It’s been so long! [I guess not that long. Haha.]
So, as I mentioned before, I am interning in Montana. I arrived here Friday – I rode the plane for the first time in my life! It was awesome! And the airport in Minneapolis is HUGE! It’s like a mall! I had an hour and a half layover, so I window shopped…and bought a BOOK! [For those of you who don't know me, this is a BIG DEAL! I don't read! Not if I don't have to! (Sometimes not even if I have to. Hence, my struggle in History this semester.)] Caitlyn was real proud of me until I told her what book I bought: Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I don’t care if it’s a third grade level book. It’s HILARIOUS! And my mom for the summer [I'm staying with a family up here. Kinda like a foreign exchange student. Except I'm not foreign. Almost, though! Haha.] said something that just…was so encouraging! She said, ”Reading is supposed to be enjoyable. You’re the one who decides what it is that you enjoy!” And you know what? I think I might start reading more often. Even if I’m reading books meant for elementary students. Because I enjoy them. ANYWHO…It’s so gorgeous in Montana! I’m staying in a valley, in a town called Kalispell. It’s like a bowl…the mountains surround the valley. It’s awesome. I keep forgetting that there are mountains outside! Haha. I step outside when we’re about to go somewhere and look up and “OH snap! I forgot about the mountains!” And I just stare at them. They really are as majestic as people say they are. I took a really great picture and set it as my profile photo on Facebook. I can now quote Caitlyn’s beloved Community: “I don’t have an ego. My Facebook photo is a landscape.” Haha.
Anyway, I’ve been in kind of a funk so far. It’s like I can’t remember who I am. Haha. I have been the absolute most awkward person in the world, and I’m like “Who is this girl?!” My dad for the summer told me that I need to find my flavor. We think it’s Birthday Cake. [By the way, they don't have Chick Fil-A or Blue Bell ice cream in Montana! It makes me reeaalllly miss the Connection Cafe!] My summer parents tell me, “Be Birthday Cake! You ARE Birthday Cake! Sprinkle, sprinkle!” Haha. They’re great!
ANYWAY! So, the reason I am writing this blog is to tell you guys about my grade in History. As you know, I spent many many maaannnyy hours trying to pick up the slack I created in my History class. [Caitlyn can testify to that for you!] Grades were posted Thursday, and in the class of History 1312, I made the letter grade of……..

I’d like to take this moment to thank God for giving me friends like Caitlyn and our study group [Courtney, William J., and Mike] and my Brazos buddies [Kavaugn, Collin, and Will P.] and the general advisor on the second floor of Davis Hall [whose name I can't quite remember! I think it's Kevin...] for pushing me to not give up in this class! Because I was soooo close to just giving up! Like, I put History on my schedule for next semester because I was sure that I was going to fail this semester! But because I am surrounded by people who want to see me succeed, I did not give up! And now, I don’t have to take any more History courses!
Anywho, that’s all for now! Happy summer!
