I rarely get gifts,

but I got the best one yet last Friday.

My boyfriend made me an anthology of "Zet-related literature". Tell me, how awesome is that? I am still incredibly amazed at how he manages to outdo himself every single time. I don't think I've ever received something as special as this and yes, it is definitely going to LA with me! We just celebrated our first month together and at the risk of sounding redundant, it was truly a special night. We dined at a nice French restaurant with Carla Bruni's music in the background (I especially loved the timing of "You Belong To Me". God, this entry is getting way too cheesy). For my part, I did give him something! I really wanted to make it special so...

I got this. I should remind myself just how much I suck at following instructions the next time I even think about getting anything that has to be folded. Anything that requires a lot more creativity than my brain is willing to provide. Yes, even illustrated instructions are gibberish to me. One note took forever to fold and it didn't even look like a paper boat in the end. All that folding for nothing! Thank goodness he liked it despite the ugly result. It's the thought (and content) that counts, or so I like to believe. I also gave him a shirt and it was red. He's Chinese. I need not explain any further. /EpicFailureAsAGirlfriend

Not like I have to say it, but I've been so happy. I quit my job already and I have a whole month free to dedicate to whatever I want before I leave. I think October is going to be pretty amazing. I just don't know how it's going to be able to surpass September, but I'm looking forward to it! :)
