keep truckin

The following is an email I received on Friday while printing a paper right before class.

Hi Lauren:
This is to let you know that you have been placed at Murcia for next fall. Your placement still has to be confirmed, but this is a great first step.

Bahhh!!! Oh my gosh!!  It may not seem like much, but I almost cried.  I definitely yelled, and most certainly hugged people near me (that I knew... I'm not that weird) til they couldn't breathe.

But yeah, that was neat. Things are pretty much stellar beyond that.  Classes are rad.  I think I dominated my first Core test, radio show is extremely ballin' and we're learning a sweet routine in my ballet class.  I have overflowing amounts of reasons to smile right now.  Oh and I get to go home Thursday (3 day weekend, word app!) and it will be awesome.  I haven't seen my mommy since before Hawaii!! Yippee!

Here's a few iphone photos of life/babysitting.

Oh and this is a photo from a Richland High basketball game.  Bombers vs. Blue Devils.  That's my brother dressed up like Jesus, with a pack of angels.  It's possible I've never been more proud.

being back

So I'm back! No more references from Hawaii-I may end up crying if I think about how much I miss it sunshine and beach on the daily!
The weekend I was back the fam and I took a quick jaunt up to Seattle. My dad and I rocked matching shirts at the WSU-UW game. Yeah, that was a trip but we ended up winning. GO DAWGS!
After that I hung out with Brent and we sauntered over to the Jemina Pearl concert I'd been crapping myself to see. IT WAS AWESOME. I hugged her, told her I love her, then her and the rest of the band signed my iphone case. Yes I cried. Embrace that fact and love me more because of it.
That's her signing my phone, and that's my hand shaking uncontrollably. Rad.
Now back to school! Classes are pretty neat. I love theories of human communication. Da best! Also, radio started back up so I can stop gushing to everyone how badly I miss it. That's Adam and I getting hyped and being mega queso-y.
That's a huge dog I met this week. His name is Grant and he's cool.

Other than that things have been pretty laid back. My passport came this week (woo) but 8 more weeks til I hear back from foreign exchange people. I WANT TO GO SO BAD! I cannot wait. The new Vampire Weekend CD is getting me through this for now, so I'm hoping I'll be fine.
Salutations and I hope everyone is doing well! I miss everyone a ton right now, so imagine a great big Valentine's Day hug from me. Muah!
