I can’t believe I’m moving to Texas SO SOON! I’ve boxed up most of my belongings. I’ve thrown away a couple dressers. I’m selling things on craigslist. I’m almost good to go. My official move-in date at my new apartment is August 11th, but I’ll be heading down to Texas a little earlier than that. But I’m moving out of my Philadelphia apartment next weekend, so that I can come to DC to spend some time with Nate.
Nate and I won’t see each other for a month and a half! That’s by far the most time we’ve had apart in three years and I am not happy about it. Nate will be moving down September 15.
The closer the move gets, the happier I am with my decision to attend law school at the University of Texas. I was deciding between UT, Cornell, and Vanderbilt. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have been all that happy at Cornell. Vandy would have been fun, but I’m really excited about living in Austin and getting the big football school experience, since I went to Penn for undergrad. I can’t believe I’m going to be a lawyer. Weird.
Anyway, here are some pictures of Austin and UT and Nate and I not looking as excited to be Longhorns as we are on the inside.
Status: Tomorrow, I’m leaving for Cincinnati with Nate and his family for their family reunion. So last night I went to the Bethesda library to stock up on books for the trip. I got The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart, Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty, and Betrayed by P.C. and Kristin Cast. (Yes, more YA. I write YA, I read YA–I can’t help loving it, so no apologies here.) Then, Nate took me to the bookstore and, though we were just going to look, he surprised me by buying Marked by P.C. and Kristin Cast and Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer. Now, there is only one copy of Eclipse between the two of us, so watch out!
Today, I’ve got to buckle down on SCOUT, so I can sent it out sometime next week or the following Monday by snail mail. Also, I’m feeling like I have ants in my pants. I started thinking about a submission I have out to an independent press that I love, love, love and I was just thinking how much I wanted an acceptance. Plus, I’m still waiting to hear from agents. How much can a girl take?
