Beginning to Belong

Time for an update, after a week absence from the blogging world.  I am proud to report that I no longer feel like I am just visiting Boston, I actually am beginning to feel like I belong here.  I have my routines, places I like to eat, and have figured out the TV time changes b/c of eastern time.  Boston is really starting to grow on me!

The past week was mostly work centered, with some roommate bonding time thrown in.  Throughout the week the girl I work with and I got to do walk through's of all the facility set-ups for our sports.  Field Hockey isn't going to be a very difficult set up, but Volleyball is pretty intense.  Thankfully the men's volleyball team helps with it all, because I am not tall enough to put up nets!

We also had a few boat launches from out boat house.  Basically, Harvard groups book dinner tour boats and they dock at the Harvard Boat House.  Since it is an athletic facility we are in charge of it.  Basically all we do is open the doors when they get there, and then go back when they are docking to leave.  Not too hard.

Other than that, work has just been mainly administrative this week.  Still learning a lot to get ready for the upcoming sports!  My first game is Wednesday!!

On a more social side, I have hung out with my roommates this week and have had a blast.  Tuesday we did roommate dinner, Mexican style.  Thanks to Kara, a roommate from Maine, the dinner was fabulous!  Then Friday night Alison (another roommate from Maine) and I ventured into the Back Bay area for dinner and a fun night with a few friends (Allin-one of Kara's friend we met a few weeks ago, and Allin's two friends from New York).  The area was really cool!  Saturday Alison and I spent most of the day on the couch, and then went to see Eat Pray Love in Harvard Square.  After that we met up with some of her friends from school, and I got to meet some more awesome Mainers! 

Then, I like to call Sunday "The Day of Food".  We went to the Breakfast Club for lunch and I had the most amazing meatloaf, mashed potatoes and asparagus (which I ate every bite of).  Then Alison and I went to the grocery stores to pick up supplies to make these (these aren't our actual ones, but the online pic):
Just imagine: sugar cookies, peanut butter, melted chocolate and marshmallow fluff.  All I am can say it YUMMY!  These were like heaven to eat.  Then Phil, one of the roommates, made ravioli for dinner.  So, basically all I did on Sunday was eat and eat and eat. 

Some of you may not understand the humor in the following picture that I am using to close my blog today, but those of you on that adventurous Spring Break in the RV will get it.  Never in a million years did I think I would see this on the streets of Boston, MA:

I will update you on life again soon!


  1. HAHAHA!! did you go meet the rvers?

  2. Haha, no I didn't get to meet them. They were driving past as I was walking down the road.

  3. How come you never made cookies like that in Hattiesburg?

  4. I didn't know they existed when I was there, however you should try making them, they are wonderful!!

  5. Yeah I have to give you a hard time since I am the Cookie Monster of Hattiesburg!
