A Farewell to Maps

Hello all,

I kind of dropped the ball on this, my bad. It's been a while since I got back to Houston and I am finally getting around to putting one last post on here, ya know, for closure.

June in Houston, wish it were a little hotter (no I don't). My first day back we went straight from the airport to a Tex-Mex restaraunt, so it was a sweet homecoming. Yeah, the food here has kept me pretty busy, that and getting into all kinds of trouble. Actually I just started my summer internship so I've been going to bed at like 9:30 every night, don't worry Mom.

I am CONSTANTLY thinking about and remembering TBB and the amazing friends I made this year. I love them all to pieces. Not an hour goes by when something doesn't remind me of them. I want to sing "If I Ain't Got You" by Alicia Keys loudly (and badly) with them again, I want to laugh at Chris's little plushie toys again, I want to be in Atahualpa grumbling about the walk down to the center of town with the North Shore Fatties, I want to gawk at the beach-goers in Plettenberg bay. And I really want some of that Indian coffee cake again...

I try to keep everything I learned this year in mind in my daily life. It's been a little bit of an adjustment being home and trying to slip right back into things but it's nice to be back with the old friends and family (or at least Patrick, till the Parisians come home). I'm excited to head off to college in the fall. St. Louis... I guess I'll be needing maps again.

Ha, see what I did there? Maps? Badwithmaps?

Thanks for keeping up with me this year! 

Love from
