I am finally back from that oh-so-painfully- long Thanksgiving break. Actually, I got back on Sunday- not the greatest flight btw (the weather was bad). Anyway, so I got off the plane only to be greeted by a really hansome good smelling guy... yes I mean Greg... Anyway, he stood there holding beautiful flowers in his hands with the most amazing smile on his face. He looked as though he hadn't seen me in years! At that moment, I wished time would freeze.

Today, I had a rough day. This is mainly due to the fact that I got my exam grade back, and though I knew I didn't do as well as I should have right after taking the test- I didn't think I'd get the grade that I got today. However, Greg sensed I wasn't in the greatest mood and did his best to cheer me up... and it worked... which doesn't suprise me b/c he always knows how to cheer me up!

Please try not to stress out about Thursday. I know that's easier said than done, but you are one of the most intelligent people I know and YOU WILL DO WELL as long as you believe you can.

Just remember, as Stevie Wonder sang, you are the sunshine of my life... ok I better stop with all the sappiness :).

Wow... 2 Months! That was quick!


Yesterday, Michelle and I celebrated our 2nd month-aversary! We went to TGI Friday's and then to Cold Stone creamery. Then, that evening, when we got back to the dorm, Michelle gave me The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide -Deluxe Edition-! Anyway, I just can't believe it's been 2 months already! It went by so quickly!

I'll get back to the whole 2-month thing in a bit...

Today, I found out that, contrary to what I previously thought, I don't have 2 tests on Thursday. I have, instead, 3 tests on Thursday. Yes, that's right every single one of my classes has a test on Thursday. I think I'm going to die. But, Michelle has agreed to help me study tomorrow, and, as such, has given me hope for doing well on the exams.

Like I said above, I can't believe that it's already been two months. On one hand, it seems like it's been a few days, but on the other hand, I feel like I've known her my whole life! The connection I feel with her and the chemistry we have when cooperating toward a common goal are simply amazing, and she is always there for me when I need her.

Thank you, Michelle, for being exactly who you are, and for helping me through the rough times. I can't wait until the storm is over so we can relax together before the holidays!

I hate the holidays!

To sum it up, I AM SOOOOOOOOOO BORED!!! I didn't think I was gonna feel like this - I mean I'm only gone for the Thanksgiving weekend, but it seems like FOREVER!!! Yesterday, I went to the mall with the girls, and it felt like that stab in the heart that single people get on Valentine's Day. I hated it, everywhere I turn I saw couples holding hands and I just wished that that was Greg and me. But yesterday wasn't all horrible- I got to talk to Greg for a good hour and a half which was VERY comforting :)

I've Got the Thanksgiving Blues

Happy Thanksgiving all! This year I have much to be thankful for, not the least of which is my sweetheart Michelle! Despite my gratitude for all the joys in my life, however, this holiday is not purely a time of joy. This morning, my dear Michelle left for Dallas to visit her dad and his family. While I'm glad she's getting a break from the stresses in her life, I still felt a pang of sadness as I saw her walk through the security checkpoint at the airport. The fact that we will be together again in 3 days offers some comfort, but I begin to wonder about how I'll be affected by the Christmas break, when she returns to Italy to travel Europe with her mother. Dang, I miss her!

I know this post may be somewhat incoherent and I apologize. I pulled an all-nighter last night to work on a paper that's due in a few weeks, and drove Michelle to the airport at around 6:30. I'm now at work, where I'll remain untill noon, and I come back at 4 to work until MIDNIGHT! (As you can imagine, Thanksgiving had a monetary incentive for anyone who wanted to work... but keep it on the down-low! ). :-)

Well, I hope all of you out there have a great Thanksgiving. I'm going to go grab another cup of coffee...

I LOVE YOU SWEETHEART!!! (see photo for example!!!) :-)
Good 'ol prairie dog lovin'!!!

Some color of my own!

Yesterday, Michelle and I went to Santa's Wonderland, a local Christmas light sculpture display that costs $20/car to enter. It was quite a bit of fun, and I'm glad she and I got to have some relaxation time, doing something that involves no brainpower whatsoever.

I've heard it said that the hard times are the true test of a relationship. We had quite a test last night! Next door to Santa's Wonderland is Santa's Town, a place with shops, live music, and hot coacoa! As we approached the gate, I reached for my wallet to pay the $2 entrance fee for the two of us, and I realized my wallet wasn't in my pocket. I figured that since I'd just used it to pay to get into Santa's Wonderland, that I'd left it in car. After growing bored of the music, we decided to go see if Central Park was yet decked out for the season on our way back to the dorm. Upon arriving there, I decided to look for my wallet. We searched the entire car and there was no sign of it. Michelle helped me look high and low, but we had no luck, so we headed all the way back to Santa's Wonderland. It turns out it'd fallen out in the parking lot of Santa's Town, and had been run over. Luckily, all of my important cards were there, and I was actually not missing any of the $0 it had prior to its loss! Anyway, it would've been a very stressful experience had it not been for my angel. Michelle, thank you for being the one that soothes me. I'm always here if you need a shoulder as well!



COMING SOON to the Michelle-Greg Elephant:

A splash of color

Since it's 12:52 in the morning if I say today- I mean yesterday. T'was an interesting day to say the least. I woke up 2 hours later than I originally planned. I wanted to wake up early so that I could study my head off for my bio. test. But then again when in my whole life have I ever stuck to my plans? So, I went to chemistry thinking it was a nice day, and as I was leaving chemistry it started to flood. I began to wonder if this slight change in weather was foreshadowing what the rest of the day would be like. I got back to my room drenched and miserable. All of a sudden, the highlight of my day. A knock on the door which to most people sounds like that sound made at a baseball game where everyone yells CHARGE! But to me it's something more, to me it is the highlight of my day, the one person here that makes me feel that I am more than I really am. Greg. I greeted him at the door as usual, but this time it was different because he suprized me with a bouquet of flowers that he hid behind his back. Oh, and these were no ordinary flowers either. They were colored every color of the rainbow. It was just what I needed to lift my day. Wait, it gets better... attached to the flowers was a poem he wrote to brighten up my day even more. It's a simple poem, but to me those are the best kinds unlike the ones where English teachers make you search for the "hidden meaning" until the poem it self becomes meaningless. The poem Greg wrote to me is quite possibly one of the best poems I have ever read. So anyway, I took the test. And waited for the day to end. As I'm writing this, occasionally I glance up at my rainbow colored flowers and smile.
