Chandler Day 62: A Sweet Surprise

DSC01862I’ve been wanting this book for a while. It’s Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. I’ve been wanting this book for a while and I found a very pretty copy of it over the weekend when I went with Hannah to a book store. But I’m a little short on money and it was more than I wanted to pay for it. So I put it back and we kept looking. She bought a few books and then we went on with our day. Later that night as we were sitting by the fire, I noticed her holding this little red book. I asked what it was and she handed me the book, saying she had wanted to surprise me. It was Brave New World, the exact copy I had found earlier that day. Somehow she got it without me seeing it and was able to surprise me with it. It was such a small gift but it made me so happy. A simple gesture, but a very sweet one. And tonight, I opened it up and started to read it, a nice ending to a long day. And it’s nice because now I look at it and not only is it a pretty book, but it reminds me of her and it makes me smile. 

Chandler Day 58: Essays & Photos

DSC01752-4Tonight was spent in the library. Hannah had a psychology paper on hoarding and OCD to write. Luckily I didn’t have any homework so I got to play around with my camera and help her with her homework.  After a while the paper became stressful and she took a break. I ended up getting a few funny shots and this was the one she allowed me to put up. She got all the research done for the paper and though I like to think I helped, I honestly just played with my camera and was most likely a major distraction the whole time.
