- I was in Europe for three weeks in July and didn't bring my laptop for obvious reasons. I mean, I was in Europe, hellloooo. I went to Bulgaria, Italy and England and did tremendous amounts of exploring. I was able to see things I had only read about in books or seen in movies, up close and personal. I got to go inside the Pantheon and the Colosseum and the Winchester Cathedral and see Durdle Door and just see so much history...it was an incredible experience. Don't get me wrong, I do love America; it's where I come from, it's what I'm used to and where I'm comfortable. But America doesn't even have 300 years of history...Rome is literally ancient. I visited a church that was built in the 600s in England. It was just all quite surreal to me. And I got to spend three weeks with my sister whom I miss so much already.
- I moved out of my apartment in Tampa and back to my parents house. I have really mixed feelings about this. For one, I've lived on my own for four years now, so to come back to living with mom and dad is just weird. However, my parents are amazing so it hasn't been all bad. I've finally got my closet organized and we've just been putting together all my new furniture. It's finally starting to look like a bedroom! I plan on being here for less than a year though. I just want to save money while looking for big-girl jobs.
- I helped move Frank into his new apartment in Tennessee. I had a great six days up there with him, putting together his new room and exploring Knoxville while he prepared for law school. It was really hard to say goodbye, especially since our situation is a little different now. We decided not to do long distance for the first semester and/or year of law school. We had a lot of reasons, but we mostly just didn't want to end up resenting each other if he didn't have time to talk/I couldn't come up to visit/etc. Like I said, lots of reasons. But I'm not letting it get me down.
So life has been kind of weird lately. Different, spontaneous, overall strange. But I'm coping! And while I may be bummed sometimes, I'm finding my way. Finding happiness.
