this past weekend was rather lovely for a few reasons. the first being being in the company of my family, who i adore ever so much- and enjoying the marriage of my cousin and her fiance. they’re off to italy for ten days as of tomorrow- venice, florence, rome, and sicilly. a nice deal to tell you the truth. i’d like to be in their place right now- not to say that i have a fiance, or anything close for that matter, but it’d be nice to travel to italy for the next ten days. i stayed up a bit too late last evening & drank too much wine (but i had an excuse this time, because it was in fact a big italian wedding). but the night turned to day and a & i made our way into cambridge once more to enjoy the 80 degree weather and two bacon cheeseburgers at tory rowe. as an afterthought we spent sometime in LUSH and i ended up shelling out a bit too much cash on some soaps and masks and toners and all that lovely stuff. we ended our day eating tiramisu frozen yogurt from JP licks and then travelling back to portland, only to be met with great sadness. not to get my hopes up or anything, a is looking for work down in boston, so perhaps in a year or so we will be relocating (and that would be FINE in my book).
when this week ends, i have two weeks left- so bring on the finals, bring on the studying, the relentless weather, the miserable teachers, and antsy children, bring it on, and expect to be defeated by june 11th, 2010. summer plans are getting ironed out so that they’re crisp and clear as of june 7th. i’m hoping to travel to DC and south korea, as well as spend a good chunk of time in boston in the latter part of august as well as june. july is jam-packed with all sorts of things (the SOS program, my grandfather, family gatherings, birthdays, and… maybe the pitchfork music fest!) i just would like to see how everything sorts themselves out, and i’m open to whatever happens.
the fog is rolling in, my eyes are drooping like wilting petunias and i need to take my beauty sleep. i’m making a surprise dinner & dessert tomorrow…and on tuesday evening i will be listening to some jazz over drinks.
oh, and LOST, so insane, and i can’t even say if i liked the way it turned out yet. tomorrow, tomorrow. go and sleep blogosphere.
