Instead I am going to spend the summer traveling. I have many options: Hawaii, Lake Powell, Europe, California, New York, Havasuppi etc. I am not going to get a part time job nor am I going to apply for any "real" jobs. Why would I want to be tied down? I am going to let someone just give me a car. And I am going to travel from the homestead to friends couches thus eliminating the need for an apartment or a decision as to which city to live in.
Just because I am graduating does not mean I need to grow up. Why start now anyways? I love being faux real!

- Bonnie makes me little snack packs so I don't get too hungry while in class
- Jeff will go to McDonalds to get hot fudge sundays (extra fudge no nuts) at any time during the day or late hours of the night
- Bonnie taught me to never leave the house without doing my hair
- Jeff taught me that I can marry more money in 5 minutes than I can make in a lifetime
- Bonnie has been to every significant and even all insignificant events in my life
- Jeff came with her to all those silly events and took pictures
- Bonnie lets me wear her clothes...she's more stylish than I am
- Jeff would let me wear his clothes if I was a boy...he is also more stylish than I am
- They play Ticket to Ride with me and Kelly numerous times a day
- They let me and Kelly (sometimes begrudgingly) crawl into their bed when they are trying to go to sleep
- They always want me to move home
And they are so pretty! I love them lots

- New York calls it a subway... that just irks me
- New York's subway is the dirtiest place in the world while DC's is the cleanest... well the cleanest place underground.
- There are people who actually live in the New York subway and never come out! If you don't believe me just go down there, you will either see a real subway person or the evidence of their underground life.
- DC has little signs that tell you what train is coming and how many minutes you have to wait. In New York you wait for twenty minutes and then if you are lucky an announcement will be made stating the train will not be there for another twenty minutes.
- Just yesterday I saw a man who looked like a woman and a woman who looked like a man in the New York subway. Imagine my confusion.
- You are likely to contract a number of incurable diseases in the New York subway.

- I am 22
- In 2 months time I will graduate with a bachelors degree
- I moved out of the parents house at age 18
- I have held a job all through my college years
- I am currently living in Washington DC
I believe these events would constitute any normal person as "real." But not me, oh no there is much more to me. No matter how old I get or the numerous adventures I undertake, some things will never change.
- People will always be shocked to find that A. I am capable of working, and B. until my recent move, I have had the same legitimate job for 3 years.
- Although I pay for the majority of my life, my dad always ends up funding things like new shoes...sometimes without his knowledge.
- All my siblings take good care of me. This may be bold but it's possible that I am the darling of the family.
- I am what you may call a young spirit. So in the mindset of those closest to me I am more 17 than 22.
- No matter how old I get the parents will always want me to move back in with them.
So you see, by normal standards I am a "real" person but this does not suit me. It is much better to continue shocking everyone by accomplishing what "real" people consider normal life events. These life events may be normal but when you're faux real they're extraordinary!

A student at the school where I teach designed this. I just couldn't resist.

I finally made up my mind and moved out to Washington D.C. I am student teaching at Duke Ellington School of the Arts. For those of you who know me personally, a school of the arts is the perfect place for me. The students just love to entertain! Life out here is very different from Provo but so far incredibly enjoyable.
- I live with seven other girls in a penthouse in Arlington, VA. Now penthouse conjures images of grandeur and class--while this may be true, no matter how big an apartment is, eight girls is a whole lot.
- Without a car, I am becoming very adept at using the metro and bus system. However, after numerous attempts to get to school by myself the other day I ended up on completely the wrong bus and the driver had to take a different route just for me. Sweet old man.
- We have an amazing mall nearby that harbors my mother ship-Nordstroms, and finally we found a grocery store just on the other side of said mall. Yesterday, on my way home from the grocer, laden down with shoes numerous bags, I decided it a perfect time to spend an hour trying on shoes at Nordy's. The groceries occupied an entire couch, but how convenient that all my basic needs can be met in one trip!
- I caved to the liberal atmosphere that surrounds me and bought an Obama t-shirt. As a justification, this is one of a kind and was designed by a former student at my school. I had to support--don't judge
- As it turns out I should have had a T.B. test before moving out here. So I spent an evening running around a sketchy part of town looking for someone to shoot me up with a small amount of consumption. Success! I have concerns about what disease they actually injected into my arm.
It's only been a week but it has been a long one. It is getting close to inauguration so I am frantically trying to find a senator's son to invite me to one of the balls. If not, I will just proudly don my Obama shirt and join the masses at the parade. This is definately an adventure.
