Vacation officially over
I took an unintentional break from blogging during the rest of my time in L.A. and then the three weeks I spent at my parents' house in Indiana. There was just a lot going on, and I was too tired to open my computer most days, let alone write a blog post. That's alright since I saw most of the people who read my blog. To those of you who do read and I did not see during my almost eight weeks in America (which is a shame and it would be nice to meet in real life sometime) you can catch up with my picture journal below. Because, I just know you are dying to know what I did. My life is, after all, intensely interesting.
Here we go...
I studied a bunch with my friend, Naomi, and we drank a lot of coffee together, just like true graduate students should
Regan arrived home from Nigeria (yea!), and finally after many years of cajoling she convinced me to go to Disneyland. Ask Regan about Disneyland sometime. She will tell you all about her happiest place on earth. It was actually way cooler than I thought it would be and it was lovely to have one last day with Regan and Naomi. Thank you, Regan, for convincing me to go.
We managed to squeeze in a trip to Chicago for a few days where we marveled at Frank Lloyd Wright architecture, walked around the city, visited the Art Institute, ran along the lakefront, and I introduced Niek to the joy of a deep dish pizza.
