free fall

This post is so unnecessary.

I WANTED TO WRITE BUT IT WAS TOO GODDAMN HOT AND THEN I WANTED TO WATCH SPN BUT NETFLIX IS GETTING RID OF LAW & ORDER ON 30 SEPTEMBER SO I FEEL LIKE I'M NOT ALLOWED TO WATCH ANYTHING BUT LAW & ORDER UNTIL I HAVE TO UTTER MY WEEPY GOODBYES.

Also, I know I was camping literally a week ago, but I want to go again right now. With the exception of my giant bed and, you know, electricity and running water and plumbing, I do my best to camp in my house as a poor substitute for actually camping. I leave all the windows open, so when it's hot, it's hot in here, too. I leave all the windows open, so when it rains, it rains in here, too. Yes, I've slept in a wet bed because I didn't want to close the window, and a decent number of my class readings are water damaged. XP I put towels down to spare the carpet, since that's not mine.

Today a huge storm whipped up, delightfully chasing away the heat. But the winds were so strong they actually slammed my laptop closed over my hands and flung it across the bed. THERE ARE LEAVES 15 FEET INSIDE MY HOUSE, FROM MY BEDROOM WINDOW. But I still can't bring myself to close it, because wind. Rain. I just want it here with me.

Speaking of, yes! Camping! My first time camping in Michigan! Or actually, anywhere east of Montana! We went to the southern part of Lake Michigan, closeish to Chicagoland.

But today I'll dream of backpacking Yosemite, and going to Iceland, and all the innumerable places I desperately want to go someday. (Okay, so I don't desperately want to go to Yosemite, but it's essentially local to my hometown, so it seems silly not to have been!)
