So I'm in the Syracuse airport, waiting for my plane to take me to NYC for a quick visit with Kasey. Just a day, but I'll take anything I can get at this point. My mom had some frequent flyer miles that were going to expire so she just gave them to me to use. Which is pretty freaking sweet.

Anyway. No real news to report. Surprisingly this semester so far has not been terrible. Depite my best efforts to completely blow off schoolwork, I have A averages in Media Layout, Comm Ethics, AND my Eng 400 seminar. SHOCKING I know... My internship is pass fail but I think I have to start being productive for that class because those people will be great references if I get them to like me haha.

I also need to get cracking on resumes and applications for jobs, programs, and internships for the summer. I think that if I have something in place for the summer then my mom will be way more likely to be helpful and accommodating with the whole move into the city. So that really should be a top priority for me. Next week for sure.

Lately I've been flip flopping between two emotional extremes. I feel like I'm so excited to be moving to the city, and just wish that it was tomorrow. for the most part, I think that my education at Le Moyne is complete. I'm of course still learning, but for the most part I'm learning things that I could just be teaching myself. and I think just being in a job will be way more educational than anything I'm doing right now. So I just wish that these next two and a half months would fly by and I feel like nothing.

On the other hand, I found a CD of all of these scanned pictures of friends and family from when I was little and I put them on facebook. And as a result reconnected with a bunch of kids from elementary school, because everyone kept tagging eachother in pictures. PLUS I feel like I'm finally in a place with my friendships that seems healthy and functional and I really don't know what I'm going to do in the city without them. Mos of them plan on moving down to the city after graduation, and Eileen (one of the besties) plans on moving in withme and kasey after she gets her masters in education. But that's still 3 years down the road. It's just a depressing thought.

My parents work in Kentucky for the most part (they're computer programmers--so sometimes they just work from home in Syracuse). My grandfather was diagnosed with cancer about a month ago, so my mom will be staying in the SYR for awhile longer, but my dad is leaving on monday. and we counted the amount of days I would get to see him. 12. 12 more days. And those aren't like 12 days where I'm with him all the time. Lots of that will be me going to class or working most of that day. I was telling a lot of my friends and they were like yeah well that's more than I ever see my dad. And I know they have a point, but my dad is one of my best friends and he's the one person I know I'm going to miss most when I move. Moreover, he's NOT a phone person. urgh. It's just really sad to me. Something I have to deal with and just a part of growing up I know.

Flights about to board, so I guess that's all. I'll post about the trip (with pictures?) on Monday... maybe tomorrow night.

<3 Erin

Have fun in NYC!

if it makes you feel better, actual work things are kicking my ass, and I'm just getting grades out of pure luck. It's not like I'm sitting at home watching movies or out getting drunk all the time. When I'm not doing schoolwork, I'm working or sleeping haha.

Thanks, today was a lot of fun--more on that tomorrow night!

Yes, that makes me feel way better. I'm just kidding, I wish I had a job. Although, I get snowed in about 3months out of the year, but my employer would totally understand right?
