May this bring you a little of the pleasure it has brought me. Love, D 09/18/55 I found this in a book at the Salvation Army, The Prophet. Slanted cursive handwriting. It makes me wonder who D was, who it was for. It’s from so long ago and seeing as it has ended up at the Salvation Army, it must have exchanged so many hands. It gives that book history. I love book inscriptions. It...
I need to clean my room.
I don’t mean the superficial clean but that deep cleanse that you need once every few years. The check-every-drawer, throw-out-old-clothes cleaning.

Finals Week: Pet Peeves & Happy Things
Pet Peeves Water rings. Use coasters! :) People who text while talking to you. What, is my conversation boring you? >:( People who say, “I’m not good at keeping in touch.” Um, no. Think of a better excuse; it ain’t gonna work. Crowded, stuffy libraries. Definitely need to build more study spaces. When the person shaking their leg (and the entire row of desks) is...
