since i've been away

Harley has pretty much been the sole caretaker of H&J for the last few weeks -- she's amazing. She got back from her Chicago internship the day before I left for my own internship in Virginia. The whole thing happened faster than my liking, being the least spontaneous person I know. One night I wrote "Seattle, here I come," in my journal, and the next was an entry about how I accepted an offer in the East instead. Life has been equally busy and lazy, which is a combination I can't figure out (I think it's the adjustment from having homework every day for a year to nothing, but still having responsibilites). To catch everyone up, here is a kitchy collection of snapshots from my last few weeks. (The above photo is from the road trip over here. Somewhere in Wyoming or Idaho. It was a really. Long. Drive.)
My aunt and I watch an episode (or two or three) every night. I'm obsessed.
This is what happens when you leave a bottle of maple syrup next to a chocolate bunny in a hot car.
My six- and eight-year-old cousins grabbed this month's Vogue and said to me, "Look! Look how pretty Princess Kate is!" That was the best moment of my day.
I got another job (since my internship is, tragically, unpaid) at a tanning salon, and if I go tanning I plan on using these stickers.
I'm the proud owner of a brand spanking new Hunger Games DVD. Thank you, Target. 
My cousins left this for me in my room. Remember how I said I'm obsessing about Vampire Diaries? I SWEAR that is vervain. This is vamp country, afterall.
