Life I love you, all is groovy..


My GS Troop at Grove Point in MD

Things are winding down for school this year. Tomorrow is my last day of classes and I am taking 3 of my 4 finals in class tomorrow. My last final is a random day in May (actually, it's the day you fly to NC, Lindsey!!! ..less than 2 weeks!!!) I can't wait to be completely finished with school this year. Our director was supposed to call me at 11:30 today to do my interview for C**p Ho**er, but she never called. She's supposed to call now at 2:45, but I have to babysit at 3... and I think the interview is going to take longer than 15 minutes. We'll see. But, assuming that I have a job for the summer at Camp H**ver, I am really excited about it. The picture I posted is of most of my girl scout troop (two missing) at our camp in Maryland. Girl Scouts was never earning badges or making fires once we got to high school. It was just us 8 girls who met once a month and hung out, talked about the sports we were playing, the vacations we were taking, the boys we liked, the colleges we were applying to and being accepted to. It makes me kind of sad, actually, that I don't get to see those girls anymore. Even though we went to different schools (3 at Brandywine, 3 at Concord, 2 at Charter) we basically grew up together. Anyways, I'm just excited to be a part of something GS-related again. I think I told Em wayyy before we started dating that I'd love to work at her camp. I've always wanted to do something like that.

Tomorrow Virginia Tech Women's Lacrosse takes on UNC @ Chapel Hill. I would LOVE to go, but I have class during the game. However, if they win, they play Duke on Friday, so I'm definitely going to that. A friend of mine plays lax at VTech, Kristen Burtch. I played lacrosse with her in high school, she's a year older than me. Hopefully they beat UNC so that I can see them BEAT Duke! I love that all of my friends who play sports come to NC to play. Greensboro is so central that I can basically get anywhere. Amy Williams came down with UConn for field hockey last semester, and I'm sure Meredith Nelles will make her way to NC or atleast play a team from NC up in College Park.

I was reading a livejournal today of a friend of a friend, and she was talking about Philly and how she hung out there the other day... and it makes my heart ACHE for Philadelphia. Living so close growing up, we were constantly in Philly for field trips to the Franklin Institute, the Philadelphia Zoo, the Please Touch Museum, and then when I got older, wandering around the city, riding the El (Oh SEPTA...) being at CHOP and UPenn Hospitals.. and of course, the many adventures made to South Street and the surrounding areas. I miss having a huge city at the tip of my fingers, just a 20 minute drive from my house.

I really should be studying for my THREE exams tomorrow. I have to babysit this evening 3-6, so I guess I'll be up pretty late. I promised myself last night that I was going to study today before babysitting, so that I could get some of it out of the way, but I'm not very good at promises made to myself. :)

Love everywhere,
Kristen
