Annnnd I am off again bright and early tomorrow morning! I'm going upstate this weekend to visit my alma mater for Founder's Day. It's really just an excuse for the students (and alums!) to spend a day wasted and outside in the beautiful spring weather. Complete with a beer truck, carnival rides, food stands, and live music all day long. Every year has a different theme. My favorite theme was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory sophomore year, when I wandered around in a haze marveling at the colorful fake candy sticking out of the ground. I can't believe that was five years ago! Makes me feel like I'm getting old.
This is only my second time visiting since I graduated. I booked a room in a hotel that's within walking distance so I can stumble home at the end of the day. I'm. So. Excited. Can you tell? Now I'm just checking the weather forecast every hour and praying it doesn't rain (currently morning showers followed by afternoon clouds are predicted, which I guess I can live with.)
