...and then I will be shipping off to beautiful Miami with Rob and some friends the day after graduation to celebrate.
...and then off to take granddaddy exam and 4 hours later I will officially be Kasey Anderson, RN (hopefully). Oh and there will be some studying in between all of that but it makes me nervous to mention it.
Once I graduate I plan on the following: observing the cultural differences between Houston and Austin via restaurants and shopping facilities, finally freaking learning how to sew, choosing a few new friends to replace the homeless man in the dumpster outside who never fails to keep me company on cold, dark mornings. Maybe cooking dinner again...I don't know, I don't want to get too crazy too soon. Embracing the 100 degree, 100% humidity which will be sure to lend my hair to fit in with the rest of the Houston crowd, learning how to incorporate phrases like "fixin to" and "up the street, there" into my every day vocab and finally, something I've needed to spend some time on for a while now...learn how to read a map. I never know where I am. Ever. Am I north, south, east, west...really? I have no idea. I'm going somewhere, on some street and who knows to be sure if I'm even in the same state. It's sad really, and I mean for me, because I feel so sad when I am lost ALL the time. I'm determined to minimize the amount of time I spend wandering the highways of Houston every day. And maybe you think, no, thats a great way to learn how to get around, WRONG. I'm not scared to drive the same street every day for 3 days in a row and still not make the connection that it is in fact, the same street, ever time. I'm so ashamed.
