Let’s just start with saying that yesterday I turned in my last college final:
My parents flew all the way from Guatemala to come to my graduation – first stop commencement. During the day, I went shopping with my M&D. We went into Seagull book and mom brought me this and said “Here is your graduation present”:
Later on in the day, Andrea (my former co-work from Bath and Body and math tutor) and I headed up to campus to get in line for commencement:
Then after I found M&D and snapped some pics with them:
So grateful my parents could make it all the way out here to celebrate with me! They are greatest.
Day 3 of snow covered golf:
I know what you’re thinking, “WASH YOUR DAMN CAR ALREADY!”
Today was a good day! I woke up to the sound of snowblowers outside my apt. I of course imaged them instead as lawnmowers and dreamed of green trees and sunburns. And guess what, it worked! Well, until I walked outside to meet J for lunch and stepped in a huge snowslushie that is my apartment building grounds. This snow is amazing! I don’t remember a winter like this all of my life.
Tonight on campus, I brought a bag full of Trader Joe’s treats with me (looked like I had brought a naughty beverage) so I wouldn’t starve to death. Class was so good tonight! I love my Persuasion and Politics class. My teacher uses new media tools and I LOVE IT. Like, he is one Google+-Hangout-guest-speaker away from getting a handwritten Thank You card. Tonight we heard from Rob Saliterman. He works for Google and manages the sales and outreach for Republican campaigns. He joined us via Google hangout all the way from D.C.
After class, I made J stop and take a picture of me and the huge sparkly pile of snow on the trek from LNCO to my car:
I LOVE YOU,
On Monday, I left my apartment to fresh snow and blue skies! Ah, Utah has had the worst air in the nation for the last (feels like ten years) couple of weeks. Even though digging my little Golf out of the snow is a pain, I feel like it’s an appropriate price to pay for clean air and blue skies.
After my internship, J came and got me and we went to J’s favorite restaurant, My Thai. The food there is so good! Jackie always gets the beef basil (super spicy) and I alternate between what I order. Last night I got Tom Kha Gai. MMMM. Delicious mixture of coconut, cilantro, chicken, and spices. Jackie donated plasma earlier in the day and was feeling rather worn out…this meant that she was being hilarious.
She makes me laugh cry EVERY.TIME.I.SEE.HER. love you, boo!
Anyways, today I walked out of my apartment to a snow covered golf, again! (strangely I got the same parking spot two days in a row (all the smartcar drivers must be on road trips?!?)).
Today I was walking through the Union and the study abroad fair was going on. Reminded me of last year, when on a whim I wandered in to that same fair and learned all about London. I got super jealous at the thought of new students going on the London study abroad this year. Ahhhhhh.
I LOVE YOU,
