Also since I've been in the interior design program I have learned so much about what makes up "good design". There are so many amazing places so close to my house that I haven't taken advantage of. I just feel like being all artsy and going to museums and admiring architecture....I might not be able to get all the way up to Seattle, but there are several museums in Tacoma like 10 minutes from home.
Even though I am excited to visit all the things in Washington...I mostly can't wait to see all the people! This is my first semester not living with someone from the FW (one of my roommates is from Puyallup...but that doesn't count), so I don't have that everyday connection back to home. (don't worry though...my roommates are still AMAZING!). So I can't wait to see my family and my friends....cause they all pretty much rock! Plus a VanderHoeven Machine Thanksgiving is something to wait all year for! I guess I'm just lucky that I was already born into the machine....it really ups my cool status by about 5 points. Anyway...I just wanted to share in my excitement since I should be home in approximately 30 or so hours!
