And he’s ok

14 Jun

So I realized that my last post was quite ominous. Turn’s out Gav’s ok. He went from the ICU to home in 24 hours. They think he was bleeding from the site where they took a biopsy from his colon, but it’s stopped and everything’s all good.

In other news, I had a graduation party on Saturday. Thanks to everyone who could make it. It was fun to get together — even though we had to nix the lawn games on account of the rain. I think I’ve been asked about a thousand times how it feels to be done with school. To answer, it doesn’t really feel much different. I’ve taken every summer off before this, so it feels natural not to be in school. When I get back from Thailand I’ll be applying to grad school (which is nearly as bad as going to school). I’m not sure when it’s really going to sink in. Maybe it never will because I have another few years of college on the horizon.
Graduation itself was pretty lackluster. Long and boring actually. Scratch that. Very long and very boring. But my family all came to support me, which is why I love them so much. I appreciated it an extra lot because there had been so much family drama that week. Gav was in the hospital and my grandmother died. Then I had graduation and Angela’s wedding that weekend. Lots to do in a very short amount of time.
Ange’s wedding was amazing. The rain stopped just in time for the reception. I was amazed at how many people showed up in 40s clothes. It really set the stage for an awesome night. Now that they’re married things don’t really feel any different (which is a good thing). I’m glad to have married friends that aren’t going to disappear after the wedding.
Aside from all that, all I’ve been doing is working, trying to study for the GRE and having all kinds of fun before I leave. The fam’s going camping this weekend, so I can check that off my list of things to do. Other list items include: going to Lagoon, having a bbq, acing the GRE, eating an Apollo burger and fries, cleaning my room, getting a blueberry and coconut snowcone from Bob’s Brainfreeze, hot tubbing, watching fireworks, finishing dad’s company website and going out for sushi.

    And don't forget Roger's birthday BBQ at your parents house…. without your parents. :)Hey Chel, my friend got her grad degree from University of Maryland. She loved, loved, loved it there. She says they have a terrific library science graduate program. What's not to love about Washington DC? And they paid her to go to school… You should check into the University of Maryland so I can come visit. I mean really, who wants to visit Seattle?
