It is OFFICIALLY Summer.  I get so happy when I say that.  The first day of Summer was this past Saturday, the 21st.  Also the same day my cousin was married!  I had a great weekend.  Friday night I went shopping in Delaware with Ashley and got 2 bathing suits which was definitely a needed purchase.  Saturday Ash and I both worked the Al Golden Football Camp here at Temple.  Ashley works for the Football team and they needed extra help for the 5 camps so of course I volunteered (and I get paid!) We had to be there at 6:30am though, which was rough after a full week of 9-5 work, haha.

Then I headed home afterward for my cousin’s wedding reception…which was a BLAST!  I really enjoyed myself and loved seeing my whole family together again.  Then finally on Sunday I got to sleep in and catch up with 2 of my best friends from home, Kari and Jayme, which was very nice.  I miss them both so much!!  It was great chatting and filling in each other about everything happening in our lives.  Other than that, I’ve still been pretty busy.. a couple friends and I even got to go to the Philadelphia Zoo, thanks to Ashley who works there!!  She’s the balloon operator of the Channel 6 abc balloon. How cool is that?!?! So I have a LOT of pictures to show!! 😉

Last week a few owls and I went up to the Temple Ambler campus for a “photo shoot.”  We were needed for all the new Ambler publications, which are supposedly coming out at the end of August.  Can’t wait to see if I’m in any of them!!  I think it would be cool to see some of us in them 🙂

In other news, my brother Travis graduated from HS about 2 weeks or so ago.  It was nice going back and seeing some younger friends of mine from high school.  It also reminded me a lot of my high school graduation in 2006, at the same place.  It was definitely bittersweet.  I also saw some of my former teachers, including my 2 band directors.  Afterward, we went out to Charlie Brown Steakhouse in Springfield.  It was horrible.  The food was great but the service was absolutely terrible!  A really bad experience in my book.

FYI—HUGE NEWS: I got accepted into my study abroad program!!  IT IS OFFICIAL!!  I am going to Paris for Spring Semester 2009!  Woo hoo!!  I’m getting together all my paperwork with my passport, visa, financial aid, etc.  Not going to lie though — it’s a heck of a lot of work.  But I don’t mind it since 1) it’s Summer and I have no classes right now and 2) it will be WELL worth all the time and effort.  I am SO excited!  I have been waiting to study abroad for yearsss!!  I am going with a company based in California called GSE (Global Student Experience).  Temple already approved the program and my classes so it should transfer pretty smoothly!  I’m really looking forward to it.  You have no idea!!

I guess that’s all for now.  I’m pretty beat myself.  More to come later!!  Ciao!
