A Weekend in Illinois

May 16, 2017

As y’all know, finals and graduation season are currently in full swing. Although I’m nowhere near graduating any time soon, this past weekend, I had the privilege of attending my cousin’s graduation from the University of Illinois. I had one of the most memorable weekends of my life and I thought I’d share my experience with y’all. Walking around the campus and witnessing the beginning of many people’s lives was an unforgettable experience.. Here we go!

A couple hours beforehand, we packed and got my cousin’s graduation present wrapped. Then, we headed out the door to catch our flight. After we got past airport security, my dad and I sipped on some yummy green juices from Red Mango. Champaign, Illinois is a small college town a couple hours from Chicago, which means the airport was super tiny and the airplane we t0ok getting here was even smaller! We were both exhausted by the time we arrived at my cousin’s house. I had trouble keeping my eyes open! We had a quick dinner, took a shower, and went straight to bed.
