One of the hardest things about being a college student is not being able to see my family as often as I would like to. It’s been about two months since I’ve been able to go home, so I took a break from working on my midterm papers and met my parents in Birmingham for a day of ‘splorin. We started our day with brunch at the Alabama Biscuit Company, and holy cow! It is one of the most beautiful places in existence. I had a biscuit with goat cheese, pecans, and honey, and it was incredible. If you’re ever in Birmingham, definitely check it out.
Next, we went downtown in the hopes of acquiring a new ribbon for my typewriter, but alas, the typewriter store was closed. Instead, I got some snaps of my outfit in front of some pretty buildings.
We ended the day at the Summit, where we browsed bookstores and ate Chinese food. Now, it’s back to the books. There’s nothing quite like ending a fun day with Robert Browning and some good ole essay writing. Wish me luck!
