A cookie monster.

Everyone, meet Cookie, my new foster kitten. She was picked up by the feral cat spay/neuter-release program and deemed too tame to re-release. They surgically remove part of the left ear while they're under anesthesia to tag cats that have already been altered so they don't cut open an animal unnecessarily. I think it's adorable because it fits her name; she looks like someone's taken a bite out of her.

She's cute on a stick and one of the most demanding, cuddly cats I've ever known.

New apartment!

All done unpacking and decorating! Time for photos!

All things I've dove for or found on the beach. Ditto for the pic below.

I love my apartment, yes I do!

Semester break numero dos!

My family came down to visit for the first week of break. I got to see my momma, my grandma, my aunt and my cousin (who is preggers with another cousin). It was great to show them around my island and take them to some of my favorite restaurants. I even had a few new experiences - tried sugar cane for the first time and got to see a lot of things on our island tour that I didn't get to the first time I did it back in January.

I'm also all moved in to my new apartment. I love it. I more than love it. I am so happy and at peace here. It's my space and my things and quiet, so quiet. No passive aggressive roommates, no ill-behaved dogs jumping all over me anytime I so much as leave my room for a glass of water. Nothing but birds, Coqui frogs, waves pounding the beach and the occasional monkey scuffle. In other words, heaven on earth.

Anyway. Pictures!
