Last year when I went to the Florida State Fair I was so enamored with it that I wrote a whole post about it, so of course I had to go again this year. I didn’t spend as much time there because of course I’d seen the permanent exhibits last year but I still loved it. God I love fairs. They’re just the best. Florida State Fair is the best. Go to it.
I sent in my application for an archaeological field school in St. Mary’s City, Maryland! It’ll probably be a little bit before I hear whether I’ve been accepted or not, but here’s hoping! I’ve applied almost two and a half months before their deadline, so hopefully I won’t have any issues with space availability. If I get in I’d love to take the train up from Tampa. I’ve been dying for another train adventure, but there just aren’t that many places to go from here.
Also I hurt my knee crashing an electric scooter. Not even the kind that really wants to be a motorcycle, like a child’s foot-powered scooter with an electric motor in the bottom. Just wiped out on the sidewalk right next to a busy road. Possibly my most ridiculous injury ever.
