born in a barn

065b

It's Friday! Which actually should have no significance to me since I'm not working, but today it does. I've started my GRE prep course this week which is twice a week and for some reason, it just ended up being a really busy week, tying up loose ends with school, pre-work things, trying to see everyone and figuring out the summer. All great things, but yesterday I started to wig a little, it was like ok everything, just stop! So today I have dubed "my day, my way Friday". I'm not planning on hanging out with anyone, so it'll just be me for company.

I'm going to lay around and read Never Let me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. It's really, really good so far, I'd definitely recommend it if you're looking for a summer read. I'm eating lunch with my dad at one of his favorite places for his diet reward meal! He's reached 30 lbs lost so this is like getting a gold star on your chart, but way better haha.

And then this weekend I'm off to see family in PA and we're visiting Falling Water tomorrow which I'm super, super psyched about. I don't know all that much about architecture but as a type of art, I can definitely appreciate it. I did learn alot more than I'd known before in Barcelona studying Gaudi (Sagrada Familia, Casa Battló, Casa Mila, Casa Pedrera, Parc Guell, etc). You can learn a little bit about Casa Battló and/or la Sagrada Familia at The Clothes Horse, Rebecca's Euro-triping right now, I'm so jealous. Maybe soon I'll post a Barcelona nostalgic entry, what do you guys think?

I love the 2nd and 3rd photos soooo much! And red barns are basically my favorite, so this post is absolutely delightful. :)

I would loooove to see some of your photos from Spain! :) Oh, funny story. So after I read your email about Falling Waters, I thought you said "Andrew Lloyd Webber" instead of Wright, and Lloyd Webber is one of my heroes, so I started freaking out that you got to go on a tour of his house. I googled "Andrew Lloyd Webber Falling Waters" and got really weird stuff. So I looked back at your email and realized I misread it, haha. Even though it isn't Lloyd Webber's house, it still looks reallyreallyreally cool. :)
