So I have some catching up to do...

Rewind to Monday the 17th... my best friend from grade school and high school called me up with an extra ticket to the Eagles home game. We had a great time despite our team's loss! We had 9th row seats up from the field!!!!


Work has been wild and crazy! I'm back out in the field... but not under the Jersey Turnpike! I've been inspecting the installation of stone columns by Hayward Baker in Trenton, NJ.

We (explanation to come) went on a camping trip this past weekend tp Susquehanna State Park. We being me, my bf, my roomie, her bf, and DC (the guy who was our concrete canoe coach). It was an awesome weekend! Ignoring the bit of rain on Saturday morning (which was over by the time we got up and out of the tent), the weather was beautiful! We took two canoes and a kyaak out on the Chesapeake Bay... which was quite an experience as we were used to the calm waters of Marsh Creek Lake. We cooked great food over the campfire... I LOVE campfires and campfire food!!!!! Saturday morning we (the 20 something bunch) woke up with a turtle in our tent... hmmmmmmm. It was a cute little thing. :) Coach thought it would be funny to see my roomie's reaction. (This was her first camping trip). It was too bad that our other canoe buddy and her fiancee couldn't join us for the weekend. It was soo much fun! Perhaps it will become an annual event for the last weekend of summer.

This week starts the new school year here at Drexel. This means no more nice parking spaces available on the streets, drunken freshmen, loud parties, and all of the stress that comes with classes! I'll be taking a Finite Element Analysis course this term... please pray for me! I'm also going to try to continue singing in the Chorus... we'll have to see how that goes. I missed most of the first rehearsal last night, but at least I was able to pick up my music.

Well, I must unpack from camping so that I can repack to spend a night or two up at the jobsite. I have the option of staying or driving back and forth; so, I think I'll change it up a bit and do some of each.
