Universal Studios

This weekend, I stayed with a Kappa Adviser from UCF, Kathy, and yesterday we went to Universal Studios. More importantly, we went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!!

Here are some pictures from our day!

"I haven't had this much fun since I was a kid!"

I wasn't too excited about Jurassic Park. I just wanted to walk through as quick as possible and get to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!

We're approaching Hogsmead in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!!

The outside of Hogwarts!

The Hogwarts Express!

Me drinking a butterbeer!

How cute :)

Park switch!

Kathy and I are getting eaten alive!

Back on the Road

When I came home for Christmas break, I could only think about how long five weeks at home would be! But time flew, and before I knew it, it was time for my second semester of visits. Packing the second time around was just as rough as the first time, especially because I will probably not be going home until April! I have clothes for every climate possibility for the next three months. My suitcase is laughable: Flip flops and UGG boots; Bikini and Wool Coat; combinations I'm not used to making.

I spent this past week at Virginia Tech for pre-recruitment. The weather was quite chilly! It wasn't much different than I'm used to in Illinois, but I spent more time outside!!

Last night I flew into Orlando. After a few flight delays and a missed connection, I arrived around 2 AM. I am staying with an UCF adviser, Kathy, before heading to Rollins College this Sunday morning.
