cousin Laurie visits
i was very fortunate to have so many wonderful friends and family come to help celebrate my graduation from high school. both sets of grandparents visited, from nebraska and new mexico. my uncle Mike cousin Laurie came up from southern california.
Laurie and i have always been close, and have always been able to tell each other our deepest secrets and darkest desires. we do not judge each other. we've remarked several times at how our closeness is reflected in our commitment to not judge each other.
we had one final weekend before she had to return home, so we decided to let our wild sides out. now, i would never let my mom what either of us wore that last night, but we each turned quite a few eyes when we made it to the first party.
we were not looking to drink a lot, and i will never force Laurie to tell me what happened for that 45 minutes she disappeared with that guy (they were a cute couple, even if he was more 'mr right now' rather than 'mr. right!').
for my part, i never realized i was so adept at performing lap dances in front of relatively large groups! granted, both could probably be considered three-quarters of lap dances rather than the whole thing (not that the guys were too bothered at that).
Laurie and i hung out all night and it was quite wonderful seeing her again. much like i had during a visit to her town two years ago, she thanked me for a wonderful evening and terrific visit.
i love my cousin very much, and while i will miss her, i will always be close to her for the things we can share.
off to hawaii
it's somewhat of a tradition, and since i consider myself a traditionalist, i am taking a graduation trip to hawaii with my best friend, Shawna.
we've planned things out very well. being the creative one, Shawna is in charge of planning the sightseeing and activities; and being the analytical one, i overseeing the travel and accommodations.
i'm not sure what we will have in store for this trip, but we are poised to have a lot of fun. i will update this blog with some details later as they happen.
oh, and yes, i have sunscreen and a couple new bikinis ... what more could a girl need for a week in hawaii in the summer?!
ps: i will miss the nba draft, but i will get all the updates later that night. good luck blazers!
- i'm Kassandra an oregon girl at heart. recent college graduate. heading off to law school in summer of 2014. my parents are both u.s. army veterans and continue to serve in the military in other capacities. i have four brothers (two older, two younger) and three sisters (all younger). i love each of them for both their individuality and their commitment to the example set by our parents. aside from my family, i have several friends who mean a great deal to me, one as much as my best friend from high school. she's my kindred spirit and i would do anything for her. i would also do anything for Julie, my roommate for three of my four years of college and my best friend; she's amazing and it's wonderful to have shared this experience with her. i'm extremely strong in academics and tend to think of things in analytical terms. i'm open and honest. note: i'm interested in receiving feedback on this blog, but i request that the comments pertain to the actual blog itself, and i do not approve anonymous comments.
