The Best of Austin, Texas

God, I miss Texas. I probably miss Texas mostly because of the people that I left that I love there, but also because it has just been such an amazing place to live. This is especially true for Austin, so I decided to make a list of some of my favorite places in Austin, TX and the Austin area. Obviously, there are probably many more great places that I never had a chance to go to… but here is my top 10 in no particular order. I can’t say much about the quality of the photos coming up because I took a lot of these with my phone… which has a horrible camera, just FYI.

Italy North to South

Ciao! Well, I haven’t updated this blog for some time now because after graduation, Sam and I went to Italy for 3 weeks. Then we were living with my mom in Houston for about a month until we moved to California where we will be for some time now. Now that I am finally moved in, I actually have some time to update things, and I thought I would start with our trip to Italy. I am going to try and condense our Italy trip to just one photo per place visited and I am going to keep to the highlights since it was such a long trip. In reality, I took over 1500 pictures. We started in Northern Italy and then made our way down to Southern Italy. We began by flying into Milan…

{In Remembrance} Senior Year

As always… the best for last. I’ve been a bit busy lately, so getting this post up has taken some time, but this last year of college has definitely been one of the best. I made many of my closest friendships this year and got to have a lot of fun with them. I am seriously going to miss them.

{In Remembrance} Junior Year

This is one of my favorite photos. Sunnah planking on a bike rack (or whatever you call those things). I don’t ride a bike. I don’t know the bike lingo. Junior year stayed pretty serious. Got to keep those grades up ya know? I was a little less nerdy than sophomore year… a little.

{In Remembrance} Sophomore Year

I kicked my good study habits into high gear sophomore year. Aka, I was a super nerd. I spent more than 20 hours a week at the library with Sunnah in hopes of making good grades… it paid off. I did manage to have a little fun though.

{In Remembrance} Freshman Year

I am going to do a series of four posts focusing on all of my favorite memories from college. As I was going back through all my photos, I realized how much actually happened. I was going to do just one post with all four years, but I have way too many pictures. So here we go… Freshman Year first.

Amazing Beef and Broccoli

I have had such a busy, but fun, week. On Tuesday, my softball team won the championship game for our intramural league. On Thursday a bunch of us went out country dancing… (Sam and I attempted it at best). Friday, we had party barge to go to which lasted all day, and then we went to 6th street afterwards. Saturday we had our senior banquet which ended at 6th street with an open bar. Sunday, we lounged at the pool and then went bowling at the Highball. Monday we floated the river in San Marcos, and Tuesday Sam and I went to see the Avengers at the Alamo Drafthouse, then I got drinks with some friends at Cain and Ables. Today we are going to kayak or stand up paddle board at Lady Bird Lake. I love Austin. After graduation I am going to be dead tired and broke… but it’s worth it.
