grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

short trip to Minneapolis

I just got back from Minneapolis. I had written a long post from Minneapolis Friday but then blogger ate it. I wrote about the B&B we stayed at (an old sorority house), how cool it was to have my own room, and how the shared bathroom did indeed feel like we were in a sorority for the weekend. I don't think I have ever stayed in a hotel and had my own room- especially with a king size bed. The first night I slept there I had so much space that I ended up near the foot of the other side of the bed in the middle of the night not knowing which end was up and where I was. The trip was for a seminar- a bunch of us drove up on Friday and drove back today. The drive both ways was beautiful. I love driving. The leaves are changing and cows and farms are sprinkled everywhere. My time in Minneapolis was mostly a whirlwind of sitting in class, meeting people I didn't know and eating (especially great food I might add). Despite meeting all kinds of new people, it took getting me out of my surroundings (once again) to make me realise how much getting along easily with people matters. It is the people I get along with the easiest that I ought to stick close to. Friendship, like anything is, of course, work, but shouldn't be a chore either. So onward with the week then. Highlights will include getting back the stats exam, and hopefully not crying about it.
