End of one, and the Beginning of another
Today was my last day at my internship (You now can all go out and purchase the Sept/Oct issue of THE IOWAN magazine!!). It was bittersweet. I was really sad that my main editor was not there (Jill) because she's one of the sweetest, kindest people I've ever met. After I left, I picked up my check for writing at The CornFed Iowan magazine (you should pick one of those up tooÂif it ever hits the stands). My time is now leading toward my last year (plus one extra semester) of college. Senior year!! I was driving by campus, all of the freshies were hauling their shit up to their rooms with their whole families. Today is a very exciting day for all of them. I remember on my first day of college, Nancy (my beautiful black SAAB) died as we pulled onto the Ylvi lawn. So, my mom had to grab a taxi to go pick my dad up from the airport (because he flew his plane up so he and my mom could get home quickly), and left me to unpack all of my shit by myself. My roommate, Erin, showed up a little later with her parents and a huge roll of carpet. I was incredibly nervous and scared shitless of her and her family. All I wanted was for my parents to show upÂwhich they didn't until what seemed like 5 hours later! Needless to say, I was the biggest bitch and Erin thought that she wouldn't even last the semester with me. Once my parents DID arrive, I calmed down, we laid carpet, and Erin and I werinseparablele for the rest of the year.
Oh the memories. I hope that this year is as good for these guys as mine was for me.
