So. That was one crazy trip. But we had a great time, and being home was amazing (prompting me to ask Herman at least once a day "so, we'll move home after I graduate?"). Here's a quick recap:
Friday: Arrived in SJ. Late.
Saturday: Slept in. Hung out with Sumiko all afternoon.
Sunday: Spent time with Wendy, Susan, and the beautiful Isabelle. Had Herman's birthday dinner with his family.
Monday: Drove down to LA. Hung out with my cousin Mikael (and made a whirlwind trip to Riverside). Spent the night with my cousin Kelly (she's getting married next summer!).
Tuesday: Drove back to the Bay Area. Dinner at Krung Thai!
Wednesday: Had lunch with an old friend, Dale, who I hadn't seen in 12 years and who happened to be in the Bay Area for a job interview. Threw Herman a birthday party with a bunch of our friends.
Thursday: Had an interview in Berkeley at Ready Made Magazine (hopefully for a summer internship). Spent the evening with Dean and Sumiko.
Friday: Woke up at 4.30 am. Made Dean take us to the airport at 5.00 am. (Thanks Dean!). Flew back to Providence.
Also: Put an extra 1000 miles on my car. Ate tons of good food. Visited all our old haunts (Mountain View!). Decided that I definitely want to live in the Bay Area.
