so we haven’t posted in literally 5 (count em, FIVE) months. i just got done skyping netti and i have realized A LOT! we have gotten over people, learned what friendships we need to value, gotten our dream houses on campus for senior year, started learning how to stay happy, and realized that no matter what we’re still family - can we be *gasp*, growing up???

WE’RE BECOMING SUCCESSFUL HUMAN BEINGS PARENTS!!

i’m snacking sophisticatedly - wine and stove-top popcorn. it’s delicious! and after one hour with them, i’m ready to conquer the most boring homework EVER. and netti’s out running organizations and wearing button up shirts like a big kid. we’re so proud of each other!

not being home for thanksgiving..

..is actually pretty strange. all i want to do is snuggle in bed, watch the macy’s thanksgiving day parade, eat pumpkin pie, and have slightly awkward//comical interactions with my semi-dysfuntional italian family. i guess there’s always xmas. HAPPY TURKEY DAY EVERYONE!

random things we’re seeing in this fancy five star hotel dfru’s gotten us:

1. a mini fridge full of alcohol, chocolate, mixers, snacks, tea, fruit.
2. a personalized note from dfru’s travel agent.
3. a bottle of gucci perfume.
4. a HUGE bathtub!
5. free internet

more to come from our best london trip!

all stocked up on goods for my election all nighter.

I’M PASSING A KENYON ENGLISH CLASS WITH AN A!!!! so far that is. but who cares?? it’s happening!!! maybe this means my gpa will finally be a real number. plus, i’m healthy again and i get to go visit dad and bowman in topsham and watch a movie and some election stuff and my room is kinda clean and i refrained from washing the dishes that some humans have left in my kitchen for a month that i swear are too toxic to ever use again. and my nails are red and i might just do laundry and check my mail instead of catching up on once upon a time. actually, i’ll just end up watching it later, we all know that. happy election day and vote!!!

mona lisa? whatever. 

like jasmine just said, we’ve both been pretty terrible at keeping up with this tumblr. but i’ve decided to put off doing my paper(s) a little while longer (#masterprocrastinator) to fill y’all in on my european adventuretimes! 

two weekends ago i visited the sultry miss mawissa hartman in scotland. since i’m from the uber bland, cookie-cutter suburbs of long island, where beautiful nature is practically non-existent and there is no variation in landscape, i’m pretty much always longing for mountains. and Edinburgh, Scotland is the mecca of beautiful mountains/magical castles/beauty in general. needless to say, i fell in love with the city and am super envious of all the kenyon biddies who get to live there! while in edinburgh (which is pronounced edin-BRAH) i took a tour of the Edinburgh Castle (every time i caught a glimpse of the castle, especially at night, i was in awe), climbed (or rather walked up) Arthur’s Seat, listened to some traditional scottish songs performed by a live band in a pub (there were two really drunk dudes with kilts on dancing around and it was hysterical), and went to the Scottish National Gallery. plus, i got to spend time with Marissa, and that in and of itself was lovely. 

the past few days i was in Paris with Oli. the main reason for visiting paris was to attend the Pitchfork Music Festival which was INCREDIBLE! ROBYN <3 TALLEST MAN ON EARTH <3 M83 <3 + other musicians who were all really awesome. but we did some touristy things too, like going to the top of the Eiffel Tower (it’s so windy up there!) and the Musée du Louvre (we were kinda unimpressed though). oh, and we drank so much chocolat chaud. it was pretty much the only thing we consumed while we were there. 

alrighty, i think i’m going to start doing my work now…

cheers,

netti

diseases, conditions, sickness…DFRU NEEDED

so both of us sporadic tumblrers are down with some stuff. we’re still not sure what it is. so we might not be on here a lot (i know, we totally were before huh). but on the bright side, it’s our first time dealing with disease on our own. yay growing up! we might have diseases or conditions, or sicknesses. wouldn’t it be weird if we had the same thing? there are a few reasons why that would be odd. anyways, DFRU WE NEED YOU AND YOUR MAGICAL WAYS!! so new york, i’ma need y’all to get power back to long island so we can call our mommy. got it? good.

I can (barely) see the tip of the Eiffel Tower from my hotel room&#8217;s balcony. Is this real life?!

i think dfru might&#8217;ve just pissed her pants out of excitement. i on the other hand am swallowing sadness. thank goodness i&#8217;m leaving for paris tomorrow &#8212; something awesome to look forward//distract me from the fact that MICHELLE OBAMA IS COMING TO KENYON AND I WILL NOT BE THERE TO BASK IN HER BEAUTY.
