such is life

I used to think the worst thing would be to drown but now I think dying from heat is possibly worse. This is the worst season for my allergies/skin.

Anywho, to catch up-
I went to Chicago for a week with my sis to help her go apt hunting for her move. I never want to see another apt for a long time, and I am not overly fond of Chicago though it's not a bad place either. I don't want to think how much I'll miss her while she's away =(

Had an old school get together which was cool. Caught up and reminisced about the old days, no one has changed much and it's nice to know we can all be pretty comfortable with each other. But then people who have seen you through your most awkward time are like that.

Currently over at yuki's, sleeping over yet again since it's too late to trust the streets walking home and the bus doesn't come often enough. Went with the asian girl gang for the midnight book release of the new Harry Potter. Not that I'm overly eager about it, haven't even read the last one but it was cool to hang out. Did a lot of walking back and forth to the bookstore, only to find out it closed and they said to come back in the morning >=\

I saw Andrew at the bookstore as I passed the window, and yuki confirmed it. However I stayed away and our paths did not cross. I have the worst luck that way. But then we were across from his school, so I suppose I should've known better. I am curious to know who the girl he was with was, but not enough to risk him seeing me. That wasn't one of my better social choices.

I'm trying to fig out what I want to do for fall/spring. If nothing else then I'd like to take courses at the student art league. Unfortunately all the art programs don't start til fall and it's too late to apply for this year (and get a portfolio together). I'm leaning towards illustration though I still have serious doubts about my talents, it's worth trying at least. But next fall feels so far away, like if I don't do it now, I'm never going to follow through. Of course I would be trying in the field where I am the most self-conscious nevermind imagining making a career out of it.

We're driving down, and staying @ the Mariott Courtyard next to Baltimore Airport - all hotels IN the city are rediculously prices (try $300/night!) the one we're at is $109/night, which isn't bad split between the 4 of us who are going. i recommend trying to find a hotel outside baltimore that has shuttle service to the city, there are a quite a few of them.

who are you all going as, if you go?

ps. i hate commenting, lol, so email me lindsayburdick@gmail.com
