I apologize for the lack of updates recently!  I can’t even begin to tell you how busy I’ve been with school, work, band, football games, homework, and trying to have some fun!!

Last weekend was pretty rough losing to UCONN.  I’m over it now, but poor calls were definitely made and justice was definitely NOT served..not to mention Hurricane Hanna drenched everyone, haha.  But anyway, Ashley’s friend Denise, who goes to University of Delaware, came up for the weekend so that was a lot of fun.  We hung out all weekend with our friends and by Sunday the weather was much better.  Ashley, Denise, and I went down to Center City because my phone had water damage from the game, and Ash’s phone has just been acting up.  So we fixed that problem at the Verizon store and then walked around to Love Park, the new Comcast building (which is BEAUTIFUL btw), played with the dominoes and SORRY! pieces, and actually walked home all the way from City Hall to Temple.  We’ve never done that before.. and it only took about half an hour.. and it was such a nice day outside so we al enjoyed ourselves.  

This past weekend was a TON of fun since it was Ashley’s 20th Birthday, on September 11th.  A lot of us went out on Thursday night and had a great time!!  Friday night Erin, Ashley, and I went down to Wilmington to watch Ashley’s brother’s football game.  He goes to Salesianum School and they were playing William Penn.  Sallies won, even though they weren’t favored to.  It’s always a lot of fun to watch them and eat at the tailgate afterward.  Then Saturday Ashley’s mom was having a family party for her birthday at her house.  Ashley thought it was only family and family friends.. but Greg, Erin, Bryan, and I drove down to her house to surprise her, along with one of Ashley’s high school friends, Gina.  Ash was really surprised!!!  So overall, it was definitely a good weekend. 

Right now though I have to go do some homework.  Boo.  So more updates later on!!




The new Comcast Center building! 


Inside the Comcast Center building.  Do you see how CLEAR that picture of the Philly skyline is?!  That is a screen!!  When it’s not showing pictures, it shows the image of the wall below it, so it looks like there is no screen there at all.  Coolest thing.
