How miserable and unfortunate your journey was. I send you my deepest and most sincere apologies for such a royally (haha) screwed up misadventure. This old hag who weaves such a grievous tale must be hexed. Or banished, or executed (or whatever royalty would do). But remember you are strong and brave. This is why you are king, of course. Your journey for art supplies is far from over, as it’s always darkest before dawn in these times of woe.
Aside from your misfortune, it seems you are doing well otherwise. I cannot wait until I am able to see your climbing skills first hand! It will be a joyous occasion, indeed. Crack climbing sounds rather intense. You’re going to be royally buff and studly.
On the home front, things have been quite strange. Our lovely city and the surrounding inhabitants were greatly affected by the wildfires. It was a complete shock. The city as a whole is doing its best to find means to serve those affected. Many homes were lost and it was truly tragic. As you may know, my mother works very close to Steiner Ranch, but luckily the business was spared by a simple change in winds. During the week, the downtown area looked so hazy, as though a massive cloud hung over it. How sad it is.
Good news from myself though, I started my first project for my major (Photocommunications). I’m taking photos based solely on different types of lighting using a 35mm camera. It’s pretty exciting. I love the facilities my campus offers. The dark rooms and processing equipment are truly fit for a Queen such as myself.
I also managed to get myself a royally hunky beau named Roberto. He is quite the stunner. So that’s cool. I’ve also become really good friends with a lovely lady by the name of Deanna, who is also a PHCO major. She’s pretty legit, and extremely talented. The three of us attended a lovely party that the university held on campus known as Hillfest. It was quite a joy, including free carnival rides, food, and tee-shirts. I’ll try and post some images later.
On another note, I went to our high school yesterday to see The Beauty Queen of Leenane. I became rather nostalgic, really, especially since this time a year ago we were in a play about, yes, people in 911. How strange it all is. How much we’ve grown. How time flies, and how the last year has changed us. I wished you were there to see our younger friends act. It was rather delightful.
I wish you all the best and apologize for this rather long-winded letter.
Missing you royally,
p.s. I wish everyone peace and happiness today.
