Moving Out and Bucket List #5

Well, today round 1 of moving out occurred. My mom and brother drove over and we filled the car completely with boxes, suitcases, a guitar and my entire collection of nail polishes. I am still living in my dorm, as I still have two more finals to get through, but it's crazy to think we stuffed the car to the brim and I still have four or so more boxes to go! Next year I'll pack lighter--I'll know what to expect, what I'll need and what exactly I can mooch off of my friends!

So many boxes...
The suite is a mess right now. Everyone is filling boxes for storage, there are shoes all over the place and somehow, someway, bottles and bottles of laundry detergent have taken over our desks...?

I don't even know.

Anyway, all this moving out stuff has made me nostalgic for the moving in days. It seemed like such a short time ago.

With four months of summer vacation looming ahead and my brain completely unable to focus on studying for finals, I've been daydreaming a lot about what I want to do and how I will fill my days in-between freshman and sophomore year.

First off, I'm going to read. Everything and anything I want. I mean it. I will become a reading machine. A reading monster. No one will stop me.

I'm going to sleep. I'm going to cook, bake, write, run, tan, dog-walk, sing, dive in a pool and be with my family. I will sit outside at night and just think.

Which leads me to make an addition to my bucket list:

Bucket List #4: Sleep on a rooftop in the city.

I may not see very many stars, but I love the feeling I get when I sit back and watch the city around me, particularly during the nighttime.

This is from last summer, when we went on a boat tour with friends who were visiting... It was a spur-of-the-moment thing, and sure the tour was absolutely cheesy, but it ended up being one of my most favorite summer memories.


happy almost-weekend!
