This has been me recently. I've been sleeping out of control and haven't known why. I thought I was depressed, suddenly lazy, and bored with everything. I went to the doctor on Monday because I thought I had strep, but hadn't put the symptoms together myself...turns out I have mono. Ugh. It's pretty terrible. I sleep at least 12 hours a day. And fall asleep whenever I need to accomplish anything remotely productive (of course).

Because I have been seriously slacking in the blogging department, Let's rewind a bit.
I went to Florida in April to present at the Multi-Ethnic Literature Conference in Boca Raton, aka I went to the Beach and Harry Potter World! The beaches in Florida are beautiful--the water was the same temperature as the air. My favorite part of HP world was walking through the castle, it's like being in a diorama (my dream of all dreams). PS. The butterbeer is fantastic.

Then my dear friend Whitney got married! So I got to trek to Arizona.
Then it snowed on memorial day and Jeff and I went skiing. 2 days before June.
I went to "Chad the Hair God" a few days ago and dyed my hair much darker. I feel like a real Campbell again--most of my cousins are brunette beauties. Chad knew most things about me just by looking. It was quite the experience.
I finish up spring term next week before I move to Washington DC! I'll be there for 2 months doing research at Howard University and can't wait. (The fact that Jeff got an internship with USAID may or may not have something to do with this)


  1. And here I thought you were moving to DC just so you could be closer to me.

  2. You are so beautiful, Sarah. Blonde or brunette. Booo for mono! Yes for D.C. and the boy!

  3. Take me to Harry Potter world!!!! I am SOOOOOO jealous. Feel better, feeling yucky is no good!

  4. Mono, whaaaaat?! Get better. You look beautiful with the dark hair.

  5. you are beautiful!! I miss you. I hope you feel better Sarah.

  6. Can I help you pack or something? I need to see you before you leave.

    Ps. you're darling.
