I realize it's been several months. I have no excuse. I've been working, reading, and playing TWEWY. Oh, and eating. A LOT.
Here are some pictures:
My parents got me TWO cakes for graduation. This is the second, weirdly-shaped one.
I moved in June! I had a whole box just for tea. A whole box.
This summer, I've been working as an admissions counselor intern in Undergraduate Admissions. It's pretty sweet.
I share an office with Joe, my fellow intern.
My name badge.
My International Relations thesis, "Speech We Hate: An Argument for the Cessation of International Pressure on Japan to Strengthen Its Anti-Child Pornography Laws" was published in the Augsburg Honors Review! Hot damn.
I've been biking to work almost all summer (except for when it got stupid hot/humid and when I got really sick). My mommy bought me a Chrome bag so my stuff is protected from the weather/easier on my back!
Joe and I at the Admissions staff retreat. We bowled. I totally rocked up my first round (a turkey!), but halved my score the second round.
I went up to the top of the Witch's Hat Tower, a once-a-year event in the Twin Cities.
I have a yard at my new place! It's pretty slick.
My diploma. I'm a BAMF.
Reading Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, my new favorite Murakami book.
Jake and I spent an afternoon lying on a beach along the Mississippi River. I live in a beautiful city.
McDonald's had a Pokemon toy promotion. I went to McDonald's a lot during those couple weeks.
Alan and Lily at the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 midnight premiere.
Jake and I at the premiere. This picture was taken before I spent at least an hour-and-a-half bawling my eyes out. THE PRINCE'S TALE D:
Jake, after he finished eating the meterwurst (yes, a meter of bratwurst) at Gasthof's.
Jake made me a mix-tape. A legit mix-tape. We're so hip.
I read all three of The Hunger Games books. I won't deny fangirling.
The neighborhood cat that sometimes comes to visit us. This time, he followed me home after a walk around the block.
So, that's that. I've also been tutoring a girl in Japanese, going up north to Milaca, and writing my COMM 1101 syllabus, too. It's been a pretty good summer. And there's a WHOLE MONTH LEFT! :D
