Goodwill. I also need to clear my desk so I have a productive place to work. Ugh. I can't believe how fast this break is going compared to last year! Then again, I'm getting very antsy to go back to school and finish off sophomore year. Bali is only 4 months away! Eeep!
