This post is about my first week in Dallas, but really it is going to be about my first weekend (not counting the Sunday that I moved in, so this is after my first week at work). My days are pretty regular, where I wake up go for a run do some abs, eat breakfast, shower and get ready for work (makeup, make lunch/snacks and pack bag). So Friday, I woke up sometime between 8 and 9 am which is a little later than I had been waking up but it was my first day off since work had begun so oh well. I got going and decided to figure out how to use the metro system (DART) here. Turned out to be fairly straightforward and easy, though very different from the metro system in NYC or even DC.
This is me on the train... how cool am I? haha I tried to be discreet as I took this selfie!
The grassy knoll...
Almost to my destination when I saw this really cool church... I just had to stop and take a picture of it.
The history of Neiman Marcus.
After leaving Neiman Marcus, I continued to wander around though it was getting very hot and I saw this cool plaza area with a taco stand. I could not capture it well enough but it was pretty cool. After wandering for a few minutes, I eventually found a DART station and got back on the train to head back to my apartment.
Just wanted to end with my desk mate. An incoming freshman on the basketball team, who I have yet to meet, but her father stopped by and I gave him a tour and he brought me this! How kind of him and it is fairly large. I am trying to give it enough sun and not water it too much but I hope it grows - though I have been told they grow very slow so maybe it won't grow too much.
By the way, before I forget my parents just bought a house in Austin so it is official, my family is moving to Austin! The house sounds incredible, I only got to drive by it but I am very excited! Yay!
Thanks for reading!
