We have so much to talk about . . .

This is gonna be a long one. Sorry that it has taken me so long to post. But I have been BUSY busy. Guess who is a grad student now? Yep, it's totally me. This week I have been attending my bridge class at the U. I am getting my masters in social work and because I have my BSW, I can get my masters in one year, but I have to take a week long course (this week). So Tomorrow is my last day of my first week of grad school. Exciting. I quit my job last Friday and tomorrow is my last day of school until the 25th of August, so I have an entire month to be free free free. What should I do? Any suggestions? I plan to read a lot, but think an awesome trip should be added to the plan. Don't you?

Tonight was the free concert at the Gallivan Center. Josh Ritter and Andrew Bird performed and it was awesome. I got out of class and took trax to the Gallivan center so that I could save a nice spot for everyone I knew and then some. I got there at 4:30 and was able to see Josh Ritter's sound check. He played some extra songs just for the few of us sitting there. It was nice. I took a few pictures, along with this video of a cool, old and possibly drunk guy dancing. It was hot outside, but I'm so glad I was there early.

The best song of all though was when Josh Ritter sang Best is for the Best during the sound check. It spoke to me and I needed it.

Andrew Bird was really good too. He can whistle like no other and I boogied a bit. Here are some pictures from the night.

Here's Josh. If I wasn't sure I would be arrested, I probably would have tried to kiss him on his cute scruffy face.

Here is Jesse dipping me, sorta against my will. But I still love him.

My boobs look large in the next one. I am just saying.

I was glad to hang with Breckan and Spencer for a bit too. It's just nice to be around them.

I really love summer.
