    School's out!

    Well, it almost is. I have two more finals. But next week I'll be flying back to San Diego. I'm excited, I haven't been home in a year since I was unable to come home this summer due to an internship. I'm going to gorge myself on Carl's Jr. and all the other stuff they don't have here in TX. Gonna miss my bike though, guess I'm a jogger for a few weeks

    You are coming back to California and you want to gorge on Carl's Jr? For shame! In & Out is the only true path!
    I see hills.... Bring them on!!!
    Stay calm and bring a towel.

    There are Fatburgers in TX, and I've never been a fan of In & Out, though my brother loves the stuff. Actually, I'm also looking forward to Corvette's in Hillcrest if anyone knows of the place. Nothing like a burger with bacon and crunchy peanut butter. Mmmm.

    Yeah, we used to go to Corvette's all the time growing up. I usually ordered the S.O.B.

    Wow I am soooo glad not to have finals anymore. Congrats on making it through finals!

    Ha, enjoy it while you can. When you're grown up, it goes more like:

    You have 2 projects due on the same day, so you spend weeks doing them to the exclusion of everything else. After they're done, instead of going out and getting drunk and having 3 weeks off, you get to catch up on all the day to day stuff you've been blowing off while you were doing the projects.

    Still though, you'll also be getting paid.

    That brings back fond memories. Plus memories of being bored out of my mind, but thats a different story.
