ok i’m back and i have serious to quite serious PSTD.  I spent the past week eating meat and cookies on 15 minute cycles because I knew that coming back to Philadelphia would mean granola bars and vending machine twizzlers that is the hardest part about this grad school business.  I also had to buy new suitcases because my clothes got heavier I accumulated so many new expensive things but I packed it all really well because I’m responsible and this morning I was ready to go early and through tears I said goodbye mom scott meat and cookies i love you and then got in the car and went to the wrong airport.   Did you know that Chicago has two airplane stations?  tricky.

Also did you know that toyota hybrids can go wicked fast?   sorry mom we ruined your 49 mpg it is down to 48.2 are you mad Sarah drove hella fast from o’hare to midway who knew it could take 10 minutes?

The bad good news is I made it.  So. Good thing.  Because now I can finally stop eating meat and cookies and start shopping for husbands internships.   Gotta start planning early!  Before all the good ones are taken!  And you’re not the only one left!  hahahahhahahah.

Here’s a photo of my last meal.  I know. It’s hard for me too.

goodbye duck i love you

My flight was delayed but that’s ok because Southwest is the “take it easy” crew and it took me an hour to check in my 48 lb bag whoops sahhhreeee.  Pa Sweet picked me up at the airport then drove me to Ma Sweet’s office and we had the exchanging of the child and Ma Sweet took me home and made me lamb patty pita sandwiches and mulled-wines and then I was like this is the best I’m tired and she was like what do you mean let’s watch the TV so we did for 2 hours.  And then this morning we woke up and made cappuccinos and listened to this song because we saw the krumpers dance to it on So You Think You Can Dance and Ma Sweet said, i want to learn how to krump.  Winter project?

Safety First, originally uploaded by acsweet.

ok i’m really behind don’t be mad. I am 95% done with Grad School Part I/IV. I have spent the last week writing/crying/eating cookies this is not a joke. It’s been like a nightmare and a dream at the same time. Stay up all night and write 20 page papers, go to bar and find secret cookie bakery. It happened. I’m posting photos. Also it snowed a lot and now my bike is buried (rip?) and my flight is canceled. the good news is I have plenty of time to finish my graphics final. the bad news is I have plenty of time to finish my graphics final.  Here’s a song called Cold Cold Cold.
