Staying home… And other updates

I haven’t provided an update on here in a while, so I thought I would share what I have been up to. It has been spent mainly within the walls of my apartment, with girls night after girls night with my cat. However, every once in a while, I get to step outside, breath the fresh air, and see some friendly faces. I appreciate everyone in my little covid bubble that I get to see so very very much. They are the ones who have made this time enjoyable.

Pictures are better than words, so here’s a collection of them from the past month or so.

Halloween! This was a very low-key halloween. He was an astronaut and I was an alien.
Pumpkin carvings!
Even though we are 21, we have bought more sparkling grape juice than alcohol. Very on brand.
Celebrating the election and a 70 degree day in November.
They are absolutely in love with one another and I often feel like a third wheel.
One of the big joys of covid is that I get to hang out with this cute baby from time to time. She absolutely adores her Uncle Armin (However, I feel like that may be in part do the volume of snacks he always has at the ready.) But like have you seen anything cuter?
Neda actually let me hold her! This is a huge step for us. She used to only judgey stare at me from across the room, but now she actually knows who I am? One cool baby.
She is a city cat.

I was able to do my first #sponsored post on instagram for Nisolo shoes! It was super cool and I should probably post about it on here, but y’know. Also I spent thanksgiving with Armin’s family and this is their front yard.
I got this GIANT, ankle length blanket sweatshirt dress for my birthday and now that it’s getting colder, I have been LIVING in it.
I had the lovely opportunity to see a dear friend of mine this weekend. We spent it zooming with our other friends and playing online games and it was a blast.

Going into the holiday season with covid is hard. It is super important to focus on the good moments and to pick out moments when you felt happy and good about yourself, even if that moment was as small as buying sparking grape juice at Marianos.

This week I am heading back to classes after being off for Thanksgiving and getting ready for finals. I know while I am stressed it is going to be essential that I remind myself of all the good times.

For everyone in school, kick butt this finals season, and I’ll see you on the other side.
