New followers! Yay!

  The past week has been slightly busy, so I haven't had much time to blog, but here I am now and ready to tell you all about my fun filled weekend in Flagstaff and all the goodness that has happened so far this week. Also, I noticed that recently I've acquired a few new followers and just wanted to say hi to everyone and say thanks for reading.

   Anyways, on to the stories! Last weekend I drove up to Flagstaff and had the chance to stay with a very old family friend named Katy (I consider her more of a cousin then a friend) at her dorm at Cowden Hall at NAU. Since it was pretty late when we got back to her dorm, around 10 or 10:30, we decided to go to a mini grocery store/sandwich and pizza place on campus so that we could get a mini-pizza because after midnight Katy's meal plan would have expired for the week and she would have been out a "free" meal! After we got pizza we walked back to her dorm and watched a little bit of Zach and Miri (make a porno) and I fell fast asleep in her bed next to the open window with the cool breeze flowing in. However, at 7 a.m. I was rudely awakened by the alarm on my photo (I set it so technically it was my fault) and decided to rest a little bit more before convincing getting to get up so she could give me the campus tour before we had to be else where around 9:30. 

  Katy gave me a fun-filled tour complete with walks through the woods, sculptures of fries and faces, and ghost stories! Before we had to leave we hit up the Union to get some food, however only the Starbucks was open that early so I got a tall skinny vanilla latte (complete with one free shot of espresso!) which was so, so good that early in the morning!

Anyways, here are a few pictures from Katy and I's adventure:

On a walk!
South campus! Katy lives on North campus!
In the woods!
Awwwwh bffz for life!
In Katy's dorm!

  While I was also in Flagstaff I got to hang out with my friend Lauren whom I haven't seen in years, literally. It was so nice to be able to catch up with her and look at her shiny engagement ring!

  Hopefully next month Scott and I will be able to go back up to Flagstaff to spend more time with Katy and Lauren. I absolutely love the weather up there and NAU seems like such a fun place to be. I can't wait for more adventures up there!

  This week has gone by pretty fast, as it was an extra short school week for me, classes Tuesday through Thursday. Yesterday I did have a meeting with someone in the media relations department at the engineering school at ASU about an internship, and I was offered the job! The internship is a writing internship and I will be writing things that will be posted on the ASU website and in other sources of media through ASU. I start tomorrow and I will be working two days a week, eight hours a week so and all the work I do will be done there so it won't really affect my work load for school. I'm very excited to start, but also very nervous at the same time.

   I must also mention how wonderful today was. My amazing boyfriend was at my school downtown before I even got out of class and dropped my bike off for me behind the building was in and met me there so we could go on a bike ride/lunch date together during my lunch break for school. We decided to bike down to The Welcome Diner but were very dissapointed when we saw that it wasn't opened to. The signage as a little confusing so all I can tell you is that they are open every First Fridays and Third Thursdays. If anyone can clear up there hours for me I would greatly appreciate it. 

  So since the diner was closed we road our bikes down Roosevelt and ate at The Nile Cafe. I had a yummy falafel sandwich, and Scott had a gyro! Afterwards we got dessert at Krispie Kreme (donuts and coffee!) and enjoyed our time together before I had to go back to class. I hope we have many more lunch dates like that in the future. I also hope Scott knows how much appreciate him and love him and am so thankful to have him in my life<3

  Tomorrow morning I'm getting up extra early so Scott and I can have our weekly Friday morning coffee at Cartel before I go to my internship, and then later that evening hopefully we will be going to the poetry slam at Mill's End in Tempe.

Ok, enough for now! Happy Thursday everyone!

Chels xoxo
