It has been a over week since my last post. In a way, that’s great…it means that I’ve had enough to do to occupy myself, where I didn’t have time to write.
But, when you have a blog that’s meant to follow you though your time at school, it is kind important to actually write things down.
So, here we go…the last week or so in a nutshell.
My aunt, uncle and cousin came to visit for a few days. We saw a Bisons game and went to Darion Lake Amusement Park. We had a really great time!
When they left, Mike came to visit. It was so great having him here. Besides all of the obvious reasons that I was glad he was here, Mike was the ultimate spider killer. (thank you).
We went to (another) Bisons game. For $11 a ticket and cheap food, how can you pass it up??
We also went mini golfing.
And we sat by the water at Outer Harbor in Buffalo.
For my birthday, Mom and Dad sent yummy cupcakes!
Mike and I went to Delaware Park and had a picnic for lunch. It was the first birthday where I didn’t want to go out and do anything major. Just hanging around and relaxing was perfect. For dinner, we went out for sushi.
I had an awesome week with Mike. It was so nice to have him here. It was only a month since I left home, but it feels like much longer.
The night he left, there was a free OAR concert at Artpark. Because I knew I shouldn’t sit in my apartment and mope, and the concert would be a lot of fun, I joined in with everyone from Canisius and went. The rain held off that night and we saw a good show. Best part? Behind the stage, you could see Canada. It is pretty cool that I am so close.
I started training with the rest of the Res Life grads this week. I am so happy to be really starting the year. Judging by the first couple of days, I think we’re going to have a really great year. As part of training, we went horseback riding along a trail in the woods. I had never been before. At first it was a little scary, but after a little while, I was really enjoying it. My horse’s name was Prince. He was a big fan of taking a leisurely stroll, rather than trying to keep up with the group. Although we were behind everyone else, I had the chance to relax and enjoy being in the quiet woods.
At the barn, there were two cute little kittens. I was really temped to take one (or both) home with me.
This weekend, Nichole was here to visit. We had a really good time. I love having people from home come to see me. Although I still miss Boston, this is a good enough compromise! 🙂
Pictures from our adventures will be up soon. (I’m waiting until she puts them online so I can steal them!)
