Cat friend!

I adopted my friend’s cat! He’s goin on the road and can’t take her with him. Her name is Took, she is 12 years old and she is quite fat. 

Also… I think she likes me ๐Ÿ˜€ she comes up and naps in my bed with me, and sleeps in my closet during the day.


a new move

hey there

I am out sick today with a bit of food poisoning :\ ย My stomach keeps hurting. I hope it goes away before the end of today…

I wanted to let you know: I moved in officially with Simon!!! We are now in the same apartment waking up together every morning and falling asleep every evening. Those are truly the best parts of my day. I don’t have any doubts that this is one of the best decisions I have made since coming to Shanghai ๐Ÿ™‚ ย One of these days you will have to meet him….


Fran!!! If you ever need to feel better I highly recommend getting tipsy and watching soap operas. Right now I’m watchin Jane the virgin (on Netflix) and yellin to myself in the bath tub…

Unrelated but I think I’ve been messin up with Ben :S I’ve been picking fights and blaming him for things… He actually got frustrated with me last night for the first time. I’m not sure if these arguments are coming from something real or if I’m just lonely? Sigh. He’s visiting this weekend–hopefully I can make things better

Hurnh none of that should be dramatic enough to say “I’m messing things up” but I get the feeling we’ve spoiled each other up to this point and my fold too fast when things get tough. Hm maybe that’s something I should bring up tonight

Love you so much~~~

P.s. I might have a patent in my name soon!!


 I went on a beautiful but very difficult hike with my friend Mehdi yesterday. It was an amazing trip…and so exciting to think that this is where I LIVE! Well, a couple hours from where I live. I will show it to you someday โค
