Summer has gone by so fast! I will be moving down to Memphis in three weeks, with orientation is in less than four weeks. I received my final acceptance from SCO, so it looks like they still want me there, and I'm still excited to go. I've been getting lots of important info in the past few weeks regarding registration, orientation, and events and it's all helping me to get excited. I knew there was a White Coat Ceremony at the end of September, but was pleasantly surprised to learn how elaborate the weekend will be. I've already been told by my aunt, uncle, mom, dad and sister that they are coming down, so I'm looking forward to showing off my new home and school so early into the fall.
I spent last weekend in Ann Arbor, the home of my undergraduate University. It was nice to roam the streets that I had grown to know and love in my four years on the campus. I went to my favorite restaurants, ate way too much food and drank way too much coffee, revisiting all of the places that I frequented so often during exams and other study sessions. I drove past my freshman year dorm and was so glad that despite returning to school, I'm not moving back into a shared room with a public bathroom used by all 14 people in my hall. (In Memphis, I'll have my own bathroom for the first time ever!)
So with things basically set in Memphis, other than a bed, kitchen table or any other furniture for my room, I'm enjoying my last few weeks of fun and rest at home in Northern Michigan. Right now the city is having the Traverse City Film Festival, led by Michael Moore, and I've seen more than my fair-share of new and unique movies. The festival ends tonight and I'm off to see a french movie at midnight to make the most of it. I hope everyone enjoys the last few weeks of summer!
