Hey everybody! It’s me, Mary! I am a sophomore (which is so weird to say) setter and I hope everyone is having an awesome summer. I’m here to tell you about what I have been doing this summer, so let’s get right into it!
After my last finals week of freshman year, it was so nice to go home and de-stress. I got to see some of my closest friends, hang out with family for a few days, and soon get to work! Working this summer has been HUGE for me. I have two jobs right now, I am a waitress at a cute restaurant in town and I also babysit a few days a week. I try to keep my days busy so I have some structure and don’t just sit around all day.
It has been great to spend some time with family since I’ve been home. My mom, dad, sisters, and I went to a Yankees game all together and it was so much fun. It was actually my first ever MLB game and it was great to experience it with my family!
I’ve gone on a few adventures so far this summer. A lot of times, my friends and I will go on hikes or watch the sunset over the mountains from a scenic spot. It’s pretty much the only thing to do around where I live, so we I to take advantage of it. There’s plenty of waterfalls, overlooks, and just places to go to sit and relax if you are looking for a good view. One of my favorite things we did was going to a drive-in movie theater. It was a perfect night for a movie, but I may or may not have fallen asleep.¯\_(ツ)_/¯
My second adventure was the trip to LOOONGGG Island! It was so great to catch up with some GSUVB girls. All the girls upstate took a nice road trip for a few days to Long Island and we stayed at Kiersten’s and got Ralph’s Italian Ice, we stayed at Shea’s for a day and swam at her house and ate bagels, and our final destination was in Long Beach to stay with gabby and have a beach day! Some of us got a nice tan, others got a nice burn (Allison, LOL) but we all had an awesome time.
