cut like a buffalo

I finally got to hang out with my sister and her family today and it was fantastic. I haven't seen my niece or nephew in almost year and it's been hard! They look so different now! I love playing with them. It's cool that as they get older they develop their own little personalities. Kaylee is really into music and dancing right now. She loves Taylor Swift and knows all the words to her songs. She loves to dance around and play her guitar too. And Tyler is starting to talk more and actually say sentences. Adorable.

On the way home I realized that when my sister was my age, she had been married for almost two years and was pregnant with her first child. And that made me sad. And then I felt weird that it made me sad.

starman: let all the children boogie.

Right now I'm just trying to focus on being calm. Which is hard for me.

Over the weekend I went to look at apartments in Columbia with my mom and my aunt. It was actually a lot of fun and I think I found a place that I really like. It was on the higher end of the rent spectrum I'm willing to pay, but it's a good size and it's literally blocks from campus. It has a cute little front porch area where I could put out a table and chairs. It has a new kitchen too. I'm going to look at some more this Friday. Even if those don't work out, at least I know I really like this place. Bah!

I'm also officially registered as an MU student. I'm enrolled in my class (which isn't really a's just lab time) for the summer too! So excited. I still don't know exactly what I'll be doing, but that's ok with me.

Soon I'm going to Jewell's graduation. Three days later Hannah and I are heading to South Bend for Road Trip '10. I'm going to see The Black Keys. I'm going to a bachelorette party at a Cardinal's game.

This is certainly shaping up to be a wonderful summer!
