Currently drinking wine and conducting research for a scholarly article draft on gender inequalities linked to men taking advantage of women’s physical states during pregnancy.

I’m so happy…
All of my fiance’s friends love me, and his best friends call me “sister-in-law”.
Felix just came through. They left out of the apartment to get some coal for the hookah. He smiled and gave me a kiss on the cheek before they left out. He told me that he loves me and that he is so glad that I am a part of his family. Even Chris’s less vocal friends tell me that they love me now.
It’s just great to feel accepted and to be a part of an external family. I wish that I could figure out a singular way to show each one of them how much I care about them.
Life is so good. I would experience every horrible aspect of it again just so that it could lead me back to this moment.
