First day of school

Updates....


Okay, so I went to Alaska... then I went on a road trip with Vanessa... and now I'm going to have three interviews on three different days in three different states! Yup, that's right!


Let's start at the beginning.

I went on an Alaskan cruise with Mom. First we went to Seattle, which was lovely. I really enjoyed it there (Matt was my tour guide and we went on adventures). Then we took the Norwiegen Star... here's the trip:

Here are two pictures:


1. Here's a picture of the bottom of the Seattle Space Needle (yes, we went to the top) Matt and I walked over there and went up to the top.


2. Here is me at the glacier! Ohhh ahhhhit was very cold!



Overall, it was a lovely trip :)

First day of school

Road trip?


Okay, so you get a couple of posts in one day because I have time right now to sit down and update.

So, I came back from Alaska for two days and then headed out to VA to see Vanessa! I arrived there on Wednesday and we spent Wednesday- Saturday in VA. We went kayaking, hung out at her house, and relaxed. On Saturday we traveled to her parent's house in VA beach and then on Sunday we appeared in Chestertown! We actually told Dad and Marissa that we were coming, but no one else knew! So, it was quite a shock. We stayed overnight in Chestertown and had a lovely visit!

On Monday morning we drove from Chestertown to Hershey Park, PA! :) Yes, I finally went to the land of chocolate! Woohoo!
It actually wasn't as exciting as people make it out to be (sorry for the letdown). I was hoping for more of a chocolate themed park... it wasn't really. But, it was a fun day and we only paid $25, so it was totally worth it. We went on the free chocolate tour (and got chocolate at the end) and then when we entered the park we went on a bunch of rides and played games.



On Tuesday we headed out to the Crayola factory in Easton, PA. I haven't been there in years, but what a fun place! We had a lovely afternoon learning about crayons, coloring and doing art projects. If you've never been there, I highly recommend that you go!

On Tuesday evening we drove back to NY. What should have taken 2 hours took close to 4 (thanks to the Belt parkway! ARG!) But, we're back in NY now. Yesterday we went to the Museum of Natural History, ate at Ruby Foo's and saw Shrek on Broadway (which was wonderful!)

Overall, a lovely adventure!
First day of school

Job Hunt?

This is the last post today, I promise.

So, I have three interviews next week on three different days in three different states.

Tuesday: VA (Mathews County)
Wednesday: MA (Chelsea, MA)
Thursday: NY (Cooperstown)

The plan is that I'm heading back to VA with Vanessa tomorrow, staying there until Tuesday, flying home on Tuesday. Driving to MA on Wednesday, then to Cooperstown, staying over at Cooperstown and then driving home. Whew! That could change though because I might fly straight to MA... not sure yet.

But, nonetheless, let the craziness begin!
