Then I sauntered out of my apartment, and I walked down the street, and I rode the bus to the nearest little station area. I checked out the morning scene, and that was kind of fun. I shopped a bit. I bought a few things that I really needed, not to much. Then I returned back to my apartment, and dropped them off. Then after that I called my mom, and we chatted for a while. We didn't talk to long, but we got caught up with what's going on with my family, and all of that.
