What a summer it has been so far! Like wow! I feel like although I work 9-5 Monday through Friday, I am still having an awesome summer!! Went to Rehoboth to celebrate July 4th, visited my friend Erika on Long Island for a weekend, planned and had my family reunion, FFF (Forced Family Fun), at our shore house in Tuckerton, NJ, one of our best friends, Erin, turned 21 and we took her out to this AMAZING hookah bar downtown called Fez, that had the most delicious Moroccan food ever….and this past weekend, Ash and I both went up to Allentown, PA to see the DCI Eastern Classic. Our friend Greg who just graduated is from there so we just crashed at his place for the weekend. The entire month of July was soo much fun!! And then to top off an already amazing weekend in Allentown, Ash’s family bought a used jet ski and surprised her… so we drove from Allentown all the way to Rehoboth and jet skied til 7pm!! It was my first time on a jet ski and let me just say.. it is truly an experience. Wish I had pics of that. Oh well, haha. Maybe next time we go down we’ll take pics of it!

Besides working and enjoying myself, I’m still trying to keep up with all my paperwork for study abroad in January. I have to get a passport photo taken and renew my old passport. That stupid little thing costs 100 bucks!! Can you believe that?! I also need to visit the fin aid office and let them know I won’t be here for Spring semester, apply for a student visa, and buy a plane ticket to Paris! So much to do.. I know I’m starting things early and keeping on top of my stuff, it just seems like I have so much ahead of me. But nonetheless, I’m getting very excited to be out of the country for a few months!!

So classes start on September 2nd this year. I’m not gonna lie.. I’m looking forward to it. Ok so I look forward to them starting every year, haha. I just like being in an academic setting and learning new things and meeting people. Gives my brain a work out.. for once 😉 Band camp is also coming up.. August 24th-28th. Woo! haha. It really isn’t bad, it’s just long and it’s hot.  I went to band camp in high school, both home AND away band camp, all 4 years, and it was a lot harder than band camp at Temple, so it won’t be bad at all.  It will actually be fun to see everyone and meet all the new freshman!  Anyway.. more to come on that later..I’m tired. Gonna go relax now. But here are some pics of course 🙂
