Neighborhood cats, reading on lawns, internships, and other things


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
