St. Louis Beginnings

The first (and maybe only?) Cardinals game I will ever go to; clouds galore; The Mud House, one of the best coffee shops around, on Cherokee Street (see offensive statue); semi-secret butterfly garden near campus; Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis (big Catholic presence here); surprise, the Arch; some artfully arranged frames at The Heirloom Room.

In the midst of all this, my parents gallantly flew here and helped me move in; I started three classes (+ auditing a fourth); wrote some poems; went to a bunch of art openings; my mom came back and I showed her the good parts of STL; and the sun set a bunch of times and made the clouds look amazing.
