I couldn’t go home for Spring Break this year because I had rowing practice. It was great to be rowing because in the beginning of the week the weather was really nice, and I just enjoyed being out on the water! However, the best part of the break for me was being able to see my parents! I am very close to my parents and not being able to see them in nearly two months has been hard because last semester I somehow managed to see them every month. Anyway, they came to visit me at the end of spring break! We had so much fun because we got to explore Tulsa.
We went to the Gilcrease Museum, and to some of the restaurants that I had heard had amazing food, and went shopping! In case you were wondering some of the best places to eat are: McNellie’s, Mod’s, The Coffee House on Cherry Street (as I have said before), Tally’s, Elote Cafe, The Brook, and The Phoenix. Although we only went to McNellie’s and Elote Cafe while my parents were here, I would recommend all of them! There is a lot of great food in Tulsa.
The Gilcrease was really cool too because students get in free, and it is always fun to look at new exhibits. It is slightly different from the Art Museum in St. Louis (where I’m from) because the Gilcrease has more art and artifacts from the American West. I also had fun shopping at the mall, but my mom said that her favorite place to shop is still Utica Square (which is really convenient because it is so close to campus). I really enjoyed having my parents here, and I look forward to seeing them again.
The countdown has begun! Spring break is in 10 days! WOOOOOO! I am so excited for some time with no classes–these past few weeks have been so stressful for me. It’s been midterms/papers/persentations galore, and I am in much need of a break. I’m heading home to St. Louis for the first time this semester (it’s amazing how little I go home nowadays…I never want to miss a weekend in Tulsa!) to get all of my spring clothes and then next Friday it’s off to Florida with my pledge class in my sorority! We’re staying just outside of Panama City at a really nice resort, and I’m so excited for some time in the sun! The weather’s been pretty good there lately, so I’m hoping it holds up for when we head down there. It will be a MUCH needed vacation, and I am so ready for it!
I’m also really excited for next Monday, because that is the day when I receive my LSAT scores. I’m SO nervous, but I’m also really excited to see how I did. I’m anxious to start the whole process of visiting law schools and deciding where I want to apply, and these scores will determine whether or not I take the LSAT again to try to better my score (how I would love to not have to take it again…). I’ll keep you all updated on how things go, and next time I’ll be able to write all about my spring break! Until then, hopefully the weather is as nice where you are as it is in Tulsa right now so that you can enjoy the beginning of SPRING! =)
It’s the final countdown…
I bet you guys are sick of me talking about how fast time goes by… but I’ve got to do it again: Today I picked up my graduation gown. And we had our last meeting for a group I’m involved in! What’s going on!? Ahh!!
So I am going to complain for a minute about how slow time is going by when I think about waiting for scholarship results! I feel like I submitted my application at least 6 years ago… I am supposed to find out within the next month, but I have already been excessively checking my e-mail for several weeks.
As usual, things are busy! But we have some really fun stuff coming up… a few of my friends and I are planning a great trip for Spring Break to the Graaaaand Canyon!! We are planning to camp and hike for the week, as well as stopping in Farmington, NM to visit one of our friends who graduated last year and works there for ConocoPhillips now! I will try to remember to take some good pictures for you guys!
Last week we had Tulsa Time, which is always tons of fun. I spent the day hanging out with prospective students and their parents, talking about life at TU. Sadly, I didn’t get to host a student overnight, but I did have a student from Houston come stay in my apartment earlier in the week. That was really fun to learn about Houston and what her school is like. She told me all about the IB program and how intense it is! (By the way, good luck to all of you IB’ers out there as you are wrapping things up!!)
Now it’s time to grab some quick dinner and do a little bit of planning for the Grand Canyon
Until next time!
