the joys of transitioning.

3 Sep

oh, transitioning.  I can’t believe it’s September already because it never really felt like August. Somehow the summer flew by so surreally. Not only does this mean that my european adventures are definitely over, but it also means back to reality.  My mom and I drove from the heartland out to the mountains on Sunday and she helped me move into my apartment all week. We did try to make some time for a few fun things in between the Target trips. We made time for a trip to Chill-in and we ate at the always delicious Park Burger one night. Our second night here we finally saw Inception (which totally blew my mind btw & confirmed that I think that JGL is fiiiiiiine). That same night we closed Pete’s University Cafe with breakfast for dinner (my fave) and the next night we took my roommate out to dinner at Sushi Den. My mom and I visited my uncle and his family in Wyoming last night and my mom bummed a ride off of another one of my uncles to get back to Iowa.  And so now I’m back in my new apartment, which is unpacked but still pretty unorganized, all alone.  How things have changed! Just a year ago I was meeting new people and making friends in Rennes and today I am starting a new adventure, so far away from all of them (If any of you are reading, I love and miss each and every one of you).

Tangent: once my place is perfect and everything has been put away or hung, I’ll put pictures up of my new place so you can imagine me in my new digs.

Also:

#1. I don’t know where my Pioneer Card is, so if anyone finds it accidentally wedged in between their couch cushions, please let me know.

#2. Sisterhood week (when we prepare for recruitment) starts Monday so I need to be completely done with getting settled in by then.

#3. Classes start the 13th & the little nerd inside of me is hella excited but also petrified.

#4. I have to email like a bajillion people.

#5. I’m trying (key word: “trying”) to put together a video encompassing my last year so if you have any golden nuggets in video or .jpeg format, send them my way. If it ends up being decent, I may post it on youtube to imbed on my blog!

#6. oh yeah. and I need to get groceries.

itty bitty update

14 Aug

The smothering

Here is just a quick update, loves.  Sorry I’ve been M.I.A. the past few days.  I’ve been hella busy!

Today is the last day of my internship at the DAM & I’ll truly be sad to go.  I’ve enjoyed it so much!  And when I get home from work, my mom, my sister and I will get to work on finishing packing up all my shiz. Yikes. That is a scary thought.  My Uncle Jon lives in Wyoming & he was really nice and agreed to store some stuff for me but other than that, everything must go!

I finished my paper last night while my mom and sister were visiting my Aunt and Uncle and since I finished, I then had the lovely opportunity to see some friends from high school who are visiting Denver (woot Lauren & Melissa!).  I took GiGi with and met them at Stella’s and it was really fun- it’s seriously been so long since we’ve gotten together that I have no idea when the last time was that I saw them!

This morning we woke up bright and early at the hotel my mom & sister are staying at.  I drove to campus, printed and turned in my papers (relief) and then went to work.

Calla, Victoria and I went out for a “Last Day of Work” lunch at Maggianos and now I’m just finishing up some work before I leave for the day!

It is very likely that I wont post for the next several days since road trips and blogging don’t really go together ;)

Have a great weekend (I know I will)!
