I'm glad you wrote this. It reminds me of my summers when I was growing up. Everything is pretty much the same except for MTV and Atari. We had a Sega Genesis which at the time, I thought was the greatest thing to exist on the planet, ever. That was until N64 came out and that was the greatest thin to exist ever. It was also different because I didn't spend the summers of my youth at my house. I spent them at my babysitter's house. She had an above ground pool and I just remember leaving everyday from her house with my entire body wrinkled because I stayed in the water so long. (I also remember that I was the smartest out of all my friends and that everyone should have listened to me.) I always loved summer because my birthday is in August. I remember having the best parties at my house and at my babysitters house. I can't ever remember a time when I was growing up that it was ever a rainy day on my birthday. I also remember how simple everything seemed, and it was simple. Now as I sit here in my room, the room I have had since I was four, I can't remember when everything changed. When everything became complicated. I really wish I understood and believed the adults when they said that being a grown up is harder than being a kid, I wish I hadn't taken so many things like my youth for granted. I look back now and I also cannot remember why I was so eager to grow up so fast. At 23, I feel more like a child than I ever did as a child, because now I understand. Those moments we all have as adults where we can forget for awhile and be 10 again. The only thing I am completely sure of in this life is that nostalgia is sometimes the only time we ever truly see how different things are than they were when we were all kids. The only thing that hasn't changed is that I am still the smartest out of all my friends. ;-)

It's been hotter than balls here in Ohio, and in the Midwest in general. Our grass looks more like hay, and my feet are burnt from going to get the mail without putting shoes on. I like how you spell "colour" in the (in my not so humble opinion) correct way. It's good to know I'm not the only born and raised American who has almost completed converted to British English spelling.

Two additional local restaurants are: Paul's on Fifth Avenue - Cozy, quiet and has some of the best Italian dishes I have had the pleasure to eat. Anything Alfredo is where it's at. (In my opinion of course!) Orange Leaf Frozen Yoghurt - A little pricey, but totally worth it! My favourite flavour is the Brownie Batter one! Taste exactly like chocolate brownies and Heaven. Both of those restaurants are located in downtown Grandview, which isn't that far from The Convention Centre. If you like books and small, independent bookstores, The Book Loft is where it's at! 32 rooms stuffed with books of any genre you can think of! Perhaps, even some you didn't even know existed! This amazing local haunt is located in German Village, which is just outside downtown Columbus. And finally if you have time, also in German Village is Schiller Park, not far from the Book Loft. Every Thurs, Fri, Sat, and Sun evening at 8pm, they put on a play. Currently the play is Robin Hood. It's totally free, but donations are accepted! I hope you enjoy your stay here in our "big town"! I am so excited to see you this Friday! Aufwiedersehen!
