The End of Oxford
Well it is hump day here at Ole Miss and hot as ever. We basically have one week left as Oxfordians and it really hasn't hit us just how much we will miss this place. We definitely will be making the best of it, including going to our favorite restaurants (City Grocery, 208, Yocona, Taylor Grocery) and hot spots (Burgundy Room, The Library, & of course, DJ Mario). Friday night we are having a "Going Away" party at the McFatter's. It will be a great time as always. It is funny how things change. We once had the plan of staying in Oxford indefinitely with our married couple Daniel & Lauren McFatter. Now, we both will go our separate ways to pursue our careers very soon.
Enough about the sadness. This is an exciting time in our lives. Lauren and I are moving to Washington, D.C. next Saturday. Why you may ask? I am taking a position with the Washington Internship Experience. I will still work for Ole Miss, but in D.C. Now Lauren is the one who is doing things in D.C. and not even living there. She will be working as an Assistant Recruiter for the British Embassy. I am extremely excited and proud of her for landing this position. The Queen better watch out, Lauren has her eyes on the crown!
We are in the process of packing right now (ha, yeah right). Actually, we have to get busy on that. Time flies and we are counting down the days until the big move. Our plans for now regarding moving are ____________________. Fill free to help us out by filling in the blank. The best answers will be taken into consideration.
Last night, Lauren & I and The Breeze's (Andrew & Anna) went to dinner at Proud Larry's for 2 for 1. On Tuesdays, you can get two for one pizza, salads, burgers, & drinks. Really good deal. If your in Oxford on Tuesday, definitely try it. We had so much fun. It was good to be able to experience that one last time. Following our dinner, we went and had drinks at The Grocery. For those of you who do not know, The Grocery is a quaint bar above City Grocery. It is mostly known for entertaining the older, local crowd. It is rare that you see college students there. It was great sitting back and talking with friends knowing that soon we will be apart.
Until Next Time.......
