Life in Lawrence

So, no one really posts on the blog anymore. But I'm sick and I have been sitting at home all day alone and I'm kind of bored, so I thought I would give this a try. I finished out my semester strong, my grades ended up being 3 As and 3 Bs if you include my JUCO class. I am excited to finally start nursing school, my orientation is in August, and I will be living with mom and dad again, which should be fun for all of us.
Mom is going to the lake for all of June, so I am going to go home for Memorial day and have dinner with the family before she departs. Sean and I (maybe Andrew also) are going to go down to see her on her birthday weekend, so that should be a lot of fun.
In a couple weeks Sean and I are going up to Minnesota to hang with Mary and Paul - should be fun! We are going to see the new Twins stadium which is exciting.
I just made plans with Danny to go down and spend a weekend with him and Brigid in STL. Andy and I are gonna drive down and maybe go to a Cardinals game and just hang out for a few days, so I'm excited about that also!
I'm still sick, I've been fighting a ridiculous cold for a while, but I've taken a few days off work now, so I am finally starting to feel better.

Its all of a sudden a little lonely in Lawrence. School ended so Sean left, my best friend Megan got an internship in Dallas for the summer, so she is gone but hopefully I can visit her this summer. Brit is still here (my roommate for those of you who dont know), but she works ALL THE TIME and has the opposite work schedule as me, so that is sad. And Andy has been gone for a couple days now - he went hiking in Arkansas with his roommate so we have no form of contact. Everything is moving a little slower here in Lawrence while everyone is trying to get summer kicked off and I'm trying to get over this cold. I'm still working at Old Chicago, until the end of the summer at least. I'm not going to work during my first semester at Avila because they require that you take 18 hours and I'm afraid work would jeopardize school, especially my first semester.

Anyway, that is all. Maybe some of you will read this, maybe not, but it helped with my boredom for a while.

Love you all.
