Because smart is sexy, right?
So I finished school a couple of weeks ago and wrote my GMAT on Saturday – you’d think that I’d be ready for some well-deserved rest and relaxation, right? Wrong! Not me. Of course, just a couple of days after I finish all of my school related business, I agree to accompany my mother to a conference for math teachers in a nearby city.
The car ride was pretty scenic and I planned on taking photos along the way, but I completely passed out half an hour in. I’ll have to make up for it on the way back!
Upon arriving, we experienced a bit of an unpleasant surprise. The hotel where we were supposed to stay was absolutely horrendous! It was a big chain hotel and we had booked a suite, so we expected something decent. Instead, we walked into a tiny, dim, stuffy room, featuring an awful little sofa bed. Even better, I opened the curtains to see spider webs covered in mayflies just outside the room. I debated posting pictures, but I wouldn’t want to subject my amazing readers to that. Just thinking about it now is giving me shivers!
So, we went for a little walk in search of something a bit more decent. Luckily, we found another big chain hotel, this one overlooking a super cute lake. We asked to see their rooms and were completely elated as soon as we walked in! Our new room is very airy, with enormous sleep number beds and a gorgeous view. Best of all, there is no gross infestation of mayflies! Win!
Our view. Isn’t it just quaint?
Once we were all settled into our hotel, we decided to go for a walk in search of somewhere to eat. We found a really nice pasta place near our hotel and decided to check it out. The place was great and our waitress was super sweet, even when I accidentally asked her whether the tap water was safe to drink, forgetting that we were in a fairly large city. Total facepalm moment.
Inside the restaurant, so cute!
The food at this place did not disappoint. I ordered a baked pasta, cappelletti with tomato sauce and mozzarella. It tasted totally homemade! The only downside is that I’ve have to work it off this morning. It was so worth it though!
It may not look like it, but the portions at this place were enormous! After we finished eating, a walk was well in order.
Found this place while we were walking and thought it was super pretty. No idea what it is, though.
Anyway, I meant to post this last night, but again, I completely passed out. Seems like all my studying and lack of sleep is finally catching up with me! I can’t wait until I’m not constantly tired anymore.
Apparently, this is what happens when you try to visit me while I’m studying for the GMAT. Poor Mips.
