born in a barn
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?
What are you all doing for Memorial Day weekend? Something relaxing and/or fun I hope! Until Monday :)
