1. Did you know this is my 100th Friday Fives post on my WordPress site?! Holy smokes, better make this one good. 😉
3. Sometimes, you buy furniture online (aka the chairs I posted last week) and they break. Two chairs snapped when both Zach and I sat in them. And when I assembled my Urban Outfitters table, none of the holes lined up for screws to be put in and a leg fell off. I spent the majority of last week and this week building furniture, taking apart furniture, calling Overstock and Urban Outfitters, looking for boxes to repackage and then figuring out how to ensure they get picked up by UPS. Gaaahhhh, buy local y’all.
4. This recipe for a taco salad was deeeelish. Also, a trip to Flying Mango should happen more often. If you’re in the 515 and haven’t visited yet, go get some brisket and corn bread.
5. I met with my professor last week, who it actually turns out is my advisor. So, I’ve been in grad school for almost a year and no one told me I had an advisor. Therefore, I learned…quite a bit about all the things I wasn’t doing. I can now take classes at Iowa State which is a really big deal because online learning takes a ton of self-motivation and discipline. I got myself signed up for a class in Ames on Land Use and then one online class for January. Go grad school! #isitdoneyet
Going to Texas, which is where I happened to be exactly three years ago. Time flies. See you soon Iowa. <3
