College search continued...
Yesterday we were in Philly looking at the University of the Arts. It was, Lisa thinks, her favorite school so far. She liked the painting department and that you don't declare a major your first year. She is interested in painting, graphic design and photography. This area of the city is very nice, and she is only 2 1/2 hours from home BUT what really got her was when she saw the glass blowing. I don't believe we've seen a school that has offered this yet. She was mesmerized. I mean, come on you guys, we all know how much $$ glass-blowers make. Ohhhh! I joke. I'd try it too if I went to school there.
STILL there are alot of deciding factors(money and acceptance)and one more school (back to NYC) to look at. Some schools we aren't looking at just applying to. One is School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I would like her to see it but...I'm really wiped out and that one is far. It does seem that seeing the city is a deciding factor for her. Meanwhile, I've lost my glasses. That's what I hate about traveling. Keeping myself together. Impossible. I can't see distance w/o them. They were fairly new. I hate spending that damn money on glasses. Please let them show up!
When we got home where the 14 year old had stayed this time there were dirty dishes, more than a couple flies (which conjured up visions of the doors hanging wide open which without me home and announcing every 5 minutes "Close the door so the flies don't get in" is probably exactly what was happening.) and one very messy room which we had stipulated be thoroughly cleaned before going anywhere. Naturally he was not there but out surfing.
In conclusion, if there is a God, could he please hand over my glasses?
*UPDATE: THERE IS A GOD. GLASSES FOUND. THEY WERE IN THE FOOT WELL ON THE PASSENGER FRONT SIDE THOUGH I LOOKED THERE 5 TIMES PREVIOUSLY. I DECIDED TO GO ONE MORE ROUND IN THE CAR.
