The Final Countdown

Saturday, August 23, 2008

Well, four days to go! It's amazing that the summer is suddenly over. When I think back to last May when I came home it seems like forever ago but it still has flown by. Last night was my last night at work. (I spent the summer working at an ice cream stand which I actually enjoyed!) I've worked the last 13 out of 14 days so it's been really nice to just sit down and not worry about it for a day.

I have to say my family and friends are amazing. Today Alanna took me to the loop to get some stuff for school. I was basically all set (after spending $100 at Target the other day) but I got a pair of sneakers and some snacks for my plane ride. We hung out at her house for a while while she "got ready to visit her aunt." Around three she drove me home. My mother had mentioned that we were going out to eat after the neighbors had their bocce game, so it didn't phase me that there were so many cars in the driveway. It wasn't until I saw and New Hampshire license plate that I got confused. It slowly dawned on me that I was completely tricked. Good job everyone! I was honestly surprised. I am glad I got to see everyone before I left.

Aside from working I've spent a lot of time reading. I've tried to mix up my books and get a little bit of everything in. So far I've read:
A Thousand Splendid Suns
A Tale of Two Cities
Crime and Punishment
Anna Karenina
Twilight (x2)
New Moon
Breaking Dawn (yea, the last four were kind of a guilty pleasure)
Sense and Sensibility

I bought a few more books to take on my trip but who knows what I'll get to. I forgot that I would have to go through a placement exam for Russian language and I haven't look at it about four months.

I should really finish my packing but I think I'm going to watch Harry Potter 4 instead :-)
