This week, I'm back to my beloved flyover zone for some meetings, research in the library, and catching up with friends at the university. This week will be low on posts for two reasons: I have a lot to get done; and I can't fit my camera (or really many clothes) in my bag because I have to save space for all the books I need check out! A girl's got to have her priorities straight, right?
One funny thing I've been thinking about: It's the first time I've been back to the midwest and my home university since I moved to DC and I am so excited for my trip. Four years ago (in my first year of grad school), I remember visiting my sister in California for spring break and when I landed back in Chicago to gray, drizzly, wintery-mix skies, I burst into tears on the runway. If you had told me that just a few years later, I'd be over the moon with excitement as I flew back over those cornfields, I never would've believed you. I'm amazed at how much has changed in the past five years, and I'm looking forward to DC eventually feeling as much like home as the midwest came to feel.
See you next week!
