I Love My FORT.

All of my roommates were out of town this weekend, which left me all alone over Valentine's. Luckily, I am a genius, and had the genius idea to build a fort. It was probably one of the best things I have ever done...


A video tour of my fort...

You can't see anything. It is way too dark. haha. but you can listen to me ramble, if you like...

I strung christmas lights across the room. draped sheets over them. Turned the couches over. slid my mattress in. arranged the pillows and blankets. set up the TV and record player. And I snuggled with my penguin "Sullie" that somebody really cool brought me from Sea World. Even though everyone else was out of town, my friend Nathan came over to admire the fortress. He acted like I was weird, but deep inside, I knew he envied it. The fort had to be taken down tonight when my roomies got back from Vegas. Not gonna lie... it pretty much broke my heart to part with it. Maybe I'll build it again one day... after the carpet cleaners are done tomorrow.
