Hiiiiiiiii. So maybe you’re like “ANGELA WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?” Or maybe you’re like “Meh I don’t care.” (Although, if you don’t care… why are you reading?)
Let me tell ya, it’s been a crazy two weeks over here, and I’ve love almost every minute of it. Let me show you what I’ve been up to lately.
The first weekend of April brought Mom’s Weekend. We had so much fun frolicking around Athens and went to a few of my favorite places. On the tour was Della Zona (pizza), which you’ve seen before, Shade Winery, Purple Chopstix, a Loni Love comedy show (seriously hilar), diner breakfast, and froyo!
This was my first visit to the winery, and I loved it! I wish I’d been 21 sooner because this place is gorgeous. Glad I got to experience it with my momma ❤
Purple Chopstix has a great outdoor area out back, so we took advantage of that for pictures. My girls!
Me and mom!
Last week, we had senior sendoff for the magazine I work with here. They gave out senior superlatives, and I doubled over laughing when they read mine. It’s pretty spot on.
Aaaaand that’s where my week kind of went downhill. On Tuesday night, I was up all night so, so sick. I guess I caught a stomach bug somehow because I had a fever, fatigue, and stomach issues. It was terrible! I don’t remember the last time I was that kind of sick. Basically from Wednesday through Friday, I stayed in my bed either sleeping or watching television. By Friday, I was feeling a lot better, thankfully. I was pretty sick of eating jello and toast at that point!
But then my week went uphill again! I really hoped I’d be better for the weekend because I’d already bought a ticket to Number Fest (#Fest), this year also known as 12Fest. Basically, it’s a music festival in a huge field that super muddy and crazy. It was my first real time going (better late than never, huh?). The day was sunny and warm – perfect for the fest.
We were there for probably five hours, with our night ending after Wiz Khalifa performed! I was excited to see him since he’s from Pittsburgh, and I used to listen to his stuff with my friends all freshman year. It came full circle. He was actually really great and put on a fun show. 🙂
Not sure how we did it, but the next morning, even though we were so tired, we were up at 6:30 so that I could go see my friends Kaitlyn and Kellie run the Athens Half Marathon. I was so proud of both of them! Kaitlyn PR’d, and Kellie finished 3rd in her age group. Rockstarzzzz.
It’s been a great two weeks. I’m going to be posting normally again now – just needed a little break from everything, ya know?
I officially have 20 days left until graduation.I’ve been reading all kinds of “this is how post-grad is blah blah” articles, and most of them say that there will be a moment when the fact that you’re leaving will hit you. You won’t expect it. That happened for me yesterday morning, and I cried a little bit. Luckily I had my sunglasses on, and there was no one around to see the crazy crying girl. I was thinking about my time here yesterday as I was snapping pictures waiting for the race to finish. Everything was so peaceful and quiet, and it reminded me why I came here in the first place. Athens is a special town.
