It is hard to believe that I am already heading home. It has been a whirlwind past few days and I am realizing that finding downtime, even when on break, is tough to do. I tried avoiding my e-mail for a day to give myself a much needed break. Well, that worked for that day. But, then yesterday it was IUGA and 370 that commanded the majority of my attention for the afternoon and evening.
One thing I did happen to watch on T.V., when in between stuff to do, was the MN State High School Football 5A championship. It was a good game between Wayzata and Minnetonka. The high school I used to go to, Eden Prairie, has made their fair share of apperances at the championship game and they are a blast to go to. There’s nothing like playing football late at night in the dome to screaming fans and the sound of the band. It’s hard to forget.
But, I have now reached the end of my stay in Minnesota. It has been great to be back, if only for a short while. I had some good food and had good times with the fam. Now it is back to my Seattle Reality and trying to finish off strong at the end of this quarter. It is also how funny I really miss my friends and my place in Seattle. Never really felt like this before. *tear*
However, I’ll be back to Minnesota in a few weeks for Christmast and I can only hope that they have snow. I think I’ve had one brown Christmas. It is hard to imagine Christmas without it. As I write this it is currently snowing and the ground is all white. It is much better than seeing it rain.
It will be interesting to see where I end up in a year when I look back at this holiday season. In the past it has been much of the same stuff and filled with certanity. Now I don’t really have an idea what I will be doing in a year. Will it be a job? Grad school? I really don’t know. All I know is that in 2 hours I will be at the airport and taking a flight back to the reality that awaits me in Seattle. However, it is a reality that I am willing to take on and embrace.
