  • Sun sun sunnnnnnn

    [For full blog reading experience, please put on a pair of sunglasses (and go to a sunny park if possible).  Also play this song.] 

    From snow to sun.  It has been a surprisingly warm and sunny February!  The rain is supposed to come back tomorrow but for the past week it has been SUPER sunny. 

    Unfortunately I have been sick with a cold and cough which kept me inside for the past week so I had to enjoy the sun from my window.  But all my friends had a really good time!  I did get to go out when I was feeling better.

    I am a little ashamed to admit this since I have been at school here for these past few years but I went to Gas Works for the first time this weekend. For those of you who just gasped out of disbelief because that is your favorite park in Seattle, I am sorry that it has taken me this long.  For those of you who don’t know what this park is, let me tell you it is beautiful.  If you are visiting Seattle, you definitely need to check it out.  Especially if it is nice out!  It is featured in one of my favorite movies of all time: 10 Things I Hate About You.  If you haven’t seen it, change that. 

    Here are pictures from when I went with my friends Abbey and Signe:

    This sun reminds me of the beautiful spring and summer that are coming eventually!  The rain definitely makes you appreciate the nice weather when you get it. 

    The song is by one of my favorite bands: Yacht.  I am seeing them tomorrow!  I can’t wait. 

    Yours truly,

    Ben Neal
