New Paltz is right around the corner as spring break comes to a close. I’m gonna do a really quick summary of what I have donne so far this spring break, and if anyone wants to share their stories of what they did/will be doing, I’d totally love to hear it!
Thursday night (3/15): I came back to Long Island a day early! I had to do some observations Friday in the morning for my observations class, so I got a 6:25 bus with Adirondack Trailways! (www.trailwaysny.com) This is the way that most of us college kids get home if we don’t have a car. You could go into the city with Trailways, to Port Authority, or you can go to any other major town in Long Island and Upstate, New York.
Friday (3/16): My first full day home! In the morning, I observed at a place called OTOhealth Hearing Care Centers. There are quite a few of tem, but I went to the East Islip office. After a fun day of observing, I went to my best friend’s 21st birthday party at night. There was a great turn out to that!
Saturday (3/17): Absolutely nothing fun happened here. I went out east to a town called Shirley to do my taxes. BOOORING. Oh, and did I mention I got $10 back? Oh well, paid for my lunch when I went to Nathan’s with my friend Paul!
Sunday (3/18): My friend from school, Safire, came to visit for a few days! Safire, Paul and I went to Long Beach and walked the boardwalk. We watched two movies (Step Brothers and …. something I obviously cannot remember ) We then went to 5 Guys Burgers and Fries for dinner, and finally settled down with a game of Monopoly on Paul’s iPad.
Monday (3/19): Monday, Safire and I went to Roosevelt Field Mall with Helaina, Kim and Ali after I had my college financial planner dude. This is something I think people should see if they aren’t a native islander! It takes literally a whole day to really walk that mall. I got one really cute shirt from Aero, which I’m really hit and miss with them. After that, we came back home for dinner and then we went out for italian ices. The rest of the night was just laundry and lounging.
Tuesday (3/20): Safire went to the city to meet up with her roommate since I had more observations to do! This time, I went to a place in West Babylon village. That area is really cute! It’s a one way busy bustling little town with a lot of old architecture. Everything about it was really cute, even the street signs! After observing from 2-5, I just wanted to rest.
Wednesday (3/21): Yesterday, I saw my frriend Laura. I got to drive, which is really nice because it’s not something I always get to do and usually her mom has to take us places which I always feel REALLY bad about. We went to Kohls, Famous Footwear, and Chili’s for dinner. I realize that all there is to do in Long Island is shop and dine. Oh well, I am learning to control my finances better! All I got was a dress and a shirt. Then, last night Paul came over and we watched Billy Madison and lounged around.
Thursday (3/22): Today I spent time with my grandma! We drove around Massapequa, and got lunch at All American. (http://allamericanhamburger.us/) They have been voted in AOL’s Best Burger places back when AOL was famous. I got two pairs of shoes… which one can never have enough of. Oh well, I’m done shopping for this week hopefully!!
Rest of the break? Well, tomorrow is going to be a family day and then Saturday I am hanging with Helaina, Kim, Ali and Laura. I think I am *probably* sleeping over Helaina’s house because then we’re going back to New Paltz Sun morning! So excited hehe I think I want to try to start working out, but it’s so hard for me because I have health problems that get in the way of that… oh well. First thing’s first, time to start eating healthier!
Well, now that you all got to hear my boring rants… you can see how busy I have been and why I have not been posting as much! I will try to keep you all updated though. OH AND IF ANYONE GOES TO SEE THE HUNGER GAMES TONIGHT — HAVE FUN!! It’s all over every media outlet available — as it deserves to be but yeah. Craziness! Anyway talk to you all later!
