It’s been a while!
I’m really sorry kiddos! I’ve been busy in the past month plus.
Also, I’m an airhead.
Please don’t leave me?
Immediately after rocking the GREs (kindly see last post), I visited my boyfriend in California.
I was a real brat about leaving. Leaving the incredible food that I’m so (so) spoiled with every time, the wonderful family, the weather. THE WEATHER. Because after California, we went back east to DC.
Do you know how hot August in DC is?
It is in the nineties everyday, at least. It is so hot that government literally leaves town. They just clear out! I am not making this up.
(But I still love you, DC.)
Then we went to New York for a few days. We had tapas, pizza, a surprise party, and — shockingly — a hotel room! This is the first time I’ve stayed in a hotel since starting school there. (I think.) It was great, by which I mean air conditioned. Even though there were traffic police leaving the building when we went in? Awkward.
Then we went back to Iowa City. A rain forest had sprouted in our absence!
I chopped it down. It took AGES! And sorry, I don’t have an after shot, but all that canopy in the upper left — chopped! Pruned! Weeds eliminated. I’m really proud of it.
Then we went to Des Moines for the day. The capitol building is seriously gorgeous. We even got a private tour of the law library and Supreme Court, since there were so few people there. And we’re famous.
Then my mom came to visit. We ate everywhere! (Maybe I’ll share some reviews later on…) THEN we went to Kansas City. AND NOW, Mom has gone back to DC and Billy has too!, for a job interview. HOOOOO BOY.
Now? Here I am, just me and “The Office.” Or “Dancing With The Stars.” Depending on the commercials. Seriously though: did you know Bristol Palin, the Situation, David Hasselhoff, Michael Bolton, AND Florence Henderson are all on this season?
I never watched before.
Now I may.
Just me, television, and Chinese take-out. Don’t mind if I do.
