I’m getting packed for taking my sister to college.
In this last week before she’s left, it’s gotten super sad; I’m all sorts of big sister emotions about her leaving for college. She’s going to have a great time, but selfish me wants her to stick around. I’ll be alone at home with the rents for two weeks smothered by their love and attention- where’s the other sibling to spread it out?!
This morning we went to the No Sweat Cafe for the third weekend in a row. Except, this time, it was our last time for a few months. We were both sort of silent, and I didn’t know what to say. I wanted to cry and tell her not to go, but I also wanted to tell her to cut loose and have a great time. I might have done both, just not in those words or actions.
Also spent time at the confectionery this week, and hanging around the downtown area. Our Gothic cathedral is surprisingly legitimate and I walked around inside thoroughly impressed. However, it must be known that our cathedral’s exterior plans and probably interior plans are copied almost exactly from a cathedral in France. So, it’s coolness is either downgraded or upgraded, depending on how you see this forgery.
