So....I'm done. With college. Wow.

Finals went well (as far as I know). Papers got finished, though I did have to sacrifice sleep. A lot of sleep.

I'm scheduled for 27 hours of check-outs this week, so we'll see how that goes.

I went to the MOA today with fb to celebrate....got an adorable outfit for my pre-graduation dinner. I can't believe that I'm finished!! I'm really excited (rezacted?) for Hannah to be here. I know she is too. All my friends can't wait to meet her, because I basically talk about her all the time.

I'm just now realizing how much stuff I have. And this is after giving away a huge trash bag full of clothes. I think I could fill a suitcase with my toiletries alone! Okay, I'm exaggerating, but not by much.
In other news, farmboy and I went to see Keane Friday night. I don't really listen to them, but I knew songs because fb and Scott play them a lot (Scott saw them in France earlier this year). They were absolutely amazing. I don't know what they do to his voice on the CDs, but live it is honestly one of the best voices I've ever heard. They're a British band, so they all have adorable accents. How do I know this? Because I got to meet them!!

That's right. I know my glamorous lifestyle may be overwhelming you right now. But seriously, John and I stood around in the freezing cold (literally. freezing. it hit 31 degrees that night. why?!?) in t-shirts because we hadn't planned on meeting them. Then they came out, and the keyboardist complimented John on his U2 shirt (have I mentioned that farmboy is obsessed with U2? He is.). John gave them all his business cards, so maybe his band will get discovered :).

I have rediscovered my love for Reed's Extra Ginger Brew All Natural Jamaican Style Ginger Beer! Good thing I didn't realize they sold it at Cub before this year, or I would have been even MORE broke all through college!


  1. We are counting down the hours here! Can't wait to get there!

  2. Congratulations Kate!! I read your Mom's blog and live in MN, I can't wait to actually meet your mom and sister!! Just wanted to say Congratulations!!! This is a huge accomplishment!!!

  3. Congratulations, Katie!

    I don't mean to stalk you on your blog. My daughter hates it when her mom's friends track her down on Facebook. It is just the price you pay for having such cool moms!

    I have really enjoyed hearing about your adventures. I think the PC will be awesome! I can't wait to hear more about that in the future. But be careful over there. (Sorry, Mom Mode kicked in.)
