I ended up coming up to Philadelphia earlier than I planned; my grandmother passed away two weeks ago, and I decided to drive up here to be with my family. I'm glad I did, even if it means I'm a a bit bored. I got a job working at my dad's office, though, so at least I'll be getting paid for a month. I miss all my friends already! I can't believe I won't see everyone for a year. That's a bummer. Not much to update on in the study abroad realm; everything has been taken care of for a while. All I have to do now is wait.
