okay now, i'm updating y'all ... on my phone so perhaps this will be short. i made it safely to my grandparents in new mexico. everything went routinely and my grandfather was there to pick me up at the airport, along with my cousin, Aubrey, whom we have determined i've never met in person. she's promised to be my tour guide here.
i have already taken her up on it!
i'll tell you more about Aubrey later!
as I wrote previously, i am leaving the sightseeing plans to my family, but one such event has already become clear ... in a couple of short days, my own little butt will be sitting in four -- count 'em ... four states! we're going to the four corners, probably saturday or maybe sunday!
i know i said things went routinely, but there was a minor incident at my one hour and five minute layover in phoenix.
i wandered into a giftshop and browsed through t-shirts, finding a section of shirts featuring the phoenix suns, and specifically Amar'e Stoudimire (who has since bolted phoenix for new york). being a good trail blazers fan, i rolled my eyes. this kid working there asked if i had a problem with the suns.
i said 'no, i'm looking forward to knocking them out of the playoffs this year (i didn't even tell him who my team is!)!'
i walked out of the giftshop feeling triumphant.
- 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.
