I have been in Florida for about a week and a half now. I am officially a resident – I have my driver's license and I'm registered to vote here. The drive went fine after I put $450 into my car the morning that I left. I needed new front tires, an alignment, and new tire rods. But I think it made the drive more pleasant. And I'm just saying that George Bush paid for that one. My dad drove down with me. It took us just over 20 hours and we had nice weather for the most part. There was bad weather passing through Georgia, but it hit when we were stopped for the night. We did drive by a place where tornadoes had hit a few hours earlier and I had never seen anything like it. My dad made me take pictures. It was crazy. This is I-75, a major US interstate and we were driving in the left breakdown lane because trees were covering all 3 lanes.
Aside from that, the drive was very uneventful. We did happen to stop for gas by the Armstrong Air & Space Museum so I got a picture of me sitting in a mockup of the Gemini module. :) Next to it is part of the actual Apollo spacecraft that went to the moon, but I do not have a picture of that. Lame, I know. But you got to do something on a drive that long to make it fun.
So there hasn't been much going on in Florida. My bar review class starts in June so I am sort of just killing time until then. I've been to the beach a bit, but the weather hasn't been great so I've really just watched a lot of Dawson's Creek and Lost.
Here are some pictures of the beach by us:
And here is a picture of Clearwater Beach which is about a half-hour drive from our apartment. I took my dad when he was here.
So that is my life in Florida. You would think I would be getting a lot of reading done but Mansfield Park is slowing me down a bit. Hopefully I will finish a book before the month is over.
