Big, Fluffy Clouds

I have not been extremely active in picture-taking this week.  Classes started, homework and studying have begun, and since I don't know a lot of people here yet, taking a lot of pictures like I do normally can sometimes seem a little awkward.  But I've taken a few.
Several nights ago, I went with my Impact group to Whataburger.  It was my first taste of that particular fast food restaurant, as I'd always preferred Sonic or Braum's back at home.  It wasn't bad, although it definitely wasn't my favorite.  What really gave me a laugh was the inside of the restaurant.  You can always tell when you're in Aggieland.  There is no questioning it.  Even the Whataburgers have A&M decorations all throughout the building.
You know how Whataburgers have a sloped roof with broad orange stripes?  Down here, one of the stripes is maroon.

This is a glimpse of what I see every single day in the library.  I'm very relieved for signs such as this, but they are also becoming an expression of my newfound (and despised) studying habits.
Actually, I say these things, but I haven't really studied much at all, so pay no attention to my complaints.  So far in the library, I've read a book that I must read for ASL class, I've written a letter to Ali, and I've written an outline for a new story I've been tossing around in my head.  Hard work, right?

The other day, I parked behind a car that had Converse shoes hanging from the mirror, just like mine.  The only difference was that mine are legitimately Converse shoes made for six or seven year olds and given to me by a friend.  The shoe hanging from this other car's mirror was pretend.  Just a keychain.  But still.  This was the first time I saw someone with a similar decoration on their car, so I had to snap a picture.
It's a little far away because I wasn't too keen on the idea of peering into someone's windshield to take a picture.  I figured that might look a little suspicious.

And finally, here is my favorite picture of the week.  I was leaving my very last class on Thursday and since I don't have any classes on Friday, that meant I was free for the weekend.  Despite the hot sun that was literally draining me of all remaining energy with each step I took, a huge smile was sprawled across my face.
Free, free, free!
When I looked up at the sky, I noticed giant fluffy clouds, the kind I remember from back in the days before the drought.  (Yes, there is even a drought here too.)  They were beautiful and white and resembled giant cotton balls.
I just love clouds so much.

I "edited" all of these with instagram and took all of the pictures with my iPhone.  If you want to follow me on instagram, I'm emilytheperson, but I'm not striving to gain hundreds of followers (I'm not even sure how many I have), so only follow me if you legitimately want to see my pictures.
Are you a student? Has school begun for you? Are you in middle school, high school, college, grad school...?
