So my spring break was pretty good. I didn't go anywhere amazing and exotic. Just Indianapolis, twice. It started on the friday before the break started. Brandi Chel and I went to Hamilton on a little thrifting excursion. I got some really cool things. I hope that the fun we had is a preview of what is to come for the summer. Bonnaroo is going to be awesome. I am glaad we finally got our tickets. I owe my mom almost $300 but at least I know we have a guaranteed spot. I am most excited to see Ladytron, Sigur Ros, Gogol Bordello, MGMT, !!!, And of course Cat Power. I think Blaine, Andrew and I are going to see DeVotchKa and A Silver Mt. Zion. Seeing the latter will be a religious experience. I invest so much emotion and reverance into their music that I will be deeply affected by seeing them.
I also got my information from Earlham the other day. They raised the tuition to $34 thousand but they are giving me almost $30 thousand. If you think I was excited you should have seen my mom. We are going to split it up among my Dad, Mom and I. That means at least $1000 of my income every year has to go to Earlham. I hope I can still make enough to maintain my thrifting addiction. I can't wait until I get paid again. I will have to give $97 of it to my mom, but a large portion will go to myself. I will probably buy more sunglasses. I just bought 2 pairs of clear lensed 50s glasses (one black and one tortoise) and the checkered wayfarers( which all cost $60 altogether...yea i know). I love wayfarers. I already have three pairs in black, red, and tortoise (latter being actually vintage). I still want some white ones and these cool turqoise ones with purple lenses. I think also want regular black ones because the ones I have have a reddish-purple tint to them. Ok I need to stop rambling about sunglasses.
