old typewriter distraction.

this past week, i spent a great deal of time hunched over at the desk in the office studying..eating..cursing exams..procrastinating..studying..eating..

during one of my studying lulls,

i started poking around the office,
looking for interesting things to distract myself with.

an old antique typewriter,
usually featured in the hallway,
has been cast off into the office to make room for christmas decor.

i started tapping away at it, and much to my delight,

i realized that it still works!

yes, it punches holes in the paper instead of typing the letter 'o'
yes, the 'e' is merely nothing but a big old smudge...
yes, the space bar doesn't really work...
but it sure is a beauty.


exams are done, so i will be back here in full force.
{they went pretty well i think! so relieved to have them finished!}

i think i could sleep a million years...
but i'm not sure when i will even get in a full 8 hours.

things are pretty crazy straight up until i leave for van city sunday morning!
but be assured, i will be be making time for the glee fall finale!

happy friday everyone!

love, janis
