Rewind & Review #34

Rewind & Review

The first week after that last Rewind & Review was hectic. I had four exams and a presentation and I was very much looking forward to spring break. But my art history prof decided it would be a brilliant idea to assign a ton of reading and work over break, thus cancelling out the break part. I have a speech to work on for intro to communications, too, but that's going to be about Taylor Swift, so it's no hardship.
I managed to get a fair amount of reading done over spring break and I went to see Cinderella with my mom and Insurgent with Kate. I also had to start packing up some of my room because...in late May or June we're moving. Yup, that's right. My dad has a new job so we're moving back to Virginia. I'm excited and sad at the same time because I'm leaving all of my friends here and a great indie bookstore and the place where I've spent the last eight and a half years of my life. But we're moving back to a place where my parents have lots of friends, and it's where my very best friend lives, and we won't have to deal with awful winters anymore. I'll be in the same state as a lot of cool authors, and Washington, D.C. gets some good authors on tour.
