The Return to Ohio and IS Monday

Yesterday was IS Monday, a holiday at the College of Wooster celebrating the achievement of seniors on their completed theses. This always occurs the Monday following spring break - the last day that seniors can turn in their independent study theses.

On the 13th, though, Joe showed up to my house in Connecticut. We spent the weekend and the following week exploring Connecticut, Rhode Island and New York and having lots of fun adventures. We went to museums, stayed in an NYC hostel, ate Mystic Pizza and had fun times having dinner with my parents.

On Friday, we left Connecticut and headed up to Rochester in order to break up our trip back to Wooster and see some of our friends who had graduated. The trip was around 6 hours long, but we did get some beautiful views of the Catskills as we drove through them. We arrived in Rochester pretty late, but got some delicious late-night dimsum and slept on the fold out couch in the living room. The next morning, we woke up, had some bagels, and departed once more.

The drive to Ohio took around 5 hours, but we had a great three-state tour. We got back and had dinner with Joe's parents, a late St. Patty's day dinner of corned beef and cabbage. The dorms didn't open until Sunday, so we stayed there Saturday night after visiting Laura for some welcome home fun and moved in to Kenarden on Sunday afternoon. We hiked in Spangler with Laura that afternoon and then went back to Joe's for a meal cooked by his brother, John, of lasagna and chocolate lava cake, both of which were delicious.

Yesterday was IS Monday and it was a crazy day of plenty of drunken 21 and 22 year olds celebrating far too early and falling asleep too early, as well. I marched through the parade and ate some free pizza at the end of the march, and I was glad that I could be here to celebrate with all of my friends. After the pizza, we went back to Bryan House and sat on the roof, played music and ate cake. Fell asleep pretty early, but that's okay.

I'm going to have to find my new routine in this place, but it does feel kind of like I'm home again.
