i hate packing. and having so much junk to bring back.
graduation today.
square hats, black robes. pictures.
this week was supposed to be fun and happy, but it was mostly depressing and sad. but now i'm done. finally. on to better things & away from chicago and this place. back to happiness, i hope. i hope.
paul left today. not to be seen again until the end of september. so you fill in the blank.

i need some cheering up.
i need to be home.

this blog will be taking a rest for a while, as will i. if you wish to contact me, do it by actual written letters, or call my home.

I got an interview for a GIS Technician job with TriMet. This would be IDEAL. So awesome. I am incredibly nervous. (ps. thank you thank you Amy for faxing in my app!)
The UCPD sucks. Let's just say I had to deal with an arrogant and unfriendly officer this evening. I almost cried.
Today I found my missing box from Pierce storage. It's been missing for two years! I'm going to bake Santiago some cookies, I'm so happy.

senior week has been stressful. there's so much to get done before graduation on saturday, it's overwhelming.

DDR, my second time ever. shooting for straight A's. i want to play more. it was a fun wheaton weekend. add great people with NO more schoolwork, equals smiles and good food.
i hate grades/gpa stuff. with a passion. and for the most part, it's all so relative and dumb. but i just have to say that this was my best quarter ever. so that made me happy to see my transcript today.
tennis last night. felt good.
i hate how my blog is so boring now. how i never have time to type coherently or in full sentences. nothing sparking my interest, even though there are many blessings i could write about.
countdown to graduation: 6 days.

i need a cleansing, a sunset on a beach, a cheap way to get to and from alaska. i want to hitchhike. with you. i can't do it alone, though i would like to.
T minus 9 days and counting.
cross it all off the checklist.
and hope the CPD contacts me back soon

Question for all you Chitown folks:
Where should I take my parents out for dinner next Friday? I need someplace that isn't expensive and that does not have loud background noise. The quieter, the better.
