I used to share a blog with Melissa, but she's been MIA for a few months, so I made it all mine! Random thoughts on my every day life to bore you with.

Why do people in South Austin not know North?

Last night I was volunteering. After I had eaten my plastic food dinner and all the kids were tucked away in their counseling session, I was sitting and talking with two other volunteers who are UT freshmen, and my supervisor. Anyhow, so someone (and I can't remember which one) looked at me in all seriousness and said "Where's Round Rock?" I was like, "uhhh....where the new outlet mall and Ikea are," and they said "I know, I want to go to the Outlet Mall, but I don't know where Round Rock is" So I told them that it was North, and they asked where North was. I was like "?#!!@ - It's Freakin' NORTH!" So one of the other girls had to explain that if you get on I35 and go in the direction opposite of San Marcos you'll get to Round Rock. Everyone feel smarter for the fact that you actually know where Round Rock, and that mysterious "North" are.

I'm sorry, there is no way of explaning that to make them sound any less stupid. North, the opposite of South. 1st graders know these things. I am seriously disturbed that these people are counseling kids. You're going to have to be extra good to make up for them :).
