I finished up my 21-hour semester on Thursday (May 9), and this is the first summer in two years that I'm not taking any classes.
This summer, I plan to:
- walk dogs for money (I already do this for free, so I was pretty pleased when I started working for a dog-walking company this morning)
- read for fun
- read academic articles about nutrition so that I can talk about them here and to become a better-informed dietetics student
- laugh, spend time with friends, and get my husband all to myself
Here are some of the fun things that you have missed while I was in hibernation:
Since April 28, I have lived in this swanky new apartment with this view below.
Here's another great event: the first of my friends had a baby. Jessie was one of my bridesmaids at my wedding. She was about two months pregnant there, and only she and her husband knew. They managed to keep it a secret from everybody, and nobody even noticed that Jessie wasn't pounding down wine like everybody else!
Two days after Kaylee was born, my friends Kate and Dan got engaged. He took her to dinner and then walked her across the street to the bar where we were all waiting. Before they walked into the bar (Kate had no idea that we were there), he took her over to the window right in front of us and proposed to her. We got so many good photos of it. Once the proposal was over, they met us in the bar where we celebrated late into the night.
Fun upcoming events include me getting LASIK surgery in two days (unless I freak out last-minute and don't get it) and a week-long trip to Mexico for my cousin's wedding. I also need to get a couch since the only thing that I have to sit on is my bed or my desk chair. This may not come as a shock, but I am looking forward to Mexico the most and LASIK the least. I'm not really sure why I categorized it under "fun" events. I guess that as long as I don't lose my eyesight or have impaired vision as a complication from the procedure, I'll be happy in the long-term.
More on that later.
Now, it's time for bed!
