A Summer Away from Bloomington...

Hey everyone!

It's finally summer. The time I have been waiting for. I moved out of Teter Wissler less than a week ago, (see picture) and couldn't wait to say goodbye to dorm living (as much as I loved my roommate and Teter itself, apartment living is calling my name.) Anyway, I couldn't wait to be home to start relaxing and making some money. One problem...

I already miss Bloomington. :(

Don't get me wrong, this break from school is going to be absolutely amazing, considering I plan on taking summer classes next summer (which I have heard are awesome, by the way.) But home is so quiet; nothing like the bustling city of Bloomington I have learned to call home. What I would give to be able to walk to Kirkwood for lunch right now!

Incoming students, wait until you see all that Bloomington has to offer. When people call it the world's greatest college town, they aren't kidding. It's impossible to be bored there. I'm finding my time at home peaceful, but definitely not as eventful!

To all of you still in B'town, make a Red Mango trip for me! You are being sorely missed. 

See you all in the fall!
