I had gotten to the point where I was updating everyday, but I slacked off this weekend. Why? Because I was in Buffalo frolicking with MAREgred, a.k.a my twin, whose parents are lovely and whose life is amazing. I had so much fun. This mini-vacation is exactly what I needed. I needed to get out of the Capital Region.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I am having a BLAST this summer. I love working for The Gazette more than anything, and I’m having a lot of fun working on my stuff for the orientation issue of The Spectrum, but it’s been really hard to see my friends so far. They are either not home for the summer, work opposite schedules as me, or work just as much as I do. I mean, when I work my second job after The Gazette I get home around 10 p.m. By then I’m exhausted and all I feel like doing most of the time is curling up on my bed and reading for approximately 20 minutes until I pass out. I have been out to movies with some friends, and I met a few for coffee one night and I have had a lot of fun with my friends when I see them but I desperately needed the break to go out to Buffalo and just have some fun.
I guess I’m still just not used to the fact that we’re pretty much an adults and that responsibilities come before everything else, especially this summer when I need to build my resume, start my 100-page thesis, save a lot of money, and prepare for the GREs that I’m taking in August. Sigh. Growing up blows sometimes. This less than stellar summer is only going to make next semester be so much more fun though.
ANYWAY, when I was in Buffalo, Meg and I hatched some pretty awesome plans for our post-graduation tour of Europe, our post-graduation apartment in NYC, and our summer excursion to NYC. We’re also starting a collective blog where we visit and rate all of the bars in Buffalo on a super-secret, super hilarious rating system that I am not announcing to the public just yet.
Basically, I really love my life right now. I’m perfectly happy with how everything is going and because of all the clips and experience I’m gaining at The Gazette this summer, I am more than confident that if I do well enough on the GREs, my portfolio and my GPA will get me into NYU’s graduate program and that I’ll get the fellowships I want.
I’m so excited, but I do miss my MAREgred…Sigh…ya can’t have it all. 🙂
