I guess things just happen for a reason.
I try to take care of my things…but when others “take care” of my things, of course things go awry.
It always happens.
You might as well just do everything yourself.
Take today for example…I wanted to wash one of my favorite tops (the white button-down tunic that I sometimes wear to go swing dancing) so I put it into a netted laundry bag…which means to my mom and myself that whatever is in it CANNOT be dried. You must take it out and line dry whatever it is. Sometimes she puts those bags into the dryer for like 5 minutes though to get out the wrinkles. It would happen today that she forgot about that little bag. It went through the entire dry cycle…and the tunic? Well, it shrunk. It is now small enough to wear as a normal sized button-down shirt…except, when buttoned, it’s super tight.
This is why I like being away at college (except for the home-cooked meals). I don’t need to worry about how my things are taken care of. I just do everything myself. It’s simple…

That’s just life.
C’est la vie.
