Let’s not forget how adorable my daughter is.


i have limited sympathy for people who get told “no” after a public proposal because public proposals are pretty much emotionally abusive

like seriously

if you think it’s kinda cute, you can discuss it beforehand and then do a staged one later

but putting someone on the spot in front of a crowd of strangers (or worse, friends) and demanding they give you a yes or no answer to a complex question which will affect the rest of their life is

really not okay

Lazy Monday

Well, mother just left. She has been in town for the past few days. It’s always nice to see her, but after a while, she gets really annoying to me. I love her super mega a lot, but I’m kinda glad she is gone.
Today is my day off. So, I am planning on just relaxing.
I have actually been very busy over the past week. I normally don’t do much and spend most of my time at home, alone. But over the past week or two, I have been really busy. I have been out doing things and meeting up with friends. It’s been nice to catch up with some friends I haven’t seen in a while. Then mother got into town Friday night and stayed till this afternoon..
Sooooo! Today I am just going to chill!
I made a pallet in the living room and I am laying on it in my blanket burrito. My Rosalie is laying beside me and we are watching the Food Network. It feels really nice outside, so I have all the windows open and I fixed myself some tea.
I am one happy Brooke right now.
I may cuddle up with my pup and take a nap.. then go running once the sun starts to go down. That sounds nice.
I’m kinda thinking about playing The Sims or Minecraft, though.
So many possibilities!

Tomorrow I gotta go to the main office. I have to turn in my rent. And I have some school paper work that I need to print out, so I am hoping they will let me borrow their printer.
ALSO! I have to let them know that I will not be renewing my lease once it runs out in December! YEP! That is something I haven’t written about on Tumblr yet, but it’s happening! My life in Dallas will be coming to an end in 3 short months! I’ve made the decision to move back to Louisiana! I’ve been thinking about it for weeks.
I started to think about it and there is no reason for me to stay in Dallas anymore. Dallas is super beautiful, fun and has TON of culinary opportunity.. BUT I am less than a week away from graduating school.. So, I won’t have school keeping me here. And another reason I was going to stay is for Rodrigo, but that’s over. We actually don’t even talk at all anymore. So.. there is no reason to stay here.
In Louisiana I have friends and family. And there I can find a roommate that can help me with bills. Because living here alone is getting really expensive.
I just need a change. And that change is Louisiana.

I’ll talk more about it later. Right now, I want to go enjoy being lazy.
Bye Tumblr!
