it’s all downhill from here

Yesterday I got a 3.9 on a Lit Crit paper.

Which will probably be the peak of my semester. Both emotionally and academically.

The winning paper was…

Small Stories and the Greater Whole:

Interpreting Plot in The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

So we celebrated.

I went to Athan’s European Bakery and bought a Caramello pastry. It was probably the best thing I’ve ever eaten.


And Lance got a haircut and pretended to play the saxophone.


And then I went to bed at 10:30 p.m. Just like I do every night.

  1. right now i want nothing in the whole world except THAT pastry.

    jackson needs a good pastry shop. or maybe it doesn’t, as ms. jillian probably wouldn’t approve. HA!

    • It was so good. It wasn’t even a pastry proper. Sponge cake with a little liqueur on the bottom, lots of caramel mousse, topped with meringue oh my god it was worth the 4.95

  2. 1) Love your blog! It’s so cute!
    2) Congrats on the 3.9! I was pretty pumped about my 3.6. I don’t think Cathie likes my writing.
    3) To answer a question in your previous post, I’m taking two classes and working two jobs. It sucks.

    • 1) Why thank you!! Yours looks pretty nice too, especially since we seem to only talk about two of the most important things in life: books and food
      2) Thank you again! Although, it was a fluke, I’m afraid. I have since been returned to more average numbers. Stupid Reader Response…
      3) I would never wish 2 jobs upon anyone. You are hardcore! I’m doing 20 hrs/week at a low stress position and that’s almost too much for me.
