Well, my friends — as fun as it’s been blogging about Washington D.C., SXSW, switching apartments and study abroad this year, all good things must come to an end. The following are some closing thoughts for my final blog post.
This Mother’s Day marks the first year I have been without the woman I admire and love the most.
Over the past month or so, I have been taking occasional breaks from studying, working and BLOGGING to move from one apartment to another during what has been one of my busiest semesters so far.
Less than two months away from my exciting month-long venture to China, I’m beginning to feel the pinch of spending that $1,500 on airfare to and from the other side of the world! At least it was $100 less than the budgeted amount on the study abroad Web site.
South by Southwest (SXSW) is a set of interactive, film and music festivals and conferences that take place in Austin, Texas, each year during spring break. This year, I was lucky enough to attend the interactive portion for the first time!
Today I paid my last respects to Intellectual Property, the colorful two-story bookstore on the Drag, before it closes this Saturday.
Over the past two weeks I have: sat 20 feet away from Natalie Portman, signed a lease on a new apartment, and ordered my official UT class ring, and a dozen other things.
Wow, my last post was nearly a month ago. I usually write about the people and experiences I encounter on a nearly semi-weekly basis in my personal blog…so why is my tardiness this month any exception?
Having finally settled back into Austin, I can now stop and answer some of those ever-present FAQs asked by family, friends and readers about my time in Washington.
As my old friend would constantly quote from Dr. Seuss, “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened!” And oh, how true that is…
