Found a really cool wall with tons of books carved into it. :]
New Friends and Creepy Pacers
I was a freak and started grabbing a train schedule for every train route in America. :p The two that are showing are the two that we took. So the last train had a crazy lady, and this train had a bunch of creepy people pacing the train. This one guy had a speech impediment, so he was really hard to understand. From the second we got on the train, he was talking to everyone and we are pretty sure he offered this guy Jefferey (one of our new friends) a blow job. This guy proceeded to pace the train the whole entire ride, from 7.30pm until 11.44am the next day. He would grab stuff from under peoples seats and wake them up at crazy hours of the night, like Christina, our other new friend. At four in the morning, she got so fed up with this guy that she called Amtrak headquarters to complain. (Go Christina!) He kept saying he was a cop and a genius, but past that, we didn’t understand much he said. Christina was actually on the train from Chicago with us as well. We ended up talking to Jefferey a lot towards the end of the train ride and we fed him too! haha. It was nice to meet new people and we hope to keep in touch and hopefully see them again someday. :]
Took this in Jacksonville, Florida on our third train. (The one from Washington DC to Deland, Florida)
Huzzah! I have internet so I can upload these finally. Judd and I took our first cross country train ride Monday-Wednesday to come down to Florida to visit/help his mom. The train ride was awesome, despite the crazy lady in front of me who was flipping out on everyone for making noises, yet she was being the loudest and rudest person on the train. “Nuhuh, she can’t be reclining her chair here!”
The train was comfy and had a cool observation car with large windows everywhere. :]
Took this somewhere after Cumberland, Maryland on our second train. (The one from Chicago to Washington DC)
I hated this movie the first few times I saw it. Anyways, this will be the last photo I will be able to post until Wednesday. I will be on a train Monday and Tuesday, so I will still take my photos (on a train! :D), I just won’t have internet to post them for a few days.
Sleepy Grunts and Spinny Chairs
Holyshit, I made it through a month already. How has that much time already passed?! Anyways, thanks to Judd for the idea for the colors of the lettering and for reminding me that I wrote tons of love quotes on pieces of paper and put them inside a star box I made him a few years ago. :p
In eight days this book will be full. I am debating what book to use next, another one just like this, or one that is different shaped/sized. In six days I will be on my first cross country train ride. :D Which means at least one 365 photo will be taken on a train! :D :D :D
Also, I knew I was going to miss my family and my cats while I am gone, but I just realized I am also going to miss my Mickey slippers. bahaha.
I got my first comment in a foreign language today! All the way from Pescara. :]

There are many adventures awaiting you. :]
My aunt Cathy and cousin Courtney recently opened up a new shop in Chicago called What Knots. They sell artisan creations and vintage finds. (and offer a photograph heaven for people like me…). I highly recommend checking it out! Also, for all artists/crafters, you can talk to them about selling your creations there!
