First, let me thank everyone for keeping me in their thoughts. My situation at home has been resolved by me moving to a new house! My roommate Alison and I decided that the best solution would be to find a new house to move to, and we are now settled in at the new place. We have now been there for about 2 weeks, and so far it is much better. The moving process was quite stressful, but everything is done now. I will try to take some pictures and post later of the new place. We still live in the same area, and I am still able to walk to work. So everything worked out well!

As for work, things have really picked up and I love it!! I have had a few field hockey games, and we had our first home football game. Field hockey setup and game management has become quite routine, and I have begun to really enjoy watching the sport. It is an extremely athletic sport, and I feel like I learn new rules and aspects of the game at every one I attend. Football was a completely different experience for me, coming from the SEC. My role was basically just providing support where needed on game day, so I got to help out with a recruiting BBQ. It was extremely interesting noting the differences from my experience with Auburn recruiting to this event. The event was a large BBQ (burgers and hot dogs cooked by the coaches and staff) for all sports that had recruits in for the weekend. It was a much more relaxed and simple event than what I was used to with football recruiting. Basically I just floated around, made sure food didn't run out, and made sure no one was there that shouldn't be. And of course I got to enjoy the food! During the game, we stood on the sidelines for the first half, and the second half we collected tables and signs that had been placed out before the game. Then, my job was done for the night. This game occurred on the same night that Auburn played Clemson. So as soon as the game was done, my roommate and I headed into the square to find a TV to catch the end of the game. Wow, I got to tune in right as the stress began. Glad Auburn pulled through!

Work was slower last week, I only had one field hockey game. I went to the Red Sox game on Tuesday with the other interns at work. Lots of fun! Then on Thursday, I flew back down south!!
I flew to Hattiesburg on Thursday night to visit my roomie Caroline, because her birthday was the previous Monday. I had loads of fun, got to see lots of people I miss, and ate a ton of good food! I really enjoyed my time with everyone! I got to drive Caroline's car, I was totally afraid I had forgotten how to drive. I got to eat at all the yummy places I have missed (even though I have found some good food here, I must say the South has better food-might be why Mississippi is the fattest state). I got to lay out by the pool, because 65 degree weather doesn't exist in South Mississippi yet. And I got to watch a full Auburn game on TV, from beginning to end. This was the first one I had watched all season, and it was a good one! Then on Sunday, it was time for me to fly back. And I had quite a long day at the airport. My flight was supposed to go to Memphis and then to Boston, however due to flight delays I had to switch to flying into Atlanta then to Boston. But I did get upgraded to first class, so that was nice! Got home at 1:00 am this morning, and headed into work at 9:00 am.
