If we were having coffee, we’d acknowledge that it’s been awhile since we last met up. I’ve been working 25 hour weeks while going to school full-time (plus doing side projects–you know me) and this blog has fallen a bit by the wayside. I’ve managed to keep up book reviews, and I did a series of Amsterdam travel posts, but I haven’t been good at keeping up with reading people’s blogs.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that this week was my school’s spring break. My boyfriend invited me to come home with him to Long Island, so off I went to the land of bagels and pizza and rounded vowels. We had a wonderful week–his family is so nice, we ate a lot of delicious food (although I’m not actually that into their pizza, much to his chagrin), and I got to laugh at photos of him when he was little. We also spent an afternoon at the beach and did a day trip to visit our friend Tori in New Jersey. And we watched a lot of basketball.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’ve gotten caught up in March Madness. I’ve never been a huge sports-watcher–I wasn’t raised with it, which means I never know who to root for (in anything but college football, that is, since I’m an Oregon Ducks girl). But the boyfriend convinced me to make a bracket for the NCAA basketball tournament, so I now have my team picks to support.
And who would’ve thought I’d turn out to LOVE IT? He’s mystified at my extremely quick transformation into a basketball super fan. Then again, it’s mostly my competitive side coming out. I desperately want my bracket to beat his, which is looking likely since his pick for the tournament winner lost in the very first round.
If we were having coffee, I’d ask for your update. Since we haven’t talked in a while, tell me what’s new!
