I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted here, sorry about that. I’m not sure how much I’ll be using this blog in the future, either.
However, I’m actively using collegeavisual.tumblr.com for the pictures I take, and tomorrow I leave for a semester in St. Petersburg, Russia! If anyone is interested, I am using mrsmithgoestorussia.tumblr.com to keep track of all my adventures! I promise that one will be updated at least weekly (if not I won’t get credit for my honors stuff)! It will definitely have weekly summaries and probably pictures. In case I don’t put many pictures there, you can always check collegeavisual.tumblr.com as it will have every picture I take!
Anyway, thanks for following me!
Summer: Day Three
I woke up about nine when Graham and Brolin scream attacked me on the couch. Immediately, Graham made me play Mario Kart. Of course, I didn’t have in my contacts and I was only semi-conscious, but I still managed to get sixth place. After that, I told Graham I was done and went back to sleep till eleven when Becky got back. They all left and I showered. My dad, Lisa, and I packed up his truck and my car, then headed out. Dad bought me gas which was really great. It was even the slightly better quality kind because that station had had an excess and it was the same price as the regular, woo! Got Chick-fil-A then met my dad at Taco Villa.
Aaaaand that started the really long drive back to Dallas. When we got to Fort Worth, my dad got pulled over, but he didn’t get a ticket, thankfully. I don’t know why he got pulled over though, he was definitely not the fastest moving car in the vicinity. Oh well. Hit traffic (which I forgot was a thing because I’ve been in Lubbock for so long) that sucked for probably ten miles, then cleared up around Cooper Street in Arlington. When we finally made it back home, I had to wait in the Office Depot parking lot for my dad to catch up so I could get Lisa’s suitcase out of his truck. After that I dropped Lisa at her house and talked to her mom for a bit.
When I finally got home, my parents helped me unload everything before taking me dinner at Cafe Brazil. It was really great because Taryn wasn’t there so we didn’t have anyone argue against it! I really enjoy food that I don’t have to pay for.
I picked Taryn up from her theatre banquet after dinner. My parents were watching the series finale to The Office when I got back. Connie told me that I needed to watch it, so I did. OH MY GOSH NOT OK. IT WAS PERFECT AND THEN I WAS REALLY SAD AND IT WAS REALLY UPSETTING AND PERFECT AND BEAUTIFUL AND JUSTICAN’TEVENBECAUSEOHMYGOSH. Wow. It was really really wonderful and it nearly made me cry, which is really hard because I don’t have a soul or a heart or anything. Yes. Good job. I even watched the “making of” show after it. Geez. This show.
Everyone went to bed when it ended, but I stayed up (till nearly seven in the morning) to unpack, which actually means that I set up all of my electronics, watched Malcolm in the Middle, made my bed, and all around did nothing at all.
